Does your parents' relationship affect yours?

Research has shown that how your parents interacted with each other can and does have an impact on your own relationship — consciously and unconsciously. Without even realizing it, their relationship became a template of what a marriage looks like.

In this podcast Hank Wagner talks about how you need to evaluate your thinking about your marriage and determine what beliefs are worth holding on to, what you should let go of and what new beliefs for your marriage are possible.

He also reminds us that marriage is the most important team there is because it affects generations. Your relationship is an example for your children.

Death is hardly the go-to topic of conversation. It is uncomfortable and difficult to talk about. However, it is something we can't avoid no matter how healthy we eat, how much we exercise or how well we avoid stress. In most cases we don't know when, so sadly we can't plan our goodbyes. In this podcast, Hank Wagner challenges us not to wait until our last day when you can add value to someone’s life everyday, and he answers three questions surrounding loss of a loved one:
1. What can we do for someone grieving?
2. What can we learn from a loss?
3. What changes might we make in life?

In any given day, we could have 50,000-60,000 thoughts running through our mind.  Everything we do is connected to our thoughts, so in turn, perception drives us. What we are tempted to target in life, or the way we respond or react to situations are guided by our inherent thoughts.  The character and content of thought define the way we conduct our lives, which in turn, account for the outcomes of our actions. It is said, “As you think, so you become.”

In Hank Wagner's podcast "What do you think?", he takes a deep-dive into thoughts and the impact they can have on you.  You will come away with  tips on how to process your thoughts and also practices you can use to manage your thinking process.

A belief system could be best described as this invisible force behind our behavior and decision making. Humans accumulate thousands of beliefs throughout our lifetime about all aspects of life. We gain them through how we were raised, things people say, things we hear or read, and many other external influences we have been exposed to.

In this podcast, Hank Wagner talks about being aware of our belief system. He warns us about how we influence children and encourages us to challenge our belief system as it is an opportunity for growth. Next time you interact with someone who disagrees with your position, use it as an opportunity to venture outside your intellectual bubble. The side effects may be increased humility, a higher degree of intelligence, better listening skills and a more original point of view.

Who needs an internal memory when you have Siri? Why figure out a problem when you can Google it?

Today's society uses technology to problem solve, and we are doing less actual thinking. Are we allowing technology to dumb us down by looking for ready made solutions instead of relying on our own instincts and thought processes.

In this podcast, Hank Wagner returns and explains why we need to care about our minds and our thoughts. More importantly, we need to care about the thoughts of others for better understanding and communication which leads to happier and more successful lives.
