Second Way To Keep The Positive Principle Going: Take a New Look at That Word “Impossible”
- Cut the “im” out of impossible, leaving that dynamic word standing out free and clear—possible.
- Do all you can about a tough situation; then let go and let God.
- Never use the word “impossible” seriously again. Toss it into the verbal wastebasket.
- Practice the positive principle—the principle of the possible. “If ye have faith … nothing shall be impossible unto you.”
- Store up a body of indomitable faith sufficient to draw upon in crisis to sustain you.
- Whatever is proper to a human being may be considered to be attainable by him.
- Become a specialist in doing the “wholly impossible,” the things that “can’t” be done.
- A new, straight look at that word “impossible” will make it possible always to keep your motivation going.
