The First Step

16 Nov

Our lives are under our control and we can make any decisions we choose. If we want to go somewhere we can make a plan and begin toward the destination. If we want a change we can determine how to make that happen and do what is needed. There isn’t anything we can’t accomplish if we have enough desire and the willingness to do what we must to succeed. But before we do anything the first step is to decide what we want. There are endless choices available and no matter what we choose there will be a way to gain it. If we like, we can ask those around us for advice but the opinions of others won’t decide our future. We are the ones in charge and are responsible for our decisions. We are always in control of what we do. If we simply go along as things happen and allow life to unfold as it will with no input from us, we may leave dreams unrealized and goals unmet. If we want to be happy and feel fulfilled we must take control of our direction forward to ensure we end up where we want to go. The world will do what it will, those around us will live their lives as they choose, and our decisions are ours to make. We deserve complete happiness but we are the only ones who can give it to us. We can make sure the path we’re on is exactly where we want to be. We have everything we need to have the lives we desire. We can decide how we want to go forward and then take the steps that will get us there.
If we’re unhappy we can spend our days complaining and wishing for something better. Neither of those activities will bring success. Complaining only reminds us of the situation making us miserable and wishes only come true in fairy tales. It’s easy to get stuck in a routine that isn’t working simply because we know it so well. But we are in control of our lives and can do anything we like. We can change anything at any time. If we aren’t happy where we are, we can move. If we don’t like the situation we’re in, we can change. Happiness is always there for us but we must seek it and do what is needed to find it.

Before we begin any journey, we must have a defined destination. It isn’t enough to say we are going to change our lives. We must clarify what that change means and where it will take us. Once we know what we truly desire we can make a plan to move forward toward it. Everything is possible and every destination is within reach. Nothing is too difficult to achieve or too far to find. We can do anything we choose. Perfect happiness is possible and with courage and determination we will reach it.

Today if you feel unsatisfied with your life and don’t like where you are, decide where you want to go and begin moving forward to get there. You deserve the very best of everything. Take control. Turn your course toward the light and reach for what you want. Begin to change what you must to find complete happiness. The whole world is yours for the taking. Happiness is there for you and you will reach it.
