Welcome to the eleventh Ask Dr B episode, and the twenty-sixth episode overall of Harness Your ADHD Power, a podcast show I created to explore the many facets of adult life with ADHD and how you can learn to harness your personal ADHD power to become unstoppable.

I’m so glad you could join me today for my podcast show.  I’ve changed things up a bit again, so you don’t get into a rut and stop paying attention in the moment because you anticipate what’s coming next.  A little newness keeps things fresh and lively.  Plus, this is good training in case you are one to jump to conclusions or assumptions and miss something important; wouldn’t want that to happen to you.

Another common trait is being very curious; in other words, having lots and lots of questions!  That’s definitely me!!  Probably you too!  However, you might be a bit shy (or not) about making your questions known, especially if asking lots of questions was a problem for others when you were growing up.  In fact, they might have even said to you, “You never stop!  You are always asking questions!  Aren’t you ever satisfied?”  They might have said these things like it was you that had the problem, instead of it being a problem they had with your voracious appetite to know and learn and make sense of things.  Nothing wrong with that appetite!!

Did you know that today’s success started last night?  Seriously, it did.  If you got a good night’s sleep, felt rested when you woke up this morning and were excited about your day, then you’ve set yourself up for success.  If you let yourself stay up late again, because you “felt like it” and didn’t gently and lovingly escort yourself to bed, then you’ve got some work to do around that.  With our fast-paced brains, we definitely need our sleep!

My VERY curious mind is always wondering what the #1 biggest struggle or frustration is for you right now, so I can help you with it.  I wake up each day wondering that, so I can direct my energy to the solutions you need.  I really want to know; I do.  The thought of millions of adults with ADHD suffering every day is a painful thought to me, especially when I have answers and solutions that could ease your pain.

In this episode, I respond to topics about issues or challenges you experience as an adult living with ADHD, and offer you hope.  Today's topics are Making Amends, Not Compromising Your Well-Being & Completing Important Tasks.  Thank you to the anonymous listeners for today's topics.

And remember to pay attention to your WINS!!  Look for them, acknowledge them, celebrate them in a full-hearted way!  Exaggerate your emotions and feel the rush of excitement of having done something special and worthy of celebrating.  You can even celebrate YOU!

Developing your Executive Function Skills and shifting your limiting beliefs is the fastest and most effective way to overcome ADHD limitations, find focus, gain confidence, and newfound freedom in your life!

My mission is to put an end to the worldwide needless suffering of adults with ADHD and those with under-developed Executive Function Skills - whether from ADHD, chronic depression or anxiety, trauma, addictions, or chronic illnesses.  And, you don't need a formal diagnosis to know you need help developing these executive function skills in order to greatly reduce your suffering.
