Mental Attitude

Alexander spoke of the mental attitude being of primary importance; real learning and fundamental change can't take place without the calm receptivity that comes with having an "open mind".  The rational faculty cannot be fully objective or fully functional without a mind free of preconceptions, open to all-possibility.

"If you believe what you have always believed,
Then you will think what you have always thought.

If you think what you have always thought,
Then you will do what you have always done.

If you do what you have always done,
Then you will get what you have always gotten."
(author unknown)


If you want to get something new, different, better...
You will need to inhibit an underlying belief--stop believing it.
Two of the most important beliefs to inhibit/prevent are "That's not possible" and "I can't".
