Episode 26: Chaos and Degradation Through Tribalism

Once you gain the understanding that many politicians, and those in the media have a vested interest in keeping us divided, mad &/or scared, things start to become much more clear when it comes to the world in which we live. We, as individuals, must not allow those in politics and the media to drive our emotions, to put a wedge between us, and to keep us cowering and waiting for the next bit of chaos or crisis. We must not allow the division and degradation of our society. Do not allow those who have a vested interest in division make the boundaries by which you live your life. #DerateTheHate


Episode 24: It’s Not What You Said, It’s How You Said It

In our relationships, whether it be with a spouse, a co-worker, someone we coach or mentor, have you ever caught yourself saying something in such a way that you can just tell that the other party is not taking what you’ve said the way you intended? Have you ever stopped to think it may be because of the way you are saying it? I know I have, and that is something that I consciously try to think about when I am trying to make a point to someone at a time in which I may be frustrated or upset for some reason. This is something we should all think about when we are interacting with others. Am I saying this in such a way that they will listen and absorb what I am saying, or has my tone or demeanor put them on defense or shutdown mode.

Episode 21: Say No to Losers, Go No Drama for the Win

What have you done today to make the world a better place? What have you done today to make your life a better life?
This week 2 things happened in my personal life that really hit home for me because it reiterated the idea that life is way too short to be unhappy, way too short for DRAMA. I don’t necessarily want to say that losers are always looking for drama, though that may be the case, but those that are always looking to instigate drama tend to spend an awful lot of time losing. If you don’t want to be a loser, and you want to win the hearts and minds of those with whom you disagree, you must go #NoDrama for the win!
