Waiting

1 Jun

The world is huge and there are unlimited opportunities to do something new. We may think about something we want to accomplish, consider all the possibilities, and ponder how it will be when we reach the goal. We can think about what we want indefinitely and wait for the right time to arrive before we begin. While there are times in everyone’s life when there are complications and we can’t manage anything new, waiting for the perfect time to start on something we really want is a fool’s game. There are few, if any, times when everything lines up and we can see a paved road ahead to the destinations we desire. It’s like waiting on a shooting star. Yes, they happen, but standing in the dark night after night looking up at the sky and hoping one will appear before we begin forward is wasted time. We don’t need a perfect opening to start a new journey. We can begin at any time, no matter where we are or what’s going on, and figure out how to proceed. Life is complex and there is no way to predict what will happen next. Waiting around for the perfect, easy moment to move ahead will only hold us in place. If we want the goal, and are ready to proceed, we can take the first steps forward. We may need to re-organize our responsibilities, and plan carefully, but we have everything necessary to begin. Once we start moving toward the goal, we will find all the answers we need to reach success. Every single destination is there for us. The lives we dream of are possible. We need only decide what we want, and then step forward to make it ours. Every dream is waiting, and with determination and focus, we can make them ours.

There are endless reasons why we shouldn’t move toward our personal goals. They may take a lot of planning, they might require a lot of time, we may have to change our routine, and a million other possible complications. We can put our dreams on hold for now, and plan to get to them later, and that might work. But if we don’t control where we’re headed, chances are the details of our lives will take over. If we want to reach our personal goals, we must drive our own train toward them. There isn’t anything we can’t accomplish if we really want it.

Work has a way of expanding to fill the time we give it. If our to-do list is long, and we don’t set aside time for our own personal growth, we may spend all our time checking off boxes and going nowhere. Our lives belong to us and we are responsible for our own happiness. It isn’t selfish to focus on what we want the most. By making our personal goals a priority, and setting aside time and attention to achieve them, we’ll find great satisfaction and happiness in reaching success.

Today if you’ve been putting off your personal goals and waiting until the time is right to begin, look at all the options before you. The road to every goal is there for you. Decide what you want the most and take the first step forward. Keep your eyes focused ahead and begin your journey. Every destination is waiting, and nothing can keep you from success.
