How many times have you had a thought or a belief that certain things in your life are "just not possible" and found that this way of thinking can sometimes limit your potential?
"I cannot do that"
"I will not get better"
"My body cannot fix this illness"
"That is just not possible" etc etc etc.....
Sometimes, I help people to reflect on this subject matter by realizing that there is certain things in life that are actually quite miraculous and yet, we can not believe in things that are "much less miraculous".
For example, if we can believe that a single human egg can divide and multiply to form a baby and then, develops and grows into an independent adult human being, then why does it seem that certain things which are far less complex about your health or in your life seem so "impossible" to you?
Of course, you cannot live a functional life thinking that everything is possible but almost certainly, you cannot have a fullfilled life thinking that things are "just not possible" for you.
So next time you think that something is just not possible for you, pause and reflect on this article and ask yourself the question, "Is that really true?"
Adding a dose of possibility to your life maybe a good thing......Food for thought.
