Being the wife of a go-getter, a restless minded individual is HARD but also very fulfilling. A lot of people see the highs, the achievements and the rewards of hard work but they never realize how much it actually takes.
A couple of years ago, I was that wife that nagged that my husband worked too much, didn’t spend enough time with the kids and that he wasn’t helping with the running of the household. Yes, that was me a few years ago and I’m ashamed to admit it. But CAN YOU BLAME ME? That’s what was around me my whole life, I didn’t see anything different. Isn’t that what all wives do? Argue with their husbands?
Even though I was running my own business and he was starting out his, I felt I was doing all the work. Yet, he brought in more income than I did. It wasn’t until we shared an office that my outlook in work and marriage changed.
My husband and my brother are big fans of Uncle G (Grant Cardone) and although I agreed with some things he said, I wasn’t a big fan of his at that time. It wasn’t until I heard an episode of “ The G&E show” that it just CLICKED.
What the hell was I doing? My husband is out there getting contracts, providing for our family and I’m here nagging him because he forgot to put away the trash can? Does he really want to argue with me after work?
Listen, we are still a married couple. We still fight but now we have a clear understanding of our roles in our marriage. We don’t sweat the small stuff because in the bigger scheme of things, they don’t matter. I always think about Elena Cardone’s advice, are you creating an empire or destroying it?
Now that we have goals as a family and as a couple, it is easier. I’m not going to lie, it’s a hard conversation to have at first, but once you get into the groove of things it just gets easier. I run the household and he runs the businesses. Don’t get me wrong, if need be, and roles are reversed we go ahead and do it. No nagging necessary.
I guess what I’m trying to say is, ladies support your partner. Have him reach his full potential and I guarantee in the process you will reach yours. Men, if you have a go -getter wife, help her reach her full potential. Building an empire is not normal, it’s not easy but it IS worth it.
