If you can’t deliver hope to yourself, who can? The busy, busy syndrome takes you nowhere.
People just know when they are on the right track.
The older we get the more we seem to think things are impossible. The word impossible is just a big word loosely used by small minded people who find it easier to live in their comfort zone than to explore the ability and capacity they have to change their circumstances for the better.
Never stop doing your best and seeking to achieve the impossible, just because someone doesn’t believe you can. Most people tend to look at why something can’t be done. Don’t be one of them practice seeking out the best opportunities even though you might fail.
Of course every time you fail, and you learn from it, it enables you to reach out more next time. It’s not enough to be in right place at right time. You have to be the right person in the right place at the right time.
“It always seems impossible until it’s done”. Nelson Mandela
It’s easier to say something is impossible, but not so easy to turn the impossible into a new innovation. With the world full of billions of people it is certainly hard to believe you can do something important that can have an impact. but the impossible is happening every day.
A man on the moon was impossible once, but it happened and we are now reaching for the stars. Creating human body parts, 3D Printing, smartphones and robotics are now commonplace. Every day now there is news from somewhere in the world about someone who had done the impossible.
Maybe it seems a little fanciful, or at least your friends would, to believe you can make a mark in the world of any consequence. The people who have made a mark are people who never gave up hope.
Remember the famous quotes of Thomas Edison, “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work”. He also said, “Genius is one percent inspiration and ninety-nine percent perspiration”, and “Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work”.
Everyone had periods of doubts and at some time or other considers giving up seems like a good option. When this happens to you, just think of why you tried so hard in the first place. Impossible is usually only a thought you have inherited from some negative person.
In the end, you decide what’s impossible, and therefore nothing has to be beyond your reach. Imagine Edison’s disappointment when he had failed just 1,000 times, never mind 10,000 times, before he invented the light bulb.
Don’t worry about how your television works, just get on and do what you can with your ideas and opportunities with the resources you already have, meagre though they might be.
Those of you who seem to lack that extraordinary ability deal in the field of impossibilities every day, take heart as the key to success is to be able to judge the very difficult from the impossible. Weigh the value in accomplishing whatever the task at hand is, in order to know “when to hold ’em and when to fold ’em and when to run away”, (Kenny Rogers).

The word impossible has never been in my vocabulary.
I was fortunate when I was growing up that I had parents that always had a positive outlook. They caused me to believe I could achieve anything I put my mind to and it works, Well, almost all the time.
In my experience, I have found five things that get in the way of doing seemingly impossible things:
- Negativity and negative people have always been the curse associated with doing seemingly impossible things.
- When money it brought into the equation, impossible can suddenly become a
- The success you have with a project is in direct proportion to the amount of time you devote to it.
- Not crystallising the problem you are trying to solve.
- Failing to plan well for positive outcomes.
