Alternatives: “An Answer”

We all have the ability to do anything we want, but we cannot do ALL the things we want.  So many people are uncertain and confused about what they want to do with their lives.  The main reason behind this is that they do not make this distinction clear; our ability to do anything and our inability to do everything.

You can become a sumo wrestler, or you can become an ice skating champion.  But you cannot become both a sumo wrestler and an ice skating champion.  Those are two inconsistent goals. Becoming a sumo wrestler is one goal or alternative, and becoming an ice skating champion is another goal or alternative.  You can do either of them, but you cannot do both.

Likewise you can spend most of your time in the USA or you can spend your life in Europe, but you have to choose.  You cannot spend most of your time in the USA and most of your time in Europe. With this in mind, you want to answer The Question with several alternatives that you would like to do.

Sumo wrestler can be one alternative, and ice skater can be another.  Sumo wrestler in the USA, Europe, or Japan is three different alternatives.  The same applies to being an ice skater in the USA, Europe, or somewhere else. So the good news is that you can do anything you want.  But the bad news is that you cannot do all the things you want.  You have to be clear on the alternatives and then decide.

The What do you want to do with your life? Program is made so that you will be able to define your alternatives. You will then be able to analyze the alternatives, come to a conclusion, and decide on The Answer to The Question.

“You can do anything you want to do, but you can’t do everything you want to do.”
– Hans Johansen
