Why Your Wife And Marriage Is Sexless

I’ve discovered that a LOT of us have real hard time answering a really simple question.

Knowing the answer clearly and concisely can be the difference between a guy wallowing in limbo for years and a guy who quickly and consciously moves forward.

I think I know why it’s so hard to answer…it’s because we’re too busy focusing on another question instead.

What’s the simple question?

Free Guide: Where You Should Focus To Grow Your Masculinity >>

“What do you want?”

I know! It sounds really easy, doesn’t it?

I’m not talking about when you’ve got a menu in your hand and the waitress says, Do you know what you want? Most of us nail that one with ease. (except my girlfriend, but that’s another newsletter)

I’m talking about a guy who is facing some really tough relationship stuff and experiencing an ongoing, disinterested, icy chill from his wife.

When I ask him, Do you know what you want? he answers quickly:

I’m tired of her ignoring me

I’m sick of feeling like her last priority

I’m don’t want to live another 20 yrs. like a roommate

I don’t want this to come crashing down on me and destroy my family!

Did you notice he didn’t answer the question. He listed things he doesn’t want and is focused solely on what he’s not getting.

So, I ask again, Do you know what you want?

And he’ll usually say something like, I want things to go back to the way they were…in the beginning!

The problem with that is no relationship stays the same. That hot and sweaty, lovey dovey beginning had a very short half-life.

When I keep pushing for what do you WANT…words start to trickle out.

A smile every now and then would be nice

Be more open and honest with each other

Feel a spark of desire to be in the same room and breathe the same air

Kindness and a little affection would be cool too

By the time we finish the conversation, he gets clearer and he might say,

What I want is a real relationship where both of us assume the best in each other and try on a daily basis to keep a connection going. I want a relationship based on mutual trust, respect, support and desire to be partners. I want a relationship where we share a common experience of life and also have freedom to explore our own interests and then come back together to share those experiences.

Now we’re talking! That’s something you can actually do something about.

I talk more about this in the video.

YouTube video

“If you don’t know what you want, you end up with a lot you don’t.” ~ Chuck Palahniuk (author of Fight Club)

In this next video, I want you to listen how actress Kristen Bell describes her actor husband and how he handled her tendency to “fight badly”.

This is obviously a guy who knows what he wants and when he’s willing to make a stand. He won’t accept toxic fighting…plain and simple.

Unless you CLEARLY know what you want and you can confidently and unapologetically ask for it, you’ll probably get something else.

She almost brags that he had an immovable expectation. She admits she’s attracted to the fact that he has really high personal standards and massive self-respect. He knows that if he doesn’t make this non-negotiable the marriage will surely fail.

And he doesn’t hesitate one second in saying so and describing clearly what he DOES want. While he got the result he hoped for it’s clear he wasn’t afraid of her reaction or the possible outcome.

I want you to acquire the critical life skill of confidently and unapologetically asking for what you want.

I want you to know with absolute clarity what kind of life and relationship you want. I want you to be courageous in declaring your non-negotiable standards.

And I want you to become the kind of man who knows how to create everything he wants without the fear of wondering who might join him on his ride.

You have a few options on how to learn this stuff.

  • Stop the destructive emotions of anger and resentment which keep you going around in frustrating cycles and start from moving forward with purpose.

What's the difference between the 1-to-1 coaching and group coaching?

Firstly, anyone who is in our 1-to-1 coaching program automatically receives access to the Men's Roundtable membership and group coaching for free for life. The difference between 1-to-1 and group coaching is down to the speed of change that you want to happen. With more personal time and attention from your coach, the 1-to-1 program is adapted to your specific circumstances and will provide the practical advice you need to know what to think, say and do to create what you want your future to be.

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.

So now you've read that...what do you think? Would YOU like to try some of our coaching for free?
