Upbringing discourages imagination and ingenuity
Our upbringing, for the most part, suppresses and discourages ingenuity and imagination (right brain thinking), and it follows that because we (most of us) only think with half our brains most of the time, results are less than ideal (satisfactory at best).
If you think your results are excellent, you have no idea how extraordinary, fantastic, magnificent, and brilliant they could be… if developed to their full capacity.
School teaches us that there is only one right answer when in fact there are millions of shades of grey depending on context, situation, circumstances and other factors. The result is most people have a very strong aversion and even fear of being wrong as it is seen as ‘failure’. However, as we all know, the best way to find out what works and what not… is to fail… until we succeed. Its like learning to walk. You will never learn to walk unless you fall first.
We are also led to believe that authority figures are always right and have all the answers. They don’t…. most facts have been debunked… the world is not flat, the sun does not rotate around the earth, we can fly….
Give your imagination wings
A caged bird has limited range, whereas a free bird can go almost anywhere its wings can take it. Imagination is the wing of ingenuity and creativity. Set it free!
Failure is the air beneath your wings. The more you fail, the higher, faster, further you can fly.
Imagination, like wings, require practice to be strong, resilient and hyper-responsive to cater to the demands of the situation, needs, and prevailing winds. Ingenuity can be likened to prey… you catch it out of thin air when conditions are just right. The more you practice, the better, quicker (luckier) you become.
