Not Impossible: Do What Can't Be Done
by Mick Ebeling
Discover the “road map to changing your life by changing the lives of others” (Jillian Michaels, New York Times bestselling author) with the eye-opening and inspirational story of how one person—a film producer by trade and an optimist by nature—accidentally realized that no problem is unsolvable with a little bit of DIY.
As an enthusiastic participant in the Maker Movement, Mick Ebeling has found countless ways to create new, simple, do-it-yourself technologies. But Ebeling has always dreamed big and soon realized that by ignoring that little voice of doubt in his head, his hobby could have the potential to actually help people surmount seemingly impossible odds. From crafting prosthetics for a young Sudanese boy who lost his hands in a bombing to a machine that allowed a paralyzed artist to draw again, Ebeling soon saw that nothing is actually impossible.
Now, he shares his fascinating accomplishments including the creation of the Eyewriter—a device that tracks eye movements and translates them onto a screen, allowing them to be painted on a canvas or printed into a 3D sculpture.
A true testament to the power of determination, Not Impossible is the launching pad for you to uncover your abilities to change the world, too. Bursting with optimism and new ideas, “this is the template for a new science of consciousness. Mick Ebeling sees impossible just as a word for something not yet done. Read his book. Think like him. Then do the impossible” (Deepak Chopra).
Featured Keynote Programs
Creating a Culture of Impact and Purpose
Imagine what companies could accomplish and be if their entire workforce was activated by a sense of purpose. This isn’t just about employee satisfaction, recruiting or retention; this is about tapping into the Movement of Purpose so that both companies AND society win. In this talk, Mick will delve into the creation of a Culture of Purpose and Impact and the direct effects this has on profitability, productivity, innovation and engagement.
Making The Next Industrial Revolution (Technology + Innovation)
Industrial Revolution 2.0—it’s the next turning point in human history and we’re right in the middle of it. Industrial Revolution 2.0 has been about the birth, adolescence, and young adulthood of the Internet. It’s been about communicating, relating, evaluating, and BUYING. From social media to the Maker Movement, this “revolution” has shifted the way we live, work, and interact with one another. It revolves around the newfound global accessibility to making our own solutions. Having created one of Time Magazine’s “Top 50 Inventions” with little more than $70 of over-the-counter supplies, Mick outlines the contributing factors that make this the most exciting time in modern history and how to capitalize on it for social and business good.
Teaching Innovation (Education Plus Business)
Everyone’s an innovator—but whether they know it or not is another story. Creative thinking takes place daily in business, family life and in relationships. Believe it or not, it can be taught. If we can teach our business leaders this process of innovation, our businesses can drive sustainable growth for years to come. Mick shatters the myths about what it takes to make a great innovator and provides useful techniques and solutions for teaching the art of innovation to improve your career and your life.
The Fallacy of “Impossible” (Inspirational + General)
Since the launch of the Eyewriter and Not Impossible Foundation, Mick has passionately studied the concept of “Impossible.” All the modern conveniences we see around us were once considered “impossible” by people who didn’t know any better. Synthetic fabrics, cell phones and digital watches (not to mention cars and computers) were all figments of the imagination until inspiration met execution and the impossible became a reality. In this talk, Mick dives deeper into “Impossible,” the underlying psychological affects it has on an organization, and how to overcome “Impossible” so true innovation can take place.
Thank you so much for being a part of our Pride in Execution Meeting. Everyone was buzzing about your presentation and what a tremendous impact it had. It was definitely the inspirational message I wanted to close our 'think differently" theme and meeting. Thank you for showing us the impact of helping just one person. I look forward to working with you again in the future.
Mick was one of the most engaging and dynamic keynote speakers we have hosted. His message was well-received by our audience and even now, weeks after the event, I am still hearing people discuss Mick and Not Impossible labs within the hallways of our office.
"Mick inspired us with his message that anyone can make a positive difference right now.There was a standing ovation at the end of his talk, and more than a year later I still hear from people that Mick motivated them to do something meaningful, to act, and tomake a difference."
