Why a love challenge?

Schools teach math, history, and science, but provide little instruction on how to do relationships well. As a result, far too many couples are stuck in a bland limbo. Many, white-knuckle it, remaining together by sheer grit alone. Others fall asleep, back to back, each night, wondering, When will the pain end? Fortunately, couples don't need to fall victim to these dreary relationship statics.

Couples can bridge the gap between where they are and where they want to be. And if your relationship is already amazing, then this course can help you take your love to the next level.

In this relationship course you will:

  • Lean one key relationship connection principle each day for ten days.

  • Practice putting this core connection principle into practice with the daily love challenge (Ten printable PDF worksheets are included).

  • By taking daily action, couples will grow their love and develop new relationship habits.

  • Couples will learn how to apply "the domino-effect" or the power of tiny habits to their bond so they can experience exponential growth.

Because attitudes are contagious, it only takes one person to change a relationship. Whether you are looking to strengthen your marriage or dive deeper into your dating bond, these relationship-building activities are sure to help you grow!

So what are you waiting for? Enroll now. Then connect with your loved one more closely, more deeply, and more joyfully than ever before.

Welcome to The Love Challenge! Schools teach math, history, and science, but provide little instruction on how to do relationships well. If you intentionally connected with your loved one, every day, for the next seven days, just imagine how much your relationship would grow.

In this video, students will discover:

  1. Why having an average relationship is not good enough.

  2. Three powerful benefits to having a warm, caring connection to your loved one.

  3. A common theme of happy couples that you can immediately apply to your own relationship

  4. A proven path for exponential relationship growth.

Sadly, when it comes to relationships, the odds are not in our favor. Out of the unions that last, far too many couples are stuck in a bland limbo. They exist somewhere between saying, “I do” on their wedding day and finding happily ever after. Others white-knuckle it, remaining together by sheer grit alone. These couples fall asleep, back to back, each night, wondering, When will the pain end?

As we will see, a caring connection is more than a nicety; it’s a necessity—one the human brain puts on par with oxygen. This course will guide you in infusing the life-giving oxygen of connection into your relationship. So, get ready to gain new insights. But even more importantly, prepare to act. Although average couples live in quiet desperation, you and your loved one can break out of the ordinary and be joyfully connected.
