Fresh Air

10 Aug

There are endless things we can accomplish as we move through our lives. The world is huge and there are millions of places to visit and much to see. Although there is lots of opportunity to do anything we want, we have responsibilities, and ties where we are may be hard to break. It’s easy to get into a routine of doing the same things every day and forget that there are unlimited experiences waiting for us. Our jobs, our families, our friends, and all that goes with them give us a great foundation, but they can also hold us in place. We can design our lives any way we like, and if we’re comfortable and content staying where we are, we can. But we are in control and if we want something more, it’s there for us. If we’re in a room that gets stuffy and close, we can open a door and let fresh air in. The same is true in our personal lives. If we’re in a rut and are ready from something different, we need only open a new door and let fresh, inviting new experiences into our lives. There are unlimited things we can do and places we can go. We are the only ones who can keep us from the lives we desire most. Once we decide what we really want, and then commit to doing what it takes to make it ours, we can do anything. Every single dream is possible and nothing is out of reach. The lives we fantasize about and wish for can be ours. There are lots of doors and endless roads to travel. We have all the courage and wisdom needed to do whatever we desire. We can take care of our needs, be responsible, and still move toward what we want. It’s all there for us. We need only step forward, and make it ours.

Tradition is powerful and if our families have done things a specific way for a long time, they may not be supportive if we want to change. Routines make life easy – we know what to do and pretty much know what to expect. Just because something has been done the same way for a while, doesn’t mean we must continue doing it. We are never restricted to any behavior or pattern. When we’re ready to move on to something new, the road will be there for us. Our lives belong to us, and we can live them any way we like. Every door can be opened, and we can find great happiness and success.

Nobody can read the future and it’s hard to see what lies ahead. Stepping toward a new goal may take us into foreign territory. When everything is new and unknown, we may feel unsure at first. But with each step forward, we will gain more confidence, and with determination, if we stay the course, we’ll reach the prize. We are stronger and more capable than we imagine. There isn’t anything powerful enough to keep us from what we want. We can trust ourselves, and go anywhere we desire.

Today if you’re ready to open a new door, decide what you want and take the first step. There are unlimited destinations waiting for you and you have everything you need to reach them. Trust yourself and be confident. There isn’t anything you can’t accomplish. Nothing can hold you in place, and you can have the life you desire. Every dream is possible, and with courage and determination, you will make them yours.

What They Have

29 Jul

We share the planet with lots of other people. They constantly come in and out of our lives, and unless we live on a deserted island, they are all around us. Every person is unique and we all have our own ideas about how things should go and what we should do. We make our own decisions along with all the others around us. When we see someone with a life we think we want, we may wish to be like them. We might watch them and begin to copy what they do, thinking it will bring us what we want. If someone at work is more successful than we are, we could follow their lead and it may bring us greater success. It’s true that if we do everything someone else does, we may get what they have. If it turns out that’s what we really want, we’ll be happy, but seeing just what’s on the outside can never tell us the entire story. Seeing someone with lots of money and influence may look appealing, but doesn’t expose the long hours of work, missed chances for a family and time with friends, or the loss of connections from intense ambition that may also be part of the package. Following another person’s choices will only take us where they want to go, and will never take us to the life we want the most. Our dreams and goals are specific and personal to us. There isn’t anyone else like us in all of creation, and we have gifts to offer the world that nobody else can give. Being true to who we are, and honoring our own choices will bring us great satisfaction. Our happiness is important. By choosing our own journey, we can make all our dreams come true.

If we’re dissatisfied with what we have or what we’ve accomplished, we may struggle with low self-esteem. If we see someone who has more of what we want, we may envy their lives, and feel diminished by their success. Envy is a powerful emotion that never brings happiness. We can step away from it by focusing on the good we’ve accomplished, and reminding ourselves that nobody has everything. Instead of feeling envious, we can celebrate the success of others, focus on our own goals, and move forward with confidence toward the dreams we want to accomplish.

There are endless ideas about life and what is means to be successful. We may have pressure from family or friends to live a certain way, and accomplish certain goals. We can always go along, and take their suggestions, but if they don’t lead us to our own destinations, happiness will elude us. Our lives belong to us. We can listen to any advice given, and then choose the roads that will take us where we most want to go. All our dreams are there for us. We can do anything. By creating our own individual journeys, and reaching our personal goals, we will find happiness and great success. Everything is possible, and we will win.

Today if you’ve been following someone else because what they have is attractive, remember there is always more to the story. Chart your own course for the future. You know what you want, and have everything you need to succeed. Be confident, and step ahead with clarity and focus. Every dream is there for you, and you will make them yours.

Taking It Easy

24 Jul

Our lives are filled with opportunity and endless chances to do anything we want. The world is a big place, and there are unlimited things we can do, and countless places to go. We can plan our lives in ways that enable us to accomplish all our dreams, and do everything we desire. Every dream is possible but it takes courage to step away from what we know and try something new. If we want to, we can take it easy, and just continue in our routine, thinking about what we’d like to do, but never taking the chance to make it happen. Routines are safe. We can do the same things every day and pretty much know what to expect and how things will go. Mastering what is common comes easily, and takes little effort. We can go through our lives repeating the same patterns every day, and although we may be successful in accomplishing some things, it’s unlikely we’ll achieve what we dream about. Our lives are important and we can design them any way we like. We can live in predictable, mediocre ways and become complacent, or we can decide what we want the most, and then do what is needed to make it ours. They say when we die, we don’t regret the things we’ve done, but the things we never tried. We are strong, intelligent, and capable, and can achieve anything we desire. By trusting ourselves and stepping forward with confidence, determined to succeed, we can do anything. Nothing is too far or too difficult for us to manage. Every dream is possible, and we can make them ours. The whole world is there, waiting for us. We need only decide what we want, and then go get it.

It’s easy to feel comfortable when we know where we are, and the road ahead is familiar. We can relax and just take things as they come. Our lives belong to us, but if we don’t control them, others will. We can follow along, do as requested, agree with everyone else’s ideas, and just coast through. If we do, we’ll probably be just fine, but we will never reach our personal goals. It’s impossible to direct our own lives if we’re following someone else. We are the only ones who know what our dreams are and where we want to go. We can take control, and move toward every destination we desire, and succeed. Nothing is off limits, and we can have the lives we want the most.

If we’re trying to accomplish a difficult goal, we may get support from those around us, or they may tell us it’s too hard and we should quit. Many people prefer conformity. They like it when everyone is doing the same things and may be uncomfortable when others try to move forward. They are certainly entitled to their opinions, but they have no influence over our choices. We don’t need agreement to do anything we desire. Our lives are ours, and every goal is possible. We can make our dreams come true, and reach every destination.

Today if you’ve been taking it easy and just going with the flow, think about what you really want. Decide where you want to go, and begin forward. You already have everything you need to do anything you want. Create the life you desire most, and you’ll find great satisfaction and happiness. Every dream is possible, and you will make them yours.

A Million Reasons

14 Jul

Life is filled with opportunities and we can achieve any goal we desire. There are unlimited things to accomplish and we can do anything and go anywhere. We’re in complete control of our lives and can direct them toward any destination we desire. Everything is possible, and nothing is too far, or too difficult for us to manage. We can have the lives we dream of if we’re willing to do what is required to get there. Some goals are easy to reach and we don’t have to do much to make them ours. Others take more time and planning, and may require intense concentration. We may face difficult odds of success, and there may be many complications and problems to work out to get there. Sometimes when we have something in mind, after looking at how hard it is to achieve, we may talk ourselves out of trying. There are a million reasons not to move forward and reach for something more, and we can embrace them all. Maybe it’ll be harder than we thought it would be, maybe it will require more attention than we want to give, maybe we aren’t sure we can do it, or endless other excuses. Stepping into the unknown can be intimidating, and if we want to, we don’t have to change anything, and can stay exactly where we are, doing the same things for as long as we like. Nothing will change unless we change it. Despite all the reasons not to do something new and challenging, there really is only one reason to go for it – because we want to. If we want to reach beyond where we are, we can. If we want to go someplace new, we can. Our lives belong to us. We can do anything and nothing is out of reach. The whole world is there for us. There are endless possibilities. All our dreams are waiting, and we can make them ours.

If we’ve been doing the same things for a while, we may not even think about them as we go through the motions. If what we’re doing is moving us forward, closer to the goals we desire, we can continue. However, if they are simply holding us in place, we may get stuck where we are, even if it’s not where we want to be. When we’re ready, we can look at all the options available and begin moving toward what we want the most. Every goal is there for us, and we will succeed.

It takes courage to reach beyond where we are. We’ll have to step onto uncharted territory, and be willing to face new experiences and challenges. We may be unsure at first, but each step we take moves us forward a little more, and gives us greater confidence. As we move ahead, the road will become familiar, and with determination we’ll reach the goal. We are the only ones who can hold us back from what we want the most. There is enough courage and wisdom inside us already to take us to success. We can trust ourselves, and move forward with clarity and certainty that we will reach the destination. We can do anything we desire, and every dream is possible.

Today if there is something you want to do, but aren’t sure you can manage it, take a step forward. You are stronger and wiser than you imagine, and can do anything you desire. Be confident and trust yourself. Nothing can keep you from success, and all your dreams are possible.

Maybe Today

7 Jul

We always know what we want and where we want to go. When everything is in our control, we can step ahead and reach any destination with confidence. But we aren’t alone in the world, and sometimes we may get stuck because of someone else’s choices, or because the timing isn’t there for us. One of the hardest experiences we have may be when we must wait for something we really want. We have no way of reading the future, and can’t know what will happen. We want things to fall into place so we can reach success. If it’s all up to us, we can reach any goal. However, there may be times when we’ve done all we can, but still we aren’t there, and must wait. Waiting is hard and if it continues for a long time, can be maddening. It’s difficult to be patient and stand still when all we can think about is moving ahead. We have complete control over our own decisions and the things we do, but that’s where the control ends. We may be able to force some situations, but often we are powerless over what’s happening. Everyone makes their own decisions and decides on their own time frames. We can’t make them move more quickly, pay attention to what we want, or make our needs a priority. We know where we want to go, but getting there isn’t always easy. We can always give our input to others involved, and try to press what’s important to us, but in the end, we may still have to wait. We can give in to frustration and anger, or we can use the time to plan for when things change. Nothing stays the same forever, and eventually, we’ll be able to advance. Every success will always be there for us, and in time, however long that takes, we’ll reach it.

If we’ve been waiting for a long time for a specific door to open, those around us may encourage us to give up. They may tell us it’s foolish to keep waiting and we should just change direction and focus on something else. There will always be many opportunities available and we can alter our course at any time. We are the only ones who know what we really want, and if the goal is still important to us, we can hang onto it until things change. If we’ve moved on, we can let it go, and focus on something new.

Time waits for no one, and moves forward whether we’re moving with it or standing still. Waiting for something to happen so we can achieve a goal doesn’t mean we have to put our whole lives in a holding pattern. While we wait, we can focus on other destinations and continue moving forward. There are unlimited things we can accomplish, and nothing can hold us in place. We are talented and intelligent, and will find success. The whole world is there for us, and with clarity and certainty, we can reach any destination.

Today if you’ve been waiting for something you really want, and it’s still out of reach, remember how capable and wise you are. Focus on the goals that are available to you today, and move forward with confidence. Nothing can keep you from success. You are amazing and strong, and will find the way to every destination you desire.
