S3:E30. The One Who Balances Strategy With Strength

October 23, 2022

"What the research shows is that people who act as though they're self-disciplined actually have found a good strategy.  That's more important than any personal strength.  Psychologists have been able to teach children who didn't show self-discipline, who didn't show an ability to delay gratification have been able to teach them strategies that allowed them to do that and then they acquire that knowledge. Oh yeah, I can do that. Oh yeah, I found now the strategy. And it changes everything."  - Dr. John Tholen, Retired Clinical Psychologist and Author

Highlights: 

• "The greatest power we have is to change how we feel and what we do"

• "Helplessness and hopelessness doesn't help anyone"

• "Find a way to talk about the ways we're alike rather than the ways we are different"

I believe life speaks to us in different ways.  Many of us listen, but don't know how or where to begin. As someone who has crossed the bridge between life and death, I say simply begin where you are now and get busy living.

About Me:

I've been seeking answers to some of life's most perplexing questions my entire life.  In 2014 I was diagnosed with Stage 3 Cancer, and ever since, I realized my calling existed outside of what I knew to be familiar.  As a Board Certified Wellness Coach, #1 Best-selling Author, and Syndicated Columnist, my job is to ask the deep questions of those trying to make sense of their place in this fractured world. I created this podcast as a home for survivors like myself, and those who yearn to build resilience in their mindset and live their best life.
