We are all individuals that have our own unique strengths. To remain happy and content, it’s imperative we learn how to apply our individual strengths to our everyday lives.
It’s easy to beat yourself up thinking you should be better at something. Most of us do this on a daily basis without even
Tip #1 Love More
The more love you have for yourself, the more others will be attracted to you and you will feel comfortable enough to be you and access your inner genius.
This may sound cheesy, but it works! Every morning throw your arms around yourself and give a squeeze. Then look in the mirror and say I love you at least 5 times to the person you see before you. The more you practice, the easier this will get and the more confortable you will be to express your inner beauty.
Tip #2 Connecting with Your Strengths
Many people go through life knowing some things they are good at, but haven’t taken the time to do an in depth inventory of their strengths? Your strengths are what make you a unique individual. Becoming more familiar with your strengths will allow your inner genius to shine to the world.
A great book I like to recommend is called Strengthfinder by Marcus Buckingham and Donald Clifton. By the book, skip to chapter 3, then go online to take a quiz to access your 5 top strengths. You then get to read about your top 5 strengths and how to apply them to your career or business.
The clearer you are about your strengths, the clearer you will be about what to outsource in your business, what you enjoy doing, and how you tend to interact with others.
Strengths are also great way to connect with a potential employer when being interviewed or interviewing someone else to see if they are a good fit for a position.
Tip #3 Access and Pay Attention to your Intuition
Pay attention to the times when you feel that gut feeling within. You know what I’m talking about, your stomach starts to ache, you get goose bumps, chills, or you just know something isn’t right? This is your intuition getting your attention.
The more you pay attention to your immediate feelings and that inner knowingness, the more connected you will start to become to your inner genius.
Tip #4 Align yourself Physically
It’s easy to get drained and feel like the creative juices aren’t flowing when you need them the most.
In order to increase your physically energy and start the creative flow is to stand tall with your feet grounded, shoulder width apart. Next start taking a few deep breaths from the stomach to the chest, then start bending your legs together at the same time up and down as you feel the energy flow from your feat to your head. After you do this 5 times you will automatically feel more alert and alive.
This increases your energy and instantly gets the blood flowing back to your head.
Tip #5 Live from the Heart, not the Head
You know the times when you get that gut feeling that you need to do something and automatically want to say YES! But then, something holds you back as your brain starts thinking and contemplating why or why you shouldn’t move forward.
When you are living from the heart you start listening to the inner knowingness and less to what others are saying you should or shouldn’t do.
I call the heart a pathway to your inner genius because the heart is your true essence of who you are. When you are thinking with your heart, you are able to turn off your reasoning, limiting beliefs, and societal and family programming that has been embedded in your head since birth.
To connect further with heart and to make decisions from your heart, place your hand on your heart and breath into it for a few minutes when making a decision. This is where you will find your inner genius and be able to access answers to all of your most important questions.
Ultimately, each one of you has an inner genius that is available to you at any time. The key is learning to trust your inner wisdom by going within for answers. The more you believe it exists and unleash your greatness, the more the world will be attracted to your uniqueness and inner genius.
