“I’ve always been very hopeful which I guess isn’t strange coming from me. I don’t want to call myself an optimist. I want to say that I’ve always been full of hope. I’ve never lost that. I have a lot of hope for this country and for the entire world. . .”
Steven Spielberg. I don’t know where to start. He is an amazing man, he is a pioneer, he is a dreamer and he is a dream giver! In looking up people with ADHD, I keep finding Steven Spielberg’s name. It would not surprise me in the least if it is true that he is an Adder. No name in Hollywood is as well known as Spielberg’s. The man sure dreams and creates like one of us! However, I must say something as I write these Adder quotes: In using quotes from individuals I do not mean to confirm or deny that these people have ADD or ADHD. With that said, isn’t it inspiring to read their words, because with certainty all the people I have quoted due indeed display characteristics of Adders.
Steven Spielberg’s said he has always been very hopeful. I can personally vouch that being hopeful is extremely constructive and positive for one’s mindset. Whenever I want something, anything—I hope for it! Somehow just being hopeful is therapeutic to me, it gives me the feeling that things are possible, it fills me with positive vibrations and ever so important enthusiasm. Yes, hope brings to me enthusiasm and optimism. I guess, if you wanted to, you could call hope my form of prayer. When we pray, we ask and with faith we are filled with hope, belief and a calmness of reassurance. That’s what I believe. No matter how farfetched or seemingly ridiculous something might be I always utter the words “I hope.” And you know what—it works. Things don’t always come out the way I expect or originally wanted, but they do always come out for the best! That’s what I believe, that’s what I have learned to hope for with every fiber of my being.
Steve Spielberg started dreaming at a very early age and made amateur movies with his friends. This goes to show that it is very important for an Adder to follow his or her talents, creative ideas and allow the dreams to come alive. Some might say dreaming is for kids and that Steven Spielberg never grew up! I have read countless times that even adult Adder’s have a presence about them that is immature and childlike—what’s wrong with that? I don’t ever want to grow up; I want to keep dreaming, creating and keep my hopes alive!
“I dream for a living.”
“When I grow up… I still want to be a director.”
Spoken like a true Adder!
