In the last video I explored with you the cheetah talent. The cheetah talent people naturally seek to retreat from others to contemplate about the things that matter to them. The cheetah talent people are good in thinking fast and reacting quickly. They find it easy to mentally calculate and process logical problems and equations. They quickly reason things out; they are intuitive and highly and disciplined in their thinking.
On this video, my purpose is to discuss with you the Ostrich Talent. Do you know ostrich? Ostrich is a bird, but it cannot fly and it is the world largest bird. Ostriches roam African savanna and desert lands and get most of their water from the plants they eat. Though they cannot fly, ostriches are fleet, strong runners. They can sprint up to 43 miles an hour and run over distance at 31 miles an hour. They may use their wings as "rudders" to help them change direction while running. An ostrich's powerful, long legs can cover 10 to 16 feet in a single stride. These legs can also be formidable weapons. Ostrich kicks can kill a human or a potential predator like a lion. Each two-toed foot has a long, sharp claw.
While God was teaching Job His wisdom on how to overcome his life problem, God raised the subject of ostrich. God said, “The wings of the ostrich flap joyfully, though they cannot compare with the wings and feathers of the stork. She lays her eggs on the ground and lets them warm in the sand, unmindful that a foot may crush them, that some wild animal may trample them. She treats her young harshly, as if they were not hers; she cares not that her labor was in vain, for God did not endow her with wisdom or give her a share of good sense. Yet when she spreads her feathers to run, she laughs at horse and rider" Job 39:13-18, (NIV).
Now, few things are very important for us to note in the life of ostrich. A notable one is, ostrich has her area of weaknesses yet God did not focus on that area of weakness. Rather, God focused largely on her area of strength. What does that imply to you?
The implication is that all of us have our area of weaknesses as well as our area of strength. And divine wisdom demands that you focus on your area of strength. That is the way to go. Ostrich has weakness in nursing her young, yet she is very successful in the wild.The secret of ostrich success in the wild is her physical ability. She uses her wings and legs in the most effective way. In Neuroscience, this is called the kinesthetic intelligence.
This talent refers to the ability of effectively controlling body movement. The people can enjoy doing sports and involvement in physical activities. Children with this talent don't learn like their counterparts. They learn most effectively by using the parts of their body. They don't enjoy learning while sitting, but while they are physically involved in the physical activities. They need to touch, feel and move things around in order for them to retain the information they learn. The ostrich is the animal that typifies this talent.
This type of intelligence involves coordination, balance, skill, speed, strength, and dexterity. In short, it relies on tactile mechanisms and human movement to get information. We can find high levels of kinesthetic intelligence in athletes, dancers, surgeons, artists and craftsmen, where accuracy in controlling body movements is a principal characteristic of their role.
An important example of kinesthetic intelligence is Michael Jordan. Do you know Michael Jordan? Michael Jordan is the greatest basketball player of all time. Although, a summary of his basketball career and influence on the game inevitably fails to do it justice, as a phenomenal athlete with a unique combination of fundamental soundness, grace, speed, power, artistry, improvisational ability and an unquenchable competitive desire, Jordan single-handedly redefined the NBA superstar.
Even contemporaneous superstars recognized the unparalleled position of Jordan. Magic Johnson said, "There's Michael Jordan and then there is the rest of us." Larry Bird, following a playoff game where Jordan dropped 63 points on the Boston Celtics in just his second season, appraisal of the young player was: "God disguised as Michael Jordan."
