An apostrophe (‘) and a space ( ) make all the difference…
A dot with a little hook and nothing at all. Two things that seem non-essential, yet are very profound when we allow them to be.
I remember the first time I heard the shift from “impossible” to “I’m possible”. It caught me by surprise and naturally I thought how stupid it was. It’s just a silly play on words. It can’t possibly make that much of a difference. Besides, “I’m Possible” doesn’t make much sense anyway.
Or so I thought.
We are conditioned on so many things and one of them is to see the word impossible and allow it to stop us. If we are told that something is impossible, often we don’t question the validity and instead just assume that it holds true.
Yesterday we celebrated Martin Luther King, Jr. day and I’m certain that he heard the word impossible many times throughout his short life. Imagine what a difference it would make if he didn’t realize that what he wanted to do was possible, he just needed to insert himself (I’m).
“Nothing is impossible, the word itself says “I’m possible!” ~ Audrey Hepburn
When we shift from impossible to asking what is possible, we shift from stopping to going. We shift from no options to an open book. By simply adding an apostrophe and a space, our entire world opens up to new possibilities.
Instead of focusing on the conditioning that we grew up with, focus instead on the possibility. Focus on the “I’m” in impossible. You ARE possible. In fact, you are the only thing that matters. The world needs you now and it is up to you to add the apostrophe and the space.
