Apparently we all have a Zone of Genius. It is the space where our genius comes alive. You could say it is where your life purpose shines through. It is where you are in harmony with your innate potential.
Last article we looked at how we can harbor an internal setting that keeps us limited. Today we will look at one powerful leap towards raising the bar.
In Hendricks's book the Big Leap he identifies four zones we can operate through:
This can be really hard if you are floating happily in Excellence land. It feels good to stay there because you get recognition easily and people love that you are excellent at what you do. Same with Competence land.
Decades ago I had quit an administrative job as a Registrar and Admissions Director. It was where I excelled and I was asked to come back on multiple occasions. It was so tempting, yet I knew it was not my genius work. Coaching was my genius work. Taking abstract concepts and breaking them down into small easy to digest strategies was my genius work. I'm so grateful I said no, or I wouldn't be bringing you fun and empowering resources each week. So much more fun than crushing data points!
So, I'll ask you. Do you know what your Genius work is? Are you living there now? How often do you visit your Genius and allow it to bring you towards new important areas in your life?
