Marriage is one of the most challenging yet rewarding pursuits for a man. Unfortunately, very few of us have ever been taught how to successfully navigate the dynamics between men and women. And, all too often, it leads to headache, heartbreak, and divorce.

Today, I’m joined by marriage expert Keith Yackey to talk about these dynamics and how to successfully build a long and thriving marriage. We talk about the ROI (return of intimacy) in marriage, how a man gains his power back after giving it away, the “mommy matrix,” why seeking her validation will backfire, and the 5 dials of a powerhouse marriage.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:

 

  • Thriving in business vs thriving in marriage
  • Five dials that help men measure effectiveness
  • Women want you to be a good parent
  • Women want you to be her partner
  • Women want you to be a producer
  • Women want you to have fun
  • Women want you to do what you say you’re going to do, when you say you’re going to do it
  • Become the guy that any woman would be thrilled to be with

Serious pornography addiction is something millions and millions of men are currently dealing with. Many of these men know their addiction has gotten out of hand and yet they cannot seem to find a way to break the shackles of pornography.

My guest today has worked with thousands of men over the last 4 years to finally overcome their destructive addiction once and for all. His name is Sathiya Sam and today we talk about the three greatest obstacles to overcoming addiction, how viewing pornography is often a symptom of a deeper problem, why safety, intimacy, and significance lie at the root of this addiction, why traditional methods of overcoming pornography don’t work, and 3 pillars every man needs to establish if he hopes to finally free himself from porn.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:

 

  • The barrier to entry to watch porn is much lower today
  • Behavior changes that indicate an addiction
  • How unmet needs can lead to viewing pornography
  • Usually the side effects of masturbation are more negative than positive
  • Negatively rewiring the brain through watching porn
  • The downside of counting streaks

Psychological safety. It’s not something that we think a whole lot about even though we talk a lot about a man’s innate desire to protect those he’s closest to. But when it comes to the mental and emotional security of our loved ones, we often fall short.

Today, Larry and I talk about powerful communication strategies with our wife and kids, how crucial climate is when it comes to communicating effectively, how curiosity serves as a powerful lubricant for improving our conversations, and how to effectively create psychological safety for our loved ones to open up to us.
