Episode 19: Understanding and Managing Relationship Problems

Dave ElliottAll couples have problems. No relationship is perfect. Some issues can be resolved while others are destructive, unhealthy, unacceptable and therefore you must learn to walk away.

Have you ever wondered why some people keep falling for the same type of person? Why do they subject themselves to the same pain and get burnt over and over again? Yet, they can’t seem to break away from these toxic characters. Cheaters, liars, narcissists…

Does this sound familiar?

In this episode relationship expert Dave Elliott explains why we do what we do and how we can change our destructive thoughts and behaviour patterns in order to attract the right people into our lives.

Episode 17: Defying the Odds

Eric Bailey“When you can put other people’s aspirations and goals a little bit higher on the priority list, then you allow yourself to give more of yourself. And when you can give more of yourself, it’s just a good feeling,” Eric Bailey

Eric was born with a bone disease in his knees. The doctors told him that he would never be able to play sports and would never be normal like other kids. His biological parents didn’t want to take on the responsibility to raise him so they gave him up for adoption. Yet, he defied the odds and became an elite basketball player and NBL legend.

Eric grew up in poverty, in a rough neighbourhood in South Central Los Angeles. His young life was surrounded by crime, drugs and struggle. Today he is a successful entrepreneur, a renown inspirational speaker and world class coach. He was voted as the Top 22 Motivational Speaker in the world.

Episode 15: How to Deal with Anger, Blame, Shame and Guilt

Shanti Zimmermann“Holding onto anger is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die.”Buddha

Everybody has to deal with anger, shame, blame and guilt from time to time. And it’s perfectly normal but when you allow anger and guilt to consume you then you must learn how to deal with them because these toxic emotions will eat away and destroy your self worth. If left unchecked they will rob you of your peace and happiness.

She was raped and bullied but she refused to view herself as a victim. She is determined not to let her past rule her future. In this interview Shanti explains how you too can let go of these emotions and make peace with your past.

Shanti’s intimate workshop will be available in September. Please follow this link for more info.

Episode 12: What is Your Excuse?

Raffi Shirinian“Life is going to be hard but you can get through it. It’s going to be hard not all the time but once in a while. But you know what, at the end of the day life is you, your own person. And don’t be so down about it. Just keep your spirit up.”

This is the message my friend Raffi Shirinian has for us today.

He was born with a serious birth defect called spina bifida which leaves him wheel chair bound, disabled and having speech and learning difficulties. And yet he refuses to allow his circumstance to define him. He’s one of the most active, upbeat and positive being I have ever known. Whenever I’m feeling down I turn to him for inspiration.

I asked Raffi what was the greatest challenge he was facing. To my surprise, given his circumstances, he said winter. Why winter? Listen to our conversation to find out :)

As always I welcome your feedback. Please post your comments online or drop me a line at [email protected]. I’d love to hear your thoughts.
