The Self Esteem comes from successes.

And here’s the challenge… ADDers often dismiss their successes because certain things come easily to us.

I knew that the number one fear people have is speaking in public. Yet I was acting, doing shows, performing, giving speeches…

And it seemed like no big deal.

But it is.

Try asking someone who you trust to tell you things they like about you. “What are my strengths?” “What am I good at?” “What do you admire about me?” Sometimes this can backfire, especially if you ask someone who is pissed at you. But mostly, when I have done this, I got great feedback and lots of compliments and even suggestions on where to improve. Or where to stop trying so hard or worrying so much.

The other reason we may not notice our successes is because in the areas of life that aren’t working, we are getting yelled at, complained about, made fun of, nitpicked, reminded, nagged, dumped on or blamed for.

Know what I mean?
