I was working with someone who was facing what appeared to be an impossible task ahead of him. He worked and worked and worked, yet he didn’t achieve his objective. A few months later, he called to tell me that he achieved his goal. I was super curious what changed. “It’s pretty amazing,” he told me. “Once one of my friends achieved this goal, I knew it was possible.”
I find it fascinating that the big barrier to my friend’s accomplishment was that no one had done it before. Once it was no longer “impossible”, he created a victory.
Have a good day,
