Meant To Be

15 Sep

Everyone has their own ideas about life and what we should do. We’re all unique and can make any decisions we like. No matter where we are or what we’re doing, there is always another option possible, and we can choose our next steps whenever we’re ready. Sometimes things go wrong, what we want eludes us, our plans don’t work out and we get turned around. Those who care about us may tell us not to worry. They may say, “If it’s meant to be, it’ll work out.” People frequently say things like this as a way of easing pain or helping someone feel better. However, if things are “meant to be” outside of our control, it would mean that our lives have been programmed and there is no way to choose anything different. We are fated to experience whatever has been planned for us. Of course, that is complete nonsense. We all have free will and can do whatever we choose. There is no pre-destination in play and nothing is meant to be. Life is full of twists and turns, and we may get tangled up going in the wrong direction from time to time, but we are perfectly capable or redirecting our course and starting again. If what we want isn’t available right now, we can move onto something else. Change is constant and we may have the chance to reach the goal later. We’re in complete control of our lives. We can trust ourselves to find the way forward toward anything we desire, and be confident of success.

While most things are possible, they won’t all be possible today. We may have to wait until our situation changes, we’re in a new place, or circumstances have evolved in a way that allows us to succeed. If our goal involves other people, is dependent upon their alignment, and they don’t agree, we may not be able to accomplish the goal. Everyone has the right to choose anything they desire, and if they don’t want to go along, we may have to change our plans. There are unlimited things we can do and endless places to go. We can move in a new direction at any time, and continue on to something else.

It’s hard to be patient when we want something badly. If no matter what we do we can’t move forward, we can step back and think about how we want to proceed. We can look at all the options possible and decide on our next steps. Life is long and setting something aside for now doesn’t mean we’re giving up. Things change every day, and we can wait until the road clears, and try again. We are highly capable and intelligent, and will find our way forward.

Today if the goal you desire is out of reach, look at everything objectively and determine if it’s viable at this time. If not, move onto something else. There are unlimited options available and you have everything you need to prevail. Trust yourself, and step forward with clarity. You are really amazing have so much to offer. We’re all blessed because you are here. Step forward toward success, and make your dreams reality.

Purpose

7 Sep

There are endless things we can do in life, unlimited places to visit, and innumerable experiences to be had. Every destination awaits, but if we want to accomplish something, we must be willing to do what is needed to make it ours and purposely step forward determined to obtain it. The world is huge and nothing is too difficult if we want it badly enough. Our lives are ours to design, and whatever we want is possible, but our dreams won’t just appear because we want them, or feel we deserve them. Coasting along, doing what everyone else thinks we should do, or riding in the back seat will never take us where we really want to go. Just taking things as they come and following our noses around from one place to the next will not get us what we want the most. Nobody knows us better than we know ourselves, and when we’re ready, we can reach any goal we desire. Our futures are ours to choose. Every road is there for us and nothing is out of reach. By believing in our ability to succeed, and then stepping forward with confidence, we can find success. There is great satisfaction and happiness in living our lives exactly as we desire. We are unique and powerful, and with determination and focus, can do anything. The lives we want the most are possible, and we can make choices that take us closer to them. Success is there for us, and we will prevail.

Some roads are hard and difficult. It may take a long journey to reach a goal we desire. If there have been many complications, twists and turns, and moving ahead has been arduous, we may think we can’t do it. We may believe it’s just too hard and there is no way we’ll ever succeed. Nobody wants to suffer, and when trials come we can always throw our hands up and surrender. We can give up and walk away, but we cannot succeed by quitting. If we’re determined, nothing is powerful enough to hold us down indefinitely. Every goal is reachable even when it’s dark and hard to see. We can endure what we must and reach success.

Running 100 miles seems impossible. Looking at the entire journey from the beginning may overwhelm us, and we may shrink back and hesitate to begin. We can’t imagine how we’ll ever run the entire distance, but we can run one mile today. Tomorrow we can run another, and before we realize it, we will have completed the journey. We don’t have to do everything all at once. We can take our time, take one step and then the next, and with persistence and perseverance, we will succeed.

Today decide what you want the most, and take the first step forward. Every goal is possible and nothing is too difficult for you to accomplish. Stay focused and each day move closer to the goal. You are stronger and more powerful than you realize, and can accomplish anything you desire. Keep your eyes focused on the road ahead and move with purpose. Every dream is waiting, and you will make them yours.

Easy Peasy

13 Aug

Everyone is different and we all have our own perspectives and ideas. Much of what we believe and how we act is a reflection of all the experiences we’ve had so far. If we’ve suffered through several serious losses, we may be hesitant about the future. If we’ve been betrayed, we may be cautious about building close relationships. Everything we do has a result and the struggles of the past may influence what we do next. Some people have a very laid back attitude and can take most things in stride. If something goes wrong, they just navigate through it. Others feel things differently and what may seem easy to someone else, may be very difficult for them to endure. We’re all unique and nobody gets all the same experiences. The choices we’ve made so far have brought us to where we are now, but we don’t have to stay here. The goals we want to achieve are always possible, but our understanding of them, and our ability to do what is necessary to achieve them may be impacted by what we’ve already been through. Life is unpredictable and we never know what lies ahead. If we’ve been hurt, or suffered extreme loss, we may not trust ourselves or anything else. We must believe success is possible before we can reach it. It doesn’t matter what’s happened in the past, or what’s gone wrong. The past can never predict the future. Each day is a new beginning – a clean slate to start again. We have all the courage and wisdom we need to move forward, and reach any destination we desire. We are strong, and we are powerful. Every success is there, waiting. With confidence and clarity, we can step forward and claim it.

When we’re facing a difficult challenge, we may reach out for help and advice. Some people may be very helpful, but not everyone will offer good suggestions. Someone may disagree with the choices we want to make, and may discourage us from proceeding. While it’s nice to get agreement, we don’t need it to do anything we desire. Even if the road ahead is hard, and there will be many complications and challenges, we can make the journey and reach success. Nothing can keep us from anything we want to do.

Life is easier when we go along with everyone else. Traveling the paved, common roads will rarely give us heartburn or difficulty. But following others can only take us where they are going and will never lead us to the destinations we most desire. We can always take the easy way out, but there is greatness in us, and incredible success awaits. We can trust our own intuition and push our limits until we reach the goal. Everything is possible, and we will prevail.

Today if there’s something you want to do but feel unsure, remember how strong and capable you are. Nothing is powerful enough to hold you in place indefinitely. You have all the wisdom and courage you need to do anything you desire. Step forward with confidence and trust yourself. Every blessing is possible, and you will succeed.

Olympic Gold

9 Aug

Excellence is powerful. When we see someone do something incredibly well, we may be astounded and seriously impressed, and rightly so. Watching someone do something amazing like achieve an Olympic gold medal is inspirational and motivating. Mediocrity is simple to achieve. We can coast by doing the minimum required to get things done and work marginally around the edges to get through. We can have small, uninspiring lives filled with monotony and routine, or we can live them fully and reach further. We are capable of achieving anything and when we apply ourselves and push beyond what is customary to what is exceptional, we can reach amazing success and do things we only imagined possible. All our dreams, even the very difficult and complex ones, are possible, but before we can accomplish anything, we must believe in ourselves. If we doubt we’ll be able to reach the goal, chances are we won’t. But if we’re determined to get there, no matter how complicated or difficult the road gets, nothing can keep us from success. There is greatness in all of us but it’s up to us to recognize and apply it. We are the only ones who can take us to the gold. Every dream we desire is possible, and if we’re wiling to do what is necessary to reach them, we will succeed. The lives we want the most are there for us and we can reach any destination. By stepping forward and staying the course, we can go anywhere and do anything. It’s all there for us. We just need to decide.

There are endless things we can accomplish, and everyone dreams about the things they want the most. Maybe we want to earn more money, go on vacation, get a degree, or a million other things. We can think about what we want for as long as we like, but until we do something to get it, nothing will change. If we want something different, we have to do something different. Repeating the same patterns and behaviors will guarantee we stay exactly where we are. The world is huge and there are unlimited things we can accomplish and places we can go. Instead of standing still and watching it go by, we can step up and move toward the goals we most desire and make them ours.

Everyone is different and we never have to conform to anyone else’s ideas about how we should live or what we should do. We define our own personal success, not the world or those around us. We can choose the roads that will take us where we most want to go, and design our lives any way we choose. Every option is open and when we’re ready we can begin any journey we desire. Our happiness is our responsibility and by being true to who we are and what we really want, we can find great satisfaction and success.

Today if you’ve been skirting the edges of your dreams and waiting for something to change, decide what you want the most. Your life belongs to you alone, and you can do anything you desire. There is greatness and excellence in you, and every goal is possible. Take control and start your journey forward. You can have the life you desire and make your dreams reality. It’s all there for you. Step forward and claim it.

Trusting It

21 Jul

No matter where we are or what we’re doing, chances are there’s something we’re working toward or trying to accomplish. Maybe we want to change direction in our career, or find someone to share our time with, or find a way to make more money or a thousand other things. Nobody can read the future and there is no way to know how anything will eventually roll out. Most things are out of our control and the best we can do is choose options that will most likely bring us the results we’re seeking. The world is filled with billions of people and they’re all making decisions, some of which may impact us negatively. We may be moving along easily, everything may be going according to plan, and then bam, without warning something changes and our plans go up in smoke. Although this is always a possibility, if we’ve planned effectively and done everything we can to protect the way forward, we will generally be able to find our way around any snags that come up. We are intelligent and capable and can figure out what needs to be done to accomplish the goals we desire, and then trust the process to work. We may face complications and there might be a problem that creeps in from time to time, but we can find the answers we need and continue on. Learning to trust isn’t always easy, especially if we’ve suffered a calamity in the past, and we’ve all suffered calamities in the past. When things go unexpectedly wrong and knock us down it leaves a mark and we may struggle to believe things will go well in the future. But every goal is possible and nothing can keep us from success. We have everything we need to accomplish anything we desire. By doing what’s necessary to find the best options possible, we can proceed with confidence that no matter what happens things will work out. The world isn’t going to end because one thing goes wrong or we hit a bump in the road. The destination will still be there for us, and we will reach it.

Some things are easier to accomplish than others. They say if you’re going to dream, you should dream big. Common goals that have paved roads leading to them are simple to overcome, but if we want something more, we have all the intelligence and wisdom needed to find a way to accomplish it. Our most treasured dreams, the things we think about and wish for, are possible if we’re willing to do what is required to make them ours. We can shoot for the moon, and gain the sun and stars as well. Everything is there for us and we can have the lives we desire most.

Self doubt can be crippling if we let it control our decisions. Nobody is perfect and we all make mistakes, but no matter how far we fall, there will always be a way back up. We know what we want and can trust ourselves to get it. Every single destination is achievable and with focus and determination, nothing can keep us from what we want. We are stronger and more powerful than we think we are, and can do anything. By stepping forward with clarity and confidence, sure of success, we will conquer every dream and reach every goal. Our lives are ours to design. Everything is possible, and nothing can keep us from success.

Today if you want to do something but are thinking about when things went wrong in the past, trust yourself. The past never determines your future. Every single dream is there for you and you have everything you need to get the life you want. Stand strong and move forward. You are amazing and capable, and nothing, absolutely nothing is too hard or too far away for you to reach. Your dreams are waiting. Step forward and claim them.
