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.

Listen to this post … Hoping our kids learn important lessons through lecture is a fruitless strategy. All your kid really gets better at is tuning you out. I’ve learned (especially with ND kids), introspection is a more powerful teacher. But ND kids tend to avoid introspection. Their self-consciousness and inner critic make it something they want to

A useful way to manage anxiety

Listen to this post … Let me tell you something about anxiety. Anxiety is stored up energy for action you can’t take. When you fret about the past, thinking about how it should have gone, what you should’ve done – you’re suggesting to yourself another course of action is possible. Your subconscious mind thinks, “Yeah, let’s do

Getting beyond RSD with ADHD

Listen to this post … I have an idea about RSD (Rejection Sensitivity Dysphoria) experienced by many with ADHD. I’ve noticed those that experience it perceive relationships in an all or nothing way. You’re loved or unloved, given attention or ignored, you’re happy when they’re happy. When in a relationship it’s often co-dependent. Wanting constant access to the

He’s going to be an adult someday so he may as well learn it now

Listen to this post … “He’s going to be an adult someday so he may as well learn it now.” This is a concerning belief in the mind of many parents raising a child with neurodivergence (ND). It demonstrates a fundamental misunderstanding about how our kids learn. Believing a consequence needs to be harsh and effective the first
