Becoming a Possibility Thinker begins when you realize that your life moves in the direction of your most dominant thoughts.
The difficulty that many people have is becoming entrapped in the routines of everyday life. When you are younger, it is easier to conceptualize the idea of taking your life to higher levels, doing things that most people only dream about. Unfortunately, as life goes on, and your dreams are not realized, we become doubtful about what is actually possible in our lives. As a result of this, many people end up getting caught in their daily routines, never achieving what they hoped to accomplish earlier in life.
“Probable impossibilities are to be preferred to improbable possibilities.” –Aristotle
“To raise new questions, new possibilities, to regard old problems from a new angle, requires creative imagination and marks real advance in science.” –Albert Einstein
You don’t have to brilliant to be successful. There are many people with what seems to be ordinary gifts who have made extraordinary contributions to society. It begins with learning where your strengths are, then focusing those strengths to defined objectives.
“Genius is one percent inspiration and 99% perspiration.” – Thomas Edison
However, there is hope for those that would like to change their mundane mindset. It is possible to once again think of all of the possibilities, and believe that you can achieve at least some of them. In this article, I will present some ways of becoming a possibility thinker, someone that can rise from the ashes of defeat and slowly become an achiever that can accomplish what they set out to do long ago.
“Without leaps of imagination, or dreaming, we lose the excitement of possibilities. Dreaming, after all, is a form of planning.” –Gloria Steinen
One of the first things that you need to do to become a possibility thinker is to “make a list” of what you want to accomplish.
The list is important, but even more so, you need to “visualize” what it is you want to manifest in your life.
“Goal setting” is part of this process, but you must actually see yourself where you want to be, feeling the emotions of actually being in a situation that will make you happy and fulfilled. In essence, you are breaking the normal routines that you currently face everyday by having this different mindset.
Once you do this, and visualize where you want to be on a regular basis, becoming a possibility thinker is within your grasp.
Although there are many other facets to this way of thinking, this is the foundation that you need to set first.
