As an avid reader and a mother to three young kids, I have always enjoyed reading children’s books.
They always deliver the most profound wisdom in the simplest of ways. The other day while reading
“Alice in Wonderland”, I came across this gem:
“Sometimes, I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”
With all the recent emphasis on stepping out of your comfort zone and challenging limit beliefs, I
have personally found this statement to be the most effective one. This simple phrase signifies
courage, imagination, fearlessness, conviction and mostly, self-belief.
We must realize that the only thing that stands between us and our target (whatever it might be) is
us. We focus so much on external factors and everything that could possibly go wrong that we stop
thinking big and then all it takes is one little hurdle for us to lose sight of our higher vision.
So while you are (re)thinking of your new year resolutions, I would invite you to believe in the impossible before you embark on setting your goals. Believe big, think out of the box, be fearless, act bold and see where your wonderland takes you in 2019!
