If you think you have an addictive personality, I will start by saying that yes, the fact that you’re asking yourself that question means you probably do.
Do you think you might have ADD or ADHD too?
I see these two “disorders” as linked.
BUT, what I ALSO say is,
WHAT IF…Having an addictive personality can be a really cool and good thing when acted on positively?”
There is such a negative connotation associated with having an addictive personality and ADD. I see it differently.
Addictive personalities Could Actually Be CELEBRATED!!!
Think of it this way:
You have the POTENTIAL to focus so passionately on just ONE thing, and when you get bored of THAT you go get crazy excited for another thing!
You are not afraid to take leaps from one experience to the next. You are not afraid of change! ONE OF PEOPLE’S BIGGEST SOURCES OF ANXIETY IS PROVOKED BY CHANGE! YOU ARE UNIQUE! DON’T WASTE YOUR GIFT!!
Yeah ok, but why do I NEED and WANT to go from one thing to another all the time; why is it never good enough?”
You are looking for an altered state of consciousness–another way to feel good and feel better now.
I mean, everyone wants to and deserves to feel good. It’s one of our humanly rights!!
SO ROCK ON!!
Here’s the catch:
The negative connotation of addictive personality comes in when the tools you use to feel better affect your emotional, spiritual, financial, AND physical health negatively–like can be done with drugs, alcohol, shopping, the internet, sex, food, etc.
WHAT IF…you channeled that same energy into doing positive activities that actually enhance your health and wellbeing?
Instead of fighting your addictive personality, your ADD,
Celebrate your honest desire to feel good and live a meaningful life now.
I’ve heard of so many entrepreneurs and artists who claim that they have ADD or suffer from an addictive personality, but if they didn’t have those characteristics, they would not have the ability to work towards success to diligently and brilliantly!
ACKNOWLEDGE that your addictive tendencies can actually SERVE you in living your life the way YOU want to live it.
ALLOW yourself to look for new, healthy, sustainable ways to achieve the SAME effect, the same FEELINGS, organically–meaning without shitting away your money, your health, and your precious well-being.
If you are ready to rid of the unhealthy addictive tendencies you have now,
If you are ready to find out what makes YOU come alive and FEEL GOOD ORGANICALLY,
If you are ready to start living your life’s purpose and making your work your canvas,
Through internal and external work, your dreams are MORE than possible.
