Faster Faster

2 Aug

Life is full of opportunities and possibilities for success. There are endless options to consider and unlimited chances to achieve anything we want. Most of us will have plenty of time to plan and accomplish many of the goals we desire. We can decide what we want most, make a plan and then begin forward until we reach it. Every dream is possible and with focus and determination, nothing can keep us from reaching any destination. Our lives belong to us and we’re in control of what we do and how we do it, but there may be pressures from others around us to go faster, and push harder to get to the goal as quickly as possible. If we’re intimidated by them, or they have authority over us, we may try to cut corners and skip over steps in an effort to accomplish the goal in ways that satisfy them. We can try to go faster and faster, and we might succeed but rushing ahead without thought or caution might end up working against us in the long run. Doing something half way in order to get there quicker will never bring us satisfaction or excellence. It would be great if we could achieve our goals instantaneously simply because we desire them, but that will never happen. We have to work to get them, and although there may be some paved roads ahead that allow us to move quickly, there will likely be complications and details that require our attention and hold us up. If we ignore problems that creep up, we might be able to get by, but they may come back to bite us in the end. Going faster doesn’t always bring us the best results. We can rush and rush, and push ourselves to the limit, and we might get to the goal quicker, but what we leave undone will remain unfinished until we go back and address it. Every goal is possible but we don’t have to accomplish them all today. By taking the time we need to address any problems or complications, and tie up all the loose ends, we’ll be able to achieve the goal effectively and completely. We are capable of greatness and nothing is out of reach. With wisdom and patience, every destination is possible, and we will reach them all.

We know what we want and can design our lives any way we like, but there are lots of people around us and they may have other ideas. We may get unsolicited advice and told we need to go here or there, or do this or that, which fits someone else’s idea of how we should live. We’re all entitled to our own opinions, but they belong solely to us, and nobody completely understands what anyone else wants or needs. We can listen to any suggestions we receive, and then choose what’s best for us. We don’t have to follow anyone else’s ideas or time tables. The road ahead is ours to choose, and we can do anything we desire.

There is a lot of pressure in the world to do more, do it better, and do it faster. We are bombarded with suggestions that we should strive harder and push further, but nobody knows us better than we know ourselves. Our lives belong to us, and we know how we want to live them. By being authentic to our own personal desires, and choosing the roads that take us where we most want to go, we will find great happiness and satisfaction. Every single destination is possible and nothing is too far away or too difficult for us to achieve. We can do things our way, and reach success.

Today if you’re being pushed to go faster to get to a goal, think about what you want the most. Look at all the options possible, and choose the best way forward. You can do things your way and achieve great success. Choose the best roads ahead and step forward with clarity and confidence. You are amazing and capable, and nothing is impossible. You can have the life you dream of, reach every destination and make your dreams come true.

Not Sorry

30 Jul

There are billions of people in the world and we’re all unique. No two people are exactly the same, and we all have our own preferences, desires, and decisions to make. There is an unlimited variety of personalities and expressions, and we each choose our own way. Sometimes we’ll agree with those around us and take the same road moving forward, but with all the differences there are bound to be times when we clash. What others want us to do may be fine for them but not exactly what we want. We’re in control of our lives and can make any decisions we like. Our lives are ours alone and we can design them any way we choose. We don’t have to follow what anyone else is doing, or take any suggestions we don’t want. We decide how we’ll move forward, where we’ll go and what we’ll accomplish. It’s all up to us, but if we’re insecure or unsure of ourselves, we might step in line even if we want to do something else. It takes courage to chart our own course, especially if it’s different from what those around us are doing. It can be intimidating to go against the flow but just because everyone else is going west doesn’t mean we can’t go east. Others may try to make us comply and follow their lead, but we know what we want, and have everything we need to get it. We never have to apologize for being ourselves. We were created with specific and individual gifts and traits that no one else in all of creation has. Nobody can bring the blessings we have to offer. We can go our own way, color outside the lines, and choose any destination we like. Life is an incredible gift and when we live it according to our own personal choices and desires, we will find great satisfaction and happiness. Every success is there for us, and every destination is possible. Being true to who we are will help us reach them all.

Traditions, families and cultural norms are powerful. Paved roads that millions of people have walked on are always easy to travel. When things have been done certain way for a long time it can be difficult to consider an alternate method. But change is constant and nothing can stay the same forever. If we want something different than what others are doing, we can change direction and go another way. Cutting a new path isn’t easy, but we are strong and powerful, and no matter what comes, will be able to get through. Once we decide what we really want, we can begin moving toward it and find our way until we reach success. Nothing is too difficult for us to manage, and we can have the lives we dream of.

Nobody is perfect and we all stumble from time to time. If we hurt someone, or make a bad decision we might be sorry, but we never have to be sorry for living our lives according to our own desires. Happiness comes when we are authentic and truthful with ourselves about who we are and what we want. Following along and trying to fit a mold that doesn’t work will never bring us true contentment. We are perfect just as we are, and have so much to offer. By believing in ourselves, and honoring our personal worth, we will find great happiness and success.

Today if you feel pressure to conform to something you aren’t, be honest and choose your own way. You know who you are and what you want, and you bring great depth and richness to us all. Your gifts are priceless and precious. Trust yourself and stand tall. You have so much to offer and the whole world is blessed because you are here.

Finally Enough

14 Jul

Our lives belong solely to us and we can do anything we like. Everyone has an idea of how they want things to go and what they want to do, but the desire to accomplish something isn’t always enough motivation to get us moving. We may really, really want to lose weight, but somehow find a way each day to sabotage our efforts. We might truly want a new career, but don’t take the time we need to start looking for other options and preparing for something new. Desiring something is only the first step toward getting there. Whatever we want to achieve is possible, but we must follow through on what is necessary to make the dream reality. There is enough wisdom and intelligence in all of us to do whatever we want, but we have to decide once and for all that it will be ours, and then focus clearly on doing what is needed to obtain it. If we’ve wavered for a long time, and have experienced several failures to follow through, it’s not too late. Once we finally decide we’ve had enough delaying and putting it off, we can begin the journey forward. People are complex and there will always be a thousand reasons to wait on any decision. We might be really busy, and have a lot of projects going on right now. Or our relationships may require a lot of attention. Or we don’t feel at our best, or it’s raining outside. If we want an excuse to stay put and do nothing, there will always be something available. There are lots of reasons why we may not pursue what we want, but if we really want to accomplish the goal, nothing can keep us from it. We just have to decide what we want the most. Once we’ve decided, we can do what is needed to take the first step. We can have the lives we want the most if we’re willing to take control and make them ours. Nothing is out of reach, and we will find our way to success.

Nobody sets out to take a trip without deciding where they’ll go. If we simply get in our cars and drive all day with no planned destination, the odds of ending up where we want to go are slim to none. We can live our days simply following along and taking whatever comes and hope we’ll end up with the lives we desire most, but that isn’t likely to happen. If we want to be happy, we must decide where we’ll go and what we’ll do, and then begin forward with purpose. Every destination is there for us, and with clarity and determination, we can make them ours.

Most things are achievable but not everything will come easily. Getting fit and losing weight takes constant diligence and focus, gaining a new career will require research and maybe additional education. If we determine that the cost to achieve the goal is worth the benefit once we get there, we can make a plan and step forward. Everything is possible and nothing is too difficult or too far away. We know what we want, and have everything we need to get it.

Today if you’ve been putting off a goal you want to achieve, decide what you want the most. There isn’t anything you can’t accomplish. Make a plan and step forward with confidence. Every dream is possible and with focus and patience, you can make them yours.
