It Could Happen
Many people like to use the phrase, "That
could never happen." I, however, don't like to limit others
or myself by thinking in such limited ways. Life is mysterious
and many things can happen, even the most impossible. Instead
of thinking in terms of never, it seems more logical to think
in terms of "It could happen."
When I made my list of "100 Things I Want
to do Before I Die," I put two things on the list that
seemed pretty farfetched. One was to have my picture on a US
postage stamp (without being dead) and the other one was to
meet the Queen. I had shared my list with several people and
most picked those two items out to tell me they would never
happen. Well, about a month ago my picture did indeed appear
on a real US postage stamp. True, I created and paid for the
stamps but, nonetheless, my picture now appears on real stamps
that I can use. This week I am off to California to meet the
Queen, the E-zine Queen as it were, but still a queen. With
this one I learned to be very specific since what I meant when
I wrote this on my list was I wanted to meet the Queen of England.
I have since updated my list.
The moral of the story is that it could happen.
Don't limit your dreams and goals. You never know what is possible
until you try. Also, keep in mind that you don't have to know
the "how it will happen." Your job is to know the
"What" and to be very clear about it. When you are
creating your dreams and goals, be very specific, add as much
detail as possible and then get busy visualizing and realizing
Get in the practice of saying "It could happen"
because indeed it could. When others tell you that it could
never happen put your figures in your ears and chant "I
can't hear you." You could also sing La La La La for effect
if you like, or you could simply smile, say nothing and look
forward to the day when you can say, "I told you it could
