Episode 6: Healthy Relationships


The Challenge

This Challenge is all about removing blame, a discipline associated with the life path to failure, and personal accountability, a discipline associated with the life path to success. This challenge will take the negative discipline and transform it into the positive. This challenge is a toxic energy cleanse, take it and feel a true release. When we are blaming a person or a situation, there is some “thing” we can own and the objective of this challenge is to identify that “thing.”

  1. Do you have someone in your life that you would classify as a toxic person that you cannot just cut out of your life?
  2. Think about this person and their actions, attempt to answer, why does this person and their actions bother you?
  3. If it is a series of specific events that has led to this resulting toxic relationship outcome, explore each event and discover what exactly about that event truly struck a cord with you.
  4. Then take your answers and determine what does this say about you. What can you learn about yourself?
  5. Determine what these experiences say about you and own it.

This episode is all about healthy relationships. Something that I was very determined to get out there, I wanted to do something on healthy. January usually being the fad month when we go back to the gym and start the diets. With healthy relationships, the learning outcome and inspiration for this episode was my largest takeaway from 2015. It occurred in the final days of December and was a renewing way for me to start 2016. Therefore, I felt overwhelmingly compelled to share it.
