Impossible is a word thrown around too casually these days.
If the general consensus is to be believed, too many things are impossible.
Here’s the problem with that – when we deem something to be impossible, we put a limit on our capabilities.
It becomes impossible not really because it is, but because we believe it to be.
What is impossible – really, and nearly always – is a matter of our beliefs.
This is exactly why people were absolutely convinced that no one can run a mile in under four minutes – until someone did.
This is exactly why our ancestors did not believe the whole earth can be charted, until it was.
This is exactly why people thought it was impossible for humans to ever go the moon – until it was done.
And this is exactly why people did not believe humans can ever fly, until the Wright brothers made it possible.
Because impossible is more a matter of belief than fact.
History is full of examples like this – of how something was considered impossible – until it was proven not to be.
And here lies the trick: you can only really find out whether something is possible or not by actually doing it.
Don’t just decide something is impossible.
Have a go at it. Give it your absolute best shot, and then some.
Rely on facts, not hearsay.
You are capable of far more than you will ever know.
And the only way you’ll even scratch the surface of your potential is by pushing yourself, and attempting the impossible.
Be a pioneer.
Do the impossible.
Prove everyone wrong.
