In the simplest terms, Rick, you allow it to reveal itself to you.
However, I know this isn't what you are exactly looking for in an answer. Therefore I am sharing a simple and easy guideline that I have used with my clients and myself for more than two decades. It was originally published by Gay and Kathlyn Hendricks of The Hendrick's Institute. I hope you find this helpful.
The Quantum Focus Quadrant Questions
1. Unique Abilities/Genius
What work do you love doing that doesn’t seem like work?
What of your work generates the largest ratio of positive results compared to time spent?
What are your unique abilities that an organization would have a hard time replacing?
What is it that you do, and if you couldn’t do it any longer, you just wouldn’t feel like you?
What do you consistently get positive feedback about in your work?
What do you do better than just about anyone else?
What do you do that others can do as well or better?
What work do you do well but that isn’t totally satisfying?
What do you consistently get negative feedback about in your work?
What do you do that just about everyone can do better?
Answer these questions with depth and clarity and then decide if you desire to create a livelihood from a place of your Unique Abilities and Excellence.
You will experience more joy and fulfillment in your life if you spend at least 70% of your time in Quadrants 1 & 2.
In joy, Tracy
