Tommy Newberry on How to Find Your God-Given GeniusYour area of Genius is the specific point where what you enjoy doing most intersects with what you do best.  This is where you are capable of making the greatest contribution in the world.

So, how do you find it?  How do you find this unique strength God has specifically designed for you?

Think about what you naturally enjoy.  Ask yourself what you’d do all day long if money were not a factor.  Only when you really love what you do will you have what it takes to generate tremendous results.

What is God whispering in your ear?  Exercise the courage to honestly identify where you have been uniquely blessed–where you have special talents and abilities.  If you don’t know, pray about it.  Ask your friends and family.  You have the ability to become outstanding in at least one thing if you are selective and if you throw your whole heart into becoming the best.

Whether you are a star athlete, a pastor, or a business leader, you have a marketplace–a group of people you are charged with serving.  Your Genius is a set of related activities that collectively produce superior rewards in the marketplace.  When you operate in your Genius, excellence is inevitable and you will produce outstanding results.

Almost everyone has experienced brief glimpses of their Genius.  This is the specific point where what you love to do the most merges with what you do the best.  This is where you will spend your life in your own way, making the difference that you are uniquely equipped to make.

Helping people identify and grow their God-given genius is one of Tommy’s passions, book him to speak at your organization!

Here are seven clues that will help you identify your Genius.

Passion.

Your area of Genius will always be characterized by enthusiasm, intense interest, and pure fun.  This passion will be difficult to turn off, even when you’re away from work.

Rapid and Continuous Learning.

In your area of Genius, new concepts are easily visualized and quickly integrated into your existing knowledge base.  The learning process is fun, and never-ending improvement comes naturally.

Strong Memory.

Facts, figures, dates, names, conversations, and key points related to your Genius activities are effortlessly recalled when needed.

Flow.

When you’re operating in your Genius, you’ll tend to get totally immersed in what you’re doing.  Sometimes this is referred to being “in the zone.”

Using Intuition.

In your Genius, you’ll naturally tap into and be inclined to follow your intuitive hunches, and most importantly, you will be right.

Absence of Burnout.

Since you’ll be doing what you do best and most love to do, you will get more done in less time and be happier, healthier, and much more balanced.

Yearning.

When you experience a deep desire that just won’t go away, it’s a strong sign that you may be approaching your Genius.

The “Wing-It” Factor.

Have you ever attempted something, completed it with very little effort or preparation, and then received tremendous feedback and praise?  This means you “winged it” and got away with it.  This can be a great clue to your Genius.  Just don’t stop there.  One of the biggest performance mistakes people make is continuing to wing it because they can, rather than investing the effort and time to develop their Genius to reach even greater levels.

You have been custom-made by God to serve an exclusive function in this world.  It is in your charge to discover what that purpose is for you specifically.  Believe in the idea that God sends you and plants in your heart–and then take action!
