I keep my agreements with myself and others.
I take impeccable care of myself.
I take full responsibility for my own happiness and success.
I respect, respond and co-operate in all my relationships.

What is a Partnership?
A partnership is an arrangement in which parties agree to cooperate to advance their mutual interests
Spiritual Partnership
This is two or more people who are focused on inspiring and being inspired by one another.
How are feelings associated with Partnership?
Partners are appreciative and happy when their mutual interests are fulfilled.
The attraction will be toward their mutual interest rather than each other.
Who are your partners?
Everyone is a partner who cooperates in advancing what is in the best interest of all.

Types of Partnerships:
Employer-Employee co-operate to advance the mutual interests of a successful workplace.
Husband-Wife co-operate to create a successful marriage and living arrangement.
Father-Mother co-operate to create successful parenting.
Business Partners co-operate to advance the success of their business.

What are these partnerships for?
Partnerships are mutually agreed upon by informed and consenting adults or by the circumstances.
We partner in order to create the functions needed for greater respect, responsibility and cooperation.
When partners are aware, participating and contributing fully, there is greater success in outcome.
When partners disagree or oppose one another, the likelihood of positive outcome is diminished.

Success is determined by the goals and intentions of the partners.
Success comes with Agreement on Goals, Honesty and Integrity, Equality and Respect, Commitment to what is Best for Each, Responsibility for the Outcome without guilt or blame.
Successful partnerships communicate and learn continuously with ever the natural growth and evolution of the relationship depending on individual’s personal growth.
Partners communicate their changes with honesty and respect and accept other’s changes as well.

Successful Partnerships that last are committed to an outcome that transcends their personal needs.
When there is conflict in any relationship, it is usually because one or more individuals are not living true to their own purpose.
When we do not honor ourselves, we may try to affect change in another.
When we are honoring our own calling, we respect others and mind our own business.

Successful partnership demands that we live our life true to ourselves.
Partnerships are temporary when we are seeking to get something for ourselves rather than give all we have for the good of all.

I am committed to be joined, honest, giving and responsible for the Good of All.
I partner with others in what is for the Highest Good I know.
I live an inspired life of partnership with the intention of benefiting all those I encounter.
We are partners in remembering to Love,

Successful Relationships

To have successful relationships with partners, spouse, coworkers, teammates, children there are five essential factors: Joining, Honesty, Equality, Commitment, Responsibility.

Joining: All parties must share a common goal or vision for their relationship. This shared vision comes from communication regarding the needs of each individual, their vision for the future and what they share in common.

Honesty: Honest communication is sharing what really matters with no blame, guilt or withholds.
Honest is a byproduct of integrity, living one’s life on purpose with openness and appreciation.

Equality: When both parties are giving their best in each moment, there is equality.  Equality is not measured by comparison: it is experienced when there is the willingness to give one’s best even when it is less than the other.  To quit or hold back on one’s giving creates inequality.

Commitment: To commit to the fulfillment of the desired vision or goal and to the success of the relationship requires always choosing what is best for both.  Decisions are based on what is a win/win for all concerned.  One must be committed to what is highest and best for each party.

Responsibility: Being fully able and willing to respond to whatever is needed to create success through joining, honesty, equality and commitment is being fully responsible.  Where there is guilt or blame being communicated, there is inequality and victimization as well as lack of responsibility.

To be successful requires staying conscious.
To be successful requires a willingness to communicate with respect.
To be successful requires an acceptance of differences.
To be successful requires open-minded and appreciation of all parties.

To take on unconscious patterns of dysfunctional family systems will limit the success of one’s joining, honest communication, true willingness to give., total commitment to what is best for all and assuming full responsibility for the quality of the relationship.

If you want success and fulfillment in your relationships, begin today to observe what you can do to improve them in every way.  You need not depend upon the other changing in order to increase the quality of your relating.

Blessings for choosing a better way,
