Mozart was cursed.
People look for hidden talents in ourselves like we’re all a hidden Mozart with abilities to recall symphonies from memory alone and such.
“If you could just find what you’re good at and born to do, everything else will fall into place!” – Random incorrect guru.
Here’s what you were born to do – lose. You’re not naturally good at anything. You’ve tried lots of stuff, and everything is hard for you.
It just seems like you’re not gifted enough, strong enough, smart enough.
Here’s why that’s a blessing…
When you’re born a savant with ‘natural God given talents’ and such, your pathway in life becomes almost predestined. Your DNA has dictated what you’re going to be doing: composing music.
What if Mozart didn’t like composing? What if he wanted to be a professional dare devil instead?
There’s no chance of the daredevil Mozart. Society would have pushed him SO HARD in ONE direction, he wouldn’t have the chance to consider what he wants to do.
You being a born loser is infinitely liberating.
You’re bad at everything, which nearly everyone else is too, so that puts you on a level playing field with most people. Then you can simply make a decision on what you want to do (instead of having your DNA tell you) with your time.
With time, you will get better at it. It’s just like the person that wants to be a YouTube star and realizes their camera presence is awful at first, you can look at how Ray William Johnson and Rhett and Link looked like at first – awful stuff. They kept at it, got better, and now look like they were ‘naturals’ all along.
Stop looking to be good at everything right off the start to find your path.
You want the balance of seeing both what your DNA could enable you to do (eg. don’t be a computer scientist if you’re the dumbest person in the room) as well as your choices (eg. don’t be a doctor because every generation in your family was a doctor).
When you hear someone say, “I’d love to do X, but I’m no good at it.” You can affirm to them of what a born loser they are…and also why that’s such a blessing.
You determine your path.
