Welcome One and All
Welcome to The Grumpy Gator Cafe'
I am Bob Zima the cafe's resident Frequent Flyer to Hell and Back.
I am a counselor and humorist who shares his adventures into healing and innovative approaches to behavioral health and mental wellness through a live radio show/podcast, blogs, books videos and live stage show.
One thing I have learned on my various adventures to Hell and back and travels to find hope and healing is that a sense of humor and giving yourself permission to have fun are vital companions for those tough journeys.
I love hockey, NASCAR, adventure and thriller movies, the beach, my wife and kids and so much more. Life can be up and down, good and bad, left and right or even diagonal. I take it as it comes.
Each and every day I make it a point to attempt to improve my psychological fitness skills so that I can maintain my mental and behavioral health and wellness. Ain't easy. It's a struggle. And a choice.
I try to make the science and "industries" of psychology and theology easier to understand and actually leverage to improve the quality of life.
I try to make the search for hope and healing adventurous and fun...you must laugh often when searching for hope and healing.
I work hard to get and keep my head out of my ass and my ass off of the couch to remain fully engaged with the vibrancy of life. Healing isn't for wimps. Healing ain't easy. It's actual work.
I am a quirky, outspoken, irreverent, authentic and energetic husband, dad and hockey fan who just happens to host his very own internet radio show and podcast. I also write a blog, books and produce funny and educational videos!
I am a licensed clinical professional counselor who has over 10 years in the counseling profession and over 20 in the mass media production (TV, Radio, Film) industry. I hold a master of arts in counseling psychology and have experienced a wide array of things in my half a century living on this rock.

A Tribute to The Chase
The Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup is Green Flagged! And I am a huge racing fan.
In this tribute to The Chase video post, you'll watch me get ready to then actually take the wheel of a NASCAR race car and drive on a big time NASCAR track: The Chicagoland Speedway, the home of race 1 for The Chase.

Show Guide & Blog Stuff
I wrote this crapper companion guide for men (although women can benefit as well.)
Men only read and work on themselves when on the toilet. Or, at least that is the only time I look inward, reflect and maybe kind of choose, possibly, to change how I take in the world and respond.
I suggest and then teach you that healing your HURT and managing your FEAR is THE solution for reducing and, dare I even say it, eliminating the NEGATIVE OUTCOMES that occur as a result of anger.
Notice, I did not say, eliminate and/or reduce ANGER. I said, reduce and even eliminate the negative outcomes of your anger behaviors. You eliminate ANGER behaviors when you die.
The goal is to lead a life that FOR YOU is healthy, effective & enjoyable, as well as a whole lot of fun.
