Getting in the Zone

We all have the opportunity to live our best lives. Yet, we often hold ourselves back because we believe what we’re doing is good enough or we don’t think there’s anything else for us.  But, what if I told you it’s possible to break through those barriers and soar?

You see, many of us live in what Gay Hendricks calls the zone of excellence in his book, The Big Leap. We have spent years learning our craft, we are sought after to provide services in this area, and it feels good to get recognition for something we’re good at. 

And yet, many of us are facing the feeling of dissatisfaction. And that feeling leads to feelings of  guilt. I mean, we have nothing to be dissatisfied with. Life looks like it should on many levels, so we start to wonder what we’re doing wrong. I often hear from my clients: “What’s wrong with me? Why can’t I just feel satisfied with the way things are? Nothing’s wrong, so it must be me.”

I’m here to tell you not a darn thing is wrong with you.

It’s likely you just aren’t living in what Hendricks calls your zone of genius. 

In this week’s blog, I give a few examples of the difference between living in your zone of excellence versus living in your zone of genius and share some questions to help you start to unpack what your zone of genius is and how to spend more time there each day.
