Can you remember being a BABY GENIUS?
You were, we all were and although you may not be right now, you can be again. Let me take you back a few decades to when you were a tiny baby. You see what was interesting about you, were you were noisy, you were messy, you made stuff, you created stuff, you danced, pranced and displayed a mind that was as sharp as a razor. You were a baby genius. That is until someone started to use this word at you;
STOP! Stop singing.
Stop making a mess.
Stop doing what ‘I’ don’t want you to do. And it never stopped did it.
In school, it was – Stop dreaming.
Stop, stop, stop.
And in your job it carried on and in your relationship it happened! Until the day arrived when the genius in you had become compressed, squashed, flattened, locked-up, repressed and hammered down to make others happy. Sad, yet so true! Yet you can be and really are a genius. You know it’s in there you’re just not sure how to let it out again.
What you think it’s gone? Here’s what taken place. The tiny microscopic tricks your brain uses to connect and unleash your genius have been cut under pressure, pressure from those mentioned above. They are the ones that want you to be like them. Average, dull and stupid. They are the victims to the enslavement of the worst kind. They want you to be like them – ‘a conformist’. And after years of hearing them out, listening to them with respect and seeing them as an authority you finally broke under the pressure. But that does not mean it isn’t in there. It is in there, the genius you were born with still resides in you like it resides in everybody else. All you have to do is re-discover and release your baby genius.
How? It’s true, you are what you eat. You are also what you feed your mind.
Can I ask you a question; what have you fed your mind with today, yesterday, last week, last month? And if you reply … “I can’t remember” … you are not only in trouble but your baby genius is sending you warning signals from deep inside. It’s crying, pining, asking you to feed it before it finally dies. And when you do finally feed it and someone asks you what have you filled your brain with today, yesterday, last week, last month and you can tell them …. you are back on track to releasing your natural baby genius.
1. Sit in huge bookshops (great place to discover, read and feed your mind and … be aware of human nature)
2. Meditate each morning (critical to stabilize your mind and start it with focus daily)
3. Ride my custom chopper (gives me time to relax and think)
4. Think about the good stuff (yes take time to think about the good stuff in life despite a world packed with bad news).
I hope this tiny snippet helps you to reveal, to uncover, to release, to finally reawaken and rediscover your own baby genius.
