The universe rewards action

Listen to this post ...

One of my clients (w/Asperger’s) is seeking a job after losing the previous one.

In the past they would’ve taken a passive, fill out applications then wait to be called approach.

Now, through coaching they’re very proactive. They follow up and even show up when needed.

This time around they’re receiving multiple interviews as a result of their efforts and I’m confident they’ll have a job soon.

Here’s why this should matter to you as someone with ADHD or another issue that defaults to overthinking, procrastination, rationalization or another form of resistance.

The universe rewards “action” more than intention.

I imagine some of the law of attraction (LOA) folks may argue with this. But in my experience, the intentional thinking of LOA creates behavior change since we only act according to our beliefs.

LOA works when your intention becomes a belief that informs action that helps create the result you want.

Just like the farmer can’t manifest a crop by intention alone.

Without the action required to move you forward the world, the universe doesn’t know what you want.

Your action is like a big finger (not that one) pointing toward your goal.

When you’re seen working toward or talk about your efforts it becomes a signal to those who can help you.

So get out of your head and into the arena.

You’ll never make a touchdown from the bench.

Thank goodness for second chances

You’ll have your share of naysayers when you’re neurodivergent. When I first enrolled in the Social Work Program, I had a professor who didn’t like me. She went out of her way to try and get me to drop out of the program. It was the early 1990’s and about a decade before I’d learn

When Facebook wants you to friend a childhood bully

Facebook just recommend I friend someone who literally used to torment me when we were kids. We have FB friends in common it seems. I felt anger at first as I looked at his face. I tried to see evidence of that kid I resented so much. I couldn’t see him. I didn’t know the

Self-care is about more than getting enough rest

Listen to this post … Self-care isn’t simply about taking care of the parts of you that take care of everyone else. It’s about so much more.  It’s about taking care of the “self”, who you are, what fills you up and makes you feel most alive.  I focus on the self-care that strengthens the
