Gonna Do It

21 Apr

We make millions of decisions as we go through our lives. We decide where we’ll live, what we’ll do, where we’ll go and endless others. Some are inconsequential and our choices don’t impact us much, but others are more serious and have lasting consequences. If there is something we want to do, we may talk about it, think about it, make all kinds of plans to do it and dream about how our lives will be once we’ve accomplished it. Thinking, and talking and planning are all important, and it’s fun to dream, but nothing will ever change until we purposely start doing what is necessary to make the goal a reality. They say talk is cheap and that’s true. We can talk about what we’re gonna do, where we’re gonna go, and share endless dreams with those around us. We can think of a dozen ways to get the job done, and plan indefinitely. There is no hurry to reach success, but until we actually start moving forward toward the destinations we most desire, we’ll remain exactly where we are. Some things are hard to do and some goals will take a lot of time and effort to achieve. If what we want is difficult to accomplish, and will take a lot of energy and focus, we may need to wait until we have the time and freedom to make it ours. Everything is possible and when we’re ready, nothing is out of reach. We can trust ourselves to find the best roads ahead, and reach every destination.

We can’t see the end of the road from the beginning. We may start toward something new only to discover the road ahead is more complicated and difficult than we imagined. If the journey will be harder and more arduous than we thought, we can step back and decide how we want to proceed. The goal will be there for us, and we can plan the best time to move forward. Success will always be possible, and with determination and focus we will make it ours.

Some people talk about a lot of things they plan to do. They tell us where they’re going to go, how their lives will change and endless other tales about how things will be once they accomplish their big plan. Wishing and hoping and dreaming are one thing. Doing what is needed to change our lives is something else. We are wise and powerful, and can do anything we desire. Every dream is possible and we can make them ours.

Today if you’re been dreaming about something you desire, and planning on how you’ll make it yours, take the first step. Begin your journey today. There is no need to wait for everything to fall in place perfectly. You are smart and capable, and can do anything you want. Be confident and step forward. Every single destination is possible, and you will make them yours.

You Take It

25 Mar

We share the world with billions of other people, and although we won’t meet even a tiny fraction of them, there are often people around us much of the time. They pass us on the street, work for us and with us, we have friends, family members, acquaintances and others. Unless we live alone and stay inside, we’re likely going to run into someone. Everyone has their ideas about life and what they will do. Nobody gets a free pass, and we’re all going to face trouble and challenges at some point. Some people are very confident and rarely get flustered even when things are going wrong, but others may struggle and find it hard to manage even the smallest problems. If we are close to them and they rely on us, and they are easily overwhelmed, they may try to push their problems off on us. They might simply hand them over, and say “Here, you take care of it,” and walk away. If they are in a position of authority over us, we may have no choice but to do as they ask. But if we’re on a level field, we never have to take on what isn’t ours. They may try to hand whatever they don’t want off onto us, but we never have to accept it. We all have enough personal crap to manage, and complicating our own lives by trying to manage someone else’s will never lead us to success. We can listen when others complain, and offer any advice that might help, and then leave them to it. If they don’t take care of business, it’ll be their mess to clean up. Our lives are important and we deserve complete happiness. By taking care of ourselves, and doing what is needed to reach our own personal goals, we will find great satisfaction and peace. Life is what we make it and by being wise and clear about what is ours and what we will do, we will reach every destination and find great success.

It’s good to be helpful and offer assistance when we can. We can give guidance and help others when needed. It’s noble to sacrifice ourselves for those around us, but it isn’t selfish to be sure we take care of our personal needs first. There is nothing to be gained if we give up all our time to someone else and neglect our own journeys. Our lives are our responsibility and we can be wise and do what we can without breaking the bank. We can find the right balance between giving and taking, and reach every goal.

Nobody wants to suffer or go through hard times. When we’re facing a very difficult situation and we don’t know what to do, we don’t have to surrender and try to hide. Even the most complex problems have solutions, and there isn’t anything we can’t figure out. By taking our time and looking at every possible option, we will find the answers we need. We are stronger and more capable than we think we are, and nothing can hold us down when we want to move. By trusting ourselves and taking things one step at a time, we can overcome anything and win.

Today be confident and trust yourself. Remember what is yours, and let others manage their own. Be kind and caring, and move forward with confidence and clarity. You are amazing and capable, and there isn’t anything you can’t do. Trust yourself and step forward with confidence. Every single goal is possible and nothing can hold you in place. There is great success just ahead and you will reach it.

Nothing Left

9 Mar

Our lives are often busy, and the checklist of things we need to get done may be long and complicated. There is a never ending supply of issues that may arise and in the midst of trying to accomplish our tasks, something may go awry that throws everything off course. We share the world with billions of other people who are all making decisions and doing things that may affect our lives and tangle the way forward. If we’ve been working hard for a long time, dealing with problems and stress, we may reach a point where we’re exhausted and can no longer focus. Nobody can keep going at full speed indefinitely. We all have limits and no matter how much energy we had at the beginning, we may use it all up and reach a point where we have nothing left. We can’t think, we can’t plan, we can hardly move. We can work on details all day every day and still never reach the end. Working endlessly and pushing ourselves to exhaustion will never help us move ahead. Instead of constantly trying to do more and pressing forward with ever increasing speed, we can look at the situation objectively and make a plan to accomplish whatever is pending in ways that allow us to succeed without breaking the bank. Success is always there, and in most cases, there is no time limit to reach it except what we put on ourselves. Everyone wants to quickly achieve the goals they desire, but if we move ahead using our time wisely, and allow for periods of rest and contemplation, the road ahead will be easier to manage. Rome wasn’t built in a day and we don’t have to do everything right now. We know what we want, and already have everything we need to achieve it. By being thoughtful and moving forward with wisdom, we can reach every goal and destination. Nothing is too far away, and by carefully planning the road ahead, we will succeed.

Some people like to challenge others to make them prove their worth. They may ask us to show them what we can do, and if we want to impress them, we might try to break all speed records for accomplishing what they ask for. Rushing ahead and trying to get there first may work for us but going fast just to get to the goal may cause us to miss important clues and cues along the way. It does no good to reach a destination fast if we skip over important details we’ll need when we get there. We are smart enough to find the best way forward, and with patience and clarity, can reach every goal.

There may be times when due to circumstances beyond our control, or unforeseen complications, we need to do more than normal and work harder than we’re used to. When we begin to feel fatigued and overwhelmed, we can stop for a moment and take a break to rest and restore. Just a few minutes sitting alone peacefully and quietly can bring great refreshment and give us the energy we need to continue on. Life is complex but we are stronger and more capable than we imagine, and nothing is too difficult for us to manage.

Today if you’re in a complicated situation that is pushing you to your limits, stop and stand still. Taking time to recharge will enable you to continue forward with clarity and focus. You are amazing and powerful and can do incredible things. Trust yourself and be confident. There isn’t anything you can’t do and every success is there for you. There is greatness in you, and you will prevail.

Waiting to Begin

22 Feb

We can do anything we like and there are endless options from which to choose. We can go anywhere and accomplish any goal we desire, creating the lives we want the most. There is never a time when we must stay where we are or continue doing something that isn’t fulfilling or doesn’t move us closer to where we want to be. But nothing changes without effort. We can do all our research, make an excellent plan, get everything ready and be completely prepared to move ahead, but everything will remain the same until we actually move forward. Starting a new journey takes courage, and there will never be a perfect time to begin. If we stand and wait until everything falls into place, and every road ahead is clear, we may never move. There will be few times in life when the way forward toward our goal is completely paved and open, ready to glide us easily to the destination. Life is complicated and there are always a lot of unknowns. If we wait for the perfect opening before we start, odds are we’ll never go anywhere. We are intelligent and highly capable and can trust ourselves that no matter what we face moving forward, we’ll be able to manage and continue on. The road may twist around, we might get stuck a time or two, there may be things in the way or people blocking our path. It doesn’t matter how complex the journey becomes. We are powerful and wise, and can find our way through. By stepping forward with confidence and pushing ahead no matter what happens, we will reach success. We can have the lives we dream of and achieve every goal. Nothing is out of reach and we will succeed.

In order to prepare to attend a big event, we can put on the right clothes, make sure we have our tickets, get our car keys and do whatever else needs to be done before we leave. After completing everything, if all we do is stand at the door, ready to go, but never open it and proceed, we will miss the entire production. Of course, we would never do such a foolish thing, but making big plans for what we most want to accomplish, and then doing nothing to put those plans into action is the same thing. Talk is cheap and changes nothing. We can do anything we like, but we actually have to do what is needed to make it ours.

Dreaming is important. It helps us define what we want the most and motivates us to move forward. We can dream all we like, and make endless lists for how we’re going to do whatever we’re thinking about. Planning is important, but that is only the first step. Nobody is going to grant our fondest wishes just because we made a great plan to achieve them. We are strong and intelligent, and already know what we want. Every goal is possible, and with determination and focus, we can make them ours.

Today if you’ve been planning to start on a goal you want to achieve, but haven’t yet begun forward, take the first step. You are amazing and powerful, and nothing is out of reach. Trust yourself and be confident. The whole world is there for you and every success is possible. Keep your eyes on the goal, and move forward toward success. Every blessing is waiting and you will make them yours.

Off the Treadmill

1 Feb

Life is filled with opportunities and possibilities. No matter where we are or what we’re doing, there will be countless options available if we want them. We can change anything at any time, but it takes effort and a willingness to do what is necessary to facilitate any change we desire. Walking on a treadmill will keep us busy, but we will never move out of place. We will stay exactly where we are, no matter how much energy we exert. If we’re busy but we’re not moving closer to our goals, we can change our situation. If we’re in a job that is unfulfilling and isn’t moving us forward, or a relationship that doesn’t make us happy, or a thousand other things, and we’re ready to move on to something else, we can. Making a big change in our lives will take serious thought and contemplation. It may cause a disruption that may bring uncertainty as we transition to something new. But our lives are ours to design and our happiness is important. We can decide what we really desire, where we want to go, and what we really want to do. Every option is possible but they won’t all be easy to achieve. Some changes take a lot of work and time but if we’re determined and focused on the goal we can get there. We already know what we want, and have everything we need to make it ours. We deserve complete happiness, and never have to settle for second best. By deciding what we want the most, and then taking the first step toward the goal, we can begin the journey that will bring us satisfaction and happiness. Everything is there for us, and with patience and wisdom, we can trust ourselves to do what is needed to achieve anything. It’s all there waiting, and we can make it ours.

When we’re ready to make a change, those around us may not agree. It’s easy when everything stays the same, and change can make some people uncomfortable. We don’t need agreement or permission to do anything we desire. We can share our plans if we like, and then start forward according to our own desires. When problems arise, we will solve them, and if unforeseen issues complicate the road ahead, we will find the answers we need. We are highly capable and nothing is out of reach.

Routines and patterns are easy to maintain. We know what to do and pretty much what to expect. It’s tempting to stay in an unfulfilling situation simply because we’re used to it. But our dreams can never come true if we don’t pursue them. Nothing is going to come to us without effort. We are more powerful and capable than we think we are, and when we’re ready, nothing can keep us from success.

Today if you’re ready for something new, decide what you want the most and make a plan. Then take the first step forward, and keep your eyes on the goal. You are amazing and strong, and every destination is there for you. You can have the life you dream of. Be confident and keep moving ahead. Every possible success is there for you, and you will make them yours.
