You may have heard the phrase “When Pigs Fly” as a way of saying some thing is impossible, well I have news for you, pigs have already flown. Some tips for motivation.

When Pigs Fly

Many people spend their lives just waiting for good things to happen to them. However, on some level they believe and even state, that these good things will only happen when pigs fly. Since most people think that pigs cannot fly, this is a way of saying "when the impossible happens", or basically that they do not really expect good things will happen to them.

The career they want becomes a flying pig, an unattainable thing. The spouse a person wants becomes a flying pig. An overflowing bank account becomes a flying pig. The dream vacation becomes a flying pig. Ultimately even happiness becomes a flying pig. Unconsciously, these people keep their focus on the impossibility of flying pigs instead of accepting a universe of possibilities that they can create if they will only put their focus on making the seemingly impossible happen for them.

For some reason these people have a mind that has kept them trapped in a mindset of “that's impossible” instead of one of “how do I make this possible”. In turn their mindset helps to create more negative experiences that then further trap them in this cycle of impossibility.

If you are one of these people you can change impossibilities into possibilities by changing your perception and taking action based on that change. This can start with the adoption of an attitude of possibility.

If you hold an attitude that you won't have the money you desire, the relationship that you desire, the health your desire, the career you desire until pigs fly then be aware that pigs have flown.

The Flying Pig

The first pig flew in Leysdown, in Kent, in 1909. This is a historical fact. In 1909 Lord John Theodore Cuthbert Moore-Brabazon, 1st Baron Brabazon of Tara put a pig in a wicker basket with sign saying “I am the first pig to fly” and took that pig on an airplane flight.

Lord Brabazon, through a change in perception of the phrase “When pigs fly”, turned the impossabile to the possabile. Through a change in our perception we too can adopt an attitude of possibility within our minds that leads to actions that make possible everything we truly desire.

What will you do, now that you know pigs have already flown? Your life is yours to fly!
