Utility

What is it you wish to have? And, just as importantly, why?

When you’re clear about what you’ll do with whatever you seek to acquire, you’ll find a way to have it. Strong purpose brings forth its own power of fulfillment.

If you have no idea how you’ll make use of something, you’re not very likely to ever get it. Yet when the utility of what you desire is tightly intertwined with your authentic purpose, it will soon be yours.

To have for the sake of having is not realistic or sustainable, nor is it really very satisfying. To have for the sake of doing and creating and giving and building, brings into play an undeniable attractive power.

The road exists because it has a destination. Your life attracts whatever facilitates your true purpose.

Know clearly what you’ll do with it. And it will be yours.

— Ralph Marston
