Standing Around and Waiting

21 Jan

Life is filled with opportunities and there are always roads to travel and places to go. Everyone has their own ideas about what they want to accomplish and the destinations they want to reach. We can decide to do whatever we desire, make a plan and set forth determined to reach the goal. We’re in complete control of everything we do, but that is all. Other people may make decisions that stand in our way, situations may develop we don’t expect, and the road may turn away from us. Things are constantly changing, and although we may be very clear on what we want to do, we may face times when it seems everything is working against us. The door ahead may be closed and shut down and we might get stopped in our tracks. We can’t move ahead, and we’re stuck. What happens next is up to us. We can stand around and wait for things to change and just stay in place until that happens. Maybe it’ll take an hour, or a day, or a week, or a month or longer. We may remain for as long as we like. We may believe if we’re just patient, and wait, eventually the situation will change and we’ll be able to push through. That might happen, but how long it takes for that to come is undefined. In the meantime, our lives will continue on and if we do nothing but wait, the goals we desire will wait as well. Life goes on even if we stand still. There is no way to predict the future, or when our lives will change. Instead of standing around and waiting for an opening, we can set the goal aside and move onto something else. Nothing stays the same forever, and in time, we can return and try again. Our lives are important, and time is precious. By doing all we can to continue forward, no matter what is in the way, we will find great success. We can trust ourselves to choose the next best step, and move toward our dreams.

Nobody knows everything and there may come a time when we need someone else’s help or assistance to reach a specific goal. We may ask them for advice or guidance, and they may be happy to help. But we’re all busy and sometimes the help we need may not be available right away. We can be patient and wait for things to change, but while we wait, it isn’t necessary to stop our forward progression. We can continue moving ahead with something new, and step forward with confidence toward our next destination.

It takes courage and determination to step forward toward something new. Although we know what we want, we may be unsure about beginning the journey. Nobody knows what lies ahead or what the next turn will bring, and if we’re not confident, we may decide to wait. Simply standing and waiting will do nothing to change our situation. If we’re unsure, we can look into all the possibilities, and make a solid plan. Once we’ve decided how we’ll proceed, we can begin. It doesn’t matter what complications may come, we will handle them. There isn’t anything we can’t do and nothing is strong enough to keep us from success.

Today if you’ve been waiting for something to change so you can move forward, remember how strong and capable you are. If the road ahead isn’t available right now, move onto something else. Nothing is permanent, and when things change you’ll be able to start again and reach success. You have everything you need to do anything you desire. Trust yourself and be wise. Everything is there for you and you will make your dreams come true.
