Impossible is (almost) nothing

On one hand, we raved when "impossible is nothing" came out.

On another, we face life as if so many things are not possible.

Which is it? Or better yet, are there two versions depending on what we're talking about? More often than not, we expect the impossible of other people (even if we don't realize that) but when it comes to setting our own goals, we never settle for what we can't do.

The point isn't about saying "no" to things, which is important. But some things are impossible merely because we decided so. Because we don't really feel like it. Or because it's not on the job description. Or because they would have to pay me more to do it.

It's cool that we set boundaries to what we're willing to do, and what we're willing to compromise. But careful when mixing "not possible" with "not viable".
