Positive Quote: “The eyes see only what the mind is prepared to comprehend.” – Henri-Louis Bergson
Have you ever taken one of those tests where you are asked what you see, not a Rorschach test, per se, yet an image where you see something in it and someone sees something else. When the other person tells you what they see, then you can see it too. Yet, you wonder, why you did not see it before, until it was pointed out to you.
Well, to me that is kind of what this quote is talking about. Your mind can only see what it is able to understand, associate, and comprehend. However, as leaders we need to be able to see and digest more and more to be agile and successful. There are many ways of doing this… you can read books, have mentors or be a mentee, you can take classes, you can network with others and share thoughts… there are many ways. Yet, one must grow to continue to evolve and be able to ‘see’ more than what can be seen today.

Have a marvelous Wednesday and here is to us all helping our minds see more than they did last week.
