Unleashing the Power of “I’m Possible”: Embracing Possibility and Intention

Feb 8 / Julie Jones
Fellow dreamers and doers:

Audrey Hepburn once famously said, – “Nothing is impossible; the word itself says, I’m possible.”  This quote resonates with me because it highlights the boundless potential that resides within each of us. Take a moment to ponder – What does “possible” really mean to you? Are you framing your questions in a way that truly unlocks the realm of possibility?

It is easy to get trapped in the confines of yes and no thinking, asking questions like, “Is it possible?” or “Will this work?”. But what if you flipped the script and dared to ask, “How might it be possible?” or “Why, is this possible important?” Shifting your perspective invites more opportunities to unfold. However, these reflection practices require intention and discipline.

Consider the timeless tale of Tortoise and Hare. Hurried Hare often made fun of sluggish Tortoise and asked if he ever got anywhere. Tortoise took offense and said, “… and I get there sooner than you think. I’ll run you in a race and prove it.” Speedy Hare knew this was a race he would win. But Tortoise’s deliberate strategy and unwavering focus were his superpower. Tortoise knew Hare was overconfident. In fact, Hare stopped and took a nap during the race. When Hare woke up, Tortoise was nearing the finish line sealing the victory over Hare. Aesop’s moral of the story is slow and steady wins the race.

Hare failed to achieve his possible, hitting the easy button, thinking his speed was the only skill he needed. But perhaps another moral could be – purposeful thinking outwits speed - or whatever made you successful yesterday. The ongoing investment in your learning, unlearning, and relearning can be a slow and steady process but one that can make the impossible, possible. Tortoise played the long game while Hare played the short game focused only on the here and now.

What else might be holding you back from embracing your own, I’m possible?

When was the last time you paused to acknowledge your greatest gifts and the difference you make in the world? In the fast pace of life, it's easy to overlook  your shining moments and the progress you’ve made. But seeing the possible is a mindset—a mindset of potential, opportunity, and promise. It takes practice to build your possible meter. Remember speed is a drawback, and the power of pause or intention is your superpower.

Take a moment to reflect:

  • Why is your I’m possible intention important to you?
  • How can you lean on others for support and guidance?
  • What new learning or skill could propel you forward?
  • What are you willing to commit to make it happen?

And remember, it's essential to celebrate your victories along the way—no matter how small. Each "I’m possible" moment fuels your journey and propels you toward your aspirations. So, here's to embracing the power of "I’m possible"—to unlocking potential, seizing opportunities, and thriving in the face of adversity. After all, in the words of Audrey Hepburn, "I’m possible" is just waiting for you to claim it.
