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.”

Presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) may say he's all about advocating for the common good, but during his more than 30 years in "public service," the socialist senator has been more adept at promoting his own bottom line.

Investigative journalist and best-selling author, Peter Schweizer, joined Glenn Beck in the studio Friday to discuss his new book, "Profiles in Corruption: Abuse of Power by America's Political Elite," and to break downs how Sanders has become the very model of the corrupt socialist leader who becomes wealthy at the expense of the citizens they are elected to serve.

"It's a major problem for Bernie Sanders," Schweizer said. "He's turned socialism into a profession that has generated a lot of money to his family."

"Isn't that what always happens?" Glenn asked. "I mean, everybody in charge of a socialist country, they walk away with billions, in some cases, and the people are left starving."

"Yes, that's exactly right," agreed Schweizer. "It is a racket for Bernie Sanders. And the sort of austere image that he presents —kind of the John the Baptist of the progressive movement — it's simply not true."

By now you've probably heard all about former Vice President Joe Biden's alleged corruption in Ukraine with his son, Hunter, and the Ukrainian energy company, Burisma. But as it turns out, the Biden family's dubious dealings weren't limited to Ukraine, but extended to China as well.

In this clip, Glenn Beck explains Hunter Biden's four primary "problems" in China, including partnering with criminals, working with Chinese companies accused of stealing and spying on the U.S. military, as well as some very sketchy investments.

Bill O'Reilly joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" on Friday for his weekly take on the 2020 presidential race.

O'Reilly emphasized what a dangerous candidate socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) really is, and how the media is working to mislead voters by depicting other Democratic candidates, such as former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, as "moderate."

"The Democratic Party has been hijacked -- and this is no breaking news -- by the progressive left. Which is now being enabled by the national media," said O'Reilly.

"Bernie Sanders is a dangerous man. In any sane time, media time, that would be clear to everybody. But it's not," he added. "It's like, 'Oh, there's uncle Bernie and he just wants to give stuff away. What a great guy.' [He's] not a great guy, all right? He's a totalitarian. He'll take your freedom, in every area, away. Every area. There isn't one area, that Bernie Sanders wouldn't intrude upon, in your personal freedom. Yet, that's not reported. You don't know it unless you pay attention. It's all a bunch of dishonest blather that has obliterated the so-called moderate Democrat. And there are millions of those people. They don't know what to do because they have no voice in the media."

Glenn pointed out that the media has been "trying to make Pete Buttigieg into a moderate" ever since his strong showing in the Iowa caucuses last week.

"So, Pete Buttigieg: Harvard grad. Rhodes Scholar. Brilliant man, he is brilliant. Great speaker. Almost as good as Beck and I. Not quite, but almost," O'Reilly said. "He's only 38, all right? So, the guy goes out and runs for president after being the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, for eight years, and almost destroying that city. The city is in chaos, yet he's re-elected with 80% of the vote the second time. That's what a good BS'er Pete Buttigieg is.

The two went on to break down Buttegieg's radical policy plans on immigration, abortion, gun control, and more.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck and his chief researcher, Jason Buttrill, have uncovered new evidence that suggests the coronavirus death toll numbers coming from China are grossly inaccurate.

After vetting several deep-fake videos circulating on social media, Jason unearthed shocking whistleblower-videos released by citizens of the communist state that show entire warehouses filled with body bags, along with other atrocities.

Jason and Glenn break down the real numbers and discuss the possibilities of the outbreak coming to America. Watch the video below for more details:
