Don't settle for less
Go see the movie “A Beautiful Mind.”
It is the story of a man who would not settle on being less than extraordinary.
John Nash had a great mind. He saw the world as a consequence of mathematical equations.
His world was logical.
His world was rational.
And, his world was insane, for you see, John Nash also saw things which did not exist. He had conversations with imaginary people. His delusions were as real as his reality. Medication made the imaginary people disappear . . . but also his genius.
So, with courage and conviction, he faced his demons on the strength of his mind alone.
Russell Crowe, who played Nash in the movie, said this when accepting the Golden Globe award: “We must believe that in our lives, something extraordinary can happen.”
No, we aren’t all destined to discover the mathematical truths of the universe, but we are all destined for something . . . something extraordinary.
I know it’s easy to lose sight of that. In the middle of doing the mundane, the extraordinary seems unimaginable, unbelievable, certainly unattainable.
But imagine you must.
Believe you must.
Attain you must.
You are here to accomplish something extraordinary.
Search for it, then dig deeper.
Find your something extraordinary.
