“Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they’ve been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact, it’s an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration, it’s a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.”
~ Laila Ali (Mohammad Ali’s Daughter)
I shared with you in the last post that I used to play soccer, so I thought I’d share something soccer related with this post. You may be familiar with Adidas’ “Impossible is Nothing” promotions or you may not be. If you haven’t taken the time to watch the video above, take the 3:34 and watch it. It’s truly inspirational and shows that nothing is truly impossible.
The reason that I’m writing about this today is because I am starting to realize more and more that people are always telling you and I that we can’t do something. SCREW THEM! We can do anything that we want to do. There is no point in letting what someone tells you hold you down. We are the only person who can decide our future. We make the decisions that influence our lives, it’s no one’s decision but our own.
I’m sick and tired of people telling us that we can’t do something. If you can dream it, you can do it. Always remember that. Adidas says it best with their Impossible is Nothing slogan and I believe this is the truth more than anything I’ve heard in a long time. If you are stuck on something in your life, there is a reason. It’s because you have made this thing seem impossible. I’ve done it with a lot of different things in my life. I’ve made certain things impossible in my mind and that is the reason that I haven’t accomplished them. Now is the time to MAKE EVERYTHING POSSIBLE. If you want to learn how to truly be happy, there is a way. Find someone who is truly happy and learn from them! If you want to make more money, learn from someone who makes more than you.
When you do this, you’ll start to notice that these people thought that accomplishing what they now have was once impossible. YET they made it entirely possible by breaking it down and doing it. You can do this too 😉
Impossible is nothing
What do you think when you read that? For me, I think of all the things that my teachers and coach’s had told me throughout my life. “You’re not tall enough, you aren’t smart enough, you can’t afford to do that, you can’t you can’t you can’t” BLAH BLAH BLAH
BULLSHIT. I CAN. I can do whatever I set my mind out to do and so can you.
As humans, we are programmed to have infinite potential.
There are way too many people in this world who are negative and not enough people who are positive. You hear it everyday from someone, “You can’t do that”. Well, I am here to tell you that “YOU CAN DO IT.”
Man, I feel kind of like a motivational speaker writing this right now. I wrote up a blog addressing whether or not positive self-talk is BS that addresses a little about how many people fail to use positive self talk effectively.
But the truth of the matter is that we really can do anything that we want to. No one can control our actions. If we choose to be successful, we WILL be successful. I’ve made the decision to declare to myself that Impossible Is Nothing and I’m sticking with it. Are you with me?
