Years ago, my kids talked me into watching an episode of ‘SPONGE BOB’. In this episode, Sponge Bob was having a dilemma for which he did not know quite what to do. His friend Patrick, a starfish (who is not the brightest of species) came up with a solution. When Sponge Bob heard it, he said to Patrick “Patrick your genius is showing”!
Out of embarrassment, Patrick put his hands in front of himself thinking that he said something else was showing J. Afterwards, Patrick understood had just happened and he felt proud that he was apart of the solution by allowing his “GENIUS” to show. So, I ask… how many of us are hiding our genius? Many of us have within us our “Genius”, but how many of us really know what it is.
I believe that there is a giftedness that we all have to make a difference in the world. Nobody can do what you do like you do it! This is called your “Genius”. And when your genius is working it is your “brilliance” on display. Knowing that you are exceptional at something is what sets you apart from all the rest. It is the uniqueness that is in your DNA that causes you to rise to the top of your game and become the best at what you have been given. Maybe its time to show the world what you are working with!
When we sit back and take inventory of our lives, we may discover that we have been functioning in our ORDINARY instead of in our EXTRAORDINARY. This is what has kept us living with a predictable and familiar existence of ourselves. Why not breakout of the mundane, routine, and average way of doing life and allow ourselves to be stretched beyond what is common to what is uncommon. Aren’t you sick of the same ole, same ole? Something new has to happen and that something is locked down on the inside of you. Our Genius is available to us to show us a better way of living and even how to make our living.
Recently, our oldest daughter who is in college wanted us to send her some money for something that she said that she needed. I begin to name all the gifts and talents that she has been given which is the “Genius” in her to use to create the wealth that she needs. In other words, I told her to work her Genius because it is her MONEY MAKER! My daughter is an actress and has imitated voices of various characters all her life. She is also a film major and is an incredible videographer. She was amazed at what she had within her power to do to meet her own need and to allow the entrepreneur in her to come forth. She began doing voiceover work as well as shooting, directing, producing, and editing films for music video’s, and weddings. Perhaps, you are sitting down on your wealthy place and don’t know it. Get up and shake your “moneymaker” and watch the Genius inside of you produce in you and for you what was already yours to have.
REFLECTION: Your wealthy place is within you. The bible states “But you shall remember the Lord your God, for it is He who gives your power to get wealth, that He may establish His covenant which He swore to your fathers, as it is this day (Deuteronomy 8:18). Use your keys of faith and unlock the treasures of your Genius to behold all that you are gifted with to bless yourself and others.
SUCCESS ACTION: List all the gifts/talents that you have and start to use them towards your highest good. Let the remarkable you stand out!
