Friends First

This program will deepen your relationship with yourself and others. By removing the barriers that hold you back, you will be able to fully experience genuine, fun and meaningful connections. It will equip you with powerful tools to experience more positive and fulfilling relationships in every area of your life!

Research shows that your physical health and mental well-being are both vastly improved with healthy relationships. In addition, optimized immune system function, expedited disease recovery, decreased anxiety and depression, and longer life span are all positive effects resulting from cultivating healthy relationships.

In this program, you will learn new ways to cultivate and grow any relationship and enjoy a greater level of emotional, physical, and social well-being.

What You Will Learn:

  • How to build healthy habits that cultivate self-love and acceptance
  • How to break unhealthy habits and toxic, self-sabotaging relationship patterns
  • How to create and sustain authentic, intimate connections with others
  • Techniques to flex your communication style that will help you listen, understand, and support anyone in your life
  • New ways to deepen your connections by establishing your personal standard and boundaries
  • Powerful habits and behaviors that will help you expand and express your gratitude for life
  • New ways to boost your confidence and unlock your full potential to influence yourself and the people you love

Grow and cultivate healthy, thriving relationships by entering your private program, journeying through personal self-discovery to develop your next-level identity in each of your relationships. With a relationship identity that's rooted in gratitude and love instead of fear or conflict, you eliminate old limiting beliefs about yourself, friends, family, and loved ones that are preventing you from experiencing meaningful, fulfilling connections.

The three most common reasons people struggle with relationships:

  • Lack of Appreciation - We have expectations for how a person should behave, or how we would like for them to change, rather than appreciating who they already are and supporting them in their own journey.
  • Not Taking Responsibility - Every communication can be perceived as either a loving response or a cry for help. When we don't take full responsibility for the ways in which we respond, we allow ourselves to feel attacked and hurt, causing us to irresponsibly lash out or cast unnecessary blame.
  • Holding onto the Past - Painful or fearful past experiences can hinder our ability or willingness to forgive and move forward. Holding onto unconscious, unhealthy emotional anchors formed by past relationship traumas continues to impact the ways we behave and respond in our current relationships. Ultimately, this prevents us from experiencing a person or situation with fresh eyes and focusing on a more positive and healthy outcome.
