-- Recognize that your man is never going to be as ambitious, driven or motivated as you are. He simply doesn't have or want the energy level that you do. So you may as well learn to appreciate him for his strengths.
Consider your cup half full-- If you see your husband as lazy, selfish and feeling that the world owes him something, start searching for his good qualities. Turn these negative thoughts around and consider these characteristics as strengths instead of weaknesses. For example, you might say, "He knows how to relax. He enjoys life. He's easy-going. He appreciates the little things in life."
