Why “what’s possible” is far more important than “what is”

“Without leaps of imagination or dreaming, we lose the excitement of possibilities. Dreaming, after all is a form of planning.” ― Gloria Steinem We have a choice. We can place our attention on “what is” or we can dream of what can be. By placing our attention on new possibilities, we animate a completely different […]

‘Promise me that you’ll always remember that you’re braver than you believe, stronger than you seem and smarter than you think.’–Christopher Robin to Winnie the Pooh My naysayers (and they are legion) rarely attack my writing (well, a few accuse me of trying to be a standup comedian).

The problem is how to remain an artist once you grow up.”–Pablo Picasso In London last month, at the I Can Do It! conference, I conducted a reverse finishing school for adults. Here’s why.

Boldly claim your good. The universe is never reluctant to give.

Chris Michaels, a handsome and very wise Science of Mind minister, told a great story a few weeks ago.

Thank God it’s Monday

“The best way to predict the future is to create it.” Abraham Lincoln If you don’t like what’s happening in your life, stop giving it your undivided attention.
