The Keys to a Healthy Relationship & How to Deal with Conflict


Help me understand this. Why does it seem that relationships take a backseat when it comes to self improvement? Oftentimes, you’ll hear things like, “I need a partner to accept me for me” or “If you can’t handle me at my worst, you don’t deserve me at my best”. While the intention behind these statements is well and good, if you aren’t careful, it can be easy to fall into the trap of not bringing the same energy you bring to improving your business, your physical health, and your mental health to relationships.

Now, I want you to imagine what it would look like if you did. Whether you’re already in a relationship or searching for one, how much would your life improve if you applied intentional self development to relationships? How much happier would you, your partner, or your future partner be? 

In Part 2 of my conversation with Erwin McManus, he shows us how he approaches building a healthy, long-lasting relationship. And let me tell you, this was a powerful one! Please help me welcome back the one-and-only, Erwin McManus, for Part 2 of my interview with him!
