You Do It

15 May

We face many challenges as we navigate through our lives. Some of them are easy, and we process through them pretty quickly. Others are more complicated and require time and effort to figure out how to manage them. Most of the time we move through whatever complications arise and continue on. But there may be times when what we’re facing is very difficult and we have no idea how we’re going to get through. If the problem is more than we believe we can handle, we may become overwhelmed and convinced there is no way we can possibly survive. If we’re desperate and devastated, we may push it off onto someone else and surrender. We’ll just let them take care of it and forget about the whole thing. Pushing our problems onto someone else will never teach us anything, and if the problem comes up again, as problems often do, it’ll be déjà vu all over again. Nobody wants to go through difficult times. But trouble is constant, and there is no way to completely avoid complications. If we’re facing something huge, that takes our breath away, we may have no idea how we’ll ever figure it out. But we are intelligent and completely capable of managing anything that comes. We can take a moment to see everything clearly, and then begin to unravel the problem one step at a time. We are stronger and wiser than we think we are and can do anything. By trusting in ourselves, and taking our time, we can conquer whatever we must. Every destination is there for us, and with clarity and patience, we will reach them.

When there’s a lot to accomplish it’s helpful to recruit assistance from those around us. If we can delegate the work, even large and difficult projects are accomplished. Having a staff to help is a great blessing but when we’re facing personal challenges, we may need to manage them alone. Nobody knows everything but we are intelligent, and will learn as we go. Our vision may be cloudy at the beginning and the road ahead may be rough, but we don’t have to do everything today. We can chart our course ahead one step at a time. Every problem has a solution, and we are certainly capable of finding every answer we need.

If we lack confidence in our ability to manage something, we may lean on those around us. We can always ask for advice and direction, and take any counsel we receive. If someone else has been through this before, and knows more than we do, we may be tempted to dump it on them and escape. But offering advice is not the same as taking over the issue. We own our own problems, and have everything we need to solve them. Every step forward opens up new information and shows us the way ahead. We will have great satisfaction as we continue on, and reach success.

Today if you’re facing a huge issue and have no idea how you’ll survive, trust yourself. You’ve already overcome many difficult obstacles, and you can manage this. Recognize how strong you are, and take a step forward. When you’re comfortable, take another step. Soon you’ll overcome the problem and reach the goal. You really are amazing and capable. Be confident. Every dream is there for you, and your will reach them.

Set Aside

5 May

Life is full of opportunities and endless choices. Every day we choose what we’ll do, where we’ll go and with whom we’ll associate. We can choose to work toward any goal we want and move closer to whatever destinations call us. There are unlimited things to accomplish and places to go, but sometimes, because of the situation, we may have to go somewhere we don’t want to go, or do something we would never choose. Perhaps we must do something because of our jobs, family pressures, or our financial situation. Life can be complicated and even if we know where we want to go and are ready to move forward, may have to set our personal goals aside while we address something else. As we take care of business, whatever that business may be, we may feel frustrated that we must put our own desires on hold. It’s hard to wait when we want to move ahead, and we may feel held down against our will. There will always be many roads to travel but few will be paved. If we must wait, or take a big detour in the opposite direction, it doesn’t mean we won’t be able to accomplish our own goals. We can still do everything we want to do, but we may not be able to do it today. As we take care of our responsibilities, and tend to whatever complications and delays before us, we can still hold onto our dreams and prepare to move toward them. Delays and detours don’t end our journey. Everything is still possible, and with patience and determination, we will move forward. We can have the lives we dream about and do everything we desire. Nothing is too far away or too difficult for us to overcome. We are powerful and strong, and can make our dreams reality.

When we have our plans prepared and are eager to move forward, we don’t want anything to get in the way. If something happens that stops us in our tracks and we suddenly have to wait, we may feel we’ll lose our momentum and the goal may slip through our fingers. We might believe if we don’t do it now, it’ll never happen. Nothing is written in stone, and if the goal is important to us, even if we have to wait, we can be confident we will accomplish it. We can overcome any complication or delay, and when things change, be ready to jump ahead and move toward success.

There are few times when we must accomplish something by a certain period of time or our opportunity is lost. Most often there is no defined calendar or time frame for success, and we aren’t restricted to any specific period to achieve something or lose our chance. If we have to wait, we can. If our first try doesn’t work, we can try again. Being flexible and willing to bend will help us move forward, and ensure our success. There isn’t anything we can’t accomplish if we’re willing to do what is needed to get there. Our lives are ours to design, and we can do anything we desire.

Today if you’re stuck and can’t move ahead because of situations beyond your control, don’t lose hope. Just because you can’t get to your goal right now doesn’t mean it’s lost forever. You are capable and smart, and will find your way forward. Every opportunity is waiting for you and when things change, you will prevail. All your dreams are possible, and with patience and persistence, you will make them yours.

Busy Busy

30 Apr

There are endless roads available to us that lead to unlimited destinations. We can go anywhere we want, and every option is possible. When we have our eyes focused on the way forward toward a goal we want to achieve, each step takes us closer to success. But life is full of distractions, problems, complications, and unexpected developments that may divert our attention away from what we want the most. There are lots of shiny things to capture us, people coming and going who may pull us in different directions, and countless details to figure out that may hold us in place. If we engage in all the activity around us, we may be very busy, but that doesn’t necessarily mean we’re moving ahead. Being busy doesn’t always translate to success. We can spend all our time doing lots of things that demand our attention and at the end of the day, still be in the same place as when we started. There is no end to things that need to be done, but if we want to get to the destinations we truly desire, we must carefully weigh our choices to ensure we do what we must while still moving toward our goals. Our lives are important and every dream is possible, but we must do what is needed to make them ours. Going here and there, doing endless tasks, and staying busy will not guarantee success. If we want to prevail, we must take control of our time and keep the destination in focus. Life is full of surprises and there will be times when we must set everything aside to take care of a pressing matter. Setting a goal aside isn’t abandoning it and as soon as the situation changes, we can re-focus and start again. We can go anywhere and do anything we desire. We have all the wisdom and courage we need to create the lives we want the most, and reach success.

Unless we live on a deserted island, there will likely be lots of people all around us most of the time. We have friends, co-workers, family members, associates, acquaintances, and people we see only in passing. They may need us from time to time and we can certainly help out if asked. It’s good to be supportive and lend a helping hand, but we need not allow our beneficence to take over our lives. There is no need to completely sacrifice our own desires in an effort to help those around us. We can give our time in ways that benefit others and still allow us to accomplish our personal goals.

Everyone has their own opinions about how things should be done. If we have a relationship with them, and they are in need, they may expect us to abandon our plans and devote all our energies to helping them. We can do that if we like, but we never have to give more than we’re comfortable with. It isn’t selfish to manage our time in ways that help out and still allow us to continue forward. We’re intelligent and capable, and nothing is beyond our reach. We can focus on the road ahead, and reach every goal we desire.

Today if you’re busy with lots of details that are keeping you from the goals you desire most, step back and look at everything objectively. Plan your time wisely, and continue ahead. You are amazing and powerful, and can do anything you desire. All your dreams are possible, and you have everything you need to make them yours.

Moving On

23 Apr

We accomplish millions of things as our lives advance. There are tasks we must do to stay on track and keep things rolling forward, responsibilities that need to be taken care of, and seemingly endless projects that continually arise. We may face times when there is more to do than we can possible complete and we have to choose which is most important. What’s important to us can always take priority over other things that need our time. We decide what we want to do and how we want to proceed. But we share the world with lots of other people who have their own opinions. They may bring ideas and projects they want us to do with them or accomplish for them. If we are under their authority, their desires may take precedence over our own. Our personal choices may have to wait while we do something required of us. However, most of the time we’ll be free to choose for ourselves. Others may ask us to do things for them, and we can certainly help if we like. Most of us want to be helpful, and we may agree when someone asks for our time. Our decisions belong to us and if we want the lives we desire the most, we must make them with our personal goals in mind. There will always be something to take our focus away from what we really want, and if we’re not careful, we may spend our time doing things that cannot move us forward. Our dreams and goals are important, and we can focus on them, and decide to keep moving on and progressing forward. There are unlimited things that can hold us in place, but if we keep our eyes focused on the road ahead, we will get to every destination we seek. We can make our dreams reality, and do anything we desire.

Some people need a lot of individual support as they move forward. We’re all different and our skills and needs differ from one to another. If we’re involved with someone who needs a lot of help and encouragement to progress, they may ask for more of our time than we are comfortable providing. We’re all responsible for our own lives and can make excellent decisions about how we spend our time. We can carefully evaluate what we may offer, and still be successful moving forward.

We always do what we want to do most. Sometimes it’s because there’s something we desire, but other times it may be because we’re under duress or pressured to accommodate a situation. We’re in control of our lives and can always decide what works best for us. We can discern where to offer our time, and choose the best road ahead. We’re intelligent and capable, and there isn’t anything we can’t manage and manage well. Every destination and goal are possible, and with focus and careful planning, we can accomplish anything.

Today if you’re being pulled away from the road you want to travel, manage your time wisely and return to the goal when things change. Keep your focus on the way ahead, and you will reach every destination you desire. You are amazingly capable and nothing is out of reach. Take control of your life and move forward with confidence. Every dream is there for you. Step forward and claim them. There is great success ahead, and nothing can keep you from it.

Forward

8 Apr

Life is complicated. There are times when things outside our control take over, and we can’t move. We don’t know what others are doing, either right beside us, or on the other side of the world. They can make any decisions they want, and sometimes those choices impact us negatively. If we’re suddenly hamstrung, and stuck, and moving forward isn’t possible, we may feel frustrated and worried about what will happen next. How long will this last? How will we ever get to our goals if we can’t move? We might get answers to some of our questions, but others may elude us and leave us hanging. If we’re in a holding pattern and unable to get away, it doesn’t mean our goals will never be possible. It only means we can’t accomplish them right now. Nothing stays the same forever, and indefinite inertia isn’t possible. Things will change and all the roads that are shut and closed will open again. In the meantime, while we wait, we can plan for our next destination. Taking time to prepare while we’re standing still will give us a boost when we can move again. We can set our goals and get ready, and at the first opportunity, jump ahead and proceed toward any destination we desire. A full stop doesn’t mean the journey is over, finished, and concluded. It’s just a pause that holds us in place for a time. Life will continue on. We will be able to move again, and all our dreams will be waiting. Success is still possible and we will achieve all the goals we desire. We can’t control what comes to us, but we can manage it in ways that help us move forward, and continue our journey. Everything is possible, and with patience and determination, we will reach every goal.

The world is a big place, and there are billions of people making endless decisions. Sometimes those choices have far reaching consequences that impact us negatively and bring us to our knees. We have no control over others, and we may get caught up in a situation we didn’t choose, that holds us down. It’s normal to feel angry and upset if we’re restricted and held in place against our will. However, each day the situation will change a little, and in time, we’ll be able to step out and move forward. Change is constant and nothing remains the same indefinitely. Soon we’ll be able to move again, and reach the success we desire.

There are endless goals we can accomplish. We can go anywhere and do anything we desire, if we’re willing to do what is needed to accomplish it. Important, complicated destinations take time and thought to find the best way forward. We can use any down time to plan ahead, and find the best path to any goal we seek. There will always be a way to succeed, and we are smart enough to find it. We can plan for our success, and be ready when the opportunity to advance arises. Every dream is there for us, and we have everything we need to succeed.

Today if you want to move forward but are being held back, don’t worry. Nothing has changed, and all your dreams are still there for you. You are intelligent and capable, and nothing is out of reach. Plan for the future and be confident. Nothing can keep you from any goal you desire. Every success is possible, and you will reach it.
