Every time my 6th grader says something is impossible, I show him this picture.
And, then the paradigm shifts and it becomes possible, duplicatable, widely accepted, believed. There are lessons everywhere if you take a minute to look around you.
What do you see?
How about convincing stores to swipe a plastic card with the promise of getting paid for items already taken?
More importantly, what feels impossible to you?
It doesn’t need to be a huge accomplishment. What if you ignore the fact that you haven’t done it before and the naysayers, and continue to try? Imagine how it will feel when you succeed.
