I’m always amused by those who want to be the smartest person in the room.
Though what they don’t understand is that while it may be good for their ego, it isn’t good for them.
Being the smartest in the room means you won’t have anything to aspire to.
You won’t have anyone that you can learn from.
You won’t have anyone encouraging you to do or be better.
If you aren’t the smartest in the room, don’t for a second think you are therefore the dumbest.
What you are is someone who has the potential to grow the most.
And that is what we should be aiming for.
