Coaching Topic of the Month
I would like to start off by saying congratulations to all of our newest IJL couples! Nothing makes us happier than hearing our clients have found the person they were looking for and are now officially in an exclusive relationship! Recently, I have noticed a pattern with a lot of my clients who are now in relationships, so here are a few consistencies I thought would be nice to share:
Staying Positive Can Make a Difference
We all know dating can be hard and a bit frustrating at times. However, I’ve noticed that my clients who have maintained the most positive outlook have had the best experience, and ultimately the best possible outcome - a relationship! You can drastically improve your chances of finding the right person by looking for the good in every date.
Be Open to New People and Experiences
It’s easier for most people to just stay within their comfort zones - to stick with what they know. Many people treat dating the same way and like to date people who are similar to them, or have the exact same interests. However, I’ve noticed that many of our clients who are stepping outside of the box and staying open to exploring another person’s interests have had great success in finding that right relationship. You may have never gone to a country music concert or considered yourself a soccer fan, but trying something new will not only expand your horizons, it will also help you develop a great relationship!
Don’t Be Afraid to Take a Chance
Go for it! Ask for his/her number. Plan a second date and see where it goes. You will NEVER know the potential of a relationship if you don’t get yourself out there and try. Even if you aren’t feeling a connection 100% on the first date, that does not mean it won’t get to that point. So many of my clients that are now in meaningful, real relationships didn’t necessarily feel a strong connection right off the bat!
