One of the cool things about the human brain is don’t know much about it. Why is that cool? Because there’s so much potential.
Think about it, when you think about your quadriceps or your nose hairs or something, it’s just an easy to understand, bio-mechanical piece of equipment. Once you know what it does, and how it works, there’s not much mystery.
I don’t know about you, but I love discovering new things. That’s why taking a path of personal development is so fun. You’re ALWAYS learning new things about yourself and your capabilities.
You’re jamming along, thinking you’ve got something figured out, and then BAM! A piano falls out of the sky the shakes things up. You’ve got to stop and reevaluate things, and figure out what to do.
If you’re like most people, you take a step back, reassess the situation (which always implies a reassessment of yourself, since you’re always part of any situation you’re in) and move forward.
The best part about going through life and having different experiences is they add to your collective memory about who you are and what you’re capable of. Just imagine the stuff you can do today, that you would be completely clueless about five years ago.
You’ve come a long way baby!
Not only that, but imagine how much better you’ll be five years from now, or ten years from now!
Sure, it’s never easy, and there are always problems, but you wouldn’t have come into this world equipped with such a problem solving collection of neurons between your ears if you couldn’t handle it.
Think about that next time you’re going into an unfamiliar situation. Instead of thinking something normal like “I hope nothing bad happens…” Instead, think of something exceptional like “Wow… I bet I’m going to learn some cool stuff…”
Take a look at the world with that attitude and you’re sure to come out ahead!
