Years ago, my mother gave me a book called ‘Games For the Super-Intelligent‘. Clearly, she had faith in me!
Unfortunately, I didn’t believe in myself at the time. And the book’s title put me off right from the beginning. I found myself struggling to come up with the answers.
I allowed myself to believe that I wasn’t “super-intelligent” and even if I was, all the games would be necessarily more complicated.
What I discovered is that “super-intelligence” is relative and more often than not, it’s demonstrated through simplicity rather than complexity.
As I have learned over the years, the less I thought hard about a solution, the more likely I was to find it.
Action – If you define an obstacle to your progress as a ‘challenge’, you make it more difficult to solve.
Don’t allow your blocks to be daunting and complicated. Treat the obstacle as simply a puzzle you CAN solve, and you’ll find the solution faster than you think!
