THEME: Getting the Most out of Life's Gifts and Circumstances with Antonio J. Webb, M.D.
GUEST INTERVIEW: Dr. Antonio J. Webb
Antonio J. Webb, M.D. is an Orthopedic Surgery Resident, Iraq Combat Veteran, Motivational Speaker and Author of "Overcoming the Odds". His forthcoming book is based on his own life story. The book details the miraculous account of a boy who became more than anyone ever thought possible. From joining the military as a teen to serving eight years in the US Air Force, from war on the streets of Louisiana to war on terrorism in Iraq, the book realistically portrays the heartache and desperate challenges it took to rise above his austere beginnings.
THIS WEEK’S MESSAGE: Whether you like it or not, major events in life happen and then come the circumstances. Samuel Lover, the famed songwriter, composer and novelist, once said “Circumstances are the rulers of the weak; they are but the instruments of the wise.” Getting a good grasp of the role that events and circumstances play in your life is essential to you understanding how to shape more positive outcomes to challenging situations. Achieving this level of consciousness is also essential to you recognizing and valuing the difference between responding versus simply reacting to a circumstance. During the month of November, Life Changing Talk Radio will interview noted authors and interesting personalities who have developed unique approaches to crafting their responses to some of life’s most challenging and perplexing circumstances. Through their knowledge, courage, commitment, faith and determination they have and continue to make a difference not only in their lives but also in the lives of so many others.
Gentle World Cafe host, Suparna Malhotra, talks with Elisa Paloschi, about her film.
Driving with Selvi is a documentary film that tells the story of a remarkable young woman who defies strict patriarchal traditions and escapes a child marriage to become South India’s first female taxi driver.
We first meet 18-year-old Selvi at a girls’ shelter in 2004 - timid, soft-spoken, a fresh runaway from a violent past and the victim of a life set against her.
Over the 10 years filmed, we see a remarkable transformation as Selvi finds her voice and refuses to surrender to societal expectations – learning to drive, starting her own taxi company and working on the front lines of reproductive health education.
Instead of adhering to the patriarchal codes that oppress and restrict women, Selvi’s bold determination defies and challenges them. Will she hold steadfast on her road to economic empowerment? Will she remarry? After being unwanted and abused by her own mother, will she be able to break the vicious cycle of devaluing girls so prevalent in her society?
This character-driven story highlights the challenges that the disempowered female population in India face. While the film offers a glimpse into a world of poverty, prejudice and desperate circumstances, it shatters stereotypes as Selvi redefines herself from victim to survivor.
Through Selvi’s eyes, the audience is taken on an intimate journey, and perhaps even a familiar one, of healing, overcoming obstacles, and fulfilling dreams. Throughout this journey, it is Selvi’s unwavering spirit that shines through. Her refusal to surrender offers inspiration, hope and the clear message that anything is possible.
Parenting is really hard, but it's especially hard if you're the parent of a child with social, emotional, and behavioral challenges. There's so much advice being thrown your way, a lot of it telling you to be more firm, more consistent, and more diligent with the rewards and punishments. If all those sticker charts, time-outs, screaming matches, arguments have you feeling like a lot of parents do -- isolated, frustrated, and desperate -- well, you've found a program that can help. On this program, Dr. Ross Greene -- author of The Explosive Child and originator of the Collaborative Problem Solving (CPS) approach -- helps parents understand challenging behavior and overcome many of the hurdles involved in implementing his model. It's very hard work...and this is a great opportunity to call in, ask questions, get the support you need, and or just listen to other parents or relatives who are dealing with similar real-life issues. The program airs every Monday at 11 am Eastern time from September through May. Sponsored by Dr. Greene's non-profit, Lives in the Balance (www.livesinthebalance.org).
When God reveals such things through His Spirit and His Word, sinners see their desperate situation and cry out, “What must I do? How can I receive God’s forgiveness?” The first answer is, “Repent. Turn from your sin to God.” Now let look at the other side to this, to receive God’s forgiveness, we must obediently believe in the Lord Jesus Christ. Join us for Part 2 of our lesson topic "How Can I Receive God's Forgiveness?" Also visit us at www.uptopministries.org

After the pathetic performance this week by the Giants, I thinks its time to at least explore the possiblity of finding a new Head coach. Does it end there? is Jerry Reese safe? Lets break Down this Giants Team. Also, good news is the Jets didnt lose, better news is that they didnt play at all. I think we all needed a break from the Circus that has become the Jets and their Season. The Knicks and Rangers are in full season mode and there is plenty of baseball to talk about. Anybody have an issue with Clayton Kershaw winning the MVP? No? well thats a touchy subject for me. As always pleanty of A-Rod stories and Yankee Moves to discuss.

This week Jennifer co-creates with Keidi Keating about her life and her newly released book ''The Light'.
"Twenty-two luminaries unconditionally contributed chapters to the book, including bestselling authors such as Neale Donald Walsch, Don Miguel Ruiz, Marci Shimoff, and Barbara Marx Hubbard.
The book manifested soon after I endured a life-stopping spell of depression, desperate to know what my purpose was in this lifetime. Eventually, when I realized I had reached rock bottom, I looked up and asked the Universe for a sign. Less than twenty-four hours later I received an answer, in the pages of a magazine, and this led me on a journey of intense healing. Amazing spiritual teachers began to magically show up in my life, all guiding me to step out of the darkness and shine my Light brighter."
Keidi Keating (taken from Keidi's website).
Together, we discuss aspects of the book, as well as talking about why Keidi decided to write it and her own personal journey. I found this interview to be absolutely fascinating and I'm sure that you will too. Keidi is going to have a regular slot on my show to discuss elements of the book, in the new year. This will be an opportunity for you to call in and ask any questions that come up for you and to have some great feedback. It is a great time to go and get a copy of this book which is life enhancing. We can also share and talk together about the practical implications of using the wisdom held within its pages. I love it, and I am sure you will too.
Listen to Keidi's unique interview with me on Thursday!

Special Tribute to Gloria Gilmore, The significant other of co-host Brian P. Stetten has passed away due to pancreatic cancer. A highly intelligent woman who spent her spare time as an activist and gave highly anti-capitalist rants to the very end. She was highly critical of her fellow humans and desperate to see the population wake up and challenge a system that seems quite irrational until one understands the underlying demands for profits from elite interests and the nature of class consciousness.
A special tribute with a few surprise guests and a discussion of a legacy that needs to be fulfilled. Also, the need for more love in our society....

How do you like the idea of selling your country for a barrel of oil? The keystone pipeline is back on the table just as BHO is getting ready to use the pen to establish executive amnesty for nearly 4.5 million illegals living in America. The "jobs" that are being promissed is a cheap return on the 100s of millions of dollars to be spent on the resettling and supporting of the millions of newly minted residents. Are we that cheap? or that desperate? Tune in.
Join me for a no holds barred review of the events and people that make our world the place it is. Have you been holding it in? Wouldn't you like to put things in place?

We settle in our relationships too because we are scared to be alone and lose the stability a relationship offers. Fear paralyzes people and holds them back. Many people suffer with tremendous amounts of self-doubt and are unable to believe they are good enough. There are always better options out there, but too many people have low self-esteem, which prevents them from realizing this. It’s better to be alone than it is to want to be alone.
Although something may not be what someone really wants, it is likely that it has become a habit and it’s more comfortable to maintain the status quo than to challenge themselves. You have to fight through all the obstacles that lie between where you are and where you want to be.
People settle for mediocrity in many aspects of their lives on a daily basis. We accept jobs we hate, we deal with friends who let us down and we let our significant others get away with sh*t. Why do people choose to be complacent instead of moving where there are better opportunities? Life is just one big cost-benefit analysis; we make decisions by comparing the outcomes of different courses of actions. People assume that certain actions should not be taken unless the benefits outweigh the costs. It is the fundamental evaluation behind practically every decision a person will make in his or her life.
People are terrified of change, failure and taking risks. This is one of the main reasons people settle in life. It’s not about unrealistic goals or perfection. It is about changing the things you can to be happy, not simply drifting along in life and complaining. It is far easier to settle than it is to leave our comfort zone. We create endless excuses to justify our complacency and all that it will result in is our looking back with regret and a slightly bruised ego, wishing we hadn’t settled.
