Learning about ordinary people doing extraordinary things with their lives is inspiring.
Listening to their story on how they make the impossible, possible by trusting their own capabilities in the face of fear sheds light on how we can bust through our own beliefs of what we can achieve.
In the documentary 14 Peaks (on Netflix), a mountaineer envisioned a plan of climbing the world’s 14 highest peaks of 8000 meters or more in 1 year.
Everyone thought this idea was crazy.
Some even called it an impossible project.
The mountaineer believed in himself and trusted he had the resources available in order to successfully complete his plan.
He called it, the “Project Possible”.
His story, like so many who climb mountains, face a risk to their life.
The human brain doesn’t distinguish between a real or perceived threat. Fear based thoughts become beliefs because we choose to make them a reality.
You talk yourself out of doing something because your brain says, “DANGER”.
An ordinary person achieving something extraordinary think about things differently.
The common thread weaving through these stories of exceptionalism is not that they are fearless, but rather, they are in control of their own thoughts which drive their actions.
They make the choice even in spite of others around them saying “this can’t be done” or “that’s a crazy idea” or “how will you survive”.
They trust themselves to know they will be able to remain solution focused because they believe in themselves to know what they can achieve.
For you, taking a leap of faith in starting your own small business or starting a new career or just learning something new as a pet parent can appear to be unattainable.
But isn’t that just fear creeping in influencing your choice making?
What if you chose to believe you can attain your dreams just as easily as you talk yourself out of them.
Coming up with ideas and plans for what you want, starts with a vision.
Creating a vision for what you want, you can start choosing what you want to believe is your Possible Project.
When you lay out your vision and are reminded daily about what you want more of in your life, this will be your focus to keep going in the face of others or even yourself attempting to usurp your goals.
