Creative Poise
By Dr. Robert Schuller

Keep a strong possibility posture as you confront your problem with creative poise. You will use Possibility Thinking to:

• Remind yourself that every problem is an unfilled need.

• Remember that success is finding a need and filling it.

• View your problem as an opportunity in disguise.

• Welcome your problem as a guideline or challenge.

• Look for and find someone somewhere who can help you solve or sublimate this problem.

If you live near the ocean, watch the waves roll in. You may see a timid swimmer who, spotting a great wave rising, panics, turns, and runs, only to be overcome by the rushing mountain of water and sent tumbling and sputtering in the surf. Now watch the surfer. He looks for and sees the savage wave swelling. He welcomes the wave with the spirit of Caleb, "Give me a mountain!" He is poised with a surfboard in his hands. As the rising, racing wave reaches full crest this Possibility Thinker mounts the liquid mountain and is lifted high and carried far!

Face your problems with creative poise and you will never be defeated.
