    Listen to one of Greg's Most Popular Segments

    "The Top Ten Whiny Victim Love Songs"  (above) is a funny bit that illustrates how cultural memes infiltrate our brains and affect our attitudes.

    The goal is to let good stuff in, and re-frame the bad stuff with humor. This is incredibly empowering and suspiciously healthy.

    After seeing this, most people will never hear a "whiny victim love song" the same way ever again: these songs have now become material for comedy!

    More importantly, this helps us become aware of any tendency we might have to think or act like a victim, and (hopefully) stop doing it.

    "Atilla The Gate Agent" is a humor story about dealing with difficult people:

    At some point we've all met Atilla. Maybe more than once! This is one of my signature stories.
    It reminds us that things always look different in hindsight. So it's best to not overreact in tough situations and dealing with difficult people.
