Disregard The Impossible

Walt Disney was fired from a newspaper because he “lacked imagination and had no good ideas.” Then became one of the wealthiest people in the world as he built the Disney empire.
Beethoven’s teacher told him he was “hopeless as a composer,” he wrote 5 of the greatest symphonies while he was completely deaf.
“I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.” –Michael Jordan
People that have a healthy disregard for the impossible are the ones that are world changers, the ones that makes an impact that last for centuries. Somewhere along the line, you changed and stopped being you, and let people stick a finger in your face and tell you you’re no good. And you believed it. When things started getting hard, you made excuses for yourself…
But today something needs to change, today you need to realize your worth because when you understand what you’re worth, you go get what you’re worth.
Nobody has the right to stop you, nobody has the right to tell you “you can’t.” You’re not good enough, you’re not pretty enough- it’s not their right. It’s your right to listen to your calling, your desire, your passions. You know who you are and that’s all the matters, but you have to be willing to take the hits that life is going to throw at you.
Life will beat you down if you let it, it isn’t about how hard you can hit, but how hard you can get hit and get back up and move forward.
Today is the day you get up and change something, say something to somebody, make a move for your future, and stand up and fight for yourself. You just have to be willing to take the hits and not point fingers at excuses why you’re not succeeding.
Believe God has empowered you be the difference in someone else’s life, believe in that God that has liberated you from spending eternity apart from Him and died specifically for you to be empowered to serve others.
