Stopping Short

6 Sep

We can do anything we like as we go through our lives. We can achieve the goals we desire and go anywhere we choose. Some things come easily and we hardly notice the effort it takes to move forward, but others take work and considerable time and patience to reach success. If we’re willing to push through whatever happens in order to achieve a goal, nothing will keep us from it. But sometimes we may get sidetracked because it’s difficult to continue forward, and if there have been many complications and detours, we may stop short of the end and quit. We can decide on another road at any time but if we’re giving up because the way ahead is hard and difficult, we will never gain the life we want the most. Our lives are always in our control and we can make all our dreams a reality but nothing is going to simply fall into our laps without effort. Everything we want is possible, but it’s not going to appear just because we desire it. We must be willing to do what is required to achieve it. Dreaming about how things could be is a nice diversion, but it will never make it a reality. Every goal and every destination are possible, but we have to do the work necessary to achieve them. Nothing is out of reach. We already possess everything we need to win. We can move forward with confidence and reach the destinations we desire most. We can have the lives we want and make all our dreams reality.

When a baseball player hits the ball and begins to run toward home, everyone on the other team will be determined to stop him. If he focuses on their efforts instead of the goal ahead, and believes they might prevent him from winning, he could stop short of the goal and quit. We might feel that way when we’re trying to accomplish something big. It might seem everything is working against us. Some goals are hard to reach but one thing is certain, quitting is the only guarantee of failure. It doesn’t matter what the odds are or how difficult the road may get. We can always succeed and reach any goal we desire.

Sometimes we may start out toward something we believe we want but as we push forward and get closer to it, see it isn’t exactly what we were hoping for. We never have to continue forward on a road we no longer desire. If we’ve changed or our situation has changed and we want something else, we can turn our course and move in a new direction. There is no shame or dishonor in changing our minds. We deserve the lives we want, and can design them any way we choose. We can decide where we want to go and achieve any goal before us.

Today if you’ve been pushing through obstacles and problems to achieve something and are tired of the struggle, stop and decide what you want. If the goal is still important, take another look and find the best way forward. If you’ve changed your mind and want something different, redirect your course and start again. Your life is precious and valuable, and you deserve complete happiness. Step forward toward what you want the most, and make your dreams come true. Nothing is out of reach and you will succeed.
