Freedom

11 Mar

We are in control of our lives and can do anything we like, but there are a lot of distractions around us all the time. People come and go and ask for our time and effort, we have responsibilities to attend to, and it may seem there is a never-ending list of things we need to do. We are very capable and can manage anything we must, and our lives are a reflection of all the choices we make. There are endless suggestions and advertisements around us about how we should be living, what we should be doing, where we should go, and what success means. We can certainly listen to anything we like, go here and there, follow this lead and that, and skip around indefinitely trying to figure out what to do next. Our personal freedom is very important but it’s hard to feel free when we’re constantly doing what someone else decides. If we aren’t sure about what we want, it’s unlikely that doing what everyone else chooses will help us find it. We are intelligent and if we stop and give ourselves time to think before we jump, we will discover what is most important to us. By exercising personal discipline, we will unlock our personal freedom. It seems counterintuitive that discipline leads to freedom but it’s the only way to find out who we really are and what we really want. It’s fun to go freewheeling around from time to time, but we cannot move forward by moving in a hundred directions. Every goal we desire is possible and by focusing on the road ahead, we can reach success. We can trust ourselves and move forward with confidence. We are more powerful and wise than we imagine, and already possess everything we need to go anywhere we want.

When we’re in control of our lives we feel strong and confident. If we’re following through on choices we most want, the road ahead will open, and we’ll be able to proceed. There will be few times when everything goes exactly the way we want it to, and we perform perfectly. Everyone falters and stumbles sometimes but falling doesn’t mean we’ve failed. We have endless chances to get up and start again. By trusting ourselves and believing we will prevail, we can continue forward, sure of success.

If we’re pondering a goal but aren’t quite committed, we may think about it, talk about, plan for it, and do nothing as we wait to decide. Dreams are great but they can’t become reality unless we do what is needed to make them ours. It’s nice to think about being strong and fit, but if we never exercise, we’ll never get there. By deciding what we want, and then disciplining ourselves in ways that help us achieve it, we will find great satisfaction and freedom. Every possibility is there for us. We need only decide how we want to proceed.

Today if there’s something you’ve been wanting to do but haven’t moved forward, begin now. Plan your life in ways that will help you achieve what you want most. You are capable of accomplishing anything. Every single dream is possible. Be confident and step forward. Every success is there for you, and you will reach it.
