“Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing it is stupid.”
We are all born with unique and innate skills and talents. Over our school years we are tested in various different subjects and most of us will excel in some areas and not as much in others. This is well accepted majority of the time in our youth, however, as we grow older the expectations we place on ourselves become greater and the understanding of our unique skills tends to diminish. Sure hard work and effort can improve skill in lots of areas we would otherwise fall short in, however, awareness around our physiology and natural talents can help us utilise these to our advantage. What trees have you been too focusing on climbing, only to miss out on the oceans you could otherwise conquer?
