Full credit goes to “The Art Of Possibility” by Ben & Rosamund Zander for this phrase, from chapter 1.
It is all invented.
That story that you tell yourself about why you have to do this or that.
About why you have to live to that a particular expectation.
About whether you can or cannot solve this problem.
About whether you can choose to keep seeing things the same way, or instead …
… see what’s possible.
