Impossible Opportunity

What An Opportunity!

Yes, our lives may seem difficult, yet every difficulty, every “impossibility” is an opportunity that can be handled brilliantly.

One person who faced what seemed like impossible odds was born to drug addicted parents,  who eventually died of AIDS, was hungry most of the time and did not attend school very often: when she did she was ostracized because she was dirty and wore torn clothes. It is hard to imagine a much harder childhood. She was living on the streets at 15 years of age, yet rose above it to attend Harvard on a full scholarship and has since become a motivational speaker. You can read Liz Murray’s story (Title: Breaking Night) or view it.

 

Many other situations have also seemed impossible. Many people still alive never thought that human beings would walk on the moon in their lifetime.  Orville and Wright had to overcome a great deal of scepticism to bring their vision of a flying machine into being.  Nowadays we take aeroplanes for granted. Even motor cars have only been around for about 120 years and were originally termed “horseless carriages”, with people believing that horse drawn transport would never disappear, whereas nowadays it is mostly for pleasure.

The Best Advice

The Best Advice

Don’t give advice but if you do, this is the best advice ever given. You can only start where you are. Not like the man who, when asked for directions to a distant large town said, “Well if I were going there, I wouldn’t start from here!” Here and now is the only place we ever have. We can’t start yesterday, even if that would have been the best option. And we cannot start tomorrow, because, “tomorrow never comes”, by the time we get there, it’s today and the here and now.

 
 

Use what you have? Do what you can? We all have different talents. What I can do, may be hard for you and what you can do may seem impossible to me. But we can all succeed in our own ways, by using what we have and can do.
