Hey Louis, thank you for sharing. It’s so true, we’re attracted to talented people such as geniuses. Because they are so rare and fascinating. So far from reality. Funny how we’re attracted to both extremes — reality tv as well as talent shows.

The danger is as you mention: mistakenly putting down someone’s talent to genius. And using that as an excuse not to try. And by not daring to have big goals, we can’t even attempt to understand why these ‘genuises’ or exceptionally motivated people do what they do.

Cheers for an uplifting, motivating, and insightful post Louis :)
