Boost Your Brilliance

Boost Your Brilliance | The Art of Asking Questions | Scoop.it
Natalia Goloskokova's insight:

Whenever I hear of someone struggling with writing, whether it's a book, a blog post, or an article, I am amazed because writing comes easily to me. A blog post may take 20-45 minutes, a book can be done in a week (yes, I've done this.) But, I don't think this is special or brilliant. On the other hand, I've colleagues and clients who certainly think it is. Your brilliance is in your blind spot. What you do without even thinking about it, without great effort, without hardship is your greatest gift.

The key is to find those blindspots and uncover your brilliance. It is often like that old adage "you can't see the forest, for the trees," except this is about seeing the forest but not the individual trees where your brilliance resides. Here are some action steps to help you uncover your unique brilliance and bring it to market. Take ACTION:
1. What do you currently work at or what would you work at gladly and enthusiastically without pay? Write it down on an index card, and you can have up to 5 answers.

2. What do you regularly help others with that is second nature to you? Write it down on an index card, look for overlaps with your previous list.

3. What has someone praised you for or thanked you for, that you pushed off as no-brainer, and no big deal? Write it down and review your answers, your overlaps are your brilliance. Do they surprise you?  

Your brilliance is in your blindspot; find it by
noticing what you do without thinking that everyone
else has to work at. #brilliance #leadyourself
