1. Many times you’ll hear people say that they aren’t a genius. You disagree with this and say that everyone is a genius. Can you discuss this further?

3. Along the same lines as the previous question is that of how to deal with situations when people may not take you seriously because you aren’t licensed or degreed. What are your thoughts on this and how can someone effective handle this type of a situation?

4. You speak about someone being a “genius by association.’ Can you discuss this further?

5. What are some of the blind spots that someone can be aware of and then overcome when it comes to realizing your genius?

6. What role does motivation and inspiration play in regards to someone uncovering their hidden genius?

7. How does someone (especially a young child) realize their genius ability if they have been diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD)?

8. What are your thoughts on those who are labeled as geniuses in school versus those who aren’t? How can a parent and child handle situations where they may not be looked upon as a genius in school but do excel in areas outside of school?

Quotes by Albert Einstein

Fear of Failure (taken to the limit) (Wiki link):    Atychiphobia is the abnormal, unwarranted, and persistent fear of failure.[2] As with many phobias, atychiphobia often leads to a constricted lifestyle[3], and is particularly devastating for its effects on a person’s willingness to attempt certain activities.

A person afflicted with atychiphobia considers the possibility of failure so intense that they choose not to take the risk. Oftentimes this person will subconsciously undermine their own efforts so that they no longer have to continue to try.[4] Because effort is proportionate to the achievement of personal goals and fulfillment, this unwillingness to try that arises from the perceived inequality between the possibilities of success and failure holds the atychiphobic back from a life of meaning and the realization of potential.[5]

By definition, the anxiety of any particular phobia is understood to be disproportionate to reality, and the victim is typically aware that the fear is irrational, making the problem a

largely subconscious one. For this reason there are no simple treatments for atychiphobia, however there are several options available.
