Why You Don't Have The Love You've Always Dreamed Of
This morning I was reading a book and I came across the following parable:
A story is told of a thief in ancient times who stole a magnificent coat. The coat was made of the finest materials including buttons of silver and gold. When he returned to his friends after selling the coat to a wealthy merchant in the marketplace, his closest friend asked him how much he had sold the coat for.
"A hundred pieces of silver," was his reply.
"You mean to tell me you only got a hundred pieces of sliver for that magnificent coat?!" asked his friend.
"Is there a number higher than a hundred?" asked the thief?
If I asked you if you wanted amazing, electric, passionate, lasting, committed, trusting, compassionate, patient, giving, forgiving love... you'd probably say, "Yes! Absolutely!"
I'll be honest, you're not unique. Everybody says they want that kind of love. Everybody... But it probably doesn't describe the love you have.
Because you settle. You stop practicing. You stop learning, growing, and putting in the effort. You're busy. You're committed to other things. You become resigned and make excuses like, "Well, this is just my reality. It's not going to get better than this."
I would assert that it's very likely that your love life is be your "100 silver pieces!"
You don't even think to ask for or want more, because you don't even realize that there is more than what you have!
The beautiful thing about love is that it can ALWAYS get better... and wanting it to be better is not bad! It's a really really good thing!
It doesn't matter how bad or how good your love life is, there is ALWAYS room for more connection, more commitment, more passion, more forgiveness, more understanding, more unity, and more adventure.
The world needs more of these things! Your life, your family, your friendships, your romantic relationship... they would all benefit from more of these things!
So now the real question is are you willing to do the work to create more of this "better" love in your life?
Are you willing to ask for what you need? Are you willing to ask others what they need to give you what you need? Are you willing to study, ask for help, try something new... and maybe fail, explore unfamiliar territory?
If you're ready to take the leap and stop settling for 100 silver pieces when there's an entire treasury waiting for you to reach out and pick it up, I want you to be a part of Love School.
Love School is 6 weeks of love training. Every Tuesday at 9:00 ET (8:00 CT, 7:00 MT, 6:00 PT) we will have a phone call about how you can create the type of relationship you say you want instead of just talking about it.
You can't get what you want by doing what you've always done. This course and this community is being created for you because it's time for you to have more.
I hope you are committed to creating incredible love, and I really hope to see you in class!
