The 10 Components of a Satisfying, Loving Relationship – Part 1


focus on others whats right for you tony robbins

There are probably hundreds of components that make up a great relationship, but I’m going to address some of the ones that make the biggest difference.

Whether a friendship, family, or intimate partner, when you adopt and include these components in your relationships, they will improve. But, just like I mention in the show, things go a lot better when the other people in your relationships also include them too.

When it’s one sided, it doesn’t go too far. But when it works, it can be completely satisfying and enjoyable. [Read more…]

belief subconscious accomplishment successWhen you were a child, whatever fear came up, you figured out a way to survive the moment. These survival skills were very handy in adolescence simply because they worked to keep us alive!

Sure, we probably weren’t going to die, but it felt like it! Then, years later we became adults (well, some of us did 😉 ), and soon we were put into situations that caused similar fears and once again, that old survival mentality kicked back in.

Our brains went, “Oh yeah, I know how to get through this! I learned it as a child, this is an easy one. I’ll just… (fill in the blank).” We took the belief system we developed as children into our adult world and suddenly we feel stress and pain and hurt, and all kinds of things we didn’t expect.

That’s because we stuck to the old system of beliefs we created as children. And these beliefs are deep, so it’s no wonder we rarely question what we believe. But, isn’t it time to do just that? Especially if the results you are getting in life simply aren’t what you expected them to be?

Sounds like a trip to the subconscious mind is in store today! [Read more…]

What’s Missing In My Life?


whats missing in my life sad unhappy unsatisfied

What’s missing in your life? I honestly don’t know, but I bet you do. In fact, I’m pretty sure that you’ve been asking the wrong question all this time. “What’s missing?” isn’t the question you should be asking.

The real question is What’s present in your life that’s preventing you from getting what’s missing in your life?

Odd wording, right? But that’s just it: The way we phrase our questions dictates how we think about everything. And if you can change the way you think, you can change your results.

When you don’t know what’s missing, then you don’t know what to focus on to get it anyway, so maybe it’s time to change the questions you ask yourself.

What’s missing? No… What’s in your life that, if it were missing, would help you get what you need to fulfill your life?

Language changes your thought process. The question is weird, but in order to understand it, you need to reach a little deeper than you normally would.

You know what happens when you do that? You access your innermost resources that will help you come up with a solution.

Great episode on using language in a different way to change how you think.

What It’s Like Growing Up In a Box Built by James Bond

James Emry*This is a guest post by James Emry, author of the book, “Positive-ly Uncertain

[Paul’s Note: This is a great article for the male listeners and readers of The Overwhelmed Brain. Though, it’s a worthwhile read for everyone!]

Imagine hearing over the phone that someone near and dear to you had just passed away. A family member you cherished deeply and one of the most loving people you had ever known. Understandably, you would be sad. You would be in mourning. You would cry.

I cried. [Read more…]
