We all have times in our lives when fear and excuses overpower us and get in our way. In this speech, Jessica explains that excuses can be so easy to use and “get away with”. We seldom have anyone who holds us accountable to our dreams. What works to defeat fear and excuses then? Commitment does. Commitment clears a path to achieving the impossible. You need to develop the level of commitment where—when you commit to a goal—you can’t back out, you won’t back out.

We all have hidden assets of Determination, Courage, and Willpower. They are there under the surface all along. To achieve the impossible, we need to uncover those assets and apply them to our impossible goals. Jessica illustrates that determination is an unshakeable persistence that doesn’t give up ever for any reason—far beyond the expectations of others. Courage is the ability to rise above fears to snatch the impossible into possibility. Willpower is an unwavering yet flexible application of our own will to a problem. It’s flexibility that adds steel to the will.

Jessica’s stories transform adversity into inspiration for her audience. Her attitude, her approach entertains while also nudging people to examine and drop their own self-imposed limitations. Jessica challenges her audiences to make a shift from an inward focus to the big picture of possibility. Her monumental journey of learning to fly crystalizes her ideas of “achieving the impossible.” Inspiration alone—without motivation to action—is a failure. Inspiration must also provoke action. It’s action that transforms your situation.
