This quote comes from Mae Jemison. As a history-making astronaut, she had to overcome limiting beliefs about her goals and aspirations. If she had believed others’ limited imagination, she wouldn’t have even tried to do some of the things she’s been able to accomplish.
This quote reminds us to not allow other’s limited imagination to limit us. Furthermore, it reminds us to not limit others by our own limited imagination.
Meanwhile, there’s one more thing that this quote brings to light.
Most major scientific discoveries are the product of limitless imagination. Perhaps, if we apply the same limitless imagination to ourselves, we might also experience a major discovery–the discovery of our true potential.
