    What Is Your Joy-to-Sadness Ratio? (HIA Classic)

    What Is Your Joy-to-Sadness Ratio? (HIA Classic)

    If you looked at your average day, how much of it do you spend in a state of Joy vs Sadness?
    My coach and mentor Day Adeogba shared with me a conversation he had with his kids recently, where he asked them "What do you think your Joy:Sadness ratio is?" That idea of a Joy:Sadness ratio totally fascinated me, and inspired me to think about it for myself....which of course led to this podcast episode!
    Tune in to hear about the Joy:Sadness ratio, how you can determine your goal Joy:Sadness ratio, and what you can do to experience the amount of Joy you desire in life.

    Change Your Life Series: Why Is Change So Frustrating? (HIA Classic)

    Change Your Life Series: Why Is Change So Frustrating? (HIA Classic)

    Why is change so frustrating?
    You'd think it wouldn't be so difficult to change something that you REALLY want to change. I know in the past I've been incredibly hard on myself for "not having the willpower" or "not wanting it enough" or "not being disciplined enough", when I failed to make change happen in my life. 
    But what I told you there were crucial pieces of the change equation that you were missing? Ones that illuminate why change is so hard, and how to actually make it work for you.
    In today's podcast I get into the psychology behind making meaningful changes in your life, and I help you demystify this area that causes frustration in so many people.
    I drew inspiration for this episode from a conversation I heard on The Life Coach School Podcast -- https://thelifecoachschool.com/podcast/1/

    Let's Talk About Sex: Understanding Your Sexual Story (HIA Classic)

    Let's Talk About Sex: Understanding Your Sexual Story (HIA Classic)

    What is your sexual story?
    No, I'm not talking about a romance novel type of story. I'm talking about the narrative you have around sex, the one that was started many years ago with your very first encounters with the ideas, feelings and attitudes around sex.
    We all have a sexual story that was started when we were young and is being added to constantly. Many people's stories around sex are based in shame, judgement, embarrassment and expectation. That leads to sexual experiences and feelings that are unhealthy and certainly don't uplift and heal.
    But it doesn't have to be that way! You can rewrite your sexual story, heal those sexual wounds you carry, and create an entirely new sexual experience for yourself that's based in love, feels authentic, and full of genuine connection.
    Today I'm kicking off a series about sex which will help you transform your views on sex, from the inside out.

    What Does It Really Mean To Be An "Involved Dad"? (HIA Classic)

    What Does It Really Mean To Be An "Involved Dad"? (HIA Classic)

    How would you describe what being an "involved dad" is? And, if you're a father, would you currently consider yourself an "involved dad"?
    This idea came up in a conversation Sarah and I were having on our other podcast, Doing It At Home, and I was clear that discussing fatherhood and what it looks like to show up powerfully as a dad was something to bring to Having It A.L.L..
    Join me as I dive into what it really means to be an "involved dad" and why that label itself carries with it some controversy.

Great podcast

Hi Matthew,

I’ve been listening to your show for some years now and your show is nothing but amazing. You’ve help me in more ways than none in my life. So I wanna thank you!

Matthew is magic! Listen to be inspired.

Matthew has been an influential and constant voice in my life for almost three years now! Listening to his podcast each week is like catching up with an old friend, one that has you asking all the right questions. Matthew’s voice is authentic and raw - sharing his own breakdowns and breakthroughs that leave you feeling both connected and inspired. The content is clear, easily digestible, and action-oriented. This may be the motivational fix you’re looking for on here. Definitely give it a shot! This podcast has meant everything to me and came to me when I needed it most. Thank you, Matthew! 💛

Ep 356

I always fall off and return to this podcast and every time I return you speak to my soul 😅 this episode resonated so deeply because I’ve been struggling to allow myself to be fully expressed for a whileee now. Something click in me a few months ago and I’ve been making changes but the 6 Fs are not being fulfilled in my life . So I’m going to start taking it step by step using the framework and I’m looking forward to the blueprint program ! Not even sure how old this episode is and where you are with the blueprint program but I’m going to stick around and keep an eye out. Love you and your family Matthew ! Sending love and blessings y’all way !
