The tallest mountain on Mars is called Olympus Mons. It is 16 miles (24 kilometers) high which makes it about three times higher than Mt. Everest.
What makes it so tall?
Lower gravity as compared to earth allows volcanic formations on mars to grow higher.
Why I am even telling you all this?
The environment has always played a major role in shaping things and lives.
A life form that thrives in the depths of the ocean has poor sight or even no sight. They simply don’t need it.
So environment matters. Home, workplace, or your neighborhood shape you in ways you never imagined.
So sometimes when you put all the blame on your surroundings and the people you hang out with, guess what, maybe you are right!
Don’t be so harsh on yourself.
The challenge is there is too much developmental burden put on the shoulders of the individual.
Thanks to self-help books and Warikoo’s of the world.
Why there is so much emphasis on self-development? There is no good answer for this but perhaps it makes more business sense.
Why there is no focus on managing the environment? because it is very tough.
By no means I am undermining self-development.
But it helps if we also have a look at the environmental factors that might be disabling us.
There is a reason we don’t have a Sachin Tendulkar in Kenya or a Michael Schumacher in India.
What’s your take?
