How sharp is your memory?

Without using a search engine, name the last five Nobel Peace Prize Laureates. Can you remember the specifics of why President Barack Obama won? The name of the Tunisian group who were awarded the prize?

When I ask people this question, a pattern emerges. Everyone struggles to remember the last five with any degree of accuracy, with one exception.

Almost everyone remembers Malala Yousafzai, winner in 2014.
How could that be? A 17 year old girl be more memorable than a United States president?

It is, in fact, our human weakness, our vulnerability, that make us more memorable.

We all know the world gathers around the underdog.

Today’s action – notice when and where you’re telling yourself you’re not “enough” to create change? You’re too young, too old, too uneducated, too unimportant. Then post a picture of Malala Yousafzai on your wall and spend 5 minutes writing about whether what you are telling yourself is actually true.
