There is No Such Thing as Genius

I don't know about you, but the whole concept of a "genius" always kind of hung over me in school.  I was a pretty studious kid, so I always wanted to do the best that I could, and it kind of irritated me that there was the possibility that no matter how hard I tried, I would never be as good as this random person called a "genius" who, in my imagination based on the incomplete teachings of my peers, could just swoop in and instantly understand EVERYTHING without having ever worked on it.

Yeah, it only occurred to me later that NOBODY ELSE understood the concept of "genius" either so there was no point in even thinking about it. Once I thought about it, I realized that this whole "genius" rigamarole has a precedent throughout history.  It used to be that you couldn't be a leader of a government unless you were of "noble" birth.  People believed this with such feverence, that they literally made themselves into the stupid slaves of the aristocracy. If it wasn't "noble" birth it was "divine" birth where people thought they had some shared heritage with the gods (and thus people should listen to them). It's all that same line of crap about how some people think they are "special" and that everybody else should therefore do everything else for them right up to and including the wiping of their holy asses.
its all a bunch of crap, but yep people still believe in this term 'genius', 'noble birth' and 'divine birth'.  hey, people are equals, it is mentioned in the Quran, the Hadith from the Prophet of Allah; people are equals in front of the Lord except for those who have more taqwa, you guys get what i mean right?hahaha.sorry but sometimes i just felt that i am not writing im just meraban here and there.
if we get into the history, genius people like Fumiaki Taguchi, Song Guofu, and Zhang Guanglei,Albert Einstein (of course), Newton, David Dunning and many more (as this is far as i know). if we were saying that these 'genius' people are genius since they were born is totally wrong. i dont believe that there are humans which born with genius, but i believe humans are born with wills. eventhough, before his achievement Einstein is considered as crazy because he kept doing experiments and experiment and weird experiments which in that time, people thoughts are not as clear as this era. his will mad him kept going until he successfully found and developed the theory of relativity. his will turn his eager into passion. if you guys met with this s0-called genius and ask him a question like,as that person is genius in math, ask him what do you think about maths and i am damn sure he will answers with "maths is my life", dont get it? look into all the history of genius people on how much of their age was spent into something that they have passion on? Einstein? Newton? Shakespeare? Da Vinci? half of their age and more.
want to be a genius? spent 30 years on nitpicking and then you will be a genius in nitpicking,hahahha, thats a joke.heee. Albert Einstein used to say, 'it is a madness to do a same thing but expecting a different result', it does not mean when you failed in doing something such as the exam, it does not mean you have to stop trying. when Einstein said that, he is talking about on HOW YOU DO IT. but yet, people forgot to pray to Allah.
