There are things that are physically impossible. Like as a lone individual I cannot stretch my arms out to my sides and take off into the sky. I also cannot hold my breath long enough to commune with the whales in their natural environment.
Broaden your perspective
However, that’s not to say I can’t experience the expanse of sky or sea. If I really want to, I could investigate the possibilities of hang gliding or jet packs to have an at-one experience with the sky dwellers. I can also learn to dive or at least snorkel to get myself close to the whales that mean so much to me.
With the right attitude and some imagination, the impossible becomes possible.
Push for your outcome
Now down to more tangible aspirations. What is your impossible? Is it writing and publishing a book of poetry? Becoming president of your company? Moving up to head of marketing?
No matter what your impossible is, you won’t get there in one fell swoop. There are intermediary steps to take on the way. Before you can publish a book of poetry you need to produce some poems. Some outstanding ones. The thrill of seeing one published in a magazine is the gas that will power you to keep on writing. To investigate exactly what goes into getting a book published (or publishing it yourself).
Life will meet you half way
As you work toward your goal of becoming head of marketing or president of your company, you are developing personally and professionally. Expanding your skills and network. People are noticing your efforts. Sometimes help comes from unexpected sources. Someone might offer to take you under their wing or introduce you to another who can advance your career. It’s like the energy and effort we put out into the world is reflected back our way.
Belief in yourself and your potential and the possibilities pushes you to try new things and work harder, and in so doing unexpected doors open. That’s when you start to see the I’m in I’m-possible.
