You Only See What your Eyes Want to See

“It’s not what you don’t know that kills you, it’s what you know for sure that ain’t true.” ~ Mark Twain

You probably been in situations where you got stuck and ran out of ideas; you’ve been trying to solve an issue or a problem and you think too hard and you can’t seem to go anywhere with that… But after a while you just look at it Differently and you find the solution that has been sitting there all along!

One thing I’ve learned in my studies, is that Creativity is not something we are born with, but something we acquire, and it starts by noticing new ways and possibilities in every situation and in almost every scenario. Kids do that All the time, while grown-ups kinda “lost it”.

In this week’s tip, I’m going to make you try something first, it’s a very interesting experience, called the Monkey Business Illusion.

Watch the Video below and you’ll see what I mean 🙂

Incredible isn’t it!!! 

You see in Life we don’t see what we’re looking at… But instead, we see what we’re looking for! and by that, we truly miss NOTICING so many things 🙂

So the tip for this week, there it goes:

  • Lower your Fear of failure: by not looking for the failure in your potential successes
  • Be more aware of your surroundings, and the surroundings of your situations
  • Remember that what looks normal to the spider, is Chaos for the Fly 🙂

Cheers & Have a Nice week!
