The most powerful secret technique to maintain a perfect relationship.

I’ve read 100’s of books and studied the works of many masters on subjects of goal
achievement and self improvement.
One little known and yet super powerful technique really got my attention. That one was
about happiness in personal relationships.
It was about resolving conflicts, getting your power and happiness back and improving
connections. Anyone can do this  and the other person doesn’t need to know you are practicing this secret
technique regarding him or her. Do not try this whilst driving or operating machinery as it does require exclusive focus of attention. Here’s how it works:

This technique consists of a thinking part and of a feeling part.
Make a list of positive aspects about the other person (in writing if you can, or mentally
if you driving or on a meeting).
No matter how you feel about that person or what is going on in your relationship –
make a list of everything positive you know about that person.
The best way is make a list of 12 positive aspects. Now slowly read each of these
aspects. Try to feel each of them. Feel joy and appreciation thinking about each of this
positive aspect about the other person.
Repeat it 3 times during the day. Give it a few days and expect positive surprise in your relationship.
