All this time, I frequently heard some words like this. “A was succeed because he had talent,” “B since born was genius, not surprise knowing that he become successful people now,” and etc… etc.. In our daily life, I guess you were too often hear things like that. Many people assume that success, intelligence, expertise is something that is pure acquired from birth. Many of them make excuses so they do not have to try. In fact, although talent is one factor that has influence on the success of someone, but it is not the only factor. If you ever watch the movie “Forest Gump” starring Tom Hanks, you certainly know what I mean. A fool could be succeed as long there is a will. And here are some stories of great people of their era that will open our eyes. That success is not derived from talent alone, but a strong will and unyielding attitude.

As he grew, Einstein built models and mechanical devices for fun and began to show a talent for mathematics

Nowdays, there are many conflicts around sibling in a family. So many people even fight each other more seriously when they grown up. What i most found in real life is the conflicts between sibling (brother / sister) who fight each other to obtain heritage when their parents is gone.

This is one of my favorite story about Wisdom. This story happened on Zhou Dynasty in China, when Confucius live. Confucius was a thinker and social philosopher, whose teachings and philosophy have deeply influenced Asian people thought and way of life. In this story, we can learn that wisdom doesn’t mean that we have to be correct all the time. As we can see together, almost all trouble in this world happen when everyone argue each other which one is right and which one is wrong. Sometimes, we forget what the most important is… Let’s learn from this story what called wisdom.
Yan Hui was Confucius’s favorite disciple who love learning, he also have a good personality.
One day when Yan Hui was on duty, he saw a fabric store was surrounded by many people. He approached and found a buyer and seller of fabric is being debated.

Yan Hui fabric buyers approached and said: “My friend, 3 X 8 = 24, no longer debatable.”
