Did Not Do Well In School

Some of the most brilliant, creative people I know did not do well at school.  Many of them didn’t really discover what they could d0 – and who they really were – until they’d left school and recovered from their education.

The Element p. 9 – Sir Ken Robinson

A big part of figuring out who you are and your identity is to learn who you are not – and then not be that.  Many people though live out the lie – that they’re not good enough – that no one would read their stuff – that they don’t matter.  I could rip on the school systems that taught us to live out these lies and killed the creativity within us – or we can be about helping individuals learn who they truly are and help them become that.

Be brilliant.  Be creative.  Be a C student.  It doesn’t matter – so long as you are in your element.
