Why We Let People Push Us Around – HMDP #71
It’s time to talk about people pushing us around. I don’t know about you, but there have definitely been times in my life where I’ve felt that I’ve been unheard, left behind, pushed back or under-valued.
Sure, I’m your dating coach and I can talk specifically about love, but you know this can bleed into other parts of your life. For example, when I work with really high powered and amazingly successful women, I often find that maybe, just maybe, sometimes a few can still get left behind and undervalued in their relationships. This hurts me so much to see this.
So last night I spent hours and hours pondering this. Consolidating all my experience with working with people into one sentence, to really powerfully help people with this…
… and do you know what I found?
I found that it comes down to purpose. What is your purpose? Do you know how to find out how you want to live the rest of your life?
Purpose doesn’t have to be this profound meaning, it can even be a list of things that you want to do with your life. In this week’s podcast, we dive so bloody deep into this it is insane.
Think of it this way:
If you know how you want to live your life, then anybody pushing you around is just getting in the way. You’d naturally move them out of the way or ask them to be involved.
Bad relationships? You better believe this would sort that out. Why would you let yourself be in a bad relationship if you have a life to live?
Relationship feel like it’s going nowhere? You better believe that having a sense of purpose for your life would turn that around. The big problem I find with people is when people see their relationship as the sole provider of joy in their life. It can be, but if you have something more to live for, something that makes you take life by the reins & squeeze the most out of it… you better believe that having bad relationships in your life will have to be sorted out first.
So please, if you’ve enjoyed reading this, listen to this week’s podcast. It’ll dive deep into this and I’ll even reveal my own purpose.
