Are you your own worst critic? Worried you’ll never be successful with ADHD?
Deep down do you believe you can never do enough or be enough?
Many adults with ADHD see themselves that way.
I don’t believe that for a minute.
I see your potential, and the gift you are to the world.
To nudge you to see yourself differently, too, I’d like to share a poem that inspires me each time I read it.
Written by 13th century poet, Rumi, it seems to be written especially for adults with ADHD.
Take this poem to heart. Because it’s true.
You were born with potential,
You were born with goodness and trust,
You were born with ideals and dreams,
You were born with greatness,
You were born with wings,
You are not meant for crawling, so don’t.
You have wings,
Learn to use them and fly.
You are more than your ADHD. And, you have the right to be successful.
Celebrate ADHD’s gifts, because there are gifts. Can’t find any? Look deeper.
Embrace ADHD’s challenges. If distractions and disorganization keep you crawling, do what you need to do to strengthen your wings so you can fly.
Your energy and ideas are needed. Let your goodness loose in the world.
May your life be filled with peace, prosperity, and abundant good health. Especially in these difficult times.
To Your ADHD Success,
