Yup, you heard me right. What’s your jam? What are you absolutely amazing at? What is your Zone of Genius?
So many people get stuck focusing on all of the negative aspects of their lives, “I’m not good enough”, “So and so is better than me at_____, so I’m not even gonna try”. Ugh. Come on, people, wake up! We all have positive and negative aspects of ourselves. It’s time we own up and start focusing on our brilliance!
I like to see every human as a diamond. Yes, I know, sounds pretty hokey, but hear me out. If you look at yourself like a diamond, every facet is a piece of you. We have the bright and shiny sides of ourselves that we want the world to see and we also have the facets that are kinda dingy and dirty. The bad ass, Carl Jung, one of the founding fathers of psychology, coined this “facet” the Shadow. But we can go into the shadow another time. Today, we’re going to focus on the bright and shiny. ?
Getting back to my original question: What’s Your Jam?
Everyone has this spark of brilliance inside. The part of you that makes you uniquely, well…YOU! You may be a killer coder, a brilliant botanist, an awesome artist, a great gift-for-gabber, the list goes on and on. The point is to start focusing on your positives. Check inside yourself and ask, “What am I good at? What is my Zone of Genius? What is that one thing that I absolutely ROCK?” We’ve all got one, or maybe even a few. Oh! And one rule to this game: no comparing yourself! Don’t let that judgy shadow come in.
So, that’s it. I’d LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to hear what your jam is, so lemme know!
