5 Ways to Own Your Brilliance beyond a 9-to-5

Business advice from someone who has been there and done that! Tamiko Cuellar shares five ways to own your brilliance outside of the conventional workplace.

Head shot 39

Due to the growing global economy and the digital age, the way we think about using our talents has begun to shift our career paths from the conventional 9-to-5 jobs. The most brilliant thought leaders and creatives today are now forging their own careers on their own terms.

LOOK AT THE WORLD FROM THE LENS OF A PROBLEM SOLVER.

Innovation is birthed from necessity. The world has no shortage of problems, only talent to solve them.  Social media platforms were developed in part to remove the barrier of barriers which prevented people from connecting. What problem will you solve in this world?

ASSESS YOUR NATURAL GIFTS, SKILLS AND ABILITIES.

Whatever you can do well with the least amount of effort is a clue to uncover your brilliance. Your brilliance does not have to be limited to the conventional corporate workplace.  If you are entrepreneurial, then there are several ways that you could turn your ideas into income.

CONNECT WITH IDEAS AND OPPORTUNITIES THAT FUEL YOUR GROWTH.

Your brilliance in this world will shine brighter as you become more adept in your skill set. Learning is ongoing and you should always be a student. In addition to taking courses, attend webinars, go to conferences, read lots of books, or subscribe to your favorite blog or YouTube channel. These are ways to ensure that you will continue to develop the most cutting-edge and marketable skill sets in today’s competitive global marketplace.

SAY GOODBYE TO YOUR COMFORT ZONE.

The greatest things in life are achieved outside of the comfort zone. While the comfort zone might offer security and a steady paycheck from a 9-to-5 job, it might not give birth to your brilliance and allow you to live your fullest potential. You will shine the brightest in this world when you take risks and when you learn to use your failures and uncertainty to your advantage.

IF YOU ARE ENTREPRENEURIAL, SURROUND YOURSELF WITH LIKE-MINDED INDIVIDUALS.

You will find that your creativity is best used when there are no limitations. For many employees, the workplace can be stifling to their ingenuity, imagination, individuality, and ideas. This is often how entrepreneurs are born.  Entrepreneurs are naturally creative innovators. They often seek better ways to do things to achieve results and solve problems.

When you own your brilliance, you use it on your terms. You won’t allow it to be squelched or hampered by the limitations of society.  Taking this ownership of your gifts, talents, skill sets, and abilities means that you will determine how and where you use your brilliance for the greater good of this world – and without the income limitations of a conventional job.

THE WORLD IS WAITING FOR WHAT YOU HAVE TO OFFER!
