Do you ever feel stuck in a relationship rut? You try to make things better, but progress seems fleeting, and you find yourself back in the same unsatisfying place. You're not alone. Many men experience this frustrating cycle, often feeling helpless and unsure how to break free.


What if you shifted the focus from "struggling" to "seeking growth." These men aren't just stuck; they're yearning for deeper connection and fulfillment in their relationships and life. They recognize the need for change, even if it's uncomfortable.


They might appear when things are at their lowest, seeking support and understanding. But often, the initial motivation fades, and they disappear for months before resurfacing with the same pain and unresolved issues 6 months later 


Here are some common traits these men share:


Unresolved relationship concerns: Past conflicts, relationship issues, and unmet needs linger, preventing the relationship from flourishing. Often in a sexless or low sex marriage it lacks almost all forms of intimacy.


Stagnation instead of growth: They exist in a comfortable routine, neglecting personal development and failing to invest in their own and the relationship's potential. They are not truly living an amazing life they are just existing.


Passivity towards change: They wait for external factors to fix their situation instead of taking proactive steps towards progress. An external locus of control will always keep you in the role of a victim.


Self-neglect: Their own needs and desires get pushed aside, leading to frustration and resentment. 


A mentor once wisely told me, "nothing changes until you do," and it is a universal law of growth. Our Mentoring Men courses cater to men who recognize this truth and want to unlock their potential to create a fulfilling life with healthy relationships.


But it's not just about men taking responsibility. Building fulfilling relationships requires open communication and effort from both partners. By understanding each other's needs and working together, couples can create a space for mutual growth and happiness. But you understand that as the man who is supposed to be leading the relationship, you must go first.


Here are some empowering questions to ask yourself:


• Do I actively communicate my needs and concerns in the relationship?


• Am I willing to listen openly and empathize with my partner's perspective?


• Do I invest in personal growth activities that can benefit myself and my relationship?


• Do I prioritize my own well-being alongside the needs of my partner?


• Do I always put everyone's needs above my own?
