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.”

If there is any doubt about the radical agenda in our school systems, this California teacher just put that to bed. She asked to remain anonymous and courageously agreed to join Glenn on radio Wednesday and provided a document all about the mandatory training the teachers in her school district all had to complete.

They are not required to implement the training in actual curriculum but they are encouraged to talk to their kids about it. She asked colleagues what they thought about the training and many said that it was not sitting right with them but maybe it was because they had racist tendencies themselves.

Once again, the media has failed to carry out even the most cursory investigation when it comes to allegations against Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.). But investigative journalist David Steinberg has been piecing together "32 new, verifiable, archived pieces of evidence" that indicate Omar conducted the "most extensive spree of state and federal felonies by an elected congressperson in U.S. history."

Steinberg joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail how the pieces fit together in his latest report available on TheBlaze.com.

"It's over," Steinberg told Glenn. "There's really nothing left. It's all ... the publicly available documentation that anyone would need to be convinced that, for eight years, [Omar] married her brother to commit immigration fraud. And this marriage fraud also was in the service of education fraud/student loan fraud. And along the line, we have evidence, that she filed at least two years of fraudulent tax returns, possibly eight [years]. We have evidence that she perjured herself eight times during her 2017 divorce from this man. And along the way, of course, we know she was living in public housing. We also know she was likely receiving subsidized child care.

"Essentially, almost everything she put her name on for eight years was perjury or fraud. And it all adds up to likely the most extensive spree of state and federal felonies by an elected congressperson in U.S. history. I really have no other way to put it. That's how big this is."

The extreme-left idea that gender is "fluid" is a complete denial of science, according to sex researcher and neuroscientist Dr. Debra Soh.

Dr. Soh joined Glenn Beck on his latest podcast to talk about her new book, "THE END OF GENDER: Debunking the Myths about Sex & Identity in Our Society" and to offer a hard dose of objective truth about gender and sexual orientation based on scientific facts.

She also explained why she had to leave academia to be able to speak freely about sex and identity, and how — despite being a liberal — the far-left is actively trying to cancel her for saying there are biological differences between men and women.

In February 2020, Glenn Beck and his research team uncovered an alleged multi-billion dollar money laundering scheme which lead to a missing $1.8 billion in U.S. aid sent to Ukraine during the Obama administration, all of which pointed to Igor Kolomoisky, the corrupt Ukrainian billionaire at the center of it all.

If you missed Glenn's February special, "Ukraine: The Final Piece," you can find it here.

This week, the FBI raided the offices of U.S. companies owned by Kolomoisky in Cleveland and Miami. Additionally, the Department of Justice accused the Ukrainian oligarch of stealing billions of dollars from PrivatBank and then laundering the money through a network of companies all over the world. Kolomoisky and partner, Hennadiy Boholyubov, owned PrivatBank until December 2016, when Ukraine nationalized the bank because billions of dollars had gone missing.

Kolomoisky has ties to the Ukrainian gas firm Burisma, former Burisma board member Hunter Biden, and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, whose phone call with President Donald Trump was central to the Democrats' now-failed impeachment attempt.

On the radio program Friday, Glenn spoke with chief researcher Jason Buttrill about these latest developments.

"Yeah, $1.8 billion of [taxpayer] money that just vanished has now been found, or at least part of it, in Miami and Cleveland," Glenn said.

"I can't believe it's taken this long," Jason responded. "You said in February that [Kolomoisky] was the key to finding out where the money went. And we're talking about $1.8 billion dollars — $1.8 billion! That could finance a small war."

"That money went to PrivatBank — that's Kolomoisky's bank," he continued. "It was later nationalized after they found out all this money was mysteriously going missing. But it went through a bank in Cypress then, poof, it was laundered all over the world. [...] We also showed, in one of the previous shows, that there were wire transfers going from Burisma, which Kolomoisky is the managing principal of, to Hunter Biden."

Glenn and Jason also talked about recent reports from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) alleging ties between American revolutionaries, such as Antifa, and Marxist terrorists in Syria, which BlazeTV exposed back in June. Find out more here.
