Get the fish out of the tree!

I love this quote and it is so very true! There is more than one way to measure success... find ways to make people find their "genius" rather than pointing out the ways they are not successful. If you have a kid that struggles in math, focus on what he is doing well in school, or if he isn't doing well in school at all, measure success in another way. Maybe he is an amazing artist or singer, or perhaps just an overall great kid who is helpful to others. Remember, Albert Einstein's teacher told his parents he would never be able to learn and that he should be sent to a school for kids with special needs. Always find a way to lift and support kids and help them find their "genius" and Live Inspired Now!

Think outside the box, the genius often does not do well in school. Here are some famous high school drop outs: Andrew Jackson, Ray Charles, Cher, Peter Jennings, Lucille Ball, Whoopie Goldberg, Rosa Parks, Charlie Chaplin, Robert De Niro, Johnny Depp and more...

PS... not advocating for dropping out of school, but saying that there are others ways to be successful!
