Obstacle Course

7 Mar

Everything we do has an effect on our lives. The decisions we make have the possibility of moving us forward toward the goals we seek, or holding us in place where we stand. Which way it goes depends on what we choose. We can do anything we like and are in control of where we go. If we’re focused on a goal and determined to succeed, chances are we’ll make decisions that will push us closer to it. But life is filled with all kinds of distractions and impressions, and there may be times when we choose something even if we know it may hold us back. We have many different ideas and emotions that affect us in many ways, and may develop patterns that impact our decisions. If they’re detrimental, we may find we’ve created an obstacle course and will have to dodge something in the way or crawl through a complication we’ve created. Our lives are a reflection of the choices we make. There are endless variations possible and if we choose a temporary fix over a successful solution, we may be able to take one step forward but the road ahead may elude us. Sometimes we know the choice we’re making may bring additional confusion or problems, but because of influences around us or our personal desires, may make it anyway. It’s like someone who wants to lose weight but has the chocolate cake anyway. Every goal we want to accomplish is possible but we must be our best advocates when deciding how to achieve it. We can make decisions that will move us forward and bring success. We possess all the self-control and wisdom we need to get to the goal. Nothing is too difficult for us to manage and we can have the lives we desire.

It’s impossible to find success if we haven’t decided what we really want. Talk is cheap and we can say we want this or that, but until we actually begin moving toward the goal, it’s only fantasy. We can spend our lives dreaming of how we wish things were or we can do what is needed to make them a reality. Our lives belong solely to us and we can design them any way we like. With perseverance and determination, we can make choices that move us closer to where we want to be and achieve any goal.

Nothing can hold us back more effectively than procrastination. It’s a habit that can paralyze our lives and keep us in place. Putting something off until tomorrow will never move us closer to our goals. There will always be another tomorrow and if we persist in putting things off, may find years have gone by and we’re no closer to where we want to be. It’s possible to stay in one place our entire lives if we do nothing to advance. Every dream is possible but we must take control and pursue the road ahead to make them come true. We can do anything. We can decide what we want and then do what is needed to make it ours.

Today if you’ve been making decisions that are creating situations that stand in your way, think about what you want the most. You can do anything but you must focus on the goal to make it yours. Decide to take control and start on the road that will bring you success. You are capable and wise, and nothing is out of reach. Step forward and make your dreams come true. Everything is possible and you will succeed.
