Doing Hard Things

The difference between parents of children with Autism who get potty training, communication and problem behaviors solved versus the ones who don’t is they’re practiced in DOING HARD THINGS.

Doing Hard Things ISN’T you changing diapers for YEARS.

Doing Hard Things ISN’T dealing with countless hand leading trips to the pantry because your baby can’t tell you what they want.

Doing Hard Things ISN’T even enduring Five Alarm Meltdowns, getting hit, or watching them hit themselves.


Doing Hard Things IS to keep at Potty Training no matter how many pairs of underwear need to be cleaned or thrown out.

Doing Hard Things IS insisting your child use their PECS/AAC device, Sign Language, or make the “ccccccc” sound for cookie instead of giving in to their whining or crying for it.

Doing Hard Things IS taking MASSIVE often PAINFUL action to get these skills on lock.

Doing Hard Things IS learning to be resilient, taking fail after fail, which are really LEARNS moving you closer to what finally works. 

Doing HARD THINGS IS DOUBLING DOWN on your efforts when your brain wants to quit and curse you for believing in something different for your life and your child’s life. 

The definition of success is accomplishment of an aim or purpose.

To ACCOMPLISH we must take tons of action.

At first it’s tons of messy shitty action, but the more you do it, the better you get at it.

This is the definition of DOING HARD THINGS.

But the human brain doesn’t like doing hard things.

Your human brain is designed to seek pleasure and avoid pain.
But that’s it’s job… to keep things the way they are now, to just survive.

Your brain says… “I know it’s not ideal but we can survive with a preverbal diaper wearing child.”


Do you want you and your child to survive or do you want to thrive?

Because being comfortable living uncomfortably is just something you’re used to.. it’s just surviving….

…. not doing something that’s hard.
