The Galloping Gourmet is Safe…

I’m getting more clarity these days on what my skills are, and conversely, what they aren’t, and being cool with both. With no judgment, it’s fine to know that I’m not going to be the world’s greatest auto mechanic. I could certainly increase my knowledge of that topic and even devote time to working on cars, but it’s just not one of my innate abilities. Like I said, that’s cool – no worries.

These days, I’m more interested in focusing on what I’m naturally amazing at – what puts me in “the zone,” when I lose track of time and am having a ball. You know that feeling? When you’ve been working on something for a while, you check the clock, are shocked to discover it’s been four hours, and then think that you could continue working for another four hours without a break? That’s the zone I’m talking about! That’s the arena I choose to play in more and more each day, where what I’m doing is what I love to do, and I have the potential to be the best in the world at it. Working in this Zone on a daily basis can also help us tap into what we are truly here to do; our “purpose,” if you will.

Think about any really successful people, whether they are musicians, lawyers, designers, athletes, or engineers. I would bet pretty strongly that those people are working in their Zone!

If you’re interested in taking The Big Leap into your Zone of Genius, I highly recommend checking out this book by Gay Hendricks.

And for a laugh today (at my expense), here’s an example of me outside of my Zone, and how I think we can still have fun in those times.

In case you’re curious, that’s Sensophy Studios behind me. A little behind-the-scenes action, right? :-)

    Hi Nathan,

    You have about as much experience in the kitchen as I do. :) That is awesome that you are embracing it, I did too. Now I can make some mean a** chicken stir fry lol.

    I feel you on at any level of learning, you can either embrace it or let the feeling of being overwhelmed come over you. When I actually embraced my job as being an electrical estimator, I started to learn more and worry less. I am doing this with my subconscious mine too, I want to be able to clear out my mind of any negative thoughts, but I know this won't happen overnight. So I am happily looking forward to not using my time on negative thoughts and spending them more creatively and in just being there for others. So at this moment I am happy that I am atleast on this path and I get to experience the change of consciousness in myself and others around me.

    Love, Alissa

    @jacob – you know it!

    @alissa – thanks so much for the kitchen support – now I know when I make it to Michigan, there'll be tons of stir fry! :-)

    really excited about the path you're on and how you're stepping into the role of Creator – consciously filling your mind with all that goodness – nice stuff!

    it's in that period of embracing that the real magic begins…
