Follow Your Curiosity
I have no special talent.
I am only passionately curious.
Perseverance is Priceless
“It's not that I'm so smart;
it's just that I stay with problems longer.”
The Imagination is Powerful
“The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge, but imagination.” Are you exercising your “imagination muscles” daily, don’t let something as powerful as your imagination lie dormant lie dormant.
“Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life's coming attractions. Imagination is more important than knowledge.”
Discover the power of making mistakes. I’ve said this before, and I’ll say it again, if you want to succeed, triple the amount of mistakes that you make.
“Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value.
Labour to be valuable and success will chase you down”
