“I Never Intended to Become a Run-Of-The-Mill Person.”- Barbara Jordan - RADIO SHOW/AUDIO PODCAST: Solutions...with Courtney Anderson! (SwCA) Episode 070 - Originally aired 3/31/2014 9:00 AM - JOYFUL ART OF BUSINESS! series
This episode is part of our JOYFUL ART OF BUSINESS™ series wherein we explore how to combine the positive benefits of our professional endeavors (“business”) with the overall positive emotional return on our efforts (“joy”). Our episode topic is, “I Never Intended to Become a Run-Of-The-Mill Person.” - Barbara Jordan
This quote encapsulates the concept of having some impact on outcomes in the world due to our actions. It addresses the challenge that many of us have even naming our secret goals. For anyone of any background born in any time period to assert to themselves that they will “never” be “run-of-the-mill” (or average) is rare. For them to publicly state that to the world is bold. If they were a person born a gender, color and ethnic background that was not viewed as equal to other groups of people, it would sound foolish to make such proclamations.
The eloquent speaker of the quote, Barbara Jordan, was born in 1936 in Houston, Texas in the USA. As a black female she did not have the legal right to go to school, eat at restaurants, shop, use the restroom, live or [...]
Happiness is a choice! - RADIO SHOW/AUDIO PODCAST: Solutions...with Courtney Anderson! (SwCA) Episode 069 - Originally aired 3/28/2014 9:00 AM - MYTH WARRIORS! series
In the MYTH WARRIORS™ series we are targeting ideas to begin to assess whether they are credible or not. We are warriors fighting to establish clarity between what is accurate and what is simply a myth (or falsehood) in life. In this episode our topic is, “Happiness is a choice!”
What is happiness? What is choice? Do humans have any choice (or free will) or is everything that happens in our lives predestined?
If an individual ascribes their entire life to predestination (or fate for non-theistic perspectives) the framework of determinism precludes the “choice” any emotion (including happiness). If an individual is not able to chose anything in their lives (as it was all determined for them), there is no “choice” for feeling anything (including happiness). This show topic will be a myth from the perspective of those who adhere to predestination.
For those who are not fully committed to some forms of determinism, the possibility of free will (in some capacity) provides the option of choice of emotion. If emotions are able to be elected by individuals, what is the benefit to choosing misery (assuming it to be the opposite of happiness)?
Our culture and [...]
How Do I Stop My Ex From Seeing Our Kids?! - RADIO SHOW/AUDIO PODCAST: Solutions...with Courtney Anderson! (SwCA) Episode 068 - Originally aired 3/27/2014 9:00 AM - LAW LOVER’S LOUNGE series
Our LAW LOVER'S LOUNGE™ series addresses a general overview of some of the most important issues to the general public! I am an attorney and have owned a general practice law firm since 1998 in Texas, USA.
A general practice attorney is similar to a general practice physician in that they address issues that do not require a specialist. They provide a primary level of legal services for commonly occurring legal issues and make referrals to specialists for more complex issues (appeals of cases, rare facts, unusual issues, etc.). We call this series its title because we do love law! Seriously.
This is a lounge because these are general discussions on general legal topic for public information purposes. There is no client relationship created between this show and Attorney Courtney E. Anderson, or The Law Offices of Courtney E. Anderson (Litigation-Mitigation.com). These disclaimers are important. The content in these shows is for general educational purposes and is not the delivery of legal services. This episode is, “How do I stop my ex from seeing our kids?!”
The Short 'Answer' (which you won't like):
If your “ex” has a legal right to the kids, you cannot [...]
"I Am Broke." (Part 2 of 2) - RADIO SHOW/AUDIO PODCAST: Solutions...with Courtney Anderson! (SwCA) Episode 067 - Originally aired 3/26/2014 9:00 AM - FAILURE FLASHBACK!™ series
No one is perfect. We all have walked an individual path to arrive where we are today in life. If you want to know how to get where you want to go, keep walking. Asking another person how they accomplished their goals is not going to give you “the answer” to how to accomplish your goals. It may help motivate you to keep working towards your goals, but you are living a unique life and your path to success is unique for you. You are the expert on your life.
People have shared with me that they found it illuminating and/ or motivating for me to divulge my explicit failures and how I responded. Thus, this new series, FAILURE FLASHBACK!™ is born. I share some of the tools and processes that I have used to face my failures, learn from them, not repeat them and keep walking forward (hopefully) towards future accomplishments. People will say to me, “Easy for you to say…you don’t know how hard it is!” I do. I share my past in the hope that it prevents you from experiencing the same. This episode addresses my failure resulting in, “I am broke.” (Part 2 of 2)
1) How did it happen?
2) How did I respond?
3) What solutions did I deploy?
4) How do I remain vigilant today?
In Part 1 of this episode I shared the shame and fear that [...]
