re001: Welcome to the Repossible podcast!
There’s no better place to get started than the beginning.
So here we go.
The difference between the impossible and the possible lies in a man’s determination.
What do you believe is possible? What do you believe is impossible? What do you believe is possible for you?
Do you believe that your dream, your passion, your goal, your whatever-you-want-to-call it, is possible or impossible?
I no longer see possible and impossible as black and white, yes or no, zeros and ones. There is a third path. A method, a mindset, that finds another way around impossible and yet slides by the possible. It’s not necessarily better or worse, but it’s from another perspective, from a new perspective.
Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.
George Bernard Shaw
It’s a mindset, a way of life. It’s not a finite road, but an infinite journey. When the answer isn’t so cut and dried, where I need a new take on the challenge to see another way in–or out. It’s OK to move the goalposts, change the rules of the game. It’s OK to change the game.
But it is a game and the name of the game is: repossible.
Start by doing what’s necessary; then do what’s possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible.
Francis of Assisi
Repossible is a different perspective from where you see different challenges and even different goals.
If Possible is walking straight ahead from the junction in the middle of the desert and Impossible is refusing to go anywhere, sitting down in the dust in a pout and waiting for someone to come pick you up, then Repossible is looking around, seeing things with fresh perspective, and realizing that there is a drinking fountain that just rose up out of a mirage. With sparkling water.
Repossible, yes, it’s true, has a sense of humor.
Repossible, and I’m not sure how else to say this, doesn’t really care so much about the other two guys in the desert: Possible and Impossible. He’s not on their team. He’s not in their league. He doesn’t even play the same game.
It’s a new game and it’s repossible.
I’m going to leave it at that.
