    Codependency and Enabling Relationships

    in Entertainment

    Watching someone you love head down the wrong path is a difficult task, but are you helping them for right reasons? In a codependent relationship it is natural to think that only one person is making bad life choices, or only on party is ill. But if you truly look at the relationship closely you will see that both parties have deep rooted issues. Join us tonight as we discuss ways to find out if you are in a codependent or enabling relationship.

    Are You Helping or Enabling?

    in Finance

    When someone we love is going through a hard time financially, it's natural for us to want to jump in and help them.  But what happens when your help ISN'T helping, but instead enables the person to continue to be financially irresponsible?  It can be hard to know when to bail someone out of their messes and when to show them some much-needed "tough love."  This is especially tricky when that person is your adult child.  I'll talk about the signs to look for that indicate you've crossed over into enabling and how to set healthy boundaries.  As always, if you have questions before the show, email them to me at Christine@ChristineLuken.com and I'll answer them on the air.

    Marketers: Enabling your customers through their buying journey

    in Marketing

    Feel like you’re providing customers and prospects the “right” information at the “right” time as they travel through their buying journey? Having a 360-degree customer view that enables you to predict what they want and how to meet their business needs is essential. When customers’ experiences meet or exceed their expectations using your product/service it’s a customer/company win/win.

    Presence Practice With James Westly!

    in Health

    TWU Radio welcomes James Westly to the show!  James is a licensed psychotherapist who specializes in the reduction or elimination of obsessive thinking.  He is also the author of My Journey to Now.

    Tune in as James share his idea of Presence Therapy (PT) in which he proposes that the mind is not who we are but is something we have. It is a powerful instrument, but because we, as a society, believe our mental process is our true identity, we are not trained in its correct use. Quantum Physics shows us how everything is connected, therefore a change in one area effects change in all other areas. James believes most of what we call mental illness is the consequence of obsessive thinking. If we change one thing, if we learn to quiet our mind and master the powerful tool it certainly is, then everything changes in a positive, functional, way. Changing your relationship to thought opens new doors into developing your greatest potential.

    “It is my mission to EMPOWER my clients through mastering their mental process using the tools and techniques of Ancient Wisdom, facilitating good health and enabling them to consciously manifest the life they desire.”

    Rethinking Failure: How Losing Leads To Winning And Increases Performance

    in Entrepreneur

    How do you perceive and think about failure? What is it? What does it look like? What are the characteristics of failure…and how does it impact your life?

    In today’s society that demands instant results and glorifies “perfection”, too much is made of failure, mostly because of it’s impact on the ego. One of the great fertilizers of fear is the concept that failure is “bad”, or in some cases “noble”.

    All too often, people treat fear like a terminal illness; as if one (or many) defeats somehow marks them for a life doomed to disappointment. On the other side, the self-indulgent martyr might be tempted to grovel publicly about every small setback in an attempt to gain acknowledgment from an enabling environment.

    But in neither case is failure being used as a lever for momentum, or a weapon of mass production and high-performance.

    Join JT for a no-hold-barred discussion on the power of failure and why reexamining its value and importance can be a game-changer in your business and life.
