What's life without risk? What is there to strive for, if not some "impossible" feat? I don't know if I've ever been so disappointed as when I read an article, years back, where a world recognized AIDS researcher was quoted as saying, "We will never find a cure for HIV."
I was devastated. To think, that someone held in such high regard, someone in charge of an entire health Institute, could have so little faith or conviction. I mean, seriously. What if Edison had said there would never be light, or what if the great men behind the first rocket-ship to the moon had said it was impossible–we'll never get there?
You have to reach for what you want. BELIEVE for what you want. I BELIEVE we'll see the cure for HIV, and right now, this very minute, there are some amazing, scientific minds who are believing for it too. They won't give up and neither will I. I simply cannot. And if you're a mom, or know and love someone with HIV, then you understand.
What is it that you want for with all your being? A new car? A book deal? A healthy child? A cure for a disease that was once proclaimed impossible to cure? Whatever it is...don't let the nay-sayers, or your own uncertainty hold you back. Start today, and just reach for it.
