By

More than tragedy: Whitney's passing offers us wisdom we can apply in our lives right away.

4. Own Conflicting Temptations—Get clear about your weaknesses, temptations and tendencies that conflict with experiencing the results you want. Then "own" them by putting the people and strategies in place to help you stay ahead of them so they don't get in your way. Awareness is power. Use it to give you clarity about where you want to go, then use it to assess where any choice/action you're about to make will actually take you so you can make course corrections if necessary.

5. Recycle—Your personal experiences are an untapped university of knowledge and information just waiting to be utilized. Stuff happens. Instead of wasting time wishing it didn't, look at why it did and how you can use what you learn from it to leap forward. You can even recycle your ex into your greatest relationship ever! How To Use Your Breakup To Create The Love You Desire

Awareness is the best shortcut to relationship bliss with you as well as a love interest. Here are 5 more ways you can put you first with love by making time to check in with you about what you want, how you feel about getting it and whether or not your choices support you enjoying it. This will give you the precise information you need to make corrections, identify what you could use help with and prevent your fears or yourself from sabotaging your present and stealing your future. In the spirit of one of Whitney's most popular songs, vow to always love you. Visit me at my website for more straightforward and strategic tips that will have you living a life you'll love. Cheers to your best relationships ever!
