Do what can’t be done

Do they say it can’t be done? Then find a way to do it. Anything that is considered impossible is an opportunity waiting to be harvested. Just imagine the incredible power of being able to say “I can” when everyone else is saying “I can’t.”

"I can’t” usually means “I won’t.” Be the person who will, and a world of opportunity opens up to you. It is easy to say “no,” to avoid the challenge and the effort. Success comes to those who say “yes,” and then set about to make it happen.

Complaints and excuses will keep you imprisoned in a tedious world of mediocrity. Yet what is impossible for others, does not have to be for you. Welcome the challenges. Take the initiative. Feel the satisfaction of accomplishing that which has never before been attempted.

Look for things which can’t or won’t be done. Be the one who makes them happen, and reap their enormous value.

— Ralph Marston
