becoming a possibilitarian

Feb 18, 2008 | Entrepreneurship, Life in Progress

“Become a possibilitarian” Dr. Norman Vincent Peale

i am becoming a possibilitarian. how about you? do you see the bright light of your life’s horizon (even on the average days)? do you feel its warmth (even when you’re struggling)? have you begun to touch the surface of all that is possible for your life? does it give you goosebumps to think about it (i hope it does)? if so, then you’re a possibilitarian, too. it’s the best feeling in the world, this thinking of what is possible. it’s energy. it’s passion. it’s dreaming big, and taking small steps. it’s the oommph of our everyday lives.

for the past two days, i have been feeling like my inner possibilitarian has taken a huge leap out of my heart and into Real. good things are coming. i can’t wait to share.

how about you? what possibilities are speaking to you today? whether they’re a whisper, or a scream, i’d love to know: what is possible for you? write it down. share it. give it a voice.

Sending much love,

    Thanks so much for your vote of confidence and support— it means the world to me! And oh yes, it is almost scary once you get the hang of bringing dreams into reality– can’t wait to read about all your latest good news to share!

    Thank you for that! I DO believe int he possibility of it all….it does get difficult to see through all of my insecurity at times, but i know that good things are ahead. I am open to them, so they will come…and can’t wait to hear more good news from you! Hugs.

    When I was eight I was sure everything could be possible..;and it was…so, I just have to remember the confidence I had when I was a child.

    a possibilitarian? isn’t that the same as an optimist? anyhow, whatever you call it, it is good to be reminded. and it sounds sooo much fancier that optimist.

    ages ago you talked about imposter syndrome, and it has stuck in my head. i have been thinking about it a lot. don’t you think someone who is very talented, who gets lots of credit for something that doesn’t feel like hard work to him/her, will easily suffer from it? if a lot of fuss is made of you when you feel like you did nothing to deserve it. don’t you think britney and heath ledger and many other young ‘overnight’ stars may suffer from it? that may explain a lot! anyway, just a thought.

    Hi Kelly! the dream of balancing my life as an Art-Mom (a new Mom to be exact)… and somehow, finally, I feel myself on the right path, even though I’m not sure exactly where it’s leading… but for now it feels right and happy and full of possibilities….I am going where I’m meant to be!

    WooHoo!! Thanks for this post! I’m crazy over the possibilities. Sometimes, I that it is arrogant of me. That I shouldn’t feel like I can do something more. I hate arrogance. But, I know that I’m not arrogrant . . . it’s that I’m sure that I am still an unfinished adult waiting to do something more with my life. I want to do something about it.

    Possibilitarian – oh i’ve got to write that down. I have entered a cloudy time on my path of possibilities, i want to be open to them all to find/pick the “perfect” one.

    i have work dreams, but i want to share my friendship/relationship dreams now for my new life after a 12-year primary relationship (2 years ended now, but still very much in transition) … it wasn’t only my partner who changed, but a whole community. i want many new people in my life … artist friends, travel friends, lovers (maybe?), people who want to be really honest, and laugh a lot.

    I love that word ~possibilitarian~

    i think i’ve emerged into a stage in my life in which the possibilitarian in me is emerging.

    in the last few months a new dream has emerged…to be a professional photographer…i’ve never believed in myself this much before! its incredible. i also have come to a place with this healing heart that i see and believe the possibilites of love ahead!

    thank you for this idea kelly rae. i know i will be jotting down possibilities in my journal all day!
