Possessive impulses

The creative impulses of man are always at war with the possessive impulses.

If you want to do amazing things in your life, then you’ll need to let go of some or most of the things that are holding you back from true creativity — your possessions. It’s impossible to move freely about if you’re burdened by the things that you’re attached to emotionally and physically. Let go of the stuff that doesn’t really matter in your life and focus on what does: your survival, health, friendships, spirituality and career. Letting go will get you going and doing things you never imagined you could ever do. Soar above the clouds and fix your eyes on what is most important in life: self-enlightenment. Once you find it, you will have found what no possession in life can offer. So, try being more creative with your impulses and less possessive with them and you’ll be on your way to greater achievements.
