As the class arrived and began taking their seats, they found the following on the chalk board:
One by one, they began to quietly mock him with their eyes, giggles and whispers as he had made a mistake. The correct answer for 9×10 is 90.
The professor waited for everyone to settle down and then said, “despite me answering the first nine questions correctly, no one congratulated me. Instead, when I get one wrong, everyone started making fun of me. This means that despite being very successful, society will only notice the smallest mistake and make fun of it. Don’t let simple criticism destroy your dreams”.
The professor? Albert Einstein. Maybe you have heard of him?
Good advice from a smart man.
Unfortunately, life often reflects that classroom.
One by one, day by day, we can choose to be different.
