No Tolerance

3 Jun

Life is complicated and we’re often busy attending to meetings, chores, appointments, details and unexpected developments. We never know what will happen next, and sometimes things get in the way and disrupt our plans. We may be delayed due to circumstances out of our control, or have to change direction because of some unplanned detour. If we’re late and others are waiting, they may be annoyed and express that once we arrive. Some people have no tolerance for disruptions in their schedules or routine. They may fuss and fume when things go wrong, or their schedules have to change. It’s fine to have high expectations, but this is the real world, and we can’t predict anything. Things will go wrong, stuff will get in the way, and our plans may go up in smoke. Accepting that and learning to be flexible will help us find alternatives when the road turns and everything gets switched around. If we’re on a tight schedule and something waylays us, we may get frustrated and concerned, but by being patient and looking at the situation calmly and openly, we will find the best way to continue ahead. Lots of things may go wrong, and the plans we made may get completely turned around, but we are intelligent and can figure out any complication. By looking at every option available, and carefully choosing the best path, we can reach the destinations we desire. Success doesn’t always come the first time out, but by thinking clearly and being persistent, we can overcome any detour and find our way.

We all want the roads ahead to be clear and paved. It’s great when we can go from point A to point B without any roadblocks or problems. That will happen sometimes and we’ll sail on through, but there are always things going on around us we may be unaware of. Someone may make a decision that completely upends our plans, or something may develop we have no control over that stops us in our tracks. The schedules we set may be confounded and we may need to find a new way to get to the goal. It doesn’t matter what happens or what doesn’t work. We are perfectly capable of figuring out any problem and finding the solutions we need to succeed.

Some things need a lot of pre-planning and preparation. We can never see the end of the road from the beginning and there is no way to predict what might happen. If we’re open to making a change and altering our direction, we will more easily be able to manage disruptions and issues that may arise. There isn’t any goal that is unreachable and if things get jumbled up, we can trust that we will find our way to the destination.

Today if the road ahead is blocked and you’re stuck, look at all the options possible and choose the best way forward. Being delayed does not mean you will fail. Success is still there for you and with patience and clarity, you will find your way to it. Be calm, be confident and wise. Nothing can keep you from anything you desire. It’s all there for you and you will reach it.
