    #SB50: POST GAME ANALYSIS WITH SHERMAN J HOWARD

    in Health

    My father, Sherman J. Howard, joins us tonight with a Super Bowl 50 Post game analysis.  Mr. Howard is the oldest living NFL African American Alumnus.  He played 3 years of college and 5 years of professional footbal for the New York Giants and Cleveland Browns in the late 40's and early 50's.  At 91 years young he is enjoying life free of any signs of Dementia, Alzheimers or CTE.  He'll be giving us his perspective on the game and why the winner made the least mistakes or had the most breaks.


    His new book is available at www.shermanjhoward.com and at Amazon and Barnes and Noble web sites.  A PDF is also available at your host's website:  www.yourholisticlifecoach.com.

    DUCK SYNDROME

    EPISODE #144:

     

     

    What is duck syndrome – and how it has become a toxic part of your life

    Why fighting against it will increase your happiness.

    5 specific ways to stop the syndrome

    WHAT IS IT?

     

    In 2003, Duke jolted academe with a report describing how its female students felt pressure to be “effortlessly perfect”: smart, accomplished, fit, beautiful and popular, all without visible effort. At Stanford, it’s called the Duck Syndrome. A duck appears to glide calmly across the water, while beneath the surface it frantically, relentlessly paddles.

     

     

    The perception of a perfect life

    "believes social media is a huge contributor to the misperception among students that peers aren’t also struggling."

     

    It's easy to see how this could contribute to a feeling of loneliness and helplessness.

     

     

     

    WHY I’M THINKING ABOUT DUCKS:

     

    Because Ellie is obsessed.

    Because I have suffered from both sides of effects of duck syndrome

     

    WHY TO FIGHT AGAINST IT:

     

    Inauthentic

    Isolating

    Exhausting

    False and based on lies from our enemy

    Discourages us and discourages others – lifts no one up

    Self-glorifying – when we fall prey to duck syndrome we are focused on impressing others, not necessarily on making an impression in the world

     

    HOW TO STOP THE SYNDROME:

     

    Be honest with your struggle

    Be honest with your struggle

    Let people see your mess

    Live to love and build up others – not yourself

    Acknowledge your hard work (and give yourself periods of rest to glide)

    Change your goals (go against perfectionistic thinking and other people’s opinions / strive to significance, not success)
