Hidden Gifts

 

“…Mediocrity is self-inflicted and genius is self-bestowed. The genius does not differ from others in their access to the light within, only in their confident acceptance of its natural outstreaming. There is a hidden genius in each person, which each of us gives expression to through commitment, discipline, and the enthusiasm that works with passion. Einstein once said that genius is 1 percent inspiration and 99 percent perspiration.”
