In today’s show we have John Gray the author of Men are from Mars women are from Venus one of the best - selling non fiction books of all time and a world renowned authority on relationships.
Time and time again I have seen sporting performance affected both good and bad by what is happening at home in personal relationships.
It is pretty tough to put all of your attention on your sport when the life force is being drained out of you elsewhere. Conversely when you feel happy and fulfilled at home good play on the field can then be an expression of that happiness.
John has some really forthright views that will really get you thinking about how you approach your personal relationships and how we unwittingly fall into the traps of doing all of the wrong things for the right reasons.
We talk about the different ways that men and women process emotions and how the needs of people can be so different.
