So Many Butterflies

3 May

Our lives are busy and filled with many things we need to address – tasks, appointments, issues, complications and thousands of distractions. We all have things we want to accomplish and goals we want to achieve. If we have a lot of responsibilities we must attend to, we may need to carefully plan our time to ensure we accomplish what we most want to do. We may have clear intentions of doing one thing or another, but there are endless distractions that may pull us off track. Butterflies are lovely. When they fly near us we may be captivated by their beauty and grace, and for a moment, forget everything else. As we go through our lives, the unlimited distractions around us may be like butterflies coming near. We may push forward, but then see something interesting we didn’t notice before and go check it out. Or we hear something new that intrigues us, or remember something we meant to get done, or see an item that needs to be put away, or a million other things. There will always be dozens of ways to let go of our focus, look at something else and step away from what we want the most. We can do anything we like but we can’t do everything at the same time and expect to move forward. If we want to succeed, we must actually reach the goal. Playing around here and there, looking at this and that, or standing still will never move us forward. There are unlimited interesting things that may capture our attention and if we let them, they may hold us in place indefinitely. We know what we want and already possess everything we need to obtain it. By focusing clearly on the road ahead, and keeping our eyes focused on the goal, we will reach every success. There is greatness in us all, and with persistence and determination, nothing is out of reach.

Everyone has their own ideas about what we should do and how things should go. When we’re working toward a goal, someone may think they have a better plan than the one we’re using and offer their suggestion. We can take any advice we like, but there are a lot of people around us and each one may have a different idea. Constantly changing the way we proceed may keep us from moving forward. By carefully reviewing all the options possible, and trusting ourselves to make the best choice for proceeding ahead, we can step forward with confidence and reach success.

If we want to take a road trip, every map will have many possible options for reaching the destination. If we choose one route and stick to it we’ll get there in less time and with fewer complications than if we change the way forward again and again because another road looks better or more interesting than the one we’re on. By making a plan and then sticking to it we have the best chance of success. We are intelligent and capable, and with clarity and wisdom, can move ahead and reach every destination.

Today if you’re struggling to reach a goal, decide what you want the most and focus on the way forward. Keep your eyes on the road ahead and nothing can keep you from success. You are amazing and powerful, and nothing is too difficult for you to accomplish. Trust yourself and step forward with confidence. Every success is there waiting, and you will make them yours.
