Tapping Into Your Genius

By Randy Gage in Critical Thinking, Success, Prosperity.

Elon Musk wasn’t the first person who thought of Hyperloop transportation.  I had a lady present the concept to me over 25 years ago.  Elon is just the first guy to really do something about it.

Elon wasn’t the first person to think of battery-powered automobiles.  He was just the first to seriously do something about them.

And Elon certainly wasn’t the first person to think about base stations on the moon, or colonizing Mars.  He’s just the guy doing it.

All this is not to say Elon isn’t a brilliant, amazing genius.  Because he most certainly is that.  But his ultimate genius is his practice of getting to work, being willing to fail, and passionately pursuing his ideas.

Which brings us to you…

You don’t have to be the first person to think about doing something astonishing.  You just have to be the first to do it.


P.S. Be sure to read my last book Mad Genius, for a deeper dive into how we can all access our innate genius.

  1. Sometimes you don’t even have to be the first to do something that is prosperous & successful. It may not have been done in a long time, or very few do it,

    Thanks and I will be the first to do it at my TEDx talk in Ocala 11-4-17 excited. Introducing a new method that supports sexual abuse survivors to lead healthy, happy lives discovered by a woman who learned by living it.

  3. Nancy Hall says:

    That is a great point. Thank you, Randy! The agonizing part is that (sometimes) others can see genius in someone who can only see bits and pieces in him/herself. How do you see all of your own unique genius?

  4. Great post I really love it! Thanks for the inspiration I’m just a small time operator but in small and big things the rules are the same. 🙂

  5. Great food for thought. My first thought as I read the last line in this though is that I don’t have to the the first to do it. I just have to do it. But maybe that was my first thought because my personal “Big Dream” has already been accomplished by countless others. And that takes nothing away from the Genius that I bring as I “show up” and step into my Greatness. Word?

    Many things have already been done … you can improve them substantially; That’s where a true genius resides …
