How To Be A Genuis – Episode 6 – How To Write Like Shakespeare

When you think of a genius, who first comes to mind? An artist? Scientist? Sports player?
Regardless of the subject area, geniuses exhibit similar traits that can all lead to finding fulfilment and becoming successful.
In a brand new special eight-part series, Pete explores the common factors linking geniuses and explains how you too can become a genius.
In Part 6, we dive into the mindset of arguably the most famous English writer of all time – William Shakespeare. Studied throughout schools across the globe, Shakespeare has become a household name despite humble origins and authored almost 40 plays and countless other writings. However, it was not the sheer volumes of his work that made his works timeless – rather it was the first time that the complex nature of the human psyche was explored and discussed in society. How did Shakespeare do it?
Join us as we uncover:
  1. The power of observation in becoming a genius;
  2. What it really means to be human;
  3. Why bringing people together is a recipe for success.

    Amazing listening, I have never felt such a pull to read Shakespeare’s work, it has a strange feeling like his work was almost psychological and he really was inside peoples emotions. He could almost have travelled back in time to be who he was , as he seemed to have such a deeper insight than others at the time .

  2. Elaine Dews

    Shakespeare was truly a great story teller and an excellent wordsmith. It’s believed he was inspired by the Greek writer Ovid and may have based his Romeo & Juliet on Pyramus & Thisbe. I love the fact that our heroes had their own heroes too.
    My biggest takeaway is Shakespeares ability to observe the world around him. We get so wrapped up in our busy lives we can forget to do this.

    Totally inspiring in a subtle but very effective way Pete. Just like William Shakespeare. Thank you.
