“Everyone 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.”

– Albert Einstein

The bird is excellent at flying. The elephant is strong and excellent at heavy lifting. What would happen if we asked the elephant to fly and the bird to do the heavy lifting? I guess they would both feel like failures. But what about us humans? Often we expect ourselves to do something that others are great at but that we are not so good at ourselves. And then we feel like failures. Why do we do that?

I think we can learn something from animals. Find out what you are good at and do that and try to not compare yourself to others.
