I also discuss some of the emotional eating habits I’ve observed in myself as I’ve done this work and how I’ve come to love and accept my body exactly as it is.

On this episode of the podcast, I’m walking through why every relationship we have exists entirely in our own mind. This is great news: it means that we are 100% in control of our relationships with other people. And that means we can choose to have compassion, curiosity, and love for other people, rather than worrying about whether or not they really like or approve of us.

On last week’s episode Brooke Castillo and I discussed religion and the response has been so overwhelming about how much you loved it. This week I share some additional thoughts based on 5 years of coaching members of The Church about how we sometimes, unconsciously use the very beliefs that can make our lives better, to hurt us. Tune in and gain some awareness to help prevent falling into these traps.
Today I am sharing with you a conversation I recently had with Brooke Castillo about religion. We discuss the difference between your relationship with God and your relationship with your religion, where God fits in the model and why our experience of God is so much stronger when we’re suffering. Thanks to Brooke for her willingness to come on the show. I know you’ll enjoy this episode.
Part of our ability to interact with one another in an appropriate way means we censor ourselves. This is healthy and I wouldn’t want you to drop it. But sometimes we have an opportunity to be more honest with one another about what we think or feel. I wonder what would happen if we all started saying what we mean a little more and believing other people a little more as well. Tune in as I share some ideas about how this can deepen your connections with one another.
If you’ve listened to this podcast for long you know that I teach that your circumstance doesn’t need to change for you to get the result you want in your life. I also teach that focusing on the circumstance is not the most effective way, but today, I want to talk to you about the irony of how circumstances sometimes do change once we do the work of not needing them to. Tune in to learn more and for tons of real life examples.
One of the questions I get a lot is, “What is the difference between traditional therapy or counseling and coaching?” Today Natalie and I are tackling that question. We’ll tell you what we love about therapy and why we think coaching is a better fit in many situations. Tune in as we discuss the challenges of marriage, how a coach helps you through it, and why we believe not all marriages should last forever.
Today I’m answering questions sent in by you, my listeners. I’ll be answering the following questions:
* How do I teach this to my kids?
* What do I do if people think I’m the difficult one in the family?
* How do you learn to hold yourself accountable and follow through?
Is there such a thing as right and wrong? Yes. And no. Today I’m talking about this concept with regards to decisions you make to help you be more confident and timely in your decision making. Indecision is a dream killer. Don’t fall for that. We’ll also talk about right and wrong with regards to your past, and to the decisions people in your life may be making that your brain keeps telling you they shouldn’t be.
Today I have a fantastic treat for you. Natalie and I sat down with our daughters (ages 9, 10 and 11) to talk about emotions, thoughts, friends, advice for parents and what’s so great about being a kid today. You’ll hear about the tools Natalie and I teach which our girls understand, and the parts […]
Sometimes we have thoughts that we know are negative. We may not be able to change them but it’s easy to identify them as problem thoughts. Then, other times, we have thoughts that sound useful. They feel necessary. They sound pretty or righteous or feel very justified and reasonable. Maybe other people offer them to […]
After achieving some mind-blowing goals in 2018 I decided to take a look at the 4-step process that got me there so I can utilize it again in 2019. Today I’m sharing that process with you to keep in mind as you set your goals. My most favorite part of achieving a goal is the […]
Today’s episode is the third and final segment of Better Than Happy Live. If you’ve been listening to this series you’ve heard just a tiny bit of what I cover at this full day workshop style event, but I hope it gives you a deeper look into how applying these tools in your life literally […]
Today I’m bringing you a second segment from Better Than Happy Live. Listen in as I coach real people with real issues and we apply the tools you’ve heard here on the podcast. Before the live segment I’m sharing with you some perspective on the perfect Christmas.
This is Part 1 of a series of segments from the live podcast event I did last fall. We spent a full day together diving into this work deeper, coaching to gain real life perspective, and getting to know one another. It was amazing.
December is the time of year when everyone starts talking about being so busy. The rush of the holiday, the endless to-do list and the expectations everyone seems to have can give you the opportunity to fall for this trick your brain plays. But busyness is not about what’s going on outside of you.
Today I’m sharing something I’ve discovered about myself in my own self coaching and as I’ve stopped snacking. Transitions are uncomfortable. I’m sharing my own personal story of struggling with major transitions in my past, but I’m also sharing what I have discovered that has been so mind blowing for me...
The tools you’re learning are changing things for you, so naturally you want to share it with others. I hear from listeners and my clients that they are trying to explain it and sometimes the people in their lives aren’t open to it.
Gossip is something that most of us agree we don’t want to participate in, but there is something about it that is exciting and compelling to our brains. Today we’re taking a look at why it’s so tempting, what the negative effect of it is in our lives, and I’m giving you a three-step process...
On your wedding day, as you leave the temple hand in hand, nobody expects that one person will stop believing in the gospel and choose to leave the church one day, but sometimes it happens. Like most other parts of marriage, this requires some effort to navigate...
We live in a world full of options and everyone wants our time and attention. While having so many options is an amazing part of an advanced world, it also leads to decision fatigue for many. Today I’m going to talk to you about editing your life and making decisions ahead of time.
Ever notice how painful it is to be wrong? Today we’re exploring why the brain has such an aversion to it, and some of the un-necessary problems we create for ourselves as a result. Of course we’ll address how to re-direct your brain and the benefits of doing so as you pursue your goals.
Today I want to give you an in-depth lesson in the concept of buffering. Buffers can include everything from drugs, alcohol and pornography to overeating, shopping or video games. You’ll know it’s a buffer if it has a net negative effect in your life. This episode is one of my most powerful.
Our brains are very good at negativity. It’s a natural survival mechanism. But today I want to talk to you about judgement, fear, worry and self-loathing. These are the most common forms of negativity and in many ways they create un-necessary problems and suffering for us.
Lately I’ve been doing a lot of reading up on accessing your own creativity and today I want to share some of my biggest take aways. I’m sharing teachings from Stephen Pressfield, Austin Kleon and Elizabeth Gilbert. Tune in as I teach you why you don’t need to be original.
How do you know if you’re a good mom or a good dad? Is it if your kids are happy? They are obedient and get good grades? Is it based on how they turn out? Is it based on whether or not the like the way you raised them? Or is it none of those?
When we share our testimonies at church we often say, “I know this church is true.” We find great peace in knowing it’s true. So when I teach people the CTFAR model they often want to put their religious beliefs in the circumstance line.
The idea that we should get married, then try to meet one another’s needs sounds like a nice one in theory, but in reality, it causes more problems and puts distance and resentment in homes and families. Today I’m breaking down the concept of meeting your own needs. I want to clarify what this means and why I believe this is what Heavenly Father wants for us. We’ll touch on the Family Proclamation and I’ll explain why this helps couples be closer and stronger than ever.
The clutter. The chaos. It’s everywhere. You agree that having it organized would be life-changing and magical but it’s so overwhelming. Allow me to introduce Shira Gill.
