That’s because conflict itself is one of the most difficult things in life and we’d all love to see the conflicts in our lives truly resolved. Let’s be honest, conflict is one of the things in life that most of us would rather avoid - thus the well-known phrase “conflict avoidance.” Sadly, many of us do just that. We turn around and walk the other way instead of facing the conflict head-on.


In this episode David T.S. Wood has one goal: to equip you with a few tools that can make you more able to get to a resolution of the conflicts you face that is satisfactory and truly satisfying for everyone involved. The reason it’s so important to David is because his past was riddled with conflict and he’s seen the damage it can produce in relationships. The conflict resolutions skills he’s learned have enriched his life - and he wants to pass it on to you.


Every one of us has situations or relationships where conflict exists on a large or small scale. It’s part of life and part of the way relationships work. People will disagree, and not everyone is able to handle the disagreement in a healthy or constructive way; thus conflict occurs.

There are 5 main reasons that conflict occurs and why these very natural things make conflict resolution is so difficult:


  1. Differing values

  2. Making assumptions

  3. Differing expectations

  4. Differences in how people were brought up

  5. A lack of knowledge about how to achieve good resolution to conflicts

David’s way of pursuing conflict resolution


Much of how David deals with conflict is by following a maxim he’s learned: L.E.A.D.E.R.S resolve conflict - and each of the letters in the word “leader” is one of the points of action toward resolving conflict. Listen in to the episode to find out exactly what the acronym stands for and how you can implement it in your life to resolve the conflicts in your life.


An amplified life is a life that resolves conflict well. So do what you can to learn these principles, put them into practice, and watch the growth and joy increase. Conflict resolution matters to those who want to live and amplified life.

David made this recording live at the “Transformed Women” conference where he was one of the keynote speakers for the event. He’s talking with lots of women at the conference, and with Sandra Yancey, the founder of the conference and


The event was geared to teach women that they need to “play big” in order to fulfill their dreams and make the impact on the world they were meant to have. Transformation is what the conference is all about. It’s about teaching women how to make their light shine, how to glow from the inside out to make the world a better place because they are in it.


You’ll hear comments about “self love,” “inner meaning,” “self-worth,” and “investing in yourself.” They’re the touch-stones of a positive mental attitude that makes women powerful to be who they are meant to be and impact their families and improve their future - way beyond what they ever dreamed it could be. It’s a place of personal growth, a place of confidence and empowerment that can change your life. It’s what the “Transformed Women” event is all about.


Another thing that came of the conference was the ability to get out of the traps that are typical in the lives of women - regret, guilt, and many others. You’ll hear stories from women who attended the conference and the impact it had on them. There is deep meaning here, deep change from the stories of transformed lives.


Take a break today to encourage yourself by listening to this great podcast. The stories you’ll hear are real-life from the lips of real women. You’ll be able to relate to them because these women are in the place you are at. It’s time to Crank up your life because anytime is the right time to live larger and make a difference in the world.

Today David gets to resurrect a conversation from a while back. It was a great discussion of life and how to make the best of every situation, from the real-life experience of Pat Flynn.


Pat’s a well-known internet personality. He speaks at many conferences and is truly a jobless-to-self-made-success story. After being laid off from his job as an architect, Pat took matters into his own hands to crank up his own life through creating his own streams of income through business, marketing, and product creation. He’s become an inspiration to many people who have had difficult situations enter their lives and need a shot of encouragement that they can do something about it.


When Pat was laid off, he tried a lot of things to get income going quickly. He saw income trickle in a little at a time, and then hit his first large-scale success when he created an ebook teaching folks how to pass the LEED exam to become architects. It was a site he’d begun while he was still working and the ebook was his first attempt to monetize the site. It was a huge success, earning over $7000 the first day it was available.


From there, Pat started a podcast that became very popular (Smart Passive Income) and has moved on to become the key-note speaker at many world-class conferences, has created a book, other podcasts, and has become a “you can do it” example for the everyday man or woman who wants to create their own opportunity. If you’re in that boat, or thinking about climbing aboard, Pat’s story should give you plenty of encouragement to take the leap.
