We are designed to craft our reality from the way we think — Our self-talk determines the joy we will have regardless of our circumstances — Habits of negative self-talk are destructive because you obstruct yourself without thinking about it — We’re designed to operate out of habit to keep us from going insane — Habits can be good or bad, so we must take care which we adopt — Our host understands the power of self-talk from his own experience — Who are we not to have a glorious end? — God’s plan is that we have a glorious end when we make the right choices — Too many of us don’t understand the fundamentals of dating and so struggle with it — The Lord mercifully led our host through a series of realizations that brought joy to his journey — A key turning point was realizing the need to own one’s life — We are very often our own worst obstacle
We can get more out of a piece of equipment when we read the instructions first — We can also more out of ourselves when we read the instructions first — The instruction manual for life is the scriptures, but some of the instructions we need are not in plain sight — The Atonement offers the hope of a brighter future — The plan was not for us to end in failure but in glorious success — We stand in our own way when we engage negative self-talk and compare ourselves to others — We become the weighted average of who we spend our time with — We have our best life only when we make conscious choices against the “normal” or default selection — Our host reveals why we can’t just eliminate a negative habit but must replace it with a positive one — The scriptures have the best content for positive self-talk — Our host illustrates with the very first chapter of scripture
We need to replace habits of comparing ourselves with others to comparing ourselves with ourselves — Comparing ourselves with ourselves is the only fair comparison we can make — Your best life is founded on positive habits — Your joy comes from your choices, not the choices of others — We see dating as a black box that performs magic for some and not for others because we don’t understand the fundamentals of the dating journey — We can do anything masterfully when we’ve mastered the fundamentals — One fundamental principle of dating is that you must secure an agreement to progress from one stage to the next — Negative habits influence others to use their agency against us, thus denying us the agreements we need to progress in our dating journey — You can’t do the same things and get different results — If you’ve had negative habits a long time, starting positive habits will feel weird at first, but you need to keep going
