Learned helplessness is a psychological condition in which a human being or an animal has learned to act or behave helpless in a particular situation, even when it has the power to change its unpleasant or even harmful circumstance. Learned helplessness theory is the view that clinical depression and related mental illnesses result from a perceived absence of control over the outcome of a situation (Seligman, 1975)
Yes I have to go there my degree says so!! So what the heck is this talking about? You know those people that always run out of money, gas,food,etc.
What about all those harrowing emergencies??? Nothing can wait, everything is life or death in that moment yet an hour later or a moment later nothing is wrong as they have moved onto the next person to lay their sob story on to get what they need. Are you dealing with this or people like them, what you surround yourself with will also become your reality. Look at who is currently in your life and why. Is it draining you or beneficial to you. Or are you that person who is constantly in need. This may be a very much needed wake up call.
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.

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

GRADE YOUR LIFE HERE!
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!
When I surrendered, I got RESULTS: BREAKTHROUGH-VISION-CONNECTION-ELEVATION
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?

Adele's life lessons come from her lyrics- all blissful moments of sensual indulgence. Our Top 5 life lessons learned from her lyrics.Don’t Believe Everything You Hear People tend to talk trash. A casual misspoken word can be the spark that turns into a blaze that ruins lives. In “Rumour Has It” Adele expresses her severe distaste for groundless statements with the line, “You've been telling people things that you shouldn’t be.” Although it is not in your power to control what others say, it is fully your decision when it comes to deciding what to believe.Be Cautious Because life is unexpected, it can be prudent to exercise a little bit of caution when it comes to matters of the heart. .Moving On In “Someone Like You,” Sometimes, your best play is to simply accept that, think good thoughts, and move on. Sometimes A Little Rage Is Good When you’re having a hard time moving on, you might need that burst of anger to help you finally see the truth that sets you free. Just like Adele says in “Rolling In The Deep”: “There’s a fire starting in my heart/Reaching a fever pitch, it’s bringing me out the dark/Finally I can see you crystal clear.” Value Your Relationship With Your Kids “Hello” isn’t about an ex lover. It’s about being away from the people who are the most important aspect of your life: your children. In her lyrics, Adele laments over her guilt of being away from her kids. Take Adele’s song as a cautionary tale and always remember to put your kids first.

Shakira is featured on Life Lessons because we think she has something significant to teach others.
As a small girl she was rejected from the school choir and her music teacher told her that her voice sounded like a goat. If someone had said something like this to me I would probably be embarrassed to my core and would take on oath either to never sing again. But garnering the courage to sing infront of crowd in the same trait that was made fun of takes quite a character indeed. You need not fit everywhere: Her parents encouraged her saying “You have a beautiful voice, stick to what you are, don’t sing any less loud than what you think.” VALUE ORIGINALITY! The first two albums failed: Her first two albums Magia and Peligro, which were released in the early 1990s failed to achieve any commercial success. It took till 2006 for the phenomenal song “Hips Don’t Lie”. And in 2010 it was waka waka which has over 700 million views on youtube. What takes for someone to reach such a remarkable success- Persistence, patience, hard work, innovation, passion, belief, hope, dream, dedication. Giving it back Shakira is very well known for her involvement in philanthropic activity and charity work through her concerts. When she was young, her father took her to a local park to see the orphans who lived there and she said to herself ” One day, I am going to help these kids when I become a famous artist!” People have achieved a lot of things and some of them have decided to pay back.
Exclusive life lessons from the world's most popular football player and social media giant Cristiano Ronaldo.
This show is presented by Gracefully-Yours, favorite greeting cards for encouragement and thank you. Visit www.gracefully-yours.com for specials.
Football is the most popular sport in the world. According to statistics, football spectators number 3.5 billion, spanning across Europe, Australia, Asia, Africa and North and South America. It might even be a good bet that football is watched by those living in the polar region.
Among the current generation of football players, Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the most, if not the most, popular. The 30-year old Portuguese athlete was born in Madeira, Portugal, one of the four children of working class parents. Although his early years were full of hardship, Cristiano Ronaldo today is one of the highest paid sportsmen in the world. His rise to success can teach us a thing or two about achieving our dreams.
Find your passion
Passion for what we do certainly matters. Some even consider it as an investment in a chosen career. Although we might not go to the extent of skipping meals like Ronaldo did, passion certainly allows us to bring more of “us” into an endeavor. It makes us more creative, energized, confident and persistent – qualities that contribute positively to the path of success.
Talent + Hard Work = Greatness
Stay fit and healthy
A good mentor can help pave the way to success
