Can we transform ordinary people into extraordinary people to achieve extraordinary things ?
There is no person in the world who is just ordinary in my opinion. Everyone has some sort of talent and it's true that there are too much persons staying in their ordinary environment. I do believe that you can transform these people into people who do extraordinary things. I think that if you would really like to make a change in a person's mind, the key word should be listening. There's no one extraordinary in everything and as a leader you have to find out in which perticular thing your person is special. It's a search to someone's talent and this search should be your task if you want to improve these persons. It's searching with them to the flame that is burning deep inside them and if you're able to find that, you will be able to encourage him/her to develop it. Off course as said before by some others in this conversation, self-awareness is the most important thing but if you're a good listener and interpreter you can find out what is driving people, you can find out what their passion is and most of the time I think is their talent to be found close to their passion. If you discover this, you will be close to pushing these persons over the edge to do extrordinary things. I think that it's the task of the leader to help his people to find their self-awareness. Show these people what they are capaple of, let them believe that they can make a difference when they really can and they will probably be ready to do extraordinary things I guess.

What is the best way to choose a major?
As some people have said before, choosing the right major isn't about looking for the big money but about the things you really love in your life. You have to dig inside yourself and you have to find out what drives you in your life and you have to find out what you are passionate about. I'm at the moment in my second year applied economics at the university of Antwerp and when I speak to some of my friends I am surprised by the lack of passion they have about their studies. They find some of the stuff we see interesting but they just doesn't know what they are dealing about. They forget about the real purpose of a major which is giving you college in the thing where you think that you can make a difference in. Choosing a major is maybe just too early for some persons. We maybe don't have the knowledge of life yet which give us the ability of connecting the things we are interested in. I think that when you really want to find the right major you will have to take time for yourself. You have to take time to draw a little map where you write down which lessons you liked at high school, the hobby's you have, the things you're interested in and most of all the things where you can get really upset about. These last ones gives a fair view about what is driving you. When you look at this map, you must try to connect every single thing you've written down and then it will be about finding the connection between all these things. Finding the right major is about finding the connection between ability and passion. It's a balance and most of us have troubles to find these balance, but still, the only one to find this balance will be the person who has to do the major and eventually, you will find your interest. Maybe you makes the wrong the wrong decision but then you will have a major of life, with classes that you will found in the world around you.
