Lessons from the Bumble Bee

Lessons from the Bumble Bee – Dream the Impossible Dream

To be truly successful you need to avoid being a “Limitation Thinker.” In fact, you need to be the opposite. You need to be an “Expansive Thinker.”

Now I am not suggesting that you completely abandon realism. Just don’t let being realistic close-down your natural creativity. Don’t let your realism stop you from trying to achieve things that many others might consider impossible.

Be prepared to take risks. Be prepared to be wrong – but never be prepared to not try.

Sometimes not realizing what is seen to be impossible is a distinct advantage. Just look at the bumble bee.

According to Mary Kay Ash “Aerodynamically, the bumblebee should not be able to fly. But the bumblebee doesn’t know it, so it goes on flying anyway.”

Not knowing that something is considered to be impossible can sometimes make the difference between success and failure.

If the bumblebee knew that aerodynamically it should not be able to fly, it may have just ended-up crawling along the ground and not successfully flying around pollenating our flowers, plants and crops.

Don’t limit your thinking. As in the hit song from Man of La Mancha sometimes you should not be afraid to “Dream the impossible dream” and act upon it.
