Guiding Principles of Perfect Relationships

by Thomas J. Leonard

©2001 by Duplication/distribution by licensed users only. Visit

1. Assume every reaction you have is 100% about you.

Even when the other person is clearly causing it.

2. Replace expectations with understandings.

Expectations are unmet needs asking for attention.

3. Ask for what you need, months before you need it.

Give everyone a chance to win with you.

4. Spend time only with people who demonstrate love and respect for you.

Key word is demonstrate. Talk is cheap.

5. Notice how people treat you, not just how special they are.

Donít get seduced by peopleís qualities or gifts.

6. Love people because you want to, not because you need them.

Love is a byproduct of caring, not need.

7. Replace giving and helping with generosity.

Stop giving. Instead, let people partake of what you have available. Be a spring.

8. Identify how people are doing their best, even when they arenít.

You, too, are doing your best, especially when you are not.

9. Be forthright and forthcoming, even if there are potential consequences.

Holding stuff back disconnects you from others, even if you donít think it will.

10. Hear what isnít being said and respond to that.

People donít always have the courage to fully communicate. But you can.

11. Let people be themselves, but not at your expense.

Personal boundaries protect your spirit.

12. Replace traditional roles with collaboration.

Roles are a tired vestige of power. Collaboration expands both parties.
