Opportunities multiply as they are seized, they die when neglected.

Limits

If you had all the time in the world, you wouldn’t ever get anything done. Because you could always, always, do it later.

If you had all the money in the world, whatever you bought would mean nothing to you. Because you could always buy more.

The reason you’re able to value your time is because it is limited. The reason money has value is because there is not an unlimited supply of it.

Limits can feel oppressive and burdensome. Yet those same limits are what make things precious and valuable.

Limits provide a structure within which you can work to flourish. It is by making your way through a world with limits that you create and experience fulfillment.

See life’s limits for the opportunities they are. Sieze those opportunities with joy, with enthusiasm, and make them into real life value.

— Ralph Marston
