One who attempts the absurd may achieve the impossible

This plaque of a flying seagull carrying an elephant in its beak hangs in Patty’s office. It states “One who attempts the absurd may achieve the impossible.” What a powerful symbol of achievement in the face of overwhelming odds!

The words on this plaque describe Patty’s skills and commitment as a Certified Life Coach. She loves guiding her clients to become like that seagull and achieve what they thought was impossible.
