“Impossible” is a word that says so much in 10 letters. A word that can make someone stand up and fight and a word that can absolutely destroy a person and their aspirations. Impossible in it’s most basic state is a word that can evoke so much passion or devastation just by itself that more often than not people stray away from using it. Impossible, though, is a word that should be seen as a battle and a challenge of your will and dexterity. Something that I learned not too long ago, impossible is what you make of it, if you believe something will be or is impossible, it will undoubtedly be impossible. However, if you take what you’ve been told is impossible and battle for whatever it is, you can possibly show the world something incredible! Impossible is a challenge, it’s a chance to step up to the plate and claim what’s yours and what you desire. It’s a chance to face your fears and doubts and destroy them. Will you fail during your quest of the impossible? Possibly. Will you want to quit? Maybe. Will it challenge you every step of the way and force you to dig into yourself and pull out every ounce of strength and determination you have? Absolutely. But as I said before, failure is part of life, it’s what you take from your failures and apply to your life that defines you as a person. Every failure has it’s bright side, every loss has it’s silver lining, and every missed opportunity has another chance waiting somewhere. If you go into life believing you can conquer the world with perseverance and determination, you will. If you go into the world believing things are impossible and you will fail no matter what, you will. If you honestly can say nothing is impossible and impossible is nothing and truly believe that, you can accomplish amazing things. It’s up to each individual to figure out those “impossible” things in their lives and to choose whether or not you want what the world says you can’t have. Is it worth the fight, the battle, the blood, sweat, and tears, or will you allow people to dictate your life by saying you can’t accomplish something? Choose your battles and pick the ones worth fighting for and believe nothing is impossible, because if you truly want something it’s not impossible. It’s just up to you to figure out what exactly it is you want and to show the world nothing is impossible and to show everyone why can be done through sheer determination.
