I have spoken of Possibility Thinking for many years. Simply to set the stage for Creative Poise, here is a brief explanation.
Possibility Thinkers resemble the hummingbird that looks for and find honey, often in the most unlikely and unthinkable places. They perceptively probe every problem, proposal, and challenge to discover and disclose the positive opportunities pregnant in almost every human situation. Here is the motto of Possibility Thinkers:
Now let us couple the Possibility Thinker with Creative Poise. Keep a strong possibility posture as you confront your problem with creative poise. Use Possibility Thinking to do the following:
If you live near the ocean, watch the waves roll in. You will see a timid swimmer who, spotting a great wave rising, panics, turns, and runs, only to overcome by the rushing mountain of water. Now watch the surfer. They look for and see the savage wave swelling. They are poised with a surfboard in hand and when it reaches its full crest, they mount the liquid mountain and are lifted high and carried far!
Become a Possibility Thinker and use Creative Poise to face your problems, and you will find a new way of viewing the challenge!
Until next month,
