King of Swords
I’ve always admired the mercurial qualities of the King of Swords, amazingly articulate, a brilliant communicator, perceptive and intelligent. He absorbs knowledge like a sponge. You wouldn’t wont to get into a debate with this guy, for he’ll outwit you in seconds as he’s incredibly well learned, forensic in his analysis, the typical archetype of the scholarly mind and academic.
He doesn’t follow others, he’s too independent for that, and assured of his own thinking and ideas. He’s no repeater either, those who recite other people’s ideas, while trying to pass them off as their own.
He knows knowledge is power, a mind well conversed is like the sword in his hand. He can reach for his intellect at any time he pleases and cuts to the chase in seconds. Today he brings a simple, but powerful message. Thoughts are the precursor of a fruitful action, for a well-shaped plan will always give birth to a successful outcome. If we don’t prepare for an exam, then we’re unlikely to pass or succeed. This doesn’t mean we’re stupid or unintelligent, it simply means we’ve undervalued the significance of preparation for success. Do your homework, know what you want out of life, workout your passions, what brings you happiness and excitement. Then do everything you can to feed that passion, to become well conversed and acquainted with your project, explore every avenue and detail to get the results you want.
The key to retention and a knowledgeable mind is repetition, so learn, study, and revise. Know your subject, model those who are doing what you love, read books, watch videos, learn your craft, then pluck up the courage to get out there and give it a go. See the King of Swords as your mentor, someone who is at the top of their field, the perfect example of the person you’d love to be, and the life you’d like to live.
