Watch this 12 Year Old Girl in Her Zone of Genius (Warning: You may cry!)
I just watched a 12-year-old girl completely owning her zone of genius.
And it made me well up.
I just felt so emotional.
In fact everyone who watched was emotionally touched at a soul level.
You can just see it in their faces. Big, shiny smiles as they watch this 12-year-old girl step up and OWN her gifts.
You can catch the video below in a sec, but what struck me as I watched this was just how much of an impact it had on everyone around her.
As she belted out the song ‘Defying Gravity’ from the musical Wicked, you could feel the palpable goosebumps on everybody who was there, because they knew they were witnessing something special. It was so beautiful, even Simon Cowell’s little face lit up.
These reactions go some way to explaining why shows like America’s Got Talent, The X Factor, and The Voice are so hugely popular in today’s society.
It’s simple. We all instinctively LOVE to watch someone step up into their authentic self and share their amazing natural talents with the world.
We freaking love that stuff!
Because it’s ultimately what we all want.
We all know instinctively that deep down this path is meant for all of us, not just a chosen few.
We ALL deserve to step up, own our gifts and shine like the diamonds that we are.
And THIS is why it’s only natural for us to get emotional when we see this happen to others.
While you may not have a clear talent like being a singer, an artist or an athlete, there is something that is unique about YOU that needs to be expressed through your work.
You have gifts, and your soul won’t stop quietly nagging at you until you start pursuing what these gifts are.
As Oprah would say – this is your calling.
Those nudges that you get, where some deep dark aspect of you KNOWS you could be doing something better, something bigger, something with more meaning, they cannot be ignored.
And in my experience, what happens if we ignore them, is the nudges get louder and louder until you get forced out of your situation and thrust into something new.
This can often come in the form of redundancy or another big life change where you’re forced to stop and take stock of what you really want to be doing with your life.
So, take a moment to watch little Beau crush it on Britain’s Got Talent and try not to be touched. Try not to feel anything as you witness this little girl killing it and owning her zone of genius like a true pro.
My guess is it will be a struggle because let’s face it, this is why we’re all here.
P.S. Here’s the video of Beau. Enjoy 🙂
