Luck Isn’t Everything

Doing well in school is, predominantly,

a sign of good luck.”

Someone needs to remind the unlucky children that their grades do not determine their personal worth nor their future successes or failures.

Someone needs to remind the unlucky children that many of the world’s most prodigious thinkers of past and present have been fellow unlucky children, who either flunked, fled, or forced themselves to finish despite knowing full well they were wasting their time.

Someone needs to remind the unlucky children that intelligence isn’t the ability to acquire accolades, it’s the ability to acquire and apply of knowledge.

Someone needs to remind the unlucky children that there are plenty of other places, better places, even besides school to acquire and apply knowledge.

Someone needs to remind the unlucky children that you don’t have to “let your schooling interfere with your education.” (I  love you, Mark Twain!)

 

Someone needs to remind the unlucky children that luck isn’t everything.
