Thank You, Zig!

Thank you, Zig Ziglar for these words that are the basis for one of the most significant mindsets that we emphasize in our Marriage Roadshows.  This helped us get the focus where it need to be. This was his response when someone asked him if he thought they might have married the wrong person:

“I have no way of knowing whether or not you married the wrong person, but I do know that many people have a lot of wrong ideas about marriage and what it takes to make that marriage happy and successful.  I’ll be the first to admit that it’s possible that you did marry the wrong person.  However, if you treat the wrong person like the right person, you could well end up having married the right person after all.  On the other hand, if you marry the right person, and treat that person wrong, you certainly will have ended up marrying the wrong person.  I also know that it is far more important to be the right person than it is to marry the right person.  In short, whether you married the right or wrong person is primarily up to you.”
