Why is the phenomenon of the Gifted Trap — challenges gifted and talented adults face — rarely talked about openly?

Frankly, when you are blatantly talented, you are “expected” to be successful.  After all you have been “gifted” with all the ingredients it takes to have it all.   Right? … Not necessarily.

As children the “gifted” ones are singled out and offered the support they need to achieve success.  As adults that support system disappears … unless you are lucky enough to find a mentor to guide you and help you live into your greatness.

 The Gifted Trap experience is about choosing and implementing a new way of being.  You simply “choose” a new path.

What are the pathways that lead a gifted and talented person into the trap?

Three typical points of entry into the “Trap”:

1.  Pinnacle of SuccessSuccess often breeds separation and alienation.  The better you are at something the more you are envied and alienated because your greatness makes others uncomfortable.

2. Time of Transition —  Voluntary or involuntary, change is challenging.  Talented people sometimes “tap-out … top-out … age-out or forced-out” requiring them to find new ways to channel their gifts and reframe who they are in the world.

3. Point of Desperation Playing small to fit in and feel safe fosters depression and disease.   Knowing you have greatness within you, and are not living up to your potential, is painful.  Left in this state for lengthy periods, begins to manifest in the form of physical or emotional illness – a state of “Dis-Ease”.

Often gifted and talented adults are plagued with SECRET internal questions:

  • “With all this talent, why can’t I do it all – effortlessly?”
  • “ I know I am blessed. Why do I feel cursed?”
  • “My confidence is high.  Why is my self-esteem so low?”
  • “Who can I trust to tell the truth to … that won’t use it against me?”
  • “Without my title, who am I?”
  • “How much more do I need to do to be Good Enough?”

These questions propel gifted and talented adults into a constant quest for perfection. The good news is … it is possible to get out of your trap.   There IS a way to FREE YOURSELF from the trap.

I found the release valve and created the “Gifted Trap” body of work to help others find the true gifts in their giftedness, and in so doing, design a more joyful life.
