Beyond everyday concerns

Imagine having enough money to last for a thousand lifetimes. Imagine that you have already bought everything you could ever think to buy.

Imagine that you have no need to prove anything or to impress anyone. Imagine that all your goals have been reached and exceeded.

Imagine that you have broken free of every limitation, and that whatever you choose to accomplish, you’re able to accomplish. In such a situation, what exactly would you choose to accomplish?

Imagine that you could wake up each morning and spend the day doing the things that are the most meaningful and fulfilling to you. If that were the case, exactly what would you spend the day doing?

The fact is, you do have those choices even now. You can decide this very day to follow the path that holds the greatest meaning for you, no matter what your situation may be.

For that is the path that will most dramatically improve your situation. In your mind, get past the everyday concerns, and you’ll discover how to truly move beyond them.
