"These are times in which a genius would wish to live. It is not in the still calm of life, or in the repose of a pacific station, that great challenges are formed. . . . Great necessities call out great virtues. " ~Abigail Adams, closest advisor and wife of US President John Adams, mother of US President John Quincy Adams, 1780
Reading this quote yesterday after a week of particularly distressing world events inspired me.
“These are times in which a genius would wish to live.”
And, I would add, these are times to call forth the genius within each of us.
We can choose not to give in to despair, blame and polarization. We can choose to consciously use the challenges of our time to grow into our greatest virtues. In the face of adversity we can choose to become more innovative, resourceful, creative, compassionate and more committed to our deepest values.
Just as your individual challenges call on you to grow into your expanded potential - your best self- your genius self- so the current challenges of our world call us individually and collectively to grow into the expanding genius of our hearts, minds, souls and communities.
You are here to shine your unique and precious gifts to the world, right where you are, in your own special way. Our world needs the gifts that only you can bring.
That is why I coach and teach and mentor. To help people awaken and unleash the extraordinary wisdom, love, guidance and creativity within, and to support them in shining their gifts into the world with ease and joy. Because when we are aligned with our true inner power and when we are freely sharing our gifts we feel happier, healthier, lit up with purpose and our world becomes a better place.
That is why I created my radio show We Are More. To offer inspiring conversations that help us remember we are so much more than we yet know and to give support for expanding into our personal and planetary potential. Listen in and let us know: What inspires you? Who would you like to hear interviewed?
