21 Irrefutable Laws of Relationship With Your Spouse. Rule No. 2: Law of Acceptance

Continuing on my post of 21 Irrefutable Laws of Relationship With Your Spouse, rule no. 2 is to accept your spouses as who they really are. Encourage their growth to be a better person, but do not try to change them into someone you want them to be.

Even though they do not see eyes to eyes on things with you, try to respect them and their decisions. Remember, things are not just white and black. There are always gray area. People do not have to be wrong to make you right.

Love them even though their secret identities are exposed...............for e.g. your girlfriend may not be as ladylike as she seems to be.


Sometimes, you will not get what they are thinking and why they are behaving in certain ways. Sometimes, you do not even need to understand in order to accept. Just accept them as who they are.....as long as their core values are still there (they are not inhuman or evil person)


That's all for today!
Do refer to my previous post on 21 Irrefutable Laws of Relationship With Your Spouse series. Hope I have more time to post on this topic more often. :)

TEAM - Are you a hare, owl, turtle or squirrel?

I just picked up The One Minute Millionaire by Mark Victor Hansen and Robert G. Allen and found it to be very enlightening.

I like the "Multiple Streams of Income" and "Together Everyone Accomplishes Miracles - TEAM" concept.

For team concept, to create wealth - one must first build a diverse team as success is not a solo project. The diverse team consisted of four different categories of workers, known as the Hares, the Owls, the Tortoise, and the Squirrels. Each one has own strengths to leverage on to make the team successful.

Hare - Creative Types, but bad at follow-through.
Owls - Planners and go-getters.
Turtles - Cautious Types who point out issues.
Squirrels - Details oriented person who get the job done.

The one-minute millionaire site offer a survey to determine which type of worker you are. I found out to be a Hare, which I had guessed right. Here is the link to take the survey:

21 Irrefutable Laws of Relationship With Your Spouse. Rule No. 4: Law of Bullying Each Other

All of us are definitely no saints, so I guess, there are times we want to be a little bit cruel and act like a spoiled King or Queen.

I supposed most of us cannot behave like King or Queen in the workplace. If not, we risk being fired by our bosses or receive complaints from our colleagues. So, the best person where we can vent our frustration and madness are usually at our other half. Poor thing. Who say love has to be beautiful all the time?

Anyway, as long as we have fun bullying each other, it will be something exciting that we share in the relationship. Caution is - it has to be two-ways. When it is only one-sided, the relationship will stand a chance of being miserable, at least for the person who always get bullied. It also means, if you always get bullied, try to pick up the game and retaliate.

Do note that physical harm or aggressive behaviors are strictly not what I am talking about here. If your partner ever lay a hand on you so much as to cause you pain or small bruises, dum…

Myers-Briggs Type Indicator which based the test on 16 personality types is popular among big corporation like Coco-Cola. While the cost to take the test is very high, there are several advantages of knowing what type of employees or colleagues you have. Once we know, it is easier to understand others differences in personality , work-styles and learn to deal with the different personalities. Ultimately, the team can work better together.The 16 personality types are derived from the eight basic personality preferences, mainly:Extroversion vs. Introversion
Where do I get my energy? From the external world or people (extroverts), or from data, ideas, or things (introverts).
