“Asking for help is a sign of strength”


Personal Power

Use it, nothing changes if nothing changes.

Be bold in all that you do, and you’ll change your world.

Throw yourself into everything with a mild obsession.

Lift your intensity and keep going, even if it’s hard and uncomfortable.

Don’t be afraid to stand out or look like a ‘different” you.

This week’s ADHD Advantage


Problem-Solving Abilities

Brainstorming, use your faster processing to produce lots of ideas

Your unconventional thinking can help you approach challenges from different angles and come up with creative solutions.

You naturally challenge rules and assumptions.

Channel your rebellious nature into a productive outlet that solves problems for the greater good of all concerned.

This week’s ADHD Challenge


Accepting Your Different

First, know you are not at fault or faulty.

You didn’t ask for your ADHD traits.

Just because you feel and do things differently doesn’t mean it’s wrong, it’s just different.

Get to understand how your ADHD brain operates, so you can use your ‘different’ strengths


“You are different – not deficient”



  • Don’t criticize yourself for things that are impossible for your ADHD brain to accomplish.
  • You need to give yourself positive feedback for small and large achievements and encourage yourself with regular positive thoughts that reinforce your self-worth and self-confidence
  • Be your best supporter and stay positive as you work out how to benefit from your different abilities. Don’t condemn them. They are part of what makes you unique. Believe you are a good person!
  • Allowing yourself to be ‘different’ is critical to your success and happiness.

Weekly Tip

Build Resilience

Embrace the discomfort of being different, rather than the false comfort of trying to fit in.

Different people transcend their environment and stand out.

Don’t listen to anyone who tells you what you can or can’t do in life. You alone get to decide.

Be an original, colour outside the lines, and see where it takes you.


“It’s really important to share the idea that being different might feel like a problem at the time, but ultimately diversity is a strength?” – Carson Kressley
