“I don’t only use my whole brain, I still ask to borrow more.” – Woodrow Wilson
The English language has an expression that is so interesting that I can not resist to share it here: “A mind is a terrible thing to waste“. When a person gives up on studying and learning, they’re wasting a lot of their potential.
Did you know that the brain has an infinite capacity to learn?
When you’re learning something you are simply creating new connections between neurons (synapses). In the beggining thing are like walking without a trail on the grass. But as you go insisting, practicing, improving, these links start becoming stronger until they are implemented by hardware in the brain as a path much traveled.
So what seemed so difficult, it has become simple and you can now perform these tasks almost automatically.
When this happens, it’s time to start doing new things, challenging, uncomfortable, learn something new and create new connections.
There is no limit to the amount of these synapses you can have and therefore to what you can achieve.
Read all the books, watch all the movies, study all authors, express yourself, become an accountant and a artist, a homemaker (being a man or woman) and a farmer and a shoemaker, writer, adventurer, dancer and karate monk , yogi and athlete, pilgrim and businessman, rich and diver, parachutist and public servant.
Be all you can be.
Your mind, once expanded, never returns to its initial size.
Use your brain to the fullest and ask to borrow more: choose your mentors among the best. Search among people who you know or heard off. With the Internet you will not have trouble finding someone qualified to copy from whatever the area that you wanna dedicate yourself to.
