Doctor Neha: Welcome to Talk Rx with Doctor Neha. This week I have an incredibly special guest, Mike Robbins, here with me. He’s part of the Hay House family and author of Nothing Changes Until You Do. And he’s agreed to ask one of his communication questions so that all of you can learn. Welcome, Mike.
Mike: Thanks for having me.
Doctor Neha: What’s a communication dilemma or something that keeps you up at night?
HI, and welcome to Talk RX with Doctor Neha. What do you want to know about communicating effectively with your family, with your friends, with your partner, with your boss, or with your colleagues? This week’s question comes from a woman in Florida. She says, “Dr. Neha, I’ve been in a fight with a friend for a long time. I wanted to reach out to her, but I’m not really sure how to open up the lines of communication again.
Welcome to Talk RX with Doctor Neha. A woman from New York wrote me an interesting question. She wants to know “Why is it that my friends at work as well as my family at home, when I’m with them, I feel like I’m walking on egg shells. How do I have so many moody people in my life?”
One thing I want to say is that you choose whom you surround yourself with. Certainly, we don’t often get to choose who our family is,
Doctor Neha: Welcome to Talk RX with Doctor Neha. This week, I have a special guest and friend, Lisa Garr. We’re both Hay House authors, and she has so graciously agreed to ask her communication question so that all of you can learn as she does. Welcome, Lisa.
Lisa: Thank you. Actually my favorite thing is communication. I seek and I live for constant conscious communication. That is one of the things that floats my boat, to be honest with you.
I think why I like to conduct interviews so much is because they’re super concentrated,
Hi and welcome to Talk RX with Doctor Neha. What are you wondering about in your communication with family, with friends, with bosses, with colleagues? This week I have a question from someone in Chicago. He asks, “Doctor Neha, I’ve been suffering from chronic sore throats and laryngitis off and on for the past four years. My friends said it’s because I’m not communicating something important. How does she know that? I mean, really, does that even happen?”
It sounds like you’ve been struggling with something ongoing because when you keep having the same experience relapsing over and over,
Doctor Neha: Welcome to Talk Rx with Doctor Neha. I have a special guest, Tom, who I’ve known actually for a few years. He was gracious enough to say that he would come and ask his communication question so all of you can learn as he does as well. Welcome, Tom.
Tom: You’re welcome. Thank you, great to see you.
Doctor Neha: I did some communication work with you a while ago.
Hi and welcome to Talk RX with Doctor Neha. I’d like to have you start to think about the friends, and family, and bosses, and colleagues, and neighbors around you and what kind of communication questions you might have to ask me. As you listen to this question that came in, I’d like you to be thinking about your life as well. Maybe you’ll have the next question that I address.
Here is a question that came in about family: “My sister-in-law and I butt heads at every family dinner and it’s just driving me crazy.
Today’s question comes in from David in Boulder, Colo. He asks, “What do I do when I’m talking to my boss, and he seems to go on and on and on. Now, don’t get me wrong, because he actually has some pretty interesting things to say. I like what he’s saying, but it seems that he is not actually having any regard for his time or my time. What do I do?”
That’s an excellent question. There are two pieces to this.
