“I am the one who shapes my destiny. I refuse to let a piece of paper shape it for me.”
Edison wasn’t a straight A+ student, neither was Bill Gates or Richard Branson. What they did have, was an unwavering faith in themselves, and a belief that they could be all that they wanted to be regardless of what others thought of them. Even if their teachers called them dyslexic, even if the people around them thought that they were retards.
What makes us any different?
So are we going to give up, to lose faith in ourselves just because a piece of paper tells us that we aren’t perfect? Are we going to let tiny, printed alphabets on a piece of paper determine our ultimate value as humans?
Always remember that every single one of us is special and talented in our very own ways. Our little unique traits that make us who we are. Those are the things that give us value. What’s important is that we never stop developing our unique talents, and never, ever, compromise on being what we want to be.
