Brilliance some are born with it, but others create it over time. It lightens the foulest of hearts and pierces the darkest of nights to lead us on the right path of our future destinies.
Skill gives you legs to jog, talent gives you legs to run, brilliance gives you legs to sprint, but genius gives you wings to fly.
You are one thought away from intelligence, one word away from kindness, one deed away from excellence, one step away from brilliance, and one second away from transcendence.
Stir the world with your skills, shake the world with your talents, move the world with your brilliance, change the world with your genius.
Skill follows the rules, talent breaks the rules, mastery shatters the rules, but genius makes its own rules.
One who thinks for himself is a threat to his enemies, a refuge to his acquaintances, a prize to his friends, and a gift to the world.
Confuse them with your intelligence, baffle them with your excellence, bewilder them with your brilliance, and perplex them with your transcendence.
Brilliance is the masterpiece of your mind. Excellence is the masterpiece of your heart. Genius is the masterpiece of your soul.
Let your work speak for itself:If poor, it will remain silent.If average, it will whisper.If good, it will talk.If great, it will shout.If genius, it will sing.
If you are a musician,sing to one as if you were singing to a million.If you are a dancer,dance to one as if you were dancing to a million.If you are a performer,perform to one as if you were performing to a million.
Dream what others do not.Imagine what others have not.Do what others will not.Achieve what others could not.
Renounce poor work.Shun trivial work.Entertain respectable work.Welcome superior work.Honor transcendent work.
Stand out because you think differently.Stand out because you speak differently.Stand out because you act differently.Stand out because you work differently.Stand out because you live differently.
