10 Little Things Happy Couples Remember To Do Every Day

10 Little Things Happy Couples Remember To Do Every Day

Ancient men discovered fire-making in a not so easy manner of friction. And just like fire-making, starting up and maintaining a good relationship is not an easy task that couple must do for a long period of time.

Relationships start with a spark that will later on turn to flame. And the flame that is present can only go in two ways: it can either be a never-ending sustained fire of love or an ember that will later turn into cold coal.

Thus, it’s very important for couples to take time in doing simple ways to keep the fire burning. So here are top 10 little things happy couples remember to do every day.

1. They provide quality attention to each other.

We already live in a world where everything can just be posted in a wall or can tweeted. It’s quite been an excuse for us not to give too much attention to the people we are with physically. Let’s face it, it’s quite an annoying reality that we all live by especially for couples. And it has been said, time is the most precious gift that you can give to someone. And with time coupled with quality attention, surely a fire will keep on burning.

2. They go the extra mile to help each other.

Our differences send us to quest for our common goals. And as couples, there are plenty of things that can hinder us to understand each other but there is definitely one that will. When we understand each other, we go the extra mile of helping not just ourselves but also our partner to always rekindle the fire that we have. Sometimes, being together for a long period of time make the relationship too fluid. But always make sure that it wouldn’t kill the fire. So a little more understanding for each other everyday will go a long way.

3. They express appreciation.

Time, money and effort are apparent ingredients in a relationship. And while it is true that when you are in a relationship, everything is conjugal, not everything is sent by heaven for free. So when your partner gives you something, always compliment it or at least just say thank you. It never hurts also to return the favor as well.

4. They say Yes.

At times , our partner would ask us favors that we might not like. Or there might be times that we just do not want to give in to their whims. But our momentary submission might mean a lot to them. Sometimes, just say YES!

5. They check in.

Checking into a hotel once in a while gives couple a chance to have a wick of adventure lit up. It’s not everyday that you can do it but checking into a nice hotel overnight will relish a special feeling between the both of you as you relax and reminisce your best memories as lovers.

6. They pucker up.

Puckering up is not just for teenagers. Puckering up among couples is a cute way of sending a clear message that I am enjoying your presence. Probably for us adults, puckering up is also a wholesome way of how we flirt with our partner. Simple yet effective. Pucker up now!

7. They make fun with each other.

Most of the time, being corny and cheesy sets the mood for couples to be stronger and tighter. And there’s no easier way to do this but to be make fun with and of each other. Besides, best of friends bond too much by doing weird things with each other. Why not do it with your honey?

8. They leave sweets notes or even text with each other.

Communication is king in relationship. And the best fuel to keep the fire burning are sweet words coupled with concrete actions. But in days that you can’t be together or being with each other physically is quite impossible, leaving sweet notes and/or text messages will compensate for it. Your partner will just like be a kid who got a penny under his/her pillow from a Tooth Fairy.

9. They tolerate their partner’s little mistakes.

It has been said and it was said all over again: No one is perfect. And each flaw that each of us have can be stitched together into something perfect using the thread of acceptance of other people. And when conflict arises, isn’t it a good way of peacekeeping if we just stay calm and keep the bad words we’re going to say to our partner? We don’t want to create a smoke out of negativity-induced fire. We just want to keep the positive fire burning.

10. They smile when potential conflict fires up.

The idiom “There’s no smoke when there’s no fire” connotes something more of a wildfire rather than a torch of burning passion in a relationship. But when the former persists, a sweet smile will do a small trick of pacifying an onslaught of emotional backfire. If it still doesn’t work, flash another smile again and try to be sweet. Your partner will probably return the favor leading you to a better position of talking things over with a sane mind.

Relationships will always have elements involved paralleling emotions that partners feel in a given period of time. Among these elements, fire sends out a message of warmth and passion. And to sum it up, let me give you a quote of Bruce Lee: “Love is like a friendship caught on fire. In the beginning a flame, very pretty, often hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. As love grows older, our hearts mature and our love becomes as coals, deep-burning and unquenchable.”

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!
