    On Today's Episode:

    Does your partner have ambitious goals but lacks the motivation to act on making them happen? Does it pain you to see your partner holding themselves back from the life they dream about having? On this episode of Relationship Theory, Lisa and Tom Bilyeu sit down to discuss such matters and more as they explore how you can push your partner into a motivated state so they start accomplishing their goals and creating the life they want for themselves. They discuss how to motivate your partner, why rewarding your partner is powerful, why you should be able to have open communication, and why the problem might be that you have different work ethics.

    Reward | Lisa and Tom discuss how you should reward your partner to motivate them. [6:07]
    Talk Through It | Lisa and Tom discuss why you should speak with an open heart. [8:43]
    Partnership | Lisa and Tom discuss how they each approach work differently. [11:49]


    “…always, always, always, whenever you can do it through reward, do it through reward. Because they feel like that wonderful-warm sensation about the person that’s rewarding them.” [1:55]

    “…and then sometimes you just have to trigger people’s emotions — because they don’t hear it until that point. But I’m telling you, if you lead with that, it will damage the relationship.” [3:28]

    On Today's Episode:

    There are some statistics that report 1 in 4 women have experienced severe physical violence by an intimate partner, while other stats report more than 40% of women in emotionally abusive relationships.

    When you think of dating and being in a relationship with a romantic partner, Dr. Ramani reminds us in this episode that safety should be a high priority and concern. Neglecting the importance of safety and disregarding red flags that she and Lisa discuss in this episode can easily lead to patterns and behaviors that are unwanted, unsafe, and painful to escape with time.

    Dr. Ramani Durvasula is a repeat guest and favorite on Women of Impact. She’s a clinical psychologist and expert in narcissistic traits and behaviors.

    This conversation is about breaking the silence and helping women to reclaim the power we’ve lost and handed over to the wrong people in our lives.

    “In those moments of asking them the questions and being transparent you can get the truth out of them.” [7:49]

    “You just have to make a demand of yourself that you are so much better, you are worth so much frikin’ more than being with someone that doesn’t care about your feelings, [...] this is a non-negotiable!” [9:00]

    You can be in a room full of people and feel completely alone. You can also have hundreds of relationships in your life and more friendships than you can count and feel unlovable and unworthy of love.

Serial toxic relationships, blaming everyone and feeling helpless aren’t healthy, and luckily they aren’t permanent feelings or states of existence.

    This episode is for you if you need a reminder that confidence is a journey, and that noticing your triggers can be a major step in the many small steps needed to make changes for a better life filled with self-love.

I love the honesty

I have always needed validation from my boyfriend because of my passed relationships and so when I saw this episode I immediately saved it and I will probably listen to it a couple times! “Why Your Constant Need for Validation Will End Your Relationship| Relationship Theory”. I love it.

SXM gyal! ,

Great help

Listened to this episode today and it was very refreshing. I am working on this 28 days self discovery journey and this episode definitely brought some light into my life. I felt like Cheryl was speaking about me as I go through the same things she has described. Took notes and will hopefully work on finding my truth. Cheryl, thank you for sharing your story 🙏🏾
