I have found the best way to give advice to your children is to find out what they want and then advise them to do it.

Most things that seem impossible are not really impossible. They are simply possibilities which we have not yet developed enough imagination to fully express. Many of the things we take for granted today were considered impossible a few hundred years ago. Yet they were just as possible then as they are commonplace today.

There are possibilities that exist right now which have never even been imagined. There are things widely considered impossible which are most certainly possible. There are assumed limitations which are not really limitations at all. They exert their limiting influence only because of how they’re perceived.

Think of something you consider to be impossible for you. Now, imagine that it is possible. Can you see it in your mind? When you can, you’re on your way toward making the impossible possible.

It is easy to dismiss something as impossible. It is much more difficult to put forth the effort that will make it a reality. Thankfully, there are people willing to make that effort. Let yourself be one of them, and you’ll bring many new and wonderful things to life.

— Ralph Marston
