Maybe this is the case with you; you are unhappy and dissatisfied with yourself and your achievements. You look at yourself and become sad because you aren’t a genius; you were born without any special talents; you are just ordinary; no rich family; no good education. Mediocrity seems to be the measure of your existence. None of your days are note- worthy, except for their sameness and lack of zest. In spite of what your life may look like right now, don’t give up. Don’t be frustrated.
I used to think so about my life too. Nothing about me seem great, I always wondered what impact my life was making. If I was touching any life at all with my messages; if people were ever listening to me. I look at the great names out there inspiring people, the blogs with thousands of followers and readers, the authors whose books have impacted several generations, and I shrink.
“I have said, ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High”. – Psalms 82:6
A god is a genius. God made everyone of us a genius, but its amazing how so many of us are living far below our potentials because we don’t know and do what we want with our lives.
Growing up my parents would always tell me; you have to come tops in class. And when I fail to do so, I would be asked; the boy or girl that came tops, how many heads does he or she have? He is just like you. Yes all the geniuses around aren’t any different from us. They are humans who know what they want to do with their lives and do it. Tiger Woods, Warren Buffett, Bill Gates, Aliko Dangote, Lionel Messi, Christiano Ronaldo, Rafael Nadal…they are expressing their genius. They are living the life they were born to live. They cannot do anything else – little wonder they are so successful!
Folks genius isn’t only found among the great. You have genius in you. You have unique talents, abilities and values that only you can bring into greatness. You have a destiny that only you can fulfil.
Learn how to express your own genius by studying and following these characteristics of people who are expressing their genius today:
1- Passion: they love what they do. Even if they weren’t getting paid, they would do it for free. Ask yourself; What do I love to do? What activities give me satisfaction? What are my hobbies? What is my secret ambition?
2- Talent: people who are expressing their genius are good at what they do. Call it talent, ability, or genius – they’ve got it in them. Ask yourself: What am I good at? What do I get complimented on? Where have I excelled in the past? Where have I been successful?
3- Values: they value what they do. Doing what they do is extremely important to them. Ask yourself: what is important to me? What do I stand for? What won’t I stand for? What would I risk my life for?
4- Destiny: people who are expressing their genius have a sense that they are doing what they were born to do – making their own contribution. They know their destiny. Ask yourself: What was I born to do? What does God want me to do? Where can I make a difference? What is my unique life mission?
So many people have died with their potentials in them because they didn’t know they’ve got it.
Discover your genius and begin expressing it. Don’t die with your song in you!
