What’s Your New Story for the New Year?**
What’s Your New Story for the New Year?
What’s the theme of your story going to be this year?
You are probably aware that the power of your mind can either propel or prohibit you from taking focused, forward- moving action.
You are probably aware of what positive messages can do for your brain. Yet, most of you never go to a “proactive place” because
you have established strong patterns that you actually feel comfortable living with every day. You feel safe with the story that you
have created, even though you know it does not serve you well.

Rituals that Rev Up My Writing Engine **
Part of the journey with my own ADHD was discovering specific rituals I do when I want to ignite my internal writer. One of them is exercise. It has a way of slowing down the velocity of my thoughts, especially when I am having a brainstorming session that usually results in a bombardment of creative ideas that can be very difficult to process.

Identify Your Strengths and Make Them Stronger**
By David Giwerc, MCC, Founder and President, ADD Coach Academy
We live in a performance-oriented world. It’s also a world where too much emphasis is placed on identifying a person’s weaknesses and then focusing on improving the performance of those weaknesses. This negative focus can take its toll on a person’s innate strengths, which may be downplayed or overlooked in the quest for “improvement.”

Introduction: ADHD Coaching
Hello my name is David Giwerc. I am the Founder and President of the ADD Coach Academy, http://www.addca.com. Since becoming a coach in 1994, I have been privileged and honored to witness thousands of adults and families with AD/HD take amazing leaps and bounds to become more fulfilled human beings.
This only can begin to happen when you become educated about your own ADHD. I don’t mean a general, textbook education of ADHD with medical language about the brain and the corresponding imbalance of neurochemicals. Unfortunately, that is how most health care professionals may have explained ADHD to you.
The kind of education that will empower people with ADHD to move forward is the kind of customized, individualized education that encourages you to explore and discover the specific situations where your own impairing challenges (inattention, impulsivity and hyper activity) of ADHD have impeded your ability to move forward.
To find out how you can get educated about your own ADHD in powerful proven ways, please go to Simply ADHD Program
