7 Major Concerns For People Living With ADD - ADHD, Frank Coppola, new yorkI have a saying, “The More You Know The More You Grow.” I believe that a person living with ADD’s major issue is not knowing they have ADD. When they are properly diagnosed, there is a tremendous sense of relief – one that produces alternate moods of joy and upset. At this point we need more than just good information; we need a “re-education.”  We literally need to learn how to live in a non-ADD friendly world knowing we have ADD.

So the key to our personal and professional growth is learning how to learn, learning and then putting into action what we’ve learned. This re-education or better still transformation of our point of view about ADD is critical to our success.  This is one of the primary reasons to associate yourself with positive thinking people living with ADD.  By doing so it can increase the quality of your life in so many ways.   I am passionate about people understanding the enormous opportunities and possibilities of ADD. As part of the re-education process, we need to isolate those areas that time after time hinder our success.  I’ve done quite a bit of research and I’ve found that there are, with slight variations, seven challenges consistent for people living with ADD.

I believe this is so for people with or without ADD as well but clearly, its prominence is felt with ADDer’s.  Many of the other ADD challenges fall under these categories as well. They are:

  1. Procrastination
  2. Organization
  3. Time Management
  4. Money
  5. Relationship
  6. Career/Work
  7. Focus

Digging deeper, I’ve found the underlying issue is a lack of self-esteem due to these challenges over one’s entire life. Is this so for you? With re-education and ADD coaching transformation is possible.  The benefits of this transformation are an enormous increase in self-esteem and self-worth.  The result is improved health and well-being.  Not bad right?
