You don’t know what you don’t know.

How powerful would you be if you knew more of what you don’t know?

Most of us have learning boundaries.

It’s as if we only have tolerance to learn beyond a self-limiting depth.

Given that, how do we stretch ourselves with new thought – knowledge – wisdom?

An even more mind bending thought:

“What do you know that you don’t remember that you know?”

Forgotten wisdom.

Our brains are muscles which must be exercised to stay nimble.

Without appropriate stimulation, they get stale, musty, and foggy.

How do we tap into all of this “Latent Knowledge” within our beans?

I believe to do this, we must adopt a perspective of curiosity and vulnerability.

Be inquisitive – a seeker of new knowledge and rememberer of old knowledge that’s embedded in the nether region of our brains.

Be vulnerable – Ask other people to interrogate you.

Yes! I intentionally used the word “Interrogate” because so many of our brain are cluttered and guarded such that our first answer is rarely the REAL authentic answer, so . . . we must do some onion peeling.

With every answer, go deeper by asking “Why?” or “What more can you say about this?”

If you REALLY want to tap into this veritable gold mind . . . End each series of questions with: “What emotion are you feeling?”

Give it a try . . . if you dare!
