Yesterday’s post about doing impossible acts spawned some comments . I’m going to clarify bit further what I meant by the post.
I believe any imaginable outcome is possible
I belong to the group that thinks there is no such thing as impossible if given enough time- and if you look at the outcome or results. I’m quite aware that some ways to achieve the results might be impossible or temporarily unavailable, but I believe there’s always some alternative ways to achieve what we want.
Let’s take an example: let’s suppose somebody wants to fly from one continent to another using just his arms. The guy might be waving his arms really fast, but I’m pretty confident he won’t be able to fly (at least not very far). So this specific way of achieving the results might be temporarily unavailable. (I say temporarily because who knows what kind of wings evolution might give us). But, if the guy realizes that waving his arms won’t get him very far and concentrates on buying a ticket to an airplane, he can fly where he wanted. The result – flying from one continent to another – can be achieved.
Let’s suppose some really poor person wants to be a millionaire. While it might not be possible to become a millionaire doing the things she has done so far, there’s lots of other people who are millionaires. That’s why I see know reason why she couldn’t become one too. It might take some time, but if she models millionaires, focuses on her goal, thinks like millionaires and does what millionaires do – eventually she’ll become a millionaire.
If somebody wants to get a job in the gaming industry, he can achieve that. I’m not saying it will happen in the company where you wanted and in the time frame you wanted, but I’m confident that there’s no reason why he couldn’t get a dream job in the industry.
If somebody wants to create a hit game, I’m 100% she can. Maybe she cannot do that alone, maybe she is focusing on a wrong genre, maybe her marketing skills are poor – but if she 100% concentrates on creating a hit game and openly looks for opportunities, I see no reason why she couldn’t achieve her goals. Others have done it, so what’s stopping her?
How do you achieve the impossible
Billionaire Donald Trump has a formula for success, and I kind of like his 2-step ‘program’ (it works in other areas than just money):
#1: Do what you love
#2: Never quit
Simple, yet brilliant piece of an advice for anyone who wishes to achieve the impossible.
