A good relationship requires you not only to merely just meet her needs, but to exceed her expectations. Ok, you say this can’t possibly be done, well….have you ever tried? Thought so.
Exceeding your spouse’s expectations can be done without her having to ask you to or you having to proclaim your intent. Let’s face it; if she doesn’t know what you are shooting for, then she doesn’t know when you miss. So what is the harm in trying? Go ahead, give it a try.
You may be surprised of the results you achieve with only a little extra effort. Meeting your spouse’s needs is the very minimum requirement in a marriage, sort of like breathing and eating (its necessary to even exist). However, exceeding her expectations is an opportunity for you to invest in her and your relationship.
If you are honest with yourself, you probably already excel at and exceed in many areas in your life like golf, fitness, video games, fantasy football, fishing, and working out, maybe even at work! What is the common denominator with those activities that makes you excel in those activities? I would argue that it is your commitment, dedication, passion and extreme amounts of effort. Now what if, stay with me now, you invested the very same passion you exhibit currently for any of these activities, and redirected them toward your spouse?
How might your relationship with your spouse improve? How would your life be different?
One thing for sure is that you will never know unless you try. So start by not just simply meeting her needs, exceed her expectations!
