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.
What would happen if we took a copy of Joel’s book, The Bench, and left it on the same bench that inspired the book in the first place, in the hope that it might inspire some random passerby to pick it up and read it? Well, we don’t have to speculate on the answer because we’ve already tried it. The result, predictably, was that a Canadian found it and read it, and not surprisingly he was ALSO someone who had tragically lost his son at too young of an age. The Law of Attraction strikes again! And we’ve got the full tale for you.
Today we discuss the role that adversity plays both in our daily lives and in deliberate use and application of the Law of Attraction. Joel tells some stories from his own life where adversity led to unexpected happiness and success.
