You can do anything, but…

Oh the power of the ellipsis.  What does it mean? The … it means there is more to follow.

have you ever watched the film “Back to the Future”? The movie is an American classic. The film is a must watch and if you haven’t seen it, stop reading this and go watch it. Buy the dvd and watch it. If you have seen the movie, then you will remember, doc Brown and Marty. For those who haven’t seen it and are still reading instead of watching,  Marty and Doc Brown are the two protagonist in the movie. Doc mentors Marty and tells him “If you  put your mind to it you can do anything.” Guess what? Doc was right.

The human being is an amazing animal. Man has walked on the moon, been to the bottom of the Marianas trench, basically eradicated polio.  All this has happened and yet 65 % of the world has gone un- explored. Seems impossible right?  Well 71 % of the world is covered in water and of that 71 % only 5 % has been explored by man.

Why does any of this matter? Because, sometimes in life, we can feel like Alexander.

“And when Alexander saw the breadth of his domain, he wept, for there were no more worlds to conquer.”

But, weep not there are so many worlds to conquer! The world the universe seems to have no end. You can dream as big as you want! You can do anything, and (instead of but) there is much work that needs to be done and there is no end of discovery for the brilliant, imaginative and intrepid.

Do not weep and “if you put your mind to it, you can do anything”.
