Why the World Needs Your Gift

It’s hardly a big secret: The world is changing rapidly.  Not just the world of work – but the entire world.

For example: just 15 years ago, the internet was an unknown quantity to most of us.  Today, most of us organize our worklife – in fact, our life in general – around this ubiquitous, invisible, behemoth.

Couple this with the fact that we are becoming far more globally-oriented than local-minded, and you can see that the old adage, “Adapt or Die!” may be more imperative now than ever before.

And this is all great news!!!!

Never before has it been so important, or in some ways easier, to make the difference that you most want to make in the world.

Whenever there’s a major upheaval, there is chaos and fear and overwhelm.  New problems develop that have to be solved.  And that’s where you come into the picture…because you are a unique blend of talents, interests and values (and a bunch of other important things) you have the power to solve those problems.  You have the opportunity to give your unique gift to the world.

When Talent Collides

Here’s an unusual question for you…

How far are you willing to stretch your wings with your talent?

Do you play it safe most of the time – flying under the radar?

Or do you actively seek out new opportunities to see if you can cause a flap?

Take a moment to see what happens when two men from completely different worlds and different artistic genres stretch their wings and allow their talent to collide (almost literally a few times!)

Your Gift

The world needs your gift – go out and give it!

That’s been my mantra for “my people” for quite a while now.

What does it really mean?

Your “gift” is what you do to create the change you wish to see in the world.

Which begs the question…

Do you know the change you wish to see in the world?

Who Do You Spend the Most Time With?

Motivational speaker Jim Rohn asserts that we are the average of the five people we spend the most time with.

Over the course of a 40-year career, you will spend approximately 100,000 hours working. An argument could be made that the people you work with are the very folks who are building your character.

Do you admire the traits, qualities and characteristics of your coworkers? Are they helping you become the person you want to be?

Where is Your Art?

Seth Godin writes:
“Art is not in the eye of the beholder, it’s in the heart of the artist.”

If an artist creates and never shows it to anyone does that mean it’s not art?
If those who behold what you create and don’t call it art, are they right?

Create, create, create!

The world needs your art – even if they never behold it.

Are You Happy Zagging?

Are you job-seeking?

If so, are you following the conventional job search advice that you find online?

Might want to re-think this approach.

If you’re doing what everyone else is doing, then you’re not standing out in the crowd.

How will you ever be seen for the incredible asset that you are?

Consider the merits of observing everyone else’s approach and doing just the opposite.

They Zig, You Zag.

Happy Zagging!
