Here is what’s missing in dating relationships, as well as so many relationships…

Today’s S.O.L. Story leads to what I call, “The Art of The Ask.”

The ability to ask in order to uncover and discover something.

It starts within YOURSELF, so you can also do it with others.

In order to love you (and others), you must know you.

In order to know you (and others), you must ask yourself empowering, discovery-type questions.

When was the last time you did this for yourself?

If you don’t truly know you, it’ll be very difficult to know others.

If you don’t love you, it’s impossible to truly love others.

Dating starts with YOU…within YOU.

It leads to loving you, and others.

The necessity of this type of DATING doesn’t stop when you get into a relationship with another, or when get married.

Dating yourself well is a lifelong love affair that allows YOU to become the great lover of your life…and those in it! 

For this, mastering “The Art Of The Ask” is essential.

What do YOU think about that? I’d love to hear from you…

Please grab your SACRED S.O.L. D.A.T.E. JOURNAL (Daily Action To Engage yourself.)


Ask yourself these 3 questions:

1. Who are you?

2. Why are you so lovable?

3. What can I do for YOU today?
