Another Impossible Definition

Don’t let stinkin’ thinkin’ spoil your chance to be encouraged…

Let your mind open up to limitless possibilities. There is something magical about attempting the impossible. History is full of inspiring stories, from the Bible, Qur’an, and other ancient teachings, to the New York Times and CNN.

Here’s the catch. And it’s a great one.

In Lane 8’s and jeff noel’s context, impossible doesn’t mean something no human has ever done. It means something YOU have never done.

Never been able to do a push-up? Never able to run a 5k? Never been able to touch your toes? Never finished first in your age-group? These are the impossible goals that should stiffen your backbone and nail your resolve.

Bet you have the same challenges. In fact, I’ll guarantee you struggle with it.

I say the same thing, over and over again, on these five blogs.

This approach may bore you.

Therein lies one of the secrets to a well-lived life.

Never get bored with the basics.

What’s Easier?

Stadium Steps At Indiana University, May 13

Life is pretty simple.  We all know this to be true, however, we most likely forget.

We really have only two choices when it comes to our health. Focus on it or don’t focus on it.

Which leads us to one more simple truth, and again, there are only two choices here.

Give up trying because it’s too difficult, or never give up trying.

I’ll bet you struggle with this as much as I do. That’s one of the main reason’s Lane 8 exists in the first place – to nourish the people who have chosen the later.
