Daily Motivation

"I teach something called The Law of Probabilities, which says the
more things you try, the more likely one of them will work. The more
books you read, the more likely one of them will have an answer to a
question that could solve the major problems of your life.. make you
wealthier, solve a health problem, whatever it might be."

--Jack Canfield

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things
that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the
bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in
your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."

--Mark Twain

We can be conditioned from the time we are children to see every
choice and every question as having a right and wrong answer. For most
things however, and especially for the most important things, this is
not true. Combine this with most people's tendency to put more effort
into avoiding the negative than seek the positive, and you have a
recipe for stifled creativity and opportunity. Life does not have a
right answer, only a an answer of what is right for you right now.
This is just a habit though, and one that can be broken. Start making
a new habit of experimenting, or trying new things. For one day, make
a commitment to only eat foods you have never tried before. The more
you get in the habit of experimenting, the less you will be handcuffed
by a right-wrong mindset.
