How to Build Resilience: Quarters of Encouragement

The secret to success, especially for those of us with ADHD, seems to be resilience. It doesn’t matter how many times we fail, as long as we get back up. There are lots of ways to build resilience, but encouragement is one of the easiest and most powerful. Whether you or your ADHDer are struggling with grade school, friends, relationships, college or career, here are some ways to use “quarters” of encouragement to build the resilience necessary to keep bouncing back.
