We have all heard of this fancy, sophisticated slogan, “Out of the box thinking.” What does it actually mean? Does it mean to think something totally outrageous—something which hasn’t been thought of by anyone on this planet? Do we need to think out of the box just for the heck of it? Is the ‘out of the box thinking’ just a new fad or hip thing—or is there something more going on here than it meets the eye?
Well, let’s find out.
For most of our lives, we have, consciously or unconsciously, set certain kinds of limits or boundaries, beyond which we think we can’t go or are above our paycheck level. These boundaries are both physical and mental. In reality, we don’t really have any limitations. Whatever the mind can perceive, the body can do. And sometimes when we break our own limits, intentionally or unintentionally, we feel like we are on cloud seven. That’s how you grow out of the tiny little box you have stuffed yourself in. You thought you were just a teensy droplet in the ocean, only to realize later in life that the whole ocean is made of you.
