    Teen Talk Tuesday- Learned Helplessness

    in Education

    Learned helplessness occurs when an animal is repeatedly subjected to an aversive stimulus that it cannot escape. Eventually, the animal will stop trying to avoid the stimulus and behave as if it is utterly helpless to change the situation. Even when opportunities to escape are presented, this learned helplessness will prevent any action. The impact of learned helplessness has been demonstrated in a number of different animal species, but its effects can also be seen in people. Consider one often-used example: A child who performs poorly on math tests and assignments will quickly begin to feel that nothing he does will have any effect on his math performance. When later faced with any type of math-related task, he may experience a sense of helplessness.

    Solutions for Learned Helplessness, Shame and Guilt

    in Self Help

    Thursday March 19, 2014@ 1 pm (CST) Healthy Mind & Body radio wishes to set you and your Emotions FREE!!!

    We’re going to be discussing LEARNED HELPLESSNESS, how to recognize it, its causes and some possible solutions. And we’re going to throw in FEAR, GUILT AND SHAME because that’s how it begins… at least for humans.

    For me, there is nothing that is more sad and heart-wrenching to see than a person who is so down that they believe they can’t get up. We all have “our days” where life is tough or some decisions need to be made that are unpleasant.

    Some people through circumstance or behavioral training simply CANNOT or WILL NOT make any decision. THEY HAVE LOST ALL HOPE as a result of this Learned Helplessness.

    How does someone recover from situations like this?  All joking aside, this particular pattern is shows up in my office most often and it not addressed doesn’t seem to go away on it own and can become GENERATIONAL (yes, you can give it to your kids and grandkids).

    If this sounds like you or someone you know… TUNE IN ON THURSDAY and let’s get to the bottom of this so you can get back to what you want to be doing… living your life with HAPPY ABANDON

    What Have You Learned!?

    in Lifestyle


    I carry the lessons that my Granny taught me every day. I use them to dig me out of death traps set for me by others and myself. There are moments when her voice is faint and I need to STOP, tune in and catch my breath. You are invited to take 60 minutes to catch your breath to identify if we’ve been fools or if we’ve taken every opposition and turned them into jewels?

    I was prompted me to stop and gather all of the nuggets I’ve learned over the past year. I learned a few things about myself, some that I loved and some I hated. I realized that I was doing a lot but not really getting a lot done. I wasn’t producing the best results and for me results mean a lot of things (MONEY-FUN-SEX-ROCKnSOUL)

    As I recalibrated myself, I learned that I didn’t need to try so hard to be the business, the brand; coach/speaker/teacher. I AM spiritually all of those things and that trying to be them meant I didn’t actually believe that.

    TIP: You don’t have to try to be anything that GOD has called you to be. Just show up and put on your anointing. It’s not one size fits all. It was made just for you!


    Ask yourself:

    What has life really taught me?
    What lessons have I really learned?
    How have I applied those learned lessons?
    Am I living a remedial life, constantly repeating the same destructive patterns?

    How to Be Happy. Lessons I've learned from a lifetime on the radio.

    in Spirituality

    Smile....Keep Moving Forward...Know Where You Are Going. These are some of the rules radio has taught me, along with the very important lesson; How To Be Happy.  

    All my life I have been looking for the rules for life.  Looking back, I see how I learned some wonderful rules from my radio career - and from guests like Henry Winker who's motto for life has become an anchor for me.

    I've been traveling around with a one woman show called Everything I Need to Know in Life I Learned on The Radio.  This 25 minute show is the bare bones version of that show.  Since YOU inspired this show...I hope you enjoy it.

    Shine On! This Health & Happiness Show aired December 27 2105 on 100.7 WHUD.

    Learned Helplessness - Anthony Walton - Dream Catchers - LP

    in Social Networking

    Department of Education: Enforce the ADA, don't use Higher Education to promote "Learned Helplessness". In the summer of 1982, I was the best student in Organic Chemistry at UC Santa Cruz. A month later I ran, from Tuolumne Meadows, over Vogelsang Pass to Yosemite Valley (29.9 miles in 11 hours). My love of the outdoors caught up with me a year later when I fell 140 feet rock-climbing on July 16, 1983.
    After 24 years of education (I kid you not), I have few friends, a meager social life, no wife or children and poverty. I do not have job skills or the knowledge required to engage in scientific research. I could not survive without disability payments, because I worked with three different disabled student organizations for 24 years: DSS and DRC (at UC Santa Cruz) and DSP&S (at Cabrillo College). All three intentionally subjected me to, Learned Helplessness. I have started a petition to make it so what was done to me will never happen to another person. To access the petition I have started, type the four words, “petition education ada chang.org”, into the search bar of google, bing or yahoo, while using Firefox, Safari, Opera or Chrome. Click on the link that has, “Enforce the ADA,” and take it from there. Join me tonight for an interesting conversation with Anthony Walton on Dream Catchers with Les Pau!
