I read an interesting study — can’t recall who it was or I’d cite — it talked about researchers asking a group of kids “if” something is possible, vs. “how” something is possible. The results were fascinating.
The example they gave was asking one group of kids if a quadriplegic can drive a car. Most of the kids said no, of course not. Then they asked another group of kids “how” a quadriplegic can drive a car, and the ideas flowed like honey. Re-framing our words can be a powerful way to change behavior, too.
I enjoyed the new book, hope you do, too. :)
