So in one week we hear about an 11-year-old going to college and a 64-year-old swimming over 100 miles. This is not about education or physical activity. This is about excuses. What excuses do we have? No matter how young or seasoned you might be there is a dream that is in your mind and more important you spirit that you are being called to fulfill. Diana, who is an accomplished businesswomen and not a professional swimmer failed four times in 35 years before reaching her goal. What was that thing you stopped believing was possible and put in the back of your mind? What is that thing you just told your child or a young person in your life wasn’t possible?
Family…..God…and if that is not your belief, the universe, has provided us with amazing gifts, that many of us seldom use. Dreams and visions are usually not fantasy. They are our subconscious providing us with a picture of both our possibility and promise. Stop talking about what you can’t do, or create and start doing it. Challenge the young people in your life to push for the impossible. Diana Nyad’s mantra was Find A Way. Carson is seeing what others refuse to see as possible. Let’s all do both without fear. Because you gotta realize family, failing on your face still moves you closer to your dream than standing still on your feet.
Dream Big – See the impossible – And no matter the age, know that GOD and the gifts you were given at birth are bigger than any challenge you will ever face.
