Uncovering

12 Oct

Our lives are a reflection of our choices. Every decision we make takes us somewhere and changes our path in some way. We can’t predict anything and sometimes our decisions take us places we never dreamed we’d go. There is no way to see around the next turn or know what others will do. Even when we try to choose well, sometimes our plans go up in smoke. If we take the time to look at all the options before us, and determine which will work before we begin, we’ll have a better chance of reaching success. There are endless sources of information and we are often bombarded with ideas and suggestions from every direction. Some people think they know what we need and may try to influence us to follow their lead. Others may purposely mislead us in an effort to achieve something for themselves. Believing whatever we hear is fraught with trouble. The loudest voice and brightest light don’t always lead us where we want to go. The first options that appear may not be our best choice. If we are eager to move forward, we may jump ahead without looking, and that might work out for us, or may take us in the wrong direction. Instead of rushing ahead, we can take some time to uncover the truth in every situation and see the best road ahead. The paved, clear path that’s been well traveled may look good, but easy access doesn’t always lead to success. Following everyone else will only take us where they’re going. By deciding what we want the most and then taking the time we need to find the best way forward, we can reach any goal or destination. We are intelligent and can make excellent decisions. We know what we want, and with patience and clarity, we can uncover all the facts, and reach every destination.

If we’re in a situation that isn’t what we want, and we aren’t happy, we can decide how we will proceed. We can choose to stay and complain, and do nothing to change it, or we can decide what we really want, and then take the first step forward. Being in the same place for a long time doesn’t mean we have to stay there forever. Our lives are ours to design, and we can change anything at any time. We deserve complete happiness, and when we’re ready, we can achieve it. Every blessing is always there for us. Nothing can keep us from success.

Some people are very persuasive. They know what to say and how to say it to get others to follow them. We may fall under their spell and end up somewhere we don’t want to be. We have everything we need to uncover the truth in any situation. We can listen politely, and then investigate the facts until we discover what is real. We never have to go along with anything we don’t want, and with purpose and intent, can control every decision we make, and reach our goals.

Today if you’re being pressured to follow along, look at everything openly and objectively. Uncover the truth of the situation and make the best choice moving forward. There is great success waiting for you and nothing can keep you from it. Be confident, and stand strong. You are more powerful and wise than you imagine, and you will prevail.

At the End

9 Sep

There are endless roads we can take to unlimited destinations. Our lives are a continual process of moving forward, either to somewhere we desire, or someplace else. We can make any choices we like and go anywhere we imagine, and each road we choose will have a destination at the end. If we’re paying attention and making decisions that keep us moving toward the goals we desire, we’ll reach success and find ourselves in situations and places that are pleasing. But life is complicated and there’s always a lot going on. Others may impact us with the decisions they’re making, and the way ahead may get dark and confusing. It’s easy to get distracted and lose our footing, and if time passes before we reset, we may not be able to reclaim our previous position, and have to start again. Every road ends at some point, and when we choose the first step on any path, we are also choosing the last. If we don’t want to end up where it’s leading, we’ll need to step off and re-evaluate our next move. Life is filled with opportunities and if we get lost or turned around, we have endless chances to try again. Every single destination is possible, and with focus and clarity, we can go anywhere we want. Our dreams are always there for us, and we can claim them all.

The world is filled with all kinds of opportunities, and there are lots of shiny things that may grab our attention. The lure and promise of success may pull us in several directions at the same time. We can do anything we like but it’s impossible to do everything we desire all at once. By looking at all the options possible, and deciding on what we want the most, we can begin moving forward toward success. We are wise and extremely capable, and nothing is too difficult for us to overcome. With patience and persistence, we can reach every destination, and find great satisfaction and happiness.

Lots of people may tell us what we should do, where we should go, how we should act, what we should look like, and endless other suggestions. We can take any advice we like, but nobody knows us better than we know ourselves. We know what we want, and have everything needed to achieve it. We don’t have to follow anyone else, or conform to their ideas. Our lives are ours to design, and we can do anything we like. We can choose the roads we’ll travel, and find success.

Today if you’re on a road that isn’t going where you most want to go, stop and decide how you want to proceed. You never have to stay anywhere you don’t want to be. Choose the destination you desire most, and change direction. You are intelligent and wise, and every destination is possible. Be confident and begin again. All your dreams are waiting, and you will make them yours.

Hesitation

26 May

When we’re facing a big decision, we may feel unsure about how to proceed. It’s important to get as much information as we can before we begin. If we carefully uncover as many facts as possible about what the situation is, what may go wrong, and who will be involved, we have a better shot of things working out the way we want them to. Big decisions that may change our lives and take us to unknown destinations will need a lot of thought and preparation before we take the leap. If we take our time, and uncover all the possible outcomes that may occur, we will feel more confident once we step forward. Even if we prepare well, we don’t know what we don’t know. It may happen that there will be unexpected developments that force us to change direction, or unforeseen complications that stop are progress. Nobody can read the future, but if the goal is important and we’re determined to reach it, we will find our way through whatever comes. Change can be uncomfortable, and we may hesitate to continue moving forward if the road becomes difficult. There is no rush to reach success. If we need time to stop and think, we can take it. The destination will still be there when we’re ready to move again. Taking a time out isn’t surrendering to defeat. We have all the wisdom and courage we need to do anything we desire. Some goals are hard to reach, may become tangled up and difficult to navigate, and may take far longer than we anticipated. It’s impossible to see the end of any road from the beginning, but we can move ahead one step at a time and find our way. There isn’t any journey too difficult for us to navigate, or goal too far away for us to reach. Once we’ve decided what we want, we can reach success. Every single dream is possible. By focusing on the way ahead, and choosing to continue forward, we will gain the prize.

Everyone has their own personal timetable for making decisions. Some people like to choose quickly and jump ahead, confident they will be able to face whatever comes. Others prefer to think about their choices a little longer. They want to be sure they’ve uncovered as much information as possible before they begin. What we do and how we do things is a personal expression. We know who we are and what we want, and can decide how we’ll move forward at every step.

It’s difficult to make good decisions if we’re impulsive and impatient. If we jump into situations without thinking, and things go wrong, we can either tough it out and make the best of it, or simply give up. The old saying that, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure,” is accurate. If we don’t prepare or plan before we jump headlong into a situation, the odds of success will diminish. Nobody wants to work for nothing. We are intelligent and wise and can make excellent decisions. By taking our time, and choosing wisely, we will find great satisfaction and happiness.

Today if you’re facing a big decision and you’re hesitating because you’re unsure, look at all the facts before you. You are intelligent and capable of making excellent choices. Decide what you want and then take the first step ahead. Every single success is there for you and nothing is out of reach. Be confident and trust yourself. You will succeed.

Logical

18 May

As we go through our lives, we decide what we’ll accomplish and where we’ll go. As we progress, the road will likely wind around and bend as it takes us to many places along the way. There’s a lot to see as we move forward, and we can alter our plans at any time and take any detours we like to experience everything we’re interested in. Every road has a destination, but as we look ahead, the next logical step forward may not be exactly what we want. Just because a road continues in one direction, doesn’t mean we have to continue with it. We can adjust our trajectory and change lanes at any time. We are constantly learning and growing and as we move forward and see more of the scenery and options possible, we may decide on a new plan. We can never see the end of the road from the beginning, and even if we’re sure we’re headed in the right direction when we start out, our focus may change mid-stream, and if we want, we can re-route the way forward. We’re always in control of our decisions and can do anything we like. We may start out headed east, and then decide that going north will give us more of what we desire. Nothing is written in stone and we can change anything at any time. Logic is important, but logic is part of reasoning and has nothing to do with our feelings. Sometimes our feelings change about what we want, and we may decide to do something different. There is no one perfect way to live life. There are unlimited roads to travel and endless places to go. We can alter our plans at any time and move in a different direction whenever we’re ready. Starting out going one way does not require us to keep going the same way. Every destination is possible and as we move forward, we can adjust our course at any time to make sure we end up exactly where we want to go. All goals are there for us, and we will reach success.

Making a good, solid plan for moving ahead is helpful. However, we don’t live in a vacuum, and life is complex. There are often unexpected developments that may get in our way or block the road ahead. We can’t read the future or predict what others will do. When problems develop, we don’t have to give up and walk away. We are smart enough to see everything clearly and find the answers we need to keep moving forward.

Mathematical equations are solved by following clear and concise rules. We can try to achieve our personal goals by applying the same type of objective logic, and sometimes that will work. But we aren’t robots and it’s impossible to completely divorce ourselves from our feelings. We are human beings and feel some things deeply. Listening to everything, how we think and how we feel, will help us make the best decisions and reach success.

Today if the plans you’ve made are perfect on paper, but aren’t working out exactly as you hoped, think about how you want to proceed. Every goal is possible, but you may need to modify your direction to reach them. There are many roads to every destination. You are intelligent and wise, and every success is possible. Trust yourself and step forward. Success is just ahead, and you will reach it.

Two Roads

29 Apr

The world is filled with opportunities and possibilities. There will be few times when we have only one possible way forward, and often there will be several options and roads we could choose, and many different prospects ahead. We’re in control of our lives and can design them any way we desire, but where we go depends on the choices we make. Every decision will take us somewhere and change something, and if we’re not paying attention or don’t look before we jump, we might end up somewhere we never intended to go. When we’re standing at the crossroads between going one way or another, the direction we choose will decide what comes next. Two roads may look the same, and we may not be able to see beyond the first curve. There may be no obvious difference at first, but they may end up at entirely different destinations. So how do we choose? There is no way to read the future, but by learning everything we can about the choices available, we can trust ourselves to make the best decision. We can step forward on the road that will lead us to the destinations we want most, and then continue forward until we reach the goal. Life is complicated and there will always be unforeseen developments that may slow our progress, problems may arise that stop us for a time, and we may need to take a detour or two. But if we’re determined to continue forward, nothing can keep us from success. When two roads lie before us, and we must choose, we can take our time, and decide what we want most. We are capable of making excellent decisions and can choose the direction that takes us to the future we desire. Every single possibility is already there for us and nothing can keep us from reaching any destination. By trusting ourselves, and stepping forward with confidence, we can make our dreams come true.

Our lives are often busy. It’s easy to get caught up in routine responsibilities and set our personal goals aside. We may think we’ll get to them when things slow down, but life is complex, and there are few times when everything falls into place perfectly. Our personal dreams are important, and when we’re ready, no matter what’s going on around us, we can begin toward them. The life we want the most won’t just happen because we desire it. We must create it. Every possibility is there for us, but we must decide to step forward and claim it.

Indecision and procrastination are powerful and can hold us in place indefinitely. If we simply think about what we want instead of making a decision and stepping forward, we’ll go nowhere. If we continually put off choosing something, time will pass, and nothing will change. We can have the lives we want, but we must create them. We can be confident, choose the roads we desire most, and then move toward success.

Today if you’re trying to decide which way to go, trust yourself. You know what you want and have everything necessary to succeed. Look at all the possibilities before you and choose the road that will take you where you want to go. Everything is possible and nothing is too far or too difficult to reach. Step forward with confidence. Nothing can keep you from success and all your dreams can come true.
