Attract the Right Job Or Clientele:
As we announce what we are about to do, most of us will hear others say to us, ‘that’s impossible!’ Maybe it is impossible, or perhaps it won’t be if we honker down to make that ‘something’ become our reality. What matters most is when we believe the impossible to be possible.
We frequently hear predictions about a sports team impending loss as it is impossible for them to beat the other team. Yet, somehow, the least favored team proves they are capable. The same applies to our career, entrepreneurial endeavors, and wildly creative ideas. Fortunately, some become immune to the negativity around us and continue on our path. We learn to ignore the harsh commentary.
Success mandates that we begin to believe the impossible to be possible.
Recent news highlights remarkable individuals who have made ‘impossible’ strides in their careers. These two stories are shared to encourage you to hold onto your dreams and pursue your heart’s content. The first story is about a woman of color, making history within the US Naval Academy’s study body. And the second story is about the children of poor Turkish immigrants to Germany who started BioNTech in 2008.
Story #1: CNN released the story that a Black woman will lead the US Naval Academy’s student body for the first time in its history. Midshipman 1st Class Sydney Barber, a mechanical engineering major from Lake Forest, Illinois, has been named brigade commander for the spring semester — the academy’s highest student leadership position, the Naval Academy said in a news release Monday.
Barber is on the track team, holds leadership positions in multiple student organizations, and aspires to be a Marine Corps ground officer. In her words, “Earning the title of brigade commander speaks volumes, but the title itself is not nearly as significant as the opportunity it brings to lead a team in doing something I believe will be truly special,” Barber said in the release. “I am humbled to play a small role in this momentous season of American history.”
Story #2: On November 13, 2020, according to the Washington Post, Ugur Sahin and Ozlem Tureci, children of Turkish Immigrants to Germany, started BioNTech in 2008. The firm’s coronavirus vaccine drew attention this week when Pfizer said an interim analysis showed it to be 90 percent effective. The couple didn’t own a car and took only one morning off to marry, are now billionaires. On a side note, no one would have predicted that the couple would achieve what they did and what they will in terms of the many more lives’ potentially saved.
I always attempt to apply the day to business news, whether politics or new inventions and trends. And with fingers crossed, every day, I hope we realize the need to make way for inclusiveness and elimination of bullying or talking down to people. I’m hopeful that we will find the way for all lives and ideas to matter.
The irony of none of the above happening yet in corporate America portrays the opposite of how we are to conduct business. One underlying principle is that of being adept at negotiation. When we allow judgments and falsehoods to take center stage, negotiation is negligible, if at all. On the other hand, by welcoming various diverse opinions and insights, we develop a more comprehensive approach and outcome. Negotiation becomes nothing more than a friendly and helpful conversation.
Often, when I speak of everyone having an equal voice, I hear dismissive tones of voice. No one understands how I can believe the impossible to be possible. It takes the majority of us to stand together to demonstrate our capabilities. Equally important is to acknowledge the thread of accomplishments and share those of one another.

Your Story: Do You Believe The Impossible To Be Possible?
Now is the time to admit to yourself whether others stopped you from doing what you desired. Should the thought still be recurring and relevant today, pick up the pieces to figure out how you may proceed. The real test is whether the idea brings back excitement when considering the possibilities.
Next, consider your long term goal for the project and how it will complement what you already know and have in place. Prioritize the topics you may need to learn to ensure a successful outcome. Confer with trusted peers to inquire about what they might add to your idea to make it more robust.
Patience is necessary as nothing happens overnight. Give yourself a reasonable timeline for completing the learning and implementation in front of you. Add extra time because mishaps occasionally set one back. More importantly, continue to tell yourself the project is possible to achieve and that you can do it. Once you convince yourself, this is so, set a date for completion. Work backward by setting long-term and then short-term goals with deadlines to make the project happen.
Last, when you achieve the previous seemingly impossible, consider how you may teach others to see their dreams come true. Community support can make all the difference.
