Happy Monday! It’s the beginning of the week and we get another chance to do things all over but better.
Have you ever stopped to think about where your marriage is headed? Yeah, have you really stopped and thought about what you want from your marriage & what you plan to put into your marriage?
We make plans for everything else in our lives but sometimes we fail to plan our marriage. “If you fail to plan, then you plan to fail.”
There are 3 directions your marriage is headed:
- No Direction*=confusion + insecurity + no action
- Unclear Direction*=stress + insecurity + fatigue + poor productivity
- Clear Direction*= action + acceleration + confidence + maximum productivity
When you fail to plan, your marriage has no direction.
You guys have discussed your marriage and what you want for your marriage; however, you have not put anything into action. You have unclear direction.
Hey, my husband and I talk regularly about our marriage, what we are doing, how we plan to accomplish everything we have set out to do, & we frequently revisit our marriage mission to make any adjustments and/or to make sure our actions are aligned with our values. If this is your marriage, you have clear directions.
Don’t allow your marriage life to happen by change. Take control of who, what, when, and how in all aspects of your marriage.
Communicate + Action= Strong Marriage
In which direction is your marriage headed?
