Good episode? Give it some love!
How do you successfully start to have a difficult conversation? Try these four strategies and it will go SO much better: 1. Don't enter the conversation with your current emotions. 2. Begin with the end in mind.  3. Use the XYZ pattern of delivering difficult conversations or making requests.  4. Be more patient.  The world needs to see you be the best of you. The world needs to see you living a Charged Life.

In fact, we've been told that we're the only podcast and YouTube show with so many millions of downloads and views not to have a sponsor. Why? Because I don't like ads busting in my ear, and I bet you don't either. So, I self-fund all my videos, podcasts, posts, and projects. That means it's only by your support of my posts, books, online courses, and live events that allows me to be ad-free. So visit to signup for latest stuff, and keep sharing. - Brendon
