Have faith in your ability to figure things out.
The answers to all the questions we seek are so often already inside ourselves.
We don’t need to immediately google to look at what other peoples ideas, opinions or thoughts are. What we think matters.
While I’m not a proponent of making up stories about how the world works and running with them as if they are the truth or reality, I most certainly believe that our ability to figure things out comes from being asked — or asking — thought-provoking quality questions.
We don’t need to know the answers; knowing quality questions to ask, well that’s where we can powerfully begin, anytime we feel stuck, overwhelmed, anxious — when we have a problem, puzzle or riddle we are trying to solve.
We must be curious. Be open. Remember what it was like to be a child — to live in a place of wonder when all things were possible, and we dreamed up impossible limitless things. The most interesting solutions will be somewhere where the world of logic meets magic, madness, curiosity, impossibility, wonder, maths, science and physics.
Let’s have a growth mindset as much as possible; let’s remember that failures are just opportunities for learning moments after all — and we only suffer through them if we choose to (which I’m guilty of more than usual through COVID-19, by the way). We must have faith in our ability to figure things out, as everything is figureoutable, after all.
