Recently, Dr. Phil sent life development coach Mike Bayer out on a special assignment to try to figure out why some people get stuck in situations where they know they’re settling for less than they deserve.

“What I learned is everyone is stuck in their own way, says Coach Mike. “Everyone has that area of their life they need to change, and until they stop blaming another person, they don’t change it.”

Watch the video above to hear what behaviors – either from themselves or others – that the people he talked to say they used to put up with but will no longer tolerate in their lives.

Dr. Phil airs Monday-Friday. Check your local listing for airtimes.

Mike Bayer is a life development coach and Founder and CEO of CAST Centers. His latest book, “One Decision: The First Step to a Better Life,” is available now, everywhere books are sold.
