Opinions are not a true reflection of reality.

Last month I received the notebook pictured above as a gift. A friend gave it to me because the quote reminded her of me. Her gift was timely because presently I’m focused on living into possibility, expecting magic, and making miracles.

You have the power to shape reality. You can make life what you want it to be. It begins with your internal world. Are you pursuing dreams and goals based on opinion or belief? If you’re building from a place of opinion, you’re on shaky ground. If you are building from a place of belief, you’ve got a strong foundation.

Too often, opinions are counted as fact or reality. But opinions are often conclusions born out of incomplete information. Opinions change when new information is presented. As the opinion changes, so does the dream or goal. Even if the dream or goal doesn’t change. a change in opinion colors the perceived possibility of the dream or goal.

When you start from a place of absolute belief in possibility, you empower yourself to create reality, magic, and miracles.

Impossible things seem impossible because we choose to see them as such. Drop the “im” from an impossibility, and it becomes a possibility. As simple as it may seem, it really is that easy. We make it more difficult by focus on opinion rather than belief.

Notice that those who achieve great things do so because they focus on belief and possibility rather than on “reality” and impossibility. One example is Muhammad Ali. Here’s what he had to say about things being impossible:

Impossible is just a word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they’ve been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It’s an opinion. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.

Are you living in the world you’ve been given? Or would you rather explore the power you have to change it? Don’t settle for the reality and the world you’ve been given. Choose to explore your own power and ability to make the impossible possible. Live into possibilities that excite and inspire you.
