Top 4 Startling Reasons Why Talented Individuals Fail

Published

on

Merriam-Webster defines talent as a unique ability that enables some individuals to perform exceptionally well in particular activities. According to common knowledge, it is much easier for a talented individual to succeed because talent provides an added advantage. Besides this, we often believe that everybody who succeeds in any area is talented.

However, today, people with average abilities succeed while talented people fail because of the following reasons.

  1. Some Talented People Don’t work hard enough

Some talented individuals fail because they don’t work hard enough. They believe that their success is guaranteed just because they are talented. These folks fail to realize that for them to succeed, they also have to invest their time and energy in perfecting their skill. Just like the average individuals, they also have to work extremely hard for them to succeed.

If you are talented, remember that the moment you stop growing your talent, a person with an average skill set is working day and night to make his/her skills extraordinary, and eventually, this individual might beat/outdo you.

  1. Impatience

Some talented people always believe that success must come quickly and easily to them just because they have extraordinary abilities. Therefore, if their success takes longer to arrive, these folks easily become frustrated and give up.

  1. Overconfidence

Many talented individuals fail because of overconfidence. Overconfidence makes them believe that they are unbeatable, and also makes them assume that success will easily continue. They, therefore, become comfortable, and their comfort leads to failure. Besides this, their ‘unbeatable’ mindset makes them approach challenges with less concentration and intensity hence making it possible for them to fail.

  1. Arrogance

Arrogant, talented individuals fail because they believe they are always right. This belief makes them vulnerable to making several mistakes hence leading to failure. Furthermore, they sometimes fail because their arrogance often results in other people not helping them when they are in need.

Concluding Remarks

It is true that talented people have a high chance of succeeding than average folks. However, they might fail if they don’t work hard enough. Moreover, they also fail when they become impatient, overconfident and arrogant.

    One more reason- they are so sure they have all the answers, they sometimes fail to question their assumptions- and are then led astray.

Discussing Osho’s Concept: ‘Astrology: The Science of Cosmic Oneness.’

Published

on

Astrology: The Science of Cosmic Oneness is a chapter in Osho’s book, The Hidden Mystery. I fell in love with this chapter because here, Osho provides deep insights into astrology. I love astrology because it reminds me of the many mysterious things about the universe.

Anyway, in the chapter, Osho introduces astrology by claiming that its fundamental laws originated from India since astrological calculations require mathematics which uses digits that were invented in India. He then proceeds to provide the following enlightening ideas.

 

  • Human Beings Are Connected to The Stars

The Sumerians realized that human beings are related to the stars because the stars are responsible for disasters that strike the world. Chijevsky, a Soviet Scientist, gained interest in this idea, and after studying it he realized that nuclear blasts that occur on the sun (the biggest star) cause wars on our planet.

It’s hard to either accept or reject this idea because it’s also hard to either prove or disapprove it. However, the idea might be true because everything in the universe is connected, and maybe this connectedness is what causes the changes in the solar system to affect our planet.

 

  • A Human Being Becomes Sick When He Fails to Be In Tune With The Musical Harmony in The Solar System

There was a certain musical harmony in the solar system when you were born. This harmony affects your health all your life, and living out of tune with it results in sickness.

I think this musical harmony is what we refer to as the Zodiac sign, and Osho believes that to be healthy, we must live in alignment with it.

 

  • The Moon Affects Us.

If the moon greatly influences the water in the ocean, and the proportion of salt in the water in our bodies is similar to that of the salt in the ocean, how then can we firmly conclude that the moon does not affect us?

The moon affects human beings, and many studies have shown that various phases of the moon affect insanity levels. Many ancient societies also believed that the phases of the moon affected people’s behavior. The movies also try to indirectly tell you that the moon affects us. Have you watched in movies how the full moon makes some people turn into werewolves? Just Open Your Eyes, and You Shall See.

 

  • All Animals (Including Humans) Have an Intuitive Source.

Many studies have confirmed that animals can sense climatic changes and impending disasters. Birds usually know when it’s about to snow, and some domestic animals know when it’s about to rain. In Japan, there is a bird which flies away 24 hours before an earthquake. We also have this intuitive source that most of us can’t access because we rely so much on our intellect.

I firmly agree with Osho because studying history made me realize that all animals including humans are intuitive but we humans, lost our intuitive abilities because the modern society became so obsessed with intellectual advancement. We focus on analyzing, researching and critical thinking instead of depending on our gut feeling to understand the universe.

 

  • The Future is not Uncertain

According to Osho, the future exists in the present, and so, we can know our future if we open the window of the present moment. Osho believes that ignorance and lack of knowledge about this idea are what makes us believe that the future is uncertain.

I don’t know what opening the window of the present moment means, and therefore, I ask for your assistance in determining what Osho meant.

 “Astrology declares that if by divine grace we can come to know the whole, then the future as such will not exist. But because we do not know the whole – we know only a small fragment – what we don’t know becomes the future.” – Osho

Hope you enjoyed today’s article. Anyway, before I write ‘thanks for reading’ I would love to provide you with a nugget of wisdom. Recently, I realized that only the open-minded people can become wiser. Therefore, never dismiss any piece of information just because it appears delusional.

Remember, the universe is miraculous, and there are many delusional things about it. And for you to understand the universe you must welcome any piece of information and use your gut feeling to assess its validity. Your gut always knows the truth, it is your connection with the universal wisdom.

Thanks for reading. love ya
