    Values Based Leadership

    in Relationships

    Dr. Mark H. Anshel is professor emeritus at Middle Tennessee State University in Murfreesboro, Tennessee (USA). Dr. Anshel received a Bachelor of Science degree in education from Illinois State University, a Master of Arts degree from McGill University (Montreal) and a Ph.D. from Florida State University (Ph.D.) in performance psychology. Dr. Anshel has 140 research articles published in scientific journals, and numerous books and book chapters in the areas of sport psychology, exercise psychology, and coping with stress. His books include Applied Health Fitness Psychology, Applied Exercise Psychology: A Practitioner’s Guide to Improving Client Health and Fitness (2006), and Sport Psychology: From Theory to Practice (5th ed.). Dr. Anshel has worked as a consultant for the Murfreesboro Police Department for six years in the areas of wellness and stress management. In more recent years of his career Dr. Anshel has developed, validated (in several journal publications), and authored research articles and book chapters on the Disconnected Values Model. The model posits that people are motivated to change their unhealthy habits when they identify an inconsistency, or “disconnect,” between their unhealthy actions and their values (e.g., health, family, faith, integrity, happiness, among others). Behavior change is more likely when the long-term consequences of maintaining unhealthy habits – maintaining the disconnect – are acknowledged and viewed as unacceptable.

    His work with skilled athletes, law enforcement, and highly successful corporate clients over the years indicated a clear need to reexamine our culture’s tendency to recognize success without acknowledging, even celebrating, failure as an integral part of achievement and success. To winners, failure is a gift.

    Contemplating Our Core Values

    in Spirituality

    This week on the Cosmic Citizen we will be discussing core values in the context of The Urantia Book's teachings.  One of the core values that emerged from our shows on bullying was the idea of being an upstander rather than a bystander. Being an upstander means valuing courage. Courage is a core value. Truth, beauty and goodness are also three foundational values frequently expounded upon in The Urantia Book and love is at their core. Consider the following:

    (2:7.12) Truth is coherent, beauty attractive, goodness stabilizing. And when these values of that which is real are co-ordinated in personality experience, the result is a high order of love conditioned by wisdom and qualified by loyalty.

    Values are the fabric of reality, consider these statements:

    (5:4.2) Sooner or later, God is destined to be comprehended as the reality of values, the substance of meanings, and the life of truth.

    (7:1.3) Spiritual values and spirit forces are real. From the viewpoint of personality, spirit is the soul of creation; matter is the shadowy physical body.

    (100:3.5) Values are not conceptual illusions; they are real, but always they depend on the fact of relationships. Values are always both actual and potential—not what was, but what is and is to be.

    Our values are, in fact, powerful drivers of how we think and behave. Ultimately we focus on and create what we value. In the next few weeks we will feature guests who will discuss values and how they effect us and our relationships. 

    Jesus taught that values manifest as fruits of the divine spirit: loving service, unselfish devotion, courageous loyalty, sincere fairness, enlightened honesty, undying hope, confiding trust, merciful ministry, unfailing goodness, forgiving tolerance, and enduring peace.

  • The Price of War and The Values it Destroys

    in Self Help

    Our military has been fighting for the last 10 years and the burden they are shouldering is unlike anything we have seen before. The political class who voted for these wars have been unable or unwilling to get our troops the care they deserve. This has been a tragedy of epic proportions for the people who have riskecd their lives to serve their nation and depend on treatment when they return.

    We will be talking about 2 articles in particular, the first one that deals with a Marine unit that has suffered numerous suicides since the conclusion of their deployment, http://www.nytimes.com/2015/09/20/us/marine-battalion-veterans-scarred-by-suicides-turn-to-one-another-for-help.html as well as the conflicts in Afghanistan and the scandals involving the sexual abuse of young boys.http://mobile.nytimes.com/2015/09/21/world/asia/us-soldiers-told-to-ignore-afghan-allies-abuse-of-boys.html?_r=0

    We hope this show will shed the light of understanding upon the problem within our society when we ask young men and women to go to war.  

    There is great book that deals with this subject at length if you want to know more: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1250056020?creativeASIN=1250056020&linkCode=w00&linkId=UTSGLZNHUIGRBNGG&ref_=as_sl_pc_qf_sp_asin_til&tag=ejerbajapeso-20

    Chicago: Gun accessibility and declining values

    Questions to consider:

    Violence has the potential of touching everyone should laws be change or made stricter to keep the innocent safe?

    Does love sometimes mean making the tough choice of holding friends and family members accountable for their bad decisions?


    “Our thoughts and prayers are not enough deaths by guns are too routine our response and reporting routine”
