Ready…Set (Theory)….Go – PART 1
Welcome to Self-Help Set Theory, the study of two or more sets in relation to each other.
Today, I will be introducing you to the simplest form of Set Theory, a subset within an infinite set.
The Rectangle above represents the infinite universe.
The Circle within the rectangle represents You in the infinite universe.
From these two sets, I propose the following:
The infinite universe, the rectangle, contains all that is.
You, the circle, are part of the infinite universe and lie within the rectangle.
Accepting this, I will go a step further and say:
The Infinite Universe is made up of two things, “the known” and “the unknown.”
You, the circle, represents the all that you currently know or “the known.”
What can we say about the known?
The known is known, the tried-and-true, the comfort zone, the been-there-done-that of life, the same-old-same-old and land of the ego. In other words, it’s your past. Nothing new or exciting here.
What can we say about the unknown?
The unknown is in the here and now, where new things happen, dreams are realized, opportunities seized and skills mastered. the unknown.
Knowing what you know now, where would you like to focus your life?
“The unknown,” you say? Good answer!
And, how do you do that?
Allow yourself to experience as many new things as possible. Think outside your circle. Dream bigger dreams. Question your limiting beliefs. Learn as many new things as possible each day and consider new and innovative ways of doing the things. Observe others that have succeeded where you wish to succeed and incorporate their strategies. Ask for help from positive and nurturing souls, and in turn, share what you have learned with those that seek your knowledge. And above all else, stay as present as possible in each and every moment.
