Inner Growth Word of the Day: Impossible
Merriam-Webster Dictionary definition: (adj.) 1 a. incapable of being or of occurring. 1 b. felt to be incapable of being done, attained, or fulfilled.
Impossible in a sentence: Interestingly enough, what’s impossible to some is possible to others.
Impossible in action: Something’s impossible when you feel like nothing can be done to obtain or reach that something.
Impossible and inner growth: A look at the things that you deem impossible or even a look at what type of mindset you have, so are you inclined towards seeing things as impossible, helps you to understand your fears or obstacles, your thoughts and preset judgements on yourself and the likelihood or not of the unfolding of something specific. All this exploration brings to inner growth by creating awareness and the opportunity for you to face those “impossible” things that might just not be that impossible.
Impossible and inner growth action steps:
- In-depth self-exploration questions: How do I feel about the word impossible? What have I learned from things I found to be impossible? How does the “impossible mindset” affect me? Where do I stand today on the idea of what is possible versus what’s impossible? Do the people around me have an “impossible mindset”?
- List or word bubble: Make a list or word bubble with impossible at the center and then list or put around it all the other words that come to mind associated with it. From the list, pick three words that stand out the most in how they make you feel in relation to something being impossible and write about three events that come to mind with those words.
- Bring your awareness to your feelings about impossible and allow those emotions to run freely without thoughts or life events crossing your mind. After a couple or more minutes of mind silence, also allow thoughts to come in. Focus on one thought or event at a time and allow the feeling it brings about to share its message with you.
