This week’s ADHD Challenge
Living in a Neurotypical World.
Stop trying to conform to how other people think you should behave.
Be true to yourself and your ADHD traits, be kind to yourself and others.
However, you must live your life to capitalize on your strengths and be consistent in how you do things. This will help build your self-confidence.
You don’t need harsh and misguided feedback from neurotypical people who have zero understanding of your challenges and abilities.
“What sets you apart can sometimes feel like a burden, and it’s not. And a lot of the time, it’s what makes you great.” — Emma Stone.
- 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.
- Just because you feel and do things differently doesn’t mean it’s wrong. It’s just different.
- 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!
- Don’t criticize yourself for things that are impossible for your ADHD brain to accomplish.
- Allowing yourself to be ‘different’ is critical to your success and happiness.
Celebrate Your Successes.
Celebrate both big and small achievements to stay motivated, maintain focus and build confidence.
It allows you to acknowledge your accomplishments and give yourself credit for the hard work you have put in.
Celebrating will help boost your self-esteem and remind you of your awesome capabilities and encourage you to continue striving towards your goals and dreams.
“Success is not just about the outcome, but also the effort and growth that led you there.”
I have read over 500+ books since 1992. Unfortunately, my limited ADHD memory means I forget most of it within a week or two!
I started keeping notes of interest on Word docs for later reference, and I am using these notes as the basis of what I present here.
When I’m reading and come across an inspiring idea or something that I haven’t heard before, or something I want to try, I save it.
That’s all my notes are. I’m not summarizing the book. I’m just saving useful ideas for later recall and use.
Take care, enjoy
