Consider this possibility

Always, possibilities surround you, your work, the people in your life, your dreams for the future. Many of those possibilities, you have never considered.

When you and another person strongly disagree, consider this possibility. In some very significant ways, you might both be right.

When every attempt fails to bring fruit, when every path is blocked, consider this possibility. There is some other path, some other strategy, some other approach with which you will succeed.

When you’re angry, annoyed, offended by what someone else has done, consider this possibility. That person’s behavior is their problem, and is much more about them than it is about you.

You’ve seen many possibilities become real, yet you haven’t seen them all, not by a long shot. In every situation, be assured that there are many more possibilities than you’ve ever imagined.

Life becomes challenging, and what has served you well in the past may no longer work. Even so, take heart, for there’s always another great possibility ready and waiting for you to run with it.

— Ralph Marston
