How Do You Define Possible?

choice is possible

One’s personal definition of the word “possible” builds the impenetrable walls of the box of one’s limitations.  Once one creates his/her possibility box, one stuffs it with one’s knowledge, creativity, skills, hopes, dreams and judgments about what one thinks is possible.  When one’s box seems comfortably full, one starts rejecting new thoughts and challenges as unable to fit into one’s “possibility” definition. What one rejects one defines as “impossible.”

Is your life’s mission really impossible or is your definition of “possible” too small, narrow and/or incomplete?  Do you have enough evidence to convict something of truly being impossible?  Are you incorrectly defining too many hard, unlikely, difficult, challenging and long-term goals, dreams and hopes as impossible?

Is there possibly some more room in your possibility box? Is it possible that your possibility box doesn’t even exists in the real world?  Are you brave enough to put each possibility to the test? Have you allowed your limitations to define how you are living inside of your possibility box?

Is it possible to break free of your impossibilities by simply choosing to accept a broader, more long-term and open-ended definition of one word?  Possibly.

What is really possible?

How to be Content with Life

According to Pastor Richard Exley, “Contented people have at least five characteristics in common:

1) They are committed to a cause greater than themselves.

2) They have a servant’s heart.

3) They value relationships. They love people rather than things.

4) They give thanks for what they have rather than complaining about what they don’t have.

5) They celebrate the ordinary, finding joy in life’s little pleasures.

“People who want to get rich fall into temptation…But godliness with contentment
is great gain” (1 Timothy 6:9 and 6).

All I can say Pastor Exley is Amen Brother! Thank you for sharing this simple truth.

I read a free e-mail that Pastor Exley sends out daily called, “Richard Exley’s One Minute Devotion.”  Here’s a link to sign up to receive his posts.

Here are some directions in life’s journey:

“Don’t ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive, and go do that, because what the world needs is people who have come alive.” -Gil Bailie.

6 For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you…

2 Timothy 1:6 , New International Version (NIV)

Which of your heart’s desires are smouldering inside of you awaiting you to give them some air to fire them and you up?

Fire Up! or Fizzle Out! The choice is yours.
