It may not be likely, but is it possible?
This question deserves consideration.
“Impossible” is a limiting belief. How do limiting beliefs affect people? People won’t try “impossible” things because they don’t want to fail. Why don’t people want to fail? Because they don’t want to feel rejected, down on themselves, and perceived as a loser. This typical thinking is what keeps people from taking risk and going for it.
Here is another way of thinking for your consideration.
"The only true failure is the failure to engage. Success in this world is defined as participation and learning, which consists of effort, growth, mistakes, and experimentation. The only way to lose the game is to quit. As you continue to play the game and learn, you are winning. In this new world of possibility, other people’s evaluation of you is a non-issue. Rejection is rejected. (By the way, rejection only ever exists as a story in your mind). Therefore, self-belief and confidence are not necessary before going for it. In this world, everything is interesting and worth trying. Satisfaction comes from being curious, taking action, observing, experimenting, and improving through practice. Mistakes are embraced as learnings and celebrated as part of the growth process.
What might happen if you created such a world for your employees? How about for your children, your business associates, your spouse, and yourself? What if you chose to accept yourself and others as they are, and celebrated their effort? What might happen?
I invite you to create and experience this world of possibility. It is a place where you will discover new and amazing things about yourself and others. You will awaken to another level of learning and growth, and the fear of failure is banished. Try it out. Do it for fun. Choose to go for something that seems impossible. Leave your armchair of moldy wishes and dying hope, and get up and go make some mistakes! In a world of possibility, it’s about having fun and enjoying the journey.
Footnote: In this new world, people improve their performance faster because they participate, practice, and learn. What a paradox!
