The great boxer, Muhammad Ali, had a good handle on the impossible. He fought his way through his impossibilites and became the heavyweight champion of the world.
For him, impossiblity was a dare. It was a challenge that he faced, dominated, and defeated. Muhammad Ali understood impossibility better than most, and he defined it in a way that anyone can understand.
“Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to 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. Impossible is nothing.”
It turns out the impossible is not always impossible.
Impossible dares you to live your dreams.
It's a test of whether you are willing to do whatever it takes to make your dreams come true.
Everything in your life fits into two columns.
One column is labeled possible, and the other is labeled impossible.
Your job is to move everything over to the possible column.
With God, all things are possible. Impossible doesn't exist in God's universe, and it shouldn't exist in yours.
Impossible is not in God's vocabulary, and it shouldn't be in yours.
Jesus did not believe in impossible and neither should you.
On more than one occasion, Jesus said, "All things are possible", and "nothing is impossible." Jesus said it both ways to make it clear that everything is possible when you believe.
Jesus meant it when he said that all things are possible. He wasn't trying to frustrate you by encouraging you to pursue impossible dreams. He was telling you to get in agreement with God so that all things are possible in your life.
Everything is possible isn't a pipedream. It's the way God made things work. As you believe, so shall it be done unto you.
It is time to take the impossible dare and do those things you used to think were impossible.
For my entire life, I have been moving things from the impossible column over to the possible one.
Half way through university, I looked impossibility in the eye and changed my major to premed. I navigated the seas of impossibility for two years before I was accepted into medical school, and I moved medical school into the possibility column.
For four years of hard study, I climbed what seemed like an impossible mountain of anatomy, physiology, and clinical medicine until I became a doctor.
For four more years, I ascended a mountain of ophthalmic knowledge to become a board certified eye surgeon with a sub-specialty in retina and vitreous surgery.
When I was run over by the Mac Truck of Life and nearly died in a car accident, I spent months slogging though the Dismal Swamp of Discouragement, but I never stopped looking impossiblity in the eye, and I never surrendered to despair.
When I decided to sail around the world on my catamaran with my family, I sailed on the Seas of Impossibility for eleven years until the circumnavigation was complete.
For ten years I took the impossible dare as I wrote books on positive thinking and positive spirituality.
For the rest of my life, my Impossible Dare is to make the Positive Thinking Network the home of positive thinking on the world wide web. It's the premier place where people come from all nations to learn about positive thinking.
The Positive Thinking Network shows them how to have a positive mind and a positive life. They learn how to conquer depression and how to install a Positive Operating System. People master "Maximum Strength Positive Thinking", and they fill their minds with Positive Power Graphics. They listen to Positive Podcasts that change the way they think and feel. The Positive Thinking Network continues to look impossiblity in the eye as it changes the world one person at a time.
I am well acquainted with impossibility. It has been my constant companion for more than six decades.
Here are a few highlights of things I have moved from the impossible column over to the possible one.
The impossible dare is all about living your dreams.
It's time to take the impossible dare.
Your life will never be the same.

Social media is more of a jungle than a finely manicured garden. It's a rough and tumble experience with lots of chaff and little wheat.Too much of it is a Twilight Zone run by people with their own agenda, and most of time their agenda is at odds with your own. If you don't periodically curate your feeds, you drown in a sea of trivialities, opinions, and toxic waste. No Unsocial Media is different because it makes it easy to find the good stuff and avoid the bad. It has dozens of links that quickly and easily help you discover positive content.
