Exercise your possibilities

It’s great to have plenty of positive possibilities and desirable options, yet they are not enough. For those possibilities to have value, you must exercise them.

You cannot live and prosper just on possibilities. A great life comes from putting forth the effort to do great things with whatever possibilities you have.

You cannot get by just on your skills, your knowledge, your connections and your ambition. You must put those things to work in a meaningful way.

By all means, gather and embrace the best possibilities every chance you get. And by all means, act on them.

Take those great possibilities, add your own time and effort, and transform it all into rich, valuable life experience. Instead of just sitting endlessly on a beautiful beach thinking to yourself how great it is, jump in and go for a swim.

There is so very much you have going for you, so make good use of it. Treasure the great possibilities, and get busy transforming them into a truly great life.

— Ralph Marston
