The founder of Microsoft, Bill Gates, recently participated in an ‘ask me anything’ discussion on Reddit and revealed the advice that he would give to his younger self.
“I would explain that smartness is not single-dimensional and not quite as important as I thought it was back then. I would say you might explore the developing world before you get into your 40’s.”
In other words, intelligence isn’t one-dimensional and you cannot only rely on how smart you are to achieve success. There are other components that are key to being successful such as perseverance and having a positive mindset.
Coming from a billionaire who is responsible for changing the face of technological computer programmes, this advice is important and can be applied to any area of our lives!
