Most of us think that negative emotion is something to be avoided and that if we are living our lives in the “right way,” our uncomfortable experiences will be limited.

But in order to accomplish the atonement, Jesus Christ had to experience all the negative emotions of the human experience. To do that, he had to be good at feeling bad and have the capacity to feel immeasurable amounts of pain and negative emotion, which makes the ...

If you have been seeking self-improvement for any length of time, you might have noticed that as much as you change and try to be better, your brain still has negative thoughts about you.
Most of us want to know how to get this to stop. We’d like to reprogram our brains once and for all to think positive thoughts about us.

But this is impossible. Your negative thoughts are just your brain is doing its job. The problem is not that t...

It seems like we have an unusual amount of uncertainty in our lives right now. And our brains hate this. Not being able to accurately predict what is going to happen makes the brain feel threatened and unsure. And so the brain offers us thoughts that increase our anxiety to help us be more alert and aware of possible danger.

But the reality is that, as humans, we have never had any certainty and we will never have certainty. Ever. ...

One of the default thoughts our brain gives us is that God is disappointed in us and the way we are living our life.  It likes to point out that he has taught us better, that he expects more, and that we keep falling short.  But, not only is this thought untrue, it is also keeping us more disconnected from God.  

The truth is that God cannot be disappointed in us and we are always learning and growing in the exact ways we need to. ...

We all have something (or maybe more than one thing) that we really want to do in the world, but we’re too scared to do it. I want you to go and do the thing, the thing that is always in the back of your mind, the thing that you dream about, the thing that is always back there quietly nudging you, asking to be done, asking to be made real, asking to turn from an idea into a reality—and just waiting for you to have the courage to do...

As humans we have an instinctive need to fit in and be liked. But when we don’t question this instinct, we can end up spending lots of time worrying about what other people think and people pleasing just so other people will like us.

In this episode I’m talking about what other people think of us, why they like us, why they don’t, and how to think about what other people think in a way that will serve you and help you get the most ...

In many ways, the challenges and disruptions created by the pandemic have made being a mother even harder, when most of us already felt stretched and inadequate and unqualified in the job.

Our brains are really good at exaggerating our faults and our challenges and simultaneously underestimating our capacity and our accomplishments. They tell us that we’re failing our kids, that we’re never enough, that we can’t meet all their need...

Because earth life contains a surprising amount of negative emotion (50%!), one of the best skills we can obtain is to get good at feeling bad.  In fact, the better we get at feeling bad, the more we can enjoy our entire life experience.  

Feeling bad doesn’t come naturally.  Most of us try to avoid negative emotion as much as possible, but this is limiting how much we are able to enjoy ALL of our life, and it is also limiting the ...

As humans and especially as Christians, it’s easy to believe that we’re supposed to be happy—at least, most of the time. And when life is hard and includes suffering, this belief that we should be happy makes us think that something has gone wrong and we use this as evidence that either God isn’t there or he doesn’t care about us.

But we’re wrong about this. Life was always meant to include equal parts happiness and sadness. It was...

Our identity is not fixed.  It is solely created by the collection of thoughts we have about ourselves.  We define ourselves by the things we already believe about ourselves.  We are what we think we are.

That means that when we want to become another version of us, the only thing preventing that is the thoughts we currently believe about ourselves.  The fastest way to become who you want to be is to decide to think different thoug...

In this episode I share lots of the things my brain was wrong about in the hopes that you can look at yo...

Your relationships exist in your mind and that means that the way you think determines the quality of any relationship. In this episode, I’ll show you what I have learned about ou...

We all have confirmation bias that is created because our brain is programmed to gather evidence that our beliefs are correct. But this built-in bias often keeps us from seeing another point of view without getting defensive.

In this episode we talk about how to surrender our defensiveness and use this emotion as a signal to examine our own thoughts. Defensiveness is an invitation to look at what we really think, to find the places...

Many people come to self-improvement from a place of self-rejection and disgust.  We want to change and grow so that we can change and outgrow the person we are.  And we set off to improve ourselves or our lives from a place of guilt and shame.  And this is a losing proposition.  

Before we can close the gap between deciding to change and implementing change, we first need to examine, unravel, and remove guilt and shame, because th...
