I’m Possible Not Impossible

Dr. Ali Binazir, author of the Tao of Dating, estimates that the odds of you existing are one in four quadrillion. He makes a very impressive, analytical argument in arriving at that number in his piece Are You a Miracle?. It’s a great piece, but to save you time here’s the short of it.

Humans have been around for about 3 million years, or 150,000 generations. The odds of your ancestors surviving those 150,000 generations are staggering. The odds of your parents meeting, staggering. The odds of that one sperm cell meeting that one unique egg cell, at that specific right time, staggering. In short, you are a miracle just by virtue of being alive to read these words.

Yet, so many live their lives downing in impossibility. Rather than embracing the notion that your mere existence is an exclamation point, proving that anything is possible, the average Joe sees impossibility everywhere. They view their lives through the lens of impossibilities, allowing limiting, negative beliefs to anchor them to lives of mediocrity. What a shame.

When you consider the near impossibility of you being alive, it leaves no doubt that you were born lucky. The fact that you exist, means you’re lucky. It also means your very existence is a gift. You have been given a very rare opportunity to exist, which means you have been given the opportunity to make that life meaningful. You are clearly here on earth to do something with that gift.

Knowing you should not even be alive, that your existence defies the laws of probability, means that anything is possible. You can realize those dreams. You can achieve those goals. You can become successful. You can become rich. The life of your dreams is not impossible.

Be grateful for the opportunity life has given you. Stop thinking it’s Impossible and start thinking “I’m Possible”. Go after your dreams. Pursue your goals. Never quit on them. You’re here and, statistically, you shouldn’t be. That means all is possible.

Thomas C. Corley About Thomas C. Corley

Tom Corley understands the difference between being rich and poor: at age nine, his family went from being multi-millionaires to broke in just one night, due to a catastrophic fire that destroyed his Dad's thriving business. For fourteen years they struggled with poverty. There were eleven in Tom's family, and they lived in constant fear of losing their home.

Driven by the desire to unlock the secrets to success and failure, Tom spent five years studying the daily activities of 233 rich people and 128 poor people. He discovered there was an immense difference between the habits of the rich and the poor. During his research he identified over 300 daily activities that separated the “haves” from the “have nots.” Tom decided to write a book to share what he learned. That book, Rich Habits: The Daily Success Habits of Wealthy Individuals (1st Edition), went on to become an Amazon Bestseller in the United States forty times over a three year period. To give you some perspective, in order to be a true Amazon Bestseller in the United States, where you actually receive a specific Bestseller designation from Amazon, you need to be in the top 100 of all books sold by Amazon in the United States in a given day. Rich Habits did that for nearly thirty straight days, rising as high as #7, eclipsing such Bestselling authors such as Stephen Covey, Robert Kiyosaki and J.K. Rowlings. Imagine that - an unknown, first-time, self-published author selling more books than J.K. Rowlings!

Tom now travels the world, sharing his Rich Habits and motivating audiences at industry conferences, corporate events, universities, multi-level marketing group events, and global sales organizations’ presentations and finance conferences. He has even spoken on the same stage with famous entrepreneurs and personal development experts, such as Sir Richard Branson, Robin Sharma, Dr. Daniel Amen, and many others.

Tom has shared his insights on various national and international network, cable, and Internet television programs such as CBS Evening News, NBC News, Yahoo Financially Fit, Money.com, India TV, News.com Australia, and a host of others. He has been interviewed on many prestigious nationally syndicated radio shows, including the Dave Ramsey Show, Marketplace Money, and WABC.

Tom has been featured in numerous print magazines—such as Money magazine, Inc. Magazine, SUCCESS Magazine, Entrepreneur magazine, Fast Company magazine, More magazine, Epoca Magazine (Brazil’s largest weekly) and Kiplinger’s Personal Finance magazine—and various online publications, including USA Today, CNN, MSN Money, SUCCESS.com, Inc.com, and the Huffington Post. Tom is a frequent contributor to Business Insider, Credit.com, Bankrate.com and a few other media outlets.

National publicity has garnered international media attention for Tom and his Rich Habits research spanning 23 countries. Broadcast media, online publications, and television throughout Asia, the South Pacific, Europe, the United Kingdom, and Central and South America have shared his powerful message.

In an effort to help parents, grandparents, teachers and adults become success mentors to the younger generation, Tom released his second book, Rich Kids: How to Raise Our Children to be Happy and Successful in Life in 2014. This book was the self-help category winner of the 2015 New York Book Festival and Runner-up in the prestigious 2015 Writer’s Digest Self-Published Book Awards Contest. In 2016 Tom released his third book, Change Your Habits, Change Your Life. This book provides the latest science on habit change as well as more of Tom's unique research on the specific habits that helped transform 177 ordinary individuals into self-made millionaires.

Besides being an author, Tom is also a CPA, CFP, and hold a master’s degree in taxation. As president of Cerefice and Company, CPAs, Tom heads one of the premier financial firms in New Jersey.
