The Power of Our Beliefs: Turning “Impossible” to “I’m Possible”

Mon Mar 31, 2014

I recently came across a short documentary about a college student, who at a height of 5’5, trained himself to dunk a basketball at the normal height of 10 feet.

This video is an inspirational reminder of how important and powerful our beliefs really are.

My key takeaways from this video were:

  1. It doesn’t matter how small or large something is – if it’s important to you, go after it with everything you’ve got.
  2. Our biggest obstacle isn’t something externally — it’s always something within ourselves which we need to overcome.
  3. Why always comes before How. In this video, he wanted to prove to himself that anything was possible, which is what kept him training so hard until he achieved his goal.
  4. The power of perseverance — never give up! There will be obstacles along the way but keep coming back to your Why!

Question: What were some of your takeaways from the video?
