No way. You wish. Never happening. In your dreams. If you’re like most, these are some of your probable reactions when you view something as “impossible.”
But what if impossible just meant “not yet” rather than never?
Think about it: Every existing building, bridge, vehicle, technology, and medication was at one point considered impossible. In fact, every single tool we use, every system we enjoy, every human accomplishment we have attained was considered an impossibility before it became a reality.
So, what does this mean for you? Think about some of the things you’ve told yourself were impossible. Maybe things in your own life you never could have imagined being possible just a few years ago. I know that many of the daily activities I am now enjoying, both in my professional and personal life, are this way. If you had asked me 10 years ago if I would be doing triathlons or speaking on a big stage, I would have surely said something like “in your dreams”.
What if you challenged the current thinking and were determined to make things better not only for others but also for yourself?
What if you surrounded yourself with bright and thoughtful people who come together to discover ways to make the impossible a reality, perhaps mostly because of their positive and grateful attitude?
What if instead of it being about others making breakthroughs and doing the “impossible”, it was about you and your beautiful endless potential to become all that God created you to be? What if God’s grace could abound in your life?
What if you could find what makes you come alive and go do that? What might the possibilities be for you?
My friends, I believe Muhammad Ali had it right. We all have a purpose, some big by the worlds standards and some smaller by the worlds standards, but no less important. When you can focus on gratitude, believe in yourself, and trust that you truly have what it takes, you will make the impossible possible. And when you can do that, only the best is yet to come!
