Ep. 5 My Jiu-Jitsu Journey to Purple Belt with Dave Glaser
After five years of training in the "gentle art" of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, I was honored and humbled to receive my purple belt from the Easton Academy in Denver, Co.  I wanted to include our community in the celebration of that promotion as it has so much to do with moments in my life where I was tested and needed to stay grounded. Jiu-jitsu is a practice that helps me do that in the healthiest way possible.  In January of '22, I was consumed with work and I felt my reactivity showing up more than I would have liked through the stressful busy season.  Now it's March and I am back to training and facing the next chapter in my life with humility and a new mindset, which impacts my relationships in every area of my life. Tune in now to hear the full story and celebrate with me today!  If you are looking for more support in your life, send me a message on Instagram @daveglaser_cscs to learn about one on one or group coaching for nutrition, fitness, life and love with me today!

Less is More with Samantha Joy

Misunderstood as The Challenger with Libby Cole
 Libby Cole, owner of Expand Coaching and Consulting and an Enneagram 8w7, joins me on the podcast to talk about her experience as The Challenger personality type. She has learned through her life and business experience that Challengers who are women are often times the most misunderstood Enneagram type. Libby wants to set the record straight that female 8s can be soft, influential, and great leaders all at the same time! I couldn’t agree more that she shows up with empathy, sensitivity, and a lot of fire for her mission in life. Libby’s background professionally was mostly higher education before taking the leap to become a business owner and empowering herself to lead others through Enneagram coaching. Libby believes that misunderstanding and miscommunication is what holds people back in relationships. In her words, “When people begin to learn more about themselves, they can also be more understanding of others. This is a beautiful outcome of learning the Enneagram, the awareness that there are 8 other ways of approaching something. It can also give you permission to step into your true, authentic self without apology.” If her message resonates with you today, please connect with her on Instagram @enneagramtoexpand or via email at libby@expandcandc.com To connect with me about in home personal training, click fitlifechampions.com now to book a complimentary consultation to learn more about your top three goals in fitness and wellness!

On this week’s podcast episode, my guest is Perri Chase, a powerhouse, badass, and challenger on the enneagram, like me!

Anger and The Challenger
On today's episode, I discuss how the challenger personality type becomes solidified within us and often times, that is as a result of an instance of trauma or repeated trauma in our formative years.  I alert you with a heads up at the time during the episode where you may want to fast forward.  We will dive deep into the enneagram, attachment styles, and self-leadership to learn more about what our anger is trying to teach us throughout the episode and it will be confronting, I promise. The challenger personality type on the Enneagram reacts first with anger, as do the 9 and the 1, as they are part of the body feeling triad.  Over the past few years, it has been part of my journey to get in touch with that anger to understand more clearly what is lying beneath it.  I also answer our audience members' questions of how to recognize and display a clean version of our anger so that we can form deeper and more intimate relationships without blowing our lids!

An Embodiment Practice and The Challenger
On today's episode, I will share what I've learned through my own embodiment practices and how they relate to The Enneagram, attachment styles, and self-leadership.  As a challenger on the Enneagram, I tend to lean towards more intense activities that teach me how to embody strength, confidence, humility, and direction in my life. If you say someone embodies patience, you may see them pausing before they respond to you in ALL situations, no matter their emotional state. If you say that someone is present in the moment, you may see them joking or laughing with the group or supporting one person off to the side, speaking softly as they comfort them through a difficult time. If you say that someone is the embodiment of a quality, you may mean that that is their most noticeable characteristic or the basis of all they do.  If you're looking for more support as you navigate modern dating, please try out our private, small group coaching program now!  It's free for your first week and click here now to sign up.

Empathy and The Challenger
On today's episode, I will walk you through how I learned that I needed to show more empathy for others and the journey I've been on since.  What is empathy?  There are three types of empathy: cognitive, emotional, and when you combine the two... compassionate.   It took a series of tough life experiences to show me that I could communicate with empathy in a more compassionate way.  In today's episode, I dig deeper into empathy with a Maya Angelou quote to exemplify this, "Do the best you can until you know better.  Once you know better, do better." What comes up for you as you listen to today's episode?  Join us for a free week of group coaching to learn better how to use your intuition to communicate better with empathy in your relationships!  Click here to sign up now and for a limited time, I will include a 60 minute coaching call with me.

Dating Multiple People in 2021
Picture this. It’s late 2021. You’re out there reconnecting with the world, the people in it, and all those possibilities. After way too much time socially distanced, you and a lot of other people are hungry for conversation and closeness.   One solution: dating multiple people (safely, obviously!)  These days, dating more than one person at one time is not unusual. In fact, I am willing to bet the trend will grow even bigger.   But how does dating multiple people actually sit with you? What would that really look like?  That’s something harder to nail down. Especially if you’re unaware of your attachment style.  In this episode, we’ll dig into what dating more than one person looks like, but we’ll do it through the lens of your attachment style. This will help focus your options, minimize discomfort, and optimize your dating strategy.   We’ll quickly break down all 4 attachment styles and some ways they manifest. Then, I’ll lay down specific advice for what to expect—and how to process—dating multiple people.  Are you looking for more support right now in your dating life?  Apply here for a free week trial of our small group coaching program that meets every Tuesday at 7 pm mst.

On this week’s episode of the podcast, Dr. Sheva Assar and I discussed how social media plays a big part in today's modern dating. We ask a question submitted by our audience, “What are some red flags to look out for when we are vetting our dates we met online?”  This episode is for both educational and entertainment purposes as we laughed and laughed at a couple stories from my dating history; including the one time I got engaged on Facebook before proposing! "I'm sorry Dave, did you say engaged on Facebook?" It just might have been my first experience with an activated anxious attachment and a trauma bond for me.   Dr. Sheva and I also discuss setting healthy boundaries around social media use and what we can do to reduce our use to improve our self-esteem and confidence!

Creating a Safe Space in a Relationship with Morgan Wade, type 2
On this week’s episode of the podcast, Morgan Wade and I discussed how the body holds onto memories in “trauma knots”. Morgan, a Focalizing Practitioner, believes that healing is a return to wholeness for us all.  We ask the question, “What is change?” and want to remind you that when we change, our relationship dynamics change as well. My biggest takeaway from our conversation is that “whatever is coming up within us, is coming up for us”.  To me, that means that the only way out is through the emotions and experiences that caused the hurt.  Our conversation led us into a story from my parenting experience where my daughter Madison told me “Don’t ever shake a baby!” That's good advice.  Morgan and I had the opportunity to discuss how attachments with our caregivers form in childhood to inform our adult relationships. We close out the episode with some scenarios where a parent can create a safe space for their child to form a secure attachment!   If her message resonates with you today, please connect with Morgan on Instagram @thelovingkind_ or through her podcast @deadhearts.club

How to Become Exclusive when Dating in 2020
I'm not new to the singles scene.  For three years, I have been digging deep and peeling back the layers of my relationship story while surrounding myself with as many positive and uplifting people I possibly could through the podcast.  If I were to have someone tell me point blank, "How to become exclusive" with someone I liked, I would have laughed out loud. It sounds so simple.  You like someone, you tell them so and you're exclusive, right?  Almost.  Not quite. Consider that everyone has a breakup story the found transformational at one point in their life.  That's me.  Broken and at a turning point in my life three years ago so I set out on a personal mission to uncover how my past traumas and experiences impact my relationships today. And on today's episode, I share with you three things to be mindful of when becoming exclusive with someone (casually, spoken for, exclusive, or any level or relationship) while dating in the modern world; ie. texting, online dating, and ghosting for starters. Those three steps are: 1. Be clear about what you want 2. Be clear about what you don't want 3. What does healthy communication look like to you?  If you're looking for more support in your dating life right now (even if you aren't dating) and you'd like to join a group of like-minded, strong, and independent singles, try out our private, members only group coaching program now!  Just click here to try it for a week absolutely free.
