Success vs Failure
Quantum Superposition: Success vs Failure
Hey guys, I hope you all had a good week. Today I want to give you a bit of motivation and explain why sometimes we need to push harder instead of losing hope. But first a little backstory of the source of my inspiration for this topic.
In 1935, Erwin Schrödinger, an Austrian physicist carried out an experiment in which he placed a cat in a box along with a flask of poison and a radioactive source. Long story short while observing the situation it would be impossible to determine if the cat is alive or dead without opening the box, during this state the cat can be either alive or dead until the box is opened the cat is in a state called Quantum superposition because we won’t know what the reality is until we open the box and find out.
This is the state many of our lives are in because we refuse to take chances because we are afraid to find a dead cat. We refuse to discover what our reality is because we are afraid we may have to create a new one. But until we open the box to our success we will never know what we are working with and inevitably choose failure. The funny thing about such a paradox is that we are afraid to fail so we accept the failure without trying not realizing that trying is the first step to success. We spend time fearing to open the box because we are afraid of what we will find, but if we stand and stare at the box we will never become aware of the reality that we are greatness waiting to happen and we are talented beyond what we imagined.
Yes, we may open the box to find a dead cat, but now we can bury that cat in the past and move on with a purpose and discover new cats and new ideas. The first step is always to discover the tools we have at our disposal and if we discover we have not this is an opportunity to make art out of the dirt we walk on.
So do you want to stay unsure of your potential forever or do you want to try and see what you find?
