My Wife Said She’s Not Attracted to Me Anymore

This may make all the sense in the world to some of you and to others, it won’t.

We talk to a lot of men who have similar characteristics…

They are intelligent, successful in their careers, good partners, committed parents, loving sons, brothers and friends…

In every area of their lives they have respect, admiration and confidence, except at home in their most important relationship with their wife or partner.

At home things are stuck. He feels tense and unsure, she is shut down and quiet. It’s like the passion has stalled.

It’s not for lack of competence or ability that we can end up frustrated in our relationships, we’re more than willing to learn…

So what is the key to having unshakeable confidence with our wives?

What makes some men able to create those feelings inside their partner that make her relax and open up to invite him in and connect in all the ways that we love being intimate with her?

I talk more about this in the video below:

“The first rule to success, is knowing where to look”

Confidence isn’t something you can just choose to have, it’s a result from taking action.

Taking action will always make change happen, but it’s important to recognise how you’re measuring those actions.

Where you’re focusing your attention when you make decisions and take action will determine whether you are successful and eventually become more confident.

When we’re trying to control how another person responds to us or the circumstance that we find ourselves in, we will always be fighting a losing battle.

The tools to make your partner relax and open up aren’t somewhere to be found in a hidden panel. There’s no combination lock to her heart.

The path to reconnecting with her is actually a path of self discovery.

That’s why I love this boat analogy, although for me I would choose types of motorbike (I suffer from motion sickness on boats).

What type of boat are you?

What does the ride feel like?

How responsive is the engine?

What about the finish inside?

When it’s in full flow, how does it make you feel?

Freedom?

Relaxation?

Adventure?

Excitement?

How does it make you feel alive?

How does this relate to your relationship struggles?

We often talk about it being the man’s role to lead the relationship to a more connected, open, honest and passionate place.

And to do that, first he must get clear on who he is and what he brings to the table – what kind of boat he is. He must understand WHY he offers an amazing ride to those who are willing to sail with him.

To lead your relationship, first you have to learn to lead yourself, to not only imagine, but to KNOW that you’re showing up consistently with all your features turned on and fully functioning.

This takes self awareness – especially an awareness of which parts of you need a service?

Often we are completely unaware of these malfunctioning parts. We think we’re purring along perfectly, loving the feeling of the ride until suddenly we lose power.

This is why it’s so important to have other men in your life who’ve been through the same experiences. Men who can show you how to service yourself and get you back to peak performance and a love for the ride.

You need to know how to love and care for yourself so that you can be strong enough to love and care for someone else.

Leading yourself means learning how to give her something to follow.

Focusing on what your partner is or isn’t doing for you is keeping your engine malfunctioning. All the while that you do, you will never be able to see what you need to be doing…for you.

And if you can’t see what you need to be doing to enable you to show up as the boat you love to be, you will react to everything. You will mirror negative energy. You will find yourself arguing, complaining and nagging over stupid things.

You will end up negotiating, sacrificing and compromising the very values you know can lead to an amazing relationship.

Leading yourself means you’re crystal clear on where you’re going.

It also means knowing when to not follow someone who isn’t capable of going where you’re going.

If you don’t know where you’re going you’re probably following someone else’s lead and you’ll someday wake up and wonder how you got here.

If you want to find that luxurious, calm, confident but also exciting and adventurous man inside you again you need other men who understand what you’re going through to help you see where you’re holding yourself back. Men who will challenge you to make the changes that you need to make and encourage you to keep on improving until you feel better about yourself than you ever have before.

What kind of man is right for your coaching?

We work with men who are willing to take the lead in creating the changes they want in their life and relationships. We only work with men who want to understand their fears, insecurities and shame triggers. We teach you practical ways to deal with the mental and emotional challenges life throws at you and help you reach an unshakeable confidence in yourself (often for the first time in your life).

  • You won’t find negative, hateful language.
  • You won’t find a gender war – we don’t bash women.
  • You won’t find bitching, whining, complaining, and blaming.
  • You won’t find a group of men acting like victims.
  • You won’t find judgment or criticism from others.

We don't waste our time with all those things because we want to take the most efficient and effective path to creating the future you want. So we focus only on the things that are within your control: your thoughts, your words and your actions.

How do I know if I need coaching?

If you are feeling unhappy a lot of the time, if you're lonely, drained, lost, stuck or trapped, then our coaching will help. If you're not sure where your life is headed, if you're not confident in yourself, if you're not sure what you really want in life anymore...our coaching will help.

Whether it’s your job, your intimate relationship, or just wanting to feel more happy and with more purpose, then our coaching will help.

If you are tired of settling for a mediocre life or relationship, tolerating criticism and a lack of fun and intimacy and you're done with placating and playing it safe, then our coaching will help.

We will help you have clarity about what you're REALLY passionate about. We'll get you clear about where you want to be in six months and in six years. We help you figure out what you really want to create vs what other people think you should do.

We help you take action, get unstuck, start moving forward. We help you find what matters instead of just "being busy" in the daily grind. We help you figure out how you're going to get from where you are now to where you want to be.

For many of the guys we work with, they find a peace and a sense of emotional freedom that has them shaking their heads and smiling at how they used to approach life. They feel passionate about life again. They build stronger relationships with the people that matter most to them. They feel satisfied and fulfilled that they have finally found the “right path” forward and life starts to feel fun and inspiring again.
