Is changing your behavior as easy as changing your mindset? Today’s guests hold the stance that true behavior change takes more than just a mindset shift (and I agree).

Dr. Phil Stutz and Dr. Barry Michels are absolute legends in the personal development and self-mastery spaces, and have both been in the private practice of psychotherapy for over 30 years.

I sought Drs. Stutz and Michels out to catalogue their tried-and-true techniques for facing fear and challenge, developing clarity around your deepest desires, and cultivating authentic connection in today’s world.

You’ll learn:
  • The KEY tactic to help you stop avoidant behavior, and tackle challenges head on.
  • A surprising path to awareness that allows for deep self-expression.
  • Why discipline and self-restraint are spiritual practices.
  • A framework to cultivate stronger connections and relationships.
  • The MOST IMPORTANT transformative skill to cultivate in your life.
