RESTORE

RESTORE your core of its struggles.
There are 2 types of struggles:

Skye Baloo Carnegie, ADHD, Autism, HSP, ADHD Young Adult, ADHD Teen, ADHD Teenager

Being overwhelmed by the physical senses and emotions:

People with ADHD are more sensitive than most to sound, touch, different foods etc. These are sensitivities they are born with.

Emotionally: You’ll probably have noticed that for those with ADHD, when things are good, they’re really good, and when they’re bad it feels like the world is about to end.

It’s this overwhelm which overloads the brain and affects focus, memory, attention, etc.

This heightened sensitivity will always be present but can be accommodated.

Struggles with society and the people in it:

This is the result of growing up in an environment that is always overwhelming, can feel hostile, in which the child feels ‘less than’.

These struggles are external and can be overcome.

RADIATE

It’s important to focus on your brilliance, gifts, and talents rather than your struggles.

3 ways you RADIATE:

PASSION

Yep, raw PASSION!

There will be so many things that bring your child joy, laughter, and wonder.

Sometimes their struggles are so hard it’s difficult for them to see past them, but they’ll always have a heightened awareness of the wonder of life. This is an incredible gift.

CONTRIBUTION

Their purpose

People with ADHD have an unusual drive and are aware that they have a special purpose (even if they can’t define it)

They may need guidance and focus to embrace their gifts and talents, and not lose their way.

Many famous people have ADHD such as Richard Branson, Ty Pennington, Justin Bieber, Leonardo Da Vinci, Beethoven, etc.

BRILLIANCE

Those with ADHD have many gifts, talents, and areas of brilliance. The ability to play music or draw without being taught. Magnificent memories. An aptitude for math, etc.

These areas of brilliance may be the same or different to their passion and purpose.

For example, a brilliant artist may want to paint as his/her life purpose, or they may prefer it as a hobby.

It’s vital to harness brilliance rather than focusing on the struggles.

HOW TO USE THE 3 R’s

Instead of being confused by what ADHD is, when you have this framework of how the 3R’s come together, life makes sense.
