FHR #004 - Freedom Principle 3 of 5: Relationships


  • Why relationships are important in life and work
  • Before you start to work on relationships with others you’ve got to look inside yourself
  • The difference between introverts and extroverts
  • The best books to help you work on your personal and work relationships


  • This episode covers relationships with humans, your relationship with spirituality will be covered in a later episode.
  • This episode also covers more than just romantic and personal relationships.
  • Relationships and understanding them is important because relationships are everywhere, for example when doing real estate there are so many relationships with all the different people in the process - pre sale and post sale.
  • We need to work on relationships if you want to be in the world as they’re a very important part of life.
  • We’re all born instinctively to need relationships although they can be very easy to take for granted, especially the one with our spouse. 
  • Bryce and his wife went to a relationship retreat and he was surprised to find that they spent 80% time working on the relationship with themselves.
  • He learned that childhood will shape your relationships of the future - everyone has childhood experiences which shape our journey.
  • The things we project onto other people are usually things we don’t like about ourselves.
  • Self analysis is important and the relationship that needs the most work is the one with ourselves.  
  • We need to work through our own stuff and dig deep, so that we can provide value to others.
  • Don’t compete against others, only compete against yourself.
  • Introverts and extroverts; Extroverts get their energy from working and interacting with other people, whereas introverts recharge from being alone.
  • You can’t fix people the same way you’d want to be fixed; you’ve got to treat them how they work rather than how you work.
  • This is explained perfectly in the book ‘Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus’, that everyone has either masculine and feminine energy which creates different needs to be met.
  • The second recommended book is ‘His needs, her needs’ which is a bit on the darker side and bit of a reality check talking about the worst cases that could happen.
  • The third recommended book is ‘The 5 Love Languages’ which is the key to finding out what people want.
