Impossible is an opinion

 

Long ago I came across a quote from Adidas that goes like “Impossible is an opinion.” This has proved to be true. Let me give you an example.

I am athletic and yes I like running but I have never ran in a marathon. So in 2012, I signed up for my first half marathon. Before I ran the race, I never believed that I could actually finish the 21km race. For training, the most I ran is like 10km and the longest was for 45 minutes long. I practiced and practiced, I pushed myself to run for more than an hour but my body was defeated. So a couple of days before the race, it was almost impossible to see myself finish a race. I ran and I did finish it. My first record was 2:08 minutes.

So this year I took up the challenge once again. My goal was to best my previous record. Finish the race within 2 hours.

I did it again. I finished the race in 1:50 minutes.

2 races which I thought was impossible a couple of years ago but proved to be wrong. There are many goals that seems impossible, but I have learned that you have to go out and give it a shot. Most of the times, the impossible becomes the possible. And that experience will give you the confidence to conquer your next goal or the impossible.

Just do it.
