Episode 79: False Narratives Have Bad Consequences… Rebuilding Community Trust with Chris Sherwin of the 3 Cops Talk Podcast

This week’s guest, Chris Sherwin, is an active duty police officer of more than 20 years, serving the public in Chicago’s suburbs. He and 2 other active duty policeman have a vitally important podcast, 3 Cops Talk, where they face tough subjects including police brutality, racial tension, how to keep yourself and your family safe during traffic stops and so much more. 

After all the misinformation spread by the media and politicians alike surrounding the incident in Minneapolis with George Floyd, Ferguson and other incidents where police encounters ended in tragedy, Chris and his co-hosts Scott & Shaun knew it was time to do something. Chris brings so much value to this week’s episode of the Derate The Hate podcast, and the trio of active duty coppers, along with their guests, do the same each week on their podcast. This is truly an episode you’ll want to download and share often. 

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…
