How often do you think about your thinking?  Most likely your thinking on automatic pilot as it is for most people, thoughts just come and go, then on to the next thought.  In my interview with author and thought leader Jane Cull we have an intriguing discussion about her new book entitled “WTF?!… How am I Thinking

Jane states ” As human beings, we live our lives in language.  This is precisely what we do. We are observers living in language.  We construct and create our experiences, worlds, realities in language, thus we are entirely responsible for what we construct or create. In the habitual unconscious thinking that we do, we do not see what we are doing. We are unconscious and unaware of what we are doing in thinking.”

In Attachment Thinking, we generate emotions–attachment thinking is fear-based thinking. We not only generate the emotion of fear, but we also generate anxiety, stress, mistrust, suspicion, jealousy, resentment, frustration, anger, rage, hate, restlessness, agitation impatience, grief, sadness, pain, and depression–we go down the rabbit hole.

In Reflective Thinking, we do not generate all the emotions of Attachment Thinking.  The emotions of Attachment Thinking do not show up because we are not holding onto our thoughts. In fact, in Reflective Thinking, we “become” calm and peaceful. The core emotion is trust.  This kind of trust is not actually an emotion, it is more like a state; an ongoing state and so we ‘become’ and live in this state in which we feel calm and peaceful.

It is not often that one gets hit in succession with nearly two fatal strokes, but that is what happened to Mark Moore my guest on this podcast, and the author of a new book entitled “A Stroke of Faith-A Stroke Survivor’s Story Of A Second Chance At Living A Life of Significance”. 

Mark Moore was a successful CEO of a thriving company that he and his partner founded and was also in apparent great health when his strokes occurred.  Mark’s story is about his triumph over adversity that this event caused in his life.  One day he was fine, then the next day he was lying in a hospital bed in a coma.  He had to learn how to walk, tie his shoes, sign a check and all the normal activities that we all take for granted.

We speak in the podcast about the strains an illness like this takes on the family, but also how this event brought Mark and his wife and children closer together. Mark’s family and the strength they provided him were the single most compelling reasons for his survival and willingness to fight for his life.

Since the stroke, Mark has made almost a complete recovery and has run a marathon on the one-year anniversary of his stroke.  Through his life will never return to his pre-stroke normality, he has now chosen to dedicate his life to philanthropy, his family, educating others about stroke awareness and prevention, and inspiring those who have suffered similar events.

I hope you enjoy this inspiring interview with Mark Moore the author of ” A Stroke of Faith“.  You can learn more about Mark by visiting his website by clicking here.

 

In my recent interview with author Susan David, we had the opportunity to speak about her new book entitled ” Emotional Agility-Get Unstuck, Embrace Change, and Thrive in Work and Life.”   The premise behind Susan work is that if people can learn the techniques of emotional agility, they can master the challenges in life that frequently derail them and create depression and despair.

It is all about navigating our inner world which consists of the negative self-talk, our thoughts, feelings and the habitual patterns that we create in our life that do not serve us from releasing our emotional baggage.  Emotional Agility is an innovative approach to navigating life’s twist and turns with insight and accordingly to our values, rather than our knee-jerk “hooks” in which our thoughts, emotions, and stories drive our behavior.
