23 Jul The Bridge to Possible
What do you think is possible for you?
What do you think is possible for your life?
Before we can answer those questions we need to, according to Tim Fargo, first cross the bridge of our insecurities.
The first step is to allow ourselves to be vulnerable.
No easy task.
The be vulnerable, according to Dr. Maria Nemeth, is to allow the winds of life to blow freely over your soul.
To let life in, on life’s own terms.
To be vulnerable means you realize there’s nothing to protect.
Surrendering to your insecurities allows you to soften and allow every experience in.
When we surrender, we soften the edges.
Where the light seeps in.
Where the seed of love and all possibilities grow.
“When you become comfortable with uncertainty, infinite possibilities open up in your life.”
WHAT I’M READING?
It was Richard Feynman’s outrageous and scintillating method of teaching that earned him legendary status among students and professors of physics. From 1961 to 1963, Feynman delivered a series of lectures at the California Institute of Technology that revolutionized the teaching of physics around the world.
In a bold and provocative interpretation of economic history, Matt Ridley, the New York Times-bestselling author of Genome and The Red Queen, makes the case for an economics of hope, arguing that the benefits of commerce, technology, innovation, and change—what Ridley calls cultural evolution—will inevitably increase human prosperity. Fans of the works of Jared Diamond (Guns, Germs, and Steel), Niall Ferguson (The Ascent of Money), and Thomas Friedman (The World Is Flat) will find much to ponder and enjoy in The Rational Optimist.
In his most provocative and practical book yet, one of the foremost thinkers of our time redefines what it means to understand the world, succeed in a profession, contribute to a fair and just society, detect nonsense, and influence others.
