Episode 107: Don’t Be Mad That It’s Over, Be Grateful That It Happened

I’m sure you’ve heard the phrase, and it may sound cliche, “Don’t be mad that it’s over, be glad that it happened.” Now, quite often this is said in regards to a relationship that has ended,  but this is not one of those times…

This week I was devastated by some revelations having to do with my deer camp. Those who’ve listened to the podcast with any regularity for any amount of time know that my deer camp was very much my happy place and deer hunting is something I most look forward to each and every year. Check out this episode to find out more about what happened. 

I also dive more into mindset, gratitude and some numbers associated with a study about the number of thoughts a person has on average each day, how many of them are negative and how much of that negative thinking is just recycled negativity from the day before. This is quite important because only we as individuals have the power to change this for ourselves…

This episode also includes some exciting updates on Braver Angels events that are taking place, including a project I’m currently involved in with the former director of the National Institutes of Health, Dr. Francis Collins… Links Below….

Episode 81: Road Rage… Hate on the Go!

You’re cruising down the highway, passing those in the right lane who obviously don’t have anywhere to go that is quite as important as your time or where you’re headed, and it happens…  Everything was going just as you had hoped and then you come upon that person in the left lane that is creeping along at the speed limit. At first you think, “they’ll see me if I just get a bit closer”, then a minute or two passes, your face starts to get a little hot, then someone passes you on the right, you’ve got no room to get over, you swear under your breath, things in my car are escalating and I’m the only one here, what’s wrong with them, AAAHHHH!!!

I’ve been in the transportation industry for 22 years. Many of those years I’ve spent living on the road as a driver, and the last several managing multiple drivers. If I haven’t seen it, I’ve heard about it, and a lot of times, the IT is not good. In recent years, the nonsense we see on the roads as drivers, whether professional or not, has been getting worse. These several months since the pandemic began have compounded the problem with higher tensions, increased drug & alcohol use, and people losing their minds in general. 

In this episode I share some recent experiences that have happened as I’ve filled in on routes in the big rig. I talk about personal accountability, some statistics, and tips to keep yourself and your loved ones safer on the road. Make sure to thank a trucker today, for they are the ones that keep food on the table and goods of all kinds moving across our great nation.

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.
