Sometimes You Must Fail To Succeed Even if you Have ADHD!

Oops! I didn’t do it again. Recently, I wrote a post about one of my greatest phobias. In the post I told you about how I tried to ride a mountainside roller coaster and jumped off when my wife and I reached the top of the mountain just before it could begin to sail back down. It was a big mistake and I totally failed! I silently beat myself up about the failure the entire time that I was climbing back down the mountain. Yes, even as I waved at the people riding up. The people who would succeed where I failed. I told myself I wanted to try again, but I knew if I just hopped back on the roller coaster I would simply do what I’ve done so often before, I’d repeat my mistake. I failed, indeed.

Steve Jobs RIP Dead – ADHD?

Steve Jobs RIP Dead – ADHD?

Dear Steve: We will miss you, the world has lost the ultimate inventor, innovator, and shining light of what can be. You told us to “Think Different” and showed us what was possible if we did.

The Hecklers and Naysayers of People with ADHD – Recognize and Avoid Them!

There’s a downside to ADHD that spirals many of us out of control and that is the power of hecklers and naysayers who will do and say anything and everything to get others to see the worst in themselves, their situation and life in general. You know the one’s I am talking about (hint, they are not those people who see, or point out, the best in you). They are the people who agree with everything you can’t do and explain in every way imaginable, as scientifically, historically and logically possible that because you have ADHD the challenges you face are impossible to overcome, much less to succeed in whatever endeavor you might attempt.    The hecklers and naysayers want you realize that because of ADHD you can’t do anything and because you have ADHD you will never be able to do anything. As a matter of fact, the research suggests you might [...]
