I was on LA Talk Live (www.latalklive.com) last night with Dr. Richard Karr and a few other special guests and he asked me a question. He asked me if I thought I could change bad relationtionships. I responded by telling him I would rather be more of a prophylactic.
Before you make that face, let me explain. Prophylactic is a term that is usually used in relationship to condoms and birth control products–the prophylactic is meant to prevent situations (STDs, pregnancy, etc) from happening. Medically, it means to administer medications for symptoms that may arise, but haven’t yet.
Let’s go with that.
I would rather stop you from having a bad relationship, than get you out of a bad relationship. Now the short answer is that I can coach you in both. But I am more excited about giving you the tools to avoid such a situation, than coaching you, kicking and screaming and crying, out of a situation that isn’t working for you. For those you who don’t know this, coaching is isn’t cheap, and it is a process. So, if you find yourself in need of help, but perhaps a little fiscally challenged, then this is for you.
So…once again, I have to mention my new book, “The Book of Bye!” And again, I have to tell you that I wrote this book so that you can have yet another tool to help you decide if he or she is the person you should be involved with.
That’s how I prevent you from getting in a bad relationship. That is why I am a prophylactic. I am protecting you from (well, I am attempting to protect you) from bad relationships.
See how easy that is? And, just for the record, this isn’t any ordinary dating advice book. I have taken 12 scenarios from my personal dating and relationship coaching experiences to give you real-world rationale to apply to your present, and perhaps even future, dating adventures. If you follow the instructions in this book, your days of whining about the loser you are dating are OVER!
In fact, your relationship resolution for 2012 should be to STOP whining and START winning…and winning starts with adding this book to your arsenal. Period.
But, some of you will read this and go get the book, and others of you will think that $9.97 is too expensive and you want something free. If you want something free, then sign-up for a sneak peak of the book on the homepage.
Now for those of you who are ready to be empowered and actually do something different, I will see you on December 18th–book in hand–at my Bye Club Book Club event.
The choice is yours…choose wisely.
P.S. The title of this article is Bye! You! (get it?)
