7th RSB: Lack of exploration
El futuro autor es alguien que descubre que el lenguaje, la exploración y manipulación de los recursos del lenguaje, le servirán para ganar a través de su camino. (The future author is one who discovers that language, the exploration and manipulation of the resources of language, will serve him in winning through to his way.)
Some people called as teachers teach you about social, historical, economical and many other facts and enhance your knowledge. Being ignorant about those concepts and statistics, you tend to believe them as per the knowledge given by your tutor.
Did you ever thought if there would be something else not taught by your teacher to you? Might be possible, he is himself not aware of that.
Come out of that bookish world because that is just the part of the actual world shown to you by the authors. You do not see the world by your own perceptions but through the views presented by the authors in their writings.
The thing which is more important to do is to EXPLORE the world by your own perceptions.
It’s good to be studious but it limits your success to your academics, teachers will never care if you know beyond that or not because they just want to enhance their self-image by your good academic score.
Albert Einstein, the greatest scientist ever born, had a wonderful and inspirational history. If you know, he was suspended from his school by the headmaster due to his poor performance. As according to the headmaster, the picture of school was getting tainted by his interminable poor academic result.
In actual, Einstein was more into exploring the real world existing beyond what is being described in the book. The questions asked by him would irk the teachers as they were not in those printed leaves resulting into the uncomplimentary situation for those so-called teachers.
He cannot be called a poor achiever; it is just that he was intelligent in an extraordinary manner. He had the ability to explore the thoughts and concepts and courage to oppose the lessons taught to him which was intolerable by his school tutors.
At the time, when he was asked to drop the school, he did not mind it for he knew what was right and what is more necessary for him.
Certainly true, it is better to get rid of the place where your thoughts are not appreciated even if you are right. Exploration is a great thing. If you ever stand with a crowd, you will never be called a failure. You would be more than successful because the thoughts in your mind will be your own without being manipulated by that of authors’.
The important thing is not to stop questioning.— Albert Einstein
8th RSB: Lack of imagination
El hombre que no tiene imaginación no tiene alas. (The man who has no imagination has no wings.)
In earlier times, a cartoonist went to a studio to show his creativity and express his thoughts. Although he had full confidence in what he created and had strong believe that his thoughts would certainly be favored, yet he faced rejection and had to move out with a heavy-heart. He sat on the footpath and got really worried, he could not think of anything new, was hopeless and broken.
Few mice were prowling there in search of food, passing-by near that man, something struck on his mind. He went home and started to create some new unexpected creatures. Fortunately, his creativity was welcomed and it got famous as the Mickey Mouse.
Walt Disney, being so saddened by his failure, would have never thought of such a great success. After his lose, his mind got lighten up by the street mice.
JK Rowling got the idea of Harry Potter when she was in a train watching an orphan boy standing outside on the platform. It was her imagination that made her to create such marvelous characters.
All successful people men and women are big dreamers. They imagine what their future could be, ideal in every respect and then they work every day toward their distant vision, that goal or purpose.— Brian Tracy
Never lose the power of imagination, it worth a lot. You never know what creativity you can develop out of what object by your imagination.— Felishiya Fiamma
