Attention Deficit Disorder, or ADD for its acronym, is a label of lack and dysfunction by society. Just as everyone else, ADDers have their strengths and weaknesses in character, personality and traits. One such gift, usually not recognized or valued as one, is the gift of storytelling. Storytelling, not in the sense of spinning a yarn, even though they can do that just as well.
Storytelling in the sense of being able to naturally attach energy to words that grab hold of their listeners and stop time. People cherish listening to them and hold onto every single syllable. It doesn’t matter what the topic as long as it’s something the ADDer understands and believes.
There isn’t a survey available that I can quote on this enlightenment. What I do have is 55 years of living with this gift and no conscious awareness of its value until just a few years ago. Alone, I struggled with all its deep crevices, developing new solutions, to find the path on how it intertwines with my life purpose. This new journey gives me an excitement that jumps me out of bed in the morning euphorically alive with determination to share the gift.
Included in these years, and for the last five, through my coaching profession, I’ve attracted others looking for these same answers. I still continue to watch them bloom as I share the keys on how they too can use their gift to provide prosperity and abundance to themselves and the world.
Do you relate to this or have a friend or customer that seems to possess this gift? An ADD diagnosis not required. Give them, or you, the gift of recognition. Take note when it occurs and encourage them, or yourself, to embrace this valuable gift. By sharing this recognition you help them begin to trust in its value. When they begin to trust, practice and refine, it opens their creativity value and it will naturally begin to explode into the world. The move director, Steven Spielberg did and remember all the joy the world has experienced because he did.
These gifted people normally are natural born writers, speakers and teachers. Their sensitivity to the universe’s energy many times make them suppress this gift under the guise of perfectionism. Held under the water for so long, their courage ball can’t float to the surface and discover its true freedom. In any case, these endowed people need volumes of encouragement and strong feelings of love and understanding. When met, it automatically transitions into new beliefs, courage, and self-love. And, of course, success. They empower the world to be a better place. And all by acknowledgment and use of their gift.
