“Your mind is not your shoe size.” - Jim Kwik
Have you ever taken an “IQ Test”?
Chances are you have, if not something very similar. A test that claimed to tell us our capacity in life. Where the resulting score is the equivalent of looking into a crystal ball on how successful we’ll be.
As ridiculous as that sounds, it’s a nightmare that comes to life for many. A self-fulfilling prophecy that can cut potential at the knees.
The truth of it all however, is that we know so very little about how the mind *actually* works. It’s still such a mystery to us. Yet, we can find ourselves casting a blanket over that, passing judgement that can literally change the course of our lives.
In regards to one of life’s greatest mysteries, there’s one thing we can bank on… that our mind is not our shoe size.
