Why do we call ourselves foolish?
In our society, ninety percent of people view normal as a good thing. Normal people are in the majority. Normal people go to an average school, get average grades, get an average job with average pay, have a ho-hum relationship at home and a raise a few normal kids.
The remaining ten percent—the abnormal, foolish people like us—want to excel. We want to succeed and strive to be better today than we were yesterday. We taren’t satisfied with the status quo because we know we can be better.
We can achieve a better financial position so that we can help others who cannot help themselves.
We can achieve better health so that we can truly experience life.
We can enjoy a healthier intimate relationship and truly become fulfilled and joyful.
We can experience greater engagement in a job, contract, business, volunteer work or something else that genuinely fills our souls, drives our ambition, and contributes to society.
And, what the heck: we want nicer things. There’s no reason to be ashamed of that. What about a home that looks out to the ocean, where the waves can be heard hitting the beach? A fast car? Nice clothes? Meals at gourmet restaurants? Maybe even a private jet, or a yacht? Why the hell not? We work hard; we deserve it.
Normal people call us Foolish because we are different, not because we are dumb, silly, or stupid. We’re just different. And we make every effort to be different.
Of course, we’re both born on April 1, as well. So yeah—we’re The Foolish Couple.
In a nutshell, we work with couples, and some singles, to find true happiness and success. We help them to enhance their relationships so that their synergy improves other areas of their lives, including superior health, a solid career, and a more successful business.
When we first met each other thirty years ago, we were puzzled by how different our parents were. On the one side, are parents that are truly in sync, who love each other and see each other as the most important thing in the world. On the other side, are parents who fight all day long, talk behind each other’s backs, and pick on everything the other does. There is no sign of love and respect between them.
We became obsessed with this phenomenon. Since then, we have focused on answering the following three questions:
After thirty years, we’re still learning new things. As the world changes, the dynamics between a couple also changes. We are putting everything we know into our website. Hope you enjoy.
