The Lesson: Society is always trying to shame its individuals into conforming to the way things ought to be – but it’s those weird, strange little things about us that make up all the greatest innovations, breakthroughs, creations, and ideas in the world. So instead of making yourself bend to the superficiality of fitting in, why not embrace your weirdness instead?

Notable Excerpt: “It’s the calibration of such simple ingredients that – when brought together – creates that symphony of mastery. So I really want you to think about leaving any … form of superficiality in your understanding of humanity and leave that [way] of thinking, and rise up to the rare-air of world class.”
