What do you associate relationships with?

Have you ever heard the expression, “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with”? This phrase was popularized by Jim Rohn and describes how your associations have a significant impact on the success you ultimately attain in life including intimate relationships.

What do you associate relationships with, pain or pleasure? Take some to really think about this question because your beliefs can help you attract the very thing you do or do not want.

Try this exercise. Write down what you believe relationships are, example

Relationships are :-

  • Hard work
  • Painful
  • Exciting
  • Dishonest
  • Scary
  • Loving etc

Write a list of a least 20 beliefs you have about relationships. Write them down quickly without too much thinking so you get a a good look at what you are unconsciously thinking. You can then start to change any thoughts and beliefs to align to what you really want to experience in a loving relationship. You may be surprised what you’ve been thinking all along. If you want to challenge any negative associations or beliefs, then ask yourself where the negative beliefs came from and are they really true.
