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-dept 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 and includes the work I’m doing on my own buffers, a step-by-step process for changing your own, and why doing this work matters, and at the same time doesn’t matter at all.

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. We’ll talk about how negativity is sometimes disguised and you’ll get some useful tips for redirecting your brain to positivity.

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 to deal with criticism and failure, and why creating something doesn’t feel like you might have imagined it would feel. Let’s get you making the “music” you were meant to make.

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 things at all? Today I’m going to teach you how to define success as a parent and WHY this is such an important thing to do. I’ll share with you how I define it for myself and give you some tools to help you answer this important question and create the relationship you want with your kids now and forever.

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. When I tell them their beliefs go in the thought line, they think I’m suggesting they should question their testimony or that I’m denying these beliefs in some way. Today I want to explain why our beliefs go in the thought line, and why this is very good news. Why this can provide you ultimate peace and comfort and why understanding this can help create better results in your life.

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. Don’t miss this one if you are married or plan to be any time soon.
