We must learn to reawaken and keep ourselves awake, not by mechanical aid, but by an infinite expectation of the dawn.

Prioritize your possibilities

Life has more possibilities than you can ever realize. It’s in your best interest to let some of them go.

Don’t get to the point where you’re so consumed with hoarding possibilities that you have no time to work on them. Prioritize your possibilities so you can actually fulfill some of them.

It’s great to have the options that all life’s possibilities offer. Yet for options to have any value, you have to exercise some and discard others.

Walking away from any of your treasured possibilities can be painful. Understand, though, that pain is a small price to pay for being able to fulfill other, more meaningful possibilities.

Do you really want to spend all your time protecting, maintaining, and keeping track of way too many possibilities? Or would you prefer to spend your time and effort bringing a select number of those possibilities to life?

Pick some possibilities to keep and to work on, and set aside the rest. Give yourself the freedom and the ability to make the best possibilities happen.
