“There Are Three Types of People in This World: Those Who Make Things Happen, Those Who Watch Things Happen and Those Who Wonder What Happened”
Why dumb people get dumber
It is often a belief that those who perform exceptionally, perform better because of a natural born gift. We are all born with advantages and disadvantages, but to attribute exceptional performance solely as a result of a ‘natural born gift’ is pure stupidity. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out (or does it ?) that exceptional performance is a result of consistent practice and dedication.
If you ever want to kill your brain quickly without pain (It’s possible). I encourage you to do the following. One, stop asking questions. Two, stop the pursuit of anything out of your immediate reach. This is a formula that will ensure you spiral into a black hole of nothingness. Without curiosity and the will power to push yourself out of your comfort zone, you will not grow (I promise). I dare say, these are the things dumb people do not do, which keep them in a downward spiral of doom.
Desire and perseverance are the two most important attributes needed for development. These two attributes force one to engage in regular mental combat, which then leads to the development of greater (kung-fu like) cognitive agility. That sounds cool, right? I bet. Lets elaborate. To be an outlier, “Genius”, polyglot or kung fu panda (I had to throw that in lol) one has to ask many questions (desire) and then follow through (perseverance) with the search for the answers. It’s in your best interest to want to find the answers you’re looking for, otherwise you’re going to be a half hearted joke. Guess what? They’re not funny.
A desire of some sort beats in the hearts of all successful people. You need not have a desire to deliver a mediocre performance, no. However, to perform exceptionally one needs have a strong desire for an outcome. This desire could be a lifestyle, a skill or possibly an answer to a question e.g how can we improve the way we search the internet? Answer. Damn that was a good question, and a whopping result. Do you see where I’m going with this?
Desire is nothing without perseverance. Do you think Google answered the question first time round? Do you think Leonardo da Vinci’s first painting was a masterpiece? Do you think Kung fu panda …..I think you get the point. In the face of discouragement, ridicule and uncertainty you need to keep your eyes on the prize (desire)
