Dating Dilemmas of Successful Women: Eight Steps to Find Lasting Love
If you want to find true love, you must make it a priority.
With the new year in full swing and Valentines Day coming near, I have an important question for you: What steps are you taking to find lasting love? With a successful, loving guy?
Imagine if you were losing your job or wanted to make more money; looking for one would be your absolute priority. You’d spend hours networking, calling recruiters, developing a strategy to get promoted, or work with a business coach. And you wouldn’t give up. Sure, you might have some bad days—in fact you’d expect some challenges. But as a smart, powerful woman, you’d pick yourself back up, knowing that if you stayed the course, you’d get what you want.
Make Finding Lasting Love a Top Priority
That’s how I want you to approach finding lasting love this year. I want you to make it an absolute priority, knowing that if you stay the course, you will get the relationship you want. No more excuses. No more giving up after a few bad dates.
Now I know what you’re thinking: if it is meant to be, it will just happen. But the truth is, would you approach any other goal in your life with this mind-set?
Yes, divine timing plays a roll. But, as the saying goes, luck happens when preparation meets opportunity. Mr. Right could be behind you in the checkout line, but if you’re not ready and in the right confident mindset, you might never turn around to see him.
To help you make love a priority this year, take these eight steps to find lasting love
1. Create a love intention for the year.
What do you want when it comes to a relationship? For example, I have meet a loyal, fun-loving, commitment-ready man and we are in a true partnership. Read more on how one doctor created a love intention followed by being engaged to a great guy.
2. Create a sacred space or altar
Place your love intention or an affirmation within a beautiful box or an altar. For example, you could affirm something like, “I find lasting love.” Be sure to thank the universe for sending you the perfect partner each and every day. Because gratitude helps manifest those affirmations.
3. Follow your bliss!
When you’re happy you shine and have true charisma—everyone does! You will attract more potential partners. So commit to doing at least one thing that brings you joy each day. For example, get back into the hobbies and activities you love but haven’t done in a while.
4. Try online dating or a dating app.
More and more people are meeting online these days, and it’s an easy way to meet new men. The key to success online is to see this as a fun process — don’t take it too seriously. For example, expect to get some awkward emails. So be prepared to laugh.
5. If your dating app or site seems stale, go to a new one!
Shake things up and meet new people! Each app or site attracts different types.
6. Write yourself an email every day about three things, large or small that you appreciate about yourself.
Finding lasting love and a soulmate flows from your own self-love.
7. If you’re sick of dating, take a break for a little while!!!!
Find new ways to create joy in your life! For example, go shopping for healing gemstones that make you feel better. Synchronicity will take over and create wonderful miracles and bring you whatever you need to take the next right action to create more love in your life. Just don’t let this break turn into a year-long excuse.
8. Surround yourself with people who nurture and encourage you to be your best self.
Remember that saying that you become the product of the people you spend the most time with? It’s true! So go ahead and look for friends who are your best cheerleaders. On the other hand, be sure to avoid the naysayers. Instead, find a love mentor who is in a great relationship. In the same way, you’d find a business mentor to help navigate your career. there’s no question that a love mentor who has successfully created a positive relationship in her life can make all the difference in yours.
When you make love a priority and understand the best way to approach dating and embody your most confident self, you can create the relationship of your dreams and find lasting love. In fact, many women in our coaching program have done just that! We even had one woman get engaged to a great guy (who was dragging his feet in committing to her) after she had only one session of coaching!
