A person has the ability to stretch and expand his thinking. He can choose to remain dormant, or he can devour as much material as he can get his hands on. Reading and exploring will expand the mind, and amazingly, the mind will absorb as much information as an individual is willing to feed it. It seems that the mind is thirsty for knowledge, and it is up to the individual to quench that thirst.
Once the mind has been exposed to new experiences and information, it hungers for more. These things take the individual to new levels, and many times stir his creative juices. He begins to see beyond his current situation and realizes there is more than he has previously experienced.
Knowing this, one must take extreme caution of what he feeds his mind. Whatever buffet of knowledge a person feeds himself has a tendency to grow. If he consumes information of little value, that information will take root. Over time, it will produce what has been planted. If he wants to grow in a healthier direction, he must consume knowledge that will promote such growth.
Remember, you are responsible for expanding and stretching your mind. Take the challenge and feed your mind something positive, something invigorating, something challenging. Once you do, you will never be the same.
