Overcoming Limitations

Born in 1452, there was a boy who was so socially awkward and unable to concentrate that his single father, had to educate him alone at home. He never had friends because he couldn’t relate or communicate well with other people, especially children. He was so wrapped up in his own mind that he would instantly forget what he just learned. He would just wander off mentally.

It was a challenge to even carry on a conversation with this boy no matter who you were. When he was 15 he joined an artist’s group studio. Within four years he was working as an independent artist at his own private studio. When on his own, he began to develop all aspects of his mind and personality. He blossomed in effect. He started mentoring others in art which increased his skills significantly in both his art and his abilities to communicate.

Since he had to explain the details to others he found himself becoming much more eloquent and able to get along with people better than ever before.

His desire for knowledge was insatiable. He studied philosophy, natural history, anatomy, biology, botany, medicine, optics, acoustics, science, mathematics and hydraulics in detail.

He became a renowned architect, a musician, an engineer, a scientist and an inventor. He sketched the very first parachute, the first helicopter, first airplane, first tank, the very first repeating rifle, a swinging bridge, a paddle boat and the first motor car.

When Leonardo da Vinci painted the Mona Lisa, it took him six years to complete. When he finished the painting the King of France bought it, but Leonardo was so attached to the painting he didn’t want to part with it. So he convinced the King of France to let him keep it in his studio so he could observe it regularly and ongoingly until he passed away in 1515.
