In Gay Hendrix’s book the Big Leap he talks of our zone of Excellence and our zone of Genius which I believe we All have and if you read on you will see why
A couple of days ago I was attracted to a MindValley Mentorship episode and they were discussing zones of Excellence
They never referred to Gay’s book but the way they were discussing zones of Genius and and zones of Excellence I knew they were referring to the same thing
At first glance if you haven’t read the book you may be thinking they are the same
I know when I first read it I was a little confused
I know also, I need to read it again because my zone of Excellence has changed and I feel if I read it again I’ll see it in a new perspective and that’s partly what inspired me to write this blog post
Like I said I need to read it again so I am paraphrasing and I may have perceived it wrongly but I see our zone of Excellence as anything we are comfortable doing and can do effortlessly and easily therefore we are excellent at it
For me I think we may think of excellence as an elite skill but not the everyday things we do until this morning when I had a Divine Download and the words for this post started flowing through me
Unfortunately I wasn’t in a position to write them down as they flowed so now as I try to get back in to the flow of what I wanted to write it feels a bit clunky which is interesting for 2 reasons
I believe hard work is not necessary if we align and get in to flow or what I now know as level 3 / 4 of the 4 levels of consciousness and if as evidence last night I was getting an evening meal ready and put something on TV to listen to while I was getting ready and I intuitively chose the Jonathan Ross Show and Ed Sheeran was live on Zoom
Jonathan made a comment that Ed could write songs in about 30 minutes and Ed agreed that all the hits he’s written so quick, usually in under an hour and listed Shape of You, Perfect, and 18.
He added I remember them being so quick and barely having to think about it and just typing. If you speak to any writer some songs come out of thin air
I don’t believe they are thin air. As I mentioned earlier. I call them Divine Downloads and I believe we are all Geniuses or allocated our own specific Genius the trouble is we get wrapped up in earthly red tape and subconsciously also what was discussed in the MindValley discussion I mentioned above Brules short for Bull Shit Rules and we tune out of our Zone out of Genius
We also are Brulled into thinking it is wrong to blow our own Trumpet and be humble. Shutting us out even more of our predisposed given area of Genius for fear of standing out to tall.
We Give credit to others but believe we have nothing to offer
But I truly believe that is not true.
We just haven’t allowed ourselves the time to tap in to our own Level 3 & 4 as Ed described and come at life from Level 1 and 2. Level 1 the Victim mode, why Me? And Level 2 ~ By me, work , work mode or Action, action as I call it now instead of Inspired Action and the Level 2 work, work, action action blocks out those Inflow Opportunities
I know because I was there for so long and that is why I am passionate about sharing there is another way, there is still time and age is irrelevant and I believe that it was no accident I was doing what I was doing and living in my zone of excellence and multiple people were complimenting me on being so talented and then immediately counteracting that with they wish they had a talent and me saying I believe we all have one and them they saying they didn’t or …..
People who had discovered a Passion or a Talent and or Hobby they loved and asking for Tips in to how to turn it in to a Business like I had done
I mentioned earlier I had a Divine Download but felt a bit clunky because of the delay in applying what was flowing through me and I believe there were 2 reasons for writing
Prior to turning on the TV Program I saw an alert for Evan Carmichael going live on Instagram and I seem to be aligning with Evan alot lately so I tapped the notification
Now I am assuming Evan was going Live on Several Platforms at once which is also relevant to the message I am trying to share but that’s very prominent in various places so I won’t discuss this here but when I jumped on he brought someone on to the Live and they were doing a Q & A
The gentleman was talking about following the Inspired Action to become a Motivational Speaker and Evan said “Great, where have you spoke so far?” and the gentleman replied he hadn’t as yet as he had only recently made the decision and then asked him about a dream talk and he said he would love to do a Ted talk
I loved Evans advise of deciding to make it a goal to speak on 3 platforms every week and explained how now, more than ever we have so many opportunities with Digital platforms and suggested things like speaking in front of a class of students and reaching out to people and asking to be a guest on their podcast or a live etc he also explained how easy it can be to do a Ted talk and how there are different Ted opportunities all over the world and various states in the US and if he was willing to Travel and contact the right people a Ted talk is very achievable in a very short space of time and for me personally this brought to my attention a couple things
We tend to focus on the Big ‘So called’ Goal before we have even started and not take in to account all the other achievable steps we can actually take now and that the big Goal is probably not so big or so unachievable or so far out of reach right now as we think so we get mired down before we even start and then most likely do not start full stop because it seems just to far out there in our zone of Genius
Evan also said something that I really related to because it was the very thing that got me mired down and delayed me from starting for several months and was the very same thing I discussed on the thing I delayed starting ….. my podcast “The Fab Over Forty Show“
As I was learning about Podcasting I got very excited and the higher state of consciousness aided me to brainstorm many, many titles of subjects I wanted to discuss about the Law of Attraction and turning Your Passion in to Money in Your Purse and then it discussed the editing and how crucial it was and I became completely overwhelmed
Now I am someone (now) who is used to stepping out of my Zone of Excellence and trying new things and turning them in to my new zone of Excellence but this really fuddled my brain despite several attempts and watching learning and implementing so I procrastinated and work on other projects and I tried to record with no fluffs and would fluff and delete and fluff and delete until whole afternoons and evening were wasted with no content at the end until one day I decided because of other things I was about to launch, in them I mentioned I had this podcast
And I did because it was all accepted on all the major platforms Spotify, Apple etc and the artwork was there but no episodes and because it was halting me launch these other items I had created to help other people find their passions and wake up happy from making a living doing what they love I just decided I had to go for it with no editing ~ fluffs and all and in the end I actually felt intuitively this might actually inspire people “If I Can, They Can” which is exactly what Evan said on that Live last night
He told this Guy just start speaking and recording stuff and “No Editing!” and the guy seemed a little stunned and he added “Seriously, NO Editing and the more you do it the easier it will get and the more comfortable it will get and the better you will get” ie: new Zone of Excellence anyone?
Ironically enough I actually mentioned Evan in a Podcast Episode, Episode #9 Tomorrow is NOT Guaranteed . I just recorded off the cuff a few days earlier, no editing and mentioned on a Virtual event I was attending at the weekend how he didn’t like his first few videos but just kept going because he knew he had a Higher a Purpose and People to serve but what I realised this morning is, if a Zone of Excellence is something we do effortlessly because it has become second nature to us because we have built neural pathways or brain waves around it or an even easier way of saying it “Habits” and if our Zone of Genius is what we are really Intuitively drawn to do and serve by AKA “Our Gifts” …..
When we were born, sorry to be brutally honest but pooping , crying, feeding and sleeping were our Zone of Excellence and walking was a Zone of Genius but we Intuitively started to walk because it was inbuilt in our DNA and then that became our new Zone of Genius.
Like feeding and dressing ourselves, riding a bike, driving a car etc was once “out there” in our Zone of Genius and became our Excellence or “Norm”
Why should it be any difference with our Dreams and Goals
I have mentioned it elsewhere about the thought of becoming an Omnipresent Passion Based Business on Social Media. There was a time we didn’t have smartphones and apps and Facebook but we learnt them so why can we master TikTok, YouTube, Pinterest, Blogging, Podcasting etc?
Less than a Year ago I didn’t know how to build a Digital Course or Digital Product and asset or Sales Funnels for them or a Membership site or Subscription platform and so many other skills I won’t list but now I have and I am nearly 56, because I watched, listened stopped implemented. Reached out for help if I needed it from someone in their Zone of Genius on the subject and rinse and repeat
I have heard it all.
I can’t change. You can’t teach an old dog new tricks. I’m to old. I haven’t got any talents etc .. etc .. etc
And that’s what motivated me to start my Podcast “The Fab Over Forty Show“ and my Facebook Page and Group “Fabulous Freedom over Forty” and build my Products and Services Based around turning your Passions into income and businesses and using the Law of Attraction to deliberately create a Lifestyle You Love and Wake UP Happy for and a community called The Freedom Empire Builders
Because you don’t have to be over 40 to be any part of this but because ……..
I was a Miserable Corporate Manager who thought she gave up on her Goals and Dreams a long time ago but my life didn’t start Transforming until I was over 40 and the book The Secret and the Law of Attraction came in to my life and I saw where I was going wrong ….
I realised I needed to take Responsibility and actually take some Inspired Action if I wanted my life to change so I took one small step of implementing a Gratitude Practice in the Morning and from taking that one small step and listening to my Intuition and took another Inspired Action step and another and inadvertently created a 5 Step Morning Routine that completely Transformed my Life (which I now give away) and I actually have a Trademark Framework called The G.R.E.A.T Formula ™️ to help others on Their Transformational Journey and I get to wake up Happy everyday Doing What I love and Loving What I love which incidentally I wrote on a Goal Card Inspired by Bob Proctor who I resonated to from the Film Version of The Secret and which I talk about in a video I recorded for my Law of Attraction Lovers Club of why I Am so Passionate about and advocate making one
And Talking of Bob. He’s in his 80’s as I type and he is the quintessential example of someone who steps out of his Zone of Excellence on a regular basic and adopts all new ways of Marketing Zone of Genius so can serve as many people as Possible
So if you think you do not have Genius gift here are a couple tips to tap into it or in most cases dig it up because may be it has been buried so deep while working so hard on a building someone else’s dreams?
💖 If you could wake up tomorrow doing what you love all day what would that thing be?
💖 What 1 small step do you feel inspired to take today that would be part of answer to that last question
💖 What do you do in Your current Zone of Excellence that you really enjoy that you see would be useful if you were living in own Unique Zone on Genius
💖 Aim to make it a habit each day to spend a few minutes imagining yourself already doing what you would love to do most in the world
I am not writing this post to sell you anything … just to inspire You but if anything I have said Inspires You and You would like more hints and tips or my gift to you of my Freedom Making Morning Routine I would love for You to check out any of the places I mentioned above or just click on the link below to find out more about how you can Wake Up Happy
