Dr. Phil's 3 Secrets For a Happy & Successful Relationship


If you haven’t found “your person” yet, chances are you want to. It’s natural for us to want someone who will help support us, show us unconditional love, and experience life with us. I’ll be honest though — nowadays, it’s tough. We’re all a couple clicks or swipes away from finding a different person, so working through the tough times in relationships and marriages instead of running away has become challenging for so many people out there.

So, what’s the answer? What are the keys to building a healthy relationship that both partners want to invest their time, energy, and devotion into? What work do we need to do on ourselves before we jump into the next relationship? How do we know when a person will be a great long-term partner, and when they won’t be? 

Lucky for us, my guest today is someone who has helped millions of people around the world work through their relationship and marriage issues: Dr. Phil. And he walks the walk too — he’s been married now for 48 years! 

In Part 2 of my conversation with him, he walks us through the three biggest pieces of advice he has on developing a happy, successful marriage or partnership. I’m SO excited for you to listen to this episode. Please help me welcome back the one, the only Dr. Phil to The School of Greatness!

“When you start being parents you don’t stop being wives, husbands, and lovers.” @drphil  

My guest today is Dr. Phil McGraw. He’s one of the most well-known and trusted mental health professionals in the world, best-selling author of 9 books and the host of TV’s #1 daytime talk show, DR. PHIL.

He focuses on presenting compelling stories about real people with a variety of emotional and behavioral problems, stripping away the shame and embarrassment that too often keeps people from seeking help.

He continues to value his academic training and professional qualifications and insists that the information provided on his show is based on evidence-based treatment options and state-of-the-art research in the fields of psychology, psychiatry and medicine.

No matter if you’re in a relationship or marriage already, or are actively searching for one, I know this special episode will give you advice you can apply to your life TODAY! Dr. Phil is one of the world’s leading voices on the topic, and the wisdom he gives in this conversation is a true game changer. I’m so thankful for having him on.
