Thoughts are the most powerful vehicles in the world for producing change. Everything you see today began because somebody thought it. To renew your mind means to gain a different perspective and look at the world through a new lens. The key to renewing your mind is to develop a growth mindset, also referred to in Eastern philosophy as “beginner’s mind.” Coach John Wooden once said, “It’s what you learn after you know it all that counts.”
Within a beginner’s mind there are many possibilities, but in the expert’s mind there are only a few. Stay curious and be willing to question the “facts” you once believed to be irrefutable. After all, there was a point in history, when people believed it was a “fact” that the sun orbited the earth―until Galileo refused to conform to that belief. Stop thinking how things should be and begin thinking how they could be.
