Disguised

2 Jul

Life is full of challenges and trials. Some things come easily but many times we have to work through problems and complications to get what we want. People and situations may get in our way, and we may be frustrated just trying to take another step forward. Obstacles are a normal part of life and we all face them from time to time. They interrupt our plans, and give us grief. When we’re facing a big obstacle, it may be a huge impasse and inconvenience. But we can look closer and discover opportunities. Every challenge has value and some sort of blessing attached to it. Many opportunities are disguised at first as obstacles. When we come upon them, instead of pulling our hair out and screaming because there is yet something else blocking us, we can step back and look at everything objectively. Yes there’s something in the way, but if we look under the surface, we may see there is also an opportunity hidden beneath. Hard trials are difficult, but as we navigate through them we gain additional strength. Complicated issues may confound us, but as we untangle them we gain increased knowledge. No matter what we’re facing, no matter how dire things seem, there are benefits to be gained as we confront them. Everything may look jumbled up and confused at first, but as we peel back each layer and solve each problem, the road ahead will clear and we will find our way forward. We are intelligent and capable, and there isn’t anything too difficult for us to manage. By taking things one step at a time, and looking carefully at each development, opportunities will arise and we will prevail. We are amazingly strong and can do anything. The whole world is there for us, and nothing can keep us from success.

There will be few times when everything we plan goes exactly as predicted. Some roads will be paved and clear, and we’ll advance easily and comfortably, but those experiences are rare. Most of the time there will be snags and complications. If we’ve been pushing through trouble for a while, we may begin to believe the goal isn’t possible, and it might not be possible right now. We can set it aside and wait for our situation to change, and then go back and start again. Every destination is there for us and with patience and determination, we can do anything.

Dreaming and planning for what we want is important, but until we begin to do what is necessary to gain the goal, nothing will change. There is no magic genie to grant us three wishes, or a fairy godmother to magically change our situation. We are in control of our lives, and if we want something different, we can make it happen. We are more powerful than we imagine, and nothing is out of reach. By trusting ourselves, standing strong, and moving forward with confidence, we can make our dreams come true.

Today if there’s a big obstacle in your way and you’re stuck and frustrated, look at everything clearly and objectively. There is an opening there for you and an opportunity to advance, and you will find it. Every single dream is possible, and nothing can keep you from success. Be confident and step forward. You will reach the destination.
