“To do the impossible, you need to ignore the popular”

"To do the impossible, you need to ignore the popular” is an inspirational saying that has been printed on many images. American entrepreneur and author Tim Ferriss said in his book, The 4-Hour Body: An Uncommon Guide to Rapid Fat-Loss, Incredible Sex, and Becoming Superhuman (2010):

“German poet Johann Wolfgang Goethe had the right perspective: ‘Mysteries are not necessarily miracles.’ To do the impossible (sail around the world, break the four-minute mile, reach the moon), you need to ignore the popular.”

“Everything popular is wrong. To do the impossible (sail the world, break the 4-minute mile, reach the moon), you need to ignore the popular” was posted on Twitter by GrandNOBLE on December 12, 2010. “To do the impossible, you need to ignore the popular” was posted on Facebook by Tim Ferriss on April 19, 2013.
