We use the word “impossible” very often. We do not give much thought to it before using it. Whenever we use it we limit ourselves and our potentials. Here are some of good quotes to think about and remember….



It is not a lucky word, this name 'impossible'; no good comes of those who have it so often in their mouths."

- Thomas Carlyle


The future belongs to those who see possibilities before they become obvious." - Samuel Johnson


Impossible is a word to be found only in the dictionary of fools."

- Napoleon Bonaparte


"Scientists have proven that it's impossible to long-jump 30 feet, but I don't listen to that kind of talk. Thoughts like that have a way of sinking into your feet."

- Carl Lewis -----

We know what we are, but know not what we may be."

- William Shakespeare


Listen to the MUSTN'TS, child,
Listen to the DON'TS,
Listen to the SHOULDN'TS,
Listen to the NEVER HAVES
Then listen close to me—
Anything can happen, child
ANYTHING can be.

- Shel Silverstein


Our aspirations are our possibilities."

- Robert Browning


Indeed, what is there that does not appear marvelous when it comes to our knowledge for the first time? How many things, too, are looked upon as quite impossible until they have been actually effected?"

- Pliny the Elder


"The only way to discover the limits of the possible is to go beyond them into the impossible."

- Arthur C. Clarke's Second Law


It is our duty as human beings to proceed as though the limits of our capabilities do not exist."

- Teilhard de Chardin


"You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.
You must do the thing which you think you cannot do."

- Eleanor Roosevelt


"To become truly immortal, a work of art must escape all human limits: logic and common sense will only interfere. But once these barriers are broken, it will enter the realms of childhood visions and dreams."

- Giorgio de Chirico


Alice laughed: "There's no use trying," she said; "one can't believe impossible things."

"I daresay you haven't had much practice," said the Queen.

"When I was younger, I always did it for half an hour a day.
Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast."

- Alice in Wonderland


"Things are only impossible until they're not."

- Jean-Luc Picard


"Argue for your limitations, and sure enough, they're yours. Do you think, if you say the word "impossible" enough times, that difficult things will suddenly become easier for you?"

- Richard Bach


Despise no man and consider nothing impossible,
for there is no man who does not have his hour
and there is no thing that does not have its place."

- The Talmud


"When you say that something is impossible, you have made it impossible."

- Bruce Lee

Visualization is the way

Learn Mind’s Secrets – 5

Visualization is the way

Though we are not consciously aware of it, we live in an immense quantum sea of vibrating energy that is ever responsive to how and what we think. Our thoughts are forever trying to express themselves in our lives. Our thoughts are creative forces, and the sooner we realize this, the sooner we can begin designing our lives with clarity and purpose. As already explained what we focus on, we attract. Visualization is a very valuable technique that helps us to focus, attract and actualize our wishes.

Visualization is simply mental rehearsal. We create images in our minds of our having or doing whatever it is we want. In our mind we are constantly running a mental movie of what we wish to achieve. We repeat these images over and over again.

Visualization, where one mentally rehearses the ideal performance in his mind over and over before the actual event, should be a tool in the success arsenal of every peak performer. In 1954, Roger Bannister did what many people thought no human could ever do. He broke the four minute-a mile barrier. When asked how he did this, he replied that he simply ran the perfect race over and over on the movie screen of his mind before he ran it in reality. Tennis ace Andre Agassi is a master at the art of visualization as is golf legend Jack Nicklaus, soccer superstar Pele and Olympic gold medalist Bruce Jenner.

“It’s all in the mind,” says Arnold Schwarzenegger, who is five-time winner of the Mr. Universe title, a successful real estate tycoon, movie star, and governor of California. “The mind is really so incredible. Before I won my first Mr. Universe title, I walked around the tournament like I owned it. I had won it so many times in my mind, the title was already mine. Then when I moved on to the movies I used the same technique. I visualized daily being a successful actor and earning big money.”

What worked for Arnold Schwarzenegger, Andre Agassi and other legends will work for every one of us. It’s not magic and it doesn’t happen overnight, but if we persist in our vision, we will achieve it.

Carl Simonton, a radiological oncologist, who used relaxation techniques and mental imagery to augment the chemotherapy, radiation, the regular medical treatment that people were receiving. A typical example of some of the imagery, for instance -- one woman with lung cancer would imagine herself going into her lung with a vacuum cleaner and vacuuming away the diseased tissue, and then coming in with a medicated spray. A fourteen-year-old boy with terminal leukemia went into his bloodstream dressed like the Lone Ranger, all in white, and every time he saw a leukocyte he'd pull out his six shooters and kill the leukocyte and haul away the dead leukocytes. He applied this technique of mental imagery or visualization with terminal patients. After five years, twenty-six percent of his patients were still alive.

How did these miracles happen? Here is an important truth we must understand. The subconscious mind cannot distinguish between what is real and what is imagined. Our subconscious will act upon the images we create within, regardless of whether those images reflect our current reality or not. If our subconscious mind sees us doing something successfully, then it retains a positive memory and will in turn give us ideas on how to make that happen.

Now let us see how to practice visualization in simple terms. The first step is just to relax our body, relax our mind, and let ourselves drop into a quieter, deeper level of consciousness, which puts us more in touch with our intuitive or creative self. Meditation techniques will help us excellently to go to our deeper consciousness. After that, the basic technique of visualization is to create an experience within ourselves of whatever it is that we want. That can be an external thing or an internal thing. In other words, we could visualize or imagine ourselves in our new house, or our new job. Or we could simply visualize or imagine ourselves feeling self confident, or feeling very creative, or learning how to express our feelings more directly, or anything that's important to us.

We should make the picture clear and beautiful. We should not be afraid. We must make it grand. We should remember that no limitation can be placed upon us. We are not limited as to anything. We should construct it in our imagination as imagination is what fuels the power of visualization. Clearness and accuracy are obtained only by repeatedly having the image in mind. Each repeated action renders the image more clear and accurate than the preceding, and in proportion to the clearness and accuracy of the image will the outward manifestation be. It will have to be clearly in our mind clearly before it will ever appear anywhere else. We must hold it firmly in the mind and we will gradually and constantly bring the thing nearer to us.

The key to remember when visualizing is to always visualize that we already have the thing we want. This is a mental trick. We don’t hope that we will achieve it, or build confidence that some day it will happen. No, with the visualization technique we “live and feel it” as if it is happening to us now.

When we start to visualize, we simply open up our own horizons, so that we start to notice opportunities that we wouldn't even have thought of before, and we seem to create an open energy field that starts to bring things in to us.

Many people believe that you should have someone externally appoint you to do anything. But Kent Sayre says that you can easily appoint yourself to get the results you want. According to him the following message is literally priceless if you truly understand it and apply it to your life. Read the following passage and think over it. Don’t wait for any external authority to appoint you to do great things. Designate yourself. Begin your journey to greatness….



The more things we have in our control, the more empowered we are. And typically, we find ourselves more fulfilled too. So let's begin to control more things in our lives. And one of those is the notion of being certified, degreed, appointed, etc. by external sources. Sure, we need appointment for some things. I like my doctor to have passed exams and be board certified before he operates on me. I like my airplane pilots to have licenses before flying me around. 

However, we often are conditioned to live in the junk trance that says we have to be externally appointed, certified, or given some recognition before we can do something. This is NOT true. Think about Edison, the great inventor. He didn't get an inventor's certificate and then go on to become the world's greatest inventor. He just did it. 

Think about Bill Gates. He didn't hang out in school waiting to get a degree saying he was an expert in computers before starting his company. He dropped out of college, went for it in a major way, and now is the richest man around. Who knows if opportunity had slipped him by if he had stayed in school, waiting to be externally appointed as an expert? 

Think about Michael Jordan who is arguably the best basketball player ever. He didn't wait for others to externally designate him as a great basketball player and then go out and allow his greatness to come out. Nonsense. He declared in his mind (e.g., self-appointed) that he was going to be great and worked hard to unleash his greatness within. It was up to him. Remember, Jordan got cut in the 8th grade from his basketball team. Had he bought into the idea of an external personal judging his worthiness, he probably would've given up and the world would have lost out on the best basketball player ever. He didn't buy into that junk hypnosis of someone else deciding, dictating his fate for him.

My point is that to do something, you don't have to wait on someone else to certify you, appoint you, give you a degree, etc. Designate yourself. Here's what I'm going to do for you. This is the LAST certification you will ever need. I, Kent Sayre, for you having read this message, am now certifying you as a master at SELF-APPOINTMENT. For those who are curious, who certified me to certify others to self-appoint themselves? I appointed myself, of course! You no longer need anyone's permission to go for it. And when you're doing all sorts of great things, showing the true greatness within yourself, some people might ask, "Hey, what's gotten into you? Who gave you the right to do all this great stuff?" And when they do, say, "I did."
