The great boxer, Muhammad Ali, had a good handle on the impossible. He fought his way through his impossibilites and became the heavyweight champion of the world. For him, impossiblity was a dare. It was a challenge that he faced, dominated, and defeated. Muhammad Ali understood impossibility better than most, and he defined it in a way that anyone can understand.
“Impossible is just a big 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 not a declaration. It's a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.”
It turns out that the impossible is not always impossible.
Impossible dares you to live your dreams. It's a test of whether you are willing to do whatever it takes to make your dreams come true.
Everything in your life fits into two columns.
One column is labeled possible, and the other is labeled impossible.
Your job is to move everything over to the possible column.
With God, all things are possible. Impossible doesn't exist in God's universe, and it shouldn't exist in yours. Impossible is not in God's vocabulary, and it shouldn't be in yours.
Jesus did not believe in impossible and neither should you.
On more than one occasion, Jesus said, "All things are possible", and "nothing is impossible." Jesus said it both ways to make it clear that everything is possible when you believe.
Jesus meant it when he said that all things are possible. He wasn't trying to frustrate you by encouraging you to pursue impossible dreams. He was telling you to get in agreement with God so that all things will be possible in your life.
Everything is possible isn't a pipedream. It's the way God made things work.
It is time to take the impossible dare and do those things that you used to think were impossible.
IMPOSSIBLE IS A LIE.
IMPOSSIBLE IS A DARE.
It's time to take the dare and turn your impossibilities into your dreams.
For my entire life, I have been moving things from the impossible column over to the possible column.
Half way through university, I looked impossibility in the eye and changed my major to premed. I navigated the seas of impossibility for two years before I was accepted into medical school, and I moved medical school into the possibility column.
For four years of hard study, I climbed what seemed like an impossible mountain of anatomy, physiology, and clinical medicine until I became a doctor.
For four more years, I climbed a mountain of ophthalmic knowledge to beome a board certified eye surgeon with a sub-specialty in retina and vitreous surgery.
When I was run over by the Mac Truck of Life and nearly died in a car accident, I slogged for months though the Dismal Swamp of Discouragement, but I never stopped looking impossiblity in the eye, and I never surrendered to despair.
When I decided to sail around the world on my catamaran with my family, I sailed on the Seas of Impossibility for eleven years until the circumnavigation was complete.
For ten years I took the impossible dare as I wrote books on positive thinking and positive spirituality.
For the rest of my life, my Impossible Dare is to make the Positive Thinking Network the home of positive thinking on the world wide web. It's the premier place on internet that people come from all nations to learn about positive thinking. The Positive Thinking Network shows them how to have a positive mind and a positive life. My websites teach people how to conquer depression and how to install a Positive Operating System into their minds. People learn "Maximum Strength Positive Thinking", and they fill their minds with Positive Power Graphics. They listen to positive podcasts that change the way they think and feel. The Positive Thinking Network continues to look impossiblity in the eye as it changes the world.
I am well acquainted with impossibility. It has been my constant traveling companion for more than six decades.
Here are a few highlights of things that I have moved from the impossible column over to the possible one.
How about a sailing trip around the world? Maxing Out.com
How about sailing through Pirate Alley between Yemen and Somalia and up the Red Sea? Red Sea Chronicles
How about a driving trip around the world in Land Rover Defenders? Maxing Out Expeditions

How about creating a social network that links positive thinkers around the world? Positive Human Network
How about giving swimming lessons in God's Ocean of Love? Positive Thinking Fish
How about teaching people to say good-bye to depression and hello to a positive mind? Zero Tolerance To Negative Thinking
The impossible dare is all about living your dreams.
The impossible dare is what makes your dreams possible.
It's time to take the impossible dare. Your life will never be the same.

|Zero Tolerance To Negative Thinking - Overcoming depression is hard, perhaps the hardest thing you will ever do. But if you want to have a mind free from depression, nobody can stop you. Your emotions are a reflection of your thoughts. When you change your thoughts, your emotions automatically follow. You don't have to battle the negative and twisted emotions echoing in your mind. Instead you need to learn how to change the way you think, and your emotions will naturally take care of themselves. The challenge you face in depression is to change the way you think. If you want to change the way you think and feel, you are going to have to change your inner dialogue. You are going to have to talk to your mind in a different manner. A persistently positive focus creates a consistently positive mind. The battle for a positive mind is fought on the battlefield of focus. In order to break the back of depression, you will have to learn how to persistently and consistently control your mental focus.

There is no limit to how good my life can become when I open my heart and mind to the power of His love. God loves and accepts me the way I am, but He loves me to much to let me stay that way.

|Positive Self-Talk Yellow Book - Many people believe change is impossible. Most of the time they are confusing personality with personal behavior. The basic human personality is relatively constant over time, but human behavior can and does change. Personal change happens when people change the way they think. I have numerous patients formerly addicted to meth, cocaine, heroine, and alcohol, who escaped their addictions without ever going to rehab for treatment. They simply arrived at a point in their life where they no longer wanted to be prisoners of their addictions. They had experienced enough misery to last ten lifetimes, and they said no more. They changed their belief about who they are and what they can do with their life, and they became a different person who was chemical free. I am grateful to those patients, because they proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that people in the worst circumstances can and do change. Because of them, I am committed to helping people change their lives one belief at a time using positve self-talk. Positive Self-Talk Yellow Book is now available in ebook format at Amazon, iTunes, Kobo and Barnes and Noble.|
|Positive Self-Talk Gold Book - Mark Twain wrote, “Life does not consist mainly, or even largely, of facts or happenings. It consists mainly of the storm of thoughts that is forever blowing though one’s head.” Mark Twain was right. Life consists mainly of the storm of thoughts that blow through your mind. The events of life can be trivial, tragic, and even monumental in nature, but the events themselves have little power. It’s the storm of thoughts about those events that controls our lives. Surviving the storm of thoughts is how we spend most of our time. No matter what we do, the storm still blows, and to a significant degree shapes our lives. Surviving the storm is something we do every day all day long. An entourage of thoughts accompanies each event in our lives. Those thoughts can be positive, negative, or most likely, something in between. Those thoughts are the battleground where we come to our agreement with life. Those thoughts define who we are and what we can do. You need to learn how to control the storm of thoughts blowing through your mind. Positive Self-Talk Gold Book is now available in ebook format at Amazon, iTunes, Kobo and Barnes and Noble.|
|Positive Self-Talk Silver Book - You can change who you are by changing what you say when you talk to your mind. Just be sure you are speaking a language your mind understands. Your brain speaks to you in its own language, and if you speak to it in the same way, it immediately responds in a powerful fashion. That’s why change proceeds most rapidly when you talk to yourself using the language of the mind. If you don’t speak the language of the mind, you may as well stop talking until you learn it. The three most powerful components of the language of the mind are images, sounds, and emotions. When my brain wants to get my attention, it does not send a text or an email. It blows me away with sights, sounds, and emotions. If you want to get your brain’s attention, you need to do the same thing. Send a message full of sights, sounds, and emotions. Start speaking the language that your mind understands. Positive Self-Talk Silver Book is now available in ebook format at Amazon, iTunes, Kobo and Barnes and Noble.|
|Positive Self-Talk Red Book - A persistently positive focus creates a consistently positive mind. The same is true of your self-talk. It must be persistent, positive, and specific to have maximum impact. Lack of persistentce has laid more dreams to rest in the cemetery of failure than any other cause. There is zero chance that you will succeed on your first attempt. If your dreams are great, You will fail again and again on your way to the top. Before you can be great, you have to be good. Before you can be good, you have to be bad. Before you can be bad, you have to try. Millions of people stop at try. Thousands get stuck at bad. Hundreds quit at good. A few go all the way to great. If you don't have persistence, you willl never make the trip from try to bad to good to great. Positive Self-Talk Red Book helps you develop a persistently positive focus so that you can develop a consistently positive mind. More than one-hundred Power Graphics contain powerful thoughts that you need to have in your mind. Positive Self-Talk Red Book is now available at Amazon, iTunes, Kobo and Barnes and Noble.|
|Positive Self-Talk Purple Book - Living small serves no great purpose. Living as if you are a great person is a powerful idea that changes lives, and those who take it seriously change their world. Living as if you are great means you live as if your dreams are possible and work each day to make them happen. You act as if you cannot fail. In order to live as if you are great, you have to think the way great people think, talk the way great people talk, and act the way great people act. Great people think, talk, and act their dreams into existence. If you ever become great, it will be because you think great thoughts, repeat great self-talk, have great expectations, and act as if you cannot fail. Some people wrongly believe that change is impossible. Leopards don't change their spots, and zebra stripes are forever. But people are different. People change their stars. They change their stripes, and their spots disappear in an instant of time. That instant happens the moment they develop positive expectations and believe they have the power to change. Positive self-talk and positive expectations can take you anywhere you want to go. Positive Self-Talk Purple Book is now available in ebook format at Amazon, iTunes, Kobo and Barnes and Noble.|

Negativity is a powerful tool for destroying a life. When you say no, your life gets smaller. Opportunities recede further into the distance. Extinguish negativity when it first appears. Sniff it out when it is small, and snuff it out while it is weak.
You don't get what you want in life. You get what you expect. It doesn't matter what other people think. It's your expectations that count.
As you believe, so shall it be done unto you.
Although your thoughts control your emotions, it's your emotions that rule your world. You can't change your emotions directly, but you can change them indirectly by changing the way you think. Emotions are dyed the color of your thoughts.
Positive thinking works because it is the natural software for your mind. Positive Thinking truly is the right type of thinking. It's more than a good idea. It's the way God designed your mind to work.
|Positive Thinking Seminar||Fighting Depression||Positive Thinking Podcasts||Positive Thinking Psychology|

The challenge you face in depression is to change the way you think. The battle against depression is fought on the battlefield of focus. You must not let depression choose the focus of your mind. If you want to win the battle, you must focus your mind on positive things.
More than one-hundred positive thinking podcasts from Dr. Dave will give you a new way of looking at yourself and at your world. A few minutes and a couple of clicks of the mouse can make a big difference in your life. Your mind is waiting to hear from you.
Positive Thinking Psychology is simply thinking the way God thinks. It's the way God intends for us to think and feel. It's getting in agreement with God about who we are and what we can do with our lives.
