What you want

Right now you’re on your way to somewhere. Are you clear about where and what it is?

A vague idea about your intended destination is a starting point, but not enough. Unless you are precise about where you wish to go, there’s no telling where you’ll end up.

It’s not easy to reject whole swaths of possibilities and to narrow your focus on just a few. Yet to achieve you must achieve specific things.

You can have, or experience, or be anything, but you can’t be everything or have everything. And you wouldn’t want it anyway.

That’s because much of the value and meaning of anything is in what you must forgo in order to have it. To have everything would be no different, or worse actually, than having nothing.

So choose, mindfully, authentically, where you wish to go, what you wish to do, what you want your life to become. You’ll enable yourself to find enormous fulfillment in making it happen.
