A kind voice, real answers to real questions and an amazing help.

This podcast is really well done, answering questions on at a time, on a “true struggles” level : so many of them I could relate to, are asked from people who don’t know how to make their life better, and Duff is helping each one on them. I am so grateful for this podcast, and for answers to my personal question as well after emailing it to him.

The interviews are passionating, very enlightening, sometimes very personal and it’s so nice to see we’re not alone with all our questions in our heads.

Also, this is a bit personal but I am not a native English speaker, but he speaks so clearly and with words all can understand, it’s really helpful.

Thank you for all you do Robert Duff, the time and the respect you give to people are supporting so many of us.

Changing a life one episode at a time.....

Last year, I started seeing a psychiatrist and a counselor for anxiety and a mood disorder. Not long after I started seeing my counselor, she suggested that I try listening to some podcast. I had never listened to a podcast before because I assumed they were like listening to a boring talk show on the radio. A couple weeks later she asked if I had listened to any, and of course I said no. Later that day I’m browsing the podcast and come across this Hardcore Self Help
Podcast. I added it to my library and went on about my day. Finally that night I decided to suffer threw one podcast episode just to say that I had tried it. I turned on this podcast and the first episode I listened to was about making an anxiety ladder. I paused halfway threw the episode, got a paper, and pen. I made my own anxiety later that I still work on now. From then I was hooked. I get anxiety while doing various activities during the day, so I turn this podcast and I’m so focused on what Duff is saying that my anxiety disappears. I take notes from his podcast and implement them in my life if I feel they will work for me. Recently my grandmother passed and although I loved her, she was not a kind woman. I felt anger towards her. Even though my counselor said I didn’t need to feel guilty for my anger towards her, I did. I listened to the episode about toxic people a few days ago, and I was mind blown. I had never heard my grandmother being described so well. Although I loved her, I no longer feel guilty thanks to that episode! I am also OCD-cleaning- I had been struggling the last couple of weeks because I would not clean anything because I felt overwhelmed by the amount of things I felt I needed to do. I listened to the productivity episode, and the main thing that stuck out to me was doing 3 things a day and anything else was extra. The past couple of days I have been able to stick with making a list of 3 things to do instead of 50 and it has been beyond helpful. Every time I feel like I’m struggling, a new episode will come up and to say it helps would be an understatement. The episodes help me in between my appointments with my counselor, and she has been very happy with the progress I have made. Most of all, I’m proud of me. So thank you Duff, thank you for creating this podcast. Your making a difference in the way people think, approach things, and accomplish their goals.

Breakthrough

I started on the most recent episode because the title spoke to me, but I did not expect to have the reaction I did. The guest’s situation matched mine to a tee. I am shook.
