Another Setback

18 Feb

When we start out on a new journey and are determined to reach a goal, we may be filled with excitement and sure we’ll succeed. Of course, we can do anything we set our minds to, but that doesn’t mean the goal we’ve chosen will be easy or without complications. There are few times in life when the road ahead is straight, clear and paved and no problems get in our way. Often, things will happen we can’t see at the beginning, obstacles will present we couldn’t predict or imagine, and we may get hung up. Some goals are hard to achieve and no matter how diligently we press forward, we may struggle to move ahead. If we’ve been on the road for a while and there have been many difficulties, we may get tired and start to wonder why we’re continuing on. Another setback may be more than we want to face and we may consider giving up and letting go. We’re always in control of our lives and can change direction whenever we choose and move on to other things. But if the goal is important and we really want to achieve it, we can manage whatever happens that gets in the way. We can keep our focus on the road ahead, even if there are obstacles blocking us. Every goal can be accomplished if we’re willing to do what’s needed to get there. We can decide what we want most, look at all the options before us, and choose the way forward that takes us to the destination we desire. We have all the determination and courage we need to accomplish anything. Every dream is possible and we can make them come true.

Some roads are beautifully paved, with nice straight lines and clear signs to point the way forward. It’s always easy to go the same way as everyone else along a well-traveled road to common places. But if we want something different, the way forward may be more difficult. We may have to travel roads alone that are rocky and rough, with no signs to help us along. We know where we want to go and what we want to accomplish. No matter what’s in the way, there isn’t anything that can keep us from the goals we desire most. We have everything we need to find our way forward and reach any destination.

When we’re trying to move forward and something goes wrong, we can step aside and find the solution. If another problem comes up, we can do it again. It doesn’t matter how many setbacks arise or how many detours we have to take. The goal will always be there for us and if we stay the course and continue forward, we will reach it. Life isn’t always easy, but we have everything we need to reach any destination if we’re willing to continue forward despite what comes. We can do anything. We are powerful and wise, and nothing is out of reach.

Today if you’re facing another setback on the road to a goal, and you’re feeling overwhelmed and tired, decide what you want the most. If the goal is still important, keep going. Find the answers you need to continue, and step forward. You are amazing and powerful, and nothing is beyond your reach. Everything you dream can come true. Be confident. The goal is just ahead and you will reach it.
