WHAT ICONIC LEADERS KNOW ABOUT SUCCESS
THE BIGGEST MYTH ABOUT BRAINPOWER SHATTERED
One of the biggest lies we were taught to believe about brainpower is that "You're either born with it or you're not.” So, it might seem, iconic leaders have achieved high levels of success, as a result of their superhuman brain powers.
Like, for example; the mythical image of Jeff Bezos creating an online empire in kindergarten. Steve Jobs having a computer in his crib when he was a baby, and Mark Zuckerberg creating a worldwide social network when he was three.
Is it any wonder that “ordinary” people believe that it's too difficult, and associate lack of brainpower as the reason for the struggle? If we become totally associated with the limiting belief we set goals “according to our skills.”
SHATTERING THE MYTH
Being the inquisitive seeker and curious person that I am, I had to find out if brainpower alone was the key to success. I wanted to know if people like Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos, were that different from you and me. I even wondered if they viewed themselves as mythical creatures with superhuman gifts.
For the past thirty-five years, I’ve studied high achievers. My conclusions are that these high-achievers aren’t necessarily smarter than mere humanoids, they just understand how their brains work and have made the best use of them.
These people are also curious creatures like me and are seeking new things. They are always boosting their brainpower to acquire new skills more efficiently. Mark Zuckerberg worked relentlessly on improving his critical thinking and problem-solving skills. Jeff Bezos is always experimenting with new ideas and ways to make the processes at his company more efficient.
Steve Jobs had the habit of questioning every rule and assumption to find new creative ideas.
Contrary to pop-culture, none of them were born with these skills, they developed them over time. When I realized this, my confidence grew, and I changed my beliefs and I started achieving way more.
