Chapter 13—The Brain
Children love to explore their world, constantly asking the question, “Why?” They love creating magical roadways
with wooden blocks and playing for hours in muddy streams.
Their world is full of wonder.
Children grow up. As they have more birthdays, it becomes clear that there are two kinds of Adults.
Some are content with yesterday’s learned lessons. “Been there, done that,” is their motto. Their lives revolve around
entertainment, sport, and reading romance novels.
The second group of adults is always striving to be more, do more, and have more. Their curiosity is continually
stretched and instead of just asking “Why?” they also ask, “Why not?”
This is the group whose brain is still creating new neural pathways. As “iron sharpens iron” they experience
renewed energy with each step of a new journey. Their vision for Be, Do, and Have is the fuel that drives them
to their destination.
Which group describes you?
