In Between

6 Aug

Change is constant and is the only thing we can really count on. Some changes come as expected and we navigate through them easily, but life is unpredictable. We may face a time when something unexpected turns everything upside down and we are stopped in our tracks. It may take time to figure out what’s happened, and what to do next. As we stand still trying to process the new landscape and decide on our next steps, we may feel disoriented and unsure. When the road ahead is something we’ve planned for, the distance in between where we are and where we’re headed is clear and easy to see. But if our future is suddenly in doubt and we can’t yet see the way forward, we may feel momentarily paralyzed and unable to move. The space between where we are and where we want to go may be dark, and unclear. We never know what will come and there is no way to see what lies ahead. Things may go wrong, we may get turned around, the road we’re on may disappear, or a thousand other developments we can’t foresee. No matter what happens, the answers we need will be there for us. We don’t need to panic, or worry we won’t succeed. We can take one step at a time, solve each problem as it arises, and find the way forward. Detours are not the end of the journey. They may delay us and make the road ahead more complex, but they cannot keep us from our goals. Life is full of challenges but we are strong enough and wise enough to manage whatever comes. Nothing can hold us in place indefinitely and we have everything we need to succeed. Surprises will come, trials may beset us, and we might have to stop and regroup before we proceed.  But we are intelligent and wise, and will find the way forward.

The world is huge and we are never restricted to one place forever. We can always venture forth toward something new. Although our routines are familiar and comfortable, when we’re ready for a something different, we can stretch forth and move onto a new location or situation. While we’re in the process of moving from what we know to what we want, there may times of uncertainty and doubt. It’s not easy to let go of the familiar, and reach for something more. But we know what we want, and are perfectly capable of managing anything that’s required to get us there. Every destination is possible, and with determination and faith, we can do anything.

It’s easy to navigate through common territory we know well. We feel at ease when the road is familiar and we’re used to the scenery. We barely need to look where we’re going and can continue forward without much thought. But there are endless opportunities possible, and when we’re ready, we can step beyond the pavement, and chart a new course. Every single dream is possible if we’re willing to do what is needed to make it ours. We have all the courage and wisdom we need to do anything.

Today if you want to move onto something new but aren’t sure you will succeed, trust yourself. You are stronger and wiser than you imagine. Be confident and step toward the dreams you desire. Everything is possible. Believe in yourself and move ahead. You are amazing and capable, and nothing can keep you from success.

Taking It Easy

24 Jul

Our lives are filled with opportunity and endless chances to do anything we want. The world is a big place, and there are unlimited things we can do, and countless places to go. We can plan our lives in ways that enable us to accomplish all our dreams, and do everything we desire. Every dream is possible but it takes courage to step away from what we know and try something new. If we want to, we can take it easy, and just continue in our routine, thinking about what we’d like to do, but never taking the chance to make it happen. Routines are safe. We can do the same things every day and pretty much know what to expect and how things will go. Mastering what is common comes easily, and takes little effort. We can go through our lives repeating the same patterns every day, and although we may be successful in accomplishing some things, it’s unlikely we’ll achieve what we dream about. Our lives are important and we can design them any way we like. We can live in predictable, mediocre ways and become complacent, or we can decide what we want the most, and then do what is needed to make it ours. They say when we die, we don’t regret the things we’ve done, but the things we never tried. We are strong, intelligent, and capable, and can achieve anything we desire. By trusting ourselves and stepping forward with confidence, determined to succeed, we can do anything. Nothing is too far or too difficult for us to manage. Every dream is possible, and we can make them ours. The whole world is there, waiting for us. We need only decide what we want, and then go get it.

It’s easy to feel comfortable when we know where we are, and the road ahead is familiar. We can relax and just take things as they come. Our lives belong to us, but if we don’t control them, others will. We can follow along, do as requested, agree with everyone else’s ideas, and just coast through. If we do, we’ll probably be just fine, but we will never reach our personal goals. It’s impossible to direct our own lives if we’re following someone else. We are the only ones who know what our dreams are and where we want to go. We can take control, and move toward every destination we desire, and succeed. Nothing is off limits, and we can have the lives we want the most.

If we’re trying to accomplish a difficult goal, we may get support from those around us, or they may tell us it’s too hard and we should quit. Many people prefer conformity. They like it when everyone is doing the same things and may be uncomfortable when others try to move forward. They are certainly entitled to their opinions, but they have no influence over our choices. We don’t need agreement to do anything we desire. Our lives are ours, and every goal is possible. We can make our dreams come true, and reach every destination.

Today if you’ve been taking it easy and just going with the flow, think about what you really want. Decide where you want to go, and begin forward. You already have everything you need to do anything you want. Create the life you desire most, and you’ll find great satisfaction and happiness. Every dream is possible, and you will make them yours.

Doing the Work

21 Jul

It would be so great if the things we wanted were easily available and we could just reach out and get them. We could climb every mountain, visit any destination, and achieve anything we desired. Yeah, that would be great, but unfortunately that’s not how life works. While some things may come easily, often what we want most will require careful planning, and lots of work. We can try to find a shortcut and sometimes that might be possible, but most of the time, we’ll have to forge ahead step by step until we get to the destination. Nobody gets a free pass, and we probably won’t win the lottery. Doing the work is the only sure way to pave the road ahead. We can do anything and go anywhere we want, and success is always possible, but we must be willing to do what is required to reach it. There are no magic genies, fairy godmothers, or magical stars. Every destination is possible but it’s up to us to get there. After we decide what we want, we can begin doing everything necessary to make it ours. It doesn’t matter how much work it will take, we can accomplish it. It doesn’t matter how hard it is, we can figure it out. Nothing is too big or too far away. We are stronger, smarter, and more powerful than we think we are. Every single goal is possible and each dream can become reality. We need only do the work to get there. There will probably be complications, problems may crop up, and we might have to overcome serious hurdles. Few roads are paved, but if we want to be successful, we can manage whatever lies ahead. Our lives are ours to design, and nothing is out of reach. By trusting ourselves, focusing on the goal, and doing the work, we will reach every destination we desire.

People are creative and there are all kinds of ideas about how to live our lives and become successful. There are get rich quick schemes that sound promising, but rarely work. We might get constant suggestions for ways to cut corners, and slip around details. We can do anything we like, but nothing will take us to success more effectively than good planning and consistent work. We know what we want, and have everything we need to achieve it. We can step forward with confidence, and be sure we will prevail.

We may face a time when the goal we’re working toward turns out to be much harder to reach than we thought at the beginning, and the effort it will take to achieve it is more than we can manage. If we cannot continue forward right now, we can set the goal aside until our situation changes and we have the resources we need to move ahead. Life is long, and there will be time to go back and capture whatever we desire. Success is always possible. We can have the lives we dream about, and achieve greatness.

Today if there’s something you want to gain, but haven’t yet stepped forward to make it yours, decide what you want the most. You are intelligent and capable, and nothing is out of reach. Every destination is waiting for you. Do what is necessary to achieve the goals you desire most. There is great success just ahead, and you will reach it.

A Million Reasons

14 Jul

Life is filled with opportunities and we can achieve any goal we desire. There are unlimited things to accomplish and we can do anything and go anywhere. We’re in complete control of our lives and can direct them toward any destination we desire. Everything is possible, and nothing is too far, or too difficult for us to manage. We can have the lives we dream of if we’re willing to do what is required to get there. Some goals are easy to reach and we don’t have to do much to make them ours. Others take more time and planning, and may require intense concentration. We may face difficult odds of success, and there may be many complications and problems to work out to get there. Sometimes when we have something in mind, after looking at how hard it is to achieve, we may talk ourselves out of trying. There are a million reasons not to move forward and reach for something more, and we can embrace them all. Maybe it’ll be harder than we thought it would be, maybe it will require more attention than we want to give, maybe we aren’t sure we can do it, or endless other excuses. Stepping into the unknown can be intimidating, and if we want to, we don’t have to change anything, and can stay exactly where we are, doing the same things for as long as we like. Nothing will change unless we change it. Despite all the reasons not to do something new and challenging, there really is only one reason to go for it – because we want to. If we want to reach beyond where we are, we can. If we want to go someplace new, we can. Our lives belong to us. We can do anything and nothing is out of reach. The whole world is there for us. There are endless possibilities. All our dreams are waiting, and we can make them ours.

If we’ve been doing the same things for a while, we may not even think about them as we go through the motions. If what we’re doing is moving us forward, closer to the goals we desire, we can continue. However, if they are simply holding us in place, we may get stuck where we are, even if it’s not where we want to be. When we’re ready, we can look at all the options available and begin moving toward what we want the most. Every goal is there for us, and we will succeed.

It takes courage to reach beyond where we are. We’ll have to step onto uncharted territory, and be willing to face new experiences and challenges. We may be unsure at first, but each step we take moves us forward a little more, and gives us greater confidence. As we move ahead, the road will become familiar, and with determination we’ll reach the goal. We are the only ones who can hold us back from what we want the most. There is enough courage and wisdom inside us already to take us to success. We can trust ourselves, and move forward with clarity and certainty that we will reach the destination. We can do anything we desire, and every dream is possible.

Today if there is something you want to do, but aren’t sure you can manage it, take a step forward. You are stronger and wiser than you imagine, and can do anything you desire. Be confident and trust yourself. Nothing can keep you from success, and all your dreams are possible.

Maybe Today

7 Jul

We always know what we want and where we want to go. When everything is in our control, we can step ahead and reach any destination with confidence. But we aren’t alone in the world, and sometimes we may get stuck because of someone else’s choices, or because the timing isn’t there for us. One of the hardest experiences we have may be when we must wait for something we really want. We have no way of reading the future, and can’t know what will happen. We want things to fall into place so we can reach success. If it’s all up to us, we can reach any goal. However, there may be times when we’ve done all we can, but still we aren’t there, and must wait. Waiting is hard and if it continues for a long time, can be maddening. It’s difficult to be patient and stand still when all we can think about is moving ahead. We have complete control over our own decisions and the things we do, but that’s where the control ends. We may be able to force some situations, but often we are powerless over what’s happening. Everyone makes their own decisions and decides on their own time frames. We can’t make them move more quickly, pay attention to what we want, or make our needs a priority. We know where we want to go, but getting there isn’t always easy. We can always give our input to others involved, and try to press what’s important to us, but in the end, we may still have to wait. We can give in to frustration and anger, or we can use the time to plan for when things change. Nothing stays the same forever, and eventually, we’ll be able to advance. Every success will always be there for us, and in time, however long that takes, we’ll reach it.

If we’ve been waiting for a long time for a specific door to open, those around us may encourage us to give up. They may tell us it’s foolish to keep waiting and we should just change direction and focus on something else. There will always be many opportunities available and we can alter our course at any time. We are the only ones who know what we really want, and if the goal is still important to us, we can hang onto it until things change. If we’ve moved on, we can let it go, and focus on something new.

Time waits for no one, and moves forward whether we’re moving with it or standing still. Waiting for something to happen so we can achieve a goal doesn’t mean we have to put our whole lives in a holding pattern. While we wait, we can focus on other destinations and continue moving forward. There are unlimited things we can accomplish, and nothing can hold us in place. We are talented and intelligent, and will find success. The whole world is there for us, and with clarity and certainty, we can reach any destination.

Today if you’ve been waiting for something you really want, and it’s still out of reach, remember how capable and wise you are. Focus on the goals that are available to you today, and move forward with confidence. Nothing can keep you from success. You are amazing and strong, and will find the way to every destination you desire.
