Be Willing to Entertain What Seems Impossible

Sometimes we can find ourselves wondering if something is even possible. Well, try to be willing to entertain what seems impossible as a way to get unstuck.

A Look Back

In the article Ask What Would Make the Impossible Possible we looked at the idea of asking that question. I doubt that many people make the effort to do that and as a result are missing out on opportunities. Instead they look at what seems impossible, throw up their hands in surrender and move on to something that seems more likely. What if everyone operated that way? A lot good things would not have been invented like cell phones, the internet, and GPS to name just a few. I’m sure that when those concepts were first considered there were plenty of people who gave up because they thought they were impossible. Well look at what they missed out on.

Remember when you were in school and you were trying to learn a difficult concept? At times you may have felt like you would never master that concept, yet the chances are high that you now use that knowledge on a regular basis. The difference between then and now is that then you were probably able to turn off your skepticism and push through until you were successful. The same process in involved in business. Sometimes what seems impossible eventually begins to fall into place and we wonder why we had so many doubts in the first place. We must be willing to entertain what seems impossible and make an effort to shut down those defeatist thoughts that can keep us from even trying.

Give it a Try

Here is a suggestion. Identify several things that to varying degrees seem impossible or nearly impossible at the present time. Then take the least challenging and ask yourself what it would take to make it happen. This can allow you to experience small successes that will allow you to get unstuck from negative thoughts and embrace a belief you can meet challenges and free you to begin to think about how you can get the results you want.

think for results

It is important to your future success that you believe you can accomplish what you want and that means be willing to entertain what seems impossible and go for it.
