Some Thoughts and Quotes on the word IMPOSSIBLE

The next time someone tells you something is impossible, just Smile, nod your head and move on. In your mind you can thank them for the motivation to prove their statement wrong. After al who mare they and HOW do they know for certain that whatever in question is in fact “impossible”. The real fact is 99% of the time they are not qualified to make that statement.

In fact every day on this earth people are proven wrong and things get done that were supposedly “impossible”. So again people can choose to think what they want to think. But you also, can choose to not listen to them and think other thoughts.

Consider these classic statements from some pretty profound and educated men:

-Carl Lewis-
Lewis needs about another 7-8 inches to prove that one wrong.

It’s not a lucky word, this name ‘impossible’; no good comes of those who have it so often in their mouths.”

“This became a credo of mine…attempt the impossible to improve your work.”
-Bette Davis-
And you might be surprised what you can accomplish by raising your own ‘impossibility’ bar.

“Impossible is a word to be found only in the dictionary of fools.”
-Napoleon Bonaparte-

“We are continually faced with great opportunities, which are brilliantly disguised as unsolvable problems.”
-Margaret Mead-
For those of you unaware, Mead has some of the best quotes ever, worth googling.

Finally we’ll end on none other than Mr Walt Disney, a man who has brought to life things only the likes of Willy Wonka could imagine.
