The Value of Allowing Life to Happen Through You – TPS470

I recently watched an interview on C-SPAN with Ursula Burns, the first Black female CEO of a Fortune 500 company. I was impressed with her ability to allow life to happen through her rather than working hard to make it happen. A great example of synchronicity.


Brought up in a poor neighborhood, Ursula’s mother never let the kids know that they were poor.
I talk about how Ursula let her life happen rather than pushing toward a goal. The fact that she could not have conceived of being a CEO of a large company worked in her favor. I expand on this.
When you get yourself into the place where you allow your life to happen, you’ll get what you need to become who you are becoming.
It’s important to be satisfied with where you are and what you have and believe that what you need will show up but it will probably take longer than you want.
Problems and concerns are part of your journey.
I talk about the oppression that is prevalent in our society and relate something I went through via Microsoft that allowed me to feel controlled and powerless.
If you can recognize the situations when you feel controlled – or oppressed – it will allow you to process those feelings and not hold onto them.
When you hold things in rather than expressing them, it’s hard to let them go. It helps to talk to people about what’s bothering you – without kvetching.
Working through your emotions allows you to move your life comfortably forward.

NEW to MHNR Network!  That Infernal Noise – Tune In if You’re Feeling Alone!

That Infernal Noise:  A podcast new to MHNR Network that’s providing a safe space to feel a little less alone.

“If I am being honest, I feel like I have a higher calling to do something to help people. I have been told my whole life that people feel comfortable speaking to me and I enjoy that. I like thinking that I can help improve someone’s life just by talking or speaking to them and if I can help even one person it will be worth it.” – Robert (Host)

“We are those f*cked up thoughts in the back of your head”

When asked what his goal is for every episode of That Infernal Noise, Robert responds, “That no one is alone, no matter what they think.  I am not the atypical person you think of when it comes to being an advocate for mental health and have felt isolated because of it.”  He wants everyone to know that, no matter your race/creed/sexual orientation or any applicable qualifier you wish to use, that it is always okay to talk about your issues and seek help in whatever way works best for you.  He understands that managing our mental health is unique to each individual.

Robert uses his ‘weak’ and ‘insecure’ moments from his day to day life as the main talking points for each of his episodes and as a form of therapy.  He appreciates not only helping others, but there is a certain level of catharsis he gets from just being to put his truths out into the universe, rather than shoving it down and allowing it to fester and eventually consume him.

When asked about any personal information he’d like to share, he shared a bit of wisdom that his son reminded him of when he was having a bad mental day, “it is okay to have negative thoughts, it is what you do after them that matters.” He noted it was nice to know that teenagers listened…occasionally.
