Garrett Loporto's wonderful book describes what he calls the Davinci type personality. According to Garrett most successful entrepreneurs, inventors, rock stars are Davinci types who harness the power of their personalities.
If you are wondering why you have not yet made your millions this book is a good place to start looking for the answer.
Being a Davinci type can have its downside. Because of your Davinci personality your behaviour probably meant you did not fit in easily when you were young and adults shamed you until you learnt to suppress your natural instincts. If I had $5 for every time my father said "I do not understand you" I would have been independently wealthy before I finished school.
Loporto points out that suppressing your instincts can lead to:
- Listlessness & Depression
- Feeling like a Fraud
- Fear of Success
If any of this resonates with you then read this book. I have just started to read it for the second time and I feel sure I will read it a few more times after that.
I'm now excited about my future instead of fearing it! And, I'm 51 years old!
I was a bit harsh on the author. After seeking to understand the process more closely, I have to say that the process really may have a great impact on not only adults but even more important the youths in our society that are being robbed of their lives by being put on drugs for their ADD & ADDHD.
If a more spiritual, mystical (Jedi Night, "the force") is in order then so be it. Anything... Anything at all to help these youths that are gifted yet are being condemned to a drug altered life.
- High Energy
- Highly Creative
- Sensation Seeking
- Adventurous Risk takers
This book is full of practical and useful tools for helping both father and son achieve their full potential and live happy, fulfilling lives. I didn't realize the angst and frustration that abiding by the rules and the status quo of society could cause people with DaVinci type personalities. I knew my husband was a rebel, but I thought it was immaturity. I didn't realize this is part of his gift!
I learned that DaVincis who are able to express themselves freely can become amazingly successful. I always knew my husband could be brilliant, but I never understood his unusual ways until I read this book.
This book is very healing. It is full of processes that "neurotic" DaVincis can use to heal their wounds from growing up in an industrialized society intolerant of their creative temperament. Apparently our school systems can do a lot of damage to young DaVincis and The DaVinci Method helps adult DaVincis heal those wounds that often lead to frustration, addiction and self-sabotage. My husband is benefiting already.
Meanwhile, The DaVinci Method is also helping me help my son avoid these negative "shaming" experiences as he grows up. Now I have the tools to help him respect and love his unique gift - the same tools that the mothers of Thomas Edison and Richard Branson apparently used to raise their own amazingly successful DaVinci kids.Read more ›
This book also helps you find the track to keep your enthusiasm alive. You're not going to get to your goal if you're driven solely by mental ambition; you need that enthusiasm that comes from the heart to sustain you through thick and thin. The DaVinci Method will show you how.
Most other entrepreneur and business books give you lists of action steps or formulas to blindly follow, but what they don't do is show you how to build in your own inner sense of knowing, in any given moment, what the best move is. If you can feel your enthusiasm you know you are lined up to hit that ball out of the park.
