Why do great people come from crazy situations? Why does the underdog sometimes win?
Einstein hated the education he received when he was a kid. He was written off as a kid with no brains, except by his math teacher. Einstein never understood why you had to memorize all those dates of wars and revolutions when he was only interested in knowing why it happened. But this helped him to find his innate ability in Science and Math which may not have surfaced with the potential with which it did.
Imagine a student in a class where he was taught nothing he found of interest. His lack of interest in what he was forced to study, would result in him finding what he really loved and would automatically make him develop those innate talents with the same zeal with which he would love to get rid of those subjects he finds boring.
And there are times when the student may be so determined to excel that his hard work would result in him finding a love for the subject that did not exist before because he has already reached a level where what he studies is so easy and interesting.
Well, in both cases the person emerges with a talent and potential that he did not have before.
But then why doesn’t everyone become great?
Because most times you don’t funnel your boredom and your hard work into the right things.
There is a reason why you are in the situation you are in. There is a purpose for your life. So today pray about how to spend your time make sure you don’t waste it. We all waste time. None of us are perfect. But since we never are perfect there is always room to change.
