I’ve come to believe each of us possesses untapped talents that make us uniquely and extraordinarily gifted in some way. These one-of-a-kind abilities are like hidden superpowers! But for too long, I played it safe chasing goals that relied on my general competence rather than my rare talents. I now realize I sabotaged my own exponential potential by not zeroing in on my true gifts.
It wasn’t until I read 2x to 10x by Dan Sullivan that the power of focusing intensely on your innate, special abilities finally clicked for me. He advocates setting ambitious 10X goals and I believe the SWEET SPOT for these extraordinary goals is wherever your uniqueness intersects with exponential opportunities.
You see, everyone has relative strengths...but your SPECIAL strength is like a multiplier factor that changes everything! Combined with exponential thinking, your talents create possibility on a totally new scale. For me, that gift is taking complex concepts and reframing them through engaging stories and compelling analogies. I realized that if I doubled down specifically on this intersection, the sky was the limit for how many minds and hearts I could open through sharing ideas that woke people up in surprising ways!
Once I got hyper focused on my unique communication ability and using it toward exponential ends, all of my work and life goals completely transformed. I gave myself permission to reimagine what was possible and set much bigger targets than ever before!
Sure, with bigger ambitions came bigger failures and obstacles along the way. But seeing each failure as data to adjust course allowed me to accelerate like never before. It no longer mattered how unrealistic the end goal seemed because I was harnessing special abilities I alone possessed to get there!
I believe each of you reading this has your own exponential superpower within. So how do you uncover it? Audit your talents and pay attention when activities leave you feeling lit up, strong, magnetic and unstoppable. We often abandon unique gifts from childhood but they are still there!
Combining your native talents with exponential thinking is like finding the treasure you were born with. There is no limit to what you can achieve and contribute. You simply need to reconnect with that forgotten part of who you really are! I hope my own journey inspires you to unlock your hidden gifts and share them exponentially with the world!
