In this edition of Life Leadership and the NFL, we are going to focus on marriage relationships. As someone who has been married 26 times ( to the same gorgeous woman) and written a #1 Bestselling book on the subject, many consider us experts. What we are experts in, is simply being intentional on creating a Marriage of Greatness .
One key to a marriage of greatness, is making sure things are working for both parties. Tom Brady just had a two hour tell all radio interview where he openly talked about he and Gisele’s marriage. He revealed that things were NOT working for both of them:
“Her point was, ‘Well yeah of course this works for you. It all works for you but it doesn’t work for me,'” he explained. “Because you can get caught up in your life where you think a relationship’s great because it only works for you. And the point of a relationship, it has to work for both. You better work on both cause if you don’t then ultimately it’s not just sustainable.”
The great news is, a Marriage of Greatness is sustainable, and no it doesn’t take two people. It just takes you, that’s right, you can not control your spouse, you can only control YOUR actions and YOUR attitude. For things to improve in your marriage, you must improve, it’s that simple.
So take a tip from the greatest of all time QB’s and choose to be intentional in your marriage, remember, you & your spouse can just go through life like everyone else, or you can GROW through life together. Growth really does = happiness.
