What if my dream is impossible?

Humans do incredible things. Consider Roger Crawford, The American born with one leg and two arms, but no hands. Roger became a professional tennis player. That is, he earned professional status and coached tennis for a living. You can read his story in his book, “PLAYING FROM THE HEART“. Roger’s story makes you take a second look at your limitations.

An EXAMPLE: Do you know why a lot of people with disability go to Beijing 2008 Paralympic Games. They want the whole world to recognize them and prove the able people wrong. In life they want to do build a reputation of themselves. There is nothing wrong with it to go after dreams, after dreams until they taste the achievements. It is one of the never ending road to success and do not let your mind waver or otherwise your mindset will sink. Follow your heart not your brains.

Digital Dan, of Ferndale, California, was a carpenter until he got cancer of the throat and had his voice box removed. When he could no longer speak, he became a disc jockey! Dan types his words into a laptop computer and the laptop does the talking!

There is a pattern amongst people who achieve their dreams – they often start from a long way behind. You find sickly asthmatics who became champion athletes, you find tycoons who were bankrupts. You find a thousand stories of illiterate immigrants who became college professors and company presidents.

When the odds are stacked against you, you develop a mental toughness just to survive. The strength you develop to survive becomes your secret weapon.

CONCLUSION: We always have choices. If you are not doing something, it’s because you are putting your energy elsewhere. The question is not: “Why is this impossible?” The question is: “What am I unwilling to do?” When you say: “I’ll do this thing. I don’t care how hard it is”, life then starts to support you.

“You can’t build a reputation on what you’re GOING to do.” – Henry Ford
