The Good All Around Us Podcast

I wasted a lot of time in my life – truly 30 years – because I didn’t understand that I had the capacity to learn all that I needed to learn. I would decide that I wanted to be a graphic artist, for example, and I would begin to design things, and as soon as I ran up against something that I didn’t understand, I was defeated. And in my head, I think I was comparing my current ability to the abilities of people who were already successful in this area. So I would think, well I can understand how THAT person has the ability to do this, and be an expert. But I just can’t do it. 

My comprehension of what I could become was limited to the skills and abilities that I had at the time – not the things that I could do. I did NOT KNOW that I could just dive in and get my hands dirty and ask questions. And that’s how you learn. 

Ignorance is not bliss, and what you don’t know can hurt you. But if you have the mindset to be unstoppable, the mindset to say, “I can learn this, and I will,” then you have started down a new path, a new course of achieving that thing that you say you want.
