A few months ago I visited a Leonardo Da Vinci exhibit in one of the local museums in town. In all honesty, I was unaware of just how accomplished he was. I was familiar with some of his works, such as The Last Supper and other famous paintings, but when it came to his inventions, I was blown away by his intelligence. I walked through rooms showcasing his talents, from the very first blueprints of his ideas to replicas of how they would have looked if they were produced. I was incredibly fascinated with how his brain was thinking light years ahead of the time period he was in. I learned how he was shunned and denied a proper education because he was born out of wedlock, but he still found a way to teach himself how to read and write regardless of the adversity he faced. What was even more incredible about him was his attitude towards life. Not only was he incredibly creative, but he was fearless. No matter how many times he failed, no matter how many times people told him it wouldn't work, or he wasn't capable, he proved them all wrong. He was a leader, not a follower. He didn't wait to be taught, he didn't wait for someone to help him, he just went after his dreams and passions.
Da Vinci’s story shows us that in life there are those that lead and those that follow. Those that innovate, and those that copy others' ideas. Those that further themselves regardless of their situation, and those that rely on others. It is a reminder to us all that anything is possible. I know we often hear that saying and think it’s so cliche and unrealistic, but it is actually so true. Our story is in our own hands. It’s not about the cards we’re dealt, but how you play the hand. Choose to pave your own path. No matter what you have or don't have. No matter if you’re formally educated or not. No matter if others believe you can do it or not. Go for it. You only get one chance to leave your mark on this earth, so make it great and be incredible!
