Better possibilities

What do you want for your life, for all of life? How can you be sure there’s not something much, much better?

Could you be seeking some particular thing so single-mindedly that you fail to see other, more desirable possibilities? Might you be sabotaging your own fulfillment by envisioning fulfillment in a far too limited way?

It’s all well and good to get what you desire. But perhaps it’s even better sometimes when you don’t get what you desire.

When your path to fulfillment is blocked, you’re forced to consider other paths. That’s not such a bad thing.

Surely there are possibilities you’re not aware of. Be careful not to let your obsession with just a few possibilities blind you to all the others.

Clarify your intentions, set your goals, and go for them. But never let that stop you from being open to everything else that is possible.

— Ralph Marston
