Finally Enough

14 Jul

Our lives belong solely to us and we can do anything we like. Everyone has an idea of how they want things to go and what they want to do, but the desire to accomplish something isn’t always enough motivation to get us moving. We may really, really want to lose weight, but somehow find a way each day to sabotage our efforts. We might truly want a new career, but don’t take the time we need to start looking for other options and preparing for something new. Desiring something is only the first step toward getting there. Whatever we want to achieve is possible, but we must follow through on what is necessary to make the dream reality. There is enough wisdom and intelligence in all of us to do whatever we want, but we have to decide once and for all that it will be ours, and then focus clearly on doing what is needed to obtain it. If we’ve wavered for a long time, and have experienced several failures to follow through, it’s not too late. Once we finally decide we’ve had enough delaying and putting it off, we can begin the journey forward. People are complex and there will always be a thousand reasons to wait on any decision. We might be really busy, and have a lot of projects going on right now. Or our relationships may require a lot of attention. Or we don’t feel at our best, or it’s raining outside. If we want an excuse to stay put and do nothing, there will always be something available. There are lots of reasons why we may not pursue what we want, but if we really want to accomplish the goal, nothing can keep us from it. We just have to decide what we want the most. Once we’ve decided, we can do what is needed to take the first step. We can have the lives we want the most if we’re willing to take control and make them ours. Nothing is out of reach, and we will find our way to success.

Nobody sets out to take a trip without deciding where they’ll go. If we simply get in our cars and drive all day with no planned destination, the odds of ending up where we want to go are slim to none. We can live our days simply following along and taking whatever comes and hope we’ll end up with the lives we desire most, but that isn’t likely to happen. If we want to be happy, we must decide where we’ll go and what we’ll do, and then begin forward with purpose. Every destination is there for us, and with clarity and determination, we can make them ours.

Most things are achievable but not everything will come easily. Getting fit and losing weight takes constant diligence and focus, gaining a new career will require research and maybe additional education. If we determine that the cost to achieve the goal is worth the benefit once we get there, we can make a plan and step forward. Everything is possible and nothing is too difficult or too far away. We know what we want, and have everything we need to get it.

Today if you’ve been putting off a goal you want to achieve, decide what you want the most. There isn’t anything you can’t accomplish. Make a plan and step forward with confidence. Every dream is possible and with focus and patience, you can make them yours.
