"We need to think inside-the-box because that's where we tap into our pure potential"- Maria J.
Here are a few excerpts from the college essay of one of my brilliant Ecuadorian students- Maria J.
"Thinking outside of the box is backwards!"
As I sit in on small-business networking groups, I often hear- "Think outside the box."
I've always thought that to be a bit silly, but I really didn't understand how so until Maria explained it so clearly in her essay.
In her excellent college essay, Maria explains-
"We need to think inside-the-box because that's where we tap into our pure potential."
"The proverbial box itself is my protective layer-of-skin. Its contents are my thoughts, emotions, desires, vision, values, perspectives, experiences...where my internal potential gives rise to infinite possibilities."
"Inside the box is where I can dream, visualize, intellectualize, and emotionalize. It's where I can turn my desires into reality."
Moms, Dads, and students across the planet, this is brilliant. I suggest that we all spend a little more time, maybe a lot more time, thinking inside the box!!!
