Ever have someone offer to help you and you say – “No, I got it.”? Why? Why we are so reluctant to ask other people for help when we really could use it? This episode begins with a discussion on why asking for help is hard and yet it is one of the smartest things you will ever do. http://rd.com/advice/relationships/phrases-make-people-trust/

Chance and probability rule your life. Yet how much do you understand about them? Ian Stewart knows about them better than most people. Ian a Professor Emeritus of math at the University of Warwick in England and author of the book Do Dice Play God: The Mathematics of Uncertainty (https://amzn.to/2MWjer8). Listen as he explains how, for example, a slot machine appears to be “hot” one day but not another. Or, what really determines whether a coin flip will end in heads or tails. And most importantly, how this all applies to your life.  

Where do women typically put their purse when going to a restaurant? They sling it over the back of the chair or put it on the floor. Listen as I explain why both of those options are such bad ideas that can easily get your identity stolen – and a simple way every woman can secure her purse and never worry again. http://rd.com/advice/travel/purse-theft-safe/

Motivational speakers can be very inspiring – but motivation for you can’t really come from someone else’s story. Susan Fowler, author of the book Master Your Motivation: Three Scientific Truths for Achieving Your Goals (https://amzn.to/2HJneXV) joins me to explain the real science of motivation – and how it works. Listen and discover how to find your motivation that will sustain you to achieve even when times are tough.
