Hey ADDers! So glad you could join me for today’s podcast episode. I’ve talked a lot about the challenges of adult life with ADHD, including Executive Function Deficits, and I’ve offered you lots of action steps to take. I’ve also talked about you as the “human being” and not the “human doing.” I got to thinking that I haven’t talked about Strengths, or rather “your strengths” yet and so today’s the day for that. I remember this information was important to me years ago and perhaps it will be important for you as well.
First, a little about what’s right with you. Each of you came to this lifetime with gifts and strengths. Whether you appreciate or value your gifts and strengths is a different issue; however, you have gifts and strengths. That said, accepting what your gifts and strengths are and working with them seems like the best road to personal happiness and success. And I don’t mean accepting with resignation or resentment. Look at your gifts and strengths with a sense of admiration and start wondering where and how you can utilize them. At least for the time being, stop longing for what you don’t have and start appreciating what you do have. It’s the only way I know of that you’ll be able to shift your mindset so you can truly start wondering where and how you can best utilize them.

In this episode, I’m going to be taking a look at The VIA Classification of Strengths and helping you to see what’s right with you so you can leverage that for a happier and more productive life.
You'll learn about:
In the program, you’ll learn from my 30+ years of experience in weekly coaching calls, workshops, and a private forum space for deep personal work with other like-minded adults where you have access to me 6 days a week for support, solutions and accountability. I don’t believe in Band-Aids that will only disappear down the road. I believe in helping you move from stuck to unstoppable by getting to whatever you’re missing and need to learn. We’ve all had a belly full of judgment, criticism and punishment, whether it’s come from others or ourselves. I encourage you to break free of that life and join us for your ADDventures in Achievement™. Until then, become part of the Facebook community I created, Living Beyond ADHD, where I generally go live for Q & A about your most pressing issues as an adult with ADHD.

A Favorite Quote:
Eleanor Roosevelt said, “You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, ‘I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.’ You must do the thing you think you cannot do.” The question I have for you at this point of our journey together is, “Can you go to the mirror and look your fears in the face, and do what you think you cannot do?” I hope so. It’s totally worth it!!
