Big & Bold Mondays = 1/7 of Your Life

“Sometimes I have believed as many as six impossible things before breakfrast.”
                                                                                                -Lewis Caroll
Big, bold Mondays have been inspired by Lance at Uungle of Life. 1/7 of our lives are Mondays.
Each Monday I will post a photo, a quote or affirmation, and a question to inspire you to make the most of your day:

My six  things:
1) That our futures are bright.
2) I am making a difference in the world.
3) My blog is a success.
4) My creativity is blossoming.
5) Our economic times turn around quickly.
6) There is enough employment for everyone. 

If you believed in six impossible things before breakfast what would they be?

    Hi Tess,

    I love this exercise! Freedom to believe in the impossible – what could be more liberating?

    1. I am drop dead gorgeous, with a waistline Barnie would die for and clothes and hair that are always perfectly in place.

    2. My dozens of grandchildren clamour to sit on my lap, and my husband of 50 years gazes at me with adoring eyes, still completely in love.

    3. The business empire I’ve built runs on its own momentum, and I have no time to open all the cheques that are sent to me for amounts so huge I cannot remember them anymore.

    4. Mornings begin with coffee and the papers on the spacious, breezy patio with a view of the ocean on one side and forest on the other.

    5. Thousands of people attend every book launch, with long queues of people asking for autographed copies of the best-selling books I write which touch and change lives around the world.

    6. I am consciously living fully, every minute of every day.

    What a great way to live life as if all is possible! So, with that, here are my six:
    1. I am resigning from my day job to write full-time.
    2. I have written a book that is doing fabulously well on the NY Times bestseller list!
    3. I am continuing the habit of starting every day in quiet meditation.
    4. I am spending time with some great musicians helping to write songs that are bold and inspiring!
    5. I am fully present in all of the moments of my daily living.
    6. I have traveled to all the continents in our world – and have had the opportunity to interact with many different peoples of the world – and to know their culture.

    But you already are a great writer and photographer. So I challenge you to dream bigger!

    The grandkids and husband are the best on your list. And I’ll be stopping by for coffee near the ocean soon! Oh and count me in for putting your new book on my blog:)

    What a list! About no. 6. My duaghter Kara used to be a teacher. She changed jobs as now works as a flight attendant for South West. That means we fly free anywhere in the US SW flies and get discounted tickets any where else.

    Maybe you can gear one of your children towards a job like that!
    Thanks for a thought provoking list.

    1. I will sell something each day!
    2. I practice the Laws of Attraction and see the positive in each experience : ).
    3. I look forward to completing a 1/2 Ironman by the end of the year.
    4. I’m about to experience love like never before : )
    5. I am saving so much $$$ that my future is green, green, green.
    6. I am successful and happy in all I do and my life is full of meaning.
    7. I will give back. (snuck another one in!)

  • Tess January 27, 2009, 9:10 am

    There is no doubt these things will happen. I’m getting a green, green, green, future as well!

    I love the one you snuck in.

    1. I am extremely healthy
    2. I’m financially independent
    3. The value I create is delivered on a massive scale
    4. I will wake up every morning and enjoy life
    5. World peace is believable by most
    6. I can use the Law of Attraction easily

    Thanks for this post. It really required me to think hard about what it is I truly would like to see and since you said impossible, there were no limits.

    Mmm, I would rather put it as six big goals, rather, than impossible things.

    3. I am not going to discuss my blog with everyone i meet
    4. I am not going to collect new ideas and new topics for my blog
    5. I am not going to read 10000000 other blogs in search for new insights
    6. I come home after 16:00

    these are pretty impossible with me 😉
