An educated mind can change the world.
Being smart is like a pawn on a chessboard. In the game of chess, you use a pawn to make a strategic move. However, pawns can also be sacrificed. The sacrifice of a pawn is called intelligence.
Let’s put this into perspective. Being smart means:
You graduated high school
You got into the college you wanted
You earned a degree and got a job
You followed the rules and played things safe
You sacrificed extraordinary for being just like everyone else
That’s what “being smart” looks like.
Now, let’s look at intelligence.
You take risks
You come up with plans and set them in motion
Your dreams aren’t a joke to you
You are a doer, not just a talker
You don’t take a preconceived notion into a new environment
When networking, you’re building relationships
You seek information with a pure heart and mind so the knowledge will sink in
Don’t settle for just being the “smart” person who settled for the ordinary life. Be intelligent. Think of an idea, come up with a plan, and set it into motion. Don’t hold back. Become truly educated.
An educated mind can change the world. An educated mind can change the family.
