The Director of US Patent Office in 1899, Charles H Duell,
reportedly said, “Everything that can be invented has been invented”
and recommended that the patent office could be closed
as surely there was no longer a need for it.

How ridiculous, you might say,
but how many of our beliefs, hidden, unobserved,
might be viewed just as ridiculous
if they were brought into the light of day?
It is only by uncovering our beliefs in limitation
that we can create a larger, more expansive life
for ourselves and create greater success.
