I am on a layover in the middle of an airline trip and was just reading through some RSS feeds that came in while I was enroute. One in particular really struck me. It was from Seth Godin (Seth’s Blog), an internationally known marketer and author. The post I’m referring to read, in part:
Mike sent me a great story about an ultra-lightweight backpacker:
“Wolf was carrying a super-small pack which weighed 14 pounds including food and water. When asked how he got his pack weight so low, Wolf would reply, ‘All you need to know is that it’s possible. ‘“
How does this relate to going out and learning to fly? Think about it.
Is flying something that you have always had an interest in experiencing? Has it been a long-neglected goal, pushed to the back burner of your mind because life and all it’s complexities have somehow gotten in the way?
Take a few minutes and wander around the Internet searching for stories of people who have managed to fit flying into their lives. Yes, some were better off than you but many are making their way through life with significantly less than you – both financially and physically.
The point is that the Internet is a huge collection of your possibilities. If you search you will find that those reasons you are using for not attaining your goals are merely excuses. There are people out there who are overcoming those circumstances to make their dreams come true.
As the quote says “All you need to know is that it’s possible.”
Yes, it is. The decision is yours.
