Possessions is one of those English words that has different meanings. As a coach I used to preach “Win this Possession” to the teams I coached. Translated the next possession becomes the “game within the game”. Do your best on the next play. Its the same as do your best in the present moment.
Owning stuff is a definition of possession also. A few weeks ago I read something that struck me as spot on.
There is more joy in pursuing less than can be found in pursuing more.
Chasing property, valuables, or any type of possession steals our time and often all of our energy. What we all should be spending our time and energy on his creating a life of significance. Significance is found I believe in helping others. Significance is created when you seek to improve a relationships.
I think all of us know internally that “possessions or stuff” don’t give us joy. We also know that we may impress people with our possessions but we cannot inspire them. There is a big difference between being impressed and inspired.
I have also found that people that seek significance in their lives often find contentment but those chasing material possessions seem to be never satisfied.
Maybe being the best we can be in this very moment should be our most prized possession of all.
