The time will come for those who keep saying the ‘impossible things’ to come forward and admit their insecurity. These are the ones who keep saying, “It’s impossible”. These are the same people who figure out deep meaningful excuses and convince themselves of the impossible-to-climb walls.
What about those ‘impossible’ situations?
This begs one simple question. Is the situation impossible, or our perception of the situation, or our focus on the situation?
The first two cases are quite simply, easy to solve. If a particular situation is impossible then we just have to admit it. It is quite frankly, just not worth fighting. If however, it is our perception that insists on the impossibility, then we can be sure that it is in fact possible. And hence, we can continue on fighting.
Quite often a situation possesses both factors. There are certain areas where it is impossible for us to do anything about, but there are certain areas where it is possible for us to tackle.
A quick example is someone who plays chess. When it is his turn to move, he is faced with many possible action steps. Some of which might send his king to the grave while others can move his queen forward to victory. There will be instances where he is cornered and all his moves will spell doom. However, this situation rarely happens unless off course he is very unlucky, or his opponent is very good.
Life is much more complex than a game of chess and it is very difficult to determine if we have any moves left or not. Before we make the ultimate decision that we are cornered and our every moves will result in disaster, shouldn’t we take a hard look at our situation and figure out another way to move our pawns?
Once we have made our mind that our end is definite, our efforts for sure will end.
When we say we can do the impossibles, we are not delusional. We simply refuse to defeat ourselves. Have you ever thought that those who refuse to try and keep saying ‘it’s impossible’ are delusional?
Why would we spell doom to ourselves?
Are we focusing on the situation or just on the impossibles?
Maybe if we only just focus on the possibles, on the things that we can do right now.
If we just do what we can do, then before we know it we’ll be doing things that are difficult, and finally we’ll be doing the impossibles.
