Hour 1: Dr. Alex Lickerman
Joining Amerika Now during the first hour of the show is one of America’s top physicians, Dr. Alex Lickerman, who will be discussing his recent book, The Undefeated Mind: On The Science of Constructing an Indestructible Self.
“To possess an undefeated mind means not just that we rebound quickly from adversity or face it calmly, even confidently, without being pulled down by depression or anxiety, but also that we get up day after day, week after week, month after month…and attack the obstacles in front of us again and again and again until they fall–or we do. An undefeated mind isn’t one that never feels discouraged or despairing; it’s one that continues on in spite of it.” – Alex Lickerman, MD.
Dr. Lickerman will present the tools needed to become more resilient whether you’re suffering from depression, unemployment, anxiety, weight issues, addiction, illness or pain as well as unfold the road map that leads to resilience and indestructible happiness.
Drawing on his own personal experience, two decades of case studies drawn from his patients, scientific research, and the tenets of Nichiren Buddhism, Lickerman will show that while the ability to control what happens in life may be limited, people do have the capacity to establish a life that surmounts the suffering life brings. Resilience isn’t something that only a fortunate few are born with, but rather it’s something anyone can take action-steps to develop.
Dr. Lickerman will reveal some of the nine principles anyone can use to increase their inner strength, including:
The Meaning of Victory–a look into the human desire to be happy; how to obtain benefits from adversity; why wisdom can bring an end to suffering.
Find Your Mission–Identifying a personal mission; creating a sense of purpose and committing to that mission.
Make a Vow–Resolve and the ability to carry on; identifying obstacles and overcoming barriers; steps for when self-confidence is undermined; avoiding distractions.
Expect Obstacles–Making use of adversity; examining the stories that individuals tell themselves; negative thoughts and the anxiety of uncertainty.
Stand Alone–The meaning of karma; moral transformation and dilemmas; authority, self-esteem; and the need to please.
Accept Pain–Exploration of physical and emotional pain
Let Go–Inevitability of loss; finding meaning in loss; self-compassion.
Appreciate the Good–Finding and maintaining gratitutde; gratitude for obstacles.
Encourage Others–Measuring compassion; judging others or understanding them; helping others to help oneself; the power of encouragement.
Muster Your Courage–The benefits of fear; fear of death; the sense of self.
