The astonishing story is yours!
Scientists have done the studies to calculate the probability of you being born. Taking into account all the odds of your parents meeting, your ancestors meeting, even wars and the dinosaurs role in you being born, so says Mel Robbins in her TEDx San Fransico talk (video at bottom of article). Robbins goes on to say what is one of my favorite thoughts from the talk.
We have ideas everyday that are groundbreaking, but our brains put the emergency brake on.
If we are truly a miracle of 1 in 400 trillion, why do we do this to ourselves? Why do we doubt ourselves? Because we are afraid of failure?
Failure is only a stepping stone to success
Take your emergency brake off and challenge this airline mechanic in defining the meaning of “Love what you do.”
When I heard the claim that we had a 1 in 400 trillion chance of being born, I was astonished. I mean just stop and think about it for a minute. Think about all the things that had to happen over the course of history for you to be breathing at this moment.
We dream of hitting the lottery, but we fail to realize we have already won it.
Just as people search for Superman, but walk past Clark Kent every day. Each time we look at ourselves in the mirror a superhero stares back, we just don’t realize it. You didn’t wake up in the fantasy world of Metropolis either, this is reality. We are all miracles put on this earth for a purpose. We have a reason for being here and it is to live our dreams and impact the world in a positive way.
All we need is faith. Faith in ourselves and our visions. That they are the gateway to our success.
Faith that it is possible and we will see it through to the end. That we will follow in the footsteps of our minds eyes.
