Stephen L. Robinson is a relationship coach, author, and speaker whose sole aim is to revolutionize relationships for the better by applying principles embedded within the scriptures of the Bible.
In this article, Stephen shares how he was able to overcome the obstacles he faced early on in his brand, where he gains the inspiration to pursue his goals and how he handles the stress that comes with being a relationship’s coach.
Stephen’s inspiration to create his brand stems from the backdrop of two failed relationships. In those relationships, he felt that because he didn’t cheat or lie, he was a good man.
Today he has come to realize that there is so much more to being a good man than just being honest and faithful. Back then, he was not available emotionally for his partner, and would always place work and his own wants above hers.
In summary, he was selfish and this led to the end of both his relationships. One of the women he lost, cheated on him with 13 different men and the other left him for another man. After these losses, he vowed to never let it happen to him again so he began his study of relationships to see what exactly he could have done better.
In the course of this study came the discovery that he wasn’t exactly a good man even though he was faithful and honest in those relationships. At that instant, he received a vision from God to revolutionize relationships for the better, using biblical principles.
As mentioned at the beginning of this, his two failed relationships coupled with a vision from God, helped in the creation of this brand.
Lending A Hand
Stephen explains that people fail in relationships more often than not, either outright failures or systematic failures because relationships that don’t follow God’s way will ultimately lack the ingredients required for success.
This remains a big issue and his brand is aimed at solving this problem by showing people God’s way of approaching relationships. God created relationships and he will remain the best relationship expert there is.
A lot of people have their hearts broken day by day. Instead of approaching relationships the way the world does and getting more and more heartbreaks, he shares that God’s way out is the fix.
It’ll give access to healthier, happier, and lasting relationships. Stephen’s brand, through the wisdom of God, is the cure for broken relationships.
One of the obstacles Stephen has faced and is still facing is trust. Trust is a major challenge. Getting people to trust that he knows what he is talking about with respect to relationships can be hard.
People need to trust him in order to hire him as their coach. At the moment he is single so people often question his experience.
“If you are not in a relationship, how then can you tell or teach me about one?” is a very common question with prospective clients. It seems like a tricky question, but it isn’t.
He explains that If you believe in God, in his power and that certain things are governed by certain principles then you know that principles never change. If principles are constant, and he teaches God’s principle about relationships then you have the recipe for a successful relationship. Although he is not in a relationship, through God’s word, he can help those in relationships.
Warding Off Stress And Burnout
To avoid stress and burnouts, Stephen adheres to a simple principle from the bible and that is the principle of resting. Taking the day off and not doing anything work-related, can really go a long way in helping with the recuperation process. For Stephen, his resting day is Sunday, but he shares that it could be any day for anybody. He truly just relaxes and does things that he loves outside of his business.
Another thing that works is prayer. Both his morning and evening prayer. This is where he takes his time to read his bible and meditate on God’s word and promises to him. It works really well for him and he also has a name for it: He calls it C.A.L.M. This acronym means:
C- Control Belongs to God
A- Ask God for help
L- Leave your worries with God
M- Meditate on good things.
The above-mentioned methods are powerful ways to avoid burnouts and of course, other things such as vacations and exercising are a good way to ease stress too.
In light of this topic, Stephen’s best advice for people in this category would be a total prioritization of God. Putting God first and keeping him at the center is very important.
God should be the premise and foundation of everything one does. God wants the best for us and for us to get his best, we need to partner with him and consult him in all our dealings. The benefits of putting God first include him putting you in positions to always have help and a co-laborer during the execution of your tasks.
He serves as a guide and keeps you on the path to fulfill destiny. Everything mentioned, can and only will happen when you surrender your will in exchange for his.
Grooming Successful Habits
Stephen doesn’t believe he has any special or hidden talents, but he feels his ability to read more than the average person creates a good advantage for him.
“You can learn so much from reading books from people who have gone ahead and done what you’re looking to do. To me, reading remains undefeated. It saves a lot of time and mistakes
To get this far, I’ve read a lot. As a matter of fact, I read one to two books, monthly. It’s not just about reading, studying chapters in detail is very vital. ” – Stephen shares.
