We all have so-called “crazy” thoughts or ideas.

You may imagine an absurd scenario or think of seeing something you would never see in physical reality.

You might imagine things you would say or do that you would not carry out in real life.

It is part of being human.

As we move forward, it is always beneficial to look back, reflect, analyze and improve upon what we learn.

When we look back in history, we see countless examples of brilliant people, revolutionary people, and game-changers who were called crazy by those around them who did not understand or perhaps were fearful of something different.

Humans are creatures of habit, and anything that goes against what we are accustomed to can seem crazy or out of sync with what we are used to.

What makes something crazy?

As Dave Chappelle said “The worst thing to call somebody is crazy. It’s dismissive.”

Defining something as crazy is a judgment.

We lose out on the potential of benefiting from knowledge or wisdom when we dismiss things as crazy.

Dr. George Washington Carver was called crazy when he said plants communicated with him.

He developed thousands of applications for peanuts, soy, and sweet potato that saved the economy of the entire southern United States.

The Wright brothers were called crazy because they said they could put a person on a machine and fly into the air until they did it.

Not that any of us have to be Dr. Carver or the Wright brothers, but it means that we have to be open to ideas that differ from ours.

It is important to not judge ourselves too harshly for random “crazy” thoughts.
