At 8 years old, I got diagnosed with ADHD.
I felt broken.
Burdened by a “brain’ that would surely screw me out of any type of meaningful contribution in the world.
Every day was a crapshoot.
Without knowing how I’d “show up” on any given day, setting goals (and pursuing them) felt like a fool’s game — and when I’d inevitably fail, it only supported my belief that I was messed up beyond repair.
Over the next decade, I spiraled into a deep depression…
… culminating in a tipping point where if I didn’t learn how to turn my “curse” into a superpower, it would literally kill me.
This week’s video is all about my “homemade” prescription for how I naturally turned ADHD into my superpower… and ultimately a catalyst for my legacy as an investor and entrepreneur.
While I don’t endorse a medication-free approach to ADHD, I encourage you to test any combination of these “ingredients” to see what moves the needle for you.
And of course… make sure to consult with your physician ;)
At a high-level, the 9 ingredients of my “natural” ADHD meds are:
The first 8 can literally be implemented this week — and stack upon each other to exponentially increase your ability to focus, be productive, and move your mission forward with confidence.
Number 9 will take a bit more time, but I believe is where ADHD truly becomes a superpower.
When you literally can’t will yourself to focus on certain tasks, it works as a forcing function to get support and leverage other people’s skills faster than you otherwise would’ve.
Whether you’re looking to get off ADHD meds… or simply have a mission that your brain feels incapable of keeping up with, it’s my hope that these 9 steps help serve you in an incredible, life-changing way.
