The Reason Why My Wife Will Never Leave Me
I’ve been with the same girl for 13 years.
13 years ago, I was in my early twenties and dead flat broker than the western political landscape is in 2016.
I got to that point partly from circumstance but mostly from choice. You see, in my youth my only desire was to be an athlete and also a rock star, so I worked hard at those things and although I was good, they didn’t pay my bills. So I got frustrated and changed the things I wanted to get better at.
But whether I was rocking out on stage with my guitar or doing what I needed to progress my career, I always did one thing and that was that I fought hard to be a little better than I was yesterday. I was always competing with one person: Me from yesterday. And as I still do every day, I try and make the yesterday version of me seem lame compared to today’s version of me. So…
- Whilst everyone is watching football/cricket/Formula-1 /Baking, I am reading books or doing an online course.
- Whilst everyone is watching their 2nd hour of TV, I am connecting with awesome individuals or mentoring professionals.
- Whilst everyone is ‘liking’ Beyoncé’s latest pic on Instagram, I’m… okay maybe I do that too ;-p
But 13 years later, the results of my daily struggle to be better have added up and I now have a bulletproof career and earn more than 99% of the world’s population, I have properties, I have a side business, I have kids who are convinced I can beat up superman and I have a wife who could not imagine her life without me.
Why is that? Am I the best looking guy in the world? No, I’m not. I’m not the richest but I do okay, I’m not the most intelligent but I can hold my own in conversations with my psychiatrist friends.
I sound average, I don’t think I’m special but my wife sees first-hand the effort, the courage, the acceptance of discomfort, the pain that I go through and she respects how I block it out like a woman going through child labour for the 2nd time only to come back and do it again the next day. Does she need me? Puh-lease. My wife is a very successful professional, she does NOT need me but she CHOOSES me. My behaviour, my desire to becoming a better person every day, my commitment to bettering our little world we created is what keeps her coming back
I’m a man on a mission and my wife has seen me go from dead broke to a successful bloke and you know what, she finds it sexy as hell!
My actions, my attitude to life and the way I am with her make her feel like a queen. In return she makes me feel like a King.
My attitude is not a bad one to have and I always try and make it rub off on others, in turn they will shine their positivity back to me.
I have helped a lot of folks with their Career Progression.
