Thought for the day 23rd of April 2011
“Become a possibilitarian. No matter how dark things seem to be or actually are, raise your sights and see possibilities – always see them, for they’re always there” by Norman Vincent Peale.
There are very few ‘possibilitarians’ in the world. However, it is full of ‘problematarians’. I believe you see that differences between these two groups are pretty clear. ‘Possibilitarians’ are people who see opportunities, cope with difficulties, entertain positive thoughts and do not give up when they fail. ‘Problematarians’ are those who mostly see problems, difficulties, are afraid to risk and are led by their negative attitudes.
Even though the biggest population of the world is ‘problematarians’, it is ‘possibilitarians’ that make inventions, cause changes, produce something valuable and give direction for the world. We all taste the sweet fruits that are direct results of positive thinking, determination and action of those who search for possibilities and see them even in the most hostile situations.
Pessimists see problems, disasters, absence of good conditions and do not try to go further and change the status quo. They simply do not believe that can make a difference. They are on the wrong ‘wave’. Tune yourself to the right ‘wave’. What is it? An attitude of positivity. Look at the world and your world through ‘positive spectacles’. And never take them off, for if you try to look at what happens around with your ‘natural’ eyes, most probably you will see the same picture that most people see.
When you change your spectacles you will see that opportunities are there, not only because you change spectacles, but because they are truly there. It simply your attitude allows or disallows you to see them. I hope you will dare to throw away your negative attitude and join the chosen elite of ‘possibilitarians’.
