Limiting Beliefs

372: Attacking the Gremlins with Jane Massengill

Does the internal chatter of ADHD really sound all that different than that of those who don’t live with it? Our guest today has been working among other leaders in the field to help find those Gremlins in our heads and quiet them down, making room for the benefits that come with the positive voices and stories we write about our own contributions to the world around us.

319: The Importance of Language — Why Words Matter

Listen to Why Words Matter on The ADHD Podcast

Words are important. Since our conversation with James Ochoa and our efforts to change our language around the words manage versus navigate, we’ve heard from many listeners who are trying to change their language, too. This week, we’re taking on so-called “binary language,” conditions we set for ourselves in which there are only two conditions; good or bad, sick or healthy, smart or dumb, organized or not. When you shine a light on this kind of language, it sounds ridiculous, but how often do we let these terms creep into our lives subconsciously?

285: Learning to Pivot around your Limiting Beliefs

Today, we’re talking about the stories we tell ourselves to justify our feelings. Sometimes, they help us to rationalize our own place in the world. But most often, these stories cement in us the belief that the reason we can’t change — finish a project, move ahead at work, create fulfilling relationships — is somehow based in fact.

215: Finding good enough, and freedom from the language of failure

We’ve asked the question before, but this week we answer it in detail. What does it mean to get organized just enough? It means getting organized for you, and not for any organizing system.

This week on the show, we take on a question from a listener that bundles such important concepts as balance, organizational aspiration, and shame around ADHD and living the organized lifestyle. It’s a big show, a big question, and hopefully offers you a big and inspired summer organizing season!
