1) Is this goal located in a neighborhood in which I want to live?
4) Can I afford this goal?
Often times these people who constantly discourage our goals and dreams, doubt our ability, and question our motives for wanting to succeed are the very people who interpret difficult to equal impossible. The main reason for this is because they lack the drive, the discipline, the focus, the skills, the resilience, the work ethic, and the vision to take it to the next level. Thus, they stand on philosophies that are self-defeating prophecies, they think spiteful thoughts that emanate through their pores and give off an uninviting odor and they speak hate. In their world, difficult is impossible because thy selfishly expect to have the things that they want with ease. Accordingly, they criticize people who have achieved what they have worked hard for.
Verily I say unto those of you have experienced this type of behavior and find it difficult to deal with. Make it impossible for these people to deter you. Utilize their negativity as a tool of motivation to achieve, not to just to prove them wrong but to prove yourself right. Thus, remove the obstacles from your path one by one, possession by possession and prayer by prayer.
Hard does not equal unattainable
Out of sight doesn't equal out of reach
Losing doesn't equal failure
Patience doesn't equal procrastination
Impossible doesn't equal Barack earning the Democratic Nomination
Impossible equals the ultimate curse word
Impossible equals the most destructive drug............... just say no.
