Episode 60: Critical Race Theory is Hateful Nonsense

“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.” ~Martin Luther King Jr.
There is very little doubt in my mind that Dr. King would be spinning in his grave when it comes to the topic of “Critical Race Theory”. There is way too much good in this world to let the loudest, most hateful and most divisive voices win the day. Critical Race Theory is just that, hateful and divisive nonsense.

Do you want your children automatically labeled as a victim or oppressed because they are a child of color? Do you want your child automatically labeled as a racist because they are white? That is how Critical Race Theory works, we shall no longer judge a person by the content of their character, but by the color of their skin. It does not matter how old you are, where you come from, what good or bad you’ve done in your life, nothing matters but the color of your skin…

Episode 55: Not My Truth, Not Your Truth, There is only THE TRUTH

Have you ever heard someone say, that’s “My Truth” or “That’s his/her Truth”? I don’t know how it started, but here’s another life tip from Wilk… There is no my truth, your truth, his truth or her truth, THERE IS ONLY THE TRUTH.

In this week’s episode I had to bring up an article/video from the Daily Wire I saw of a professor at a college in southern California that was berating one of her students for a report he did where he called police heroes. She equates modern police to slave catchers in early American history. I only brought it up, because I saw on line where someone had defended her hatred by saying “that is her truth”. There is no such thing as “her truth”, there is only her hate filled perception of reality, big difference. Listen to this episode and let me know what you think. Maybe she’d benefit from episode 52 where I discuss the Reticular Activating System and the Perpetual Victim Mentality. If she would listen with an open mind I’m certain she’d benefit greatly as would anyone…

Episode 53: Attitude of Gratitude and Personal Accountability Challenge… 1 Year Anniversary Show!

Do you want to change your life? Do you want to change the world?

Join me in doing the DTH 30 day Attitude of Gratitude & Personal Accountability Challenge! As I discussed with Denise Albright back in Episode 50, when you begin to record daily things that you are grateful for, you begin to naturally find more things to be grateful for and as a result become a happier person. This is also in large part due to the reticular activating system which I discuss in Episode 52.
The same can be said for personal accountability. Much of what happens “to us” in life is the result of our own actions and decisions.  By accepting accountability for those actions and decisions, we consciously learn to make better decisions. We as individuals are responsible for our actions, and how we react to outside forces, no matter what those forces may be. No matter how much one wants to deny the truth, much of the “bad” we encounter in life could have been avoided by making better decisions, &/or reacting differently to outside influences.

Episode 52: Reticular Activating System (RAS) and The Perpetual Victim Mentality

How does (RAS) Reticular Activating System relate to The Perpetual Victim Mentality?
For many, perception is reality, and when it comes to peoples’ perception of things, it begins with what they are most focused on most of the time. I’ve stated it many times before and I’ll continue to say it, those who constantly drive the victim mentality into their children are committing child abuse. What this does is set the primary focus in that child’s mind that the world is out to get them and as such, their reticular activating system will seek out every opportunity in their day to day lives to manifest that as a reality.  Conversely, as I discussed with Denise Albright in Episode 50 of the podcast, when one focuses on and looks for things to be grateful for, finding gratitude daily becomes easier, and subsequently, happiness and a more fulfilling life becomes the result. It’s a tale of 2 choices with entirely different results.
This is truly an episode that everyone can greatly benefit from! I challenge you to prove me wrong…
