Yeah, I said it.

Have you ever been in love with someone who doesn't share your feelings You live in hope that one day they'll light up your phone with a text that says how much they can't live without you. Or, you fantasize that  they'll leave their partner and run back into your arms. They'll say what a fool they've been and how much they need you by their side.

It's romantic, right?

Nope.

And this kind of "perpetual hope" can be so dangerous for your relationships that I feel I have to say something to anyone out there still waiting for a crush to change their mind.

Before you give your heart to someone who doesn't deserve it today, listen to this episode. It could save years of your life.

“Would you call yourself a people pleaser? Tell us how it shows up in your life…”

And you answered!

Matt, Stephen, Audrey and Jameson sit down to look at your top responses to how you fall into the trap of people pleasing and the problems this causes in our lives.

Do you say “yes” to things you don’t really want to do? Feel like you’re always giving emotional energy with nothing in return? Do you feel you have to avoid being your honest self in order to keep the peace and make everyone around you happy?

If you’ve been here, you’re not alone. Listen to how you can find a balance between showing up for people you love without giving up your own happiness and sense of self.

Have you dated someone you find so amazing and impressive that you almost start to feel not good enough for them?

Maybe it’s their attractiveness or intelligence . . . or perhaps it’s their success, wealth, or status (such as the example in today’s video) that has you feeling lucky whenever they turn their attention to you.

Whatever it might be, the reaction we often have to this feeling is highly toxic for our happiness . . . because we start to shrink our needs.

We become pleasers and find it almost impossible to set any kind of boundaries for fear that this will drive them away and they’ll disappear. After all, if they left, “Would I ever find anyone as amazing as them ever again?”

Sound familiar? Then you’re going to like today’s brand-new episode.

Ever sat ruminating obsessively over something you could have or should have done differently in your relationship?

Something you said, something you did, or something you wish you’d have done more?

It’s a dreadful, sickening feeling. I know because I’ve felt it. It leads to regret, anxiety, self-loathing… not to mention a lack of appetite and insomnia. We turn over every memory, imagining where we could have been with that person had we just behaved differently.

And this feeling isn’t limited to situations that have ended. Sometimes we are still seeing someone but we have this crippling anxiety over having irreversibly damaged the relationship. We feel we’ve created a perception of ourselves in that person’s eyes that we can’t now undo.

If for any of these reasons you are currently torturing yourself, this video will be life-saving for you today. Trust me when I say it is essential watching.

In this classic clip, I break down for you why you don’t need to be wallowing in pain, and why, despite everything that destructive voice inside is saying, you actually have reason to feel good today.

Please also share this with someone you know who may be beating herself up right now. Life’s too short for any of us to suffer needlessly.

I’m with you, friend. You’re loved.

You decided it’s time to break up.

And now you’re single again. But for some reason you don’t feel at peace.

You’re still haunted by that eternal question: Did I make a HUGE mistake?

Even if it was YOU who decided to call off a relationship, at some point you’re always going to get that horrible feeling inside of you that questions your decision to dump someone.

Your friends and family say it’s for the best. But maybe they don’t really know. Plus, there was that one friend who advised you to give things another try with this guy and now you’re even more lost and confused!

In this clip, I’m going to show you an easy way to tell whether you made the right choice, and personally guide you out of this anxiety and indecision with simple but powerful change in mindset, so that you feel confident in your feelings and can let a relationship go in peace.

Believe me, I know myself how easy it is to get stuck in this place for months only to come out of it and wonder why you wasted so much of your precious time worrying.

What do you do if you’re dating a Narcissist?

It’s one thing to recognise the signs: questioning your sanity, feeling devalued, never having your needs account for.

But what about when you FINALLY decide you have to leave?

That can be the hardest part.

A narcissist can make you feel guilty. They can make you feel like you’re being impulsive, unfair, or even outright cruel for abandoning them.

Taking the decision to get your life back can mean unwinding years of entanglement, but it’s the first step to real freedom, a clear mind, and a better life.

In this episode, Matt, Stephen, Audrey and Jameson explain how you can overcome your doubts and get out of a toxic relationship once and for all.

I’ve carefully designed these 7 steps to address the stages you’ll go through—in the exact order they’re likely to arrive. And while we all know this process can take an enormous amount of time to put into action, I hope these steps will serve as a compass that will keep you pointed toward your strength (in spite of any distractions the narcissist may try to throw your way).

I also hope this video provides you with strength, acceptance, peace, and progress as you finally move on with your life and remember what it feels like to be free from the coercive control of the narcissist in your life.

P.S. Even if you’re not in this situation, learning these principles in advance may save you a lot of time and grief down the road. And if you are going through this right now? Please know you’re not alone. I’m right here with you.

There's a huge difference between settling FOR something in life and settling ON something. When we "settle for" something, it's often the result of us lowering our standards. We accommodate bad behavior and accept less than what we truly desire because we don't think we're worthy of it. We think "this might be as good as it's going to get" whether in our love life, family, or career.

But when we "settle on" something, we take control of it. 

At this point, we're deciding that at the very least, this relationship or situation has the potential to meet enough of our criteria for true happiness. 

We choose it and actively commit to making it great. What happens next is that we feel connected to it, and as a result, we enjoy the process of sculpting it (even if it's not perfect at first).

In this clip taken from my latest Virtual Retreat, I explain why I'm a big believer in this concept and how it can change your relationship with life.

And if you want to spend 3 days of immersive coaching with me, then I'd love for you to join me for the final Virtual Retreat of the year happening November 11-13.

Here we'll get to work together to help you decide where in life you're "settling for" less than you truly want and where you want to "settle on" sculpting the best version of yourself, your relationships, your career, and your confidence.

Just head over to MHVirtualRetreat.com to learn more.

When a relationship ends, or someone stops calling after several dates, do you need to know why?

What does it mean to get “closure” in dating?

As humans we put a lot of emphasis on how things end.

We want answers: “Was it the way I dressed? Is it something about my body? Or something I did that turned you off? Was it too desperate?!”

But what answers are we looking for? And how much brutally honest truth do we really want to hear?

Matt, Stephen, Audrey and Jameson try to figure out whether closure is overrated, what explanation we’re owed when someone leaves, and how we can move on from rejection when it happens.

Dating is tough. The person we’re meeting up with may have been on multiple other dates this month. How can we stand out when there seems to be so much competition?

The #1 way to separate ourselves is through great conversation. And yet most of us spend all of our time trying to look hot without ever thinking about what we’re going to say when we get there.

I’m sure you already have the “looking great” part taken care of. But in today’s video, I cover the “what to say” part—specifically, how to stand out by asking one of 8 tried-and-tested questions I’ve put together for you.

We all long for financial independence, relationship bliss, greater familial connection, and a generally peaceful life with fewer hardships.

But as it happens, life doesn’t care about the straight-line trajectory we've planned for ourselves.

But life is cyclical and doesn’t trend in just one direction. This is why it is imperative for us to take our focus off of where we feel we “ought to be” and make peace with life as it is today.

It is our job to cherish and learn from the wisdom gained from our past experiences instead of wishing things had gone a different way.

None of this is easy, but it is possible. In this video I explain how.
