What Reality Are You Creating?


Isaac Lidsky




Reality isn't something you perceive: it's something you create in your mind. Isaac Lidsky learned this profound lesson firsthand, when unexpected life circumstances yielded valuable insights.


When Dorothy was a little girl, she was fascinated by her goldfish. Her father explained to her that fish swim by quickly wagging their tails to propel themselves through the water. Without hesitation, little Dorothy responded Yes, daddy and fish swim backwards by wagging their heads. In her mind, it was a fact as true as any other fish swim backwards by wagging their heads. She believed our lives are full of fish winning backwards.

We make assumptions and faulty leaps of logic, we harbor bias, we know that we are right and they are wrong. We fear the worst. We strive for unattainable perfection. We tell ourselves what we can and cannot do. In our minds, fish swim by and reverse, frantically wagging their heads, and we don't even notice them. I'm gonna tell you five facts about myself.
