Moving From Impossible To Possible

Here is a story of a young man who made the impossible possible.

George Danzig was a grad student in mathematics. His math professor, the head of the mathematics department, told the grad students that whoever got the best grade on the final would be hired as his research assistant the next year. It was a great job. Everybody wanted the job.

George studied hard for the test. Consequently, he was up until the middle of the night studying. As a result, he overslept the next morning. Yet, he got to class in time to take the test. but, he did not hear the final instructions.

He was handed the test and went to the back of the room. George got through the eight math questions fairly easily. There were two additional problems on the blackboard. George copied them down and began to work on them.  He couldn't solve them.

George began to think, "somebody in this room is going to solve these problems. What's wrong with me?" He kept working and working and working on the problems. He couldn't get them solved.

By the end of the time allowed some of the students asked for additional time to work. The professor told them they could take the test home and bring it back by Friday. Maybe he should ask for more time, George thought. The teacher told him, "just bring the test back by Friday". George went home and sat up night after night. This was Monday. All day Tuesday and Tuesday night. Wednesday and Wednesday night. He just kept thinking "somebody is going to get these solved. Why not me?"

Determination Makes Things Possible

Finally, by Thursday morning he had one of the board problems solved. Then he kept working, working, working late into Thursday night and on Friday morning he solved the second one.

George turned the test in by the deadline. He went home wondering what would happen. Sunday morning at seven a.m. there was a knock, knock, knock at his door. He jumped out of bed. It's his professor. His professor says "George, you've made mathematical history! I was thinking on the way over here, you were late to the test right?" George said, "Well yeah, did I do something wrong?"

"No", the professor said, it's just that the eight questions were the test. I told everybody who was gathered, "I've had such a great time teaching all of you. If you want to have fun for the rest of your life, these two questions are the two unsolved math questions that even Einstein himself went to his grave unable to solve. How did you do this George?"

George recounted that if he had heard ahead of time that no one has been able to solve those problems, he probably would not have been able to solve them. It is true - That same access is within every one of us.

Face The Facts of What IS Possible

It is true I don't know what you are facing. However, I know that we are all more than our circumstance. Also, I know that the Universe is there to give us what we want if we align ourselves with it. There is a power in each one of us to build what we want to be, to give everything we want to give, to build our true dream life.

Know that there is always a solution available for any problem you may be facing. You need to step out in faith.

Your job is to stay open to that possibility…

And in support of all the possibilities that are in store for you, I would like to invite you to schedule a Discovery Session with me.

In Support Of YOU, I'm Sylvia
