If you are going to dream at all – you might as well dream big right! Are you dreaming the impossible? If every-body had goals that were possible, wouldn’t we be living in a terribly dull world?
But the dullness would probably only be the start of things, there would be no cures to illnesses, no new countries ever found, no mountains climbed, no men on the moon, no automobiles, or aeroplanes or running water or light at the flick of a switch.
Have you ever thought about that? If everyone only dreamed the possible, the realistic the ordinary the down-to-earth, matter of fact, practical things how would life ever progress?
Inventions are very rarely just Stumbledupon, they come from dreaming about something that is intangible to everyone else on the planet but which you have an undeniable belief in. The Wright Brothers didn’t just hop in a tin bird and take off in the sky and Thomas Edison didn’t just pick up the first filament he could find and he presto build a lightbulb!
“I speak without exaggeration when I say that I have constructed 3,000 different theories in connection with the electric light, each one of them reasonable and apparently likely to be true. Yet only in two cases did my experiments prove the truth of my theory.”
Quoted in “Talks with Edison” by George Parsons Lathrop in Harpers magazine, Vol. 80 (February 1890), p. 425″
How honestly can you say you tried 3000 times to do something because you believed the impossible was actually possible? Being unrealistic is what makes life worth living. When someone tell me I am being unrealistic I feel quite happy with myself, I mean who would ever want to be unrealistic sounds like a pretty boring way to live to me. I found this video on YouTube that you might like.
Next time someone tells you you’re being unrealistic, cross them off your list, pat yourself on the back and feel ever so smug inside. The Impossible should be what excites you, what makes you excel, achieve and dream and what will one day have you leave your stamp in this world. When are you going to have you Lightbulb moment?
Believe the Impossible,
