Jobs, industries, companies, economies are subject to change but there’s one thing that doesn’t change and it’s the fact that you are a genius. Yes a genius and you’ve been using that genius your whole life. In fact, it’s what people consistently come to you for even if you’ve never advertised. It’s what people thank you for providing even though you were just being yourself. It may not be what you’ve been paid to do (yet) but it’s valuable and of service to others.
Each of us possesses a unique core genius. It’s the package of skills, experiences, talents, ideas, attitudes and preferences that no one else can replicate in exactly the same way because no one else has lived our life or been through what each of us has been through.
If you’ve been looking to give your career new life, you need look no further than the genius that’s been uniquely yours. Look to the ways you’ve easily been of service to others throughout your life and you will see a pattern of genius shining through. For example, I’ve been asking people about their careers since I was six. I wanted to know what they did for a job and what they liked and didn’t like about it. And if they didn’t like it, what would need to change for them to be happier.
I have changed Careers and feel that i have transferred my genius into creating and showing off my artistic abilities to the world. In your case, the same is true. Your genius can be of service in a myriad of ways. If your current company is downsizing or your industry is shrinking, don’t wait for the layoffs, start looking now at ways your genius can be of service in new situations.
