In the movie, Mission Impossible, Ethan Hunt's mission is created by his superiors.
He simply chooses whether he'll accept it or not.
In Mission Possible, you are the missionary and therefore you must create your own mission through your power of choice!
It is important to realise that I can't create your mission for you. I can't even motivate you!
What I can do, however, is help you to discover it.
Once you define your mission, you can then motivate yourself - the same intensity and strength of purpose that has fuelled destinies is available to you when you know what you want and unleash the power of your desires.
For those of you who are in your more productive years (65 years of age and over) now is a great time to lock down the next 10 to 15 years of your life.
See them as your golden years that will be the most fulfilling and rewarding. You now have the ideal opportunity to do the things you always wanted to do but never had the time, so choose now to live life and make the next decade your best ever!
Think of all the things that you would like to accomplish within your lifetime.
Not just the big, bold and daring things but also the smaller, yet still important, things.
What would be your ideal weight if anything were possible? What places would you like to visit if you had unlimited funds to do so?Who would you like to meet?
Picture yourself with the house you truly desire; the car; the social life.
Describe the type of person you want to become in this no-holds-barred, dream environment.
"A #2 pencil and a dream can take you anywhere." - Joyce A. Myers
While your creative right brain is being encouraged to soar freely, your left brain, the analytical, executive part, may be thinking, "I'm not sure these things are possible."
You must suspend your beliefs about what is impossible long enough to allow your creativity, spontaneity and imagination to start to show you what is possible.
You have to replace words such as "I can't", "I never" or "I couldn't" with "I want" and "I will".
If you over- rationalise in this elementary process, you will greatly limit your ability to tap the power of your inner potential.
Would you like to spend a week away on an enchanted tropical island?
Maybe you desire more money because "there's too much month left at the end of the money"!
Perhaps you'd like to take your children to Disneyland? Have you ever dreamt of starting your own business? How about meeting the perfect man or woman?
What about these: would you like to climb Mount Everest, buy a new car or contribute to the less fortunate in a generous way? It's your life so dare to dream!
Get in touch with the things that, deep down, you'd love to be, have or do. Go for it!
Write down on a piece of paper, in a journal or notebook, all you would like to be, have or do. You don't have to know the "how" right now, just work on developing the "what".
