And today’s reality check is, that summer camp mentality is something we lose as adults. But I’m going to challenge you right now to live life like one big summer camp. No worries about next year or who your teacher is going to be or what class you’ll be in. Just enjoy the moment.

Episode 179: My Day as a Woman

Subscribe & Listen:

Let me tell you a true story. A long time ago, I actually walked around New York City and spent the day imagining I was a woman. I read Cosmo and heard all these women telling me I need to lose my body fat. I imagined all the creepy guys staring at me and objectifying me wherever I went.

Now, today I’m going to challenge my male listeners to do the same. Spend a day and really imagine what it’s like for them. And I guarantee you’ll emerge with a new respect for the fairer sex and what life is like for them on a daily basis.

Listen to my experience as a woman in today’s reality check, subscribe to and share the podcast, and come back tomorrow for a special Labor Day session of some radical self-help that doesn’t suck.

Episode 178: The Secret to Love: Accepting the WORST in Them

Subscribe & Listen:

Love requires acceptance. But it also requires compatibility. If you’re with someone who does something or lives a certain way that you cannot stand… that relationship will not last.

So what I do, and what I encourage you to do starting today, is this: recognize the worst traits in someone, and ask yourself, “Can I live with that?” They chew their nails sometimes, and maybe that’s something you can live with. They’re lazy and refuse to work on themselves and take responsibility, maybe that’s something you CANNOT live with.

That’s what love is. It’s accepting the worst in someone. And that’s what today’s reality check is all about. So listen and subscribe, rate this podcast and share it with your friends, and come back tomorrow for more radical self-help that doesn’t suck.

Episode 177: Is Your Life Story Holding You Back?

Subscribe & Listen:

We all have stories. Every single one of us. And we live out our stories. We think in terms of, “I’m this, the men/women I want to date are that.” Those are our stories, and we’ve been living with them for a long time.

And for a long time, they’ve been holding you back. So on today’s episode, Brett and I are going to give you a little bit of homework, and it’s going to help you do the one thing you never thought you could do: change the story. Write your own story, the story that has everything you’ve ever dreamt of.

Listen to today’s reality check to discover how to write your own story, subscribe to it and rate it, share it with your friends, and come back tomorrow for more radical self-help that doesn’t suck.

Episode 176: Don’t Rob the Pooty!

Subscribe & Listen:

Rod Tidwell said it best in Jerry Maguire: “Don’t rob the pooty!” And that essentially means, guys, don’t manipulate women. Don’t take advantage of their fragile state. Don’t use and abuse them just for sex. Because they’ve got baggage, and when you rob the pooty, you’re just adding to her stories about how all men are this and all men are that.

Love and appreciate the people who come into your life. Learn the lessons you need to learn from them. That’s today’s reality check.

So listen, subscribe to it, rate it and share it, and come on back tomorrow for more radical self-help that doesn’t suck.

Episode 175: Resistance, Persistence

Subscribe & Listen:

Let’s talk relationships. We’ve all been in one that ended badly. You were with someone, they had their faults, you had your own faults, and it didn’t work out.

Then you get in another relationship, and there are still problems. This is what Brett and I call the game of resistance, persistence. See, you’re never going to have that perfect relationship. It’s a game of finding resistance, persisting through it, and repeating the process.

So join us on today’s reality check that’s all about the game of resistance, persistence. Subscribe to the podcast, rate it, share it with your friends, and come back tomorrow for more radical self-help that doesn’t suck.

Episode 174: Why You Need Therapy Right Now

Subscribe & Listen:

Want to know the most unattractive phrase a human being can ever utter? “I don’t need therapy.” Well, I call B.S. on that. It’s so arrogant, and that’s incredibly unattractive to a healthy person.

You DO need therapy. I promise. Because if you’re the kind of person who thinks they don’t, you’re probably a narcissist. And a narcissist surrounds themselves with fake friends who don’t tell them the truth. Your so-called friends won’t tell you what they think of you, but you know who will? A therapist.

So join me and Dr. John again today as we cut through the bullshit lies that so many of you tell yourselves. Listen to today’s episode, subscribe to the podcast and rate it, share it with your friends, and come back tomorrow for more radical self-help that doesn’t suck.

Episode 173: The Reel of Shit

Subscribe & Listen:

Let’s talk about getting to yes or no. We spend so much time speculating, and yet we make almost no decisions. We think “maybe” and “what if,” but we cannot get to yes or no.

Today I’m talking with my friend Dr. John, and he doesn’t think “maybe this person needs surgery.” He makes a decision. Yes or no. And the reason so many of us can’t arrive at yes or no is that we’re stuck with the reel of shit in our heads.

Well, today’s reality check is going to help you escape that reel of shit and make a decision in your life. So listen to it, subscribe to the 10 Minute Daily Reality Check and rate it, and come back tomorrow for more radical self-help that doesn’t suck.

And you know what? You can’t do that if you’re constantly on your iPhone 24/7. Because while you’re busy on your phone, on Instagram and Facebook, your destiny is ringing. The job you want, the money you want, the love of your dreams… it’s all waiting for you.

And that’s today’s reality check. You’ve got a date with destiny, and it’s happening right now. Subscribe to and rate this podcast in your podcatcher of choice, share it, and come back tomorrow for more radical self-help that doesn’t suck.

Conformity is F*CKING OVERRATED, folks! See, we really are all quirky unique beings deep down, but we’re programmed to shut it down when we’re young. Our parents repress our quirky uniqueness. Mine definitely did.

Because that’s the only way you’re ever going to get everything you want out of life. Don’t let anyone make the rules for you. Let the quirky uniqueness shine.

Episode 169: Shut the F*ck Up and Listen

Subscribe & Listen:

Oh my God, am I sick of talkers. People who talk, yet they don’t listen. You see them everywhere. Or, more appropriately, you HEAR them everywhere.

We’re all here to teach each other the lessons we need to learn… and yet, so many of us refuse to just shut up and listen to those lessons. And more than that, simply listening is the key to so much success. It makes you not only a more attractive person, but also wealthier. Simply LISTENING is the key to Oprah’s and Richard Branson’s success (to name just a few).

So today’s message is simply, LISTEN. And listen to this podcast 😉 Download it, subscribe to it and rate it in your podcatcher of choice, and come back tomorrow for more radical self-help that doesn’t suck.
