Thoughts to Make You Think

Get vitalized by random acts of smartness

Years ago I read that, despite all the science known to humanity, we have not been able to explain how bumblebees fly. Something to do with the ratio between the mass of the bee and the surface area of its wings is out of whack and it should be physically impossible for bees to fly. The best the scientists could do is to say that bees take “extended leaps.” I, however, think the reason that bumblebees fly is because no one ever told them that they couldn’t Scientists never sat bees down and told them they could not fly. So, since no one is telling them they can’t, bees have no good reason to believe they can’t. Are there things in your life that others have told you are impossible and you were foolish enough to believe them and let that belief hold you back?
