From my point of view as a writer, a story teller, I believe you write the story of your life, so I want to encourage you to write stories where you are the winner in every scene of your life. Each of us stands at the apex of a new beginning, a new life. I envision for you the courage to walk through the door that will engulf you with success bigger than any of us could have imagined; that you have enough faith to believe that if there is no bridge for you to walk across that you will be given wings to fly. It’s not lonely at the top; it’s crowded at the bottom.
All too often we like to stay with the safe option, never step outside the box or push the envelope. This is the time to Re-think the Impossible.
Often, we believe it is impossible to live our dreams, change our environment or improve our health. We feel that we are trapped. What do you do when the problems seem insurmountable; when it seems that all the doors have been nailed shut? It’s said that when one door closes God opens another one, but it sure feels like hell in the hallway. What do you do while waiting in the hallway?
The definition of impossible is incapable of being or occurring, but if you look at the word impossible, it really says I’m possible. As we rethink I AM possible. We are no longer challenged to change a situation; we are challenged to change ourselves.
Every action we take is the outgrowth of a thought. We are packed with power, and what we focus on is where the energy flows. Instead of shying away from that which has never been done, use the most powerful tool available to you, the power of thought, to make the impossible a reality.
Most of the time, we choose to do a lot of intense whining – We talk about what is wrong with our lives to people who cannot help us overcome the problem. If you do not want it to appear in your life, do not talk about it. Dare to be different. Decide to believe at least one impossible thing a day.
We have been given many tools that will change our lives, our environment, our health and anything else we need. One of these tools is Imagination. Imagination makes it possible to experience a whole world inside the mind. It gives the ability to look at any situation from a different point of view and enables one to mentally explore the past and the future. What we imagine with faith and feelings comes into being. It is the power beyond creative visualization, positive thinking, and affirmations. Your beliefs have a profound impact on your results. The most empowering belief you can have for achieving any goal, and the one which will give you the greatest results is the power of imagination, it is the true nuclear weapon. It is the eye of the soul. Limitations live only in our minds. But if we use our imaginations, our possibilities become limitless.
In this moment, allow yourself to be swept away by your imagination. Give yourself permission to dream beyond what you believe to be possible
Remember, life is too short to drink cheap champagne. Dream Big! Live the life you have imagined.
