If It Feels IMPOSSIBLE, Is It Hopeless Or Are We Not Seeing Where Opportunity May Be Hiding?

If a situation feels impossible, what might we do to see what seems invisible?

Sometimes, it may seem like that “stuck” sensation feels familiar when we try to set goals for ourselves that may feel hard to reach.

When we feel so close to our chosen path and something unpredictable stops us, what new direction might we want to take instead?

When we get stuck in non-moving traffic, it might seem like we’ll never get to the exit and reach our destination. We can probably say we’ve sat countless times on highways feeling like we’d be on that road forever.

Realistically, we eventually reach the exit ramp we’re looking for, right?

So, how might we want to experience the journey until we get to our destination?

If we could detour our thoughts as we move slowly toward where we want to be, how might this feel different?

It may feel uncomfortable to think about how we can discover the best path we want for success.

If we can choose different courses to map out where we want to go when we’re traveling, like using GPS, what tools might help us reach our other goals in less time?

Permitting ourselves to change directions to take a new road can turn out to be the path to success we’ve been looking for. If we don’t try, we may stay stuck in traffic.

“What we can or can’t do; what we consider POSSIBLE or IMPOSSIBLE is rarely a function of our true capability. It is more likely a function of our beliefs about who we are.” ‒ Anthony Robbins

The support and belief we may want to receive from others begins with the beliefs and care we provide to ourselves.

Let’s plan some “ME” time reinforcement for ourselves today so we can detour around any traffic that gets in our way.
