Kirk’s post about Ignoring Naysayers hit a home run in my book.

In it, Kirk shared the following quote (from an ad for Adidas, of all things):

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.

So, go ahead . . . dream the impossible dream!

Along the same lines is one of my favorite poems by one of my favorite poets:

Listen to the mustn’ts child. Listen to the don’ts.
Listen to the shouldn’t haves, the impossibles, the won’ts.
Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me.
Mickey-Ta-DaaaAnything can happen child.  Anything can be.

~ Shel Silverstein

For another brilliant poem about ignoring the impossibles ~ Shame on “Should” (I Am Who I Am).

Aah . . . that’s better!
