So far, I talked about different aspects of ADHD especially from issue/causes perspective. From now on, I will mostly cover about the real gifts of ADHD. Before I do that, I want to quickly convince that why you would wish you have ADHD personality ;). Here is how I will try to convince you.
World’s top people from entertainment world, authors, inventors and most entrepreneurs have this trait. Don’t believe? Lets look at the below list.
- Walt Disney – The Founder Of Disneyland Walt Disney
- Michael Phelps – Most decorated Olympian ever
- Justin Timberlake – Singer/Actor/Producer/Businessman
- Michael Jordan – The Greatest Of All Time NBA
- Jim Carrey – Has been making us laugh for over two decades
- David Neeleman – Aviation Entrepreneur
- Will Smith – Actor/Producer
- John F. Kennedy – The 35th President Of The United States
- Richard Branson – Business Mogul
- Albert Einstein – Theoretical Physicist
The list goes on…..
Does this mean everyone with ADHD personality will become either Albert Einstein or Richard Branson. Not necessarily and not required. But the key point to remember here is – if you ADHD trait then you would definitely have creative genius like above people depending up which field you are into. May be at different magnitude and level. But for sure you would be different and have very unique talents.
Still not convinced?. Even Seth Godin (search about him if you don’t about him) has ADHD. Listen to below podcast.
Search and read on ” World Famous ADHD People” and you will be amazed to see who all are there in those lists.
First step to recognize about ADHD gifts is – to accept that you are different and having very creative gene !!.
