Here’s my theory on this, and I’m going to reference the slew of young kids pulling off insane skate tricks (like 720’s) that just a handful of years ago seemed impossible except to only the top .0001% of pros.
These kids don’t know they shouldn’t be able to do these things, so they just do them.
We set these limits up for ourselves. We tell ourselves “HFS that is hard, I could never do that” so then we never do it. But kids are too young to kneecap themselves like that. They see videos of people doing things and so they know they can be done and then they go ahead and do them too. They don’t have the self imposed limits we do.
A friend of mine who is one of the top people in his field once confided in me that when instructing new people, he often gives them what would have been considered unattainable goals when he was learning, and the students don’t know that, so they all strive to hit that mark and many of them pass it. Later he tells them the magic they just worked. Once, he told the class first how hard the goal was, and not a single one of them hit it.
We could all learn something from this attitude.
