"Why marriage or family members are more important to people than work, I think is because they offer a kind of intimacy, fulfillment and personal complementation that absolutely nothing else can." - Dale Carnegie

Happy in Marriage | Story of my life

Red roses with water pearls - happy in marriage Story of my life

A student (from Dale Carnegie) once related how his wife, who was working with a group of other women on a self-improvement program, asked him to name six things he would like to change about her so that she could be a better life companion in the future .

"Your request surprised me," the man reported.

To be honest, it wouldn't have been difficult for me to list six things I would have liked differently about her - but, goodness gracious, she could have criticized a thousand things about me.

So I didn't say anything and just asked, "Let me think about it, I'll give you the answer tomorrow."

The next day I got up a little earlier, went to the florist and asked him to send my wife six roses.

I put in a card: "I can't think of six things I would like to see differently about you. I love you like you are."

Who was waiting for me at the door when I came home in the evening? That's right: my wife.

She almost had tears in her eyes Eyes. Needless to say how lucky I was that I hadn't criticized her as she wished.

Am next Sunday after church came several questions, who were taking the same course and who by now had told me about my answer, approached me and explained:

"That was the most tactful thing we've ever heard."

This example made me realize the power of recognition.

"You see: there is always more than one way and we have to decide in each individual case which one we want to take: daily, hourly, every minute...."

Vera F. Birkenbihl quoted from the book How to Win Friends by Dale Carnegie

Many established successful ones People have actually shown that while it is constantly a constant struggle between work and family, they will surely always select or be worth many more family members.

Text - Story of my Life

Written in these walls are the stories that I can't explain
I leave my heart open but it stays right here empty for days

She told me in the morning
She don't feel the same about us in her bones
It seems to me that when I die
These words will be written on my stoneAnd I'll be gone, gone tonight
The ground beneath my feet is open wide
The way that I been holdin' on too tight
With nothing in betweenThe story of my life, I take her home
I drive all night to keep her warm and time
Is frozen (the story of, the story of, the story of)
The story of my life, I give her hope
I spend her love until she's broke inside
The story of my life (the story of, the story of) Written on these walls are
The colors that I can't change
Leave my heart open
But it stays right here in its cageI know that in the morning now
I see us in the light upon a hill
Although I am broken, my heart is untamed, stillAnd I'll be gone, gone tonight
The fire beneath my feet is burning bright
The way that I've been holdin' on so tight
With nothing in betweenThe story of my life, I'll take her home
I drive all night to keep her warm and time
Is frozen (the story of, the story of)
The story of my life, I give her hope
I spend her love until she's broke inside
The story of my life (the story of, the story of)And I've been waiting for this time to come around
Goal, baby, running after you is like chasing the clouds The story of my life
I take her home
I drive all night
To keep her warm and time
Is frozen The story of my life, I give her hope (give her hope)
I spend her love until she's broken inside
The story of my life (the story of, the story of)The story of my life
The story of my life (the story of, the story of)
The story of my life
