Mark Twain’s Life-Changing Lessons

Mark Twain, an American outstanding writer, satirist and public figure, brought out 5 life-changing lessons everyone should know.

It's time to get acquainted with them!

All you need in this life is ignorance and confidence, and then success is sure”

Ignorance is generally considered to be a disadvantage, but Mark Twain’s perspective is different. A certain level of ignorance allows us to believe that nothing is impossible. According to the laws of physics and aerodynamics a bumblebee is not able to fly, but it doesn’t know that so... it flies.

Confidence together with this kind of beneficial ignorance can make your dreams come true. As the American author Napoleon Hill said: “Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve.”

The man who does not read has no advantage over the man who cannot read”

We have a unique opportunity to absorb the knowledge that other people have accumulated for decades, in a matter of hours. Reading helps you to be more aware of what you do, to see things from different perspectives, and express yourself better. So, take a book and enjoy!

“It's not the size of the dog in the fight, it's the size of the fight in the dog”
We have to be bigger than our problems. To win, we have to be strong, we have to be perseverant, and never think that we cannot achieve what we set ourselves.

“Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear, not absence of fear”

We can get scared of some things, there is nothing to be ashamed of. What matters is to deal with our fears and never run away from them! Control fear, and fear will not control you.

“Thousands of geniuses live and die undiscovered--either by themselves or by others”

This idea might be difficult to accept, but everyone is born a genius, the problem is that not all of us reveal our talents. We may doubt ourselves, but there is definitely something we can do great. All you have to do is to find out what it is. Dare to discover the genius in yourself!
