Grow Your Genius

 

Grow Your Genius Project

In my work as a brain coach and psychotherapist, I’m always fascinated with what allows people to perform with excellence. What are the talents and qualities that make others see genius in them? How did they evolve and what keeps them growing and contributing in special ways?  Do they have hardships and bad luck like the rest of us? If so, how do they do handle it? 

My definition of genius is simple: You know it when you see it. You think:  "This person has something special." And, most people would agree. It's not necessarily academic achievement, doing well in school, but it could be. It could also be the Mom Genius, Business Genius, Music Genius, Inventor Genius. Whatever, these are people who have evolved to a higher level of competence at least in some area and they share their talents to make the world a better place.

Geniuses could be super famous people, and we see them all over the media. However, for The Genius Project, I decided to start with people in my own world: friends, acquaintances, mentors and colleagues whom I see at varying levels of closeness.  These are the Everyday Geniuses we see around us. 

Hopefully their stories will inspire you to develop your own special talents and those of your kids and to appreciate it genius as it exists all around you. Home, work and life. 

We are all given this life today. How can we make the most of it?
