I recently came across the 9 dot puzzle and trying to solve it awakened my consciousness to how our minds create constraints that make it difficult for us to think beyond the obvious.
If you haven't solved the 9 dot puzzle yet then I suggest you give it a try. Here it is :
Don't rush to see the solution. You will easily find it if you google it. Instead try to solve it by yourself, first🙂
I could not solve it & had to look up the solution. I saw one and thought that was it. Only to later realise that there were many more solutions to the puzzle. This made me stop and wonder about some of my own life problems and how I was trying to solve them.
I realized the possibility of their being so many more solutions to the problems I was trying to solve. May be even better ones than I had discovered. And this belief made me feel positive, & hopeful.
So if you are reading this, and are finding yourself stuck trying to solve something, then don't give up yet. Know that there is definitely a way. Most likely many better ways. And you will find it if you keep an open mind & look for possibilities.
Did you manage to solve the 9 dot puzzle without looking into the solution? What did trying to solve this teach you ? Drop me a mail or post in the comments. I would love to hear your thoughts.
