Ahh. Marriage. Love. Liquor.
I don’t believe they go together but, well, hear me out first.
Entering marriage is one of the most serious things that one can get into: the promise of lifelong commitment, of fidelity, of starting a family, of unending love, of taking a vow to cherish someone in sickness and in health, for richer or for poorer, ‘til death do them part. In short, it’s a no-way-out-kind-of-commitment. (Of course, we do have divorce and in some countries, annulment. So, you do have a way out; just a little harder and expensive).
The point is, right from the very moment you popped the question to your loved one, you knew why you were marrying him or her. And, right from the moment you said “yes,” you already knew what the promise of lifelong commitment or partnership entails. As a true romantic, I’d like to believe that you married or will marry for the right reason – LOVE.
But, the harsh reality is that, most people marry for a variety of reasons like getting pregnant at such a young age, forced by parents, wanting to escape something, etc. And when you marry in Vegas, you may have just married out of a drunken stupor, thus, the inspiration for the title of this post.
Ok. So, what’s really my point in discussing marriage?
Not that it’s June, the marry-est month of the year.
I cannot even claim to be a marriage guru. (Although, I’m really happy to note that I have been blessed with a happy marriage for years.)
My Real Point Is:
In everything that we put forth a promise of lifelong commitment, we have to be truly firm with our goals.
- What is our aim?
- What is our reason for entering this partnership?
Same is true when you are doing any kind of business like the MLM business. You need to understand the very core of why you’re doing it in the first place. Once you’ve made that commitment, you have to realize that there will be ups and downs, trials, defeats, failures, and yet, at the end of the day, you ask yourself: why am I here?
And when you go to that safe place of knowing your goals, you persevere, you trod on, and you don’t give up easily.
Unless, you were really, really drunk.
