Nothing is impossible - the word itself says 'I'm possible'! ~Audrey Hepburn

Can you feel the joy from this quote? It exudes energy and uplifts the reader by thinking about the possibilities in life.

Looking at the possibilities in your life has been the focus in our last few blogs and I want to continue that trend today. Allowing yourself to think about the possibilities is akin to the daydreams of a child.

As we have discussed the last few weeks, imagination helps bring our dreams to the light of day. Imagination precedes reality, but of course, we have to believe first.

Explore the obstacles to your own beliefs in the possibilities for yourself. Typical roadblocks include not having enough time, not having a clear direction, or other obligations to your job, friends, or family.

Let yourself believe in the possibilities and you can realize your dreams. Write down what you what for yourself. This small task can help manifest dreams and change behavior.

You may remember the example of “logging” to facilitate behavioral change we talked about a few weeks ago. Most people’s behavior begins to change as soon as they write down observations about that very behavior.

Writing things down helps to focus your attention on what you want to achieve, which is an important key in beginning to make changes. Increase your awareness and give yourself permission to make the impossible possible by writing down your dreams!

As we begin the holiday season, I love thinking about the possibilities in life. The energy and openness to the needs of others and the possibilities in life become more real at this time of year because people become more open to hope than at other times of the year. Get involved in making dreams come true – whether yours or others.

Make possibilities come alive within yourself and feel the joy in connecting with your creative spirit and making your dreams a reality!
