“One can have no smaller or greater mastery, than mastery of oneself.” – Leonardo DiVinci
Leonardi DiVinci was one of the first documented individuals to believe that humans could take flight.
Before it was invented… talk about a nightmarish idea. The thought of hurling ourselves into the air, like a bird, with no guarantee of landing. For him to write the above quote, speaks to his greatest accomplishment – his mastery over his mind. He well knew of the risks, and well recognized the fears. But he believed it to be possible regardless.
It’s good to acknowledge the primary job of our brain – to keep us safe.
It’s going to aim to convince us that we want to avoid risk, danger, and failure.
The saying “it’s you versus you” couldn’t be truer.
It’s not the competition that will beat us. It will only be ourselves.
