As the show always ends, the forensic scientist finds ground-breaking clues in the most unusual places that leads to solving a crime.
In life, sometimes we need to act like forensic scientists by looking for answers in places no one else would look in. This is also called "thinking outside the box."
You see, when we have questions, we're taught to look in typical places. For instance, my mother struggled with high blood pressure for a while. Where did she go for answers? The doctor, of course! And as expected, the doctor prescribed medications.
But I had a hunch that her blood pressure was caused by something else -- and thankfully, another doctor had the same hunch and told her why her blood pressure was always high. She had "white coat syndrome" -- that is, she was nervous about having her blood pressure taken, which actually made her pressure high!
The doctor took her off the medications!
If you are searching for an answer:
- Sometimes you have to look in less obvious places.
- Sometimes, you have to go where others haven't gone before.
- Sometimes, you need to make decisions that others would be frightened to make.
- Sometimes, when you see a dead end, you need to get out the car and walk through the woods instead.
If you ever had a toddler who lost something, you'd know that you can't just look in obvious places. You have to think like a child and look in all the places that child would care to go. Then you'd find that lost item in a place where only a PARENT would think of looking!
- If your health is poor, don't immediately think the doctor is the answer.
- If you're struggling financially, don't think that working two or three jobs is the answer.
- If your child is struggling in school, don't immediately think that he or she has ADHD!
- If you are struggling with a bad addiction, don't think you need hypnosis.
There is a better answer for you -- and that answer is in a less obvious place. Just open your eyes, think outside the box, and you'd be surprised at what you find!
