Becoming Brilliant: The Power of Transcending Greatness

brilliant

To be brilliant is to be almost magical, beyond simple excellence. Brilliant people possess something that we just can’t explain. Yet we are obsessed with how they are able to aesthetically capture our attention and win our hearts.

The purpose of becoming brilliant is to transcend the ordinarily great in whatever endeavor in which we are involved. Going beyond the good is the activity of creativity. We produce something totally new and exciting, something that others don’t expect.

Decades ago we were content with the regular telephone and typewriter. These things were good for society on many levels. However, today, we are riding on a new wave of technological creation, including automation, mobile technology, and AI, providing a whole new world of creative brilliancy. In all these instances, if we were only content with the good, the new entities of brilliancy would have never happened.

Becoming Brilliant: A Highly Effective Pursuit

Therefore, becoming brilliant is a highly effective pursuit. The decision indicates that you refuse to accept mediocrity and sameness as the law of operation. You always sense that there is something much greater beyond what is already great.

Society has benefited greatly from this type of mentality. Take, for example, news and events. We are able to see what is happening in all four corners of the world in a matter of minutes if not seconds. For example, social media, an entity which can surpass CNN in rendering breaking news via live video streaming. Years ago, we relied solely on the news to learn about what is happening in the world.

Back then, everything was after the fact. We only heard or saw news and events several hours or even days later. Now, however, we can see news and events, even as it happens. This is a brilliant advantage for all society who were often manipulated into believing only what was presented to them.

Now that we can see things as they happen, we have the knowledge and power to evaluate what happens ourselves and determine the truth of the matter. No one can manipulate our minds, at least not in the degree in which this occurred in the past.

The Cons of Brilliancy

Becoming brilliant has its down points. For one, the results of our brilliancy have placed the world on edge, especially in terms of nuclear capability. Just one push of the button can wipe out a whole continent.

On a lesson level. The advance of technology in the business world has been devastating to many once successful business enterprises. For example, the emergence of Amazon has drastically reduced the prevalence of brink-n-mortar stores, including bookstores, electronic stores and thousands of popular clothing stores. The trend toward online shopping may have done more harm than good, especially for the external shopping tradition.

The evidence shows that the results of brilliancy can be a blessing or a curse. However, without the mentality of the brilliant, the world would be a place of boredom and unprogressive-ness. Human nature needs excitement and newness to consider the business of living worthwhile. Sameness is a type of death, resulting in depression.

How to Become Brilliant

Belief

Becoming brilliant begins believing that you can be a part of something transformative, something that can change the lives of millions.

Passion

You must be excited about making a new idea real. Passion gives you in exhaustible energy to pursue the vision of change that you imagine. Going beyond what is considered great takes a tremendous amount of courage and energy. Passion is your secret weapon for infinite vitality.

Perseverance

If you are challenging the status quo in any endeavor, you must persevere due to the incredible opposition you will face for disrupting the comfortable. People love to hand on to what is already working well for society.

Flexibility

You must be willing to make adjustments in your pursuit of brilliancy. The opposition may reject your idea a thousand times or you may fail to get it right a thousand times. But each time you must rethink and adapt a new approach.  Anything short of this mentality will result in discouragement and give up your vision.

Focus

Distractions will come in wave after wave, via personal life, family life, and workplace as well as the community in general. However, you must decide that your vision is greater. The ability to sacrifice comfort and convenience and isolate yourself to the accomplishment of your idea is the foundation of brilliancy.

The world needs people who are in love with brilliancy. Without it, the world would crumble under the negative weight of non-progressiveness, resulting in social damnation.
