    When their sexual history bothers you

    When their sexual history bothers you

    Your sexual history is yours, but some people like to make it a big deal and cause you to feel guilt or shame for things you did long ago. Whether you regret what you did in the past shouldn't make a difference because it's your past and no one else's. Other people need to keep their eyes off of your rearview mirror and put their focus on the road right in front of them.

    Every action you take in your life either increases your power or decreases it

    Every action you take in your life either increases your power or decreases it

    If you gave yourself a +1 for every empowered decision you made and a -1 for decisions made that avoided consequences, would you be abundant in personal power or in deficit?

    Every decision you make and every action you take every day either adds to your power or depletes it. It's important to be conscious of this as those 1's can add up quickly! You just want to make sure you're going in the right direction more often than not.

    When the fear of failure stops you from doing anything and everything

    When the fear of failure stops you from doing anything and everything

    It's one thing to be afraid to fall off your bike. It's another to never consider riding one just in case you fall. The fear of failing can be imagined as so traumatic and painful to some that they literally do nothing instead. As you know, doing nothing leaves you in a rut. It is the fastest way to go nowhere. Maybe it's time to learn to redefine failure and learn what success actually feels like.

    Laying down the ground rules for the toxic people in your life

    Laying down the ground rules for the toxic people in your life

    If you want a toxic person to change, it will probably never happen. However, there is something you can do to change the course of the relationship that may actually cause them to act differently. Sometimes you gotta make rules that guide toxic people to healthier behavior.

    Making the shift from repeatedly being upset at someone else and letting it go

    Making the shift from repeatedly being upset at someone else and letting it go

    When you have emotional reactions that you don't want to have toward someone you care about, you probably try to control yourself but fail. Because of that, the pattern repeats itself over and over again until you heal from some past event or shift your perception so much that what used to bother you simply disappears. That shift is possible.

    The risk you take by being your authentic self

    The risk you take by being your authentic self

    Do you form authentic relationships by being the real you, or do you only show people what you believe they want to see? What are the risks of showing up as the real you? It may be worth taking a risk to find that out.

Self forgiveness

Paul, I am so excited to have found TOB. It was I’m sure, divine intervention. I’ve been struggling with depression and shame and your pod cast has helped me already. It fills my meditation snd psychological needs. Love the story about selling your car+ for 200$, I get it, and it was encouraging. Today I listened to episode 39 and found the person I needed to forgive, was myself. What episode do you suggest next. Thanks for doing this podcast. Me@70

It’s my favorite

I love this podcast, it became one of my favorite bedtime routine. Love his approach, humor and his soothing voice. He is very realistic and suggested practical solutions.
The only take that he always brings examples from his personal experience, would love to hear examples from other individuals.
