When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.
– Dr. Wayne Dyer

There are things known and there are things unknown, and in between are the doors of perception.
– Aldous Huxley

It is one of the commonest of mistakes to consider that the limit of our power of perception is also the limit of all there is to perceive.
– C.W. Leadbeater

A few weeks ago I met Amanda, an ex dancer who now worked with professional dancers transitioning into other fields.

Can you imagine being passionate from childhood about an activity like dancing, then making it your career knowing that at some point you will have to give it up? Heart breaking.

Fortunately we’re not one-dimensional and we have skills and talents we have never even explored.

Amanda shared with me the experience of one of the dancers who by the time he was in his mid-thirties, found he had to give up dancing.

He had often thought of being a physio-therapist but had done poorly in the sciences in high school. And then he only had time for dancing.

Years later he revisited thoughts of that possible career. However he was still lacking science courses.

With Amanda’s encouragement, he took a couple of courses in math and science and to his shock – he got A’s! He took some more of these courses and continued to excel.

He now had to change his perceptions of himself as someone who couldn’t succeed academically. He decided to apply to a number of universities for different programs.

He called Amanda to tell her he had good news and bad news.

The good news was that he was admitted into a program for physiotherapy.

The bad news was that he was also admitted into medical school! He now had more choices than he had thought possible!

Is there an old image of yourself that you need to discard? We often are not aware of our self-limiting beliefs that are holding us back in life. Now is a good time to dust off a desire we’ve kept hidden because we couldn’t do it…and then try it out. Risk a little. Have some fun.
