Last post we spoke of the need to embrace your genius. Today I’d like to look at another issue. The need to defend your genius...
Sad to say, but genius is often attacked. Attacks are usually caused by fear. And fear comes from unknown things or different things.
White people fear black people. Black people fear Asian people. But once they get to know them, the fear disappears.
Unfortunately so many people have run away from their genius, that they fear the ones who embrace their own genius. So they attack them.
These attacks can take many forms. Ridicule or condemnation. Abuse, physical or emotional. Gossip and political in fighting where you work.
I have seen parents condemn their own child’s genius. Often. I have seen friends unconsciously ridicule or condemn genius of those close to them.
Most of the time, the guilty party doesn’t even know what they are doing. But they do it none the less.
So you have to be prepared to stand up and defend your genius. Or you could lose it forever.
So now that you’ve spent some time thinking about what your genius is, it’s worth it to think about who around you is threatened by it. Please give that some serious thought and check in below.
