Nothing Left

9 Mar

Our lives are often busy, and the checklist of things we need to get done may be long and complicated. There is a never ending supply of issues that may arise and in the midst of trying to accomplish our tasks, something may go awry that throws everything off course. We share the world with billions of other people who are all making decisions and doing things that may affect our lives and tangle the way forward. If we’ve been working hard for a long time, dealing with problems and stress, we may reach a point where we’re exhausted and can no longer focus. Nobody can keep going at full speed indefinitely. We all have limits and no matter how much energy we had at the beginning, we may use it all up and reach a point where we have nothing left. We can’t think, we can’t plan, we can hardly move. We can work on details all day every day and still never reach the end. Working endlessly and pushing ourselves to exhaustion will never help us move ahead. Instead of constantly trying to do more and pressing forward with ever increasing speed, we can look at the situation objectively and make a plan to accomplish whatever is pending in ways that allow us to succeed without breaking the bank. Success is always there, and in most cases, there is no time limit to reach it except what we put on ourselves. Everyone wants to quickly achieve the goals they desire, but if we move ahead using our time wisely, and allow for periods of rest and contemplation, the road ahead will be easier to manage. Rome wasn’t built in a day and we don’t have to do everything right now. We know what we want, and already have everything we need to achieve it. By being thoughtful and moving forward with wisdom, we can reach every goal and destination. Nothing is too far away, and by carefully planning the road ahead, we will succeed.

Some people like to challenge others to make them prove their worth. They may ask us to show them what we can do, and if we want to impress them, we might try to break all speed records for accomplishing what they ask for. Rushing ahead and trying to get there first may work for us but going fast just to get to the goal may cause us to miss important clues and cues along the way. It does no good to reach a destination fast if we skip over important details we’ll need when we get there. We are smart enough to find the best way forward, and with patience and clarity, can reach every goal.

There may be times when due to circumstances beyond our control, or unforeseen complications, we need to do more than normal and work harder than we’re used to. When we begin to feel fatigued and overwhelmed, we can stop for a moment and take a break to rest and restore. Just a few minutes sitting alone peacefully and quietly can bring great refreshment and give us the energy we need to continue on. Life is complex but we are stronger and more capable than we imagine, and nothing is too difficult for us to manage.

Today if you’re in a complicated situation that is pushing you to your limits, stop and stand still. Taking time to recharge will enable you to continue forward with clarity and focus. You are amazing and powerful and can do incredible things. Trust yourself and be confident. There isn’t anything you can’t do and every success is there for you. There is greatness in you, and you will prevail.
