The “language” of success

(4) LEARN “LANGUAGE”

I really had no idea that gently touching the back of her neck as I walked by meant the world to Carrie.

Just as much as she didn’t know that brewing me a mug of green tea for no reason had just as big an impact on me.

Because 5 years ago, we weren’t trying to learn about each other.

You fall in love.

But you have to create a relationship.

And that involves learning your partner’s “language”.

For Carrie, touch is the irreplaceable signal of love.

For me, it’s the thoughtful nature of a kind token.

Me simply being conscious and aware that pausing my work in the middle of a given day to impromptuly get out of my seat, pick her up in my arms and bury my face in her neck for 60 seconds will have her “feeling” my love, admiration and respect for hours.

For Carrie, being mindful that doing an unexpected kind gesture will have me enchanted, appreciative and puppy-dog-in-love for the rest of the day.

And that’s the important thing.

Random cuddles don’t “do it” for me.

Just the same as random acts don’t “do it” for her.

5 years ago, we were too busy being stand-offish about what we weren’t receiving in our relationship to bother taking the time to understand what we should be giving more of.

And this leads to the final point perfectly…

… Which we’ll email you tomorrow.

Until then, let us know what you think below.

Brian & Carrie
