Knee Deep

25 Feb

Life is filled with opportunities, but few of them come without challenges attached. When we want to accomplish something, generally there will be something pushing us back or standing in the way that we’ll have to circumvent. If there are a lot of problems and complications, it can feel like we’re walking knee deep in mud and making little progress. It’s hard to keep pushing forward when it seems everything is working against us, but no matter how complex the situation becomes, despite all the hiccups and tangles, there will be a way ahead. If we keep our eyes focused on the goal, and hold fast to our determination, we can find the answers we need to continue on. But there are limits to everything, including our energy and patience. If we’ve been pressing forward for a long time and have made only small advancements, we may feel like it’s hopeless, and there is no way to win. We can change anything at any time, and if we’ve had enough and no longer want the goal we can stop and let it go. However, timing is everything and if we really want to get there, we can set everything aside for a time, work on something else, and revisit it once things change. Life is full of changes and the road that was blocked and unclear earlier may be wide open in the future. Setting something down for a time isn’t giving up. We can go back and check in and if the situation has improved, we can begin again. There will be few times when what we want will come easily. We are intelligent and can decide how to manage what happens next. Every destination is possible, and we already have everything we need to reach success.

Everyone has their own opinions and ideas. Those around us may see us struggling to succeed and offer their personal suggestions. They may have insight we haven’t considered, and may be very helpful. Or they might think what we’re doing is too hard and we’ll never succeed, and advise us to give up and move on. If we aren’t convinced we can prevail, their negative comments may be enough for us to walk away and forget about the goal. We’re in control of our lives and can do anything we like at any time, but we are the only ones who will give us what we want the most. There is no genie or fairy godmother waiting in the wings to provide our dreams for us. If we really want to succeed, we have what is needed to continue on and reach the prize.

Mediocrity is easy to achieve. We can sit back and just let life take us where it will. We can follow along, keep our heads down, and wait to see what happens. If we don’t control where we’re going, we’ll end up somewhere but it may not be where we want to go. Our dreams are possible and they are waiting for us. When we’re ready, we can decide what we want to do and then step forward, clear and sure of success. We are stronger, wiser and more powerful than we think we are, and absolutely nothing is out of reach.

Today if you’ve been trying hard to reach a goal, but the way forward is difficult and problematic, decide how you want to proceed. If nothing is working, step away for a while until the situation changes. The road will eventually open and you will find the way forward. You are amazing and smart, and already possess everything you need to win. It’s all there for you. Be confident and trust yourself. Every success is possible and they will be yours.
