Genius is not something you learn in books, but a gift you’re born with, that you believe in, that you exercise, that you learn from life experiences and opportunities.
Success in life is about analysis. Facts are irrelevant, you can look them up online. But how you put them together to create something new, that’s genius!
Geniuses are one step ahead and are ultimately decried and disliked for it because they aren’t following protocol. They don’t think within the box. They don’t care how things supposed to be done. They have insight into what might be possible.
Or as Gretzky put it, skate to where the puck is going, not where it is right now.
