These are some of the dyslexic people in history:

Albert Einstein, Nikola Tesla, Michael Faraday, Stephen Hawking, Steve Jobs,
Robin Williams, Henry Ford, Da Vinci, Newton, Walt Disney, Thomas Edison,
Picasso, John Lennon, Winston Churchill, Alexander Bell, Thomas Jefferson,
John F Kennedy, Woodrow Wilson, George Washington, the Wright Brothers,
Mohammed Ali and many more.

Now for the famous dyslexic people who are alive:

Richard Branson, Cher, Whoopi Goldberg, Tom Cruise, Andy Warhol,
Anthony Hopkins, Ozzie Osborne, Steven Spielberg, Sylvester Stallone
and many more.

What do they all have in common?
They struggled at school. Yes, they did not get A’s or 10 out of 10 and yet
they became a genius in their field.
So, why?

The reason why dyslexia is a gift is that we use the right side of our brains,
Sally Shaywitz of Yale University put dyslexic and non-dyslexic people in a
study using an fMRI tunnel and proved this.

About 10% of the world’s population suffers from the gift of dyslexia and has
this right brain gift that is fit for creativity.
In a study, the Cass Base Business school in the UK showed that dyslexic
people are five times more likely to be innovators compared to non-dyslexic
people and this is why: We can see things that others cannot.

So, the key is to know you have a gift and not worry about not doing so well at
school, but rather concentrate on doing things you excel at and love.
Non-dyslexic people that make up about 90% of society suffer from the gift of
using the left brain, which is great for sequential things.

So, great for the educational system and getting A’s and 10 out of 10.
This is a massive gift in its own right.

Yin and Yang.
The ancient Chinese knew that for every positive, there must be a negative.
In science, for every negative, there must be a positive.

So, if you believe in Yin and Yang, know that because you are struggling at school
means that you have a huge gift on the other side.
It turns out that, as discussed before, it is because we, as dyslexic people, use the
right side of the brain.
