When tragedy strikes or life knocks you down, how do you cope? What can we do to face life's most difficult moments with grace?

1. Don't hide or fall into silence thinking you are alone. When something bad happens, we tend to close off and not to talk to anyone because,"they don't understand me, " or "they haven't been through this." But, as harsh as it might sound when you are struggling, the reality is that nothing you are going through right now is unique... With seven billion people on the planet, and thousands of years of recorded history, please trust that someone has been through your circumstances. One of the greatest ways to cope is to realize you are not alone and to get social support. Ask to talk to someone. Call a friend. Go to a support group. You might be surprised to learn how many people care, how many have been through what you've been through, how many can help and provide perspective.

2. Define your meaning. When something bad happens, ask, "What does this mean to me?" and be bigger than thinking everything in life is permanent or your fault. Find an optimistic meaning for what you are going through, even if it seems like nothing good could come from it. You will get stronger if you decide the meaning of the event is there to teach you something, to allow you to grow, to urge you to change or be kind or take action. What lesson can be learned that will make you better or happier or more successful in the future?

3. Keep your perspective. Remember, you've been through tough times before and your circumstances will change. The struggle will lessen. It will hurt less one day. Trust things will improve. This too shall pass. Even if life suck right now, you have to believe things will get better, there will be light soon, you will make it through. Remember your blessings and strength and values and dreams... those things will keep you grateful and ready.

4. Keep a vision of the future that draws enthusiasm, excitement and engagement. No matter what, every single day, keep your enthusiasm for the day and for tomorrow alive. You control the meaning you give things, and thus the energy and emotion of your life. Keep a bright future at the forefront of your mind and everyday take at least one step toward it. You can do at least a few things today to move yourself forward. You are stronger than you imagine and a brighter day will be here soon.

Brendon! Another gem. Your videos bring a huge difference in my life. You're my guiding light. I can't thank you enough for such invaluable inputs.
I have a request - could you share thoughts about - being possessive, trying to stifle/limiting our partner, suspicion, distrust resulting in straining the relationship.

Could you also talk about anger management.

Thanks a bunch.

If you handle your money in the right way, you can have more, give more, and enjoy your life more.

Here's what you can do to start taking control of your money now:

1. Revisit your story about money. Where we come from and what we hear about money unconsciously shapes our lives. If you think rich people are negative or that having money is bad, you won’t attain wealth because you don’t want to be negative or bad. If wealth is something that brings you more happiness, joy, and service, you'll want to make more of it. So, first, redefine what wealth means to YOU!

2. Make sure you automatically invest. When get a check from your employer, have some of the funds automatically go into your savings account or investment account. This way you won't forget and you won't spend the money unnecessarily. Automatically investing mean your money will be earning money for you and working for you.

3. Ask the question, “How can I add more value in the time in which I serve?” Squeeze in more value. Hustle a little bit more. Serve even more. Adding more value to people in the same amount of time makes you more productive, gets you more recognition, and gives you more opportunities. There's no traffic beyond the extra mile! Just add a little more than anyone else is doing, and you'll be in a category of one.

4. Raise your standards for a reward! If you’re a High Performer and really adding value but you're still not being rewarded for your true contribution, raise your minimum of what you will allow in your life. Be bold, push the boundaries, and you will be rewarded.

When you follow these simple steps for handling your money, you will have a positive story about wealth, your money will be earning money for you, you will be adding more value, you will have a higher standard for yourself and you will be experiencing The Charged Life!

A must-listen for those who have lost faith in others, doubted humanity, pushed the doors to their minds and hearts closed.

In this episode of The Charged Life, #1 New York Times bestselling author and high performance coach Brendon Burchard riffs on the question: "How can I believe in people again if I've been so hurt and disappointed by other people?"

This is Brendon speaking freestyle, recorded in one take without prompter or notes.

Where are you in your relationships right now? Are you happy? Unhappy? Are you looking for someone? Have you been with someone for a long time?

Wherever you are, here are some universal ideas that can help you create greater love, connection and joy in your relationships:

1. Practice Positive Projection. Assume the best about your partner and project positive traits and ideas onto them. If you’ve been in a relationship a long time you may be tempted to think, “No, you don’t understand about MY partner…” But instead of going into old patterns, beliefs, hurts, and pains from the past -- assume the other person is there with you, for you, and in love with you. Do this, and instead of tearing your relationship apart, you will be bringing it closer together.

2. Learn To Listen Longer. The essence of being a better listener is to listen longer – and this is what deepens relationships. Don’t try to fix them. Don’t try to stop them. Don’t interrupt them. Allow the other person to express themselves. Be patient and listen longer.

3. Escape Together. Get away with your partner and go somewhere for 2 or 3 days every 90 days. You can go anywhere, but every 90 days schedule it and disappear together. Everybody CAN do this with the person they love. We get to choose what we do with our time, so reclaim your life agenda and escape together. If your relationship is important to you – prioritize it!

4. Stay In Your Job In The Relationship. What is your job in the relationship? TO LOVE! It’s so easy to forget this. Choose love over your past pains, hurts and fears. When you bring joy, acceptance, vibrancy, sensuality and compassion to your relationship, it gets easier and more positive.

Turn your intention to be more geared towards love in your relationship. Surprise them. Care for them. Add love. Add vibrancy. Add sensuality. Deliver more love to your partner and the world, and you might start to experience The Charged Life!

From my latest HuffPo article...
Positive people tend to attract other positive people and as soon as you reconnect with your friends who are positive, who do believe in people, who do believe in you, who do cheer you on, you start to access their network of other people like that....

Some people never accept reality. And perhaps that's a good thing, for what is real? If we aren't careful about how we define reality or attach labels and meaning to it, we can begin to drown in negativity and pessimism. People with personal power accept what is in front of them only after they have carefully defined it.

Brendon how to become more talkative and social with people. I mean i noticed on myself that i can't keep a conversation up and i'm usually lonely in my school, i just can't be myself with people and there's nobody to talk about the interests i like and i don't talk about the interests they like because i don't know what to talk about... for example they like a football team in my country but i don't. It ends up so nobody wants to talk with me about anything and they just ignore me, about my opinion for something if i agree or not. It feels like i'm a ''third'' wheel of a bicycle. Please respond :(

To succeed in 2015, we'll have to learn faster. Here's how:

1. You have to know what you want of your life before you become a master learner. If you don’t know what your goals are or dream life should look like, you don’t know WHAT to learn and, worse, you won’t be COMMITTED to truly learning it. Advanced learning requires clear focus and a definitive WHY for learning - without these you won’t stay disciplined enough to learn anything with real depth.

2. Avoid starting from scratch. With no model to begin from - no example or strategy you are following - you’re reinventing the wheel and doomed to waste time. So, what proven framework, person, strategy, or step-by-step instruction are you following in order to learn this new area?

3. Make a PRACTICE of mastering skillsets. A practice is a recurring habit or routine that deepens your skill in any given area. The important thing here is to make a daily practice of anything you truly want to learn. Without daily exposure and immersion in the area you are trying to learn you will never achieve mastery. Learning must be an everyday discipline.

4. Get feedback. As you begin something new, all leaps forward, all major advancement, rests on getting immediate feedback and direction. Learning is a social process, so ask other people for suggestions and direction as you move forward so you can adjust your approach. Don't listen to the haters, but never forget their can be valuable feedback from others even if you don't like how they delivered it.

5. Have a deadline. Without a timeline for developing your competencies, you’ll never act or you’ll fall off track. No deadline means guaranteed distraction. So, WHEN do you need to learn this new topic or reach the next level of skill? What’s the consequence if you don’t learn it by then? Knowing the answer to these two questions will accelerate your learning.

Frustrated with a lot of people in your life right now? Watch this and put it into practice. It's okay to release control and remember the challenges we all face. Be patient and supportive of others. Life rewards character.

Thank you, Brendon. I've been very frustrated with some people lately, and I did not know what to do with all the frustrations. Having watched your video, I think I now have an idea of how to have less frustrations and more connections with the people. I will put into practice what you talked about in the video. Thank you again, Brendon.
