Things aren’t impossible on their own, our thinking makes them so.
Impossible is not about the thing itself, it’s a statement about our state of mind.
When we say impossible, we really say we lack confidence to try.
When we say impossible, we really say we are too afraid to try.
The mission of impossible is to shut down all possibility of possibility.
To soften it, we say almost impossible, but it’s the same thing.
When we say impossible, we make a big judgment – but not about the thing – about ourselves.
