In Lewis Carroll’s famous masterpiece “Alice through the Looking Glass,” there is a dialogue between the main character- Alice and the Queen, who has just said something quite extraordinary.
I can’t believe it – says Alice.
Can’t believe it? – the Queen repeats with a sad look on her face. – Try again: take a deep breath, close your eyes, and believe.
It’s no good trying. Only fools believe that impossible things can happen.
I think what you need is a little training – answers the Queen. – When I was your age I would practice at least half an hour a day, right after breakfast, I tried very hard to imagine five or six unbelievable things that could cross my path, and today I see that most of the things I imagined have turned real, I even became a Queen because of that.
I think we all need some training or retraining on how to believe in the ‘impossible’. I like what Mike Norton wrote when he said:
“Never say that you can’t do something, or that something seems impossible, or that something can’t be done, no matter how discouraging or harrowing it may be; human beings are limited only by what we allow ourselves to be limited by: our own minds. We are each the masters of our own reality; when we become self-aware to this: absolutely anything in the world is possible.
Master yourself, and become king of the world around you. Let no odds, chastisement, exile, doubt, fear, or ANY mental virii prevent you from accomplishing your dreams. Never be a victim of life; be it’s conqueror.”
What you call ‘impossible’ is only defined by your mind. Maybe if you learn to believe more things are possible, it’s possble you will see a different result than you are currently seeing.
