This guy thinks Leonardo Da Vinci was a loser. Agree?


Alright, we know what you’re thinking: how dare we call Leonardo da Vinci a loser!

Well, if you’ll hold on for just a second, you’ll not only understand the basis for such a seemingly outrageous claim, but may even feel better in your own endeavors after watching this video that provides a history lesson and unique perspective on the legendary Renaissance artist, engineer, scientist and more.

For instance, did you realize Leonardo struggled professionally in his 20’s and 30’s? Were you aware Leonardo didn’t ‘get his big break’ and gain major acclaim in his own life until he finished The Last Supper at the age of 46-years-old? Yeah, that’s right. Along with da Vinci, the video highlights other notables who saw success a bit later in their lives, such as Michael Faraday, Marcel Proust, Ulysses S. Grant and more.

So the next time you feel pressure to succeed quickly in your own career pursuits remember good ol’ Leo and that the sweetest successes come with years and years and years of hard work.
