Virgin Group Founder, Richard Branson’s Love Advice to us All

by Uche Onegeria 23 Feb , 2016  

This is a post that I wanted to share on Valentine’s day but I forgot. My apologies.
“Sir Richard Charles Nicholas Branson is an English business magnate, investor, and philanthropist. He is best known as the founder of Virgin Group, which comprises more than 400 companies” (Information from Wikipedia). Richard is worth 5.1 billion USD (according to Wikipedia) and is known for astounding advice to the world on entrepreneurship and now he gives us love advice. At 65 years old, and 40 years of marriage, Richard is the man to take relationship advice from.
“The way I see it, love is a steadfast boat that allows you to make safe yet exciting passage across wild seas”, Richard Branson on love.
Here it is:

“Having spent 40 years with Joan by my side I have had the courage to do so many things others would deem impossible. I have been able to take risks – that have been fundamental to my success in business – which I probably wouldn’t have dared to make without Joan’s love.
She has taught me that love shouldn’t just squeeze your heart, it should cradle it. It should prop you up, not bring you down. It should make you strong, not weak. The way I see it, love is a steadfast boat that allows you to make safe yet exciting passage across wild seas.
Love should be supportive; it should lift us and inspire us to be the best possible person we can be. Because if you can be the best version of yourself, your partner will benefit too. That’s the cornerstone of a great relationship – wanting the best for and bringing out the best in each other.
Happy Valentine’s to all the lovers out there – may you experience love that stands the test of time. And if you’re still looking for love, the very best of luck and I’m sure you’ll find it soon.”…………Richard from his website here and here.

Amen to your great wishes, Richard. Thank you.
