SORT BY Relevancy
"Racism is as American as apple pie" is the highly publicized quote from student activist Stokely Carmichael (later Kwame Toure) during the 1960s protest movement. As supporters of white police officer Darren Wilson collect money for his defense in the killing of unarmed black teen Michael Brown of Ferguson, Missouri, members of a white supremist hate group send out a message referring to Michael Brown as a "N-----r Thug" and praise the work of the Ferguson police department in killing him. For them, Darren Wilson is a hero. Racial hatred is as American as apple pie. But is it also a reflection of serious mental instability, an irrational fear that could prompt people to commit violent acts? Is it a condition to be isolated and treated, the way one treats those who suffer from schizoprenia or dementia, or any other mental illness that produces delusional thinking? Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. referred to the racist whites that threatened his life as "our sick white brethren." Those who are treated badly by sick racists often spend a lot of time trying to convince themselves that they are worthy of respect, rather than recognizing that the illness is within those who do not know how to respect others. A healthy mind has the capacity to recognize the good in others. A sick mind does not. Would you vote someone into office who suffered from paranoid schizophrenia and might become a serial killer? Then why allow those with the mental illness of racism to continue to get elected as mayors, appointed as police chiefs, or sit in courtrooms as judges? Should racism be identified and treated like a mental illness? If so, shouldn't the responsibility for removing mentally sick people from positions of authority rest on those who are mentally well?
It can feel like slippery territory. It's very difficult for a coach to know how to help a client who is suffering from mental illness. For that matter it can be difficult to even know for sure if a client is struggling with mental illness of what they are going through is "normal". They say there are very clear lines between coaching and therapy, and there is no place those lines are suppose to be more defined than around mental illness, and yet, when you're in it with a client, it can be anything but clear.
Everyone will be talking about Robin Williams today, so we don't need to. However, his passing has opened a window to talk about mental illness in the greater consciousness in a way we haven't had before. So, are going to discuss how to gracefully do that dance and those conversations with clients.

Our guests will be Record reporters Christopher Maag, who covers transportation for the paper and John Cichowski, whose "Road Warrior" column covers all things commuting.
Maag will talk about his story "Bus Terminal Blues" on the run-down conditions at the mid-town terminal and the debate over how to renovate or replace the facility
Cichowski will talk about his whimsical column on the statue outside the terminal that memorializes Ralph Kramden, the fictional bus driver from the classic television comedy "The Honeymooners."

Today, having a loved one live with a terminal diagnosis for an extended period of time is fast replacing sudden and unexpected death as the norm. Consider, that two thirds of those who are diagnosed with cancer currently have a five-year survival rate. Family is truly key when terminal illness will end in death.
SHOW NOTES: This is an episode that I feel compelled to do! Our MYTH WARRIORS™ series is about targeting ideas to begin the assessment of whether they are credible or not. This episode topic is, “We All Need Someone To Believe In Us.”
No. We don’t need it. This is a myth.
Definition of need:
“: a situation in which someone or something must do or have something
: something that a person must have : something that is needed in order to live or succeed or be happy
: a strong feeling that you must have or do something”
Need. (n.d.). Retrieved August 4, 2014, from http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/need
We may want someone to believe in us. A want is not a need. The challenge is that if we convince ourselves of the lie (myth) that we need someone to believe in us and we don’t have anyone who does; we argue that we have to give up on life. No one believes in us. We don’t believe in ourselves. We engage in self-destructive behavior. We sabotage ourselves. We befriend bitterness, regret and anger. We waste each day mired in self-pity.
Of course, it is wonderful if someone believes in you! If many people believe in you, congratulations! You are very fortunate! Yet, that is not a guarantee of any specific outcome (e.g., success, wealth, etc.). It is also not an entitlement. Just because your grandfather, sister, best friend and 7th grade teacher believe in you and have told you that you are special and super-awesome, does not mean that the rest of the world shares that same sentiment. We are all judged as adults as individuals.
Potential is just that. It is not purpose and it is not rewarded. We all have potential. The issue with this show topic is that [...]

SHOW NOTES: In our HELP! SITUATION SPOTLIGHT™ series, we shine the light on challenges that community members have shared. This episode is, “I am being subjected to ‘The Silent Treatment’ from someone. How do I handle it?”
This is a challenging subject as many of us would prefer to remain silent about “the silent treatment” (ouch). Yet, we cannot do so. We prefer our aggression served out loud so that we are able to hear it. When we are confronted with aggression masquerading as innocent activity, it is slithery and elusive. When exactly did it start? Are we imagining it? Is silence really deafening or are we simply too sensitive?
In this show we discuss ‘the silent treatment’ at work and in our personal lives. These two questions will be our guides irrespective of the setting.
1) How much are you invested in the person?
2) How much are you invested In the relationship?
What is ‘the silent treatment’? Maybe I am simply imagining it? Or, perhaps I am confused and mistake a quiet person for an act of aggression?
The silent treatment is a form of aggression. It is not your imagination. It is not you being too sensitive. It is not that some people are quiet (as quiet people are not entirely silent, they simply speak less loudly and less often).
Specifically, this behavior is passive-aggression. “Passive aggression is aggression by “not doing” — and deliberately not communicating or giving someone the “silent treatment” is one of the more common forms of it. And passive-aggression can be one tool in an arsenal of weapons that people use to manipulate and/or a

Thursday night at 9 PM Eastern, Jim Schmiedeberg, one of the hosts of Blueshirt Underground Radio and The Big Blue Gang Green Power Hour, will host a roundtable discussion on mental illness.
Joined by several friends with different perspectives, we'll share our stories, our hardships, our triumphs, and how we live with the pain of depression, anxiety, panic, addiction, and other mental illnesses. The tragic death of actor/comedian Robin Williams two weeks ago has really hit home with anyone suffering from mental illness, and hopefully this new show will help bring awareness to people on the subject, We want people to know there are many out there just like you, and that there is hope for all of us.
Listening to this show isn't going to cure whatever ails you, but hopefully by bringing us all together, and maybe providing a little laughter along the way, and listening to stories from people that may sound a lot like yours, will help you realize you're not alone.

Want to Take Your Life to the Next Level? Teach It to Someone…
Today @ 1 pm (CST) on Healthy Mind & Body radio… we’re going to be talking NEXT LEVEL STUFF!!!
So what does Next Level really mean? It means different things to different people but in general, it means MORE TIME, MORE MONEY, MORE FUN, and BETTER CONDITIONS with LESS WORK. Do any of those things sound good to you?
Recently, I was working with a client of mine and we were talking about improving his business. The first thing I noticed is he didn’t really know how he does what he does. So we spent a couple of hours, chunking down HOW, WHEN, WHERE and with WHOM he does what he does and we put it into a format so he can TEACH IT TO OTHERS.
What would happen if you could ACTUALLY KNOW how you do what you do?
One thing that might happen is that you could KNOW WHAT NEEDS TO BE IMPROVED
TEACHING is the easiest way to learn if you really know what you’re talking about or are you just going through the same motions and NOT GETTING RESULTS.
Join me today @ 1pm (CST) and let’s talk about TAKING YOUR LIFE TO THE NEXT LEVEL
