Famous Liars, Infamous Lies

Famous Liars, Infamous Lies

Can you identify who these famous liars are and the infamous lies they told? Regarding his investigation for corruption:  “whether you tape me privately or publicly, I can tell you that whatever I say is always lawful and the things I’m interested in are always lawful.”  Rod Blagojevich-then Governor, D-Ill. Regarding rumors of his extramarital affair, first published in the National Enquirer: “tabloid trash.” Also lied about fathering a child with his mistress as later proven with DNA testing.  John Edwards Regarding the release of lewd photos the married congressman sent to women over the Internet:  “This was a hoax. It was committed on me, it was a prank, it was a relatively easy one to do, making fun of my name.”  Anthony Weiner While dodging rumors of an extramarital affair while running for the Democratic nomination in 1987: “follow me around. I don’t care. … I’m serious. If anybody wants to put a tail on me, go ahead. They’d be very bored.”  Sen. Gary Hart, D-Colo After reports surfaced of an affair with former White House intern: “I did not have sexual relations with that woman.”  Bill Clinton Delivered his infamous lie on November 17, 1973:  “I am not a crook,”  Richard Nixon In a 2007 sting operation at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport after sexually soliciting an undercover officer.

Share Your Story for a $50 Holiday Giveaway

Share Your Story for a $50 Holiday Giveaway

The Holiday Season is a time for reflecting on what we have to be grateful for, but it is also a time for giving to those in need. Last year, for my Christmas Radio Program, I gave $50 to several of my co-workers to go out in to the community as Secret Santa’s.  They were to randomly find someone to give the money to, then come on the air with me to tell their story of giving.  They took their roles as “Secret Santa” very seriously. It was a heartwarming show to hear of the gratitude expressed by the people who received the random gifts, but also for how it touched my co-workers to be able to give. I am giving my blog followers the chance to be my “Secret Santa’s”!   The Joan Jerkovich Show is giving away $50 to 3 people in need. Share your personal story of need, or nominate someone who needs a helping hand during this Holiday.  The show Producers will choose the winners of the giveaway.  We will be watching how many Facebook likes, or thumbs up your submission gets in making our decision on who will get the $50 Secret Santa gift.  Submissions close Thursday December 21.  The Holiday Secret Santa Show will air the weekend of December 22nd and 23rd.  Let’s work together to spread Holiday Cheer to those in need!

Strained Family Holiday Relationships

Strained Family Holiday Relationships

It’s that time of year when we get thrown together with those family members we don’t get along with, or worse, would be happy to avoid seeing altogether. The drinker who imbibes too much to the embarrassment of all. The politico who likes to argue his point until everyone is frustrated. The jokester whose jokes always poke fun at someone else. The pill popper who sits in the corner glassy eyed and disengaged. The newly widowed or divorced who are struggling to make it through their first holiday alone. The drama king or queen who can always be expected to stir the pot and get people riled up. The unexpected angry outburst that leaves those involved fuming, and those who are not, wishing they could leave. The stress of being in the same room with the family member you have been avoiding all year. The combination of challenging holiday scenarios is unlimited and we’ve all found ourselves in these situations. Would you like to talk with me about strained family holidays?                       Join my Live Chat!  Details below. So how do you brace for the onslaught of uncomfortable interactions and emotions during the Holidays? Plan ahead for what you will say to that challenging person to avoid a confrontation. Repeat a calming mantra in your head. When you feel yourself getting triggered, focus on your breathing. Embrace your personal power by maintaining your dignity and keeping your cool. Honor yourself by setting reasonable boundaries; such as not allowing personal attacks. Take the high road by apologizing or holding out the olive branch for peace (if only for the day). Monitor your own behavior, don’t drink too much, choose your words thoughtfully. If you feel provoked, disengage or walk away.  A family

Will I ever be sure I should end this relationship?

1.  I’m 75% sure I should end my two year relationship. Will I ever be 100% sure? The young lady who asked me that question had already tried breaking up with her boyfriend for 2 weeks, but found herself getting back together again.  She talked about how, even though she felt “happier” broken up, she patched up the relationship for another try, but now she was considering another, more permanent breakup.  My answer to this question in one word was “No”.  We are usually never 100% sure of any decision we make.  With any decision that you make, that is difficult for you, take the time to process that decision using the methods that have worked well for you in the past.  For some of us, it can be making out a list of pros and cons.  For others, we need to discuss the decision with a friend to “bounce” it off of.  Spend some time with the decision.  That way, once it is made you can be more confident that it was the right one for you.  Listen to my video answer on this question. Please join the conversation and join me tomorrow for another Life Coaching question! ~ Joan Jerkovich, BCC
