JumpStart - Getting Slapped

JumpStart - Getting Slapped

December 1, 2021

Did you know that long before he got into martial arts, Bruce Lee was a childhood movie star?

Not only that, Bruce Lee was a street thug who walked around picking fights who only got into martial arts after taking on some victims who were strong enough to fight back.

Part of Lee’s training was a super-close form of fighting where combatants square off just inches from one other and attempt to slap one another while also trying to block their opponent's slaps.

It was during this training that Bruce Lee learned the most vital lesson of his life.

Do you feel like you’re getting slapped down by life?

In this JumpStart, I’ll teach you how to deal with life’s slaps so that they become less frequent and also hurt less.

Here’s a hint: when you put a “d” in front of “anger”, you get DANGER!

JumpStart - Rewind

JumpStart - Rewind

November 30, 2021

There’s a wonderful moment in Hamilton, where the Skyler sisters sing a song, and in the middle, they shout “rewind” and the stage itself slowly spins like a record album in reverse.

The characters all end up momentarily back in the past where they relive a previous scene from the musical but with a very different outcome.

This scene is a powerful reminder that we all have things we’ve done in the past we’d like to revisit -- sometimes to enjoy but more often in a desire to correct something we’ve done.

Wayne Dyer put it so well when he said “Life doesn’t come with a rewind button” and if that’s the case, we can only make the past better by making the present the best it can be.

Here’s how…

JumpStart - Behavioral Economics

JumpStart - Behavioral Economics

November 29, 2021

Have you ever wondered why it’s so hard to be grateful but it’s so easy to complain?

It has to do with Behavioral Economics which states that human beings value loss more than gain.

It’s a weird quirk we all have and you see it easily in kids.

A child will totally ignore an old, broken toy but as soon as you attempt to throw it out the child has a fit promising to play with the toy every day.

This is why we adults struggle to appreciate what we have and that means OURSELVES.

Learning that we all have this tendency to diminish gain and amplify loss can help us overcome it so that we begin to live a life of gratitude rather than discontent…

JumpStart - Complaint Free Wednesday

November 24, 2021

Twice now at my request, U.S. congressional representatives have put forth bills to designate the day before Thanksgiving “Complaint Free Wednesday.”

And in both cases, not one additional member of congress supported the bill.

Why?

Find out in this JumpStart as we all try and go just one day without complaining.

Today is “Complaint Free Wednesday”, the day before our national day of giving thanks so let’s all do our best today to not complain.

Who’s with me?

JumpStart - For Giving

JumpStart - For Giving

November 24, 2021

Wayne Dyer wisely pointed out that “forgiving” should be two words because forgiveness is “for giving.”

Forgiveness is a vital step toward health and happiness and yet forgiveness is often misunderstood.

Learn to more easily forgive yourself and others when you remember that forgiveness:

*     Is an internal practice (not external)

*     Forgiveness is a vitamin (not a vaccine)

*     Forgiveness is for us (not the other person)

Discover how forgiving others is often the best way to go to sleep and wake up feeling happy and refreshed…

November 18, 2021

My daughter and I were recently at Universal Studios in Orlando and, WOW, it’s Harry Potter everywhere!

The number one thing you see are magic wands for sale.

Not being a big H.P. fan, I didn’t realize all the backstory behind the wands and how to select one but we purchased wands for both my daughter and son-in-law.

Wouldn’t it be cool if you had a magic wand?

What would you do with it?
What would you change?

JumpStart - Landing On Top

JumpStart - Landing On Top

November 17, 2021

I once heard a quote from someone that said, “Anyone on top didn’t just land there.”

It was an important reminder that success in any area of our life takes effort, focus, and breaking the rules.

In biographies of Ron Howard, Lucille Ball, and Will Smith I’ve seen these same traits:

  • Hard work
  • Focus
  • Break the Rules

You probably didn’t know that Lucy was responsible for bringing us one of the greatest science fiction franchises in history.

Which one?
Hear that story and more in this JumpStart…

JumpStart - Words of Comfort

JumpStart - Words of Comfort

November 11, 2021

I was thinking the other day about times I’ve sought comfort from other people when I’ve felt sad, lonely, unhappy, or even depressed and I see that certain words can make me feel comforted.

And the words I’m thinking of are not the typical Toxically Positive, “You’re going to be fine,” or “It’ll all work out for the best,” or even “God has his plan, so don’t worry.”

No. In fact, such untethered optimism has been shown to make people feel worse.

So, what you can you say to yourself and other people that will actually make you feel better?

Six little words you’ll learn in this JumpStart…

JumpStart - Problems

JumpStart - Problems

November 10, 2021

I’ve gotten hooked lately on celebrity bios.

Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve read the life stories of George Carlin, Ron and Clint Howard, Johnny Carson, and Jerry Lewis.

Even before social media, the rich and famous were presented as being care-free and above life’s problems leaving us all aspiring to be like them, and yet they all experienced trauma, pain, and tons of problems -- just like you and me.

We tend to amplify our own problems and diminish other people’s problems to make ourselves feel unique, but the cost of such thinking is pain and suffering.

Discover in this JumpStart how to diminish your problems and understand that you’re, well, just one of us…
