Today I was reading an article containing a widely known fact about Albert Einstein. In his life, despite being a genius, he failed mathematics.
How many of you reading this think it’s true?
How many of reading this think it’s false?
How many of you really don’t know ?
Well, I was one of the people who believed it, until today when I did some digging and found out it’s not true.
It’s one of those things that I heard one time and it made me feel 1000 times better about my struggles with math. “Well, if even Einstein struggled, I don’t feel so bad. Let me take another crack at solving that formula.”
It was useful to believe it when I was trying to motivate myself to rise above a problem so if it comes up, I will say believing this lie helped me, and I now know ít to be false.
It got me thinking about other things that I might be “certain” about, but are in fact, “dead wrong”?
Could it be there is a political issue or belief you hold about certain groups that isn’t actually true, it’s just a habit to keep believing something that isn’t true and no longer serves you?
Think About It.
