A Multipotentialite is a person who has many different interests and creative pursuits in life.
Multipotentialites have no “one true calling” the way specialists do.
Contrary to our belief system this definition leads us to think in a broader view, it allows us to explore our self, test our limits and achieve things we never knew we are capable of. I firmly believe that why should we stick to one thing when we are capable of doing more things.
Why some of us never have a true calling?
Ever since childhood, we have been programmed in such a manner that we start believing that we should concentrate on one thing at the given moment and make it big in the same field in the future. But there exist, creative souls, who are good at so many things, someone could be a painter and a chef at the same time and someone could be a strategist, pianist and a singer at the same time.
Mulitpotentialites are simply the people who are passionate about doing so many creative things together. Like one could be a great singer but is a guitarist too, dances well and is an extremely talented painter. This group of people never get bored in life as they have so many things to make their life interesting and get going.
But there is always a fear of losing the game as with the enthusiasm of doing so many things at once keeps pondering you, it also gives you are a fear of losing things half-way or being not able to complete the last task might leave you with disappointment.
When you want to do so many things together, you might be labeled as an irresponsible or immature person because you don’t stick to one thing. You are being judged on the basis of lack of commitment you show to one task at times and go for another one, which could, for others mean anything from not being serious to being irresponsible and careless.

Being everything is being a Multipotentialite
Not everyone can relate to this idea of being a Multipotentialite but yes you need to walk and take those tiny steps in order to accomplish things you want to do for your self as when you look back you will see that you managed to travel a lot of distance.
To feel less anxious about this: You could utilize your skills to earn more, by writing in your particular field, coaching, or even speaking. The important thing is not to give up on your interests; instead, look at them closely and see how you can proactively pursue them to better your situation.

In the end, it’s all about perspective. A quote by George Carlin sums it rather well.
“Some people see the glass half full. Others see it half empty. I see a glass that’s twice as big as it needs to be.”
When you have that constant urge to do so many things than just write it down, prepare a To-Do-List and start with one of them.
Prominent Examples of Multipotentialite Personalities are Leonardo da Vinci, Benjamin Franklin, Isaac Newton, Thomas Jefferson, Maya Angelou to name few.
Go for it!! Even if you have so many interests just follow them, focus on your core strengths and you will surely succeed!!
Quick Fact: Human brain Most computational neuroscientists tend to estimate human storage capacity somewhere between 10 terabytes and 100 terabytes, though the full spectrum of guesses ranges from 1 terabyte to 2.5 petabytes. One terabyte is equal to about 1,000 gigabytes or about 1 million megabytes; a petabyte is about 1,000 terabytes. So Why not make the most out of it 🙂
Much love and gratitude
