A seminal classic You Can Become the Person You Want to Be by Robert H. Schuller delves into strategies that empower individuals to succeed. Through personal examples, antidotal sayings, and a simple approach, Schuller visits these universal truths that he calls possibility thinking. According to Schuller, the first step is to analyze your situation and realize who is to blame. The common is individual's circumstances, the system we live in, or just bad luck. Most persons are limited by a self imposed cage, these are why not it can't be done, rather than simply doing it. Taking personal responsibilities and doing something about your circumstances begins with you. Henry Ford was fond of saying, "Think you can, think you can't; either way you'll be right." Schuller goes on to state that "there is an abundance of scientific evidence that an individual's mental picture of himself, more than any other factor, sets the ultimate boundaries of his achievements." A strong self image creates an abundance of inner self confidence. Next is that Enthusiasm is the winning ingredient. One example given is that "A dull knife, no longer able to cut; a clouded window, no longer admitting light; a loose guitar string, no longer sounding and humming", you get the point that the key ingredient is to have a idea, a vision, and boundless enthusiasm. In the musical play 1776, George Washington asks three profound questions: Is anybody there? Is anybody listening? Does anyone care? These are important questions to search for meaning, but with prayer+possibility thinking = success. Keep in mind that prayer is not a scream or a scheme! By setting goes, have inner perspective , and moving forward with possibility thinking, you too can become the person you want to be.
