In this edition of Motivational Monday I found this great completion of some of the “people are awesome” videos. It’s a pretty long video but it’s packed full of incredible, amazing, awe inspiring, shocking, and just down right unbelievable things!
But I really think it should be titled, “LIFE is awesome!”.
This video represents the undying power of the human spirit to push the edges of what’s possible so hard, the edges of what’s possible and not possible actually expand. The power of the human will to achieve ANYTHING that is driven from passion.
And the inspiration of the very powerful distinction that just because someone says you can’t, doesn’t mean you can’t try. Because it’s through trying and taking those chances (taking action) and trying again and again and again the skill and ability required to actually DO and do successfully is forged.
And all of that is created through something as simple as your mindset!
And if you don’t think it’s possible for you, whatever it is in life that you want, whether that be a successful business, a great marriage, or even just a fulfilling life, tell me one thing.
Why not? Why is it impossible for you? What is it about your mindset that blocks the idea of your life being exactly how you want it?
Think it’s impossible to smoke a cigar underwater?
What about ride a skateboard underwater?
How about drive a Formula 1 race car on snow?
Or race kayaks on snow?
Maybe riding a motorcycle across a swimming pool and making it to the other side is impossible?
In this video there are a lot of things that, in casual conversations, would be dismissed as not really possible.
And none of things were real until someone actually did them because they decided to try until they did. They may not have started of with the mindset of certainty but they certainly stared off with the mindset of “maybe” and if there is a maybe, that means it’s not impossible!
What does that mean for you?
Well, going into the new year you have a choice.
You can adopt the mindset that anything in life you want is possible. But not just possible, I mean possible for you.
You can watch your life unfold with a mindset that it’s impossible for you to achieve what you want.
I don’t know where you’re at, what your circumstances are, or what challenges you face. But I do know that whether you are already progressing towards your goals and dreams in life, or your goals and dreams in life are just a faded memory of what you once believed was possible for you, all it takes is action that is driven from a mindset of at least maybe!
So you don’t need to have the mindset of people who have been doing things for years or the level of confidence that comes only from overcoming failure and continuing to push forward…
You can start NOW and whether that means picking up the pieces of a broken dream and putting them back together one piece at a time or, cranking up the heat to your already intense momentum towards your ultimate success, you can start now!
You can watch these amazing people doing amazing things, some of which seem impossible, and think to yourself, “Well, that’s great for them but I can’t do anything like that..”.
Either way, whatever perspective you take, understand that is YOUR perspective, YOUR choice, and YOUR destiny that is affected by that choice and YOU can change that anytime you choose.
The secret is to realize that these people, or any people that have created great success or done anything incredible, didn’t just wake up one day and have these abilities.
They started at the beginning, just like everyone else, and through dedication, persistence, hard work, and never letting the thousands of failures they experienced stop them, they progressed into the people who have these amazing talents, skills, and abilities today.
And probably the biggest distinction to make here is this:
As long as you’re alive, you have the opportunity to LIVE…
Focus your mindset on living with passion, adventure, excitement, and FUN going into 2014. Because if enough of us do that, it will not only increase the quality of your own life, it will make the world a better place for all of us!
