What are the 13 things "mentally strong" people don't do?

Glenn opened the radio program this morning by sharing an article he found over the weekend that outlines 13 things “mentally strong” people don’t do. The story, written by psychotherapist and adjunct college psychology instructor Amy Morin, explains “mentally strong people have healthy habits. They manage their emotions, thoughts, and behaviors in ways that set them up for success in life.” As Glenn explained, this list highlights behavior that is “exactly the opposite” of what our President and our government is now promoting.

“I read an article this weekend about the 13 things that mentally strong people avoid,” Glenn said. “And as I'm reading this, I'm thinking to myself: This is exactly the opposite of what our President and what our country is promoting now.”

Below is an overview of the list (read the full article HERE):

  1. They don’t waste time feeling sorry for themselves
  2. They don’t give away their power
  3. They don’t shy away from change
  4. They don’t waste energy on things they can’t control
  5. They don’t worry about pleasing everyone
  6. They don’t fear taking calculated risks
  7. They don’t dwell on the past
  8. They don’t make the same mistakes over and over
  9. They don’t resent other people’s success
  10. They don’t give up after the first failure
  11. They don’t fear alone time
  12. They don’t feel the world owes them anything
  13. They don’t expect immediate results

“I contend our society and our President doesn't teach any of these things. Nothing,” Glenn said. “Never expect immediate results. We're a fast food society… Never give up after failure. That's what TARP is all about. I like this one. Resent other people’s successes. Never do that. Well, that's all this is about. Find joy for the other people. We don't ever hear that… We are too busy tearing people down to ever learn what they did… Never make the same mistake twice. We've just made it almost 18 trillion times. Don't dwell on the past. Are you kidding me? That's all we do. It was Bush's fault. It was Bush's fault. It was Bush's fault… Do you think we're doing any of that? Do you think we're teaching any of that?”

While Glenn and Pat insisted that society did value these traits at one point in time, Stu pointed out that there is a level of individual responsibility involved when it comes to instilling these values in the next generation.

“I read this and I wrote them down in my journal because I want to make sure that I live these every day, and I want to make sure my kids are living those every day,” Glenn said. “And as I'm writing them down I'm like, society doesn't teach any of this. This is why we're all screwed up. You can't fix a country if nobody believes in that. If everybody is following the leader, and the leader is not telling you do this. You can't fix the society.”

“Because these are characteristics of people who are successful, right? Well, that shows you that obviously when someone is successful, they are maybe the exception to the average person,” Stu countered. “And this is why society can teach the opposite because it's not easy to do those things. And so you're preaching to the majority of people who don't want to do those things.”

“Did you grow up with those,” Glenn asked.

“I mean, yeah. That's the standard operating procedure,” Stu said of his upbringing. “When you're talking about society, I don't know it really goes household to household. That's why we were talking about individual responsibility because even today, when these things aren't being taught at all by society, you can still teach them.”

Ultimately, Glenn said he plans to implement this mentality into his life going forward, and it is up to others to decide if they would like to do the same.

“I'm going back to, we had a talk last night at the dinner table about you know, I want to be a better man than I am today. I think I can up my game a great deal. Go ahead,” Glenn concluded. “We just need to start living basic principles again.”

Countless leaders on the left are now arguing that removing President Donald Trump from office won't be enough — they're now calling for the president's "cult-like" supporters to be "deprogrammed." And it's not just fringe politicians.

During an appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher" last week, former NBC anchor Katie Couric said, "The question is, how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump."

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi questioned whether the nation needs "a 9/11-type commission" to determine whether President Trump was colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin "the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol." Clinton also made sure to include her favorite "deplorables" in her unsubstantiated conspiracy theory:

"But we now know that not just [Trump] but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy," Clinton said to Pelosi.

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and New York Times Magazine's Nikole Hannah-Jones agreed that there is a need for "millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans" to be deprogrammed and punished, during an MSNBC interview last week.

Now, a story from the Washington Post is also preaching that narrative and even added that we need more restrictions for conservatives on social media and in the broadcast industry.

"So now we have to be deprogrammed? We've heard this over and over and over and over again, for months," said Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday. He read through the shocking details of the Washington Post op-ed and discussed the extraordinary dangers of the latest anti-conservative movement in America.

As calls for censorship and restrictions against conservative voices get louder, Glenn Beck said he feels an "awesome responsibility" to speak, not the words he'd personally like to say, but those he believes the Lord would want him to share.

"It's an awesome responsibility, and one that I am not worthy of," Glenn said. "I want to say ... what He wants me to say. And I have to listen very carefully, because I feel the same way you do. But that will get us nowhere."

Glenn said it's time for Americans who are awake — not woke — to come together, no matter which side of the political aisle you're on, and stand with the truth.

"We are the Alamo, we will stand. But we desperately, desperately need you," Glenn said. "We need the people who are awake — not woke — awake. You may disagree with us. We are your allies, not your enemies. And if you will not stand with us in our hour of need, there will be no one left to stand with you in your hour of need. We must all come together, anyone who is awake."

The incoming Biden administration plans to waste no time in overturning much of the progress achieved by President Donald Trump.

On his radio program Monday, Glenn Beck ran through 10 executive orders President Joe Biden plans to announce on "day one" of his time in office — including rejoining the Paris climate accord, canceling the Keystone pipeline, mask mandates on federal land and during interstate travel, and a proposed federal minimum wage of $15 an hour.

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.
