Second Way To Keep The Positive Principle Going: Take a New Look at That Word “Impossible”

  1. Cut the “im” out of impossible, leaving that dynamic word standing out free and clear—possible.
  2. Do all you can about a tough situation; then let go and let God.
  3. Never use the word “impossible” seriously again. Toss it into the verbal wastebasket.
  4. Practice the positive principle—the principle of the possible. “If ye have faith … nothing shall be impossible unto you.”
  5. Store up a body of indomitable faith sufficient to draw upon in crisis to sustain you.
  6. Whatever is proper to a human being may be considered to be attainable by him.
  7. Become a specialist in doing the “wholly impossible,” the things that “can’t” be done.
  8. A new, straight look at that word “impossible” will make it possible always to keep your motivation going.
