So, as an adult when I need a dose of creative renewal before I write a blog article, or create a new program or speech for my business, I may read some pages from one of my favorite books,“How to Be Like Walt; Capturing the Disney Magic Every Day of Your Life” or watch one of the many YouTube videos of him explaining his newest idea, innovation for Disneyland or the “project x” expansion (Disney World), etc.
In my perspective, Walt Disney was the epitome of living and working in his genius. The profound impact this man had on our world is the result of a non-negotiable creative spirit.
That’s why he became one of the world’s most iconic visionaries ever lived.
You, too have this capability. Living in your genius zone more often is at the core of coaching my creative entrepreneur clients for upleveled emotional and mental fulfillment, higher performance, more consistent happiness, and higher revenues.
Taking the Big Leap (Gay Hendricks) is when you learn how to escape your excellence zone (comfort zone, predictability, secure) and choose to operate and work from your genius and core talents MORE often.
That’s when the magic happens and it’s possible for you, too.
I don’t need to point out the stats and plethora of innovations created by Disney, Steve Jobs, Sara Blakely of Spanx, J.K. Rowling, Bill Gates, Elizabeth Gilbert, and the list goes on where living in your genius zone more often works. It does when you have a non-negotiable commitment.
I aspire for you and all creatives to learn this life and career changing habit. I had no idea there was a genius zone till I read The Big Leap recommended by my coach three years ago. Now it’s at the core of coaching my creative clients.
