If you only had four things in your fridge, what could you cook?
Of course, it would depend on the four things.
Bacon, eggs, bread, butter.
That would be easy.
But after a while it would get pretty boring.
Suppose you only had four DVD’s.
Maybe even phrase it as the famous “island question.”
If you were stuck on an island, which four DVD’s would you bring?
Any way you slice it, whatever “category” you put those four things in, the answer would always be very limited.
Four cities to live in and travel to.
Four kinds of food. (That would at least give you some variety).
However, all of us are ONLY made up of four basic “things.”
Cytosine, guanine, adenine and thymine.
These are the four nucleotides.
Only these four make up EVERYTHING about you.
The difference is precisely HOW they are arranged.
Put them in one order, and you’re dead before you’ve got a chance.
Put them in another order, and you have super human skills of X-men proportions.
Nobody knows WHEN or IF we’ll be able understand what order matches what trait.
Or even if there’s more going on than we can measure.
After all, take two similar people and they can create VASTLY different things.
These DNA nucleotides create the structure of your brain.
But who or what creates the thoughts that you think?
Most people are content to think thoughts that others think.
It’s not complicated.
Some people think different thoughts, but they still do the same things.
The precious few who make a huge difference are those who THINK differently as well as ACT differently.
Because without actions, thoughts are just a hobby.
But how do you KNOW what to think?
How do you know HOW to think?
That’s the secret.
There ARE no rules.
You can make them up as you go along.
Keep trying different “thoughts” in different orders, until you hit on a winning combination that will forever change your life, and the world around you.
