Creativity is a Mind Game

Here is something for you and I to think about. Why is the lion considered the King of the Jungle?

  • He’s not the tallest … giraffes are taller.
  • He’s not the biggest … elephants are bigger.
  • He’s not the heaviest … hippos are heavier.
  • He’s not the smartest … hyenas are smarter.
  • He’s not the most intelligent … Chimpanzees are more intelligent.

When an elephant sees a lion, he runs, even though he’s bigger, stronger, smarter, and more powerful than the cat.

The elephant is a VICTIM of how he thinks!

Now, when the lion sees an elephant, he charges towards the elephant because he believes he can eat the elephant.

What’s wrong here?

The lion is the King of the Jungle because he has a different attitude. A lion’s actions reflect the way he thinks. This attitude makes all the animal kingdom respect the lion more than any other animal.

Picture this: Two persons, same skills, same degrees, same economic conditions, same location, same problem identified by both. One thinks “lunch” while the other thinks “danger.”

Difference? Attitude.

Attitude is the result of beliefs. Our actions reflect what we believe. We become what we believe. We limit ourselves by what we believe.

No one can live beyond the limits of their beliefs.

No degrees, no training, no titles, no money, no networking, no people … can substitute your belief system.

So, stop thinking “I can’t do this.” Stop making excuses. Change your belief system. Your ability to become an entrepreneur, be more creative is trapped by traditions and your culture …

… and of course our broken Industrial Age educational system. Play the mind game and win at it.
