I CAN!!!……….read more

History abounds with tales of experts who were convinced
that the ideas, plans, and projects of others could never be
achieved. However, accomplishment came to those who said ,
“I can make it happen. ”
The Italian sculptor Agostino d ‘Antonio worked diligently on
a large piece of marble . Unable to produce his desired
masterpiece, he lamented, ” I can do nothing with it .” Other
sculptors also worked this difficult piece of marble, but to
no avail. Michelangelo discovered the stone and visualized
the possibilities in it . His ” I -can- make- it -happen ” attitude
resulted in one of the world ‘s masterpieces – David .
The experts of Spain concluded that Columbus’s plans to
discover a new and shorter route to the West Indies was
virtually impossible . Queen Isabella and King Ferdinand
ignored the report of the experts . “I can make it happen, ”
Columbus persisted. And he did . Everyone knew the world
was flat, but not Columbus. The Nina , the Pinta, the Santa
Maria, along with Columbus and his small band of
followers, sailed to “impossible ” new lands and thriving
Even the great Thomas Alva Edison discouraged his friend ,
Henry Ford , from pursuing his fledgling idea of a motorcar.
Convinced of the worthlessness of the idea , Edison invited
Ford to come and work for him. Ford remained committed
and tirelessly pursued his dream . Although his first attempt
resulted in a vehicle without reverse gear , Henry Ford knew
he could make it happen . And, of course, he did .
“Forget it , ” the experts advised Madame Curie. They agreed
radium was a scientifically impossible idea. However , Marie
Curie insisted , “I can make it happen. ”
Let ‘s not forget our friends Orville and Wilbur Wright.
Journalists, friends, armed forces specialists, and even their
father laughed at the idea of an airplane. “What a silly and
insane way to spend money . Leave flying to the birds, ” they
jeered. ” Sorry, ” the Wright brothers responded. ” We have a
dream , and we can make it happen. ” As a result , a place
called Kitty Hawk , North Carolina , became the setting for
the launching of their “ridiculous” idea .
Finally, as you read these accounts under the magnificent
lighting of your environment , consider the plight of
Benjamin Franklin.


He was admonished to stop the foolish
experimenting with lighting . What an absurdity and waste
of time ! Why , nothing could outdo the fabulous oil lamp.
Thank goodness Franklin knew he could make it happen.
You too can make it happen !
