“To raise new questions, new possibilities, to regard old problems from a new angle, requires creative imagination and marks real advance in science.” Albert Einstein
What you believe yourself to be, do and have is what will be. Your thoughts have the power to either create or to hinder your possibilities in life. Open up your mind to your imagination and to your dreams to make them become your reality. Whatever you choose to conceive, believe or perceive will lead to just what is possible for you to go on to achieve in life.
Have you ever stopped to think about WHY you do what you do? Stopped to see just what is possible when you Focus on WHY? Have you? Do you focus on possibilities? Both your language and your thoughts are within your control and your responsibility. When you choose possibility, you stretch yourself out of your comfort zone.
“A thought, even a possibility, can shatter and transform us.”
Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche
New year equals new possibilities. You are limited only by yourself so once you master yourself, your possibilities are endless. Wake up the inner genius and discover your hidden treasures. Elizabeth Gilbert in Big Magic says that "The universe buries strange jewels within us all, and then stands back to see if we can find them. The hunt to uncover those jewels - that's creative living."
Have the courage and the confidence to live creatively, to open up and discover the world, to expand your network and to meet new people. Change your lens and your perspective to embrace new possibilities.
What’s stopping you? Is it fear? Self-sabotage? Self-doubt? Lack of confidence? Do you believe you are too old? Too young? Is it time, money or effort?

What legacy will you leave behind?
When you follow your passion and your purpose in life, you have the power to make it happen. Remember though that your thinking affects your actions.
“We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.” Albert Einstein
