“Impossible 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
“It is difficult to say what is impossible, for the dream of yesterday is the hope of today and the reality of tomorrow.”
- Robert H. Goddard
In May, 1954 Roger Bannister ran one mile in less than 4 minutes.
Until it happened, no one thought it was even possible. It was a major psychological barrier.
BUT once it happened, others quickly followed. And now, it’s commonplace.
When Roger Bannister was interviewed after breaking the 4-minute mile, he was asked to describe how he did it.
He quickly replied…
“It’s the ability to take more out of yourself than you’ve got.”
~ Roger Bannister
What is impossible?
Changing a duvet cover in the back of a moving caravan?
Playing the sax solo from Gerry Rafferties Baker street while kicking a football up an escalator?
Opening a bag of Doritoes whilst standing in a hammock?
Teaching a snake to tapdance?
When I was a kid, I would get frustrated and declare “THAT’S IMPOSSIBLE”
My dad taught me a valuable life lesson that I’ve kept with me ever since…
