Einstein once wrote “Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” We all have unique gifts and talents that are waiting to be discovered and realised. Not all talents can change the world like Einstein but they can bring immense happiness. If you recognize your talents and work incredibly hard, there is no limit to what you can achieve or how good you can feel about yourself in the process. It is well known that as a child, Einstein rarely spoke. When he did, he spoke very slowly – and his parents worried that he was mentally retarded. (by Prof. Simon Smith)
