Everybody Is A Genius

“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.”

Albert Einstein is often credited with this wonderful quote, but it may actually have come from a variety of different sources, which is quite fitting given its subject matter. It takes all sorts of people with all sorts of different talents and skills to create positive things in the world.

If you keep telling someone that they are stupid simply because they are not as good at something as you are, well, that’s just stupid. We each are unique, and we each have talents (and lack thereof). The people who are considered geniuses, they are the people who found their spark and applied it to something that worked out well for them.

People are ridiculed and scorned all over the planet because they aren’t as good at something as people consider to be “normal.” We need to recognize that none of us are perfectly normal, much less perfect.

Many times in life we are told that we are not good enough or smart enough, but I am here to tell you to erase these untrue notions from your memory. Everyone is smart in their own way, and in spite of not feeling confident in a moment, we must all be sure of our abilities. As humans, we all have strong suits and weaknesses.

We all have something to offer and we all have certain gifts. Focus on what your good at and build on your strengths. Become an expert in your field and you will be able to find meaning and purpose in your life.
