Three Men, Three Athletes, and Success in Your Marriage

Do you know any of these three men: David Cutliffe, Patrick Mouratoglou, or Angelo Dundee? What do they have in common with three of the top athletes of the last 60 years in our country? The answer is critical to you accomplishing the greatest desires of your heart.

3 Men

THINK: what is more important than becoming the best possible husband or wife to each other, the greatest parent to your children, and the most love-filled individual to all? Nothing! But how do we get there? To answer that we have to know who the three men are I just mentioned and what their connection is to Peyton Manning, Serena Williams, and Mohammed Ali.

Who are these men? They are all personal trainers! And they have worked for the best of the best in their field.

David Cutliffe, was Peyton Manning’s college offensive coordinator at Tennessee. In a game against the Washington Redskins in 2006, Peyton received a neck injury that began his biggest challenge to his career. It ultimately required four surgeries causing him to miss the entire 2011 season. To get back in the game, he needed someone he knew and trusted to lead his recovery and enable him to play his best once again. “I was in rehab state where I needed a quarterback’s coach,” Peyton Manning said…” and David Cutliffe was that man.

Angelo Dundee was the boxing trainer and cornerman for Muhammad Ali from 1960 – 1981. He was coach, nutritionist, medic, trainer, role model and more for most of Ali’s boxing career. No one would argue about Dundee’s critical role in history’s annals of one of the greatest heavyweights in the sport’s history.

Patrick Mouratoglou is Serena Williams’ personal coach. Ranked as one of the top 10 female tennis players of all time, her career prize money is $66,211,528 with 65 career titles. At age 33, she once again assumed the distinction of becoming the number one ranking in the world.

They Never Stopped Investing

Three of the greatest athletes, yet each one relied on others to sharpen their skills throughout their entire careers, even when in their prime! Whether they failed or succeeded, they sought out help to be their best. They never stopped investing in their game!

What if you did the same? What if you looked at each other as husband and wife and agreed to seek out whatever or whoever you could to make your marriage the best it could possibly be? What would you have to lose?

I am not primarily talking about seeking ways to make a bad marriage good–certainly that!  I am talking to everyone who has a good marriage as well and saying, let’s make it better!

Neither Should You!

I challenge you:


Make 2015 the year when together, you agree to shift your focus away from external pursuits and distractions, and seek out resources to take your marriage and relationship with your kids to a whole new level.

Work with us so that we might together become everything we can be. We need each other. Let’s learn to fight FOR our marriages rather than against each other.

There are books to read and study; older couples to seek out as mentors; marriage counselors and coaches to receive from; conferences to go to.

Zerrin and I have done them all – and we continue to do so — even in our prime! Why? There is ALWAYS more to learn! ALWAYS!! And we want to be our best for each other, for our children, and for our children’s children.

My Challenge to YOU:

If you are ready to do the same, then join with us in the following ways:

1. Attend our Madly In Love Marriage Conference over Valentine’s weekend.
2. Purchase my book, The PLEDGE of a Lifetime.
3. Like us on Facebook so we can stay more connected.

(I know, I know. I am pumping up the stuff we are doing right now–but I believe in it! So why wouldn’t I? I promise I will continue to point you to ALL the best resources I know.)

Don’t wait any longer. Take some kind of action today!
