If you’ve ever wanted to be truly happy with the life you are living, then you’re reading the right article. That’s because you’re about to discover my easy 6-step method for uncovering your hidden genius.
And the good news is that this method works no matter what stage in life you are in.
Step 1: Getting Clear On You
Many people who’re new to becoming conscious creators of their lives don’t even realize that they need to do this step before they can start the journey. And that’s why a lot of people who are trying to reinvent themselves end up failing or right back where they started – they’re missing this critical step.
You’ll find that this part of the process goes much more smoothly I you apply these tips and tricks:
- Define your top 5 Core Values (if you don’t know yours please check out FreeGiftFromJoyce.com to get started)
- Re-evaluate your dreams with your top 5 Core Values to see what would really make you happy
- Post your top 5 Core Values somewhere you can see them so that anytime you are looking to make a decision you can align with your core values
Once you’ve gotten clear on who you are and what will make you the happiest, then you can move on to the next step…
Step 2: Engage In Your Purpose
The next thing you need to do is Engage In Your Purpose.
When I first started looking to define my purpose, I made the topic quite heavy. I felt like it was something that was outside of me that I had to go find. When I discovered it was a combination of my talents AND my passions, it made identifying my purpose super simple and a lot more fun!
In order to help you speed this process up for yourself, let me steer you away from these 3 mistakes people make when trying to define their purpose.
- Looking outside of yourself to define what your purpose is
- Not trusting that the things you are naturally talented at and passionate are your gifts
- Feeling like because what you are good at is ‘so easy for you’ that you need to work hard to be successful and can’t just relax into the possibility of it being easy and fun!
After working with a client to uncover this we often take a look at whether a meditation or other spiritual practice can assist the client in learning how to tap into their own knowing of what is right for them.
Step 3: Navigate Your Fears & Doubts
At this step you’re likely to notice lots of fear and doubt thoughts cluttering your mind. So, what you need to do is learn how to manage and maybe even eliminate that noise. And perhaps we can even start to learn how to think better feeling thoughts so we can get what we want even faster!
I’ve written a few other blog posts that talk about how I have overcome my fears and doubts throughout my life.

Step 4: Implement Your Plan
After you get those fears and doubts under control it’s time to make a plan of action for how you are going to get from where you are now to living the life you dream about. For each individual this can look completely different but breaking down the dream into actionable steps with dates for completion and setting you up with someone to hold you accountable will help you move closer to your dream with ease.
This is the part I love working most with clients to design because this is where we can be really creative about how we are going to achieve the dream. It’s where I can help shine the light on the parts of my clients’ soul they have covered up throughout life. Those moments of clarity and confidence are my favorite.
Step 5: Uniqueness Is Your Key
Did you know it’s a good thing to be unique?
Did you get told as a kid to be “seen and not heard” or to “not stand out”?
What if who you were being in those moments was exactly what you needed to tap into now to live a life without limits.
When I work with clients through this stage I create a safe space to allow the client to share all of the parts of themselves they’ve kept hidden. We work on healing those wounds that are left open as well as work to foster the qualities that make them unique.
Step 6: Stay Connected
During this step you need to focus on creating a community around you that is open to letting you be who you are. This community can include:
- Groups that support your interest (kayaking club or the travel club)
- Friends (maybe new ones)
Working through these 6 steps can take as little as 90 days but for most people it’s year long or more journey. And this journey needs to be repeated every time you are at a stage of reinventing yourself. The easiest way to make these transition times easier is to have a stable community of support. I’d love to have you find a home here with us.
I hope you enjoyed learning about the 6 steps you need to continually work through to Uncover Your Hidden Genius and start living a life without limits.
