“Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they’ve bene 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.” - Muhammad Ali

If you’ve ever been told ‘surgery is inevitable’, ‘you’ll always have pain’, or ‘you’ll never _____ again’, maybe it’s true. But maybe it’s not. Because something is rare, or a particular course usually follows a presentation doesn’t make it certain.
The first step is to be bold and challenge current understanding with future potential. Accept the discomfort that accompanies the failures of trying something new. Decide to persevere.
The great conspiracy throughout all space and time that must have taken place for us to exist right here and right now is about as close as mathematics gets to “impossible.” I assure you it’s not. Why? Because we do exist here and now.
Let’s walk or run again. Let’s participate actively in the lives we’ve been given.Let’s do the “impossible.”
