Work on it

Though your dream at first seems impossible, work on it anyway, and it goes from being impossible to improbable. Even so, it is still not very likely, for though it might could happen, it also might not. Work on it anyway. And with each effort it becomes more and more likely.

Work with persistence, with faith, with focus and passion. Keep working on what you believe in, on what you can see even though no one else may completely share your vision. Work on it anyway, and it goes from being impossible, to being improbable, to being truly likely to happen. And when you get to that point, where you can see it beginning to happen, keep working on it anyway, for now is not the time to stop.

When you’re almost there, about to reach the goal, and the bottom gets pulled out from under you, work on it anyway. The faster you recover from setbacks, the faster you’ll get where you’re going.

Whatever comes your way, good or bad, helpful or hindering, work on moving forward anyway. Your commitment to the best of what can be has the ability to outweigh and overpower whatever may be standing in your way. In response to every situation, find a way to work on it anyway and you’ll find a way to bring the best of your possibilities to life.
