Nothing is impossible, it is rightly said, “whatever your mind can conceive, it can achieve.”
When I was a child, and had an interest towards sports, while trying myself at high jumps and long jumps, my mind conceived an idea that we humans can fly, if we try to jump and take another jump midway in the air and keep repeating so several times. 

That way we can fly to a little extent and it could be the highest high jump or longest long jump ever. But the gap lies in the conceivement of the idea and trying ourselves on that idea. 

For me it was just an idea, untill today I read something which is real and reminded me to the same idea, popularly known as Fosbury flop long time ago.

In the 1960s, athlete Dick Fosbury developed a unique approach to his high jump and improved his performance by six inches. Fosbury’s awkward, midair rotation became known as the Fosbury Flop, and even though experts dismissed it at first, the Flop landed him a gold medal at the 1968 Olympics. Eventually, the experts and fellow high-jumpers caught up with Fosbury’s “weird” technique – the Fosbury Flop has been the technique used by every gold medalist since 1972.

Go against the flow, and with enough persistence and clever placement, you’ll be well on your way to getting luck on your side.

Who knows the idea of human flight can be real, if someone tries hand on it and succeeds after several attempts?

Kill the habit of worry, in all it’s forms, by reaching a general, blanket decision that nothing which life has to offer is worth the price of worry. 

With this decision will come poise, peace of mind and calmness of thought which will bring happiness. 

The habit of prompt and firm decision is the only known antidote for the germs “Fearenza” and “Worryitis.” 

We do not worry over conditions, once we have reached a decision to follow a definite line of action.

Through the ages which have passed, man has depended too much upon his physical senses, and has limited his knowledge to physical things, which he could see, touch, weigh and measure. 

Perhaps we shall learn, that the “other self” is more powerful than the physical self we see when we look into the mirror.
