“Be inspired by great men lives through their famous passages”

“When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bonds: Your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction, and you find yourself in a new, great, and wonderful world. Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive, and your discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be.”

Brilliance Is Not A Qualification To Succeed


Brilliance Is Not A Qualification To Succeed


Too often we fall into the trap of labeling people. We look at someone’s degrees and label them brilliant. We applaud people based on their diplomas, degrees and certificates. You can have more degrees than a thermometer, but be as cold as ice when it comes to important things like relationships, love, commitment, understanding…

“People don’t care how much we know, they care how much we care about them. They are about what is really important, like helping them achieve their goals.”
Brilliance isn’t found in a diploma or an award, it’s found in your heart. The word brilliance means ‘great brightness; radiance/sparkle.’ The word brilliant in French means ‘to shine’ Why don’t you decide today to go out and shine some light in someone’s life.

Brilliance is not about diplomas on walls. It is about get-up-and-go, intuition, instinct, perception, initiative, enthusiasm, a ‘can do’ attitude, and an ability to see things that can be done, without complaining about what can’t be done. Don’t be concerned about the brilliance you may or may not have as far as an education is concerned. If you have a hunger to learn, then you are going to be brilliant.

Challenge: Think about the things in your life that are your strengths. Write them down. What are the characteristics of your life that make you brilliant and unique? It is easy to find the negatives, but I want you to make a conscious effort to find the positives and list them.
