We take for granted that we know what we like when we taste it. We take for granted that we are this kind of person or that kind of person, or that we’re athletic or not athletic. So many of these things are based on a foundation in our minds. If we approach it in the right way, if we actually recognize that, we can take that foundation, belief, and poke at it and change it to our advantage.
It’s not that we can imagine anything and make it real. But our minds are constantly making these self-fulfilling hypotheses and limiting our own potential. Why not tap that potential and see what we can create?
Try the occasional experiment and see what happens. If you don’t try, you’ll never know.
