“The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are.”
– Jim Morrison


Personal Power

Your personal power only works if you do. Use your skills, knowledge, and resources to take action and make positive changes in your life and the lives of others. This can help you develop a sense of urgency and impact in the world around you.

Take time to reflect on your values, beliefs, strengths, and weaknesses. Identify goals that align with your values and priorities.

Learn and develop new skills that align with your goals and interests. 

You will develop a sense of purpose and direction as you become more competent and confident in different areas of your life.

This week’s ADHD Challenge

Self-Imposed Limits

Pushing your limits helps you grow and develop as a person. It enables you to discover your strengths, weaknesses, and potential. You can learn valuable lessons from the challenges you face and the successes you achieve.

When you push your limits, you prove to yourself that you are capable of more than you thought. This will boost your confidence and self-esteem, which can help you tackle other challenges in your life.

Exceeding your perceived limits can give you a sense of empowerment and control and lead to a sense of accomplishment and satisfaction.

It can erase years of misguided and false criticism and build a powerful self-belief. 

Pushing your limits can help you become stronger, more capable, and more fulfilled.


Don’t limit your challenges. Challenge your limits.



  • Your mindset plays a vital role in determining your success, and you need to believe in your abilities and your potential to exceed limits.
  • Set goals that are challenging but achievable. Goals should motivate you and give you a sense of purpose. Write down your goals and create a plan to achieve them.
  • Consistent action is vital to exceeding limits. Break your goals into smaller, manageable steps and take action on them daily. This helps you build momentum and make progress towards your goals.
  • Failure is a natural part of the process. Instead of letting failure defeat you, use it as a learning opportunity. Analise your failures, identify what went wrong, and adjust your approach.
  • Reward yourself for each step achieved on the road to your success. 
  • Find mentors or role models who have already achieved what you are trying to achieve. Learn from their experiences, their mistakes, and their successes. Modify their processes to suit your ADHD mind.
  • Exceeding limits takes time and effort. Stay focused on your goals, and persist through challenges and setbacks. Don’t let temporary obstacles derail you from your long-term vision.

Weekly Tip

Keep Going.

Persevering is part of the matrix of life. When you feel like the world is against you, keep going. Remember, everything is temporary, and this, too, shall pass.

Be kind and compassionate to yourself, even when things are difficult. 
Acknowledge your efforts and progress, and remember that setbacks and challenges are a natural part of the learning and growing process.

Develop a success file or journal that you can go back to that reinforces your self-worth.

Reach out to friends, family, or an ADHD support group for emotional support and encouragement. Talking with others can help you gain a new perspective on your situation and provide you with additional resources and ideas.
