“Gratitude is being grateful for what we have, while we pursue what we want” – Jim Livingstone

 

Personal Power

Each decision we make represents an opportunity to exercise our personal power and influence the outcomes we desire.

It’s important to recognize that not all choices have the same impact, and some decisions may have long-term consequences that significantly influence our personal power.

The choices we make determine the direction of our lives.

A ‘Different’ Advantage

Society and civilisation progress when individuals think differently and challenge existing norms. 

Now more than ever, the world needs people who challenge the status quo through thinking, being and doing differently.

Is your time to shine.

This week’s ADHD Challenge

 

Late ADHD Diagnosis

What’s next? It’s normal to have questions about what steps to take next.

While a diagnosis may bring challenges, it can also lead to a better understanding of yourself and why you do the things you do.  
 
It can be a significant turning point in your life and open opportunities for growth and self-improvement,

Navigating life after your diagnosis involves adjusting to new realities, finding appropriate support systems, and learning to manage your condition effectively. 

 

“Being challenged in life is inevitable, being defeated is optional.” 
– Roger Crawford.

 

Solutions

  • Firstly, it’s essential to acknowledge and accept your diagnosis.
  • Educate yourself about ADHD, its symptoms, and recommended strategies for coping.
  • Consider consulting with a healthcare professional who specializes in ADHD to discuss potential treatment options such as medication, therapy, or lifestyle modifications.
  • Join support groups to connect with others who have had similar experiences.
  • As there are two sides to every coin, ADHD has both benefits and challenges. Spend more time on finding and using the benefits than being limited by your challenges.
  • Take an active role in your diagnosis process.

Weekly Tip

Relax

Relaxing makes you more productive.

Activating your body’s relaxation response promotes a sense of calm and tranquillity. 

This helps to lower cortisol levels and improve mental and emotional well-being. 

Relaxation techniques such as listening to music, a walk in the park, deep breathing, reading, meditation, or mindfulness can help reduce stress levels.

Take 6 – Calm the Circuits by INNERCISE is quick and works for me.

 

“Your calm mind is the ultimate weapon against your challenges. So relax.”– Bryant McGill
