The power of two-year olds

No one is as resolute as two-year olds. When they want something, they are willing to go to war for it.

One would rarely convince them against their causes because they don’t know enough to think about failing when it comes to what they want. Often, they’d keep trying until successful.

This brings me to a question today: “When do we know too much to fight for our dreams, to take ‘no’ for an answer or need social validation? It happens when we kill off our inner two-year olds.

Now, society doesn’t silence our two-year old selves. We do it to ourselves by internalizing too much information about not being good, smart or worthy enough.

If you want to take on the world, you may need to reconnect with that inner two-year old because with him or her, there are no obstacles at all.
