What do you think is the meaning of the word smart?

Well if you said it’s getting a 4.0 GPA, being on top of your class, or even being called smart. You almost got the answer but didn’t achieve it.

The real answer is that everyone is smart. Humans are born with the same brain the same heart, lungs, eyes, ears, etc. so it’s clear that we are all smart, but what we humans need to discover is what we are smart at. You might be smart at school, but are you really smart or is are you getting good grades because you study for hours. Wellbeing smart is a whole different thing actually. Just go around your friends and ask them what do you define the word “smart” and they give you a lot of different answers; that’s because they don’t really know the real answer they’ll just tell you what they think it is.

 

You might be smart at art, literature, history, IT, math, and video games. Albert Einstein once said “Everyone is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” This means you are a genius you are smart as long as you think you are. But once you feel your mind with all the comments people give you, you will then think-if not believe- that you are dumb. Nobody is stupid but what makes us stupid is thinking about what people tell us we are. Don’t let people define what you are, trust yourself. 

If you want to define smart as being at the top of your class. I don’t think it really is that because all the people that are “in your class” have minds- to be specific- the same mind that you have but they didn’t find their true selves in school. Being smart at school is a good thing for some people, and a bad thing for others because they didn’t find their passion in school. 

Question life is one of the things that led us, humans, to evolve. If you look back at all the different scientists that ever existed you’d realize that they all thought of stuff different. Like Newton, he could’ve been just like any other person that looks at a tree and sees an apple falling and keep up with their day, but he wanted a to be different he wanted to finish the equation. And he succeeded because he figured out something he loves to do –questioning things- focused on it.

 

In the end, smart is a word that has a lot of meaning based on how you define it. Be yourself and never be a copy of someone else. You were born for a reason, look for that reason and you will find what you are smart at.
