There’s a quote I LOVE by Thomas Edison, he said, “If we all did the things we are capable of, we would literally astound ourselves.” How true is that? How many amazing ideas have you come up with and then thought it wasn’t possible for you to achieve it? I used to do it all of the time.
The thing is, it’s easy to think you can’t do something, especially when you’ve never done it before. Have you ever thought things like, ‘I can’t do it because I need more experience?’ ‘I can’t do it because I’m not clever enough/smart enough/talented enough’ We often think we need to be something else before we can achieve what we want, and so our dreams stay out of our reach.
Just imagine where you’d be right now if you believed that there were no limits to what you could achieve!
The impossible is possible…
- They thought it was impossible for a human being to run a mile in under 4 minutes. Well, we all know that’s a load of rubbish now thanks to Roger Bannister – who believed when everyone else didn’t.
- They thought it was impossible to land on the moon… we all know what happened there (well some question it).
- They thought it was impossible for a human to travel at the speed of sound, Felix Baumgartner smashed that belief in 2012.
People are doing the impossible every day, they are far and few between, but they’re out there. Will you be one of them? Are you prepared stand out from the crowd and believe that you can achieve things even though some might think it’s impossible or unrealistic?
Whatever you want to achieve, believe that it’s possible and make it your aim to achieve it.
