Aim for the stars!
Richard Branson is one of England’s most successful businessmen. He has started more than 360 businesses, built up a personal fortune of more than £3 billion, and is the 20th richest person in Britain today. Not bad for a man who still couldn’t read at the age of eight, and for whom school wasn’t just a challenge — it was a nightmare.
Richard Branson has dyslexia — a condition which makes it very difficult to learn to read, write and spell correctly. Doctors say that about 10% of the population has dyslexia. However, when Richard was young, no one from his school or family environment realised the sort of problems he was trying to deal with when it came to reading and writing properly. Back then, people didn’t know that dyslexia was a learning disorder. Everyone just thought people with dyslexia were not very clever.
Richard was embarrassed by the problems he had with his schoolwork, and had a very difficult time in school. But he was determined not to let his learning disability prevent him from succeeding in life. So, he concentrated on his other qualities such as his creativity, as well as his ability to inspire people and make them enthusiastic about trying their best. And by doing so, he found great success.
Richard says that dyslexia is a challenge, but it is also a gift. People who have dyslexia have to deal with many challenges and often experience and see the world in a different way. He adds that the ability to see things differently is a great advantage in life.
‘My interest in life comes from setting myself huge, apparently impossible challenges and trying to achieve them’, he says. Richard shows that we should all aim for the stars!
