Now what?

Great news! You’ve just found out that you won the lottery. You’ll be picking up your check for ten million dollars tomorrow morning.

Now what are you going to do?

Even better news! Your are immortal. You are going to live forever.

Now what are you going to do?

And, still better news. You are all powerful. Anything you desire, will happen.

Now what are you going to do?

And to top it all off, you have the love and admiration of every person alive. Whatever you do, will be applauded and genuinely appreciated by all of humanity.

Now what are you going to do?

What, indeed. What if all your limitations and challenges were suddenly removed? Think about the reality of that situation. You have unlimited resources, unlimited time, unlimited power and unlimited love.

How will you find joy, fulfillment, triumph and meaning in your life? If you have no limitations or challenges to define you, then who are you anyway? What is the purpose of your existence?

We all have within us the potential for the unlimited, tempered with the reality of our challenges. And the point at which they meet, is what we call life.

— Ralph Marston
