How to have a successful relationship

Everybody (from the onset of life) desires to have successful relationship, this is proven by the fact that a child has the ability to visualise the kind of life he/she wants to live and pursue it from that tender age.

As a child grows, the effects of environment start to take their toll on him/her.

The environment of a child includes:

  1. The family.
  2. The school.
  3. Religion organisation.
  4. The society.
  5. The government (especially policies, and fulfillment or non-fulfillment of promises).
  6. Peer Group.

These elements of the environment can make or mar the futuristic vision of any child, but one can still make good choices at adulthood. The time frame of coming back to one’s senses is just the (only) thing that matters. It will be good for a child to come to his/her senses at 25 years old than at 50 years.

The traits of success is never inbuilt but developed

A child of successful parent needs the help of the parents to be successful, and a child of parents who are not successful may not (so much) depend on his/her parents to be successful – everyone (aside from the inputs of the parents) has a lot to play in whether he or she is successful or not.

Just like every other area of life, one must have a successful relationship to maintain balance in life, but how can anyone be successful in relationship when there is no standard principle to adhere to?

Let us show you how.

Success in relationship affects all facets of life

When you realise that to fail in your (godly) relationship could mean failure in every other area of your life, you will do it right. You will expend all that you have to make sure that your relationship is successful. After all, it is your life (and your privacy for that matter) to which you do not need anyone to help you maintain but yourself alone!

Some of the things you need to do in order to have a successful relationship are to:

  • Be born again before having a relationship, and ensure that your would-be partner is, also, born again.
  • Be positive minded about the success of your relationship.
  • Be open-minded with your partner.
  • Learn to communicate your fear with each other.
  • Learn to communicate your displeasure with each other.
  • Be determined to make the relationship work.
  • Consistently plan and revise your plans, together.
  • For the habit of prayer and studying of the Bible (whether together or individually).
  • Ensure that you both preserve your Christianity.
  • Then, discover, preserve and maintain your God given purposes on earth.

Billy Joe said, “To communicate is to mutually

understand one another, and it is both verbal and nonverbal. People communicate by their actions and tone of voice… the tone of voice can speak louder than the words”.[1]

Our final advice

If you were a man in relationship, let it be your priority to protect and provide for your family, because, “… if any provide not for his own, and especially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel”. 1 Timothy 5:8, KJV.

As for the woman, it must be your priority to love, cherish, and look after your home (children and husband, accordingly). “Who can find a virtuous woman? For her price is far above rubies… She riseth also while it is yet night, and give meat to her household, and portion to her maidens… Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land”. Proverbs 31:10, 15, 23, KJV.

If you needed a successful relationship, then, observe what have been said in this article, from the beginning till the end.
