Summary:
“No one ever gets far unless he accomplishes the impossible at least once
a day.”
Elbert Hubbard

At all times we are making a conscious effort to make and create. It
never stops. We can't help it!

Sometimes we don't know what we want to make and create so we just do
things to mark time. At other times what we want might seem beyond our
capabilities and way out of reach.

My question today is: is what you want really 'Mission Impossible?'

I like to play with words....


Keywords:
mission impossible, purpose, meaning and direction.


Article Body:
“No one ever gets far unless he accomplishes the impossible at least once

Elbert Hubbard

At all times we are making a conscious effort to make and create. It
never stops. We can't help it!

Sometimes we don't know what we want to make and create so we just do
things to mark time. At other times what we want might seem beyond our
capabilities and way out of reach.

My question today is: is what you want really 'Mission Impossible?'

I like to play with words. Fiddling with impossible I discovered, with a
little thought and creativity, that I could take impossible and create
something much more satisfying.

Through thought and a little punctuation tinkering I came up with - I'M
POSSIBLE.

The difference between 'impossible' and 'I'm possible' then is a tweak in
my thoughts - in this case an inverted comma and space.

Funnily enough what often lies between the 'impossible' and 'I'm
possible' is the same sort of tweak in thought - shifting the reality
from what you see to what you don't see.
When I'm being 'impossible' I see things working out wrong, me as a
failure, things being hard and frustrating. Loneliness.

When I'm being 'I'm possible' I see rich sea of resources, people lending
me help, easiness, a fun experience with eventual success.

I've learned that I prefer the 'I'm possible' option, so I tend to start
with this in mind, but sometimes the 'impossible' does creep back in.

What make the 'impossible' thoughts evaporate more than anything is
having a true sense of purpose.

With a true sense of purpose it is easier to access resources, find
people who want to help and enjoy the ride of life more because an ever
increasing conviction of who you are and what you want comes into focus.

Once we know purpose we can expand into it.

Expansion is constant. It's all very well if you know you're purpose, but
expanding into it and filling it is another matter entirely.

A therapist might say, 'I have a full practice, I don't want any more
clients.' In this sense purpose stops expanding. But if the healer thinks
less about time and money and more about the people being denied their
healing treatments, expansion might continue.

They might learn to empower clients through talks and books, rather than
through one-to-ones.

In parenting it is no different. We want happy children. When we're being
'impossible' we see fights between siblings, and conflict between parents
and children. When being 'I'm possible' we seek ways to bring unity and
harmony into the home and discover coaches, friends or books that can
help.

Money is the same. When we're being impossible we might say 'I can't
afford this.' Often we'll use money as an excuse for not doing something.
We'll procrastinate, run away or even destroy good opportunities. When
we're being 'I'm possible' we'll explore money, understand it and learn
to work with it rather than treat it like a bad dog.

Other aspect of life - growing a business, deepening your relationships,
saving the planet are no different. All it takes is a shift in thought.

Today's question:

Is what you want really 'Mission Impossible?'

Change what you see. tweak your thoughts, find the resources. The
opportunities, the changes POSSIBLE are exciting.

Love and good wishes
Neil
