Think BiG Thoughts No.11

Muhammad AliImpossible 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.

~ Muhammad Ali

There are some words that get treated as if they’re fact when, in reality, they’re nothing more than concepts or ideas.

Impossible‘ is one of those words ….. and another example, of a very similar nature, is the word ‘perfect‘.

We have a tendency to hold up words, like these, as if they’re something bigger than us – and then use them as an excuse for ………. well ….. just about anything!

We live in a world where technology is advancing at a mind boggling pace, where we take things for granted that only 10 or 15 years ago would have seemed impossible – things that, 100 years ago, would have seemed completely magical. And yet, we still give these words – words like ‘impossible‘ – so much power over us.

This quotation from Muhammad Ali reminds me that;

  • With the right approach, anything is possible!
  • That the things we see as being impossible are only so, until someone stands up and shows us that they aren’t.
  • That ‘impossible‘ is a choice we make.

What impossible thing will you do today?
