Have you often stood in awe at the accomplishments of others – sportspeople, singers, artists, business people, inventors etc and comment that they are so talented, gifted and natural at what they do? Then you might compare yourself to them and say one of 2 things – ‘I could never do that, they were born with that talent, I don’t have those gifts’ OR ‘I’m so inspired by what they did, I wonder if I could do something similar.’
“Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by it’s ability to climb a tree, it will live it’s whole life believing that it is stupid.” Albert Einstein
I couldn’t agree more. I believe everyone is born with unique gifts, some people discover their talents and gifts early on in their life, hone in on their genius within, craft it and master it more and more. And the vast majority of people go through their lives, not really ‘tuned in’ to their gifts and die with their music still within them.
- Do you feel that you could be more, do more and create more?
- What if you believed that you were a genius?
- What if you actually tapped into your true genius and gifts, how would your life look like then?
- Would you actually then follow your dreams and passions in life?
These questions remind me of the film ‘Limitless’ in which Bradley Cooper takes a pill which allows him to utilise 100% of his brain.
Rather than taking a pill as a solution, what if you ‘tapped in’ to your brain, your body and being and BECAME truly limitless, invincible, fearless and a genius who had the courage to go out and pursue your dreams, get back up when you encounter setbacks, learn and grow from your challenges and keep going until you achieved your dreams and goals.
How would you feel then?
Really it comes down to a choice. A choice in that moment to give it a go, to FEEL invincible, a genius and to hold strong on your vision no matter what your current circumstances are demonstrating.
Believe you can, and you will
If you feel you’re unsure of what your strengths/talents/gifts are, then look at what you love to do, the things that come naturally to you, that you wake up every morning dreaming about and you can’t wait to start.
That dream of yours, don’t talk yourself out of starting it. Sometimes we let FEAR and our negative self talk get in our way, of growing into our greatness, probably because we’ve been conditioned throughout our lives, heard NO so many times, that by the time we’re adults we lose the ‘vibe’, the desire to give it a go, the ‘fearless’ attitude we had when we were kids.
Sometimes you’ve just got to ‘feel the fear and do it anyway’. The world needs YOU and YOUR talents. The dream that you have inside of you, it’s time. It’s time for you to shine, and bring it out into the world.
You have this. Believe you can and you will.
Wish It … Dream It … Do It!
