According to Simon T. Bailey, author of "Release Your Brilliance," ...
"Each of us is born brilliant. Then we spend
the rest of our lives having our brilliance buried by
people, circumstances, and experiences. Eventually, we
forget that we ever had genius and special talents, and our
brilliance is locked away in a vault deep within. So we
settle for who we are, instead of striving for who we were
meant to be."
If only we could retrieve the innocent ego we were born with. Not an ego of boastfulness, but one that propels us to be the best we can be, and to expect the same of others.
Yes, I am an idealist.
