Nothing in this world is impossible. Whatever has already been done, can be done by anyone – and whatever hasn’t been done yet, is waiting to be discovered by someone. If it wasn’t for the vision of the Wright brothers, what would have become of the airplane? Would we still be flying all across the world in a matter of a few hours? And if it wasn’t for Edison’s countless tries, would we still have the lightbulb to light up our lives?

The history of mankind proves to us that there’s nothing we cannot do, that the people who persist and have the right mindset, the right enthusiasm, and the endless will to make it, will eventually succeed in whatever they take on – whether it’s been done before or not. All you need is a vision and whole lot of willpower.

So what do you want to do this year?

If it’s already been done and tested by others, what are you waiting for? And if it’s yet to be done, you better get working! Don’t let your mind hold you back – that’s really the only thing that can stop you. Instead, know that everything in this universe is in your hands. You just need to reach out and grasp it.
