Have you ever been called a geek? For some, its negative feedback but for others it’s a badge of honor.
If you look up the word geek, Webster’s Dictionary defines a geek as many things, but one of the definitions I want to focus on is that of the “enthusiast or expert.”
Geek’s eat, sleep and live in their interests and they know what they love so well that they become content experts, that local guy who knows how to fix a computer, HTML code a website or take apart a car engine.
In middle school and high school, I was a weather geek and I didn’t care who knew it regardless of how quickly my popularity rating dropped!
But, the more I “geeked” out on Meteorology the better I got at reading forecast charts, weather maps and creating my own forecasts, all which later made me the go-to guy for weather updates every day.
Some are afraid of the label “geek” because it leaves an odd taste in the minds of people who want to be accepted by the world, but beware, if you hinder your “geekiness” then you are hindering your “greatness.”
Let me encourage you by saying that your geek moment may be someone’s guide moment and later people will recognize it all as a great moment!
