Adult ADD - A "Disorder or a Secret of Success?

By Ray Smith

According to the new book The DaVinci Method (, the symptoms of Adult ADD are really the symptoms of abundant energy and creativity. The author, Garret LoPorto, points out that the vast majority of wildly successful entrepreneurs, great leaders, innovators, artists and trail-blazers, all have the "symptoms of adult ADD.

While explaining the genetic cause of ADD/ADHD, the author gives great insight into the so called "disorder and how it can be used as a strength in many situations.

According to the author, "The human genome project says ADD/ADHD is genetic. While only about 10% of the general population has this gene most of the self made rich and famous have the ADD/ADHD gene. Now why is it so that ADD/ADHD helps some people to be extremely successful while most others keep struggling just to survive? The author gives away some startling secrets used by extremely successful people with Adult ADD - People like David Neeleman, the CEO of Jet Blue and Steve Jobs founder of Pixar and Apple.

While most ADD/ADHD therapies try to force people to become more "normal", we need to realize the immense potential that one possesses being ADD/ADHD. The ADD/ADHD gene affects the brain's relationship with dopamine. This difference causes one to crave stimulation, which is achieved through doing things in different way. To satisfy their need for stimulation people take risks, seeks thrill, and becomes bolder. This temperament that comes from the ADD/ADHD gene is similar to the temperament that makes rock stars, inventors, artists, entrepreneurs, leaders and billionaires.

It is imperative for rock stars to be thrill-seeking but how does it help someone to be a billionaire? Well, we all know the key to getting rich is taking risks and the ADD/ADHD gene stimulates a man to take risks. So it is the ADD/ADHD gene that prompts to take the necessary action, which is required for one to be successful. The book goes on with many other insightful explanations and ways How ADD/ADHD can be used to get positive results.

Unfortunately, in our society many very creative and talented people are being labeled "disordered with ADD/ADHD. These are the pioneers of our population - the ones who have the greatest potential to find the cure to cancer, start the next Microsoft, become a great political leader, a great artist or even a rock star.

In attempt to be normal, often people with ADD/ADHD suppress their greatest gift. Why should you struggle to be a 9-to-5-office worker while you have the potential to be the next Bill Gates?

The Author also described the special conditions that are required to unlock the genius behind the ADD/ADHD and these are neither taught nor encouraged in our society. Conditions that bring out the brilliance of those with Adult ADD are often disturbing to the "normal" population because most people lack the energy and creativity required to appreciate this different approach to life.

The only difference between a successful entrepreneur, leader, rock star or artist with ADD/ADHD and another person struggling to get along with his ADD/ADHD traits is that the former have intuitively discovered the secret strength of their temperament and used it to their full potential while the later is trying to get away from it and be a "normal person. But should that be the way?

After reading The DaVinci Method I am convinced it's definitely not. Now I am sure that The DaVinci Method will help so many people on their journey from "disordered" to greatness - the same journey that has been traveled by people like Einstein, Edison, Disney, Churchill, Da Vinci, and Richard Branson - Would you like to take this journey too? Then check out the greatest book I've read in years, The DaVinci Method.

"I want to just say 'WOW!' This collection is probably the best money I ever spent! I've already received many times over in personal enrichment after just 9 days. I've had a past metaphysical background, but even newcomers to this material will really benefit. Thanks again." ~ J.S. (Pennsylvania, USA)

"Just a short note of thanks for the library. I've only had membership for several days now but I already feel this is perhaps the most interesting compilation I have yet seen. Worth far more than the price of admission. The browser linked structure works well and makes it easy to manage such a large storehouse of information. It is rarely that I find something I like as much as this or that I feel strongly enough to write a note like this." ~ P.W. (Minnesota, USA)
