I have a little piece of paper that I’ve cut out from a dictionary and attached to my monitor with the word “Impossible” on it.
I’ve always hated this word since it filled me with a feeling of uneasiness. Something that can’t be done, no matter how hard I try I will fail, so why bother in the first place?
“What the fuck!” I thought. “This is not right, I should be able to make of my life whatever the hell I want!”
But not everything is possible, right? hence the word impossible. Well, no, not even close.
You see, when I was cutting off that word from the dictionary it felt like taking the very meaning of impossible and removing it from my (mental) dictionary. Why should someone, why should YOU live this life with such a limiting word in your head?
It’s crazy to even think about that word when you just have this life at your disposal.
But I know that this is not the only thing that is stopping you from realizing your dreams. There IS something else:
Your abhorrence towards Hard Work
When it comes to realizing something hard and worthwhile, the people who use the word “Impossible” are usually the ones who don’t succeed, and they have 2 things in common:
- They DESPISE working hard.
- They LOVE daydreaming. (which would’ve been fine if only they didn’t despise hard-work)
But the Impossible thing about this all, it’s not even the word itself.
It’s the mindset you have, the “Impossibility Mindset” that you have engrained into the depths of your psyche, that is stopping you from even REMOTELY considering the thought that maybe, you can really do what you want to do.
You’re programmed by society’s standards of what is possible and what’s not. Your friends, family and loved ones all say so, to leave it be, that is not realistic.
But at some point in time you REALLY believed it was possible, right? that just means that the thought of it being impossible it’s not yours, after all. Is something you picked up while cruising through life and that just happened to set itself in stone because of some failures you experienced…
BUT IT DOESN’T HAVE TO BE YOUR REALITY.
The process behind this is simple, but overcomplicated:
- Reject the impossibility of whatever you’re after, along with the word “Impossible”.
- Understand that “Impossible” is just an inflated, enormous and misused word for something that did not took place YET.
- Work so hard and smart until your goals are finally reality.
Exactly like I did, You too can remove the very meaning of that word from your life if you’re willing to decide so and reject the common standards that are forced onto you.
