This is what he wrote to me in an email:
Today’s article is inspired by George Bernard Shaw, who once said:
“Those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.”
I’ve learned to adopt a fluid mindset. When certain ideas, beliefs, or habits are no longer serving me, I get rid of them.
And in today’s article, I share why that’s so important.
Changing your mind is a skill. The majority of people have a fixed mindset. Once they think a certain way, they are less likely to change.
If you learn how to change your mind and adopt a fluid mindset, you can always adapt to change.
Have a great week!
I got to thinking about how close this was to what I’ve been thinking, and how coincidental it is with myself coming across such as Darius writes. Obviously I’m not the only one who thinks this way but, do you ever feel like ‘stuff was put out there just for you?’
Yesterday I was telling myself to think from inside the box. That way I won’t get so lost in thought (especially when there’s a traffic jam), and to keep it simple. Not to relish on ideas, making them out to be bigger than they actually are, which leads to confusion. I really don’t think that it’s a knack that we are naturally aware of. I wasn’t – hence why I enjoy following the people that I do. Their wealth of knowledge is invaluable and, to me anyway, it makes a lot of sense.
