Episode 105: The Story of You

Uncategorized Jan 16, 2023

What stories do you have about yourself? Whether you’re conscious of it or not, you have a story that’s playing in your mind all the time of who you are, what you’re doing, and what you’re capable of. Sometimes, this story is extremely painful and creates a lot of negative results in our life. On top of that, it might not even be true.

If you have a painful story about who you are and everything you’ve done wrong, it’s impossible to feel good about yourself in a sustainable way. You’re just creating a cycle of negative emotion, negative action, and negative results. So, if you’re ready to tell a new story about yourself that isn’t influenced by shame and judgment, this episode is for you.

Tune in this week to dig deeper into your story of you. I’m giving you a practical exercise to get clear on the ways your story of you is leaving you feeling unworthy and shameful, so you can get clear on the facts of your story and how...

Episode 101: What’s Possible with Chaz

Uncategorized Dec 19, 2022

While there are lots of people out there bragging about losing weight or breaking other habits that aren’t serving them, there aren’t many people sharing their success with quitting pornography. This fosters a belief that quitting porn is impossible, or that you have to be stuck with this habit forever, and this is just not true.

This is why I love sharing success stories from my clients. Chaz is one of them, and he’s got so many great insights to share with us about his journey in this week's episode. There are specific challenges around quitting porn, especially if you’ve been raised in a conservative religion, and as a member of the LDS Church, Chaz did the work to challenge some of those narratives while continuing to keep his faith.

Episode 99: How to Guarantee Success

Uncategorized Dec 05, 2022

Can you guarantee success? The truth is, no one else can guarantee success for you, but you can make it a certainty for yourself. Nobody else out there can do the work for you. This is all about taking responsibility for your own healing, and cultivating a mindset that makes success inevitable.

Whether you’re thinking it consciously or unconsciously, it’s easy to blame other people for how we operate. You are not responsible for your trauma, woundedness, and hurt, but you are responsible for your healing and whether or not you view porn moving forward. Even if you have urges, you don’t need to answer them with pornography. So, how do you live from that place of self-responsibility?

Tune in this week to decide what you want your future with porn to look like, and start taking responsibility for creating that result. I’m sharing why only you can guarantee that you’ll quit porn, and why this is the best news ever.

At this time of year, it’s so easy...

Uncategorized Nov 28, 2022

As humans, we naturally want to do all the things. We set goals like losing weight, improving our finances, quitting drinking, working on the house, traveling more, and quitting pornography all at the same time. However, if you want to challenge yourself and achieve a new goal, like quitting porn, you need laser focus.

Sure, all of the things you want to do are important. But if you’re working on so many areas at once, you won’t end up achieving anything significant. So, I’m here to encourage you to try on some discipline, not allowing your brain to convince you that you need to do everything all at once.

Episode 96: Emotion Doc: Radical Acceptance

Uncategorized Nov 14, 2022

So many people who are struggling with unwanted porn use believe that if they allowed themselves to feel acceptance of where they are right now, they would immediately start justifying their actions and therefore won’t try to change. But what I have found is that the opposite is true.

Carl Rogers said, “The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change.” This is what radical acceptance means. Practicing radical acceptance won’t mean you’ll stay stuck, it's what will fuel the change you want. So this week, I’m offering my favorite sentences that you can add to your Emotion Doc to help you access this emotion.

Join me on this episode to discover what radical acceptance means, what it looks like in practice, the energy radical acceptance will bring to the actions you take, and how to practice feeling this emotion on purpose using the Emotion Doc.
