You have genius

We refer to people who achieve exceptional feats as ‘genius’.

Until a couple of centuries ago, genius wasn’t a person, but rather a trait. Much like the artistic muse, it was seen as a spirit that enters a person and enables her to perform wonderful feats. People weren’t genius – they had genius.

Every single one of us have had a great idea, an inspired thought or have solved a trickly problem. We have all had our moment of genius. Acts of genius are accessible to all of us. The definition of genius as a trait reflects this.

The people we call geniuses aren’t the ones who are born geniuses. Through dedication and practice, they can enter a zone of exceptional performance.

Everybody is a genius sometimes. Nobody is a genius all the time.
