“Don’t believe everything you think!”

I saw this motto on the back of a car today, and I loved it!  In yesterday’s webinar, “Looking back…planning ahead,” we talked about getting trapped by what we “think we know.”  Our pre-conceived notions keep us from exploring options.  They keep us from entertaining new ideas.  They keep us down.

I used to look at history and wonder how people could have believed the things they used to believe:  the world is flat, the sun revolves around the earth, people who are sick are possessed by demons.  But, then I realize that today, there are things that we “think we know” that are being proven incorrect as we speak.  “Facts” aren’t even sure things, much less abstract ideas that we believe are true.  Pluto was a planet when I was in grammar school.  That was a fact. Now it isn’t a planet–that’s the new fact.

Things are always changing…if we let them.  Be careful not to get stuck in thoughts that hold you back.  As the old saying said, “whether you think you can or you think you can’t, you’re right!”
