The second module taps into the heart of VOCCESS – it helps you find out what is your zone of genius. Your zone of genius is the filed, industry or career that you can be the most successful and become a real star. A lot of people say success is 2% talent and 98% effort. However, if we put the effort in the wrong direction is like having the perfect car without an engine. This is why we want to place all our efforts in our zone of genius. We are all born with some inclinations towards certain activities or fields of activity. Those are the areas we are better at and we do with more ease. What is more, we tend to have a passion in these areas and keeps us more motivated to continue our efforts in that direction.
However, the zone of genius is not composed of only our talents. It also takes into consideration our intelligence. As we all know there are several types of intelligence and all of us have one or two which are prevalent. The zone of genius is composed of our values too as they dedicated a great deal of our career.
The elements of your zone of genius are:
- Passion and interest
There are a couple of elements which might be new to you. The first one is the avatar and the second one is the concept of passion which is a bit different than what you have heard of. The avatar is your overall profile, the most generic one. This is not a profession, this is how you do things and your attitude towards all you do. Your avatar might be a merchant and you can be a manager, a designer a bartender. This is the special signature you use. Also, this is how you can start working on your personal brand, by adding that special touch only you have.
