You Make Me SO Happy!

I can’t tell you how many times, as a motivational speaker, I have to “qualify” my ideas with, “This is a generalization.”  Well, THIS one is a generalization.  But this idea is SO great that I encourage you to try it even if you think, “Well, that won’t work for me.”  Just try it.

When your manfriend/husband/boyfriend/whatever does something you like, it is extremely beneficial to acknowledge him in the following way (with sincerity, enthusiasm and positive energy):

“I noticed that you did “x” (whatever it was.)  Honey, you make me so happy!  You truly do!”

Wait! Wait! No one MAKES another person happy, I know!  But what he DID made you happy, right?   So we’re going to ignore all the rules on the “nobody makes another person happy” routine.  Simply tell him he makes you happy.

Believe it or not, he LOVES to make you happy.  And if he knows that something he does will make you happy, then he will do more of it – as long as you remember to tell him it does.  Repeatedly.

I know, I know.  You told him a couple of times that you LIKE it when he does “x”, and you APPRECIATE it when he does “y” but did you tell him it MAKES YOU HAPPY?  And do you continue to tell him?  Those are the golden words and they need to be frequent – and very sincere.

Oh, and one other thing.  Look him in the eyes and smile lovingly when you say it.

Who said relationships were easy?
