Everything Is Figureoutable
How much do I want to read more? 8/10
A powerful book that instills a powerful mindset.
Like the mum in the intro who could repair everything in her house, because she had this mindset: when you really put the effort into something, you can figure it out. How to fix a roof, a wall, a radio. It reminds me of Pierre who could disassemble a car's motor, and make it work again. He certainly had this mindset. He also had that same confidence when playing chess with a computer intelligence: He knew he could beat it, he could figure out the weakness.
A must-read to get inspired with the right motivation.
The power isn’t out there,
it’s in you.
1- The Tropicana Orange
The obvious is that which is never seen until someone expresses it simply.
-- Kahlil Gibran
“Hey, Mom, how do you know how to do so many different things that you’ve never done before, without anyone showing you how to do it?”
She put down her screwdriver, turned to me, and said, “Don’t be silly, Ree. Nothing in life is that complicated. You can do whatever you set your mind to if you just roll up your sleeves, get in there, and do it. Everything is figureoutable.”
Everything Is Figureoutable!
It’s what gave me the audacity to start a business at twenty-three and build it into a multimillion-dollar.
It’s what fueled me to start filming videos using my first-generation webcam, which would later evolve into an award-winning online show.
because deep in my bones I am that certain everything really is figureoutable.
No matter what you’re facing, you have what it takes to figure anything out and become the person you’re meant to be.
you are not broken. Nothing is intrinsically wrong with you. You’re not a mistake, or a fraud, or a fake. You’re not weak or incapable.
Our educational system doesn’t train us to harness the power of our thoughts, beliefs, emotions, and the wisdom of our bodies. It doesn’t teach us how to develop winning mindsets, perspectives, and practical habits not only to meet and overcome life’s challenges but also to experience real joy and fulfillment.
As the great Maya Angelou said, “Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.”

You don’t make progress by standing on the sidelines, whimpering and complaining. You make progress by implementing ideas.
