No matter how smart you are, how much money you have, how many Facebook/MySpace/SecondLife/real.world friends you’ve amassed, what cool companies you work with, how deep your bloodline runs, how beautiful your car, computer, phone, house, partner is :: none of it really counts until you do something that only YOU came here to do. Unlike anyone else.
When you’re in the company of someone who is doing their life’s work it’s almost impossible not to be profoundly rocked.
I’ve just been through a heavy course that walloped me back into my Maxness. Part of what defines me is the Hunter of Genius gene:: I’m lucky enough to know some of the exceptional people who are powerfully influencing South Africa.. people who are brave enough to have surrendered the safe options to follow their vision. [Respect to those whose lifework is to open the way for others to live their dreams. Confidently. We need more of you guys]
This isn’t about feeding the cult of celebrity: where you’re only worthy if you’ve been on TV, earn a million a month, or recognised at the supermarket. It IS about celebrating the genius of YOUR unique coding & expresssion. Like Van Gogh, Tesla or Bach, many brilliant humans sadly blazed in anonymity or died in poverty, their gift to humanity discovered a little late. Outward success is not a reliable indicator of future radiance. It’s not a bad idea to get the word out a little earlier, because the world isn’t good at rewarding those who don’t market themselves, no matter how talented or brilliant.
As with every age or movement, it’s always the strength of the characters & individuals who colour the stories and drive social evolution. I’m cracking open my black.book to celebrate those who rock my world.
So every Monday at SARocks will be devoted to someone I’m excited to share with you.. to connect, inspire or support..
