Untapped Brilliance: How to Reach Your Full Potential
as an Adult with ADHD
Control Your ADHD and Reach Your Goals
An ADHD-Friendly Book to Train your Brain
Imagine if you could tame your ADHD. Think what your life would be like if you achieved everything you knew you were capable of.
ADHD can really get in the way of your success. Do any of these sound familiar to you?
- You are constantly running from one thing to the next, and always 10 minutes late.
- You can never find what you need in your clutter and paper piles.
- Even if you do have an uninterrupted hour, your mind can’t focus on that important report work.
- You feel scattered, overwhelmed and anxious.
- You are constantly saying sorry for being late or forgetting something.
- You feel like you are always letting your family and friends down.
When you are always 2 steps behind in your own life, you end up feeling that you are constantly under-achieving. That’s really de-motivating, frustrating and confidence crushing.

Want to know a secret?
Treating your ADHD isn’t complicated, frightening or involve weird ingredients. Everything I share is very simple, and straightforward. In fact, some people think it seems too simple to make a difference. That is, until they try it. Then, they are total converts too. Some people in the media like to use scare tactics, but there is nothing scary here! Plus, anything you might need to buy is affordable and available at your local grocery store. Although you might already have the things sitting in your fridge and bathroom and just haven’t been using them.
Here are the types of things you’ll learn in the book:

Everything is broken down into 11 steps.
When you implement these steps, you peel away all the sabotaging factors that were blocking your success, and you can finally start to reach your potential.
Way back in 2007, I was frustrated because I couldn’t find a straightforward, comprehensive book for adults (not children) with ADHD that I could refer to my clients and blog readers.
I wanted the book to be:
- Easy to read
- Be more than just a description of what Adult ADHD is
- Focus on every aspect of Adult ADHD; not just one. E.g. organizing or nutrition
- Include ADHD-friendly strategies to stop challenges from being problems
When I couldn’t find the book I was looking for, I decided to write it!
Once I had made the decision to write a book, I knew exactly what the content was! It would be the 11 steps of the coaching system I created, and had been using for myself and coaching clients which got such great results.
The 11 steps solve a problem I heard again and again.
‘I have so much potential, but I just can’t seem to achieve what I know I am capable of’.
I could see for myself how amazing each person was. However, their untamed ADHD symptoms were making it hard work just maintaining status quo; let alone any movements forward. In two words, ‘Untapped Brilliance’ describes and positions this beautifully. One reader said that of all the books on ADHD she had read, this one was the first with a positive title.
Since it was first published in 2008, Untapped Brilliance has helped 1000’s of people.
As a first time author, it was hard to release Untapped Brilliance into the world. I was used to interacting with my clients one-on-one; and now, I had to let Untapped Brilliance take over.
Can’t get past the first few pages of a book?
One concern I had was many Adults with ADHD don’t get past the first few pages of the books they buy. Or they get distracted and don’t know what they just read. Untapped Brilliance was written with this in mind so that readers could access the content easily. I have heard over and over again, ‘Jacqui! This is the first book I have ever read cover to cover’.
“Thank you, Jacqui, for speaking my language! Saturday 12:30- I open the book with a feeling of excitement that maybe, just maybe, my life will begin to change. As I read the forwards from others, my excitement builds. I turn to Chapter 1 and before I know it I’m on Chapter 5 (that doesn’t usually happen with me and self-help books. I am constantly re-reading as I get distracted and, when I get to the end of the page; realize I have no idea what I just read!). I actually finished Untapped Brilliance on Sunday!” ~Jeanne 52, Full time Mum
This book is never far from my side
My other concern was that I couldn’t check in with every reader (like I can with clients) to help them implement actions to see results. I hoped readers would keep Untapped Brilliance by their side as a daily reminder to take action and not tucked away on a bookcase. That concern quickly evaporated when I started getting messages like this!
My final concern was a biggie.
Would people get the similar results to my in-person clients?
Again, a huge yes!

“I absolutely love your book! I learned a lot from it. YOU are my ‘go-to’ expert in this domain!” ~Joe Criso, Business owner.
“I can commend the steps described in Jacqueline’s book: they have greatly improved my quality of life, beyond what words can tell…” ~M.L., a 60-year-old Special Education Teacher
“Having read and followed the advice in Untapped Brilliance, I have gone from feeling frustrated and overwhelmed by day to day activities to finally getting my life in order and actually achieving my goals. Buy this book! It will change your life!!” ~40-year-old H.R Director
Spouses of adults with ADHD also found Untapped Brilliance useful.
“As a spouse of someone with ADD, I found this book very interesting and informative. It was helped me to better understand ADD, and how I can help my husband.” ~49-year-old female Manager
Untapped Brilliance also is a hit with adults that didn’t have ADHD or even ADHD tendencies.
“An easy to read step-by-step guide on how to lead a more productive & enriched life. With chapters on how goal setting, connecting with others, having fun, better nutrition & exercise (to name but a few) help us to lead a more fruitful life. The message this book conveys is as applicable to those Adult with ADHD or without!” ~Lisa M. USA (39-year-old female without ADHD)
Untapped Brilliance is available in paperback or digital version.
