Standing By

25 Jun

There are a lot of things we want to accomplish in our lives, and we can reach any goal we desire. If all the parameters of success are up to us, and we have control over each step forward, it may be easy to reach the goal. But life is complicated, and many times our success depends not only on what we do, but on what’s going on around us, and the decisions being made by others. We’re all more connected than we think we are, and things happening far beyond our reach may prevent us from moving ahead. It’s not easy to wait when we want to move, and it’s hard to be patient when we’ve done all we can and must wait for the situation to change. Standing by and watching others move forward while we stand still can be maddening. If we’ve done all we can, and still are unable to progress, we will have to wait. If it looks like the wait will be long, we can set the goal aside and begin working on something else. We never have to stand in place indefinitely. We can set our sights on something new, and when things change and the road opens up ahead, we can start again, and proceed toward the original goal. Every destination is possible but timing is everything. What we want may not be available to us right now but that doesn’t mean it will never be possible. What’s out of reach at the moment will not be out of reach forever. We can be patient and work on other projects and goals until we are able to gain success. Every option is always there for us, and there are many ways to reach success. We can trust ourselves to find the answers we need, and if we must wait, can still proceed forward. All our dreams can be ours, and we can reach every destination we desire.

Sometimes it seems the road ahead is paved and we move forward with few problems, accomplishing the task with little discomfort. Other times, it seems that everything that could possibly hold us in place comes into play and we struggle to make even the tiniest bit of headway. Trouble moving forward doesn’t mean the goal isn’t meant for us or we won’t be able to succeed. Complications give us the chance to learn something new and refine our patience. We can do anything, and already have everything we need to get to any destination. Through wisdom and persistence, we can reach the goal, and have the lives we dream about.

Standing by and waiting for a chance to move forward toward an accomplishment cannot keep us from completing other goals. There are many destinations available to us and if one is locked up now, we can focus on another. Life is long and there is time to achieve the things that are most important to us. We can design our lives any way we like, and with patience and focus, will make our dreams come true.

Today if you’re standing by, waiting for things to change so you can move ahead, look at all the possibilities available. Step toward another goal and actively move forward. Your life belongs to you and every goal is possible. Decide what you want, and take the first step toward it. You are amazing and capable, and nothing is beyond your reach. Success is there for you, and you will reach it.
