STOP making excuses for yourself….
STOP believing “If I had been luckier or just had the money to pursue my ideas then I would be…”
The most intelligent and successful people in history all have something in common: they give their minds a regular opportunity to daydream. Daydreaming requires introducing a little “boredom” into one’s day. It requires a break from the typical routine followed by most “successful” individuals whose days are filled with scheduled tasks measured by productivity.
The 17th-century philosopher Rene Descartes taught: “Cogito ergo sum,” Latin for “I think, therefore I am.” This reminds us that thought must precede action. To give ourselves the opportunity to think and innovate, we must let our minds wander.
Albert Einstein’s genius is accurately revealed in his famous quote:
“If we want to change the world, we have to change our thinking…no problem can be solved from the same consciousness that created it …we must learn to see the world anew.”
In order to advance your personal situation, achieve your goals, lead your team, and make your world a better place, your mind needs to be free to explore and create – when you are daydreaming, you are thinking!
