ThinkerBites's Bio

I am Chuck creator and writer ( always maybe & usually am ) assisted by my lovely wife of 26 years, Becky. I am a Medical Laboratory Tech for a major Cancer Center and my wife is an Registered Nurse employed at a surgical specialty facility in Arkansas. We both attended the University of Arkansas/ Fort Smith and North Arkansas College/ Harrison. We have a son and a daughter, both grown and a grand daughter of ( not so grown) about two months old. Grandma has already hopelessly spoiled her and I expect that to continue, despite my best efforts. ThinkerBites is both a pleasure and a labor of love. Let's open up a "positive" can of worms together!

Finally we (implement new directives) into our everyday life functions utilizing all the new software and systems we just put in motion for the computer on the end of our necks. As humorous as this might sound the discovery of this information can completely change your relationship to your life success or failure. Despite what you have been taught; you can attain your dreams, be happy and avoid the terrible pit-fall of regret awaiting those who don’t know the truth about the power of the human mind to exert the force controlling the mental energy which in turn governs our personal lives. The truth is that you can’t do any of the above criteria without some degree of common sense so if you are short on that item better kick your game up a notch or two and get some, it’s called Personal Development.

What we are talking about here is you putting yourself out there to gain some Personal Development which enables you to gain the knowledge necessary to gather that common sense which is really not that common and use it to your advantage by creating a better version of you. To begin the implementation of your new-found program to retrain and develop your subconscious mind to seek your success rather than your failure, you must face your attitudes and your self-esteem issues first. Bad habits such as negativity and can’t do syndromes won’t be an asset so dump them, replacing them with a positive prospective and a can do resolve will produce the desired result. Spend some time thinking when it’s quiet and you can begin to meditate on positive actions. WARNING: this is not an overnight process, like anything worthwhile it takes time which is normal. There aren’t very many over-night success stories that are true and examples for that are everywhere. I once listened to an interview with a successful singer/song writer and performer who was asked how it felt to be an overnight success to which he replied; I have no idea. I have been working to get where I am now for twenty hard years. I have played backup guitar for some of the biggest singers on the planet til I finally earned my opportunity and here I am. It just wasn’t one of those overnight things!

The Bite for tonight is simple and short; how to make the changes necessary we have gone through in this and the previous two posts about reprogramming your unconscious mind through your subconscious all boil down to this;”Any worthwhile change for you is all up to you.” As we’ve said so many times; ” It’s All About The U In You“… and it has been all along!

Download and Install

In the previous ThinkerBite post we discussed the fact that to make a change in your life you must first download, install and implement a new set of directions for the control of your subconscious mind. Our ingrained behaviors are initiated by the subconscious rather than the conscious mind. The terminology used is a change in the “paradigm” which is the blackboard of directions for your actions (unconscious mind) kept safely out of range (from conscious mind) so that these directives can not  be easily nor accidentally changed and altered….science calls this your subconscious mind. Most of our daily decisions are made with our emotions via the subconscious mind. Your beliefs and attitudes are products of this segment of your brain and as such are not easily changeable. In order to fix the defect in your subconscious/unconscious mind it is necessary to download and install a new un-corrupted operating system and install it.

Once you understand that your data is corrupted, you know you need to download the new data and dump the old corrupted-outdated instructions. In order for your system to operate properly there are sometimes you just gotta defrag your hard drive. The necessary effort is a painstakingly time consuming pain in the neck but survival of the entire system is in danger and putting it off can mean a possible exposure to the incurable, ever frightening “blue screen of death” to be interpreted as life-failure and regret. The key to understanding the mental picture we just drew is three fold; the unconscious is where the instructions are located and that is protected by the emotion center of the subconscious which separates the conscious from the unconscious. We related this seldom talked-about truth to the operation of a computer system simply because most people understand the basic concept of digital systems and the language used to describe them.

The fact remains that we are programmed during our formative years by the education system, family traditions, cultural observances, beliefs and religious institutions. While it’s true we are to some existent products of our environment, upon recognition that what we have thought previously was incorrect we can update our thinking (defrag hard-drive), change our operating  procedures (operating-system download) and redirect activity(install the new download). Once we have our new system installed {use of personal development is required} to reset to the new mode of operation by the change of a few old habits and the implementation of writing new instructions to the unconscious mind which will be the next Bite in this series.

The ThinkerBite for your mental digestion tonight is; “A wasted mind is like a closed parachute, til it is opened it’s absolutely useless” open your mind to a new and better reality by becoming all that you can be. A story is told about a man who became despondent over the sudden failure of his livelihood so much so that he jumped off a ten story building…I know the story to be true because I heard him scream when he passed the  open window of my bathroom on the sixth floor… so far, so good! That’s how many folk see their future to nowhere while leaving it to chance, life is really changed by a choice deep inside you and not by some fate of chance slapping you down. Check out the next Bite which deals with implementing your newly installed software….

The Change

Changing Gears

The question posed here is an all inclusive MUST-HAVE if a change in the direction of your life is what you’re searching for. There can be little change in your life without a change of both vision and action. The first necessary tool is an understanding that your mind is stuck in neutral and you’ve got to learn how to change your mental gears.This operation requires that you alter the perception of your reality, that is to say that you reprogram your subconscious mind.

The subconscious mind is where your core beliefs are stored and from where your actions are initiated. In order to change the out-come of your life in any substantive category you must make a change in the subconscious (emotional) portion of your mind which is in control of the direction of all your plans, goals and actions. The negative beliefs and attitudes which you were taught are preventing your advancement on the  road to achieve your dreams and stunting the growth of your Personal Development. This portion of your mind contains the paradigm which controls how you apply yourself to any action by a set of preprogrammed instructions previously installed into your head.

The paradigm is the way in which you think about what you think about, so in essence you are attempting to change the way you approach any given idea, plan, goal or action. The late and great Dr. Wayne Dyer said it this way; “When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at will change” which sounds like a clever play-on-words but the concept is much more than that, it actually is a fact. What you expect about what you’re thinking will expand so if you think you can accomplish something or you think that you can’t you will be correct on both counts.


Working on changing your subconscious won’t come without costs of time, work and effort but the harvest is worth the price of the planting. Resurrection of your dreams-of-old can give such a feeling of freedom and accomplishment that the prospect of reaching them is unsettling, exciting, frightening and exhilarating all at the same time.The Bite for tonight is our moto statement which says; ” It’s All About The U Inside You” and that is precisely on target. The paradigm is inside you, it is the real you, it is the auto-pilot of your life and you gotta redirect your automation center. Develop a new paradigm to achieve your dreams and start today, it’s the first day of the rest of your life so make it count! The next few Bites will research the how of changing your paradigm…..

Forgetful Prevention

The Bite for today hit’s close to home for me because I’m at the place in my life where my memory is on a degrading slope, that is to say that my memory is going on a permanent lunch break while the rest of me is still on the field in the middle of the game.

We will all deal with this issue at some point in our lives, the problem is how to cope with the disastrous embarrassment, massive inconvenience and the other trouble which it creates. The one thing I have gathered that might be of some interest to you this horrible monster is on it’s way to your house! Here are somethings that you can do to slow the progression of or eliminate the effects of memory loss altogether. First, you can learn to plant key words in your mind that will help you remember certain specific ideas, phrases, letters or words called acronyms which are usually abbreviations of an idea or title that will key a certain thought when queried. An example might be The American Medical Association is remembered by the Letters AMA, now that wasn’t too difficult was it; there are many more you can learn and invent your own. Secondly, you could have a brain transplant but due to the lack of good brain availability and the cost of the a fore mentioned procedure, unless your a billionaire is this one’s out of the question! Thirdly, if you are young the question is academic, just stop getting older and you’ve solved your problem….( boo-hiss-hiss) that’s not much of an option but all opt-out’s are considered here at ThinkerBites.

Fourthly the easiest way of all is our last and recommended solution: stop trying to remember it and write it down. The reward for this method is a quick note read can trigger a huge group of memories. ThinkerBites offers this bit of mental calories for your mind’s culinary enjoyment; “You don’t need to write it down, you’ll remember that!” has turned-out to be the biggest lie I ever told myself! We are just here to help but it really is “All About The U Inside You!”

Help Needed: Instructions Are NOT Included


Instructions NOT Included

The mental-dietary Bite for tonight is an educational exploration extravaganza!  We delve into the the points of learning, knowing, doing and teaching others how to do the same. While it is fundamentally necessary that you get an education, it is also important to understand what was said by Jim Rohn and we are paraphrasing; “Academic education will make you a living, self education will make you a fortune.”

Correctly guided positive actions must be injected into what we learn and know in order achieve the intended goals we design. The final obligation for those who’ve seen the light is to HELP those who haven’t. The first KEY to leadership is to understand; there is more than one way to skin a cat and the phrase; “that’s the way it was always done” must be tossed-out of the equation altogether. The second Key for they who would be leaders is to remember how it felt before you got the picture? There are doubts and confusion in the minds of everybody who is new to the philosophy of Personal Development as it begins to change their thinking. It starts as a spark and must be fanned into a flame and if properly tended, it will become a sustainable fire. Remember there is a difference between a useful fire and a spark!

By the way, we have some folks who discovered Personal Development and stalled out in their growth because of neglected feedings that were never prepared by a leader or mentor at the initial encounter with the new self actuation. The new way of thinking that come packaged in a bright shining flashy cover and a note in tiny print that reads: operating instructions NOT included……

There are so many broken people out there who have missed building a fire because some leader did not take the responsibility to help them learn how. The only down-side to Personal Development remains that most who could teach others until they mature enough to be self dependent, don’t. Teaching can not be a hit and miss operation, understandable communication is the name of the game. It is about time that those who know what it takes to make it exert the effort help those who don’t. Together we can build a better team through better leadership from the bottom all the way to the top! Leaders.. the Bite for tonight is directed at you; “Lives are effected by what we learn, what we know, what we do but most of all by who and what we teach.”

Reach for the joy that is contained only in helping others find the way out of the darkness and into the lighted pathway toward the pursuit of their dreams. Note: To find what you can’t see is an insurmountable task to most human beings, they will fumble around for awhile then give-up and give-out….Leaders help by turning on your light to show the way. Try to listen with your heart, recalling how alone, afraid, shy and helpless you felt when you began your own journey. They’re filled with so many questions, some of which they don’t even know how to ask so be tenderly patient. The objective is to POUR your knowledgeintothem and NOT ontothem and there is a very big difference. Hey LEADERS, help those who can’t swim learn how…jump on in, the water’s just fine! “It’s All About The U In You” and them ..….
