Season 2, Episode 265: Transparency and What You Really Want

In today’s topical content show, Michael talks about (and demonstrates) transparency – and how it looks in business and at home. He also ties that in with tuning in to what we really want when we ask for something.

How much do you reveal about yourself, your true intentions, what you really want? Do you play things close to your vest in business, but open up at home and among friends? What are the rewards and the costs of being fully revealing?

When you get upset about not getting what you asked for, did you actually ask for what you want? If you’re getting frustrated because your spouse doesn’t want to watch a romantic movie with you, when all you really wanted was some snuggle-time – you might want to reframe your question, let go of the movie, and ask for what you want.
