I DON’T HAVE all the answers.

Nobody does!
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
Not you. Not me. Nobody. And that’s ok. You’re NOT meant to have all the answers.
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
It’s the QUESTIONS โ‰๏ธ we ask that make life interesting.
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
And… not having answers is the cure for boredom, because you’ll always have something to do!

“This Is Impossible?” Here’s The Single Question To Ask To Get Started

NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE. It all comes down to one word: DESIRE. โœจ
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
The question “Is it even possible?” then becomes: “How bad do you want it?”โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
Because if you have an unruly fire burning ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ within you, and your desire is big enough, you’ll figure out how to make it happen.โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
Turn impossible into โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
* I’M POSSIBLE! *
