The Possibility Podcast With Mel Schwartz Episode 025: Relationship Resilience During Coronavirus Confinement

Even in the best of times, recurring relationship conflicts and frustrating communications can feel daunting. During the coronavirus pandemic confinement, these challenges can feel even more overwhelming. But as always, crisis creates – and often opens – the door to new opportunities.

The habitual default in the battle of right vs. wrong decimates relationships and destroys compassion, empathy and love. There is a way through this impasse, however. Mel shares a breakthrough that came to him in the midst of a couple’s session he was conducting that led him to what he calls The 5% Rule.

This technique allows us to slow down, listen and validate each other. In turn, we focus not on facts or argumentation but on feelings and perspectives. The 5% Rule enables the energy of conflict to subside and the opportunity for meaningful dialogue to ensue.

Be sure to read the companion article to this episode, and please join Mel for ongoing support during the coronavirus pandemic at this special site.

The Possibility Podcast With Mel Schwartz Episode 016: Reclaim Your Lost Potential

In this episode Mel explains how our innate state of potential becomes narrowed and finite due to personal experiences; often early in life.

From these events our sense of self can become limited and we may attach to limiting personal beliefs. He demonstrates how we came to these false beliefs and how we can transcend them. Mel utilizes a principle from quantum physics to explain this phenomenon and illuminates the pathway for us to once again stake claim to our infinite possibilities.

The Possibility Podcast Episode 006: Raising Resilient Children

Mel says, “As a culture we tend to focus on the achievement and success of our children but omit something far more important; their resilience.”

In this episode, Mel describes what he means by the word resilience, which he says is the source of our children’s well-being. He explains that the parenting rulebook — as we know it — fails us. Assisting our offspring to develop emotional intelligence is best accomplished by sharing more of our own life narrative, not just the good but our challenges as well.

Mel shares a compelling narrative about his own son regarding grades and motivation, and has a call-in from an educational counselor. He proposes that the intense pressure we put on children to perform academically at young ages is akin to unintentional child abuse. He highlights the path for nurturing your children to develop authentic self-esteem.

The Possibility Podcast Episode 005: Mel Schwartz Interviewed on the Science of Success Podcast

In this bonus episode Mel is interviewed by Matt Bodnar on The Science of Success Podcast.

Matt, a truly gifted interviewer, prompts Mel to share the evolution of his thinking and how he came to distill some principles of quantum physics into a guide for living with resilience and self-empowerment.

He asks Mel, “How is it possible that the laws of physics hold lessons that could help us redefine our relationship with anxiety and suffering and open the door to possibility?”

Mel and Matt talk about the implications of this new worldview and how profoundly it can benefit our lives. Mel shares the insights he’s garnered from his work as a psychotherapist in helping people overcome anxiety and depression and achieve mastery of their thinking through this process.

This episode is chock full of really unique opportunities to engage our transformative process. You don’t need to be good at science or a math wizard to appreciate what Mel is sharing. He makes it really accessible and easy to use.
