You are brilliant !!!
I read a quote on the internet a few days ago. The source of it is debatable but that’s not important, because it makes perfect sense: “Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid”. So let me tell you why you are a brilliant, unique person.I believe that every one of us is born with a shining soul and a brilliant mind. And each of us have our own path to follow in life. Someone is born to be a famous musician, someone to cure cancer, someone to bring peace to the world, someone to eradicate hunger. And ever since childhood, these paths are starting to be covered in mud by others. Starting with parents. They PUSH the child to the path that THEY never succeeded. They push the kid to be a lawyer, they push the kid to be a doctor, when he might have an artist soul.
Then comes the educational system, who’s mistake is to treat every child the same. Your soul is thrown into a blending machine with 25-30 others. That is when some serious layers of mud are being thrown over your brilliance.
After that, you get a random job, you get a girl/boyfriend, but yet… something is missing. At the end of the day, when you lean your head onto your pillow you can’t say “I am happy”. That is when you need to find a shovel and start digging. You need to start experimenting. Find your soul. Find out what do you like, find out what do you hate and let it drive you. No matter what it is, no matter what others say, follow it. There is no greater regret in life than “I should have done that”.
I need to close this post now, I am really really tired after having 3 speeches today, but I promise I will come back to this subject soon enough.
