Your Inner Genius

The concept of “genius” isn’t reserved for Albert Einstein, Thomas Edison, or Steve Jobs.

That’s just some BS that school taught you – that somehow those humans are exceptions to the rule, and that everyone else is a mere mortal.

You have the power to learn, achieve, and create anything you want.

Unleash it.

Quote of the Day

“Follow your bliss.
If you do follow your bliss,
you put yourself on a kind of track
that has been there all the while waiting for you,
and the life you ought to be living
is the one you are living.
When you can see that,
you begin to meet people
who are in the field of your bliss,
and they open the doors to you.
I say, follow your bliss and don’t be afraid,
and doors will open
where you didn’t know they were going to be.
If you follow your bliss,
doors will open for you that wouldn’t have opened for anyone else.”

― Joseph Campbell
