993. Anything is Possible.

The more impossible it sounds the better.

The more impossible it sounds, the more excuses people will create.

The more impossible it sounds, the less competition you will face.

There are only a handful of people who have the courage to dream big and shoot for the stars. The rest of us have excuses.

Tim Ferriss emphasizes this perfectly in his book The Four Hour Work Week:

 99% of people in the world are convinced they are incapable of achieving great things, so they aim for the mediocre. The level of competition is thus fiercest for ‘realistic’ goals, paradoxically making them the most time-and energy-consuming.

All that stands between us and our dreams is the excuses we make.

Take comfort in knowing that your brain will never fail you when it comes to making up excuses.  Thank it for sharing and being so reliable, then move forward and reach for the stars.

    Leo,

    I dig this.

    I think courage to try and fail is the first step in reaching one’s goals.

    Keep on rockin’!
