Your zone of genius is your unique power. When you operate from your zone of genius, you are in a space from where you hold your unique power to transform to your highest potential effortlessly. Some people discover this zone at an early stage of their life & some do after experiencing certain things in life. Whatever it be, all these experiences are required because it adds up to your story, your unique story that is different, powerful & beautiful in its own way. Only when you embrace yourself, your being without worrying & comparing with what & how the rest is functioning, you are able to step into your zone of genius.
You come to this world with your uniqueness and as you live, you come across many things, experiences that enable you to make certain decisions for yourself; your beliefs are formed, you set your boundaries, your rules to protect you. Nothing is wrong or right in doing so; these all have served you to elevate you to the position that you are in today. However, when you feel that holding on to these conditions aren't helping you to grow to your highest potential, then you need to reconsider these beliefs, thoughts and check if you would like to keep these, twig these or altogether do away with these. The choice is yours. Once you find your zone of genius, you need to keep exploring as to what you are really really good at within that zone. That exploration only will happen when you take actions, do and not just think.
Being ready to try out, succeed, fail, get up and walk in your zone will enable you to get in touch with that treasure that resides in you. Nothing is constant, things change & so do we with time. We change, our skills get polished, we mature and hence growth lies in discovering, re-discovering, walking in that zone with an open mind of exploration & reflection.
We aren't here to prove anything to anyone, but discover that gold in us. We are shrouded by our own shadows. Our job is to keep striving towards discovering the gold in us. Remember if there is shadow, there is gold too. Sadly, without proper guidance, many a times we just tend to believe & see the shadow & give up eventually when we are very near to discovering the gold in us. Gold mine I would say. Yes, each one of you have that. Only if you are willing to explore & dig hard to get access to it.
I invite you to stretch your arms wide open and imagine you inside your zone of genius, your world of uniqueness and feel the goodness. Would you want to struggle for nothing or work towards your path, that zone that you got a feel of? During a mindful leadership program, I came across with this zone of genius phenomenon. I was wondering what was this all about. But, then slowly realized it's beauty. You will feel it when you are at your zone of genius. Trust me.
Discovering your zone of genius is very important for your success & overall happiness. How do you find that, is a great question? Answer is : Effortlessly.
Ask yourself are you really happy being who you are and do you get a sense of inner peace while you are at that space? Are you really happy or just comfortable? Did anyone tell you "wow" for what you did while you felt that you didn't put much effort in doing that? Did anything fall in place without much effort of yours? Then you should take note of that & explore further. That is a probable indication of you being in your zone of genius.
Do what you are great at and soar...
