"Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. Its an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It's a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing."
How much do you love this Adidas campaign? I love the idea that "Impossible is not a fact. Impossible is an opinion." It encapsulates everything I try to teach my clients. Our opinions may seem like facts only because we have spent our lives trying to prove them true. We are on the hunt for evidence that what we believe is, in fact, fact.
But sometimes we are very very wrong. Sometimes we have picked up belief systems that don't serve us and are outdated. We recycle these beliefs and convince ourselves that we are "right" to believe them. When what we should be doing is disproving any of our beliefs that don't serve us.
"I will always be fat" is not a fact.
"I will always be fat" is an opinion.
Are you willing to change your opinion?
