Why You Get To Experience What You Bring To A Relationship!
by Mastin Kipp on December 14, 2011
Hey guys! It’s Mastin – blogging LIVE from Day 5 of Tony Robbins epic Seminar – “Date With Destiny”:
Yesterday was relationship day! I came last year and this day is my favorite day. There was SO much packed into the day that it would be impossible to distill it down to just one blog.
But there is one thing that Tony said yesterday that was just so true. He said – “You get to experience what you BRING to a relationship!”
Just hearing those words is amazing. So many people get into a relationship to “get” and that is why – when you get to people who want to take in a relationship with each other, both end up empty. And what each person is bringing in that case is lack. And so when you bring the lack, you feel it and live it.
We all have filters through which we see life. It could be the filter of a past relationship, rules that we learned from our parents or culture growing up. We have expectations of what a relationship should be. But – remember, life isn’t how you see it; YOU ARE how you see life.
That’s what’s beautiful about this whole thing. Life and our relationship with it is a mirror of ourselves. We get to experience from life what we bring to it. We get to experience what we bring to it.
If our partner is sad and we bring judgment, we separate. If our partner is sad and we bring love, we have the opportunity to come together. If there is a problem in life and we bring a victim mentality, we feel powerless. If there is a problem in life and we bring a grateful attitude, we see a gift. It’s all up to us.
So – what is your relationship like right now? Or, if you’re single – what is your life like right now? Make a list of what’s missing either in your life or in your relationship.
I’ll wait – take a second and just do it…
Ok – done?
So now look… Are you a victim of this list or is this list a gift asking you to grow? We have to become the people it takes to get the relationship and/or life that we want. That is the gift of goal setting. That is the gift of your partner. It’s all asking you to integrate and become more of who you are. It’s asking you to grow and the put Love first. To no longer look to take from your relationship, but to show up and give and meet all of your partner’s needs.
Your relationship and life is a reflection of what you are bringing to it. So – what are YOU bringing to your life today and what would you like to change and bring instead? And who would you have to become to do this? Let me know:WhatImGoingThru@TheDailyLove.com
