You Must Find A Place Inside Yourself Where Nothing Is Impossible.
Is something impossible? In many cases the answer is absolutely yes. The prospect of my having a career as a K-pop star is absolutely nonexistent. Which is fine because I have no aspirations towards such.
But what if Orville and Wilbur Wright believed that flight was impossible? Or if Louis Pasteur felt that vaccination and microbial fermentation were impossible, where would we be right now as we are facing Covid?
At a certain point, the word impossible almost needs to be replaced with “hasn’t been done by anybody yet, but I am going to do it.“
But how does one get into that frame of mind? I believe it starts with self-confidence. One stands on the shoulders of their previous triumphs and recognizes that each of those were a direct acceleration from prior successes. At that moment it becomes a moment of devout belief.
It becomes something that is so core in one’s foundation as to feel every bit as real as everything else in life. This is how athletes are able to set world records. This is how scientists have breakthroughs. This is how mathematicians conjure new formulas. And this is how entrepreneurs struggle against a world that really does not want them to change it.
Whatever course you have chosen in your life, you will inevitably hit a road marker that is a metaphorical sign post telling you you are at the end of the road. The secret is to see that as a gauntlet that has been laid before you and recognize that this is your moment to discover what you are truly made of.
It is time to dig in and believe with everything you’ve got that you are fully capable of breaking through. After that the rest just becomes history.
If I really did have the aspiration to be a K-pop star, I would have to start studying Psy?
