As I mentioned, everyone is different so here are a few options to get at your strengths. Pick whichever speaks to you!
Option #1: VIA Character Strengths
If highlighting your strengths is new to you I recommend taking the VIA character strengths survey to find out your strengths! Funny tidbit: It is very common for those of us with ADHD to have “Self-Regulation” as one of our weaker strengths. Self-regulation and perseverance are my weakest strengths… maybe Dr. Barkley is onto something! I would love to know – what is your greatest strength and where does self-regulation land for you?

Option #2: Start a success journal for yourself.
You will begin to see your natural strengths shine and see common themes within your successes. These are your optimal strengths that you can use for tough situations!
