5 Simple Rules for Extraordinary Relationships

Between everything and everything else there is space. That space is the relationship between those things. When those things are us, relationships are about much more than physical proximity. We’re constantly in motion, both physically and emotionally, and as we connect with another human being in motion, if the synchronization isn’t right, there is conflict. In that way, we’re almost like gears hoping to mesh. If we don’t, our metaphorical teeth get chipped, and it hurts.

After decades of working with couples, teams, and even my own relationships, I’ve boiled the secrets for success down to 5 straightforward rules. They tend to be mostly about communication, as that’s the mortar between the bricks that are us.

Communication is what binds us or pushes us apart, so using these 5 rules assures connection, rather than conflict.

Whether professional or personal, Successful relationships depend on certain attitudes and communication. I’ve boiled it down to the most impactful 5 rules for extraordinary relationships. Join me, and we’ll explore them together. Warning: this may result in happy connections

Managing Pain With Your Brain
"It's Chemistry, Man!"

We may not be able to change what happens to us, but we can change how we deal with it and how it affects us. Re-wiring your brain chemistry is actually a learnable skill that puts you in command of your experience. Sometimes what’s throwing us is temporary, and sometimes chronic, but in the moment all we know is it hurts. We react by trying anything to make it stop, and this often leads to even more problems. We try stuffing and masking physical pain and anxiety with pills and other things, none of which work sustainably, and usually have negative side effects.

You have other options! From Norman Cousins laughing his cancer into remission, to Stephen Hawking adding 50 years to his 5 year death sentence, to Aimee Mullins, a double-amputee from infancy, growing up to be a runway model, motivational speaker, and champion runner, there’s obviously another way to approach pain.

  • Learn new ways to look at and manage the “downside” of things from pain to stress to depression, and learn optimism as a habit.
  • Reduce stress and increase energy.
  • Shift your own brain chemistry from flight or fight to rewards and achievements.

Blending principles of both neuroscience and positive psychology, you can learn how to shift your outlook on life on a daily basis, in a way that reduces pain. Being in command of your positive, energized mind, focused on solutions vs. problems is one of the most powerful skill-sets you can have.

The 3 Strikes of Communication
Wouldn't you prefer a Grand Slam?

We fall into some bad habits in our communication, and they’re actually pretty easy to identify and eliminate. On the speaking side, it’s about verbal accuracy and being explicit, but the majority of our difficulties are on the listening side, and these are so much easier to fix.

We tend to be far more “busy” while listening to someone than we need to be. We’re often thinking of what we’re going to say based on a snippet of what we heard, without fully hearing the entirety of the speaker’s point. This can take us on a tangent away from the point of the conversation, and even start conflict, where none was intended.

Join me for a quick, fun exploration of the 3 habits in the way of our communication excellence, and how you can improve your interpersonal interactions immediately.

Internal Prejudice
It all starts inside


Our internal communication is filled with the clutter of many voices, from our parents, teachers, peers, etc. Within this cacophony of words there are narratives we tend to follow without really thinking about them. Some of these narratives are about others, but a huge amount of what directs us are the ones we listen to about ourselves.

We have numerous ways of processing incoming information, and oddly enough, we seem to favor one over the others. Have you ever noticed that you tend to favor thinking over feeling, or intuition over thinking, or any other hierarchy you can make?

These hierarchies are usually formed by outsiders when we're very young, and don't necessarily coincide with what actually works best for YOU. That's what we want to put in place; what works best for you.

Join me for a quick, fun exploration of this Internal Prejudice obstructing your productivity and happiness, and how you can access and embrace your most powerful resources immediately.
