#37: ADHD and what it means to be different & thrive with Joy | Guest Marc Cordon

In this episode, I talk with Marc Cordon, MPH - Positive Psychology Coach, who shares his story about how he was always different than the rest, from his ethnicity all the way to his brain wiring. He shares how he went from musician to higher education and then into multicultural work.

Marc shares from the heart and positive psychology changed his view on social justice and to do it from a place of Joy.

When you listen to this episode, remember this is a person who was diagnosed with many conditions such as Identity struggle, Mood disorder, anxiety, ADHD, Bipolar, Depression but Marc did not let these labels get in the way of searching and tapping into his highest purpose. He shares how he figured out what brings him joy. He is super clear of his values and that is one of the key steps in finding your purpose and happiness.

At about 19:00 min mark, he shares a few tips on how he manages his business to stay focused and grounded.

Towards the end of the talk, he goes into what toxic positivity means and how our emotions have a purpose be it anger or joy, and why it is important to pay attention to all of our emotions.

I could have talked to Marc for hours, it was my pleasure to listen to his story and I am delighted to hear how he is able to manage his brain while following his purpose.

As Marc mentioned he is running a program right now on Joy Revolution, head over to get the details
