Phrase of the day “The sky’s the limit”

We use this phrase to

say that anything is possible. It's common when encouraging someone or talking about your own possibilities.

It’s used formally and informally, and can be both spoken or written.

Here’s an example:

Tony 🗣 “So, you've opened up a new shop in Bath, and there's one in Bristol. What’s next?”

Pete 🗣 “The sky's the limit. We could have another 20 shops by the end of the year, maybe even more?”

    does it have the same meaning as "nothing is impossible"?

    Thanks a lot. I have understood the meaning of the phrase. In China, there is also a phrase that the meaning is similar to “the sky’s the limit”. But I have a question that why not “the sky is not the limit”. Because word-for-word translation in Chinese sounds incorrect.

    @Flora sorry if my explanation was hard to understand. Please ask further questions if that didn’t make sense

    @Flora 就像我们汉语说,天有多大,心就有多大。而不是形容天空本身。
