There is nothing in his background to suggest that he might have been extraordinary. He was a bit less than an average in school, and at times was a problem pupil. An incident occurred when he was 15 years old and in high school. The teacher called Victor a ‘dunce.’ That’s not all – his teacher gave him the advise that it would be better if he dropped out of school and learned a trade.
Victor took that advice and acted upon it. He dropped out of school and for the next 17 years went from job to job and became a wanderer. Living life without a purpose and acting out the fact that he was a dunce.
At the age of 32, however, something amazing took place! It was a moment that would change his life forever. Somehow, somewhere, somebody gave him an IQ test. The results? They revealed that he was a genius with an IQ of 161! Most of us are average with an IQ between 90 and 110.
From that moment, Victor began acting like the genius the IQ test indicated he was! Today he is quiet a remarkable fellow. No longer is he a wanderer – he is a very successful businessman. He is the author of several books and has invented some new discoveries for which he holds the patents. His name? Victor Seribriarkoff!
His name is not exactly a household word, but those who have heard of Victor know that he was elected to be the chairperson of the International Mensa Society. To belong to Mensa a person must have an IQ of 140 or above.
Once Victor realized who he really was, his entire life changed.
The way we see ourselves often determines what we become. Our self image often develops from what other important people say about us. We listen to what they tell us, and then begin to act upon it. If we believe that we are a failure, then we act like a failure. If someone calls us a ‘dunce’ and we believe that , we act like a dunce.
Today, my friend, do you really know who you are?
Act like who you are.
