Even if you’ve never been an athlete or worked out, I’m sure you can relate to the idea of stretching before and after exercising.
When you stretch your muscles you have the potential to grow.
The great thing about stretching one’s mind is it opens up the thought process for future stretching. You cannot and will not get better at anything unless you are willing to stretch.
There are people who go to the gym week after week and make little or no progress because they do the same 3 sets of 8 reps of the same exercise. They only thing they are stretching is their time, which is wasted.
Until you decide to stretch your mind, you’re going to remain right where you are. Remaining where you are might actually be where you want to be.
A mind once stretched never regains its past form. That’s all I’m gonna say, Tommy Gibbs
“Man’s mind, once stretched by a new idea, never regains its original dimensions.” Oliver Wendell Holmes
