    The Uncertainty Factor & Limiting Expectations Course

    in Motivation

    There will always be uncertainty in life, and especially when you start breaking out of the mould of who you are now to become who you should be. Things like fear, failure, rejection, and disappointment are all going to come knocking at your door. So what should you do? Throw in the towel now, before you have even gotten started?


    No! There is only one way to overcome uncertainty, and that is have your mind, heart, and soul laser-focused on becoming what your creator put you here to do. When you do that, no force on Earth can stop you! 


    If I asked you right now if you are ready to go out and start living the way you should be, what would you say? I suspect that, at this point in the book, you might say yes. Yes, you are probably getting more and more hopeful about your future and excited that you can actually overcome your current circumstances. And that is fantastic!


    But what if I asked you if you if you were ready to proclaim your expectations of yourself to the entire world? Would you say yes to that? Most people will probably be a little, or even a lot, more hesitant about doing that. And that is completely understandable. 


    It can be hard to proclaim that you have high expectations for yourself, because people are going to hold you to them. Am I right?


    So I am going to make it easy on you. Instead of asking you to tell the world what you expect of yourself, I want you to just tell yourself. Using the seven statements below as guide, create your own high expectations for yourself, and them read them daily.

    There are no magic formulas for effective leadership, but certain abilities help one to deal with and overcome situations of extreme uncertainty.


    "If the mind is to survive this constant battle with the unexpected, two qualities are indispensable: first, an intellect that even in this moment of intense darkness retains some trace of the inner light that will lead to truth, and second, the courage to go where that faint light leads." —Carl von Clausewitz

    It's Inevitable! Defining Certainty and Uncertainty for Future Scenarios

    in Technology

    We look at a lot of scenarios for what might happen in the future -- cool technological developments, major advances in science, new evolutionary developments for humans and for other species on this planet -- but are there any future developments that we can say with any certainty will happen?


    Hosts Stephen Gordon and Phil Bowermaster introduce the Inevitablity Scale, a tool for gauging whether a specific future outcome is inevitable. We will take a look at how some future events stack up when measured for inevitability:



    The Next Presidential Election
    The End of the World
    The First Manned Flight to Mars
    The Emergence of Greater-than-Human Artificial Intelligence


    What can we say for sure that we know is going to happen? Tune in and explore.

    The Dr. Pat Show-Talk Radio to Thrive By!

    in Spirituality

    The Dr. Pat Show: Moments in Time with Author Nina Payne.  Set against a backdrop of complex family relationships and friendships, and her beloved brother battling terminal cancer, Moments in Time is as much about grief, heartache, and compassion as it is about the sparks of desire.   Moments in Time is strongly inspired by Payne’s real-life experiences. Having lost her brother, who also happened to be her best friend, in 2012 of cancer and then her father four months later to a broken heart, the book explores the obstacles many of us face and the courage it takes to overcome them.


    The Dr. Pat Show: The Money Anxiety Cure with Author Koorosh Ostowari.
     Uncertainty creates anxiety, and we are engaged in a modern collective anxiety known as “money anxiety disorder.” Money anxiety disorder lies at the heart of so many of the disruptions that occur in our lives, our society, and our world. It can be triggered by events like fluctuations in the marketplace, job loss, employment instability, divorce, or even just struggling to stay on budget.   Like the economy itself, our anxiety about money fluctuates. But we don’t have to be at the mercy of it. We can learn to cope with unpredictable financial times and silence our panic. There is a cure for money anxiety disorder.

    Mindset Mentoring featuring Coach Collard interview by Jasmine Willois, MBA

    in Real Estate

    Coach Collard. Is a real estate investor, coach, trainer, licensed professional and Outback consultant, out of Las Vegas, NV.  He's created a invetor action program called the OUTBACK. The OUTBACK is all about your MINDSET, and creating solutions in the face of uncertainty.


    To learn more about his events...read about Pasha's experience below.


    "I recently made a career change from professional poker player to all things real estate. If any of you who know poker, I used to travel with my brother Antonio Esfandiari "the Magician" to play poker all over the world.  One day, it dawned on me that I needed to set something up for my future, and I realized poker was not the lifestyle for me anymore, and that real estate was probably the most secure and easiest way to building a fortune. Within 6 Months, I went from gambler to real estate investor thanks to Coach Collard. I now have 100k in the bank for only flipping homes with investors, have bought 2 cash flow property's for my family, started a side cash flow project, and generated income from being a real estate agent. I give this credit to Coach Collard for one main reason, He makes you feel empowered and breaks down complicated formulas into simple steps of action. He gave me the confidence to move forward and follow my dreams and take a leap into real estate. That's just what he does! He gives you the tools to follow through to making the right decisions to secure your future!"   - Pasha Esfandiary, Las Vegas 2012

    The Homosexual Activist Movement, A Cultural Blitzkrieg, The Discussion Resumes

    in Politics Conservative

    The extent, breadth and most of all SPEED of the advance of the homosexual activist movement can be compared to the Nazi Advance thru Western Europe in the spring of 1940,  particularly in the fact that its putative opponents are similarly unprepared to resist it.  The Nazi Blitzkrieg relied upon striking deep into the vitals of its enemies rear echlons,  moving rapidly with little regard to flank protection and reinforcing any breakthrough to achieve chaos and disruption in the enemy's rear areas and destroy unit cohension through panic and uncertainty..  These were tactics that had not been seen before and blitzkreig's victims had no answer for it.  


    Today we are witnessing the cultural equivalent of Blitzkieg with the homosexual activist's recent successes in weakening the RFRA in Indiana, and an irresolute defense by Ind governor Mike Pence and others.  Is the analogy too far reaching, wrong as a shorthand description of what is transpiring today, or does it have merit, along with other factors that describe the successes of this baleful movement?


    Join Sarge he substitutes for the inimitable and vacationing Dr. C. Robert Jones as we continue this discussion on tonight's broadcast.

    Steve Ahnael Nobel: Personal Transitions

    in Spirituality

    How can we come to better understand and integrate the dramatic transitions in our lives?  Steve Ahnael Nobel explores insights from his new book Personal Transitions: Beyond the Comfortable into the Real, a fusion of spirituality, myth, story, case studies, practical exercises, visualization and meditation.  The former director of Alternatives in London, a not-for-profit organization with a profoundly powerful impact that he led from 2000-2012, Steve currently coaches and mentors authors, as well as assisting people going through major transitions.  At Alternatives, Steve helped organize over 1300 events in the domains of contemporary spirituality and personal development. 


    Major transitions can include near death experiences, accidents, prison, war, psychological breakdown, and various forms of awakening.  When we follow our hearts and intuition and expand into new adventures, a major transition can result.  Alternatively, through experiencing times of great uncertainty, chaos and crisis, we can usher in a major transition.  Life may make little or no sense when life shifts, but we are invited to gain a new perspective and live from the heart instead od the head.  Transition is part of the growing up process and contains elements of soul and biology. We are here to grow physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. And within the greater context of global awakening, personal transitions are becoming increasingly more common.
