Your Unique Genius

Hi, welcome back to

your Daily Mindfulness.

In today's session, we're going

to talk about your unique genius.

I'd like to share an

Albert Einstein quote.

He says, "Everybody is a genius, but

if you judge a fish by its ability to

climb a tree, it will live its whole

life believing that it is stupid."

Notice how that one lands for you.

This quote brings up a lot of

different thoughts and feelings for me.

A lot of which is related

to maybe the traditional

education system, we could say.

I think so much of how we perceive

our intelligence, our strengths,

our weaknesses comes from the

early years of our education.

And well, I think most of us can

definitely remember a teacher or teachers

who had a powerful impact on our sense

of self, confidence and empowerment.

I think also, overall, a lot of

the traditional education system

can perhaps unintentionally limit

our ability to explore and nurture

our strengths, our unique genius.

I know many people who are now

deeply fulfilled and successful in a

traditional sense who while in school

felt inadequate and unintelligent.

And it was primarily because they were

being assessed through predetermined

standards of what skills or benchmarks

a person should know or develop

or reach that weren't connected

to what their unique genius was.

They were being judged for their

ability to climb a tree when their

strength was swimming in the ocean.

So my hope is that you can use this quote

to challenge some of the ideas you might

have about why you're not good enough

or smart enough or capable enough, if

that's a story you hold to some degree.

And instead become curious about the

environment you would thrive, in that

would leverage your unique genius.

We all have our own strengths and it's

a life's work to uncover what those are.

Thank you for your practice.

Let's settle in for today's meditation.
