Hold a positive thought for 10mins. Let it grow.
In my last post, I talked about your gift and talent in life being something that you can do effortlessly, something that comes naturally to you.
Well, each of us, I believe, has genius-level talent. God given abilities that we just have to tap into.
The main aim of this post is to help you find where your genius is, then it’s up to you to put all your energy into that area, and if you do you will excel, you will be as successful as you want to be.
The main obstacle that you will face in life is being yourself. Surely just being yourself should be easy?
Somewhere along the way, we convince ourselves that we are not good enough, at almost everything. So we try extremely hard to be something that we are not, meaning, we never reach our full potential.
Starting off in life, we have all these dreams and passions, but very often we settle for second best or don’t embrace our natural gifts and abilities at all.
Your friend wants to be an accountant, so you follow them into accountancy, you qualify and earn amazing money. The problem is your a bright, outgoing person and sitting at a desk alone all day doesn’t interest you. So you’re unhappy.
Many people are in similar situations to this example. Living unhappy, with feelings of regret. Feelings that life has passed them by. That they have made too many mistakes.
Not the case. But it will take discipline and courage to make the necessary changes.
First, you have to ask yourself a few questions which I will go over now.
The Genius Zone
Most people are not sure what they are good at or what skills they have. And all the uncertainty is enough to put them off before they even start.
its difficult to believe that we are highly skilled in some area.
I will now share with you some questions to help you find what I like to call your genius Zone, so you have a firm foundation to build upon.
- What holds your attention?
What subjects do you like reading about? What do you like to talk about? What do you like to study?
- What are you interested in?
What topics have you been interested in your whole life? What subjects do you like to search for new information about?
- What absorbs your attention completely?
What can you get completely absorbed in? When you are reading about it, watching documentaries on etc. When you’re talking on this subject hours will pass like minutes.
The answer to these questions is a good indication to your genius zone. The subjects that you’re most passionate about, you will have the most knowledge. Whatever this area is, you must focus on it because this is the area that you will be most creative.
When you discover your genius zone, you will notice that you do not need to learn much in that area. You may need more training to take your knowledge to the next level or maybe a change of job to acquire new experience.
But one or two years developing some skills is nothing compared to a lifetime of unhappiness— if you’re currently on the wrong path in life.
When you’re working in a job that you can share your knowledge and passion about a topic, product, or service, you will be happier, have more energy and have more love for yourself and others.
If this all sounds good, but you don’t know where to start then leave a comment or send me an email on email@example.com, and I will do my best to advise you.
Thanks for reading.
My brother once said to me, “you take your own level of intelligence for granted.”
A man of few words he only said it once but it stuck with me.
The wisdom within them words have been revealing themselves over the last 25 years.
We assume so much. We assume that everyone has the same common sense, empathy, compassion, and faith that we do.
Guess what, they don’t.
From today don’t assume anything. Just because something seems logical to you doesn’t mean that the other person sees your logic. 90% the time they don’t.
So if someone is always annoying you, always seems to do what you asked them not to do. Do not let it stress you out.
Very often they can not see the reasoning behind your words. As my brother said, don’t take your own level of intelligence for granted. Some people are not that intelligent.
Just because someone as a PHD or other fancy letters behind their name does not mean that they view the world the same as you. You may put them on a pedestal because they have a better education.
Yes, education matters but never feel inferior to anyone. Know who you are, a child of God, graced with many talents and abilities.
Never Take Your Level Of Intelligence for Granted
Your mind is unique, you can process information in ways that no one else can. Your life purpose has to be finding out— in what way.
It could be as simple as communication, you might have the ability to instil faith into peoples hearts in a way that no one else can. When you speak others listen.
Don’t hide away from that gift, don’t silence the David that is within you.
Stop 100 people on the street and ask them, “what is your gift, talent or ability?” 99 will say they don’t know, and if that is the case for you.
Let it be your life purpose to find out.
Chances are everyone around you already knows and probably have told you, many times— you’re great with people, a great listener, great with numbers, great with computers, with the written word…
but you have taken your level of intelligence for granted.
Your gift in life is effortless to you, so effortless that you can completely dismiss that gift and spend your entire life unhappy thinking that God forgot about you.
Im telling you today that you were not forgotten, you have seeds of greatness within.
If you’re still unsure what your gift in life is, that you can do effortlessly then you don’t want to miss my next post where I will reveal how to find it, and also what to do so that you can live out your divine destiny.
Until the next time…
Don’t fear failure. Fear being in the exact same place next year. Don’t be held back by indecision, move forward in faith.
Sometimes what we want we must give. Scripture says it better, give and you shall receive.
If you want to be inspired, be an inspiration to someone else.
If you want to be happier, make someone else smile.
In life it’s the simple things that bring us the most joy.
You cant help anyone if you can’t first help yourself. Peace of mind is a priceless commodity.
To heal a wound you need to stop touching it.
Franklin D. Roosevelt the 32nd president of the United States once said: “Nothing in the world is worth having or worth doing unless it means effort, pain, difficulty… I have never in my life envied a human being who led an easy life. I have envied a great many people who led difficult lives and led them well.”
Behind every great work there has been hour and hours of practise. There is no such thing as an over night success.
Now with socail media its hard to get a minute to ourselves. Like anything good there is always a flip side. I found out the other day that smartphones have a section in settings to note the time to speand on app you use.
I don’t use my phone that much and i was shocked. Scrolling has a way of eating time.
We all have things we would like to do, Read more books, keep a journal, have more time to pray or walk in nature. But somehow we never seem to get them done, saying i haven’t got the time or I’m to busy.
It so easy to dismiss the 2 hours in the evening to scroll through Facebook, Instagram or YouTube.
Starve your distractions, feed your focus For the next 7 days and see what fun things you get done?
