6 Best Tips to Visualise Success for ADHD Moms

Life as a mom is a whirlwind of chaos, joy, and endless to-do lists. Throw ADHD into the mix, and you’ve got a unique set of challenges that can make reaching your goals feel like a never ending battle. But fear not, supermom! Being able to visualise success for you can be a game-changer, helping you navigate the craziness with focus and purpose. It definitely helped me to stay focused on my goal. In this article, we’ll explore how we as ADHD moms can harness the power of visualization to conquer daily hurdles and turn dreams into reality.

The ADHD Mom’s Rollercoaster Ride

Living with ADHD as a mom often feels like riding a rollercoaster blindfolded. One moment, you’re hyper-focused and soaring through tasks; the next, you’re stuck in a loop of distractions or your executive dysfunction is not making you take the next step. Visualisation becomes your secret weapon, providing a roadmap to navigate the twists and turns of your unique journey. It definitely helped me to achieve my goals, as seeing my goals always made me believe that I could achieve them.

ADHD and the Art of Picturing Success

The ADHD brain is a powerhouse of creativity. Embrace that creativity by painting a vivid mental picture of your success. See the details, feel the emotions, and let your imagination run wild. This isn’t just daydreaming; it’s creating a personalized success movie that you play in your mind. I did my first vision board when I was doing my higher studies. I had failed two exams and was contemplating on quitting my studies. I drew up a vision board with the things I wanted to do in life. I hung it up near my study table and stared at it every time I lost interest in working on one of my subjects. I aced all my CIMA exams then on, even the ones with pass rates below 50%. Ever since, I have believed in the power of vision boards.
