When life gives us a downpour of tasks, deadlines or situations that seem too difficult to handle I try to remember this quote.
“Start by doing what’s necessary, then what’s possible, and suddenly you are doing the impossible.”
St Francis of Assisi
We all need encouragement from time to time especially when we’re faced with ‘mountains’ which we believe can’t be moved.
To believe a thing impossible is to make it so. French Proverb
Impossible only means that you haven’t found the solution yet. Anonymous
Nothing is impossible, the word itself says ‘I’m possible’! Audrey Hepburn
Never tell a young person that anything cannot be done. God may have been waiting centuries for someone ignorant enough of the impossible to do that very thing. G. M. Trevelyan
I’m not always quick to remember these quotes but I do try, and when I remember I do find it easier to deal with the ‘mountain’. One small step after another and before you know it the job is done and sometimes you’ve accomplished something way beyond your expectations. It is so true when St. Francis finished off his quote by saying ‘and suddenly you are doing the impossible’.
It’s also true when Walt Disney said
“It’s kind of fun to do the impossible.”
Encourage one another.
