While playing Candy Crush, there were times, I thought I would not make it through the level. Let’s say, I had 2 lives and 6 jellies to crush and there was no way I could make it. But suddenly out of nowhere something happened and I actually got to win the game and got to the next level. A lot of times, in life and business, we don’t know what’s possible and what’s not. We look at the current environment and based on that we decide what’s doable and what’s not. But how do we know? Take Google for that matter, even the founders didn’t know they would reach the level they are at today.
This brings me to a wonderful question that Michael Neill poses in his book, Creating the Impossible: A 90-day Program to Get Your Dreams Out of Your Head and into the World, and the question is as follows: What would you love to create in your life?
Some of us might say Oh, it’s no point, going after what I want because there’s absolutely no chance, at least not in this lifetime. To that, I have yet another amazing question that Michael usually asks and I will paraphrase:
Let’s say you can’t achieve it (and it doesn’t matter because that’s not the point), what would be fun to create?
So the idea is, forget the outcome, don’t bother thinking about it, just do what you’d love to do and have fun creating. Since a week I’ve been reading his Creating the Impossible and just been creating videos and blogs without really caring whether people will read it or like it for that matter. Just creating for the joy of creating. That’s it. Period.
So have fun creating and if you’d like to share your creation, you are most welcome to share it with me or post it on linkedin or facebook and tag me. Alternatively, if you’d love to create something but can’t seem to move forward, you are most welcome to contact me and I’d love to support you in any way possible. We can speak in person (if you’re in Hong Kong) or via skype or zoom. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Take care and have fun!
