Someone once said, “Impossible is not a fact, it’s an opinion.” If this weren’t true, some people wouldn’t break the records of others and some people wouldn’t invent new things.
The concept of impossibility finds expression in people who wouldn’t risk failure in the first place. Trying is risking failure because by trying, you are saying you can take a punch in the face and sometimes, life will test your resolve.
Since we are certain about the possibility of failing, why not focus on becoming certain about the possibility of success?
Trying is how you defy your internal concept of impossibility. So, reach out to that client this week, ask for a raise, run a marathon and write that book in six days. After all, ‘impossible’ is not a fact, it’s an opinion.
