There are times in life where you may feel that other people have something you want, but can’t get. You may feel that it’s impossible for you, that those other people were luckier, or in better positions and had greater resources, and you simply are not as fortunate. While it absolutely could be the case that the road may be longer, harder, tougher for you for a variety of reasons outside of your control, it is nevertheless true that you can get whatever you want if you focus all your energies and resources into it.
Of course, at some point you may come to terms with not getting what you want, particularly if the cost of trying is high and leaving you vulnerable to danger. There is value in acceptance, after all. But the truth remains, if you want to get something, become something, do something—you can. Time is not an issue, because as long as you are still alive, you have time, and truly, it is never too late to start anything. Again, it may be more challenging in some ways, but it will also be easier in others. What have you got to lose by starting something later than most others? Nothing. It’s all gain for you.
You want to learn a new language, learn to play a musical instrument, learn to tell a joke, be healthier, live somewhere else, travel, meet new people, get a new job or a new career? You can do it! Whatever you want. Money is not an issue either because there is always a low cost alternative to everything; in fact, you can pay for the things you must with a minimum wage job. You can learn a new language, learn the foundations of a new trade or career, learn to tell a joke, learn to be healthier—all for free from books, apps, and videos available on the internet or in public libraries. Or, you can enroll in low cost classes at a community college or an online school. You can buy or rent low cost musical instruments, or choose to use a free musical instrument, your voice. There are many options for low cost travel, such as camping, hostels, or work exchanges that give you free room and board for doing some type of work.
The world is your oyster and you are free to move about and make of your life what you want. If someone was able to do it, so can you. If no one has done it, you may be the first. What really is out there that you would absolutely be unable to get? If we’re honest, the true limiting factor is your willingness to dedicate all your energy and resources into getting that something you thought you wanted. The real human superpower needed to make your dreams come true is dedication, which really means commitment and focus.
How do we develop this ability? Fortunately, we have many movies that take us through this process step by step, and show us exactly how a regular person, with average abilities, can reach what seemed to be an impossible goal. And you’d better believe that the reason there are so many examples of this shown in movies, including documentaries, is because it is absolutely true that if you never give up, you can get whatever you want.
