We all are born with inbuilt abilities and potentials to be able do anything in life, everyone born into this world was born with a gift inside of him or her, this gifting guaranties their lifting. John 1:9 says that “every man that cometh into the world has been lighteth.” Whatever dream you have in your heart is realizable, if only we choose to and are willing, for nothing can stop the human will, the will of the human soul is one of the strongest forces on earth. There are no limits to what a man can do whenever he becomes willing. Ralph Waldo Emerson got it right when he said,
“Neither you nor the world knows what you can do until you have tried.”
—Ralph Waldo Emerson
Wilbur and Orville 2 Americans, who invented and flew the world’s first successful airplane, were the sons of Milton and Susan Wright and members of a warm, loving family that encouraged learning and doing. Milton was a Bishop in the United Brethren Church, and was often away from home on church business. Nevertheless, he wrote hundreds of letters home, and often brought back presents from his trips, exposing his children to the world beyond their horizon. In 1878, he brought home a rubber band powered helicopter, and young Wilbur and Orville immediately began to build copies of it.
“If we all did the things we are really capable of doing, we would literally astound ourselves.”
In 1900 the Wright Brothers, Orville and Wilbur told their father Milton Wright about their intention to invent the airplane, he told them to forget it, that it was not possible, because “if God wanted humans to fly He would have created them with wings” but today humans are not only flying, they are literally living in the air. The impossible is possible, most of the times what we called the impossible is just the untried.
“It always seems impossible until it’s all done.”
Were the words of Nelson Mandela a former president of the Republic of South Africa and Nobel Peace laureate, who spent 27 years in prison as a central figure in the struggle against South Africa’s brutal and restrictive racial regime called apartheid after the victory over the seemly impossible fight against apartheid in South Africa. Robert Schuller said,
“You can be a dreamer and a doer too if you will remove the word impossible from your vocabulary.”
Do not let what you cannot do stop you from doing what you can.
