Maintaining Self-Love in a Relationship

“Self-love is not selfish; you cannot truly love another until you know how to love yourself.”  

Self love is the foundation to any successful relationship. When you’re in love it is easy to put your partner’s needs ahead of yours. Ignite Your Potential professionals have curate tips to help you maintain and grow your self-love while loving others.

Maintain Mental and Physical Health

Keeping your mind and body healthy exemplifies your love for yourself. In order to keep your mind healthy, avoid ignoring or dismissing your feelings. If you support others, when you are not mentally balanced, you will become drained, mentally and physically. Consider seeing a therapist or coach to cultivate mental wellness. Smart people see therapists and coaches in order to review what is going on in their minds and with their emotions. It’s a space to process all the things you experience day to day. 

“Mind and body are not separate, what affects one, affects the other.”

Alone Time

Alone time gives you space to self-reflect, track your goals, and grow as an individual. It’s hard to dedicate attention to your own needs if you are often preoccupied with someone else or with your work life. Include “me” time in your schedule to do something you genuinely enjoy. Your quality of life will thrive.

“When we can be alone, we can enjoy time with others without using them as a means to escape.”

Know Your Worth

Develop a relationship with yourself first, in other words, be your own best friend. Once you recognize your value, others will too. Then, when the right person comes along, it’s a great addition instead of a dependency for self-worth. 

“Your relationship with yourself sets the tone for every other relationship you have.”

Ignite Your Potential coaches, suggest entering relationships as a “whole person” looking for another whole person to blend and share a beautiful life with. As opposed to a “half” looking for another “half” to complete you. This will make a difference in the quality of your relationships. 

“A healthy relationship is when two individuals come together and agree to help make the other person the best version of themselves.”

4 Steps To Get The Mindset Of The Top 5 Percent

We are all guilty of it—wondering why not me?

Our coaching professionals have come up with four habits the prosperous exemplify. Below are a few things that top earners do—and equally as importantly—what they do not do.

1. Pick Up A Self-Improvement Book

Warren Buffett, the third richest man on the globe, has a goal to read 500 pages every single day. He understands that knowledge gained is power. The world’s most successful people attribute their success to their continuous need to learn more. So put down that remote and check out a book that will teach you something.

2. Focus On Getting Paid By Your Results

Results are the real currency of the world, not effort. It does not matter as much if you are the best at a job, if you are not contributing to the bigger picture or the bottom line. To stand out among your peers you have to keep your focus on your impact.

3. Don’t Be Frugal with Your Future

As a multi-millionaire consultant Dan Lok said, “You don’t have a saving problem, you have an income problem.” Start seeing your money as a tool, a resource that can be used to get you where you want to go. Additionally, remember not to focus on your lack of money, but the abundance of money all around you. Put your money to work! Invest in yourself and your future by hiring a career coach.

4. Surround Yourself with Achievers

Mark Ambrose once said, “Show me your friends and I’ll show you your future.” Who you spend the most time with is who you will become, so be intentional. Surround yourself with positive, supportive people who have achieved the goals you are setting for yourself. Develop friendships with those who know it can be done. Look around and make sure your community is focused on self-development, self-improvement, and accomplishing exciting goals.
