Freeze Frame

18 Feb

Everyone experiences many successes and things that go well. When our plans work out and the road ahead is clear and open, we feel happy and content, and sure we’ll arrive at the destinations we’ve chosen. But not every experience is good, and we’ll all suffer through disappointment and failure from time to time. Nobody is perfect and there is no way to get everything right every time. If we’ve gone through a big defeat that has impacted us greatly, we may feel the pain of loss for a long time. If we really missed the mark and the setback is intense, we might believe we’re doomed to fail going forward. We may struggle with self confidence and wonder if we’ll ever do anything well again. Life is continual and change is constant. Although our memories may hold everything frozen in time, nothing is permanent. Our past experiences teach us important lessons, and if we’ve fallen down, those lessons may be painful and difficult. It may be hard to believe we’ll ever be successful again, but the past is behind us and cannot predict the future. We aren’t forever cursed with failure just because of a bad experience. By learning all we can from what’s already happened, we can take great knowledge forward to help us moving ahead. We learn as we go, and each experience has something of value. We are wiser than we think we are, and can do amazing things. There is greatness in us all, and with patience and determination, every goal is possible.

If we’re out walking, and slip and fall, we don’t stay down and bemoan our situation. We get back up, brush ourselves off and continue on. If we go through a terrible mistake, and everything falls apart, we might stumble and fall. But we don’t have to stay down. We can look at everything that’s happened objectively, think about how we want to proceed, and then stand back up and start forward. There are unlimited destinations before us, and we have what we need to find the way ahead and reach success.

Everyone goes through hard times. We might face a time when no matter what we do, nothing works out. Every decision seems doomed to failure, and we may feel lost and confused. When we’re unsure about how to proceed, we can stop and stand still for a time, look at all the options possible, and then choose our next steps. The road may get twisted around and we might get tangled up, but we are intelligent and will find all the answers we need to move toward success.

Today if you’re unsure and doubting yourself, remember all the times you’ve already overcome difficulty and succeeded. You are strong and powerful, and have everything you need to do anything you desire. Decide what you want the most, and step forward with confidence. Every success is already there, waiting for you. Move forward and make it yours.
