Impossible Goals Quotes By Richelle E. Goodrich

Impossible Goals Quotes By Craig D. Lounsbrough

Because I have 'chosen' to see something as impossible, there's a good chance that it's not. — Craig D. Lounsbrough

Impossible Goals Quotes By Bobbie Holaday

Striving to save wildlife species and their dwindling habitats is a noble goal. It takes tremendous persistence in the face of those with money and power who want to expedite their short-range goals regardless of impacts on wildlife and habitat. You have moments on the mountaintops of exhilaration, and moments in the desolate valleys of despair. You have days when the goal you have set out to pursue appears absolutely impossible to achieve. But you must persist. — Bobbie Holaday

Impossible Goals Quotes By Craig D. Lounsbrough

A conviction borne of God amply possesses the potency and power to brazenly reach beyond the possible in order to topple the impossible. — Craig D. Lounsbrough

Impossible Goals Quotes By Ruth Ozeki

It's okay to have impossible goals, because if you follow your unreachable star no matter how hopeless or far, your heart will be peaceful when you're dead, even though you might be scorned and covered with scars like I am while you're still alive. — Ruth Ozeki

Impossible Goals Quotes By Craig D. Lounsbrough

How often do I stand in abject terror and raw trepidation before the impossible peaks that soar to impossible heights in front me, when God turns to me and calmly says "what mountains? — Craig D. Lounsbrough

Impossible Goals Quotes By Marcel Proust

She cursed her will, which could rear so impetuously and leap over hurdles so dauntlessly when her desires strove toward impossible goals - her will, so weak, so pliant, so broken not only when she was forced to disobey her desires, but also when she was driven by some other emotion. — Marcel Proust

Impossible Goals Quotes By Carolyn Lee Adams

I have no idea what to do, and everything is starting to feel dangerously hopeless. Hopelessness is not an emotion to be indulged. On the heels of hopelessness comes defeat, and even though everything seems pointless and impossible, I still want to win. Underneath my confusion and utter, bone-crushing fatigue, even though I don't know much of anything at all, I still know I want to win. — Carolyn Lee Adams

Impossible Goals Quotes By Theodor Reik

He [Freud] often said three things were impossible to fulfill completely; healing, education, governing. He limited his goals in analytic treatment to brining the patient to the point where he could work for a living and learn to love. — Theodor Reik

Impossible Goals Quotes By T. Harv Eker

The first rule of making progress in anything you do is setting goals, allowing yourself to always have a finish line in sight. This provides a boost in motivation during those moments when slogging forward seems impossible, giving you something tangible to work towards at every moment. — T. Harv Eker

Impossible Goals Quotes By Craig D. Lounsbrough

Every advancing step I take toward my goal of comfort is yet another retreating step I take away from God's goal of the impossible. — Craig D. Lounsbrough

Impossible Goals Quotes By Richelle E. Goodrich

They say it's impossible.
I refuse to believe it.
The journey may be difficult and the desired end unlikely. My patience and commitment may be tested by something that won't happen overnight. It may be that I veer off the path or quit before reaching my goal, but that doesn't mean it is impossible. — Richelle E. Goodrich

Impossible Goals Quotes By Ayn Rand

Throughout the centuries there were men who took first steps down new roads armed with nothing but their own vision. Their goals differed, but they all had this in common: that the step was first, the road new, the vision unborrowed, and the response they received - hatred. The great creators - the thinkers, the artists, the scientists, the inventors - stood alone against the men of their time. Every great new thought was opposed. Every great new invention was denounced. The first motor was considered foolish. The airplane was considered impossible. The power loom was considered vicious. Anesthesia was considered sinful. But the men of unborrowed vision went ahead. They fought, they suffered and they paid. But they won. — Ayn Rand

Impossible Goals Quotes By Mark S. Weiner

Yet, whatever form it takes, the belief that individual freedom exists only when the state is frail misunderstands the source of liberty. The state can be more or less effective in the pursuit of its goals - it can be stupid or smart - and it can be used for illiberal, totalitarian ends. But ultimately a healthy state dedicated to the public interest makes individual freedom possible. This is the paradox of individualism. The individual freedom that citizens of liberal societies rightly cherish, even our very concept of the individual, is impossible without a robust state. Modern individualism depends on the existence of vigorous and effective government dedicated to the public interest, to policies that a majority of citizens would support without regard to their particular position in society at any given moment. It depends as well on the willingness of individual citizens to imagine themselves as members of a common public whose interests the state regularly vindicates. — Mark S. Weiner

Impossible Goals Quotes By Israelmore Ayivor

Goals are easily scored with either a skillful strike or a strong one. If you make a strong strike, it's impossible for it to be defended by obstacles in your goal! — Israelmore Ayivor

Impossible Goals Quotes By Ellen J. Barrier

To set goals and pursue them, we must have a desire to dream of things some would think to be impossible. — Ellen J. Barrier

Impossible Goals Quotes By Mani S. Sivasubramanian

Without first setting your goals correctly, it is impossible to focus on a plan to achieve them. That is why goal setting is so vital to time management and developing focus. — Mani S. Sivasubramanian

Impossible Goals Quotes By Gerry Lindgren

Goals should be impossible! You should tread FEARLESSLY where the brave dare not go. — Gerry Lindgren

Impossible Goals Quotes By Ryan Holiday

We blame our bosses, the economy, our politicians, other people, or we write ourselves off as failures or our goals as impossible. When really only one thing is at fault: our attitude and approach. — Ryan Holiday

Impossible Goals Quotes By Noel DeJesus

We all have goals and dreams. Say them aloud to yourself; if they don't sound slightly impossible then they aren't set high enough. — Noel DeJesus

Impossible Goals Quotes By Holly Burns

An inner dialogue of negative thoughts will be toxic and self-destructive, because it will cause you to doubt what you previously thought was obvious or doable. It will poison you against your goals and your self-worth. It will keep you from acting when you need to. In short, it will make it impossible to live up to your full potential. — Holly Burns

Impossible Goals Quotes By Joseph P. Kauffman

We need to reevaluate and reconsider what is appropriate human behavior. Human beings have been so successful at surviving because of our intelligence and cooperation. When we are unintelligent and uncooperative it is no wonder that our survival is threatened. We need to be educated about our health and the health of our planet, and work together to achieve goals that are impossible to achieve individually. — Joseph P. Kauffman

Impossible Goals Quotes By Neil A. Fiore

The fear of failure, the fear of being imperfect (perfectionism), and the fear of impossible expectations (being overwhelmed) that prevent us from acting on and attaining humanly possible goals and relationships. — Neil A. Fiore

Impossible Goals Quotes By Hayley Williams

I believe it's important to stay young at heart, to have faith in what might seem impossible and to have goals beyond your current abilities or temporary means. — Hayley Williams

Impossible Goals Quotes By Scott Weiss

At the core, coaching authenticity is complicated - some might say impossible. Telling someone to be authentic sounds pretty low calorie, especially to a founder plowing through a list of product and operational goals. But it's important. — Scott Weiss

Impossible Goals Quotes By Craig D. Lounsbrough

To dream only of what is 'possible' is to be fooled into believing that one is dreaming in the first place. — Craig D. Lounsbrough

Impossible Goals Quotes By Richelle E. Goodrich

Is anything truly impossible? Or is it that the path to our goals appears too unclear to follow? It seems to me that if you seek hard enough, pray hard enough, you usually stumble across a scattering of breadcrumbs that marks the trail leading to the goal you once considered beyond your reach. — Richelle E. Goodrich

Impossible Goals Quotes By Abhijit Naskar

Love opens the most impossible gates in the world. — Abhijit Naskar

Impossible Goals Quotes By Arnold Schwarzenegger

To go in the direction that I went takes a lot of work. And I don't think you can do the work - the five or six hours of working out a day - if you don't have a clear goal or know why you're doing it. If you just hang out at the gym and train for five or six hours a day without a goal is almost impossible. — Arnold Schwarzenegger

Impossible Goals Quotes By Craig D. Lounsbrough

In the absence of faith, our dreams will move from feasible aspirations to implausible fantasy. — Craig D. Lounsbrough

Impossible Goals Quotes By Gerry Lindgren

The 3-minute mile goal is to teach runners that the impossible is where goals should be set. — Gerry Lindgren

Impossible Goals Quotes By Fabio Capello

When he's on fire, he is impossible to stop. He dribbles like a winger, but is still able to score 20 goals a year in the Premiership.
(on Thierry Henry) — Fabio Capello

Impossible Goals Quotes By Craig D. Lounsbrough

With God, the word 'impossible' is itself impossible. — Craig D. Lounsbrough

Impossible Goals Quotes By Eric Schmidt

Over time I've learned, surprisingly, that it's tremendously hard to get teams to be super ambitious. It turns out most people haven't been educated in this kind of moonshot thinking. They tend to assume that things are impossible, rather than starting from real-world physics and figuring out what's actually possible. It's why we've put so much energy into hiring independent thinkers at Google, and setting big goals. Because if you hire the right people and have big enough dreams, you'll usually get there. And even if you fail, you'll probably learn something important. It's also true that many companies get comfortable doing what they have always done, with a few incremental changes. This kind of incrementalism leads to irrelevance over time, especially in technology, because change tends to be revolutionary not evolutionary. So you need to force yourself to place big bets on the future. — Eric Schmidt

Impossible Goals Quotes By Angela Williamson

Most people think of ways why their desires or goals would fail, instead of thinking of ways why they will succeed. Do not give in to why it would fail, but why it would succeed. Many people also fail to take action or give up to quickly on their desires or goals. It took Edison 1,000 attempts to obtain his goal the light bulb. People like Latimer improved on Edison's invention at time when our society dictate his status based on the color of his skin. They had the mentality that it would be impossible for them to fail. When you have this mentality, miracles will take place in your life. Remember winners or not quitters and quitters are not winners. Look for opportunities to realize your desires or goals today and every day. — Angela Williamson

Impossible Goals Quotes By Kevin Michel

Your 'Ideal Parallel World' must be so grand that if you told it to 99% of your friends, they would laugh - some because they would think you were joking and some because they would think the goal impossible. — Kevin Michel

Impossible Goals Quotes By Og Mandino

My dreams are worthless, my plans are dust, my goals are impossible.
All are of no value unless they are followed by action. — Og Mandino

Impossible Goals Quotes By Gad Saad

Hope is an elixir of life. It is the engine that propels us forward in our pursuit of countless goals, all of which might otherwise be impossible to undertake if we were bereft of hope. — Gad Saad

Impossible Goals Quotes By Jaha Knight

When you set a goal, you have a responsibility to yourself to see it through. No matter how impossible it may seem, resolve to accomplish it. — Jaha Knight

Impossible Goals Quotes By Li Cunxin

I went to extreme measures to achieve my goals, from strapping heavy sandbags on my ankles, hopping on one leg, up and down four flights of stairs at 5 am to practice my turns in front of the candle light when others are asleep. I felt like that I had climbed many tall mountains and made so many impossible dreams come true through sheer determination, perseverance, passion, self conviction and belief. — Li Cunxin

Impossible Goals Quotes By Liz Murray

Anything that is within someone else's reach is also within yours. Set your goals no matter how impossible they may seem. Then focus on what is between you and that goal. And then, simply take out the obstacles as they come. — Liz Murray

Impossible Goals Quotes By Rodolfo Costa

For some people, their fear to lose is greater than their desire to succeed, so they end up doing nothing and their dreams become impossible. — Rodolfo Costa

Impossible Goals Quotes By Craig D. Lounsbrough

The hallmark of great dreams is not their possibility but their impossibility, and the fact that it is the very notion of the 'impossible' that inspires us to go and accomplish them anyway. — Craig D. Lounsbrough

Impossible Goals Quotes By Craig D. Lounsbrough

My vision of what God can do is nothing more than a fleeting glance of the backside of the 'possible,' while God is inviting me to the forefront of the 'impossible. — Craig D. Lounsbrough

Impossible Goals Quotes By Brandon Sanderson

She remembered Kelsier, standing boldly before a small group of thieves, proclaiming that they would
overthrow the Lord Ruler and free the empire. We're thieves, he'd said. And we're extraordinarily
good ones. We can rob the unrobbable and fool the unfoolable. We know how to take an
incredibly large task and break it down to manageable pieces, then deal with each of those pieces.
That day, when he'd written up the team's goals and plans on a small board, Vin had been amazed by
how possible he had made an impossible task seem. That day, a little bit of her had begun to believe that
Kelsier could overthrow the Final Empire. — Brandon Sanderson

Impossible Goals Quotes By Philip Cushman

The self is configured in ways that both reflect and influence the very foundations of social life and everyday living. Without the guidance set by a particular set of ideas about what it means to be human, political conflict would be impossible. The shape of the self in a particular era indicates which goals individuals are supposed to strive toward, and how individuals are to comport themselves while striving; it indicates what is worthwhile, who is worthwhile, and which institutions determine worthwhileness. In other words, the self emerges out of a moral dialogue that sets the stage for all other political struggles. Once the self is set, the rest of the struggles begin to appear in the clearing: they materialize. — Philip Cushman

Impossible Goals Quotes By Ellyn Stern

My expectations-which I extended whenever I came close to accomplishing my goals-made it impossible ever to feel satisfied with my success. — Ellyn Stern

Impossible Goals Quotes By Richelle E. Goodrich

Having this, we want that.
Owning some, we want more.
Standing here, we wish to be there.
If it's impossible, we struggle to make it happen.
Why are we like this? Why not be content with some, here, and now? Why is enough not enough?
Because humans are ambitious creatures not meant to be idle or fruitless. We strive to learn, to grow, to achieve, to amass; therefore, we will never be content. — Richelle E. Goodrich

Impossible Goals Quotes By Mike Hawkins

Goals seem impossible only when you are not heading toward them. — Mike Hawkins

Impossible Goals Quotes By Neil Gaiman

Sometimes the way to do what you hope to do will be clear cut, and sometimes it will be almost impossible to decide whether or not you are doing the correct thing, because you'll have to balance your goals and hopes with feeding yourself, paying debts, finding work, settling for what you can get. — Neil Gaiman

Impossible Goals Quotes By Craig D. Lounsbrough

My definition of success is not based on achieving the impossible, but rather surviving the probable. And with a threshold that horribly low, simple survival cannot help but become my highest aspiration. — Craig D. Lounsbrough

Impossible Goals Quotes By Haim Ginott

Teachers are expected to reach unattainable goals with inadequate tools. The miracle is that at times they accomplish this impossible task. — Haim Ginott

Impossible Goals Quotes By Nido Qubein

When a goal matters enough to a person, that person will find a way to accomplish what at first seemed impossible. — Nido Qubein

Impossible Goals Quotes By Brad Stone

Steady progress toward seemingly impossible goals will win the day. Setbacks are temporary. Naysayers are best ignored. — Brad Stone

Impossible Goals Quotes By Robert Cheeke

ONE OF THE GREATEST EXPERIENCES IN LIFE IS ACHIEVING PERSONAL GOALS THAT OTHERS SAID WOULD BE, 'IMPOSSIBLE TO ATTAIN.' BE PROUD OF YOUR SUCCESS AND SHARE YOUR STORY WITH OTHERS. — Robert Cheeke

Impossible Goals Quotes By Daniel Goldstein

If you set goals for yourself, and you're like a lot of other people, you probably realize it's not that your goals are physically impossible that's keeping you from achieving them; it's that you lack the self-discipline to stick to them. It's physically possible to lose weight. It's physically possible to exercise more. — Daniel Goldstein

Impossible Goals Quotes By Chuck Norris

I remembered the story of the bumblebee. Aerodynamically it is impossible for the bumblebee to fly. The body is to big for the small size of the wings, but apparently no one told the bumblebee that, so he flies! That's pretty much the story of setting goals. Nothing is impossible unless you believe it is. — Chuck Norris

Impossible Goals Quotes By Christopher

I truly feel that if you understand yourself and set goals without the regulations and limitations others put on you, then nothing is impossible. — Christopher

Impossible Goals Quotes By Mani S. Sivasubramanian

Realize the joy there is in trying to accomplish the impossible. — Mani S. Sivasubramanian

Impossible Goals Quotes By Tamar Braxton

The only person that can give up on you is yourself. People will always say no but you gotta keep trying. As long as you are above the ground there's opportunity. Utilize your time and be serious about your craft. Don't forget to PRACTICE! Be serious about your goals. Understand you have to be talented. Don't seek the impossible be realistic! — Tamar Braxton

Impossible Goals Quotes By Hailee Steinfeld

My character in 'True Grit' would set these goals for herself that seemed near impossible, but to her they were possible. She was never going to believe anything else other than that. — Hailee Steinfeld

Impossible Goals Quotes By Murray N. Rothbard

Not content with the liberal creed of equality of rights, of equality before the law, the socialist State would trample on such equality on behalf of the monstrous and impossible goal of equality or uniformity of results--or rather, would erect a new privileged elite, a new class, in the name of bringing about such an impossible equality. Socialism was a confused and hybrid movement because it tried to achieve the lbieral goals of freedom, peace and industrial harmony and growth--goals which can only be achieved through liberty and the seperation of government from virtuallty--by imposting the old conservative means of statism, collectivism, and hierarchical privilege. — Murray N. Rothbard

Impossible Goals Quotes By Kofi Annan

It is impossible to realize our goals while discriminating against half the human race. As study after study has taught us, there is no tool for development more effective than the empowerment of women. — Kofi Annan

Impossible Goals Quotes By Paul Goodman

The aim is not to give human beings real goals that warrant belief, and tasks to share in, but to re-establish "belonging," although this kind of speech and thought is precisely calculated to avoid contact and so makes belonging impossible. — Paul Goodman

Impossible Goals Quotes By Theodore Isaac Rubin

Invest in the "process" rather than the product. Process living neutralizes the depleting and impoverishing effects of chronically living in anticipation. Even when impossible goals occasionally are reached, satisfactions derived from them are invariably disappointing unless the process has given ample satisfaction along the way. — Theodore Isaac Rubin

Impossible Goals Quotes By Richelle E. Goodrich

The funny thing about an impossibility is that it tends to be a magnet for those who would prove it otherwise. — Richelle E. Goodrich

Impossible Goals Quotes By Nastia Liukin

Set daily, monthly and long term goals and dreams. Don't ever be afraid to dream too big. Nothing is impossible. If you believe in yourself, you can achieve it. — Nastia Liukin

Impossible Goals Quotes By Diane Ackerman

Working from home meant we could vary snack and coffee breaks, change our desks or view, goof off, drink on the job, even spend the day in pajamas, and often meet to gossip or share ideas. On the other hand, we bossed ourselves around, set impossible goals, and demanded longer hours than office jobs usually entail. It was the ultimate "flextime," in that it depended on how flexible we felt each day, given deadlines, distractions, and workaholic crescendos. — Diane Ackerman

Impossible Goals Quotes By Nathaniel Branden

It sounded, I told him, as if he had never learned to balance projecting goals into the future with appreciating and living in the present.
...
To the extent that our goal is to "prove" ourselves or ward off the fear of failure, this balance is difficult to achieve. We are too driven. Not joy but anxiety is our motor.
But if our aim is self-expression rather than self-justification, the balance tends to come more naturally. We will still need to think about its daily implementation, but the anxiety of wounded self-esteem will not make the task nearly impossible. — Nathaniel Branden

Impossible Goals Quotes By Peter Thiel

in order to be happy, every individual needs to have goals whose attainment requires effort.

Kaczynski argued that modern people are depressed because all the world's hard problems have already been solved. What's left to do is either easy or impossible, and pursuing those tasks is deeply unsatisfying. What you can do, even a child can do; what you can't do, even Einstein couldn't have done. — Peter Thiel

Impossible Goals Quotes By Larry Page

Optimism is important. You have to be a little silly about the goals you are going to set. There is a phrase I learned in college called, 'having a healthy disregard for the impossible.' That is a really good phrase. You should try to do things that most people would not do. — Larry Page

Impossible Goals Quotes By J. Jack Halberstam

This is a story of art without markets, drama without a script, narrative without progress. The queer art of failure turns on the impossible, the improbable, the unlikely, and the unremarkable. It quietly loses, and in losing it imagines other goals for life, for love, for art, and for being. — J. Jack Halberstam

Impossible Goals Quotes By Laini Taylor

It was impossible, of course. But when did that ever stop any dreamer from dreaming. — Laini Taylor
