I was raised in a society and by a family that told me I am limitless! Everything is possible. I just need to show up. Therefore, I became a dreamer and a doer at a very early age. My homeland, like Maui, is in the middle of a huge body of water. Yet, it never occurred to me that I had limitations.
Fast forward to my homeland Maui. For the last ten years I have continued my life dreaming and doing — until just recently. I began to notice a word penetrating my mind — one that was obsolete from my vocabulary. It was popping up everywhere and spilling out of the mouths of individuals who were considered high achievers or successful by human standards.
That word was “impossible.” It was gaining momentum and attracting friends such as “small island” and “not enough.” Something inside me ignited. Because I knew if this word continued to grow and accumulate more “friends,” it would be hard to recover. I set out to be the “possible” and, like me, so can you! We all are super heroes because we all have done something someone else has never done! And that is called “possible.”
On this small island a lot of “possibles” have happened — whether by the hand of man or by miracles. We had a President who made history come from this land. According to historical data, Hawaii had electricity before other parts of the United States. We have athletes, scholars, healers and world changers — to name a few — from this land.
The next time you think of “impossible,” look in the mirror. Just by being alive today you are “possible” in action!
