Here is a recent radio interview from “The Stuph File” at www.peteranthonyholder.com
I truly believe that everybody’s life has a greater purpose–greater than we ourselves have thus far imagined. EVERYBODY at some point in time wonders “Is this all there is?” We get stuck, goals seem elusive, and just when we’re ready to set out on a positive course SOMETHING goes wrong. But once we understand the deeper meaning behind this journey of ours, once we appreciate our own personal journey, we will not only envision our dreams but have the courage to act on those visions.
My recent book “Finding Peace When Your Heart Is in Pieces” guides readers along their journey after some life upheaval. With that in mind, there are many different lines of discussion any interview can take. See below for some ideas.
DO YOU THINK TOO MUCH?
Right this minute over 60 Million Americans have a diagnosis of Anxiety or Depression.
Did you know that OVERTHINKING is a key culprit? Now consider the harried parents of the world, the poor sleepers, the grouchy commuters, the cranky co-workers, the controlling family members, the frantic worriers–YOU GUESSED IT! They are all OVERTHINKERS! We are talking a MAJORITY of people!
Let’s do story segments on how folks can dramatically and quickly improve the quality of their lives, their marriages, their work –even their sleep– by learning simple ways to OVERCOME OVERTHINKING!
I’m Dr. Paul Coleman, psychologist, multi-book author, speaker, occasional stage actor, playwright, and founder of FindingPeaceInYourHeart.com. I help audiences quickly learn how to manage their lives so they can stop feeling down, dreary, and dispirited and instead start living, loving, and laughing
Here are just a few story ideas. I have plenty more–just download my media sheet on overthinking here, or my media sheet on finding peace of mind after a major life upheaval here.
1. How worriers can learn to peacefully co-exist with uncertainty and halt “What if?” thoughts. OVERCOME OVERTHINKING in three steps.
2. How about the schoolteacher I know, a single mom of two kids under four, hectic schedule to be sure. She stops at a GREEN light while taking the kids to daycare because “something didn’t seem right.” Just then a truck from the opposite direction barrels through a red light. She would have been killed if she hadn’t stopped. Despite her hectic life she is NOT an overthinker–and that allowed her to pay attention to her INTUITION. Halt overthinking and your intuition will improve.
3. Is Facebook making you envious or depressed? YES, if you overthink! Five strategies to ensure browsing won’t make you blue!
4. Power struggles? Why every overthinking couple has recurrent “Here we go again!” debates and how to eliminate them! Learn the right way and the wrong way to compromise.
7. How to talk to children about terrorism, shootings, and other scary events. Learn the S-A-F-E approach to effective communication.
8. Many so-called “Tried and true” communication rules don’t really work for couples! Old rules to break and new rules to make!
