Make The Impossible Possible

Updated: Sep 5, 2019


If you can see it in your mind, if you imagine it, if a little voice inside tells you it is possible! then, who do you allow to stop you? Who do you authorize to limit your dreams? All barriers and stops have your permission first or the people you permit to dissuade u. Because the only limits that exist are the ones in your own mind.





Listen to the words of The First Female to ascend Mount Everest, the first Olympian to be awarded a Perfect 10, the first African American to be sworn in as President of the U.S, the first blind Entrepreneur to become a Travel guide, the first female to fly over the Atlantic in 1928, the orphan who pioneered the microcomputer revolution, the African American janitor who discovered the cure to Blue Baby Syndrome without any formal education and several more.


Against all odds and through the harshest circumstances they persevered in their dreams. If they saw the limits of their surroundings, the 'nay sayers' or even the segregation that surrounded them they would never brought our country to where we find ourselves.


What each of these individuals did was to look inside their heart.


We are each born with unique gifts. We all bear the same light in us. So, don't be enslaved to another man's dream, don't be afraid to SOAR, follow your heart.


If you feel downtrodden while achieving your goal or know someone who feels hopeless today, please share this spark with them so they can let their light light shine brighter.
