Thank you Jessica McCabe for your Ted Talk, finds out about her, and her patreon which I am proud to say I just joined. www.howtoadhd.com Hello my lovely listeners or readers, this week I have found what I thought was wrong with me for almost all my life. It’s called ADHD, Einstein, J.F.K, Richard Branson, Justin Timberlake, and many others have it, in fact we represent around 3 to 5% of the population. For years I have been suffering from not being able to switch off my brain to sleep, can not keep a day job for long, have impulsive behaviors, not aware of time like most people, able to hyper focus on a task to the point that I forget to eat or drink, procrastinate, start many things and not finish them, be full of ideas, daydream constantly, lose my concentration if some talk to me too slow, being forgetful, and piss a lot of people without realising it. I have sorted myself out on many factors, with meditation, exercise, self improvement, boosting my self esteem, before I actually found out I had ADHD all along. It’s genetics, so you either have or you don’t, it had a massive negative impact in my life, because the system is not made for people with ADHD. I got fired from two schools, teachers always said great potential, can do more but spend his time not paying attention, or making others laugh in class. For years I was told I was stupid, try harder, when I wasn’t my fault, but a condition. If you have too, please do not think it’s a curse, it’s great conditions to have, we are the creators, the doers, the ones that think outside the box, the leaders of this world, because we have so much energy to give, we just learn to canalised it, focus our attention for period of time, use it and give our gift to this world. We do not fit the norm, and we shouldn’t to be and live the rest of people because we can not adapt ourselves, we need to embrace ADHD and concentrate on what we are good at, not we are not capable of doing. I love you all and thank you for following me with my podcast. What helps to turn off that super brain?
