Impossible is Just a Word

Impossible is Just a Word
Written by Craig Warren

Everyone, at some point of his or her life, has dreamed
of being somebody special, somebody big. Who hasn’t
fantasized about being the one who hits the game-winning
homer? Who hasn’t dreamed of being the homecoming queen?
And how many times have we dreamed of being rich, or
successful, or happy with our relationships?

Often, we dream big dreams and have great aspirations.
Unfortunately, our dreams remain just that dreams. And
our aspirations easily collect dust in our attic.

This is a sad turn of events in our life. Instead of
experiencing exciting adventures in self actualization,
we get caught up in the humdrum of living from day-to-day
just barely existing.

But you know what? Life could be so much better, if only
we learned to aim higher.

The most common problem to setting goals is the word
impossible. Most people get hung up thinking I can’t do
this. It’s too hard. It’s too impossible. No one can do

However, if everyone thought that, there would be no
inventions, no innovations and no breakthroughs in human

Remember that scientists were baffled when they took a
look at the humble bumblebee. Theoretically, they said,
it was impossible for the bumblebee to fly. Unfortunately
for the bumblebee, no one has told it so. So fly it does.

On the other hand, some people suffer from dreaming
totally outrageous dreams and not acting on them. The
result? Broken dreams and tattered aspirations.

If you limit yourself with self-doubt and self-limiting
assumptions, you will never be able to break past what
you deem impossible. If you reach to far out into the
sky without working towards your goal, you will find
yourself clinging on to the impossible dream.

Try this exercise. Take a piece of paper and write down
some goals in your life. Under one header, list down
things you know you can do. Under another header, write
the things you might be able to do. And under one more,
list the things that are impossible for you to do.

Now look at all the headers strive every day to
accomplish the goals that are under things you know you
can do. Check them when you are able to accomplish them.
As you slowly are able to check all of your goals under
that heading, try accomplishing the goals under the other
header, the one that reads you might be able to do.

As of the items you wrote under things I could do are
accomplished, you can move the goals that are under
things that are impossible for you to do to the list of
things you might be able to do.

As you iterate through this process, you will find out
that the goals you thought were impossible become easier
to accomplish. And the impossible begin to seem possible
after all.

You see, the technique here is not to limit your
imagination. It is to aim high and start working towards
that goal little by little. However, it also is unwise to
set a goal that is truly unrealistic.

Those who just dream towards a goal without working hard
end up disappointed and disillusioned.

On the other hand, if you told someone a hundred years
ago that it was possible for man to be on the moon, they
would laugh at you. If you had told them that you could
send mail from here to the other side of the world in a
few seconds, they would say you were out of your mind.
But, through sheer desire and perseverance, these
impossible dreams are now realities.

Thomas Edison once said that genius is 1% inspiration and
99% perspiration. Nothing could be truer. For one to
accomplish his or her dreams, there has to be had work
and discipline. But take note that 1% has to be a
think-big dream and not some easily accomplished one.

Ask any gym rat and he or she will tell you that there
can be no gains unless you are put out of your comfort
zone. Remember the saying, No pain, no gain? That is as
true as it can be.

So dream on, my friend! Don’t get caught up with your
perceived limitations. Think big and work hard to attain
those dreams. As you step up the ladder of progress, you
will just about find out that the impossible has just
become a little bit more possible.

What Innovation Can Do to Your Life

What Innovation Can Do to Your Life
Written by Craig Warren

It’s a talent that everyone has, yet they think they
don’t. The power of innovation. If you’ve ever marveled
at somebody’s creative prowess, guess what, you can
create and innovate too. It just takes time. Everyone is
born creative. The box of crayons in kindergarten were
not limited to those who possessed potential because the
truth is, everybody has potential.

You know how long it took to learn to ride a bike or
drive or to never commit the same mistake again? It’s the
same with innovation. It takes a bit of practice and a
lot of time before this mind function comes easily when
called. This article will teach you a few tips on how to
bring innovation into your life.

Don’t listen to what other people say. Follow the beat of
your own drum. Allowing for the input of other people
will only bring cacophony to the music you are trying to
make. If you have an original idea, don’t waste your time
and effort trying to make people understand. They won’t.
And the help you will probably get comes in the form of
negative feedback. If all those geniuses listened to their
peers, we would probably still be living in the middle

Spend time on it. I cannot stress that enough, although,
please do not mistake this tip to tell you to quit your
day job entirely. Do not. This involves some tricky time
management but with a little discipline you’ll be able to
squeeze both in.

Exercise, take a walk or run a mile or two. Send all those
endorphins coursing through your veins. Exercising
certainly clears and relaxes your mind and allows for
anything to pop up.

Record your dreams. Aren’t some of them just the craziest
things that your conscious mind would never have thought
of? If you’ve had these dreams before and I’m sure have,
this only shows you the untapped innovative power you
have lying within. So jot down those notes. Those dreams
may just create an innovative spark in you.

Find your own style. You can always tell a Van Gogh from
a Matisse. You’ll know Hemingway wrote something by the
choice of words on the paper. So it is the same with you.
People will appreciate your innovation more because it is
uniquely yours and that no one else would have thought of
what you were thinking. That will let people see how
valuable an asset you are.

Don’t hide behind nifty gadgets or tools. You don’t need
the most expensive set of paints to produce a
masterpiece. The same way with writing. You don’t need
some expensive fountain pen and really smooth paper for a
bestseller. In fact, J.K. Rowling wrote the first book of
the Harry Potter Series on bits of tissue. So what if
you’ve got an expensive SLR camera if you’re a crappy
photographer? Who cares if you’ve got a blinging laptop
if you can’t write at all? The artist actually reduces
the number of tools he has as he gets better at his
craft. He knows what works and what doesn’t.

Nothing will work without passion. What wakes you up in
the mornings? What keeps the flame burning? What is the
one thing that you’ll die if you don’t do? Sometimes
people with talent are overtaken by the people who want
it more. Think the hare and the tortoise. Ellen Degeneres
once said that if you’re not doing something that you
want to do, then you don’t really want to do it. And
that’s true. Sometimes you just want something so bad you
become a virtual unstoppable. And that is passion.
Passion will keep you going.

Don’t worry about inspiration. You can’t force it.
Inspiration hits when you least expect it to, for those
unpredictable yet inevitable moments you should prepare.
An idea could strike you on the subway, yet alas, you
poor unfortunate soul, you have no sheet of paper to
scribble down a thought that could change the world.
Avoid these disasters. Have a pen and paper within your
arm’s reach at all times.

I hope this article has helped you bring more innovation
into your life. Keep in mind that you’re doing these
things for your own satisfaction and not anybody else’s.
But soon enough they will notice and everything should
snowball from there.

The Key To A Better Life

The Key To A Better Life
Copyright © Craig Warren

Time management is basically about being focused. The
Pareto Principle also known as the ’80:20 Rule’ states
that 80% of efforts that are not time managed or unfocused
generates only 20% of the desired output. However, 80% of
the desired output can be generated using only 20% of a
well time managed effort. Although the ratio ’80:20′ is
only arbitrary, it is used to put emphasis on how much is
lost or how much can be gained with time management.

Some people view time management as a list of rules that
involves scheduling of appointments, goal settings,
thorough planning, creating things to do lists and
prioritizing. These are the core basics of time management
that should be understood to develop an efficient personal
time management skill. These basic skills can be fine
tuned further to include the finer points of each skill
that can give you that extra reserve to make the results
you desire.

But there is more skills involved in time management than
the core basics. Skills such as decision making, inherent
abilities such as emotional intelligence and critical
thinking are also essential to your personal growth.

Personal time management involves everything you do. No
matter how big and no matter how small, everything counts.
Each new knowledge you acquire, each new advice you
consider, each new skill you develop should be taken into

Having a balanced life-style should be the key result in
having personal time management. This is the main aspect
that many practitioners of personal time management fail
to grasp. Time management is about getting results, not
about being busy.

The six areas that personal time management seeks to
improve in anyone’s life are physical, intellectual,
social, career, emotional and spiritual.

The physical aspect involves having a healthy body, less
stress and fatigue.

The intellectual aspect involves learning and other
mental growth activities.

The social aspect involves developing personal or
intimate relations and being an active contributor to

The career aspect involves school and work.

The emotional aspect involves appropriate feelings and
desires and manifesting them.

The spiritual aspect involves a personal quest for

Thoroughly planning and having a set of things to do list
for each of the key areas may not be very practical, but
determining which area in your life is not being giving
enough attention is part of time management. Each area
creates the whole you, if you are ignoring one area then
you are ignoring an important part of yourself.

Personal time management should not be so daunting a task.
It’s a very sensible and reasonable approach in solving
problems big or small.

A great way of learning time management and improving
your personal life is to follow several basic activities.

One of them is to review your goals whether it be
immediate or long-term goals often.

A way to do this is to keep a list that is always
accessible to you.

Always determine which task is necessary or not necessary
in achieving your goals and which activities are helping
you maintain a balanced life style.

Each and everyone of us has a peek time and a time when
we slow down, these are our natural cycles. We should be
able to tell when to do the difficult tasks when we are
the sharpest.

Learning to say “No”. You actually see this advice often.
Heed it even if it involves saying the word to family or

Pat yourself at the back or just reward yourself in any
manner for an effective time management result.

Try and get the cooperation from people around you who
are actually benefiting from your efforts of time

Don’t procrastinate. Attend to necessary things

Have a positive attitude and set yourself up for success.
But be realistic in your approach in achieving your goals.

Have a record or journal of all your activities. This
will help you get things in their proper perspective.

These are the few steps you initially take in becoming a
well rounded individual.

As the say personal time management is the art and
science of building a better life.

From the moment you integrate into your life time
management skills, you have opened several options that
can provide a broad spectrum of solutions to your
personal growth. It also creates more doors for
opportunities to knock on.

How to Become an Ideal Leader

How to Become an Ideal Leader
Copyright © Craig Warren

When you are at work, do you get frustrated because things
don’t seem to be happening the way they’re supposed to be?
You see people milling around but nothing gets
accomplished. And in the daily hustle and bustle, do you
feel that your goals remain just that goals. Then maybe
its time for you to stand up and do something about it.

Most people are content just to stand around listening for
orders. And it isn’t unusual to adopt a follow-the-leader
mentality. But maybe, somewhere inside of you, you feel
the desire to make things happen to be the head, not the
tail. Then maybe leadership just suits you fine.

Some people believe that great leaders are made, not born.
Yes, it may be true that some people are born with natural
talents. However, without practice, without drive, without
enthusiasm and without experience, there can be no true
development in leadership.

You must also remember that good leaders are continually
working and studying to improve their natural skills.
This takes a commitment to constantly improve in whatever
endeavor a person chooses.

First of all, let’s define leadership. To be a leader, one
must be able to influence others to accomplish a goal or
an objective. He contributes to the organization and
cohesion of a group.

Contrary to what most people believe leadership is not
about power. It is not about harassing people or driving
them using fear. It is about encouraging others towards
the goal of the organization. It is putting everyone on
the same page and helping them see the big picture of the
organization. You must be a leader not a boss.

First of all, you have to get people to follow you. How is
this accomplished?

People follow others when they see a clear sense of purpose.
People will only follow you if they see that you know where
you are going. Remember that bumper sticker? The one that
says, don’t follow me, I’m lost too? The same holds true
for leadership. If you yourself do not know where you’re
headed to, chances are people will not follow you at all.

You yourself must know the vision of the organization.
Having a clear sense of hierarchy, knowing who the bosses
are, who to talk to, the organization’s goals and objectives
and how the organization works is the only way to show others
you know what you are doing.

Being a leader is not about what you make others do. It’s
about who you are, what you know and what you do. You are
a reflection of what you’re subordinates must be.

Studies have shown that one other bases of good leadership
is the trust and confidence your subordinates have of you.
If they trust you they will go through hell and high water
for you and for the organization.

Trust and confidence is built on good relationships,
trustworthiness and high ethics.

The way you deal with your people and the relationships you
build will lay the foundation for the strength of your group.
The stronger your relationship, the stronger their trust and
confidence is in your capabilities.

Once you have their trust and confidence, you may now proceed
to communicate the goals and objectives you are to undertake.

Communication is a very important key to good leadership.
Without this you can not be a good leader. The knowledge and
technical expertise you have must be clearly imparted to other

Also, you can not be a good leader and unless you have good
judgment. You must be able to assess situations, weigh the
pros and cons of any decision and actively seek out a

It is this judgment that your subordinates will come to rely
upon. Therefore, good decision-making is vital to the success
of your organization.

Leaders are not do-it-all heroes. You should not claim to
know everything and you should not rely upon your skills

You should recognize and take advantage of the skills and
talents your subordinates have. Only when you come to this
realization will you be able to work as one cohesive unit.

Remember being a leader takes a good deal of work and time.
It is not learned overnight. Remember also that it is not
about just you. It is about you and the people around you.

So, do you have the drive and the desire to serve required
of leaders? Do you have the desire to work cooperatively with
other people? Then start now. Take your stand and be leader

The Concept Of Positive Thinking

The Concept Of Positive Thinking
Copyright © Craig Warren

Everything in the world of form is preceded
by a thought. Thoughts are not in the world
of form, form is not in the world of thought.
But one actually precedes the other in all
cases. If one wishes to affect form, one
must work with cause, not effect. Thought
is cause, form is effect. And when we work
in the realm of thought, choosing a negative
one or a positive one will influence the

Simply put, we live in a world of cause
and effect, for every cause there is
an effect and every effect has to have
a cause. Everything that happens in this
world (form) is an effect, the cause
being thoughts. These thoughts affect
the whole universe. And each thought
once generated and sent out becomes
independent of the brain and mind
and will live upon its own energy
depending upon its intensity.

All of our feelings, beliefs and knowledge
are based on our internal thoughts, both
conscious and subconscious. We are in
control, whether we know it or not. We
can be positive or negative, enthusiastic
or dull, active or passive. These attitudes
are maintained by the inner conversations
we constantly have with ourselves, both
consciously and subconsciously.

Mystics have long-held that we do,
in fact, control our reality, not
just the little things in life, but
everything. We create our entire
world by the way we think. Thoughts
are the causes and conditions are
the effects. Our circumstances and
conditions are not dictated by the
world outside, it’s the world
inside us that creates the outside.
They have maintained that regardless
of our circumstances, each person has
the innate, Universe or God-given
ability to create or alter reality
to our choosing. This is done by using
the power of positive thinking. They say
that we are not here to suffer or to live
a life of misery but rather, each conflict
or problem that we confront is merely an
opportunity to express our higher selves,
to evolve and to alter the circumstances
to our liking.

These concepts on the power of the
positive thinking, once restricted
to the initiated few, came to light
in the so-called New Age. Voices
from people such as Ram Dass,
Deepak Chopra, Joel Goldsmith,
John Price, L. Ron Hubbard, Dr.
Hew Len and countless others
expressed the notion that reality
is of our own making and choosing,
regardless of appearances to the
contrary. The basic premise is that
our past conditioning should be
re-evaluated and that we should
consciously determine the way in
which we wish to live. We should
use the power of positive thinking
to create things (reality) which
are good for us and for others.


In today’s world, more and more
people speak about the power of
positive thinking. It is a concept
that has a very high view of human
nature and ability. Its advocates teach
that the human mind has the power to
turn wishes into reality through optimism.
In other words The Power Of Positive
thinking refers to the power of creating
thoughts, which create and focus energy
into reality. To bring into creation a
positive outcome, which you see as a
benefit to yourself or others.

Positive thinking includes:
1. Our innate capability to produce
desired outcomes with positive thoughts.
2. Having belief in possibilities even
when the facts seem to indicate otherwise.
3. Making creative choices.
4. Meeting problems head on.

Positive thinking is a mental attitude
that admits into the mind thoughts,
words and images that are conductive
to growth, expansion and success. It is
a mental attitude that expects good and
favorable results. A positive mind
anticipates happiness, joy, health and a
successful outcome of every situation and
action. Whatever the mind expects, it finds.
This is a powerful tool that everybody has,
but a lot of people are not aware of it.

The Art of Self Improvement

The Art of Self Improvement
Copyright © Craig Warren

There’s no doubt about it: Self Improvement is big
business. No matter where we look we seem to see
men attired in business suits and fancy haircuts.
Sporting dinky little ear-piece microphones, they
speak to us as though we were attending the annual
general meeting of their multi-national self-
development business which, I suppose, isn’t that
far from the truth. They speak to us in sound-bites;
I’m going show you how, you just need to follow my
plan: no thought required; just follow the plan.
Success and winning, they preach to the audience,
are a sure thing.

But is self-development a sure thing? If, like me,
you believe self-development is a life journey that
is never completed, you know that the only sure
thing is that the search for self-development is
far from being a sure thing. The journey will
entail more failures than successes, more loss than
gain and more self-doubt than we think we can endure.
The only way to improve ones self is to challenge
the habits and assumptions we have gathered along
the way. To go out on a limb with no guarantee of
finding what we want takes courage. No success plan
would contemplate such a course of action!

So, if we can’t get succor from the self-improvement
gurus, who can we turn to?

The answer, I believe, is to look to the people who
have always explored every single aspect of the
human condition. They did not always find the answer,
but they all had courage. They are of course, the
worlds artists.

How can a painting help us toward our goal of
self-improvement you might ask? Well, some
paintings help to bring serenity and a feeling
of inner peace. I feel this whenever I look at
an Impressionist painting, especially paintings
by Berthe Morisot. She was never recognized as
a great artist during her lifetime; she was
relegated to the category of “feminine” artists
because of her usual subject matter women,
children and domestic scenes. Her paintings are
intensely intimate. She is an example of someone
who never gave up on pursuing what she thought
was worth while despite being largely ignored.

Jackson Pollock instills different but equally
powerful feelings. I used to believe all modern
artists just throw a bit of paint on a canvas and
call it art. My preconceptions were swept away when
I was lucky enough to attend an exhibition devoted
to his work. His paintings were beautiful and
challenged the way I look at a painting. The search
for your inner self is all about challenging your
currently held notions.

Music is probably the easiest of the arts for us to
accept as an aid toward our search for self-development.
How often does a certain piece of music make us feel
happy, relaxed, romantic, hopeful, fulfilled? You name
it, music hits all the buttons. My favorite music is
anything by Beethoven. His music makes me feel all of
the aforementioned. He was a man who accepted nothing
less than perfection. He sort redemption through his
music. Ultimately, he didn’t find it and he spent much
of his life feeling alone. But his courage of conviction
made his life, and countless others, a better thing. His
last words were “Applaud, my friends, the comedy is over.

Perhaps our greatest inspiration comes from writers. They
have helped me, and millions of others, to find the inner
self. Life would be a much poorer experience without our
great writers. I wont name all the writers that have
inspired me; there are too many. But if there was one thing
I would urge you to do, it is to read. If you’re not sure who
to read then go to a library and ask! Tell the librarian what
it is that you want to experience, feel or learn when you read
a book. They’ll help you, don’t let shyness defeat you. If you
can’t get to a library then join a reading club on the internet.
The one thing I have found is that people, who love to read,
love to help others to read books.

So, forget about buying into those testosterone,
succeed-at-all-costs seminars, ebooks and DVDs. Go and
look at a painting or lie on the sofa and listen to music,
maybe dance wildly to it, cry with it, make love in time
to it or curl up and read a book that will take you where you
never thought possible.

You may not get to where you wished, but Art will accompany
you every single step of the way.

Your Self Esteem

Your Self Esteem
Copyright © Craig Warren

When you’re learning about something new, it’s easy to
feel overwhelmed by the sheer amount of relevant
information available. This informative article should
help you focus on the central points.

So how do you stay calm, composed and maintain
self-esteem in a tough environment? Here are some tips
you may to consider as a starter guide to

Imagine yourself as a Dart Board. Everything and
everyone else around you may become Dart Pins, at one
point or another. These dart pins will destroy your
self-esteem and pull you down in ways you wont even
remember. Don’t let them destroy you, or get the best
of you. So which dart pins should you avoid?

Dart Pin #1 : Negative Work Environment
Beware of dog eat dog theory where everyone else is
fighting just to get ahead. This is where
non-appreciative people usually thrive. No one will
appreciate your contributions even if you miss lunch
and dinner, and stay up late. Most of the time you
get to work too much without getting help from people
concerned. Stay out of this, it will ruin your
self-esteem. Competition is at stake anywhere. Be
healthy enough to compete, but in a healthy
competition that is.

Dart Pin #2: Other Peoples Behavior
Bulldozers, brown nosers, gossip-mongers, whiners,
backstabbers, snipers, people walking wounded,
controllers, naggers, complainers, exploders,
patronizers, bluffers all these kinds of people will
pose bad vibes for your self-esteem, as well as to
your self-improvement scheme.

Dart Pin #3: Changing Environment
You can’t be a green bug on a brown field. Changes
challenge our paradigms. It tests our flexibility,
adaptability and alters the way we think. Changes
will make life difficult for a while, it may cause
stress but it will help us find ways to improve our
selves. Change will be there forever, we must be
susceptible to it.

Truthfully, the only difference between you and Self
esteem experts is time. If you’ll invest a little more
time in reading, you’ll be that much nearer to expert
status when it comes to Self esteem.

Dart Pin #4: Past Experience
It’s okay to cry and say ouch! when we experience
pain. But don’t let pain transform itself into fear.
It might grab you by the tail and swing you around.
Treat each failure and mistake as a lesson.

Dart Pin #5: Negative World View
Look at what you’re looking at. Don’t wrap yourself
up with all the negativities of the world. In building
self-esteem, we must learn how to make the best out of
worst situations.

Dart Pin #6: Determination Theory
The way you are and your behavioral traits is said to
be a mixed end product of your inherited traits (genetics),
your upbringing (psychic), and your environmental
surroundings such as your spouse, the company, the economy
or your circle of friends. You have your own identity. If
your father is a failure, it doesn’t mean you have to be a
failure too. Learn from other people’s experience, so you’ll
never have to encounter the same mistakes.

Sometimes, you may want to wonder if some people are born
leaders or positive thinkers. NO. Being positive, and staying
positive is a choice. Building self-esteem and drawing lines
for self-improvement is a choice, not a rule or a talent.
God wouldn’t come down from heaven and tell you George, you
may now have the permission to build self-esteem and improve
your self.

In life, its hard to stay tough specially when things and
people around you keep pulling you down. When we get to the
battle field, we should choose the right luggage to bring
and armors to use, and pick those that are bullet proof.
Life’s options give us arrays of more options. Along the
battle, we will get hit and bruised. And wearing a bullet
proof armor ideally means self change. The kind of change
which comes from within. Voluntarily. Armor or Self Change
changes 3 things: our attitude, our behavior and our way
of thinking.

Building self-esteem will eventually lead to self-improvement
if we start to become responsible for who we are, what we have
and what we do. It’s like a flame that should gradually spread
like a brush fire from inside and out. When we develop
self-esteem, we take control of our mission, values and
discipline. Self esteem brings about self-improvement, true
assessment, and determination. So how do you start putting up
the building blocks of self-esteem? Be positive. Be contented
and happy. Be appreciative. Never miss an opportunity to
compliment. A positive way of living will help you build
self-esteem, your starter guide to self-improvement.

There’s a lot to understand about Self esteem. We were able
to provide you with some of the facts above, but there is
still plenty more to write about in subsequent articles.
