"Impossible is just a 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 potential.” - Muhammad Ali
If you’re like most, these are your likely reactions when you think of the word “Impossible.”
But what if that word just means “not yet” rather than never?
Consider this: every existing building, bridge, vehicle, technology, and medication was at one point considered impossible. In fact, every single tool we use, every system we enjoy, every human accomplishment we have attained was considered an impossibility before it became a reality.
What does this reality mean for you, the challenges we face and the future before us? Mick Ebeling certainly know what it means to him.
Today's #MondayMotivation reveals how Mick Ebeling views the word impossible, what he's done to make the impossible a reality, and ultimately what his example means for you. Check out the full blog here: bit.ly/EbelingBlog
My friends, impossible isn't the end; it's the potential for a new, better beginning.
Getting the kids ready for church and their back to school social later this afternoon, and I couldn't help but think back to their first day of school last August (pictured here) and ultimately my own first day back to school following the fire, five months in the hospital, and ten months of therapy at home.
My friends, first days are always hard. After all that had changed, I was super apprehensive about my return. The class-clown and little athlete my classmates knew had been radically transformed. I knew it, they were about to see it, and I was scared about their reaction to it. As we neared the school, I leaned over and told my mom I wasn’t going; I just wasn’t up to it.
Although she reassured me that everything was going to be okay, secretly she wondered how my classmates would react, too.
And remember that today is your day. Live Inspired.
