Challenges come in all shapes and sizes. Sometimes the solution is obvious and other times is shrouded in our limited world view. It takes a visionary, a committed leader, and a Maverick to fully understand that most seemingly physical obstacles are merely mental barriers. What seems impossible is rarely a dead end.
Several years ago, Adidas released a provocative campaign on this very topic:
Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small people who find it easier to live in the world they’ve been given than explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It’s an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It’s a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary.
Challenges are commonplace. Sticking with them long enough for a breakthrough is not. “It’s not that I’m so smart,” Albert Einstein once admitted, “it’s just that I stay with problems longer.”
Results may not happen overnight, but that never means they won’t happen at all.
Be a Maverick,
