Sharing is Caring!
If you keep explaining others' successes as proof of their inherent genius, you are only doing yourself a disservice.
Genius is not a congenital trait.
Genius loves company because geniuses are made, not born.
If composers and musicians are able to master their craft without vision, most of us can certainly work harder towards achieving excellence in something.
Maximize your output each day.
Think of scaling back on unproductive activities and habits. Re-think your peer group, are your friends motivated and productive?
We mimic behavior, it is part of human nature. What behavior would you like to mimic and master?
Surround yourself with positive people and those who would be willing to make substantive and constructive criticism.
Be a genius, mediocrity is way worse.
