Or was it the other way around?
One capital mistake is to think that you know everything about a certain subject. That there is nowhere new to go, nothing else to do, etc.
Stagnation is death.
But also, it means you decided to put this infinite Universe in a box and call it a day.
It’s just you being lazy.
There are levels and levels of knowledge, of power, of talent. Things you can’t even imagine right now.
People who think in patterns that would seem so odd to you that you couldn’t replicate. People whose daily habits are obsessively focused on bettering themselves that you’d struggle to see any fun in it.
Imagine if you were put to run the hundred meter dash against Usain Bolt. Would you even stand a chance?
Of course not.
Oh, well, there’s an Usain Bolt equivalent in any area you can imagine.
Ok, ok, but what does it all mean?
It means this: you can learn. You can slowly develop your skills. It takes time and patience (I think I wrote this at least a couple thousand times on my blog)
But the most important thing to do in terms of mindset is to never think of something as being impossible.
Yes, you can’t do it right now, but it’s not impossible. It is only a temporary situation. From your limited understanding of life, it cannot be done.
But don’t say it’s impossible.
Were it truly impossible, there would be absolutely no reason to try at all.
And this is how you try to put the entire world inside a box.
This is how you stop growing.
This is how you get to settle for less than you deserve, less than you are capable of.
Limits are just illusions. They are there to test your commitment.
That is it.
Levels and levels and levels.
More than you can imagine right now.
Much, much more.
And all you have to do to reach those levels is to stop thinking like there’s a box. Don’t even think outside the box.
There is no box.
And you will soon find out that it’s not the light at the end of the tunnel that is an illusion, but the tunnel itself.
