Are You Worthy of The Love You Say You Want?


“Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results!”
                                                                               –Albert Einstein

I was thinking about what I was going to write about today when all of a sudden I started thinking about a woman I know who has been struggling in her love life for years.                bandicam 2016-05-24 09-03-28-768

When you talk to this women she sounds like she’s got it all together. She comes across as smart, articulate, strong and she’s very attractive.

And when you ask her what she’s looking for in her love life, she says all the right things.

The problem is if you were to observe the way she makes choices and decisions in her love life….it’s all wrong.

She has the same pattern. She meets a guy, there’s is a great attraction and chemistry and for a few weeks or months she is convinced he is “The One.”

And then, invariably a few weeks or months later the relationship ends and she puts on her victim hat.

This scenario has been going on for over two decades.

If you talk to this women you would think she is great and any man would be lucky to have her on his arm.

The problem is deep down, she doesn’t really believe she is worthy of a great man and a great relationship.

You see, when you truly believe you deserve love, you make choices and decisions which show that you are worthy.

You don’t make excuses for guys who do not CONSISTENTLY deliver the love you are looking for.

You do not give your precious heart (and other body parts) to a guy who has not earned the right to hold and cherish them. And you do not make choices and decisions which are not in direct alignment with the love you say you want.

When you truly believe you are worthy of a good man and a great relationship…you don’t settle for anything less!

I do not believe in a God/Universe that arbitrarily decides who will find love and who won’t. I don’t believe in a God/Universe that would put a desire in your heart and not make it possible for you to have it.

That would be a sick and cruel God/Universe

So why Joe do others find love and I continue to struggle”

I believe it’s only due to two things:
1) It’s on its way and you just have to be a lil more patient
2) Deep down you do not believe your worthy of it and as a result you make choices and decisions that work against you in the long run

Now you can give me all of the evidence to support your struggles. You can tell me all about the “boys” and how sh*tty they are and the games they play.

And I won’t disagree with you.

If you’ve been following me and GPS for Love for awhile you know I’ll be the first to tell you that there are a ton of these selfish, immature, emotionally unavailable guys out there.

And I’ll also agree that most of them only want to know you for what is in your pants.

Those are the guys you must stay away from! Those are the guys you cannot even consider having a relationship with, no matter how much you have in common and no matter how great the chemistry appears to be. Because those guys will never be able to give you the love you are looking for.

Want to get a good idea of how worthy you actually believe you are? Want to be able to predict if you are ever going to have the love you say you want?

Take some Mirror Time and do these two things:

#1 Ask yourself “Do I really believe I am worthy of a good man and a great relationship?

#2 Take a good hard look at your love life and the choices and decisions you have been (and are) making.

And see if #1 & #2 match up.

If they do, simply keep doing what you are doing. Put yourself out there and shine your amazing light into the world so that the right MAN can find you.

And if they don’t, realize you’ve got to make some changes. You’ve got to do some things differently, because if you don’t, you’ll keep making the same mistakes and coming up with the same results.

And you deserve better!

After taking your Mirror Time I invite you scroll down to the comments section and share what your Mirror Time has revealed. I also encourage you to let us know how you are going to use today’s blog to help take you one step closer to the relationship you desire..and deserve

Have a Blessed day!

Much Love,

Is It OK For A Guy To Ask A Woman Out Via Text?


I was recently having a session with one of my platinum mentoring clients who was asked out by a guy she has never met or spoken to via a text?

Now before we go into further details I’m just gonna come straight out and say it….I think texting is the devil!

Mobile phone service concept

I think it’s one of the worst things to happen to our society and I think it’s completely eroding the ability of people to communicate in a healthy way….as adults.

In fact, I was recently at a party where several people were sitting around a table and instead of talking to each other and having a good time they all sat there for a few hours looking at their g*ddamn phones with their fingers moving  a mile a minute.

Now don’t get me wrong. If you’re stuck in traffic or you want to tell someone you’re running a lil late texting can be a very useful tool.

Now texting wasn’t around when I met my wife & I am so grateful. Because even though I see that is the “norm” I believe it has made dating so much more difficult than it needs to be.


Because I believe texting makes it easier to hide who they really are. And it makes it easier for people to avoid being rejected.

And as a result it takes much longer for you to get to know someone and see their true colors.

Because let’s face it, there’s a large percentage of single people who have a hard time opening up and communicating and texting makes it much easier to hide their insecurities.

You see when you text you are able to hide behind an electronic gadget. No one has to see your face. It becomes a safe place to hide and protect yourself from completely opening up and being vulnerable.

And it blows my mind that a woman would go out with a guy who has asked her out via a text, event though she has never met him or spoken to him.

I believe that any man who doesn’t ask a woman out in person or at least on the phone is a coward and not a man that a woman should invest in.

And I know it is harsh. But think about it….

If you’re going to spend the rest of your life with a guy you need him to be a MAN, a stand up guy that you can count on to be there to have your back and make you feel safe.

And what does it say about the intestinal fortitude of a guy if he doesn’t deem it important enough to ask you out while actually speaking to you?

Now I may be old school and this may come across as a tough. But the truth is ladies, a guy will keep getting away with this sh*t if you allow him to.

When you are clear on your boundaries and you know what you will and will not tolerate from a guy you show a guy how you want to be treated.

And any guy who doesn’t naturally treat you the way you want to be treated isn’t a guy who is worthy of having you on his arm.

I’m not naive or stupid enough to believe that you are going to change the culture of the mass of guys who use texting as their main way of communicating with you.

I’m simply helping you to see that if you want to create a long lasting, fulfilling relationship with a stand up guy you’ll have a much greater chance of doing so if you find a guy who is MAN enough to actually ask you out while speaking to you on the phone or in person.

So, what do you think? Do you agree? Do you have a problem with a guy who asks you out via text? Or do you disagree? You see nothing wrong with a guy who asks you out via text?

I’d love to hear your thoughts. Scroll down to let me know what you think.

Hope this helps!

5 Steps To Getting Better Results In Your Love Life


When I first started out in creating blogs for GPS for Love it was my intention to be as honest and transparent as possible.


Because in my journey I had discovered that there Wizrd of OZwere a lot of charlatans out there who would tell you something and who would lead you on (often because they wanted to sell you something) and then, after you pulled back the curtain you would find one of three things…

  1. They were lying
  2. They weren’t telling the whole truth
  3. They were deliberately misrepresenting themselves and what they had to offer.

Sounds like some of the single guys out there, doesn’t it?

Well, I’ve actually come up with a phrase for this charlatan-ism. I call it the Wizard of Oz Syndrome.

If you remember in the Wizard of Oz, Dorothy and the other characters were looking to get to the Wizard so that he could give them the things they were missing. But once they got to his palatial estate they realized that the all-mighty and powerful wizard wasn’t who he portrayed himself to be.

And herein lies the problem. You’re looking for answers but you don’t know where to go and who to trust.

And I get it. I so get it. I have been down that road more times than I would like to admit.

So today I want to share something that I now use when I am am struggling.

And I wish I would have had this knowledge when I was single because it would have saved me a ton of time and it would have saved me from making some really BIG mistakes in my love life.

These are the simple tenets I use (and you can too) when I want to create better results in my life.
(Note*** for those of you who think I have all the answers and my life is perfect, it is not. If you don’t believe me you can talk to Natalie and my boys!)

1) Get Crystal Clear on what the Desired Result is (i.e. Set a Clear Intention)

2) Believe the answers, resources and people you need to help you solve your my problems are already out there and that you will find/attract them

3) Keep your eyes and ears open so that you can recognize them when they show up

4) See if the answer, resource or person feels “right” in your heart/gut

5) Take aligned Action towards your Desired Result and see what happens

You will find that if you follow these five steps the process of creating the desired result becomes much easier and much more enjoyable.

Think about it for a second. The reason you are reading this now is because you want some kind of result in your love life. Right?

Maybe you’re single and your result is you want to find love
maybe you’ve been in a relationship for a little while and you’re trying to figure out if he’s “The One”
maybe you’ve been in a relationship/marriage for awhile and you’re unhappy and you want to walk away… but you’re afraid to.

I get it. I really do. And that’s why I am sharing these simple steps with you today. Because I promise you…I PROMISE YOU… that it will be so much easier to get the results your heart desires if you follow these five simple steps.

Don’t believe me? Why not try ’em out for yourself. You might be pleasantly surprised by the results.

But before you do that I want you to look at all five of these steps and see where you may have been going wrong in the past?

Were you not crystal clear in your intention?

Were you listening to too many people, believing everyone who had an opinion, insight, suggestion on how to solve your dating and relationship problems?

Were you not listening to your gut and you were forcing things because you were afraid you wouldn’t find the love you really wanted?


Were you taking the wrong action? Did you keep investing in guys, relationships and “experts” who you believed were legit only to be disappointed when you pulled back the curtain and found out what the truth really was?

How you can turn your past experience into an expensive learning lesson so that you can go out and create the results you really want in your love life?

Scroll down and let me know.

Hope this helps!

Much Love,

Happy Friday!

Normally on Fridays you and the other members of the GPS for Love community receive a video blog which is focused specifically on the struggles you may be what-men-think-248experiencing with men, dating and relationships.

But today I wanted to send you an e-mail which gives you a glimpse behind the curtains of what it takes to make a marriage work.

Each morning Natalie and I have breakfast together before we start our day. With three boys between the ages of seven and twelve the time we have for each other is very limited. So we do our best to make sure we get “Us Time” as much as we can.

It’s also a chance for us to check in with each other so that we can both love and support each other.

Life can sometimes be very challenging and right now there are a lot of things we’re dealing with. And no matter how strong and confident we are in our abilities to handle the stuff that life throws at us the bottom line is that we’re human and we sometimes have our moments.

So this morning as I was sitting talking to Natalie, I could see something was wrong. And as soon as I asked her the magic question…”Are you OK?” the tears started flowing.

And I must admit that the immediate conversation I had in my head wasn’t a good one. Because in those initial first few seconds all I could think about was myself. I had a few things that I wanted to accomplish today and I didn’t have a lot of time to be dealing with her stuff.

Now I’m saying this to let you know that I’m not just another selfish self absorbed “boy” like so many of the guys you may have been involved with in the past.

I’m telling you this because I’m trying to be as honest and transparent as I possibly can.

Yes, for a few brief seconds I was a selfish a**hole and I’m man enough to admit it.

But once I saw the emotional pain my wife was in my “MAN BRAIN” kicked in and told me what to do.

So for the next hour I sat with Natalie and we talked. We worked though the stuff she was dealing with and by the time she was done she felt so much better…and so did I.

And after our conversation I felt so much better about….myself.

Because here is the thing about us “MEN.” What makes us feel really good about ourselves is knowing that we can be there and take care of our women.

That’s one of the biggest things that separates the “MEN” from the “BOYS”.

If I was back in my old selfish “boy” days I would have ranted and raved and said “I don’t have time for this” and I would have walked away to take care of all the those “important” things on my to do list. And in the process of doing that I would have made my wife feel like crap because she couldn’t count on me to be there for her when she needed me.

A real man wants to be there for his women when she needs him because doing so actually makes him feel better about himself and who he is as a MAN.

When I walked away from my conversation with Natalie I felt so good about the decision I made. Not just because she felt better but because I felt better about me!

If you are ever dating a guy and he is showing you that he won’t be there for you when you need him to be I want you to one thing and one thing only….kick his ass to the curb!

Because you deserve better!

You deserve to be with a man who will have your back when you need him to.

There will be lots of times in your relationship where you’ll need to rely on your guy to have your back and if he can’t have it in the beginning of a relationship what makes you think he’ll have it later on?

Hope this helps!

Have a great day!

Much Love,


P.S. Did today’s blog resonate with you? Do you tend to get involved with guys who don’t have your back when you need them? Do you find it hard to open up to your man and do you deny him the opportunity to be there for you?

If so, scroll down and post your comments, questions and feedback. I want to hear your thoughts.

How Much Do Looks Matter?


Looks open up the door to love but the essence of a person, who they are, and how they treat you makes you decide if you should stay with that person”
-Joe Amoia

As you’re reading this I’m with Natalie visiting an orthopedist for her eventual  hip replacement surgery.

She was born with hip dysplasia (her left hip bones were not formed properly) and it’s starting to get to the point where she is too uncomfortable doing normal activities such as sitting or walking for extended periods.looks matter So it’s looking more and more likely that she’s going to have hip replacement surgery.

Oh well, just another speed-bump on the road to life!

And as we are going through the process I wanted to ask you a very simple question…How important are looks to you?

If you were on a blind date and you didn’t feel an initial spark would you immediately write a guy off or would you at least give him some time to win your heart?

Do you tend to go after guys who have a certain type of look and you won’t even consider getting involved with a guy who isn’t your “type”?

The reason I’m asking is because I am constantly hearing from women that they won’t consider going out with a guy because he’s doesn’t look a certain way.

I get it. We all have types. We all have preferences in how we would like our partners/spouses to look. And I’m the first to say that looks do matter.

But the BIG question is…HOW MUCH DO THEY MATTER?

And that is a question that only you can answer.

Your friends and family members may be telling you that looks don’t matter and it’s who the person is on the inside that matters most. But I don’t agree.

Any person who says looks don’t matter is either full of sh*t or Mother Theresa.

How can you have a relationship with someone, play tonsil hockey and do the horizontal mambo on a regular basis if you’re not attracted to his looks on some level?


So what do you think?

Do you tend to put a lot of emphasis on looks?  What role does physical attraction play in when and how you get involved with a guy?

What is the criteria you use to decide if a guy’s looks are a deal breaker for you?

Scroll down to the comments section and share your thoughts because I’d love to hear your thoughts on this topic.

And if you have any specific questions about the importance of looks in picking a partner, make sure to post em as well.

Hope this helps!

Much Love,
