The news is 99.9% negative. Life is 99.9% positive. So why do you spend so much time watching and reading the news? This week, we talk about how Joel has eliminated the news from his “daily diet” and the positive results that have come about because of this change. He shares his secret how anyone can easily make the same change and wean themselves off all that negativity every day.
It’s amazing how we can run with just the simplest of topics. This week, we talk about “the details”. That’s it … just the details. Yet in the course of such a “weak” topic, we manage to quickly turn it into a discussion of our dream for building a huge national audience for our show, how people we know have dealt with tremendous adversity by not getting dragged down by the details, and how to turn the details from being your enemy into being your friend. Crazy? Like a fox! Don’t miss this one.
We tried something new this week. We recorded our show, as usual, on Saturday, but we recorded it live on YouTube. We figure this is a good way to increase our audience, by giving listeners who might be interested the opportunity to hear us as we record our weekly show and to even interact with us during the taping.
And who knows? Maybe will pick up some new listeners via YouTube!
Of course, this means we end up talking about the wonders of modern technology and how they help us all to feel good … if we choose to feel good!
Computers can be frustrating for a lot of people, but it’s how you react when the computer doesn’t behave the way you want it to behave that determines how slowly or how quickly the problem will get resolved.
This week we talk about avoiding getting stuck on repetitive behaviors, like getting frustrated every time the computer doesn’t work the way we expect it to work, by learning to look for destructive patterns in our own lives so we can put them aside in favor of new, more positive behaviors.
Joel Elston shares some great news with us this week. He has applied once again to become a foster/adoptive parent! We talk about how this path has profoundly impacted not only his own life but also the lives of the many orphaned, abused, and abandoned young people he has helped over the years.
This week we welcome back David Bennett who shares some of the insights written in his recent book, A Voice as Old as Time: Contemplations for Spiritual Transformation
It’s Spring! What kind of Spring are you having? Is it gorgeous weather, blue skies, temps in the 70s, and little puffy white clouds? Or is your Spring filled with rain? It really doesn’t matter. This week, we talk about ways that people we know (including ourselves) take steps to feel upbeat and positive at all times, regardless of what the weather is doing.
In this day and age, it’s very easy for people to develop counterproductive habits that become deeply engrained in our nervous systems and our psyches, to the point where we often feel that we can’t overcome them. In this week’s show, we talk about what to do to overcome them and how you can turn these seeming disadvantages into advantages.
Joel’s back this week in full voice, and he gives us an update with what’s been happening most recently to “Bob” (not his real name), a young pre-teen turned teenager whose story we featured in December 2015. Tune in to hear the happy news!
David Bennett died. Twice. Then he decided to live anyway. He tells his tale to Walt in this week’s show.
