Genius Not Required

I am not a genius!

(Surprised? Don’t be.)

In fact, it seems I have to work longer and harder than most in order to achieve what seemingly comes easily for others.

I don’t know why, that’s just how it is.

Lucky for me,…

What It Takes
It is not men of genius who move the world and take the lead in it, so much as men of steadfastness, purpose, and indefatigable industry. ~ Samuel Smiles (Self-Help)

So, I’m not a genius and things may not come easily for me, but,…

… can I be a man of steadfastness?

Yes I can!

… can I be a man of purpose?

Absolutely!!

… can I be a man of indefatigable industry?

You better believe it!!!

With these three character traits fully employed, genius is not required.
