Episode 69 and GENERATION RIPE's interview is a revisit with Episode 30 guest: actress, writer, director, producer, and licensed therapist Shelley McLendon. Originally from Long Beach, California, Shelley McLendon has lived in the northwest for over 25 years.  She is known for writing sketch comedy as well as adapting cult movies into staged parodies that are performed to sold-out audiences. Discouraged by the auditions she was being called for, Shelley decided her best bet was to write her own material that would highlight her comedic chops. It was her staged adaptation of the 1989 Patrick Swayze film ROAD HOUSE which she co-wrote with fellow writer Courtenay Hameister back in 2010 that was the catalyst for her production company Bad Reputation Productions. With Bad Reputation Productions, she's become a driving force in Portland's comedy scene. Also a talented comedic actor, she's successfully made the jump into producing and directing other artists. With the opening of The Siren Theater in 2015, she's added a venue to her growing empire.Along with her performing art career, Shelley holds a Master's of Arts in Counseling and is a Licensed Professional Counselor with the State of Oregon.  In addition to private counseling, Shelley has worked with individuals and groups in alcohol/drug recovery, in college counseling centers and in community mental health agencies, and has taught courses in counseling and psychology as an adjunct university instructor.Also on Episode 69 Wendi and Dfernando catch up on things, like Wendi's booster Pfizer vaccine and binging on FX's AMERICAN HORROR STORY: COVEN and the second part of Netflix's TIGER KING documentary series.  On THE RIPE REPORT there's sourdough bread turkey and Christmas time in New York City.  Watch Wendi and Dfernando and their TEAM GENERATION RIPE: Greg Covey, Shelley McLendon and Ponciana Badia on Season 7 Episode 2 of CELEBRITY FAMILY FEUD - now on ABC OnDemand and Hulu and on the GENERATION RIPE website.  Follow us on our Instagram: Wendi McLendon-CoveyDfernando ZarembaGENERATION RIPE... and our guest Shelley McLendon, The Siren Theater & her TwitterRemember to subscribe, rate & leave a review for GENERATION RIPEVisit Dfernando Zaremba's website: dfernandozaremba.com

Discouragement is something each of us faces at some point. We got a review from a listener this week that really impacted us. It reminded us of the “why” behind everything we do, and it reminded us to run with endurance that race that lies before us.  Hebrews 12:1 Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us. We never want to allow discouragement to cause us to give up on what God calls us to, and we don't want that for any of you either. Who knows how many things we have given up on right before the breakthrough, or never started because we felt someone else was doing it better. How about you?  What are you facing right now that is causing you to experience discouragement and what can you do in that place? Will you allow it to break you or allow it to refine you? Maybe you aren't discouraged right now, but you can be used by God to encourage someone that is. We want you to remember, and to know, the God we serve. That He can do immeasurably more than we can ask or imagine. That He wants to give good gifts to His children, and He certainly doesn't want us to stay in discouragement. Look to Him no matter what you face and don't allow discouragement to stop you from running your race well. We hope this helps you in your marriage because we want you to thrive and not just survive!

Or they also claim they need help but have no interest in helping others. He also talks about how a lot of people say the reason the way they are is because of the way others treat them. If you are kind and giving it is going a lot further than always expecting others to do things for you.

SHOW NOTES Good Note: Michal started his entrepreneur journey in 2017 as an author and advertising books. He reached out to his first client to help the client with sales. He brought the book sales from 5 to 100 in the first month. He then realized that he could provide value and continue with his business. Bad Note: After selling one best seller after another, things seemed to be going good. The next book ended up flopping even after trying to revive the book several times. Discouraged by the lack of sales you take the lesson and carry on. Learn to write for the people that you will connect with. Do your market research in coming to that conclusion. Learning from the best: Starting in the self help sector, you quickly realize that it's about learning from others more than making things work by yourself. Learn from a successful self publisher on Amazon. By joining groups with similar interest, things started snowballing. Connecting with people was the one thing he wished he had done sooner. Now he is in the business of teaching others. Practice Makes Progress: Deliberate practice takes energy, time & focus. There are different levels to it. As this is hard to keep up, try practicing in smaller increments to stay sharp and to not burn out. Learn from you critics and your compliments. Keeping the Hat Full: When you have income, you must know how to divide it. Taxes, fixed cost, payroll, reinvestment, etc… Having multiple bank accounts to keep income in order. THE STORY In 2012, Michal read the book titled “The Slight Edge” by Jeff Olson, and he started to turn his life around. In the next nine years, he lost weight, broke over 200 personal fitness records, developed dozens of daily habits, doubled his income, started a book advertising business, liberated his wife from a day job, and published eighteen books sharing how he achieved all of the above. He regularly blogs at ExpandBeyondYourself.com and the story of his life's transformation was featured in the re-release of “The Slight Edge” in 2013.

  Podcast #462 Confidence For When You Feel Different or Just Plain Discouraged We live in a chaotic world filled with conflicting opinions everywhere you turn. In a world that is more connected than ever, we are more divided, more lonely, more isolated and more conflicted internally on standing strong in our own opinions, even when they are unpopular or simply opposed by those closest to us. This podcast goes into depth on how to stay confident in yourself, in your relationships and in your hope for the future when the evidence you have in front of you is that division is pressing and discouragement is around every turn.   In this episode of The Confidence Podcast we're talking about: How to feel confident about the future when the future feels so discouragingCreating connection with others in a world of divisionThe secret to believing that life is different, but still good.   REVIEW OF THE WEEK: Trish Blackwell Confidence Podcast - 5 Stars, A Will NC Trish - you never disappoint. I have been a listener for years, a member of your college, and we worked one-on-one, as well. I am on the edge of a big change at work and needed some extra confidence. I was feeling myself teeter into thinking about staying small instead of taking the risk and chasing my purpose .I needed several hours of you in my ear to straighten my backbone. Thank you for hanging with me all day. It started with the very timely assertive podcast, followed by your entire people pleaser course in the College of Confidence. I knew from our work together that I was beginning to give into other people's comfort and sacrificing my goals and my gifts. I am happy to say that I am forging ahead and will be having a tough, but needed conversation today, unapologetically, I might say, because other people's feelings are not my responsibility! Cheers to being me and being free. Thank you!!!!   THE QUESTION THAT PROMPTED TODAY'S EPISODE: How do we appropriately "mourn"/bid farewell to life before 2020 and then still be filled with hope for life beyond it, beyond now? I keep getting so overwhelmed with feelings of will people always disagree? Will I ever travel again? Will my kids ever see the rest of the world? I know these are all "what ifs" and not at all productive. I also know that covid won't ever fully go away any time soon. So how do I find a peaceful reality affirmation that life is different but still good?   HOW TO STAY ENCOURAGED WHEN THE FUTURE FEELS DISCOURAGING Thank you for this question. I too am having all of the thoughts, and here's how I'm exiting them  from taking unnecessary space in my brain. I encourage myself that of ALL the years of the history of the world, God decided that I was best fit to live HERE, NOW, in 2020, 2021. I want to argue with this, but I trust His sovereignty and that makes me feel capable of standing strong in believing that yes, I AM WELL ABLE to not just survive these years and this transition of culture/life/limitations/pandemic, but to THRIVE in it.  What our new "normal" looks like is going to be different, but I assure you, it will be good. Happiness is something you decide on ahead of time. You arrange your mind to be happy, you don't wait for life's circumstances to arrange themselves for you to be happy The happy brain is the person who experiences a happy life.A happy life doesn't happen because of the way normal looks like, the amount of travel we get to do or the circumstances in our lives. A happy brain is arranged to be happy. So, I can't arrange the future, but I can arrange my brain on how I want to think about the future, how I want to think about the past, and how I want to think about the present. If you're always holding onto what could have been, you'll completely miss what can be.I am determined to fix my focus not on what could have been, but instead on what can be and how I still believe with total crazy faith that the best is yet to come.

Two followers of Jesus don't even recognize their risen Lord as they walk along the road and have conversation with Him. Suddenly, their eyes are opened, and their deep discouragement turns into passion. Similarly, as followers of Jesus, we all at times will experience discouragement and apathy in our own walks with the Lord. What is the remedy to discouragement and spiritual blindness in the life of the believer? Join our Bible study today to find out.

Your quitting - your “resignation” can be a “going-up” experience. Quitting something that you don't care about, or something where you're mediocre, or something that is “killing your soul” can free up your brainpower, your energy, your accumulated wisdom, your passion and your talent - for something where you can WIN. Questions: 1. What should you do if you are dissatisfied with your current situation? 2. Is resigning an act of giving up? 3. What are the three critical things you need to be successful?

The hope of heaven is what puts suffering in context. Because Christian hope tells you that your afflictions are light and momentary compared to the glories in heaven that you are accruing as you trust God through pain. Yes, life is hard. But there is always hope in your hardship!

#478- Growth Mindset When You're Feeling Discouraged In Your Business

Today Caleb Zysk and Jeffrey Eadon talk about growth mindset and how it can keep you going when you're feeling discouraged. At one point earlier in his career Jeff's business had grown to $8,000 a month. Then it collapsed down to $5,000 a month.  Jeff started beating himself up over this perceived failure. He started thinking of himself as stupid and a failure. Those negative thoughts actually started to affect his business even more. The more he held onto his negative mindset, the more his business would suffer. So, ask yourself, if your business is currently stagnant or collapsing, are you the reason for your own failure? Are you the reason your business is on hold? Are you the reason why you're not seeing the success you want? 9 times out of 10, your negative mindset will be the reason your business is being held back. If you don't believe you deserve to be successful, then why would you ever be successful? Coach Caleb went through the Mastermind Academy close to a year ago. He hit $10K rather quickly, but then had a sudden drop to $4K a month. Caleb immediately blamed himself. “I'm not a good entrepreneur.” “I'm not good at making money.” “I'm not good at growing a business.” The more Caleb told himself these negative things, the more he believed them.  The ironic thing is, the Mastermind Academy puts a particularly strong focus on mindset.  Caleb recalled his training and started practicing a growth mindset. He soon found his business rebounding and his income levels reaching $10K a month and more. (Listen to episode #478 and learn how to put a growth mindset to work in your business!)   I've Been There.

It's not unusual to experience discouragement on the road to holiness, especially when we live in a world that is filled with temptations and persecution. With God on our side, nothing the devil can do will ever prevail over us. However, it's the moment we become too discouraged to ask God for help that the devil is waiting for. So how can we prevent this from happening? Today, Fr. Mike explains the root of discouragement in our faith journey, and how to keep leaning on God through that struggle.

Intense Performance / Public Speaking Anxiety, Part 2 of 2 Last week we presented the first half of the session with Michelle Wharton at the Live Therapy workshop on May 16, 2021. Michelle had been struggling with years of intense public speaking anxiety, especially in professional settings. So far, we've commented on the T = Testing and E = Empathy portions of the session. Today, we present the exciting and inspiring conclusion of that session. A = Assessment of Resistance At the end of the moving and tearful empathy phase, we asked Michelle about her goals for the session, which included Not to have to feel this terror at full volume. Not to be stopped from volunteering for things that require public speaking and teaching, and to be able to feel some excitement in my career! After Michelle said she would be willing to press the Magic Button to achieve all these goals instantly, with no effort, we suggested a round of Positive Reframing so we could see what might be lost of she suddenly achieved all these goals. You can click here  to review the Positive Reframing that we did together, as well as Michelle's Emotions table at the end of the Positive Reframing. You can see her goals for each emotion when we used the Magic Dial. The idea is to dial each feeling down to a lower level that would reduce your suffering, while still allowing you to preserve all the awesome things about you! The Positive Reframing is one of the unique aspects of TEAM-CBT. Although we are encouraging the patient to keep the symptoms, the Positive Reframing typically eliminates or drastically reduces the patient's resistance to change, and opens the door to the possibility of rapid recovery. This will be true even if the patient has been struggling with a problem unsuccessfully for years or even decades, as was the case with Michelle. M = Methods We asked Michelle what Negative Thought she wanted to work on first, and she chose #5: “People will think you are selfish and self-preoccupied.” She believed this thought 100%. First, we asked Michelle to identify and explain the cognitive distortions in this thought. As you can see on her Daily Mood Log (LINK), she found all ten distortions. Of course, the most prominent distortion in this thought is Mind-Reading. That's because Michelle thinks she knows how other people will be thinking and feeling about her when they find out about her intense public speaking anxiety. This distortion is nearly always present in any form of social anxiety. I know this from my clinical work and personal experience, since I have personally suffered from at least five forms of social anxiety, including extremely public speaking anxiety, when I was young. You feel absolutely certain that you're flawed and that people will judge you! Then we challenged the Negative Thought, and Michele she was able, with a little help and a couple of role reversal, to crush it. Take a look. (LINK) Here were Michelle's reflections on that portion of the session. First we used the Double Standard and I think that's when I said this to the imaginary friend with the exact same problem: “I think you're being kind of brave.” Then it evolved into Externalization of Voices. Both David and Jill played the negative Michelle and I had a little difficulty talking back to my Negative Self. I connected on a logical level, but didn't yet have the ammunition or determination I need to blow my Negative Thoughts out of the water. David spotted my ambivalence immediately, and suggested that maybe it wasn't something we should work on. Before he made that comment, I didn't even realize that I had mixed feelings about giving up my intensely self-critical thoughts. At that point, I found myself making the decision to fight back and felt myself getting stronger. The next time David (as the Negative Michelle) asked if he could talk to me for a minute I told him he had only 30 seconds to make his point because it was time to back off. I had some hesitation about only using the Counter Attack to defeat the thought but David said he liked the feisty response. Then David and Jill both told me of all the positive feedback that was coming through the chat, and I was given the opportunity to use the Survey Method with a couple of audience members. I think I asked two or three people if they thought I was using up valuable time, since that was one of my painful Negative Thoughts. The both commented that they found the session incredibly helpful and that they could relate to these feelings of anxiety and shame, and that they weren't judging me harshly at all! Here you can see how Michelle challenged thought #9. As you can see, her belief in this thought fell from 100 to 50, and then to 0. Negative Thoughts % Now % After Distortions Positive Thoughts % Belief 5. people will think that you're selfish and self-preoccupied. 100 50 0 AON OG MF DP MAG/MIN ER LABE SS SB In fact, I'm being kind of brave!! 100         My anxiety is very real, and it's good to ask for help. 100         My fear of public speaking is a common and exceptionally worthy problem! 100 You can see Michelle's Emotions table at the end of the session, after she had crushed all of her Negative Thoughts. Emotions % Now % Goal % After Emotions % Now % Goal % After Down 40 5-10 5 Embarrassed, foolish, self-conscious 100 5 0 Anxious, panicky 100 20-30 0 Discouraged 70 0 0 Inferior, inadequate, incompetent 90 25 5 Frustrated, stuck 80 10 0 Lonely 80 0 0 Angry, mad, resentful, annoyed, irritated, upset, furious 60 0 0 After the workshop, Michelle sent us this email. HI David and Jill, I was going to write to you and tell that I would probably be happy to go ahead with the podcast but that I wanted to do a DML on some concerns about judgements as well as concerns about crossing of professional boundaries (worrying that I'm ‘oversharing' with clients). Then, I just so happened to have supervision scheduled with Robyn Blake-Mortimer (another Level 4 therapist in Adelaide - I think she was Robyn Fowler when working in New York) this morning and she suggested we do some TEAM personal work on it. It was incredibly helpful and I've decided that I'd be happy for you to share the podcast, if Jill and Maor give permission. Robyn helped me to see that there was probably (intentional distortion!) a large impact on my life from the fact that my family survived Cycle Tracy (Christmas 1974) despite our house being 99% destroyed. Our lives were hugely affected and I (now) see a strong connection between this and the bed wetting. Which is not to say it changes the ‘ok-ness' of the issue, rather that it helped me to see the amount of cognitive distortions that were in my worries about broadcasting the podcast (that ‘my problems should all be fixed by now'). Another liberating moment for me, thanks again to TEAM. Here's what was left of our house after the Cyclone - just the bathroom where we were. Thank you again. M. This was my response to Michelle: Wow, Michelle, that's fantastic, kudos, I really like the way you've caught the pass and you're running for a touchdown, like a speedy wide receiver (if you follow football.) I really like all of your thinking and plans! Also, something both of you might want to consider is if we might consider turning each session into two consecutive podcasts. People love and are helped the most by live work podcasts. This is not required, and is just a thought. So proud of both of you! Warmly, david Michelle's scores on all the scales on the Brief Mood Survey at the end of the session were zero, and her scores on the Happiness Test soared to 100%. Her ratings of Jill and David on the Empathy and Helpfulness tests were perfect as you can see at this link. Here's what she wrote on the question on “what did you like the least about your session?” "Absolutely nothing!! This was such a gift and I feel so fortunate and incredibly grateful." Here's what she wrote on the question on “what did you like the best about your session?” "Addressing the ambivalence, the Positive Reframing, the warmth from you both, and how it helped me to soften into and accept these feelings." On the audio, you will also hear the amazing follow-up interview we had with Michelle many weeks after this session. Thanks for listening. I hope you learned a ton and were moved emotionally and inspired. Write and let us know what you think! And thanks, too, to Michelle for giving all of us a gift that's worth far more than gold! Rhonda, Jill, Michelle, and David
