What’s impossible?

Do you believe in the impossible?

It’s easy to think that there are things that are impossible in life. Then again it’s easy to prove that’s not true.

I’ve been given the privilege of teaching a leadership and character building class for 3rd, 4th and 5th graders. One of the things I asked them today was if they believed in the impossible. Most don’t.

As adults we seem to lose touch with that “no limits all is possible mentality.” Here’s an example I gave the kids today about dreaming big and doing the impossible.

For the most part everyone (especially adults and young adults) use a cell phone for the majority of the day. What’s interesting is that around 50 or 60 years ago (don’t quote me on the time frame) the man who introduced the idea of long distance communication by radio frequency was considered crazy by his friends. They actually wanted to send him to a mental institution. After the idea came to be everyone praised his genius.

That man challenged the impossible though and changed the world. If he would have let his friends set his own limitations how would life be different today?

I don’t really think that there is such a thing as impossible. Honestly, I think that impossible is just an invitation for the great minds of this world to challenge just how much we can accomplish if we refuse to quit. How much we can accomplish if we refuse to let others set limitations for us.

Remember this: Small minds will always be intimidated by the ideas of great ones.

love you all
