A rocket scientist explains how to stand out from the crowd and cultivate genius in his new book.
It is easy in life to walk to the beat of another person’s drum and to conform to the world around you. And yet, the people who change the world are not often agreeable or conventional thinkers.
There is something original and potentially genius within everyone, and learning to cultivate and grow that originality into something new is how great minds stand apart and make the world a different place.
In his new book Awaken Your Genius: Escape Conformity, Ignite Creativity, And Become Extraordinary, rocket scientist, law professor, and bestselling author of Think Like a Rocket Scientist Ozan Varol explains how readers can benefit from thinking like a contrarian.
“You’ll learn how to discard what no longer serves you and discover your first principles—the qualities that make up your genius. You’ll be equipped to escape your intellectual prisons and generate original insights from your own depths. You’ll discover how to look where others don’t look and see what others don’t see. You’ll give birth to your genius, the universe-denter you were meant to be,” says the publisher.
A Short Excerpt from the Book
“The price we pay for living in this world is betraying who we are—and disconnecting from the genius within. Inside you is a vast reservoir of untapped wisdom. You are made up of every experience you’ve had, every story you’ve heard, every person you’ve been, every book you’ve read, every mistake you’ve made, and every piece of your beautifully messy human existence. Everything that makes you you—a huge treasure waiting to be explored,” says Varol.
Awaken Your Genius: Escape Conformity, Ignite Creativity, And Become Extraordinary will be published on April 11, 2023, by PublicAffairs.
