Achieving the impossible

“Ever heard the saying, ‘It always seems impossible until it’s done’? Well, it’s more than just a saying. It’s a reality for many.”

In this article, I will discuss five things you can do to make what seems impossible possible.

Take the German surfer Sebastian Steudtner, who recently set a world record by surfing a staggering 150-foot wave in Portugal. That’s not just surfing; it was only possible once he did it.

But what sets Sebastian and countless others apart from those who merely dream? MINDSET. That burning belief deep down inside that says, ‘I can.’

People who achieve the impossible push. They persist. They practice. They learn, adapt, and keep going and are driven by an unwavering belief in themselves.

And let’s get one thing straight: the “impossible” doesn’t always mean breaking world records or making headlines.

Every day around you, people are achieving their own impossible, whether it’s mastering a new skill, overcoming a personal fear, repairing a relationship, or simply taking that first step toward a dream.
Developing a mindset toward achieving the impossible involves fostering resilience, confidence, and a positive attitude toward challenges. Here are five actionable steps individuals can take:

  1. Embrace Growth Mindset: Embrace challenges and see failures not as evidence that “you’re not good enough” but as a heartening springboard for growth, stretching, and improving your existing abilities. Your mindset has an enormous effect on your personal growth.
  2. Visualize Success: Regularly take some time to visualize achieving your goals. This act can build neural pathways in the brain, making it easier to reach the real thing.
  3. Learn & improve: Embrace learning as a lifelong journey. Continuously educate yourself, seek new experiences, and be open to new information. This equips you with knowledge and instills a belief that you can adapt and grow, no matter the situation.
  4. Surround Yourself with Positivity: Engage with positive influences and role models. Whether it’s books, podcasts, mentors, or like-minded friends, surrounding yourself with optimistic and forward-thinking individuals can elevate your mindset.
  5. Set Small, Achievable Goals: Start by setting smaller, tangible goals that lead to the bigger ‘impossible’ ones. Every time you achieve a small goal, it boosts your confidence and reinforces your belief in your ability to tackle more considerable challenges.

Remember this: every impossibility is merely a challenge waiting for someone with the right mindset to come along. Take advantage of opportunities; create them. Because the impossible? Well, it starts with ‘I’m possible.

The next time you are faced with a challenge or something that seems impossible to do or overcome, ask yourself, remember, it’s only impossible until you do it.

So, get out there and ACHIEVE YOUR IMPOSSIBLE!
