Effortless Seems Authentic

There is an assumption among many that if someone is an achiever at a young age, the unique talent must be an innate ability, and not slogging. The extraordinary milestones that are met before the usual timeframes feel disruptive, and unsettles the status quo.

The truth is many young achievers have spent years working hard, and overcoming substantial challenges to reach the celebrated milestones.

The Young Achiever

  • The ‘young achiever’ success story is pleasantly unexpected and is often circulated more as it makes people feel happier. Young achievers are glorified, idolized, and spark awe among the general population.
  • From Magnus Carlson, the young Norwegian chess player, to Lionel Messi, who became a pro at his game at age 17, talent at a young age appears impressive and leaves a positive impact.

The Dark Side Of Young Success

Young success invites scrutiny, criticism and risk of falling from grace faster than others. The media is often ruthless towards them and any scandal is highlighted promptly.

This may be a mixture of jealousy and other negative emotions that success at a young age always brings along. Things can improve when each person creates their own definition of success, as comparing one's life with others is the root cause of jealousy.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
