Besides Gaara, one of my favorite characters in the Naturo Anime is Rock Lee. Why? Because on the surface, Rock Lee is not the strongest or the coolest person in comparison, says, with Naruto, Neji, or Sasuke. He cannot even use any form of ninjutsu and must solely rely on his taijutsu skills in battle. However, I think, Rock Lee’s inability to use ninjutsu is what makes him a standout character. Because of that, he becomes a man with the most determined and hard-working character. He was often made fun of because of his inability. Even the adults doubted the possibility of him becoming a ninja. But, with the help of his mentor, Might Guy, Rock Lee became one of the strongest ninjas! "A genius, huh? What does that mean? 'Genius'?," Rock Lee reasoned, "So I was not born with a whole lot of natural talent, not gifted like Neji... but I work hard and I never give up! That is my gift, that is my ninja way." Wow!
Many of us like Rock Lee: We don't have impressive natural-talents like others, we have flaws and handicaps, we often laugh at, not so good looking (or as beautiful), and people may doubt our ability. But don't let these be your excuses. We can be geniuses. In fact, as Rock Lee once said, "A dropout will beat a genius through hard work." Don't look down on yourself, improve yourself! Don't let your inability be your incapability - you're capable to work hard!
THINK BIG. START SMALL. GO DEEP.
