We often judge others based on their present position out of habit — We need self-awareness skills to recognize this habit in ourselves — Someone with a positive direction is what we really want in a companion — You don’t get phenomenal anything without commitment to continuous improvement — We all intuitively understand direction is more important, but we act according to our habits — Are we patient enough to give people the space to change? — You want to surround yourself with others who broadcast positive energy so you start wanting to improve — Your best life is one that gets better and better and better — If we’re honest with ourselves, we’ll see many of our actions testify we believe position is more important than direction — Our host confesses to making mistakes when he was younger and now wants to orient people’s thinking in a new direction
Our host digs into the Old Testament to illustrate the need to value direction over position — People who cry for others to love them as they are simply make excuses for not bettering themselves and so are championing mediocrity — We should accept people as they are today but not accept people staying that way forever — So what someone’s unemployed right now? That doesn’t mean they always will be — We’ve had multiple microwave generations that all want what they want right now — Success is something you attract more than you chase and capture — You can ascertain someone’s position but not direction after just one date — You need to date multiple people multiple times to get good at gauging direction — We should stop dating people who choose a direction too inconsistent with our own
We don’t want to wait for what we want or have to work for it — Many of us are “diamonds in the rough” — We need the vision to see people as they can be and not just as they are — The ideal marriage is one in which each partner helps the other to be more together than either could be apart — We need to start seeing each other as we could be and not just as we are now — We can support everyone we date to recognize their true worth — Changes in your circumstances just means exchanging one set of problems for another — Valuing people for who they are makes the friend zone a happy and not a dreaded place to be
