“Everyone Is a Genius”
…”But if you judge a fish on its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing it is stupid.” Einstein’s quote reminds us to think twice before measuring ourselves (and others) against inappropriate standards.
Everyone has a different ability or particular “genius.” Often, comparing yourself to someone else’s abilities might mean overlooking what it is you are naturally more suited towards doing. In other words, stop being a fish trying to climb a tree and embrace your fishiness. The point: We’re not all made to be theoretical physicists. Aim for what you’re good at, work hard for what you want, and don’t beat yourself up when you can’t do everything perfectly.
