Tip#366: Shake Up Your Mindset - Splice
Sometimes it takes highly unusual ideas and concepts to help you make positive changes in your life and career. At one time in history people believed the world was flat until someone brought up the shocking idea that it was round.
As I wrote in previous blog tip#365, to understand how and why the world of social media works is to transform your current way of thinking. Facing strange and foreign ideas is one way to shake up your mindset. It's one way to empty your cup so all things new can pour in.
The movie Splice is a science fiction story that will shake up your mindset with its provocative concepts of splicing the DNA of several animals with human cells. The result is a humanoid creature unlike anything you have ever seen before.
Seeing this exotic female and how she grows and learns will fascinate you. What will shake up your thoughts is how her creators, Elisa (Sarah Polley) and Clive (Adrien Brody) cross so many moral boundaries in her growth process.
Whether they were right or wrong is not the point. The focus is that this movie will challenge your thoughts of what YOU think is right or wrong. This is an opportunity to push your own boundaries and beliefs. And when you are able to disconnect from previous perceptions that's when new ideas and solutions can enter your mind. Your imagination and mindset has now been opened to new possibilities.
Remember to remain open to whatever is new and different. Be curious. Be like a child again and remember when everything you saw, smelled, tasted, heard and touched was shiny and new. This way you'll be more adaptable to unexpected change or crisis. You'll have a new, resilient mindset.
