Joker - Men and Mental Health - No Laughing Matter

The Joker movie and the deeper message it holds for men.

October 31, 2019 by Sharif H Joynson

The tears welling up in my eyes as I left the movie theatre came as a big surprise to me. Not just because Joker had managed to produce tears of deep sadness instead of tears of laughter, but because of how unappealing I found the movie trailer when I first saw it some months back.

I had come to watch this film only to see what the fuss was about. What I wasn’t expecting was to discover a piece of cinema that tapped into some of my own personal grief, and what I also believe to be the collective grief of many other men.

The steady current of anger, sadness, self-hatred and loneliness that ran deep below the surface of my teenage years – which were punctuated by two nervous breakdowns – had a certain color and smell to it. Tones which somehow, director Todd Phillips managed to capture perfectly through the use of certain camera angles and soundtrack...

Do this, take control of your mind.. Dr. Joe Dispenza

I came across this post in Dr. Joe Dispenza facebook group and thought I'd share it. Enjoy.
 
 
 
If you keep firing and wiring those networks in your brain, the hardware eventually becomes the software program and making choices that are in alignment with your future becomes more automatic. When you do it enough times, as we walk as our future self this behavior becomes the habit of the new self. This is how we create new habits of thought and behavior. Then one day you naturally walk from your front door to your car as that future person—not as the unconscious programs that you normally live by.
One of the other major hurdles in this process of becoming is to teach your body to emotionally feel your future. The more you can feel the emotions of your future, the less likely you will be to live in lack and separation, because the longer we condition our body into the emotions of our future, the more we feel like that future has already happened. If you felt...

3 short tips from Tony Robbins

Mind + Spirit

What is a belief? It's a feeling of certainty about what something means. Beliefs create the maps that guide us toward our goals and give us the power to take action. But in the same way that they can drive us forward to the lives we want to live, they can also create obstacles in our path and cause us to miss out on the things we want most. By focusing the power of your beliefs, you can turn your dreams into reality.

Adopt empowering beliefs.

Our beliefs come from 5 places: our environment or circumstances, powerful life events, our knowledge, past results and future vision. Free yourself from the beliefs that limit positive action and prevent you from reaching your potential. Learn how to turn your negatives into positives with these empowering beliefs.

Live in the present – and in a beautiful state.

Once you’ve learned how to break your negative state and adopt empowering, positive beliefs, the next challenge is to maintain that state....

5 Questions to Reach the Next Level of Your Personal Evolution

What happens when you imagine being at the next level of your work or business?

What does the next level of your personal evolution look like? How do you feel?

Like many people, you may strive toward big dreams and a more desirable future. You may have started the year with new resolutions and new goals (or still working on the old ones).

To achieve that, you are required to improve, evolve, change – becoming a better version of yourself.

Let’s face it. We can’t face the new year with the same old self and expect a better outcome. And according to Dr. Marshall Goldsmith (author of What Got You Here Won’t Get You There), factors that brought us success and results in the past cannot help us in the next level. A new level will require new sets of strategy, skills, knowledge, tools, plans, resources, etc. It may even require a new shift in paradigm and mindset.

It’s common to see many of my clients who do not know how or where to begin the change. They...

Are your HABITS of thinking supporting or sabotaging your success?

The average person has up to 70,000 Habitual thoughts per day...

We interact with roughly three new people every day (each of which has up to 70,000 Habitual thoughts per day).

Moreover... Many spend roughly 7-hours browsing the Internet visiting 100's of webpages and interacting with around 600 other humans indirectly (each of which has the same amount of Habitual  thoughts per day).

This happens across digital devices, applications, social networks, messaging apps, and all of these are being used at the same time.

Internally this drives people crazy. People don't realize these habits have become major Habit that controls their thinking.

Why are these people neurotically wired in to a Habit of echoing, liking and sharing the same useless information?

What's the purpose of it all?

Ask these people and you'll quickly find out: They don't know.    I am here to explain to you that it starts with your Habits of thinking.

LEARN THAT YOU ARE MORE POWERFUL THAN YOU'VE BEEN TAUGHT.

CLICK BELOW 

When we align our subconscious programming with our conscious desires, we become the masters of our fates rather than the “victims” of our programs. Historically, it has been a tedious and time-consuming process to effect changes in limiting or sabotaging subconscious programming. Fortunately, a new variety of rapid and efficient reprogramming processes are available to rewrite limiting programs, such as those we acquire in our first 7 years of existence.

From the perspective of “new-edge” science, the character of an individual’s aging is primarily a reflection of their subconscious beliefs and not their genetic history. As discussed in The Biology of Belief, the EEG activity of the brain through the first six years of life reveals that a child’s mind is primarily engaged in a hypnotic trance. Consequently, whatever the child experiences or learns during this critical period of development is directly downloaded into the sub-...
