This Business Mogul Argues That Having ADHD Is A Gift. Here’s Why

READ THE FULL VIDEO TRANSCRIPTION BELOW:

Many people become distraught when they suspect they may have attention-deficit disorder (ADD) or attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). But what if an ADD or ADHD diagnosis could be a blessing? I’m Kyle Kittleson. This is your MedCircle Weekly News.

Both attention-deficit disorder and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder affect someone’s ability to focus and cause hyperactivity and impulsiveness. Forbes.com recently suggested a new way of looking at an ADD or ADHD diagnosis. Instead of viewing it as a disability, what if you looked at it as a gift?

Some of the most successful people in the world are self-diagnosed with ADD or ADHD. For example, Billionaire Richard Branson. Although focus may be limited, Branson has adapted.

The article explains,

...Branson has learned that focusing on what matters most, without the constraints allowed by a more linear or “processed” manner of thinking ideas through, actually rests as his key advantage in life. It's an advantage presented by his learning disability.

The article continues to consider these advantages of an ADD or ADHD diagnosis:

  1. They excel in unstructured situations and conversations.
  2. They tend to be more intuitive.
  3. They tend to be much more creative.
  4. They take risks.”

Regardless, there are lots of treatment options for ADD and ADHD and it all starts with in-depth education on the topic. Check out the MedCircle original series with Dr. Sportelli, Navigating the Ambiguity of ADHD.

I'm Kyle Kittleson and remember - whatever you're going through - you got this.
