>Tips from the book “The Big Leap” by Gay Hendricks
Insight: “Money arguments never have anything to do with money.”
I apply this to other argument topics or misunderstandings – look deeper for what is really going on.
Affirmation: I commit to discovering my Upper Limit behaviors, and to having a good time while I’m learning about them.
A process for using worry-thoughts (and emotions such as fear and anxiety) as a spring board into your Zone of Genius:
*Make it a daily practice to spot your worry-thoughts
*When you notice yourself worrying about something, let go of the worry-thoughts, and shift your focus away from those thoughts
*Wonder: what positive new thing is trying to come into being?
*You may feel a body feeling of where that positive new thing is trying to come through
*Open your focus to feel that body feeling completely. Let yourself feel it deeply for as long as you can.
*Later (or maybe right away!) you’ll often get an idea of the positive thing that was trying to come through
Questions to begin to discover your Zone of Genius:
What do I most love to do?
What work do I do that does not seem like work?
In my work, what produces the highest ratio of abundance and satisfaction to amount of time spent?
What is my unique ability?
Homework: Do Spring Cleaning with a partner or friend this week, on the question “what is my unique ability?”
This is where one person just asks the other “what is your unique ability?” Then listens to the person without commenting. When the person is complete, say “Thank you. What is your unique ability?” This continues for the agreed amount of time with the last one being a check in if they are ready for the last one. It’s an amazing process that brings up more than you would imagine. Do it on any subject with someone you trust to hold the space for you. It only takes 3-5 minutes.
