Tantalizing possibility of vision

September 18, 2017


I know people who absolutely will not entertain the idea of a good outcome.

Absolutely will not.

I get it. I do. When life’s handed you some pretty big challenges and you think the odds are not in your favor, it’s hard to think of possibility.

“Possibility: A thing that may happen”

Visualizing possibility can mean one of two things: visualize a good outcome or a bad outcome.

Suppose we think that either way, the outcome will be the same.

I can accept that.

It’s just that visualizing the positive outcome puts us in a better frame of mind. A hopeful frame of mind.

As I like to say, someone always defies the odds. Why shouldn’t it be you? or me?

Further, think of all the world-class athletes who credit visualization with improving their performance. They have harnessed the power of their mind to affect what their body does. 

I believe that one day it will be common to harness the power of the mind to help heal and even cure. One day. Meanwhile, there’s no harm in doing it now. 

Vision. Possibility. And yes, the grace of God. All related.

Something to think about today.

    I think that having positive thoughts can go a long way. I need to be better about thinking positive.

  2. Tracey says:

    This is such a great post. The power of visualization and positive thinking are HUGE! Love the message behind this. Thanks for sharing!

  3. I’ve been saying this to my bestie for years and you nailed it. I think we do the world good by our positivity. When I talked to people I keep in my the God is watching and my dad and try to do my best to please them.

  4. Having a glass half full attitude is so important. Even though things may seem difficult if you look for the good and persevere you can succeed.

  5. This is such a great post. People think that visualization will magically make things happen. It won’t. But what it will do is make it easier for your to achieve your positive outcome.

    I think visualizing a positive outcome is very powerful. Many people when handed a bad medical diagnosis are totally blind sighted. Of course it is natural if it out of the blue but many become paralyzed into action and a bit of positive visualization could really help action and ownership of their condition.

  7. A clear vision of what you want to accomplish is the only way to achieve your goals. It isn’t magic, but it is the perfect way to get yourself in the right headspace.

      What an absolutely fantastic post…I am starting a new venture and while I have only just begun I occasionally hear my inner critic…..I am also waiting for a cleaning service to come and shampoo my rugs today….they keep saying shortly as I look at my watch and see the time is 1:10…..I tend to get very impatient and want things on my time…..when they don’t I automatically think negative…..this post really made me smile …… I now will have lunch, stay calm….and think positive thoughts…..while time may be going way too fast..it can also be our best friend when used wisely….I am going to share this post on my site….maybe there was a reason the carpet cleaner is late afterall…..

    I love this message of positivity for a Monday. I always think that if something doesn’t happen the way we expect it to, then it really isn’t meant to be for us. I always think that it’s not really the path we were meant to take and that every little thing that happens to and for us is all part of a web God’s got planned for us.

  9. I definitely believe in the healing power of the mind, and I always try to think positive and look at the bright side. Of course, there are some days (and current events) that are harder than others.

  10. Renee says:

    I’ve been using the power of visualization for quite sometime…it is often hard to keep doing it when you are going through difficult times…and that is when you need it the most…maybe my not doing it is causing the difficult times to be worse…thought for the day…

  11. Pam Wattenbarger says:

    I have a hard time envisioning positive outcomes sometimes. I need to work better on that.

  12. Liz Mays says:

    I do think it can be hard to visualize positive outcomes is you have no experience or practice doing so.A little support can probably make it easier too.

  13. Thinking positively can definitely help you in many ways. It can help you health wise and productivity wise as well. Great post!

  14. Jennifer says:

    I am a huge proponent for having a positive vision of your goals, of your plans and even about what’s going on right now. But I get it when people don’t. It’s almost like a superstition for them, if they think positive they’ll be disappointed, so they’ll think negative and be happily surprised.

  15. I’ve always been a big believer in visualization. It’s worked for me many times.Sometimes i forget to use it so thanks for the reminder.

  16. Ellen Dolgen says:

    I feel better when I visualize the positive. Like you said, “It’s just that visualizing the positive outcome puts us in a better frame of mind. A hopeful frame of mind.”

  17. Another good reminder for everyone. Why think of a bad outcome when you can go ahead and think of one that will help you produce better results. It’s the better choice!

  18. Mitch says:

    I agree. For example, I am on Facebook a lot and many folks think m life is sunshine and roses. It is not, just like every other married with child family in America, it is all stress and hard work. But I am always very positive on FB, where I post a lot, and one reason is because I want to chose to dwell on the positive, not the negative! My cup is half full, never half empty!

  19. Felicia says:

    Positive thoughts definitely help bring about a better mood. However, I believe in the healing power of my Lord and Savior. He is the ultimate healer.

  20. Crystal says:

    Your frame of mind certainly makes a difference. I know so many people that just seem to have good luck. Perhaps their positive outlook spins situations that could be negative.

  21. This is a great way to start my week. I’ve always wanted possibility. Such a great way to stay positive,

  22. Kiwi says:

    I feel I am a great manifestor and its only because I keep positive thinking. Its all about curating your energy and keeping it in a positive collection.

  23. Czjai says:

    A great reminder of the power of positivity. I constantly remind myself to think happy thoughts, and always see the good in every situation no matter how awful it could be. 🙂

  24. brianne says:

    I always try to have positive thoughts and believe that better things will come. I reuse to let negativity in.

  25. Kelly Reci says:

    I think, I am a good manifestor because I always keep myself positive in everything I do. Thanks for sharing this article.

  26. Sarah says:

    Love this post, I always try to remain positive. Visualizing is an amazing tool.

  27. Linda Hobden says:

    I’m all for positive thinking! ????

  28. Shell says:

    I totally agree with you on visualizing a positive outcome!!! I live my life in a positive outlook for just about everything and it’s really tough when someone close to me is a “Debbie downer” always looking for the negative…

  29. Dogvills says:

    I always believed that when we pray, when we ask for blessings, we must believe that we have received it. God may not always give us what we want, but he gives us something better. I love this post, Carol. Have a blessed day!

  30. I gave a testimony on Sunday of my spiritual journey and just how I have grown over the years, and one thing that came to mind is that I defied the odds. Just be always ready to step out in faith

    Great post. I really like to have positive thoughts. Visualizing is such a great idea.
