Success Genius – It’s Not About IQ

When I noticed that Samir Wagle, President and CEO of Protein Bar was speaking at Chicago Booth, I was all in (despite the 7:15 a. m. start time).

Samir is committed, knowledgeable, and very intelligent. While he shared many things, one really stuck in my mind. It was this: Genius is not how smart you are in the conventional sense of the word. One is a “genius” when even the seemingly negative things in life are clearly and quickly seen as opportunities for gain – and that you have the wherewithal to capitalize on these lessons.

So, are you a “genius” today?
