What were the steps leading up to your diagnosis?

I was diagnosed at a very young age. Teachers complained about me and my parents wondered why I was so hyperactive.

What lifestyle changes have you needed to make?

Life was very difficult for me. I had to have a lifestyle coach and mentors who were very familiar with ADHD to help me jump over those hurdles.

What's your advice to someone else living with ADHD?

My advice is be yourself, be an outside thinker, and to see ADHD as a gift and not a curse.


Who has been there for you? How?


The most important people who have been there have been God, my mother, and a few friends who really care.

What accomplishment are you proud of?

An accomplishment I’m very proud of is that I have written and self published a motivational and inspirational self-help book based on my life experiences and challenges with ADHD. It looks at how I was viewed by society and what I've done to overcome all the challenges and limitations that society tried to place on my life.

See ADHD as a gift and not a curse.

About Robert Smith

My Story: Robert Smith

I was born and raised in High Point, North Carolina and diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder at a very young age. Growing up in the inner city, I endured many hardships, including being denied job opportunities and being shunned, ridiculed and tormented on a daily basis due to the disorder – something that continued into my adulthood. Despite everything I’ve faced, I’ve kept my faith and turned to God for help.

In January 2013 I was baptized, and from that point on my mission has been to inspire and bring hope to many people from all walks of life, and encourage them to reach their full potential despite roadblocks, setbacks, hardships, limited thinking, and circumstances.
