- Beating the High School Rap




Had enough? Go straight to tips4

Under pressure, our creativity begins to diminish, and one day we find that no-one thinks we're 'amazing for our age' anymore. Not surprising. Even the great Einstein, who had difficulty finishing high school, felt that '…the spirit of learning and creative thought were lost in strict rote learning.'

Book learning is okay, if it stirs the creative juices within us, but what if it doesn't? What if the things we want to learn are not in those schoolbooks? Well, we get frustrated because we're being forced to go against our nature. Our imaginations are being stifled, and we're losing ourselves!

We begin to envy those classmates who are doing well. We think maybe something is wrong with us. Every day, dissatisfaction and envy grow within us, until we begin to dislike our lives, maybe even ourselves.
