The best mindset won’t undo emotional blocks

Listen to this post ...

The idea of mindset as the determining factor in success is a misnomer. This coming from a guy often referred to as The Mindset King.

The truth is all the best thinking in the world won’t overcome emotional blocks in your body.

You may be able to push past (not through) them on occasion. Sure you still made progress, but you did it with a ball and chain strapped to your ankle.

You maintained the facade everyone has come to know, fearing the next time they may see through it.

Here’s the thing, the facade is for you. To protect you from the fear of being disliked for being yourself.

Not everyone likes pineapple on pizza (and I feel sorry for them 😉). That doesn’t mean pineapple is a worthless fruit that has no place in this world and that everyone would be happier without.

It means pineapple or anything else doesn’t lose its value just because it isn’t right for everyone.

No one should be granted the power to talk you out of believing in your own worth.

If you let them, remember, it isn’t them doing wrong by you, it’s you. You must do the work of connecting with and strengthening the core part of yourself that knows it’s worthy of being loved.

Strengthen it until it’s nonnegotiable. Meaning that even during times of criticism you know you’re still good enough. Know it in your heart as well as your head.

You have it in you, because if you didn’t have the capacity to love yourself you wouldn’t be drawn to the idea of increasing it.

It’s quite possibly the hardest work you’ll ever do. It’s the surest path to being liberated from the past.

I’m here to walk the path with you. As are those in my Inner Circle who will support you every step of the way.

Some great ideas for you

When “I don’t know”, is your kid’s favorite answer

Listen to this post … “Why did you do that?” “I don’t know!” If you are raising a neurodiverse kid this is a familiar exchange. Few parents know where to go from here. Fortunately, I do. Einstein said, “It’s not that I’m smart, it’s just that I stay with problems longer.” Introspection doesn’t come naturally to the neurodivergent, especially when

How do you feel about change?

Listen to this post … One assumption many parents and professionals make is that people with Neurodiversity aren’t motivated to improve their lives. It isn’t that they don’t want to change, they may not believe they’re able to change. They often have difficulty finishing what they start or getting started at all. Struggle with creating
