Lifeboat

22 Sep

Life is complicated and there are a lot of things to take care of, manage, and watch over. Everyone wants to be strong and healthy, and we have a lot of information about what we need to do to accomplish that. We need to eat the right foods in the right quantities, get plenty of rest, drink water and exercise. Everyone knows these things, but our lives are busy and although we want to be healthy, we may not take the time to do what is necessary to achieve it. We may grab fast food on the go, work too late or too much and become sleep deprived, and decide to sit and watch TV instead of getting the exercise we need. Maybe we think we’ll change later when things settle down, but life continues on, and rarely slows down for anyone. Time continues its march forward and before we know it, years may have passed and we haven’t done anything differently. We own every decision we make and the results that come. Many people believed the Titanic was unsinkable. After it hit the iceberg and started taking on water, some thought it wouldn’t be an issue and they’d be fine. When a few passengers started boarding the lifeboats, others remained behind, confident everything would be fine. The first lifeboats went out only half full, and when the Titanic tilted and began to sink, everyone panicked, and wanted one, but by then it was too late. We can do anything we like, but if we don’t do what is needed to get to the goals we desire, it’s like deciding not to get on the lifeboat. We may not sink in a ship, but we may suffer consequences we don’t want. Our lives are ours to design and we can create them any way we like. By deciding what we want the most, and then taking control of our decisions, we can reach any goal we desire. Everything is possible if we’re willing to do what is needed to make it ours. We are capable and wise, and when we’re ready, nothing is out of reach.

Change will never happen simply because we desire it. If we want something different, we actually have to do something different. Staying in a bad relationship, keeping an unfulfilling job, or repeating behaviors that bring us difficulty will never make us happy. Our happiness is important and we can change whatever we need to make sure we achieve it. We are powerful enough and brave enough to do anything we desire. We need only take the first step and continue forward, and we’ll reach the goal.

It’s good to be independent, but if we want to do something that is very difficult and we are unsure, we can ask for help. We all have different experiences and no matter what we’re trying to do, odds are someone will have information that will assist us. By reaching out to those around us, we can get the support we need to move forward and reach success. There is greatness inside us, and with persistence and determination, we can move mountains.

Today if you’re in a difficult situation and feel like you’re going under, trust yourself. Look at everything possible, and do what is needed to pave the road ahead. You have so much to offer. Be wise and make decisions that will move you closer to the goal. Nothing is out of reach. You are in control of your life and can do anything you desire. Decide what you want, and step forward. Every success is possible and you will prevail.
