Just because your dream looks impossible, doesn’t mean it is.

If you’ve been told that your dream is impossible, don’t be discouraged, you are in very good company.

Jim Abbott was told that it was impossible for him to ever become a major league baseball pitcher because he was born without a right hand.

He chose not to listen. In 1993, as a member of the New York Yankees, he threw a no-hitter against the Cleveland Indians.

Diana Nyad was told that no swimmer would ever make it all the way from Cuba to Florida. Just not going to happen.

She chose not to listen. In 2013, on her fifth attempt and at age 64, she became the first person confirmed to swim from Cuba to Florida without the aid of a shark cage, swimming 110 miles from Havana to Key West.

In India, Dashrath Manjhi was called a lunatic and was told that it was impossible to carve a road through a mountain with just a hammer and chisel.

He chose not to listen. 22 years later, he had carved a path 360-foot-long, 25-foot-deep in places and 30-foot-wide, to form a road through the rocks in the Gehlour Hill to give the people of his village better access to doctors, education and opportunities.

Every amazing accomplishment was thought to be impossible until someone did it.

“The biggest risk is not taking any risk… In a world that is changing really quickly, the only strategy that is guaranteed to fail is not taking risks.”

Mark Zuckerberg, Creator of Facebook
