"Your 1% Genius is activated when you start focusing on the solution rather than the problem". ~Keith Craft
We're wrapping up "Your Divine Fingerprint" by Pastor Keith Craft. Today we're going to talk about the genius inside of you.
"Don't see things worse than they are"
I would love to know if you've been going through the book with us. We usually talk about your mindset in the mornings. We go through a book, talk about life lessons, or something that's going to help you pursue your goals, set goals, believe in yourself, or help you realize that there's greatness inside of you.
We are wrapping up this book today, so for the next couple of weeks maybe you can send me some ideas of other books that you'd like to go through. Or if you have different ideas on what we can do in the morning, you can send me a message.
All right! Do you have any big takeaways or something that you've learned from the book? Any gifts or talents that you haven't been utilizing and want to tap into? This book was to really help you realize your divine fingerprint, what you were called to do, and the gifts and talents that you have now.
YOUR 1% GENIUS (Chapter 11)
"Your 1% Genius is activated when you start focusing on the solution rather than the problem".
I think this is key! Something that my husband and I learned years ago from our CEO and good friend, who really taught this phrase to us.
"Don't see it worse than it is".
That's good because how often do we look at situations in life, in our day, in our morning, or your day hasn't gone how we want it to go, and we just explode and get frustrated? You often feel that the rest of your day is ruined, but if you just sit back for a moment and just not make it worse than it already is, it's really not a big deal. Learn your lesson and fix it for tomorrow.
THE GENIUS INSIDE YOU
You have your 1% factor, you are you with your gifts and your talents. Part of that is being a problem solver, baby steps of isolating problems, and how to come up with a solution.
How many of you have teenagers? We have four daughters and two of them are teens. How many of you have children that complain or gripe about problems?
If you're complaining about something, or if you're frustrated about something throughout the day, don't see something worse than it is. And don't complain about something if you don't have a solution. Sit back and think of ways to fix it.
Part of the genius inside of you is being a problem solver. And I think oftentimes we just write ourselves off, "I can't figure that out", "That's not for me", or "I just want to complain"...
This book is about becoming the best version of you, and part of that is solving problems.
"Let's face it, problems aren't going away. Everybody has problems. And if you don't have one, you will have one sooner or later. Most people run from their problems or try to ignore them, in hopes that they will go away, but they won't. Other people will try to diminish the severity of their problems in hopes that things will get better without intervention. As a result, problems persist".
"Because few people run toward the problem with full intent to solve them. Your 1% genius is activated every time you run towards a problem and you don't back down. Every problem is a practice for you to level up. In fact, if you don't learn to solve problems on the level that you're at in life right now, you will never get to the next level".
"How do you ultimately benefit from problems? Every problem that you solve, shouts out to you, "You were born to solve somebody's problems. You are not a problem, you are the solution to somebody's problem".
"Always remember this, if you never had a problem to solve, you would never know how much of a genius you are. Look at your hand right now. Look at the end of your fingers. You have fingerprints nobody else has ever had, and nobody will solve problems that only 1% of Genius can solve. Go to the unstoppable today, be somebody's solution. Walk into a room and say 'Don't worry, the solution is here'".
When people come to me with their health goals, most of them are frustrated, because this week didn't go well. They didn't lose the fat that they wanted to. Look at yourself in the mirror and say "This is where I am today"...
Say the things that you're grateful for, and stop looking at all the things that you're frustrated about.
I don't like the way I look
I don't like how I feel
I'm frustrated with the weight that I've gained
Stop seeing it worse than it is because you're physically not going to change yourself with grumbling and complaining about you right now. But you can fix it! Stop complaining and figure out the solution.
Figure out the problem...
Why am I not waking up?
Why am I always late?
Why am I making excuses not to go to the gym?
Why am I not packing my lunch?
If I'm going to complain about it, then I have to have a solution. If you're going to complain about something, then it's not going to come out of your mouth unless you're willing to work on it and figure out what can fix the problem. This is something you can teach your children as well.
If you feel like there's a problem, how can you help solve it? Give your kids the gift of learning how to solve problems along with you.
In any area or situation, as you're making decisions, not looking at things worse than they are will help you choose your attitude throughout the day. Just because your day might have not gone the way that you wanted it to, it does not have to run the rest of your day.
YOUR 1% POWER
"You are deploying the 1% of you. When you think it's how you think. When you be, who you've chosen to be. And when you do, your attitude, behaviors, and actions make those around you better".
The last chapter of this book talks about your spiritual growth. So, my husband and I help coach people and talk about how their life and goals. Oftentimes people would say, "I just want to lose some fat".
They look at their life as one situation when in reality, life is made up of different spokes. You've got your work spoke, relationship, finances, health, and your spiritual spoke. And when one of those is broken, it's not going to smoothly go through the path that you want it to go to, and it will affect other areas of your life.
If your finances are broken, you get frustrated and you might eat out of emotion. If your spiritual spoke is broken, it's going to cause some emptiness and sadness. If you pay attention to the other areas of your life, how often does a broken spoke cause you to use food as a comfort?
It's a vicious cycle, and if you decide to ignore the other areas of your life, that's where people fall into the trap of eating, skipping the gym, or binge-watching movies. Which causes you to get unhealthy and break the spoke of your health.
YOUR SPIRITUAL SPOKE
Where are you with God?
Do you have a relationship with Jesus?
Do you go to church?
We all have our own beliefs. We are very much Bible-believing, Jesus-following Christians. We've had some really great friends who were living as kings. They have everything, like a house, family, money, cars, and all of that. And yet, they still were unhappy.
They're missing one thing! We've watched families go from the top of the mountains to having everything they thought they needed. And then it all suddenly came crashing down. They would lose it all because of their spiritual spoke.
We've seen them be so unhappy, but things don't actually bring you joy. You might think it does. You might feel like if you lose 50 pounds, it will bring you joy. It won't! If you're not working on your soul. Money's never going to buy you happiness. Your fat loss will not bring you true joy.
So, I would challenge you, as you're working on different areas of your life, to not ignore your spiritual spoke. If you don't have a relationship with Jesus, you probably have an emptiness inside of you and you might even feel like something's missing.
If you have everything, the house, the car, the job, the kids, and the family, but you still feel empty. Dig deep inside of you and work on your spiritual spoke. You can reach out to me, and I will give you some ideas of what to do.
If you've never downloaded this app before, it's a free app called the "YouVersion" Bible app. Oftentimes people don't even know where to start. Sometimes people were hurt by churches growing up, and I totally get it. Some religions hurt people, but I'm not talking about religion or rules. I'm talking about a relationship.
So if you never want to step foot in a church again, but you just want guidance, download the "YouVersion" Bible app. It's free and there are plans that you can walk through that will help you with your spiritual spoke.
Alright! If you have questions, reach out. There are a lot of different tools that we can give you to help you on that journey. We've been on that journey for years and that's the number one most important thing that will help you in all areas of your life.
So with that, thank you for going through the book with me. We haven't decided on a new book but I'm pretty sure my husband and I are going to go through some different life lessons that we've learned over the years. I hope you guys have an incredible day and I'll talk to you next time. Thanks for tuning in. Bye, everybody!
