Far Away

15 Jun

Life is full of possibilities and every decision we make takes us somewhere. There are endless roads to travel and we decide what we want to do and where we want to go. We do our best to make good decisions, but we can never see the end of the road from the beginning, and sometimes we may end up going somewhere we didn’t expect and don’t want. Unless we live on a deserted island all by ourselves (unlikely), there will always be others around us giving advice and telling us what they think we should do. They may influence us and we might choose what they suggest that seems good at first but doesn’t turn out the way we want it to. We are always in control of our lives and can do anything we like, but if we’re easily swayed by the decisions of those around us, we might find ourselves heading toward a destination we do not want. It’s easy to follow others. We can let them pave the road ahead and mimic their steps moving forward. But following someone else’s journey will never take us where we want to go. We may end up far away from the destinations we truly desire, and find ourselves in places we never wanted to visit. If we find we’re headed in the wrong direction, we can stop, and review all the options possible. Then we can decide what we want to do, and step on a new road that will take us to success. With focus and clarity, we can chart the road ahead and go anywhere we desire. Every destination is there for us, and we already possess everything we need to reach them. Our lives are ours to design. We can do whatever is needed to get the lives we want the most, and find complete happiness and success.

Every journey begins with the first step forward. After we decide what we want to do, we can begin moving and plan for success. We can only see what’s just ahead and there is no way to predict what complications or problems may arise. The first step is important, but it doesn’t freeze us in place. We are not required to continue on any road if it turns and is headed somewhere we don’t want to go. There are endless possibilities and we can stop and take another path at any time. We determine our own destiny, and can do anything we desire.

It’s easy to live our lives on auto-pilot. We get into a routine and go through the motions one after the other, and before we know it lots of time has gone by and we’re far away from the destinations we want the most. To get the lives we desire most, we have to choose our destinations and live purposely focused on getting there. We can do anything we like but living on purpose takes attention. If we only coast through, and don’t design our journey forward, it will be impossible to achieve our dreams. Nothing can keep us from the destinations we desire most but ourselves. Every option is possible and we can achieve great happiness and satisfaction.

Today if you’re nowhere near where you want to be, look at all the possibilities and decide how you want to proceed. All your dreams are possible and with determination and clarity, you can make them yours. Decide what you want and step forward with confidence. You are amazing and powerful, and can have the life you desire most.
