Whatever Can Go Wrong

30 Jan

When we’re pushing toward something complicated we want to accomplish, there may be unforeseen developments and we never know what will happen next. If we’ve been on the road for a while, and many things have gone wrong, it can be hard to keep our motivation level up. Sometimes it may seem that whatever could possibly go wrong, does go wrong. When there’s one blockade after another, and every step forward seems to push us two steps back, it’s hard to continue to believe we can succeed. Some goals are very difficult to achieve. That’s why the hardest and yet most desired goals are often left behind. It’s hard to keep trying when it seems everything we do goes south. But with determination and focus, we can reach any goal, no matter how hard. There is an old saying that, “Nothing worth having comes easily.” That’s often true. We can stand back and be happy with what’s readily available, learning to accept mediocrity. Or we can resolve that no matter how hard the road is ahead, we will continue forward until we reach the destination. Greatness is possible, but it will take constant work and careful attention. We can have the lives we want if we’re willing to do what it takes to get them. Every destination is possible but they won’t all come with ease. Our dreams won’t simply come true because we desire them, or we’re good people, or we think we deserve them. We must do what is required to make them ours. We are strong and powerful and have all the wisdom we need to accomplish anything we desire. Trusting ourselves and being confident will move us forward, and we will prevail.

Before beginning toward any goal, it’s helpful to look at everything we can see that might be involved, and think about possible complications that may arise. Planning is beneficial, but we can’t read the future, and even when we try hard to prepare for what may come, we may be surprised by developments along the way. We don’t know what we don’t know. There will always be something happening we couldn’t foresee, and the road ahead may get convoluted and twisted up. Problems may arise, but we are intelligent and with patience, and careful consideration, will find our way through.

There may be times when there are so many obstacles and detours, we cannot move ahead. Change is constant, and timing is everything. What isn’t possible today may be easily accessible tomorrow. If we can’t get through and push closer to the goal right now, we can set it aside until our situation changes and then, start again. We are capable of discerning the best way forward, and can make the best decisions regarding our next steps. We can reach any destination we choose, and have the lives we desire most.

Today if you’re stuck and can’t move forward toward a goal you’re seeking, look at all the options possible. If the goal isn’t available now, set it aside and plan for it in the future. You are wise and amazing, and nothing is beyond your reach. Decide what you want to do and step forward with confidence. Success is there for you, and you will reach it.
