What is Intelligence? Well according to Einstein, “The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination.” I believe this to be the case. Intelligence isn’t something you are either born with or without. In saying that, people are born with a level of intelligence but it is up to them how they use it and whether they expand on it. In my opinion, everyone is born with a level of intelligence but that is just a starting point, a base line. Someone who is not overly smart but works hard in life and in their learning will beat someone who is born with much natural talent but just relies on that for their life and never makes an effort to improve.
In my opinion, true intelligence cannot be just granted to you when you are born. It is earned. It has to be worked on and worked on and if someone truly wants to be the best, no matter how which way they look at it, they are going to HAVE to work hard. If you really want to achieve something in life, if you truly want to be successful, if you truly want to be the BEST, then you have to work hard because nothing in this world is a given and that is a promise.
