Impossible is Just a Word

Impossible is Just a Word

Everyone, at some point of his or her life, has dreamed of being somebody special, somebody big. Who hasn't fantasized about being the one who hits the game-winning homer? Who hasn't dreamed of being the homecoming queen? And how many times have we dreamed of being rich, or successful, or happy with our relationships?Often, we dream big dreams and have great aspirations. Unfortunately, our dreams remain just that – dreams. And our aspirations easily collect dust in our attic.

This is a sad turn of events in our life. Instead of experiencing exciting adventures in self-actualization, we get caught up in the humdrum of living from day-to-day just barely existing.

But you know what? Life could be so much better, if only we learned to aim higher.

The most common problem to setting goals is the word impossible. Most people get hung up thinking I can't do this. It's too hard. It's too impossible. No one can do this.

However, if everyone thought that, there would be no inventions, no innovations, and no breakthroughs in human accomplishment.

Remember that scientists were baffled when they took a look at the humble bumblebee. Theoretically, they said, it was impossible for the bumblebee to fly. Unfortunately for the bumble, bee no one has told it so. So fly it does.

On the other hand, some people suffer from dreaming totally outrageous dreams and not acting on them. The result? Broken dreams, and tattered aspirations.

If you limit yourself with self-doubt, and self-limiting assumptions, you will never be able to break past what you deem impossible. If you reach too far out into the sky without working towards your goal, you will find yourself clinging on to the impossible dream.

Try this exercise. Take a piece of paper and write down some goals in your life. Under one header, list down things ‘you know you can do’. Under another header, write the things ‘you might be able to do.’ And under one more, list the things that that are ‘impossible for you to do.’

Now look at all the headers strive every day to accomplish the goals that are under things ‘you know you can do’. Check them when you are able to accomplish them. As you slowly are able to check all of your goals under that heading, try accomplishing the goals under the other header-the one that reads ‘you might be able to do.’

As of the items you wrote under things I could do are accomplished, you can move the goals that are under things that are ‘impossible for you to do’ to the list of things ‘you might be able to do.’

As you iterate through this process, you will find out that the goals you thought were impossible become easier to accomplish. And the impossible begin to seem possible after all.

You see, the technique here is not to limit your imagination. It is to aim high, and start working towards that goal little by little. However, it also is unwise to set a goal that is truly unrealistic.

Those who just dream towards a goal without working hard end up disappointed and disillusioned.

On the other hand, if you told someone a hundred years ago that it was possible for man to be on the moon, they would laugh at you. If you had told them that you could send mail from here to the other side of the world in a few seconds, they would say you were out of your mind. But, through sheer desire and perseverance, these impossible dreams are now realities.

Thomas Edison once said that genius is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration. Nothing could be truer. For one to accomplish his or her dreams, there has to be had work and discipline. But take note that that 1% has to be a think-big dream, and not some easily accomplished one.

Ask any gym rat and he or she will tell you that there can be no gains unless you are put out of your comfort zone. Remember the saying, “No pain, no gain”? That is as true as it can be.

So dream on, friend! Don’t get caught up with your perceived limitations. Think big and work hard to attain those dreams. As you step up the ladder of progress, you will just about find out that the impossible has just become a little bit more possible.

101 Strange news you must read before you died

Do Yoda Proud: Meditation 101

Do Yoda Proud: Meditation 101

Meditation refers to a state where your body and mind are consciously relaxed and focused.
Practitioners of this art report increased awareness, focus, and concentration, as well as a
more positive outlook in life.

Meditation is most commonly associated with monks, mystics and other spiritual disciplines.
However, you don’t have to be a monk or mystic to enjoy its benefits. And you don’t even have
to be in a special place to practice it. You could even try it in your own living room!

Although there are many different approaches to meditation, the fundamental principles remain
the same. The most important among these principles is that of removing obstructive, negative,
and wandering thoughts and fantasies, and calming the mind with a deep sense of focus. This clears
the mind of debris and prepares it for a higher quality of activity.

The negative thoughts you have – those of noisy neighbors, bossy officemates, that parking ticket
you got, and unwanted spam– are said to contribute to the ‘polluting’ of the mind, and shutting
them out is allows for the ‘cleansing’ of the mind so that it may focus on deeper, more meaningful thoughts.

Some practitioners even shut out all sensory input – no sights, no sounds, and nothing to touch –
and try to detach themselves from the commotion around them. You may now focus on a deep, profound
thought if this is your goal. It may seem deafening at first, since we are all too accustomed to constantly
hearing and seeing things, but as you continue this exercise you will find yourself becoming more aware of
everything around you.

If you find the meditating positions you see on television threatening – those with impossibly arched
backs, and painful-looking contortions – you need not worry. The principle here is to be in a
comfortable position conducive to concentration. This may be while sitting cross-legged, standing,
lying down, and even walking.

If the position allows you to relax and focus, then that would be a good starting point.
While sitting or standing, the back should be straight, but not tense or tight. In other positions,
the only no-no is slouching and falling asleep.

Loose, comfortable clothes help a lot in the process since tight fitting clothes have a tendency to
choke you up and make you feel tense.

The place you perform meditation should have a soothing atmosphere. It may be in your living room,
or bedroom, or any place that you feel comfortable in. You might want an exercise mat if you plan
to take on the more challenging positions (if you feel more focused doing so, and if the contortionist
in you is screaming for release). You may want to have the place arranged so that it is soothing to your senses.

Silence helps most people relax and meditate, so you may want a quiet, isolated area far from the
ringing of the phone or the humming of the washing machine. Pleasing scents also help in that regard,
so stocking up on aromatic candles isn’t such a bad idea either.

The monks you see on television making those monotonous sounds are actually performing their mantra.
This, in simple terms, is a short creed, a simple sound which, for these practitioners, holds a mystic value.

You do not need to perform such; however, it would pay to note that focusing on repeated actions such
as breathing, and humming help the practitioner enter a higher state of consciousness.

The principle here is focus. You could also try focusing on a certain object or thought, or even,
while keeping your eyes open, focus on a single sight.

One sample routine would be to – while in a meditative state – silently name every part of you
body and focusing your consciousness on that part. While doing this you should be aware of any
tension on any part of your body. Mentally visualize releasing this tension here . It works wonders.

In all, meditation is a relatively risk-free practice and its benefits are well worth the effort
(or non-effort – remember we’re relaxing).

Studies have shown that meditation does bring about beneficial physiologic effects to the body.
And there has been a growing consensus in the medical community to further study the effects of such.
So in the near future, who knows, that mystical, esoteric thing we call meditation might become a science itself!

Lose Weight, Trim Inches And Lengthen Muscles With Yoga And Pilates
By Kelly Dailey
Have you been going to the gym running on the treadmill and lifting weights and now your body just seems to stay the same. Maybe that last 10 lbs just won’t come off. So you’ve been building muscle and conditioning your heart. Awesome! However, you would like to change the appearance of your body to show more muscle definition and rather than bulk up the muscle, create additional strength by lengthening your muscles. Now it’s time to change things up so you can take your fitness to the next level. That is trim off inches by changing your exercise routine.

So here we go…let’s surprise your body into the next level of fitness.

Practicing yoga and pilates are each a way to lengthen muscle and strengthen the core. Also, because of the mind body connection you will increase your focus and endurance. Both yoga and pilates give many benefits to both mind and body. After just a few classes you will see the difference in the length of your muscles. Your muscles will be long and leaner. You will achieve an increase in strength.

Yoga and pilates also will sensitize your appetite. Eat only a light snack of 250-300 calories 2 hours before class; and fully hydrate 1 hour before class. You want your stomach to be fairly empty so that you are able to breathe properly and maximize the core muscles. In other words you don’t want food or water to get in the way. Also, if possible wait about a ½ hour before eating after class so that your body can spend all of its energy recovering to maximize muscle building. Then go ahead and eat a light meal with carbs, protein and fruit/vegetables.

You are on your way to the beautiful mind and body that you deserve!

Next time we will discuss the difference between yoga and pilates.

Change exceeds all expectations.---
