Embrace your best possibilities

Anger is a way of avoiding the things that will really bring fulfillment to your life. So is resentment.

In fact, so are envy, procrastination, perfectionism, apathy, overindulgence, and a whole lot of other negative behaviors and attitudes. They all enable you to avoid the fulfillment of your true purpose.

Why would you want to avoid that fulfillment? Because it feels more comfortable to just stay where you are.

But comfort is highly overrated. Deep down, you don’t really want just comfort.

Deep down, you have a burning desire to express the unique and magnificent person you truly are. Deep down, your spirit longs to soar to heights that you cannot even imagine.

What feels like comfort now, will soon become regret, but you don’t have to let that happen. Stop hiding from your purpose, embrace your best possibilities, and give life the beautiful meaning that you know it can have.
