Episode 35: Seek Discomfort and Achieve Your Dreams – even with ADHD, with Abdul Haseeb

If you’ve been struggling with organization, planning and getting stuff done, while having ADHD, this episode is for you! If you want so new fresh perspective on what you can do to challenge yourself and grow, so you achieve your dreams, listen in. In this episode, I chat with Abdul Haseeb, Pakistan’s first ADHD coach.

Haseeb shares his personal ADHD journey and how 17 years of direct experience and in-depth research motivated him to become the first coach for people with ADHD in Pakistan. We chat about how executive functions are affected by ADHD and about the trauma and stigma people with ADHD often go through.

In this conversation, Haseeb sheds light on that people with ADHD are perfectly capable of being productive, and having the energy to pursue their passions and work on their dreams. Haseeb shares how understanding one’s neurodiversity helps to lift the shame and guilt that might have been piling up for years, offering us his examples of his healing through wildlife conservation.

We chat about the importance of having support systems that allow you to show up at your best and Haseeb shares his personal examples: supportive parents, his favourite planner, Qigong or running. Haseeb also talks about his personal life philosophy which is about actively seeking discomfort and rejection so we get out of our comfort zones, challenge ourselves and grow, sharing his hilarious stories on how he challenges himself.

If you want to get inspired, whether you have ADHD or not, and get some refreshing perspectives on how to go about your life goals, pop in those headphones, listen to this episode and choose to Screw Being Unhappy, even if it is one tiny step a day!
