Muhammad Ali (born Cassius Marcellus Clay Jr.;[9] January 17, 1942 – June 3, 2016) was an American professional boxer and activist. He is widely regarded as one of the most significant and celebrated sports figures of the 20th century. From early in his career, Ali was known as an inspiring, controversial, and polarizing figure both inside and outside the ring.

I love what he has to say about impossilbe!

“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.”

Probably the longest quote I've shared but he really says a lot here doesn't he?

We have talked about impossible a few times lately but it it a really important word to consider in our language.

This word can really make or break a person or situation.

I love how he says, "Impossible is not a fact it is an opinion."

We only think things are impossible.

The proof is really in the pudding ya know.

As we sit there believe things are impossible, those very same things are being done all over the world by people every day.

Sometimes even seemingly miraculous things.

So let's get real, if the things we believe to be impossible are being done by other people all over the place then we have our proof that they are indeed possible.

All we have to do it believe they are, then get up and make them happen.

Sometimes i think of this destructive word like comfort food.

We say it, knowing at least a little that it's not good for us, yet it somehow makes us feel better.

We feel better believing in it's existence so we don't actually have to leave our comfort zone to go for something better.

We get to just sit there, stagnant.

Since things are not changing for us, we don't progress but we do feel a sense of comfort from familiar surroundings.

So if you are feeling comfortable, ask yourself why?

Is it because you have reached a place in life that you have achieved a success that makes you comfortable?

Or is it because of the familiar surroundings that are holding you back from achieving your greatness?

Remember,

“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.”

I commented something similar maybe your post (or maybe someone else's), but if people believed things where impossible we would have never had the pyramids and other ancient wonders. It's amazing the limits we put on ourselves when those people were able to make such amazing creations.

You did, on one of my last posts that also covered the word impossible. I remember. You are totally right to!
