Set Your Goal SO Big That You Have to Grow to Achieve It - 089

goals growth identity Sep 27, 2021

When you set a goal, you are setting a direction for yourself.  And setting a direction can change the course of your life; it depends on the goal that you set.

In my 50s, I wrote a goal on my flipchart one day that I wanted to have a positive impact on the lives of at least a million people in my lifetime.  I had no idea what that goal really meant nor how it would unfold when I wrote it that day.

Then, many years ago, I found an anonymous quote online – “Set a goal so big that you can’t achieve it until you grow into the person who can.”  Okay…  I had set a goal so big that I couldn’t even imagine how I could achieve it, however, the quote said that I needed to grow into the person who could.  At the time, I had no idea what that meant – grow into who and how?

Looking back, I can see that the combination of the goal I wrote and the quote I found were the stimulus for me to grow into who I have become and am...

What's Keeping You Stuck - 082

identity limiting beliefs Feb 17, 2021

Jim Rohn said - "For things to change, you have to change."

It seems very obvious when you think about it, for things to change, you have to change. I've been thinking about this quote a lot lately. And it's taken on a much deeper meaning for me, because he didn't say, for things to change, you have to change things. What he said is for things to change, you have to change. I understand now that means that I have to change in whatever ways are necessary for things to change for me, whatever those things are; and if I don't change, which is an inside job, then things in the outside world are not going to change for me. So, for things to change, you have to change.

In this episode Dr B talks about:

  • Counter-examples to limiting beliefs
  • Upgrading your identity or sense of self

Who You Think You Are & What You Say To Yourself & About Yourself - 053

identity self-talk Oct 23, 2017

Hey ADDers!  Who do you think you are?  Seriously!!  Is your self-talk positive and encouraging?  Are the stories you tell yourself and others about you positive and encouraging?  Or, are they the kind of statements and stories that are contributing to holding you back and keeping you in an emotional ditch of underachieving and less than status?  Are you as happy as you want to be? If you resonate with any of this, then keep listening!!

I am re-branding my show name to "Living Beyond ADHD," to more accurately reflect the content I actually talk about.  Watch for new artwork and name soon.

In this episode, I talk about:

  • Your identity or sense of self
  • Past self
  • Present self
  • Future self
  • The importance of celebrating your WINS

Life Is What Happens While You’re Making Other Plans - 041

Hey ADDers!  I’m so glad you could join me today.  You know, if you don’t find a way to stay present every day and have some sort of tracking system for your important goals, then your life unfolds in kind of a haphazard way and those important goals might never be realized; which would be awful.

Years ago an anonymous quote came into my life - “Set a goal SO BIG that you can’t achieve it until YOU GROW INTO THE PERSON WHO CAN.” I love this quote because it told me where to focus my efforts. 

It’s important to point out here that my focus was on each day, rather than some distant day when I had become the person I needed to be. Instead, day-by-day, I focused on what I could do each day to become more of that person. I asked myself what I could do each day that would advance me closer to becoming more of my best self; how could I challenge myself to strengthen and grow in the direction of becoming more of me. I was developing habits...
