Journey of Hope With Rodney Mathers (137)

Welcome!

Addiction is hell. It really is. Because of the roll an addiction can play in a successful parole, probation, or reintegration, I feel like I can't do enough of these shows. I'm constantly on the look out for guests that have a good grip the steps necessary to beat an addiction. 
My guest this week, Jean Day, does a fantastic job discussing addiction and her conversation with me is one that ex-offenders and their loved ones can benefit from.
Be sure and check out Jean Day on YouTube, "I Kicked Heroin Without the Help of Methadone." She also has a fan page on Facebook, "Things I've Learned Along the Way".

Hi Yall,

I've had people tell me over the years that I should not let anyone take my joy from me. What? I would always think, walk in my shoes buddy! However, I've learned over time that they are right. Why shouldn't I be happy? After all, I paid an extremely high price for what I did and it's time to move forward and live in a more positive way.
My guest this week, Dean Roberts has figured out how to help people live in a positive , more grateful way. Dean's book, I'll Fix My Head Before I'm Dead is his take on how to go about doing this. I think he's dead on!
Join me for my interview with Dean Roberts on this week's edition of the show.

Welcome to episode 135!

When someone mentions the big green monster are they talking about envy or jealousy? Turns out it's both! Both can be destructive emotions and are certainly worth taking a look at because they can negatively effect your relationships and other aspects of your life if left unchecked. 
My guest this week, Dr. Josh Gressel, zeros in on envy. Josh and I have a great conversation on how envy can be controlled. 
My friends, don't let envy be a problem in your life! Check out my interview with Dr. Josh Gressel. After the interview check out Josh Gressel's book

Hey There!

My guest this week is author and academic Sara Deutsch. Sara brings an impressive academic background and the authorship of many books to the show this week as she explains how we can tap our creativity. It is her contention, and my belief as well, that the finding our creativity and exercising it can help us to maintain progress in stress reduction, goal setting and accomplishment, and just generally feeling better. 
By the way, everyone is creative. The trick is finding that creativity and using it. Sara tells us how to do this on this week's episode. 
Be sure and take a look at at Sara's books and biographical information. A lot of her materials are Kindle friendly and very lost cost.

Hey Everyone!

As we enter this new year, its a time to contemplate I guess. What we contemplate is up for debate. I have a tendency to reflect more on broader questions than setting goals or stating resolutions because goals and resolutions are a constant, ever evolving exercise with me. So, in that tradition, here's a question for you: What is our purpose?
Now, you can ask that question to 10 different people and get ten different answers, but I think my guest this week might just have the kind of answers that will get you to........well, contemplate the question. My guest is David Gaggin. 
A different kind of show this week but David Gaggin has some very cool information for us on this week's show.

Welcome!

Let's talk jobs this week. It's not always my favorite topic because of the many hurdles ex-offenders have to jump in order to get meaningful employment. I'm not talking about those crap jobs like telephone sales or my favorite - the car wash. ( I got fired from car wash! How does someone get fired from a car wash?)
One alternative is entrepreneurship. Why not? My guest this week, Peter Mehit, is an expert in this area and calls in for chat on how to go about doing this. We had had a nice discussion and I think you will find it informative.
