Welcome to the thirteenth Ask Dr B episode, and the thirtieth 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 get SO excited to create episodes that you my listeners ask for. You send me questions or issues that you are struggling with and ask for insights and solutions, which results in inspiration and another great episode. You have no idea how happy that makes me; or maybe you do.
Based on Monday’s episode 029, I hope you all get just how important it is that we develop executive function skills; just not something we should skip over or take lightly. If you haven’t listened to that episode yet, I recommend you do so you’ll understand what I mean. There’s no short cut here. These skills are the pre-requisites to the more advanced skills we need to learn and master in adulthood; and we can’t jump to advanced skills without the basic foundational ones in place. Correction…we can jump there, but we can’t stay there because we don’t have what is needed to succeed.
And since helping you to shape new behaviors is part of my intention here with the stories and action steps for you to take, I want to remind you that today’s success or lack of it started last night. That’s right. 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 a successful day. 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 behavior and way of thinking. 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 Stories We Tell Ourselves, Low Self-Esteem & Self-Sabotaging Behaviors. A huge thanks to Britt, in CA 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!
Thanks for Listening!

Ratings and reviews are extremely helpful and greatly appreciated! They do matter in the rankings of the show, and I read each and every one of them.
I’ve been asked a few times to explain exactly “how” to rate the show and write a thoughtful review on iTunes as it seems to be confusing to many of you, and that you’d really like to do so but haven’t been able to yet. So, here’s what you do from a computer and it should be fairly similar on your mobile device.
Anyways, that’s my mini-tutorial on how to rate the show and write a thoughtful review, since I’ve been asked a few times now. I hope the little mini-tutorial is helpful to you.
