What Beliefs Have You Outgrown?

Every organism has to keep changing just to stay competitive.

If we’re not ready to adapt and remake ourselves as the environment changes, the world will evolve and leave us behind.

Time waits for no man. Especially not the man addicted to what used to work because he’s romantic about it. Technology is the obvious example. We can insulate ourselves for a while, but eventually, it will become harder and harder to say that we don’t want to be part of it. And when we start to feel like it’s the story of our time that we’re not a part of, the fear of missing out will force us to evolve.

There’s always a choice.

Negatively govern our growth by insisting we never diversify, or outgrow our old beliefs and open ourselves to the complete possibility of what might be.
