Today we discuss love and why it's essential for success.

Have you ever felt a little inadequate or less than other people? Do you find yourself always saying yes to the demands of others or allowing their opinions to affect your own happiness? When someone starts to feel this way, it's as if they've lost their voice and sight of what they actually stand for.

Putting all of our focus onto what others think, do, and say can leave us feeling empty and forgetting who we are. What we need to do is start loving our own voice, our own message, our own values, and start to put trust back into our own wisdom. We need to start with learning to love ourselves.

My co-host today, Julie Potiker, is a mindfulness expert, author, and attorney who shares mindfulness techniques with the world through her Mindful Methods for Life trainings. She joins me today to discuss the releasing wounds from the past, the vulnerability it takes to be courageous, and the importance of self-love.

Our guest, Dr. Gary Salyer, is an author and transformational relationship counselor who helps men and women re-write the rules for love in their brains. Through his powerful and effective methodology to make it "Safe to Love Again," Dr. Salyer helps even those who may have given up hope to have the love that they dream about.

He joins us today to share how we tend to look for the same kind of love that we've experienced earlier in life, how this can hurt us, and how we can learn to love and be loved fully.

We Discuss:

  • Becoming conscious of the feelings inside ourselves and learning to truly love ourselves
  • Why courage takes vulnerability and the willingness to release our wounds from the past
  • How we find and keep a lasting relationship despite serial relationships and breakups
  • Why we need to learn how to love ourselves in order to be loved fully by others in return
  • How we use the love that we receive from our early relationships as a reference feeling
  • Changing our love style to one that's sustainable and reenergizes the state of our relationships
  • Knowing when it's the pattern and not the partner that's creating an upset in the relationship
