You have gifts to share with the world and my job is to help you get them out there.read more
Ever been in the middle of a fight with a loved one and felt crushed by the realization that you’ve had this exact fight *100* times before? Cue David Byrne. “Same as it ever was. Same as it ever was.”
We’ve all been there. In fact, Josh and I were caught in this loop in a bad way a few years back. These days, it’s a different story. Dust ups rarely last more than a few minutes.Being able to talk to another human being without pissing them off; connecting so that you feel safe with that person and they feel safe with you. That’s the desire of the human heart. @HarvilleHelen Click To Tweet
It’s all thanks to today’s guests and marriage experts, Helen LaKelly Hunt, Ph.D. and Harville Hendrix, Ph.D. They’re the authors of many books, including the timeless bestseller, “Getting the Love You Want”.
Not kidding, what today’s guests taught me has been nothing short of a miracle.
I wouldn’t have the partnership I have today without them. They have a gift for helping couples build the relationship of their dreams by fostering mutual respect and communication. Besides helping individual couples, they also teach families, teams and organizations.
The Relationship Therapy That’s Changing Communities
According to Harville and Helen, the problems you’re facing with coworkers, family, and your partner stem from a cultural problem — one that wreaks havoc on all areas of our lives.
Because negative relationships don’t just damage our own health and productivity, they have a huge long-term impact on society.
- You’re 100% more at risk from cardiac arrest if you’re in a negative relationship.
- People in broken marriages are 60% less productive.
- The breakdown of families is one of the contributing factors to at least nine major social issues — everything from substance addiction to violence and crime.
In today’s MarieTV episode, you’ll hear Harville and Helen talk about how helping marriages in their local community boosted the entire Dallas ecosystem. Plus, you’ll discover a 3-step communication technique called the Imago Dialogue Process. It’s so good, couples around the world swear it works like magic.
If you have any relationship in your life that needs improving — their work is the best I’ve come across.
