If we all worked on the assumption that what is accepted as true is really true, there would be little hope of advance.

Have you ever wondered what makes someone like say, Orville or Wilbur Wright capable of reaching heights never before imagined by others? Me neither but it is a good question. No?
By the way, Orville and Wilbur were the first two ordinary people to fly a manned machine through the air.
You see, when we do consider the different levels of success that others reach we begin to think that these people must have some secret that we simply have not been made aware of. It really doesn’t matter what level of success we look at, be it famous, wealthy, healthy and in a relationship with the most beautiful looking people one could imagine, we begin to think that these people are surely extraordinary for sure!
There’s a children’s book I once saw called, Everyone Poops. I guess it designed to potty-train kids or something but its title is profound for us ordinary people looking to become, well in our own eyes, extraordinary!
Once we realize that the people we admire or dare I say envy, could well be spoken of in the pages of Everyone Poops, then we begin to see humanity in perspective. We begin to see that they were once as ordinary as we are. I’m sure that even though successful they too still poop.
So what’s the moral of the story? Simple, if you poop then you too can become extraordinary!
Shut the front door!
