📅 Thought for today:
‘‘Don’t be careful. You could hurt yourself.’’
— Byron Katie

I mentioned yesterday that I would be using some Byron Katie quotes this week, and here’s another.
This is not a charter to be reckless, it is a suggestion that letting go of our fears, allowing experiences, can be fulfilling and help us grow.
Conversely, by accepting our fears as limits, we may miss the opportunity to grow.
I am reminded of the work of Carol Dweck in her book Mindset.
That believing we cannot increase our intelligence becomes self-limiting – I might even say self-harming.
That by accepting that we can do anything, as well as we can, and that is the definition of “good”, we open up opportunities.
To paraphrase another quote “Don’t live the same year 75 times and call it a life.”
If you’ve wondered why I keep pushing myself on the learning, and trying new things, then now you know.
