Cart First

13 Apr

Nature is amazing and orderly. Everything happens at the right time. Fall never comes just before summer, harvests don’t come in winter, and the sun doesn’t rise at night. There is timeliness and order to everything. We can count on this to continue and often predict what will come next. Our lives are ours to design, and since we have free will, can do anything we like. There is no set schedule for when things must happen, and timing doesn’t count for a lot of things. But there are some that may bring us hardship if we do them out of order. If we buy a car before we have the money to make the payments, we will struggle. If we take a job we’re unprepared for we may go down in flames. If we attempt an advanced course before taking the pre-requisites, we may fail. It’s like the old saying about putting the cart before the horse. If the horse isn’t in the front, it can’t pull the cart, and so we’re stuck. There are all kinds of ways to succeed at what we want to accomplish, and if we skip the preparation, or try to jump ahead, we might get there, but we won’t have all the tools we could have acquired along the way. We are intelligent and can see what is needed to reach success. Doing things in order will help pave the road ahead. Every goal is possible, and we can achieve anything we desire if we’re mindful and focus on what is required to win. We have all the wisdom we need to reach any destination.

Life is full of complications and unforeseen developments, and will bring us lots of challenges. Even if we make every single decision perfectly, there will still be tangles and trouble from time to time. There are lots of forces and people we may be unaware of who may be doing things that make our journey more difficult. We can’t control what life will bring us but we can control what we do. By taking our time and clearly looking at all the options possible before making a decision, we can move forward more easily and reach success.

Everyone wants to get to their goals with as little hassle as possible. We all want to lose ten pounds yesterday, or get that promotion we think we deserve immediately. Nothing worth having comes without effort. Wishing and hoping and dreaming of how things could be is just a distraction. Once we decide what we want, we can determine what is needed to make it ours, and then step forward to accomplish it. We are strong and capable, and nothing is out of reach. Every dream is possible, and we will make them ours.

Today think about putting things in order. Decide what you want and make a plan to achieve it. You are incredibly capable and there isn’t anything you can’t do. Stand strong and step forward with wisdom and focus. There is great success ahead just waiting for you. Be confident. You will win.
