“Labeling Something As Impossible Is Easy. It Doesn’t Require You To Try…”

If you’ve ever felt like what you want to do might be impossible, or that it will take too long, or that “no-one has done it before, so it’s probably a pipe dream”… this episode is for you. You can challenge the impossible.

With so many new listeners joining us on the show, we want to make sure you’re hearing directly from our host for ’a minute’. Who is this guy who gets in rooms with Business Titans and deals with an extraordinary number of entrepreneurs? He’s often described as ‘the smartest guy in the room’ and today instead of an interview, Roland shares some big questions and historical evidence, that will inspire you to BELIEVE! 

A Mindset For Success.

It’s one thing to be impressed by someone’s entrepreneurial endeavors and glean takeaways and tips. It’s another thing to think how the highly-successful think. You need to adopt the same mindset that all successful men and women share. And this episode will help you do that.

Ultra-high achievers align themselves and their dreams to opportunities that match their talent, skills, and resources, at times at which those opportunities present themselves. They increase the breadth of what’s possible for them by sculpting their own possibility vision, with the chisel of data and opportunity.” Roland Frasier.

Can You Truly Accomplish Almost Anything?

“Tens of thousands of bold and persistent entrepreneurs before you have stared down doubt, pushed past legal impossibilities, overcome physical impossibilities, dreamt impossible dreams and brought them to reality, broken through immense fiscal impossibilities and persisted past social impossibilities.” Roland Frasier

Roland Challenges The ‘Impossible’.

  1. Legally mandated impossibilities.
  2. Physical impossibilities.
  3. Perceptual impossibilities.
  4. Fiscal Impossibilities.
  5. Societal Impossibilities.

“The truth is that there are very few things that are truly impossible. I believe in you. Now you go make the change, and be the change”. Roland Frasier

How To Challenge The Impossible In Your Business.

Can you do as billionaire Peter Theil suggests and achieve your 10-year goals in 6 months in Business? Is the possible only limited by your mindset, or are there possibilities that elude you which are simply beyond your reach? 

Throughout history, we have seen the limits of the possible expanded again and again.

“If these amazing (formerly assumed impossible) things could be invented, and these formerly thought unachievable human feats could be done, then surely you can hit your 10-year business goals in 6 months? Or accomplish in 1 year what most would take 3 or 5 years to accomplish?” Roland Frasier

Spoiler Alert

“Massive rapid hyper-growth is indeed very possible”. Roland Frasier

A Five-Step Plan.

Step 1 Find the Fire.

Step 2 Conceive and Believe. Your subconscious will not allow you to achieve something that it hasn’t seen as possible at first. Challenge the Impossible.

Step 3 Practice Adaptive versus Non-adaptive possibility (otherwise, you’ll have trouble seeing it as possible and accomplishing step 2)

Step 4 Apply data-informed resource opportunity alignment.

Step 5 Pursue, persist, and persevere.

“We cannot say if Oprah could have developed a space ship or an electric car, but I’ll bet she could have had that, if it had been her passion…She could be the engine to either of those now because she has the capital and connections to make it happen.” Roland Frasier
