10 Minute Daily Reality Check
Join me 7 days a week as I blow the lid off everything you THINK you know about dating, relationships, society, and more.
Every day, we’re swiping. We’re typing. We’re texting each other about the people we’d like to meet, the people we’d like to connect with, instead of… (here’s a novel idea) CONNECTING WITH THEM!
In today’s rant — I mean, podcast — I have my good friend T.J. in the studio, and T.J. and I talk about how the iPhone has hijacked your life. It’s given you the disease I call “blowjob neck,” staring at your little screen every day.
But today’s the day I challenge that reality and challenge you to wake up, smell the roses and connect with one another.
Dating, especially online dating, has become so filled with lies.
You lie about your age or your attitude or your outlook on life. Your pictures that make you look younger, skinnier or different are lies (implicitly).
White lies, sure. Maybe you think they’re harmless. But the person you’re representing with those little white lies, that’s not you. And as long as you keep up with those little white lies, people are going to want to date the representative rather than your true self.
We’re really a touch-starved society. We don’t touch one another at all.
Today my guest is my good friend and one of my coaches, TJ. And today, TJ is going to claim that strippers have a lesson to teach us in this area.
They’re dancing on your lap and are they afraid to touch? No. They’re all over you, and it’s time we get all over each other.
Mind to mouth: that’s how we do this 10 Minute Daily Reality Check, and that’s the name of this episode.
That’s how Donald Trump won the presidency, folks.
That’s how little kids are, that’s the lesson they teach us. Don’t be in your head, don’t be anxious about what you’re going to say.
You’re happy to speak unfiltered when you trash a local restaurant on Yelp. You’re happy to speak mind to mouth when you troll YouTube with your comments.
So today I challenge you to actually live that way. Mind to mouth. Just say it.
Today’s reality is an interesting reality for all of you out there who are dating.
We do this painful dance around the issues instead of just talking and being upfront with each other.
When it comes to sex, men don’t want to bring up the issue of sex because they’re scared, and women don’t want to come off as easy.
We’re constantly speculating, playing the speculation game with each other instead of just asking for and claiming what we want.
So today, I’m going to challenge that reality and challenge you to be vulnerable, be comfortable and ask for what you want. Because you can’t get what you want if you never ask for it.
Online dating has become like shopping on Amazon.com.
Literally, we’ve been dating people like we’re shopping — like we’re looking for a movie on Netflix. We can’t make a decision anymore because we don’t have the reviews.
Dating has become so fearful for so many people because of the paradox of choice.
We don’t commit anymore as a culture, because we always think there’s a better movie, or person, around the corner.
Ten minutes is all we ask for you to listen to change your perspective on current issue from dating, sex, relationships, money, wealth, fitness.
What we are is the easiest, quickest advice to make your day an even better day.
What we’re not is some overdone hour and a half long podcast demanding and asking you of so much time in a busy world. We understand that you’re looking for quick, fast advice. That’s what we are.
Not only are we quick, fast advice. We have some of the greatest guests lined up. Imagine being able to listen to world leaders give you the advice on one subject everyday. And that subject is something that will actually help you in all aspects of your life.
We’re every day but Sunday.
I believe Sunday is a day that we all need to be off technology, and just enjoy the people around us.
