Lost and Turned Around

26 Oct

There are endless roads we can travel and unlimited places to go. We can choose any destination we desire and go anywhere we like. We may feel confident of success when we take our first steps toward a new goal, but there is no way to know what we’ll face as we progress. Sometimes the journey is easy, and we reach the destination quickly and with few complications. But nobody gets a paved road every time, and we’ll likely face moments of confusion where we’re disoriented and not sure which way to go. It’s easy to find our way when we’re familiar with the road ahead, but striking out for something new may take us through foreign territory and we may get lost as we try to push through. When the scenery is new, and every path looks the same, we may get confused and turned around. It may take time and effort to figure out the best way forward, but we are capable and will find it. Getting lost doesn’t mean we can’t reach the destination. We are certainly intelligent and wise enough to discern where we are, and uncover how to proceed. If we take a wrong turn, we can correct our course. If we end up going the wrong direction, we can turn around and start again. Nothing is impossible and every goal is within our reach. We can trust ourselves that no matter how complicated the journey gets we’ll find all the answers we need to reach success. Life is full of twists and turns and we may face moments of doubt and uncertainty. When they come, we can step back and look at all the possibilities before us. The answers will always be there for us, and nothing can keep us from success.

If we’re involved with someone we care about and they have a lot of influence over us, it’s possible they may steer us in directions we haven’t chosen for ourselves. We may follow any advice we’re given and go where we’re directed, but nobody knows us better than we know ourselves. Following someone else’s plan will never take us where we want to go. We can chart our own course and make our own decisions, confident we will reach every destination.

Starting out toward something new takes courage. If we’re afraid of what might happen and unsure we can succeed, we may delay taking the first step forward. There is no way to know how things will go, and we might face some serious complications, and get lost along the way. One thing is certain – if we stand still in fear, we’ll go nowhere and never achieve our dreams. We deserve the lives we desire most, and have all the courage and wisdom we need to make them ours. By trusting ourselves and stepping forward with confidence, we can make all our dreams come true.

Today if you’ve gotten turned around and are unsure how to proceed, stop and look at everything objectively. The road ahead is there for you and you will find the way forward. Every dream is waiting and with focus and determination you will make them yours. Nothing can keep you from success. You are amazing and capable, and will prevail.

Doomed

16 Sep

Life is filled with challenges and opportunities to learn through many different trials and difficulties. Nobody lives in nirvana, and we’ll all have times when we must face difficult situations that try us and push us to our limits. Many times, we’ll navigate them well and everything will resolve in ways that help us move forward. But we aren’t perfect, and we may get tangled up and make decisions that don’t work out for us, or take us down the wrong road. Mistakes are normal. We can’t know everything and there will be times when we’ll stumble and fall. Failure teaches us what doesn’t work, and helps us understand how to change direction and find the answers needed to reach success. Making a big mistake doesn’t mean we’re doomed to persistent and unmitigated failure moving forward. We aren’t stained for life and we don’t carry every mistake with us moving ahead. If we’ve made a bad choice, we can simply turn around and choose again. Our past will never determine our future. Everyone fails at some point. It’s inevitable. If we fall down, we can get back up and start again. There are unlimited possibilities and endless chances for success. No matter where we’ve been or what’s happened, each new day brings the opportunity to move in a new direction and reach our goals. If we’re not happy where we are, we can move. We never have to stay in any situation we don’t want, and can redirect our focus toward the things we desire most. Our lives are ours to design. Nothing is powerful enough to keep us from the destinations we desire most. If we stumble, and the road is uncertain, we can do what is needed to steady the way forward. Every possibility is there for us and the options available are unlimited. We can be confident and sure as we step forward that we will prevail and reach success.

We build different kinds of relationships with others each day. Some connections are positive and help us move ahead. Others may pull on us and hold us in place. If we’re deeply engaged with someone who prevents us from moving ahead, we may get stuck and unable to move. We are always in control of everything we do, and can change anything we desire. If a connection isn’t working, we can step back, look at all the options available, and go in another direction. We can do anything, and every success is possible.

Each experience teaches us something new to carry forward with us. If we must suffer through a difficult time filled with duress and strife, we will gain strength and deeper understanding as we find our way through. If we’ve made a bad decision, we can learn everything possible as we navigate the issue and find resolution. Learning all we can from each situation will enable us to acquire tools to help us in the future. We are smart and capable, and nothing can keep us from our goals.

Today if you’ve fallen down and made a mistake that is holding you back, decide how you want to proceed and step forward with confidence. Every destination is still there for you, and nothing can hold you in place. Be wise and confident, and step forward toward your goals. All your dreams are possible, and you will make them yours.

Freedom

21 Aug

We’re all in control of our lives and can do anything we like. There are always endless options available and we can choose any road or destination we desire. We have all the intelligence and power we need to make excellent decisions, but we don’t live in a vacuum, and there are influences all around us. We can follow the rules that have proven to lead to success, or we can make up our own. We can obey laws or break them, choose wisely or make decisions based on greed, revenge or anything else. If we’re angry and spiteful, we may let our emotions determine how we’ll proceed. That may give us what we want right now, but lasting happiness may elude us. One thing is certain, no matter what we choose, there will be a consequence. What those consequences are isn’t always obvious, and if we step away from what we know is right in order to cheat or in some way pad the way forward, we may end up somewhere we never wanted to go. When we think of freedom, we might think it means we can do anything we want – and we can. But we are accountable for everything we do. Choices that hurt others and take us away from our personal values and ethical standards may give us immediate gratification, but may also tie us up and hold us in place. We can cheat and manipulate, and it might move us ahead quickly, but when the truth comes out, we may end up back at square one. Real freedom can only be achieved by doing what’s right, and choosing options that honor who we are. When we’re true to our personal standards, we’ll have a great sense of worth and satisfaction. We know what we want, and have everything we need to get it. By standing firm and honoring the person we most want to be, we’ll find lasting happiness and great success.

We’re all far more connected than we may realize. Everything we do leaves an impression or a mark. We impact the world simply because we’re here. If we’re kind and thoughtful, the road behind us will different than if we are mean and rude. Building connections instead of burning bridges will enable us to more freely move toward the goals we most desire. We have the power to create positive and fulfilling situations that pave the road ahead, and help us reach every destination we desire.

The world is a big place and we are often bombarded with messages about what we should do, and how we should live. Like a “get rich quick” scheme, we may be told if we just loosen our standards a little, and step away from what we know is right, we’ll be rewarded quickly and never have to look back. We can listen to any suggestions we like, but our lives are our responsibility. If we choose dishonesty, we may get tangled up in ways we never imagined. We have the power to live our lives well and effectively, and achieve all our goals in ways that embellish and enrich us.

Today if you’re tempted to do something you know isn’t right in an effort to jump ahead, remember who you are and what you really want. You are worth more than you can imagine, and your influence is valuable. Choose the best options possible, and step forward with clarity and confidence. Every destination you desire is already there for you. Be wise, and you’ll achieve great success and happiness.

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.
