Einstein said, “Everyone is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” Do you know what determines whether your child is intrinsically motivated to learn and set himself on a path towards mastery and genius? And if not for this, he will sleepwalk his entire school life. It is CONFIDENCE! Every interaction with the world around can shape your child’s confidence. And this confidence is not something a child is born with. Nor can it be taught or learnt. BUT... it can be nurtured! Before we go into that, here's a true story about Josh who went on a roller coaster ride before he found his inner genius. Josh was a boy of 5 when he was considered a protege in chess. He was the youngest Grandmaster in Chess and he grew from strength-to-strength winning tournaments in the 1980s. He looked destined to follow in the footsteps of legendary players like Bobby Fischer and Garry Kasparov. But Josh's life was about to change... If you grew up in the '70s and '80s during the height of the Cold War, as Josh did, you'd be aware of the intense Chess rivalry between the United States and the Soviet Union. The Soviets were producing Chess Grandmasters in quick succession... Anatoly Karpov, Garry Kasparov, and others. While the US had not managed to produce another hero after Bobby Fischer! When the American media saw a promising young chess genius, they went overboard! Stories were written...Josh became the darling of the American media. He was getting the kind of attention he was not used to. If all this was not enough, they made a movie about him, "Finding the next Bobby Fischer"...and this when he was still a boy of 15! Josh enjoyed being in the public eye... he became a national celebrity and a hero. Big brands wanted to be endorsed by him. Pretty girls wanted his attention. And, fans wanted his autograph. Unfortunately, the mounting pressure took a toll on him. This fame was something that life had barely prepared him for. From being a kid who enjoyed strategizing new moves and thinking about how to win against his opponents, his mind was now consumed with handling the media and the expectations that come with it... how to smile and pose for the camera. Josh started losing competitions...and slowly the rankings. As a result, his confidence took a huge beating...and it seemed irreversible. The game of chess, which once used to be a joy for him, now became a nightmare. When he realized he could no longer perform and succeed like he used to, he went through a severe phase of depression as a teenager. Chess was his life and he did not know of a world outside of it. He now seemed to be on track to become another Macaulay Culkin...the kid from the movie 'Home Alone' who could not handle the fame and went astray into the world of alcohol and drugs. BUT... Josh had a different twist to his story! When Josh was eighteen, in the middle of all that raging storm and sea of depression he was going through, he came across a book titled 'Tao Te Ting'. This would lead him to a journey of self-discovery...he took to the study of Buddhism and Taoism. One day he stumbled upon a Tai Chi Chuan studio in Manhattan and was awestruck by the peaceful and graceful movements of the men and women practicing Tai chi. He soon enrolled himself into the classes and would spend hours every day practicing Tai Chi. A few months into this...he started observing the patterns of learning the art of tai chi and realized it was not too different to principles of learning chess. He used the insights he gained as a chess player into learning and excelling in Taichi. Later, he competed in several Taichi competitions and went on to become a world champion. He was later able to use the principles learnt in Tai chi to improve his game of chess. Josh is now a famous author and a speaker. Josh Waitzkin cracked the inner game of learning...He wrote a book called the 'Art of Learning', where he says, "I am neither an expert in chess nor an expert in taichi...but I am

Checkmate. Today marks the anniversary of the first time a computer beat the World Chess Champion in a game using regular time controls. IBM's Deep Blue got the best of Garry Kasparov in game one of six. Kasparov eventually won the match 4-2, only to be beaten the next year by the upgraded IBM computer.
