We all have blind spots.
One type of blind spot is physical and the other is made up from our adaptations while growing up.
We humans accept the physical blind spot easily enough. Most of us don’t even think of it as a problem. The brain does the work by filling in the blind spot based on surrounding landscape.
However, the blind spot we developed growing up has a lot to do with how we see the world.
That’s why putting several people together and asking them their opinion will result in several different answers.
Your internal blind spot can lead you to limit your perspective and thus limit your possible results.
Here are some ideas to consider in facing your blind spots:
- Look at how you judge people and circumstances. Chances are those judgments cloud what might be possible.
- What are you afraid of? Childhood fears go into the background as people grow up. Yet they lurk inside you adjusting the way your world is experienced.
- What kind of thinker are you? Some people can see big picture and others can only see what is in front of them. Neither one is good or bad It’s just that your view of the world and what is happening gets adjusted according to the way you think. Thus a blind spot occurs.
Recognizing your blind spots is a wise thing to do.
When you understand where they are you open the door to more possibilities.
Now, that’s a good thing.
This is who you are.
