Dare to Begin

14 Apr

We’re all moving forward, taking chances, choosing roads, and creating our lives with every choice we make.  There are endless opportunities and unlimited paths to follow, and we can design things any way we like.  We all have an idea of what our perfect life looks like, and no matter where we’re going, or what we’re doing, can make decisions that will either push us further away or move us closer to it.  If we aren’t happy where we are now, we can move in a new direction.  Every blessing is possible, but one thing is certain – if we change nothing, nothing will change.  It’s a simple concept, but life is complex and there are a lot of moving parts.  If we have many balls in the air and are inundated, the idea of working on something new may be overwhelming.  Even if we want to change our circumstances, we may put it off thinking we’ll get to it when things settle down.  That might work, but life is unpredictable, and it’s often unclear when our situation will change.  Waiting until the road is open and we have everything in place to start a new journey may seem like a good plan, but when that will occur is anyone’s guess.  Rare are the times when everything sails along without complication.  Most of the time there will be something in the way, and other responsibilities to address.  We can do anything we like, but if we want the lives we dream about, we must dare to begin moving toward them despite what is happening around us now.  Every possibility is already there for us, and we are wise enough and courageous enough to reach success.  The world is filled with opportunities and every goal is within reach.  By deciding what we want the most and then doing what is necessary to make it ours, we can create the lives we dream of.  Nothing is too far or too difficult to reach.  Every single destination is possible, and with determination and focus, we will succeed.

Life can be complicated, and we may be very busy.  We may accomplish many things but if we aren’t moving toward what we really want it’s unlikely we’ll feel completely fulfilled and happy.  We are intelligent and can find ways to monitor and control the time we spend in every pursuit to ensure we have time to work toward the goals we most desire.  Our lives are important and achieving the destinations we want the most will bring us great satisfaction and happiness.

Time flies and once it’s gone can never be recaptured.  We may believe that if we haven’t yet worked toward the goals we desire, it’s too late, and they are now out of reach.  It’s never too late to change course and push toward what we most want to accomplish.  We may need to reorganize our priorities and make some changes, but every dream is still possible.  We can have the lives we want the most and reach every goal.  It’s all there for us.  We need only step forward and claim it.

Today if you’ve been putting off what you most want to accomplish, think about how you want to proceed.  Every dream is possible, but you must begin forward to make them yours.  You are amazing and more powerful than you imagine.  Success is there for you, and you will reach every goal.

New Roads

8 Apr

Nothing is permanent in life and change is constant. We go through many different passages and each day brings something new. As we develop and grow, our preferences and desires modify. What was important and captivating in the past may no longer interest us, and we may step forward onto something new. Opening new doors is exciting, but it also means we’re leaving where we were behind. We may change our jobs, our location, relationships, personal associations, or anything else in our lives at any time. If there is contention, it may be easier to walk away and not look back, but if we’re happy where we are but our focus has changed, and we want to go in a new direction, it may be painful to let go and move on. Nothing can stay the same forever, but that doesn’t always make the transition from one road to another easy. Even if we know we’re making the best choice for us, leaving what is familiar can be difficult. We all want to be comfortable but it’s impossible to experience something new by staying in the same place. The world is filled with opportunities and possibilities. There isn’t anything we can’t do if we’re willing to step away from where we are onto a new road. We have all the courage and wisdom to accomplish any goal and reach any destination, but if we want to move forward, we must be willing to let go of where we are. Our lives are ours to design and nothing is out of reach. By trusting ourselves, deciding what we want the most, and then doing what is needed to make it ours, we will gain great satisfaction and happiness. Everything is possible. Every dream can be ours. We can step forward with confidence and clarity and move toward the lives we desire. The whole world is there for us, and we will succeed.

Routines are comfortable. When we do basically the same things every day, we know what to expect and it’s easy to continue. We can keep the same jobs, live in the same place, and follow the same patterns we’re accustomed to for as long as we like. But if we yearn for more and want something new, we must be willing to step onto a new road. Foreign territory can be intimidating, but it’s only foreign until we make it ours. We know what we want, and by stretching beyond where we are, we can reach any goal we desire.

There are no guarantees in life, but some things are predictable. If we do the same things over and over again, nothing will change. Trying something new can be uncomfortable at first, and we may be unsure we can succeed. The first step may be tremulous, but each successful step forward will bring more confidence and determination. There isn’t anything we can’t accomplish if we continue forward and keep our eyes on the goal. Every gift is possible, and we have everything we need to succeed.

Today if you want to try something new but are unsure, trust yourself. You are stronger and more powerful than you imagine. There is greatness in you, and you can accomplish anything. Step onto a new road and move toward the goal. Every single dream is possible, and you will make them yours.

Pause

30 Mar

Everyone has their own dreams and goals they want to accomplish. They are personal to our own individual journeys, and we decide where we want to go and what we want to do. If we were all alone and there were no obstacles to impede our progress, we could accomplish everything as soon as we desired. But life is full of diversions, distractions, unexpected developments, other people making all kinds of decisions that impact us, and a million other complications. We may run into something that stops us and blocks the way forward that requires us to pause in our pursuits for a time. It’s frustrating to have to wait when we want to move, but if we must endure an interruption, we can find ways to make it beneficial. As we wait, we can use the time to review how far we’ve come and look at all the possibilities for the way ahead. Answers may appear that we overlooked while we were pressing forward, and we might discover better methods for accomplishing our goal. Taking a pause in our progress doesn’t mean we must forsake the goal. Time out is not the end. It’s just a break from the road to address something else. While some goals may be time sensitive and stopping might prevent us from achieving them now, most of the time what we’re after can wait while we take care of other things. We can manage what needs our attention right now, take care of it, and then resume our journey forward toward our own personal goals. We know what we want, and there isn’t a detour powerful enough to keep us from it. Our lives are ours to design and we can do anything we desire. Every goal is possible, and with patience and focus, we will make them ours.

Those around us may ask for our time and assistance. If they have authority over us, we may not be able to decline whatever they request, but if not, we can decide what we want to do. It’s good to be helpful and share our talents and time with others, but if we continually pause our own journey for the sake of someone else’s, we will not achieve the goals we most desire. We can judiciously decide how much time we can offer, be helpful, and still continue forward toward our own goals.

We may be in a relationship with someone who needs a lot of support and guidance, and who continually asks us to do things for them. If we always do everything they ask, we may find it difficult to accomplish our own goals. We’re all responsible for our own lives. It’s impossible to reach our own goals if we give all our time to someone else. We are important and our dreams matter. We can be supportive and kind, and help out, but we need never sacrifice our entire lives for someone else’s comfort.

Today if you’ve been stopped from moving toward your own goals because of the needs of others, look at everything objectively. You are amazing and valuable, and your dreams are important. Be supportive and helpful, and serve in ways that allow you to move forward toward the goals you desire most. You are in control of your life. Every dream is waiting for you, and you have everything you need to make them yours.

Paving the Way

29 Mar

There are unlimited things we can accomplish in our lives and endless places we can go. The whole world is there for us, and every goal is possible. Some roads are easy, and we reach the desired destinations quickly, but others are more complex, and require thought, effort, and time to achieve. We can help ourselves reach success by looking at everything objectively and gathering as much information as possible before we begin. By planning carefully and paying attention as we step forward, we can pave the way ahead and avoid some pitfalls. But there may be times when we get excited, and all we can see is the end of the journey. We might jump in and begin before we get all the facts. If we’re captivated by an idea and eager to get started, we might forgo any prior planning and just start running forward. If we don’t have any clue about what lies ahead, the odds of running into trouble increase. Like stepping into the dark with no idea of direction, we might find ourselves going around in circles as we try to unravel one problem after another. Jumping in without planning may move us in the direction we want to go, but without any idea of what we may encounter, there will likely be unknown obstacles that stop us in our tracks. Roads that are rough and uneven are transformed with good, solid pavement. They become smooth and clear, and much easier to travel. The same is true for our personal goals. We can pave the road ahead with preparation and planning, and create a journey that will move us forward more effectively than if we just thoughtlessly ran ahead. We are intelligent and have enough patience to take the time necessary to ensure success before we begin any journey. There isn’t anything we can’t do and do well. We know what we want, and with focus and clarity, can step forward and make it ours.

Everyone has their own ideas about how things should be done. If we plan something they don’t like or it’s different from the way they would proceed, they may offer us advice, and suggest an alternate scenario. Of course, we can do anything we like and if we prefer their ideas may certainly adopt them, but nobody knows us better than we know ourselves. We don’t need anyone’s permission or agreement to do things our way. Every goal is possible, and we have everything we need to reach them.

Life is unpredictable, and there may be times when we must move quickly and don’t have time to plan before we start. Some situations are unexpected and there is no way to prepare before moving forward, and in those cases, there will be no way to anticipate what will happen. No matter what comes, we can trust ourselves to find the answers we need. We can think on our feet when we must and find our way through. We are intelligent and highly capable, and nothing can hold us down indefinitely.

Today if you have a big goal in mind, think about how you want to proceed, and plan your way forward. You have everything you need to reach any destination you desire. Get all the facts and pave the way ahead to success. Every goal is possible, and nothing can keep you from achieving anything you desire. Step forward and be confident. Every dream is possible, and you will make them yours.

Jekyll Factor

9 Mar

People are complex and we all have many facets to our personalities. Some of us are introverts, remaining calm and quiet most of the time. Others are more outgoing and like to actively interact with those around them. People are unique and unpredictable and there is no way to know what they will do. If things are going well, they may be easy going and friendly, but if events turn and they are agitated, they may suddenly become angry and aggressive. We may be taken by surprise by our own response or those around us. This may be aggravated when outside influences impact our personal control. If we are under the influence of drugs or alcohol, we may seem the same or everything may change. Like changing from Dr. Jekyll to Mr. Hyde, we might manifest behaviors that are the exact opposite of who we are in otherwise normal conditions. Whether from outside influences or the situation we’re in, if that happens, it may affect our lives in ways that impact our relationships and impede our progress. If we act out in ways that are hurtful or destructive, it may be hard to repair the damage once we return to normal. It’s hard to trust people who are volatile and erratic. We don’t know which personality we’ll be dealing with, and that may create a chasm between us and those around us. We are in control of our lives and are free to choose anything we like, but we are not free to choose the consequences of those choices. If we continue to do things that break the trust of those around us and damage our relationships, we may find ourselves all alone, somewhere we never wanted to go. We are smart enough to make good, wise choices and can pave the road ahead to the destinations we most desire. With clarity and determination, we can find great success and build the lives we want the most. Nothing is out of reach, and we have everything we need to prevail.

Our relationships are important to us, and we all want strong, healthy connections to those we love and care about. But building good relationships takes effort and attention. If we routinely trade them off for a quick thrill or step away to do things that put barriers between us, we will never achieve the goal. Nothing is more rewarding or brings more happiness than the bonds we build with those we love. By making our relationships a priority, we will gain great peace and satisfaction, and our lives will be enriched.

The pull of the world can be great. It’s easy to be lured away from what we want most for what we want at the moment. Immediate gratification is a constant temptation, and we may give in to it instead of doing what is needed for long term happiness. We deserve complete happiness and with patience and wisdom, can make decisions that will enable us to reach it. Every blessing is there for us, and every dream is possible. We can trust ourselves to find the answers we need to reach every goal.

Today if you’re thinking about stepping away for an immediate thrill, consider your personal goals. You are a blessing to the world and your light lifts us all. Decide what you want the most, and step forward to claim it. Everything is possible. You are amazing and powerful, and nothing is out of reach. Success is waiting.
