How To Make The Impossible Possible!

Jun 5, 2008
Time and time again, if you look at history, people who have produced phenomenal results are those that have set goals that everyone else thought was unrealistic and even crazy.

Think about it. If 15 years ago, someone told you that almost everybody would be walking around with a telephone the size of a credit card; that could play music; take pictures; communicate with computers and send pictures; you would have thought that they were crazy. You would think that there was no way that the above scenario could be done.

Why is it now reality? All it took was one person to think of the impossible and make it real.

Everything you see around you was first created in someone's mind as an idea. You see, everything is created twice. First as an idea and then manifested in physical reality.

Were the Wright brothers being very realistic when they set out to build a flying machine?

They were not even scientists or engineers, and at that time, it was believed that it was physically impossible for machines heavier than air to fly. By changing their strategy and doing whatever it takes, they finally invented the first airplane; and they were simply bicycle repairmen.

Today it is a wonder how a 500 ton jumbo jet carrying over 300 people can fly around the world. It is a miracle.

If the Wright brothers had been realistic as the rest of the other people at that time, you and I would still be taking the slow boat to China.

How about the story of Singapore becoming a first world country in 30 years?

When the country first gained independence in 1965, the government had to face the fact that there was only a population of 2 million people. In addition, the island had no natural resources of tin, oil or gold. In fact, it did not even have sufficient water to feed its own people.

The only resource it had was human resource. At that time, most of the people were uneducated and illiterate immigrants from China and India. To make things worse, over 70 percent of the island's economy was dependant on the British, who were soon going to pull out.

If the government had been realistic, given the limited resources they had, they would have set incremental goals of just being half as good as our neighboring countries, in comparison, were huge and had an abundance of natural resources and had more of an experienced government.
Instead the government of Singapore decided to make Singapore a first world economy and developed country in 30 years. This unrealistic target forced them to develop plans and strategies that were totally out of the box.

By applying the strategies shared above and the concept of modeling, in a period of 30 years, it enabled Singapore to acheive first world economy status.

In fact, I believe that something is impossible simply because it has not been accomplished yet. Many of the things around us that we take for granted were not too long ago thought to be unrealistic
