“Creativity is Greater than Circumstance”
– Jason Goldberg
Creativity forms the foundation of a life of Playful Prosperity: Our innate ability to focus on resourcefulness of resources is the hack towards life mastery shares Jason.
He emphasizes that it’s not about neglecting your current situation and burying your head in the sand, rather its about faces the challenges of life head-on and allowing your creativity to rise above the challenges, to play with the interpretations, to play with the expectations, to play with the resources we have at our disposal.
Jason vulnerably shares that he was always a joyful jokey type of person on the outside but a long time ago it used to be cultivated from a place of self-hatred. Growing up he was 135kg and he was really heavy his entire life and from a young age, he was ridiculed for being overweight so he had this overwhelming feeling of not-enoughness and not-fitting-in. However, he found it very natural to make people laugh. It became his mechanism to getting love and approval so that he could form an “enoughness” of self through approval of others. It can as a security blanket/defense mechanism.
He shares that although this would appear on the surface as being a hindrance, he sees this now as the foundations of some of his super-powers. Humour and the ability to relate with people joyfully and empathetically. Comedic prowess, joy, humor, coupled with empathy and these things are now at the center of his own Business.
If you feel like you do not have a genius-zone or super-power, Jason says you’re just not remembering far enough back into your life (as a child or a teenager). Jason has found that looking back into your childhood past for: what you were praised for, got acknowledged for or got as a kid or whatever you got into trouble for in many cases. These are the things that are going to point you to your True Genius Zone.
