In bodybuilding, it is known that you should always work your weakest muscle first. If your biceps are weak but your triceps are strong, always working your triceps first will leave you little energy to work and build your biceps — your biceps will remain weak.
Similarly, when learning something new, it would make most sense to concentrate on those things which we find most difficult. Doing so would ensure that we live to our highest potential and do not become limited in our abilities.
Believing we have limits and doubting the possibility of that which we can’t even imagine greatly limits the extent to what we can accomplish. After all, believing that something is possible is the first step in making it a reality.
Christopher Columbus sailed across the ocean, Thomas Edison created the light bulb, and the Wright Brothers successfully proved manned flight was possible, by having strong belief in their possibility.
As human beings, we not only have the unique ability to make conscious decisions, but we have the amazing ability to take something unbelievable, believe in it, and make it a reality. This leads us to discovery, invention, learning, and the self-improvement.
One of the only things that is holding us back is our common belief that we know everything which prevents us from discovering and learning new things. It is said that there are so few things left to be invented nowadays, but it may be possible that it’s just the vast wealth of information available to us that is restricting our creative energies. We’re constantly reminded of how much we already know and how much we, as a human race, have already learned and discovered.
Martin Cooper invented the cell phone after just watching some of the first episodes of Star Trek. When he saw Captain Kirk communicate wirelessly using the communicator, he said, “Why not? That should be reality!” And just think about how far that technology has come up to today.
Anything is possible, even in the most unbelievable circumstances. All you have to do is just believe in possibility.
