Dare the Impossible
It seems so much more daunting that it really is.
It’s only because you and I have certain beliefs we hold about what is possible or not–and even beliefs about the idea of possibility.
We think that the impossible is something that is grand and overwhelming–that only the superheroes and over-achievers attempt.
This is horse pucky!
You Have Done a Thousand Impossible Things
I dare you.
There are a thousand things that were once impossible that you now do easily, confidently and without thought.
3. Learning a new skill
And the list goes on. Everything in your life, at one point or another, was impossible.
Therefore, Doing the Impossible is Normal!
We have created beliefs about our ability to do impossible things, but they are all full of caca.
Here are a list of things that I have done in the past couple of years which seemed to be impossible.
1. Wrote/published a book.
2. Created a website–correction, 4 websites–with no previous programming or web design knowledge or skills.
3. Started a speaking and writing career.
4. Took a sidetrack and started a new job to support my dreams.
5. Re-evaluated and shored up my most important relationship
6. Launched a new coaching project and successfully executed several powerful coaching session (in the last month)
Notice the impossible things that were disguised as failures or the result of a failure (ie, #4 and 5)? This is your life, so muck it up! It’s okay.
Here’s the point…
You don’t have to wait to do what seems impossible.
What one thing do you believe to be impossible to you in 2013? Go do that.
If you are discouraged or unsure, it is because you are unclear. Create clarity by getting real and breaking it down into ridiculously obviously small steps. Then take those steps until the task is done and you have achieved the impossible.
What impossible thing are you excited to do this year?
What do you think is holding you back from doing it?
How are you planning to take action toward doing that thing?
