Dyslexia and Nootropics
Have you tried Nootropics? Do you know much about them? Can they help with Dyslexia? In this episode, I share my experience with trying to help my dyslexia & calming my visual neurodiverse mind.

Not being able to be Grateful
Does dyslexia stand in the way of you not being able to feel grateful? Gratitude can be hard at the best of times for me at least.

Doubtful about my dyslexia
Jody from Canada asks - My question is regarding dyslexia and imposter syndrome. I recently found out (by pure chance) that there is a very high probability that I am dyslexic... although my wife thought it was obvious and thought always knew. I don't have an official diagnosis because it costs several thousand dollars in Canada, but I've done what seems like 100 online tests and I nail them all. Top of the class. Since discovering my dyslexia and understanding what it is/does, my life has taken a surprisingly damatic and fast turn for the better. Yet still, I find periods where, without a diagnosis, I doubt my dyslexia... like, no I'm not dyslexic because of x,y,z. 1) I was very good at school... when actually, I was good at certain subjects and benefited from absent teachers in English, geography, and languages. 2) the "elephant" question in dyslexia tests. I always answer no, because I don't have trouble writing that word. But when I get to spelling helicopter, or hippopotamus... forget about it. Sometimes when auto-fill does not know what I'm trying to say it feels like I'm alone in a large empty room, randomly typing in guess letters until auto-fill throws me a life line. There's more, but despite all this I am constantly doubtful about my dyslexia. It's causing me to fear "coming out" as a dyslexic in fear of being outded as a hypochondriac. I also have a serious fear of actually finding out I'm not dyslexic and losing my super power. It's a lot of ups and downs. I've looked it up and can't find anyone talking about doubting their dyslexia, so I guess my question is... is this a normal feeling? Does it go away?

Intuition, The Future & Disorientation
I wanted to share a pod I did like 2 - 3 years ago. I was bouncing with energy and this pod really touches on some stuff I don't talk about enough anymore. Being conscious of how I have grown in the last 3 years I want to share some of these with a new spin. So this one on intuition and dyslexia is a cracker. I hope you enjoy younger me :) The audio is also great. Might need to go back to the old plugin to the phone Mic! #dyslexia #intuition #dyslexic #adhd P.S.

Self Sabotage + Dyslexia
Do you ever feel like you are getting something right? It is just coming together. Maybe a relationship, a job, a business or your health?

It's not good enough. Why did I even start? Everything is wrong. I can see every fault in everything - why do you get angry when I tell you that?

If you have dyslexia and/or adhd (they are very close friends). Then you would know that the control of your attention can feel like you are holding a massive fire hose that is being controlled by the water not always you.

Copy & Paste: How watching and doing can get us in trouble.

ADHD-D 🤔
If you have a mind like mine - you will get this podcast. One thing I keep being reminded of in my life is that we all have a bias. A bias of believing that the people we surround ourselves with make up the greater world. The true fact is.... they don't. But if our minds tried to comprehend that fully they probably would explode. I was reminded recently that not everyone is fully aware of the ADHD - Dyslexia combo and how linked they are. In this episode I look at preposing a new way to look at it.

Visual Mind: 3 Dyslexic Realisations
Dyslexia is a label. It is a label that with it brings a set of common traits. One of those traits is many of us have much much much more more powerful visual minds than the average person. Some of us have nurtured our visual minds, others have ignored it and taken it for granted. In this episode i wanted to share some thinking around how to see the visual mind and a new perspective shift I have had in the last little while.

Interview: Winning & Losing with Dyslexia
I have had this request a bit recently to interview other awesome Dyslexic's. So when one pops out of the shadows - I locked him down for a story telling session. What I love about this story is the other side - on the outside you would think just a successful person with a few bumps along the way - but inside there was always something missing until the realisation around Dyslexia. For anonymity we use the name Philip in the interview (I'm pretty sure he is not actually James Bond but you never know).

Dyslexia and ADHD in Adults
A question I never really had when I was younger was - Do I also have ADHD? It honestly never crossed my mind. For me personally I realised it was part of who I am when a friend asked to grab a coffee and find out more about the work I was doing in the Adult Dyslexia space. He mentioned he had just been diagnosed with ADHD and told me his story. He said one of the things that he learned was that if you find yourself tapping your foot in meetings or at boring times. It was a common sign of ADHD - It's like you are trying to speed up a super slow situation. Of that whole conversation that stuck with me like it had been glued on. As I noticed myself doing it I dug deeper & went to get diagnosed. I actually started by watching a video on ADHD - see the link below for that. Since then the ADHD & Dyslexia connection has only grown - I wanted to share my take on it.

Is it more likely that you don't really sit with how awesome you are and just run to the next thing? Maybe you have even learned to pretend that you are thankful. If you are like many dyslexics we really struggle to take credit for what we do, to sit in the happiness zone. We feel like we winged it. Move past it on to the next thing at speed and try to not stop long enough to enjoy it. In this episode I show you - you are not along, why it happens and give you a few dyslexic friendly tips to help you out. #dyslexia #dyslexic.

Over Thinking & Over Feeling
A really common challenge with Dyslexia is the over thinking & over feeling side of life. It can be misunderstood and is rarely connected to the dyslexic mind. But as you start to see the coronation it will open your eyes.

Reading, Writing & All That Stuff
In this episode we look into dyslexia in adults. We talk about Reading, Writing & all that stuff (spelling, tracking and more).  We dig into trigger words and similar things - the words people truly struggle with and why. I really wanted to touch on this topic but not get lost on reading & writing along as it is a smaller part of dyslexia than people think.

What actually is dyslexia?
Dyslexia - What does it actually mean? You may be thinking is he just going to talk about spelling, reading & writing? We already know that. Many of you will be thinking... maybe he has a few things up his sleeve to let us in on. Well you would be right. In this episode we will talk about: - How all kids operate in a dyslexic way up until the age of 3 or 4 - How the phrase 'A picture says 1000 words' can speak to the dyslexic mind with 1 key change - What key challenges come from Dyslexia that no one told you about - Why adults need to understand what happens at the root of dyslexia not just at the leaf level. This podcast is to help Adults with Dyslexia come to terms with the way Dyslexics think. It is super powerful and I hope you love it.

My Dyslexia Story - Start Here
Adult Dyslexia is one of the biggest hidden challenges I believe in the world today. Many people live with it undiagnosed, comparing themselves to others and asking - 'why don't i measure up?' Using tools to navigate life that were never mean't for them. It's like at school Dyslexic's were gifted a 6-speed manual Ferrari for a brain - but were only ever taught to drive an automation corolla. It's tough. This is the first episode in a new series as a starting point for Dyslexic's just starting to listen to the Truth About Dyslexia - It is my story. Through it you will get a taste of who I am - learn some lessons on what Dyslexia is and just maybe you will listen on to more. This podcast is 1000% FREE and designed to offer real 'aha' moments that will change peoples lives. I hope you love it and want to spread the word.

The present moment, over thinking - trapped in my head. My head sometimes seems like a prison, me like a robot and like I am not in control. But occasionally i get glimpses of the present moment in reality. They are beautiful. If you struggle to be present - this is for you.

Being Present & Grounded - A Dyslexic Challenge

Inner Conversations & The Dyslexic Mind
Have you ever had a conversation start up in your head? Unannounced its like 2 people are role playing in your mind. Some times it's super noticeable and other times you miss it?  This does not happen to just dyslexics, but it happens to all dyslexic's I have spoken too (in varying amounts). How can you use this to your advantage to move forward and not just feel the negative effect of a mental fight. Let's dive into it.

Creating Deep Change Not Just Surface Level Stuff
I find myself in a bunch of dyslexic facebook groups - Just watching. I love seeing the questions, the deep thoughts but more often than not I see a bunch of very very early - surface level challenges. Now I understand when you have just worked out you are dyslexic these kind of flashes of what are 'obvious' to me - seem like real 'aha' moments.  I was probably like it when I realised what Dyslexia was. As I write this I think I should actually keep a list of the questions and put them on our blog at https://truthaboutdyslexia.com but what I have learned and want to get across is - it's about digging deeper. Surface level fixes and solutions will only take you so far & will never be truly fulfilling. They are like the candy bar you buy at the checkout. It seems great for a moment and then ... nothing (if not feeling worse right).

Glitches In The System - When reality startles your inner world & how to deal with it.
I had a moment of reflection today. An experience happened where I handled it in such a 360 degree way. It showed how I am applying learnings in my life into the real world. This podcast is about the Dyslexic (right brained) trait of over reacting when someone interrupts either your hyper focus or your internal visual/emotional world.  This once change has had a profound impact on my relationships, anxiety, health, (insert other buzz words) and so on. I hope you like it. If you do I always appreciate a review (if you remember to do it) and a share 😃

Brain Energy (How it works)
Ever had those days where your brain is like - no. Not today. It has a mind of it's own right. It can be hard to see why this happens and you just feel broken... or I used to at least. I never would have seen it from a dyslexic perspective until I became more aware of how we work.  It was like the penny dropped. Hope you love this episode.

Hiding From The Truth

Cause and Effect
Sometimes in the past I feel like I have not really been able to match up the effect with the steps before it (cause). The more steps involved the harder it can be.

Connect 4, A little girl & changing your beliefs
So on the weekend I was getting my game on with the family. Connect 4, memory and some Jenga. Playing the game with Holly's daughter really got me seeing how firm we can be on something that is not right.  It helped me get even clearer on how I see myself and how I operate with changing my own mind and beliefs.

Reframing Sales & Money Technique
Many dyslexics have super visual minds. It can be powerful but also can create stories that don't really help us in the real world. This is the first time I have recorded a visual & auditory technique you can use. This one if focussed on reframing the idea of selling something (and touches on money too). It has been super powerful to me. I hope it adds a little value to your life.
