In this episode, Dr. Pillay explains how the neuroscience of possibility enhances ordinary life into living an extraordinary life. A remarkable life as a life of low probability. In other words, it cannot be exceptional if it’s a high probability.

Being exceptional requires being outside the norm, the average, or standard. Thus, if you want an exceptional life, you have to distinguish between possibility and probability.

Let’s throw away these notions of realism or fitting in the standards set by others. Because if you want an ordinary life that’s in the norm, then that’s what you’re sure to get.
