What are the popular sayings that knowingly—or unknowingly—guide your life? Maybe something like “stay in your lane” inspires you to become really good at following orders and not getting too curious. Or a popular phrase from The Mandalorian got you repeating “this is the way” so much that you constantly search for the right way to do something. Another saying that trips us all up—”you must know the rules to break the rules”—can keep us locked into the status quo if we don’t eventually break the rules. These are three of an unlimited amount of phrases, mantras if you will, that guide our daily actions. Examining the phrases lodged in our brains allows us to forge a new path to where we want to go. But how do we break free from the scripts, especially when doing something new goes against everything we know?
