If someone tells you “that is impossible”, question it! Believe in the Impossible. Many things are improbable and a few are near crazy, but if you believe in something enough you might just achieve it.

I had a teacher/mentor who once told me to forget the “see it to believe it” phrase and instead adopt a “you have to believe it to see it” attitude. Use this whenever you have doubts. I am not saying that it will make these doubts disappear, but it will help you through them. Believing that anything you wish, desire, crave, is a possibility, is a much, much better way to go through life than to say something is impossible.

Life can be hard but always try to achieve your innermost desires. Believe that nothing is impossible!

You can learn a lot about yourself by looking back. That doesn’t mean you should live in the past, your life is here and now. But in trying to be the best you can be (whatever you feel that is), look at what went on before today. What shaped you, what made you, the person you are today? Some of it it is pleasant (your first kiss) some of it is not (the day your best friend died), but all of it defines who you are today and what is on the long road ahead of you. Some people call it Karma, I call it Life.

Don’t forget to look at your family’s past either. There are some interesting stories there.  You have an aunt in the Netherlands, your daddy lives in the United States (but grew up in Holland). Your grandfather (on your mom’s side) was born in England. Your grandmother (on your dad’s side) was born in Indonesia. Her father was in a war camp there, held prison by the Japanese.

You share your last name with a group of islands in the Pacific.

Let your past be a guide to your future!

Well, having said that… Sometimes they are right. The problem is not so much that they are wrong per se, but that they are never accurate enough to be useful. They are always off, by days, inches/centimeters, degrees, you name it.

Take for instance the snow they predicted for this week in Memphis. They said we would have one to two inches (that’s 2.5 to 5 centimeters) of snow. Truth is, we barely had enough for one snow cone. The weather folks also predicted a high of 18 degrees (Farenheit) for Chicago. Trust me, I was there, it never even got close to 18!  And while I understand that its entirely difficult to predict a tornado, a hurricane comes with plenty of fair warning, but they can’t get it right!

Sometimes they are days off the mark! Here is how I read the weather… If the guy on TV says that there is a slight chance of rain, Bring an umbrella. The less they think it will rain, the more likely the torrential downpour will be. Conversely, if the weather moron tells you we will get at least a meter of snow by the end of the day… Be sure to bring enough sunscreen for the entire beach!
