DAILY MINDSET
“Attempt the impossible, in order to improve your work.” – Brian Tracey

When we really think about it, that’s quite the statement.
“Attempt the impossible”.

To try something that the world tells us cannot be. Where failure, is all but guaranteed. Where every sign is telling us we’re going to fall flat on our face, in front of everyone, embarassed.

But then we again spend a moment in thought thinking about it. Even in the most outrageous attempts, where we essentially are promising ourselves defeat… something amazing happens. We learn.

It’s not trying things to fail – it’s trying things, to learn.

We know how the brain grows. It becomes better through stress. And if we live in the realm of comfort and confidence in everything we do, we cease to grow. We cease to improve. We’ve stagnated, and many would argue that stagnation is actually regression.

Brian Tracey urges us to attempt the impossible, to stretch ourselves. To push our growth. To play in the places that make us feel quite literally stupid. Well knowing we are going to face plant, and laugh at our attempt.

Because as much of a paradox as it seems, by feeling stupid, we become smarter.
