Go back to: Day 1 | Day 2 [Haven’t taken the IN AWE 21-Day Challenge? Join here.]

 

Welcome to Day 3 of the IN AWE 21-Day Challenge! Today, we spark inspiration, meaning and joy by cultivating POSSIBILITY:

Remember this: Every thing that exists today was at one point in history believed to be utterly impossible. During difficult times such as these, this perspective will help us not only change the world, but our individual lives.

CHALLENGE: As you look at the headlines, or lowlights, your dreams or challenges, refuse to give in to the notion that anything is impossible.

INSPIRATION: A friend of mine was tired of seeing everything that’s wrong in the world as the final word. So, he began to view life as a child: Ask questions, rather than give answers… stay open to new possibility, rather than accept impossibility… surrounded himself with others, rather than trying to manage alone + lead with “limitless naivety.” Mick Ebeling is president of Not Impossible Labs where they see possibility within “problems.” Hear his story on Live Inspired Podcast Ep. 94.Mick Ebeling Podcast Image

ACTION: Identify one thing you see in life as impossible. Now, ask yourself Mick’s favorite questions (Why not? Who says? What if?) to begin brainstorming creative, potentially radical, ways to make the “impossible” possible.

Share ONE word that best describes the emotion of how it felt to question the “impossible” in the comments below or on social media, tagging me + using #inawe.

My friend, today is your day! Accept the challenge And live IN AWE.
John O’Leary

    Embarrassed.

    I felt embarrassed asking these types of questions. Was I the only one who didn’t know what’s going on? Am I the only one who needed more questions answered? It sounds like a stupid question. Should I ask anyway? I felt that I didn’t do my due diligence before asking questions.

    Possibility – I want to take the opportunities of a child to have new adventures rather then “same ole, same ole”. My volunteering with children has come to a temporary halt with the virus situation. I miss being with these open minded little people. I miss feeling their excitement and wonder about nature. In the meantime I try to keep in touch with cards and questions about what they are doing.

    Fear is my impossible. Fear holds me back from trying new things. If it’s my idea. If it is someone else’s idea I have no problem doing it

    COACH

    I’ve been a teacher for 31 years and a Basketball coach for longer than that – I need to follow my own advice that I’ve given to my students and players.. I need to be my own cheerleader, my own #1 fan instead of my own harshest critic. It’s all about having a totally different mindset than the one that has gotten me to where I’m currently at. 😉 Thanks for this challenge John… got my mind going in a better direction.

    Today’s challenge (Day 3) was tough to imagine the possibilities. In my adult viewpoint it was easy to imagine the impossible. I took your friend’s advice to look at the impossible from a child’s eyes. Wow…the word came to me immediately! Invigorating.

      After listening to Mick, I am so inspired to never give up or take no for an answer.
      The impossible is not impossible!

    PERSISTENCE!

    I find that this challenge is right in line with the times.

    We need to be challenged to buck the trend, to come against negativity, and to create our own future.

    In the two earlier day’s challenges, I shared what was eating on me as it relates to my speaking business. After tears of joy, and also tears of surrender, I have decided to embrace that which I know in the spirit that God has given me, and to be the speaker, business owner, friend, spouse, and leader that I know I am equipped to be.

    And it is through PERSISTENCE…Or, as I like to say our “Never Give Up” attitude that will carry us through to a better tomorrow.

    You might think that we live in “challenging” times…
    One thing is for sure, they are definitely “different times.

    When you make the choice to “stay the course”, it will propel you into the champion you are capable of being.
