Courage and Relationships: Why It’s The Secret Ingredient For Lasting Love

Facebook Share Graphic

What does courage have to do with your relationship? The answer is: well everything! The more you care about someone, the more you need it.

“When it comes to our relationships, we tend to think that communication is our number one challenge. It’s not. Our biggest hurdle in relationships is our ability to show up for the conversation. Without the courage to show up, we’ll decide to keep sitting on what’s bothering us until…” said Staci Bartley, who along with Tom Bartley host the weekly program. “We either give up on having the conversation at all after several failed attempts or rip our partner’s face off because we’ve finally had enough. This is exactly what happens when we don’t have the courage to show up for a conversation.”

“Because Tom and I know courage is also needed for healthy relationships; this conversation is sure to be one that will change the way you face the challenges of love too,” she said.

In this episode, they’re covering several key topics about why courage is the secret ingredient for lasting love, including:

  • What keeps us from really pursuing the relationships and careers we deserve?
  • Why do we hold ourselves back from being fully seen and heard as our real selves?
  • The three human predicaments that cause most people to live smaller, timid lives.
  • How can we avoid the #1 regret most people have in life.
  • The three mindsets that are critical for a life of courageous action.
