How You Can Enjoy A Relationship By Dating Someone You Don’t Have To Impress

How You Can Enjoy A Relationship By Dating Someone You Don’t Have To Impress

Being in a relationship can be a fulfilling, loving experience – or it can be the total opposite. Some relationships can be stressful and upsetting, especially if you are going out with someone who you feel like you need to impress.
The best relationships are the ones where neither partner feels like they need to impress each other, as they love each other for who they are. Here are 6 things that happen when you are in a relationship with someone you don’t have to impress.

1. You Can Always Be Honest

Date someone who doesn’t make you want to lie. Date someone who won’t laugh at your embarrassing secrets. Date someone who wants to hear all of the stories from your childhood. Date someone who is interested in finding out your dreams and fears. Date someone who listens to you without judging you, someone who understands that everyone make mistakes. Date someone who can comfort you when you tell them sad stories from your past.

2. They Will Still Want To Be In A Relationship With You When You’re Having A Bad Day

Date someone who wants to give you a hug after a hard day, instead of someone who doesn’t like to be around you when you’re in a bad mood. Date someone who supports you through both the good and bad times. Date someone who tells you that you can be yourself and still be loved and cared for. Date someone who still thinks you are amazing, even on your worst days.

3. You Can Be Silly Together

Date someone who you are happy to be silly with. Date someone who embraces your silly side, rather than someone who makes you feel childish or stupid. Date someone who chooses to be silly with you, as it makes them just as happy as it makes you. Date someone who doesn’t expect you to behave in a certain way. Date someone who makes you cry with laughter. Date someone who can always put a smile on your face.

4. They Won’t Care About Status Or Reputation

Date someone who doesn’t worry about what others think of them. Date someone who doesn’t care about impressing other people, because they are too busy having fun and enjoying their life. Date someone who doesn’t care about job titles or status. Date someone who is humble and grateful for what they already have. Date someone who doesn’t try to impress you. Date someone who doesn’t think of people as trophies to be collected.

5. They Will Always Think You Look Beautiful

Date someone who thinks you are truly beautiful, even when you’re tired, ill and pale. Date someone who doesn’t expect you to always make an effort with your appearance. Date someone who regularly compliments you, rather than someone who tries to put you down. Date someone who doesn’t compare you to other people, to make you feel less attractive or undesirable. Date someone who doesn’t think that beauty is the most important trait in a partner, and instead loves you for your personality.

6. They Will Accept You For Who You Are

Most importantly, date someone who accepts you for who you are. Date someone who loves every part of you, even your flaws. Date someone who doesn’t make you feel like you’re losing a race. Date someone who always gives you love and attention, so that you don’t feel like you need to compete for their affections. Date someone who accepts all of your flaws, and loves them. Date someone who tells you that you are perfect as you are. Date someone who doesn’t want to play games, because they are very happy with what they have already have.

How to Motivate People Around You and Inspire Them

How to Motivate People Around You and Inspire Them

If I was a super hero I’d want my super power to be the ability to motivate everyone around me. Think of how many problems you could solve just by being able to motivate people towards their goals. You wouldn’t be frustrated by lazy co-workers. You wouldn’t be mad at your partner for wasting the weekend in front of the TV. Also, the more people around you are motivated toward their dreams, the more you can capitalize off their successes.

Being able to motivate people is key to your success at work, at home, and in the future because no one can achieve anything alone. We all need the help of others.

So, how to motivate people? Here are 7 ways to motivate others even you can do.

1. Listen

Most people start out trying to motivate someone by giving them a lengthy speech, but this rarely works because motivation has to start inside others. The best way to motivate others is to start by listening to what they want to do. Find out what the person’s goals and dreams are. If it’s something you want to encourage, then continue through these steps.

2. Ask Open-Ended Questions

Open-ended questions are the best way to figure out what someone’s dreams are. If you can’t think of anything to ask, start with, “What have you always wanted to do?”

“Why do you want to do that?”

“What makes you so excited about it?”

“How long has that been your dream?”

You need this information the help you with the following steps.

3. Encourage

This is the most important step, because starting a dream is scary. People are so scared they will fail or look stupid, many never try to reach their goals, so this is where you come in. You must encourage them. Say things like, “I think you will be great at that.” Better yet, say, “I think your skills in X will help you succeed.” For example if you have a friend who wants to own a pet store, say, “You are so great with animals, I think you will be excellent at running a pet store.”

4. Ask About What the First Step Will Be

After you’ve encouraged them, find how they will start. If they don’t know, you can make suggestions, but it’s better to let the person figure out the first step themselves so they can be committed to the process.

5. Dream

This is the most fun step, because you can dream about success. Say things like, “Wouldn’t it be cool if your business took off, and you didn’t have to work at that job you hate?” By allowing others to dream, you solidify the motivation in place and connect their dreams to a future reality.

6. Ask How You Can Help

Most of the time, others won’t need anything from you, but it’s always good to offer. Just letting the person know you’re there will help motivate them to start. And, who knows, maybe your skills can help.

7. Follow Up

Periodically, over the course of the next year, ask them how their goal is going. This way you can find out what progress has been made. You may need to do the seven steps again, or they may need motivation in another area of their life.

Final Thoughts

By following these seven steps, you’ll be able to encourage the people around you to achieve their dreams and goals. In return, you’ll be more passionate about getting to your goals, you’ll be surrounded by successful people, and others will want to help you reach your dreams …

Oh, and you’ll become a motivational super hero. Time to get a cape!
