I was at the beach yesterday watching cruise ships in the distance. It made me think of how crazy it is that these hotels on water stay afloat. While I know that there’s a scientific explanation for how something carrying thousands of people and their belongings can stay afloat, it was a nice reminder of the fact that anything the mind can perceive, we can achieve.
We’re all given ideas for a reason. It’s to give us an idea of what is possible if we want it bad enough. Think about ideas that you’ve had in the past that you haven’t acted on. Have you ever seen someone put that very idea into practice? You may have even thought to yourself “hey, they stole my idea!” The reality is that the Universe is downloading ideas to all of us all the time. Some of us leave it at a thought; others decide to take action to make it a reality.
Think about it – how many people told the Wright Brothers they’d never get a plane to fly? How many thought the 9 minute mile was impossible until someone cracked it? Everything seems undoable until someone finds a way to do it. Maybe there’s something that you’ve achieved in your own life that others, and maybe even you doubted was possible at one point in time.
Our only limitations in life are the ones we set for ourselves. If you have an idea and tell yourself that it’s not possible, then you’re right. If that idea inspires you to take action and you remain committed to seeing it through to completion regardless of the obstacles you encounter, you will find a way to make it happen. Read countless stories of successful people, and you’ll see the only thing that sets them apart from the average person is their willingness to take action, persist through various challenges and remain committed to the achievement of a goal.
Achieving the impossible isn’t an easy thing to do. If it was, it wouldn’t be considered impossible in the first place! If you have goals that you want to achieve this year and they seem unrealistic or unachievable, put the work into making them a reality anyway. There is no perfect time to make things happen, the stars don’t have to be aligned in a particular way. Action is rewarded. Once you commit to making your dreams a reality, you will find that the Universe conspires with you to make them happen. Nothing is impossible. You just have to be ready and willing to do what it takes to get you closer to your goals on a daily basis and an ability to take action regardless of what your current circumstances may be. ♥
What “impossible” goal are you ready to make happen in 2016?
