Nirvana

29 Dec

Our lives are ours to design and we can do anything we like. Every option we desire is possible but the things we want won’t suddenly appear or fall into our laps while we sit and dream. Although we may wish for them, magic genies who can grant our wishes will never be real. We can have every single dream we imagine but making them come true is up to us. There might be a fairy godmother somewhere but it’s unlikely she’s going to appear any time soon. Instead of wishing and hoping that our lives would change into our fondest desires and dreams, we can objectively look at what it will take to make it happen, and then set forth to accomplish the task. Some things take a lot of work and will require a lot of time, but everything worth having is worth working for. By deciding what we want the most, and then doing what is necessary to make it ours, we can create the life we dream about. We can create our own Nirvana and find complete happiness and satisfaction. Or we can sit around and dream about what our lives could be like and do nothing. Complaining because we aren’t where we want to be, or shrinking back because we lack the confidence we need to get there won’t move us forward. What we do is our choice and responsibility. We don’t have to know everything, or have all the tools we need before we start the journey. Taking a step forward will give us more information to move ahead, and the confidence to take another. Step by step, staying focused on the goal, we’ll move forward until we reach it. Every dream is possible, and nothing is too difficult for us to accomplish. We can plan effectively, and then stay on course until we find success. The lives we desire most are waiting for us, and with determination we will make them ours.

A road that has been well-traveled is much easier to navigate than one we have to cut ourselves as we push forward. We can always do what everyone else is doing and settle for what’s common and easy. But if we want our own dreams to come true and have lives filled with rich experiences and success, we’ll have to reach further than what’s easy. We can reach beyond where we are and strive for more. By moving toward the dreams we really want, we can reach every goal and find true happiness and satisfaction.

If we don’t take control of our lives and push toward the goals and dreams we really want, time will roll on and we’ll simply go where life takes us. It’s impossible to go where we want to go if someone else is driving the train. Instead of coasting along, we can proactively take charge of our decisions and move toward the goals we want the most. We are intelligent and strong, and nothing can keep us from any destination. Every dream is possible, and we can make them ours.

Today if you’ve been kicking back and letting things just roll out as they will, remember your dreams are important. You know what you want, and already possess everything you need to make it yours. Take charge of your destiny and move toward your goals. Nothing can keep you from anything you desire. You are amazing and powerful, and you will prevail.

Information Please

10 Dec

We’re all unique and our perceptions vary depending on the life experiences we’ve had. We might all live in the same place, and speak the same language, but that doesn’t mean we really understand each other. It’s possible to misinterpret what others are saying, or frankly have no idea what they mean even though they are speaking clearly and using words we understand. Misunderstandings happen but the problem is we don’t know what we don’t know. When interacting with someone else we may agree to do something we are sure they are requesting, and end up going a completely different direction than they asked for. How is this possible? We all have our own paradigms and viewpoints. What is obvious to one, may be completely invisible to another. That doesn’t mean anyone is stupid or wrong, it just means we’re looking at the situation through a different window. There are endless ideas and interpretations of every situation. We can always just plow ahead and hope somehow, we’ll get it right, or we could stop before we start, and ask for clarification. Asking for more information isn’t weakness, it’s wisdom. It’s hard to see through fog, and if we aren’t clear of the expectations, instead of bumbling forward, we can ask for more information until we’re sure what’s expected. Once we know where we’re headed and what the goal is, we can proceed, confident we’ll reach it and achieve success. Life is filled with challenges and trying to find our way in the dark will only make the journey longer and harder than it needs to be. We can pave the road ahead by getting all the facts before we start and ensuring we understand the objective. We are intelligent and capable and can accomplish anything we set out to do. Every goal is possible and with clarity and focus, we can reach any destination.

If we’re concerned about the opinions of others, and want to appear smart and capable, we might rush to accomplish a goal without getting all the information we need beforehand. Looking good is one thing. Being successful is another. It does no good to look confident and capable, and then fail at the task because we didn’t ask for help. The destination is the goal, not how we look accomplishing it. By getting all the facts before we begin, we can make all our dreams and goals reality.

Everyone gets lost from time to time. Losing our way or going in the wrong direction doesn’t mean we’ve failed. Taking the wrong road gives us more information and teaches us what doesn’t work. We can use that information moving forward to find the best road to the destination we seek. Nothing is complex enough to keep us from our goals. We are intelligent and can achieve anything we desire.

Today if you’re struggling to figure out which way to proceed, get all the information you can and look at all the possibilities. Every option is there for you, and you will find the right way forward. You have already accomplished so much. Nothing is too difficult for you to manage. Be confident. Success is waiting, and nothing can keep you from reaching it. Step forward and proceed. You will prevail.

Paving the Road

10 Nov

Every day we make lots of decisions about what we’re doing, where we’re going, and how we want to proceed. Sometimes, we can see where the decision will take us, and we move forward confident we’ll end up with the results we seek. Every road has a destination, and with careful thought and planning, we can get where we want to go. But not everything is obvious at the start, and we may be sure we’re headed on the right road while going in the opposite direction. All our goals are possible but everything we do either helps pave the road ahead or creates obstacles that get in the way. Which way things will go depends on the decisions we make with each step. Nobody wants to complicate their lives on purpose or tries to create more problems moving forward. Even though we may try to make the best decisions possible, we might still get hung up and stopped. We have no control over what others are doing or what will happen. The only thing we can control is what we do, and it’s possible that even if we’ve planned well, and tried to be ready for every conceivable eventually, something unexpected may happen that keeps us from success. If we do all we can to pave the road ahead and prepare in advance, no matter what comes, we’ll find the way through. Nothing is powerful enough to keep us from success. It might be delayed as we navigate through complications, but we will prevail. Life is filled with surprises and we may be pushed off course. But there are endless roads to every single destination, and we are smart enough and courageous enough to find the way forward. We may not reach it today, and tomorrow may be difficult, but with persistence and confidence, we will reach the goal. We have everything we need to do anything we desire. Each step forward gets us closer, and we will win.

There are endless choices before us with each decision we make. What we decide will either help us move forward or hold us in place. If we’re careless or rush before we get all the facts, we may choose things that create roadblocks and detours on the road ahead. We may spend countless hours trying to move around avoidable issues and problems. By taking the time we need to see everything before we jump, the journey will be easier, and we will reach the destination.

Everyone has their own opinions about life and what we should do. Before we begin toward a goal, we may get lots of advice about moving forward. We can certainly heed any suggestion or guidance we’re given, but nobody knows us better than we know ourselves. We already know what we want and where we want to go, and have all the wisdom and intelligence we need to get there. Every dream is possible, and with determination and faith, we can accomplish anything.

Today if the road ahead is convoluted and complex, remember how wise and capable you are. There isn’t anything you can’t manage. Make decisions that will pave the way to success, and step forward with confidence. You are amazing and powerful. Every destination is already there for you. Move ahead sure of success, and you’ll reach it.

Return Trip

Life is full of twists and turns. We may be traveling along one way when something happens that stops us and turns us around facing the opposite direction. If we have no control over the situation, we may have to backtrack for a while until things change in ways that allow us to redirect our course forward. We are always in control of our lives but have no control over what other people are doing or how things roll out. Even our best laid plans may turn upside down without warning, and the goal we were seeking may suddenly be out of reach for a time. Nothing is permanent and eventually, things will change. How and when that will happen is impossible to predict, but we’ll be able to resume our journey at some point. The return trip back to where we were may be easy and quick, or it may take a lot of work and time to restore. There are unlimited roads to every destination and no matter what’s happened, or how long we’ve had to wait, we can discover the best way ahead. Complications may come, problems may thwart our progress, and roadblocks may get in the way. But we know what we want, and if we’re willing to push ahead despite the trouble, can reach any goal we desire. Things may go wrong, they may go very wrong, and we may question our ability to continue. Nobody gets a clear, paved road all the time. It doesn’t matter how far we’re pushed off track, it doesn’t matter if we’ve been away for a long time, and it doesn’t matter if nobody else thinks we can do it. We are more powerful and strong than we imagine, and nothing, absolutely nothing can keep us from our goals. A return trip back to where we want to be will always be possible. Our lives are ours to design. We can be confident that every destination is there for us, and with patience and determination, we will succeed.

We may be involved in a relationship where someone wants us to change who we are. If we lack confidence and care deeply for them, we may acquiesce and try to mold ourselves into their desired model. It’s impossible to find complete happiness if we’re trying to be something we’re not. Our personal happiness is important, and we can return to our true selves. We are priceless and individual, and the whole world is embellished because we are here.

Our lives are busy and can be complicated, and we might look up one day and discover we’re on a road headed somewhere we never wanted to go. Maybe we got caught up following someone else or got distracted and stepped away from what we want most. If we’re going the wrong way, we can stop, turn around, and start again. Every goal we desire is possible, and if we focus on the way forward, nothing can keep us from success.

Today if you’ve gotten stopped or turned around, and are headed away from the destinations you desire, trust yourself. You have everything you need to find your way forward. Every single dream is possible, and nothing can keep you from them. Be confident and step forward. You are amazing and powerful. Success is just ahead, and you will reach it.

Doomed

16 Sep

Life is filled with challenges and opportunities to learn through many different trials and difficulties. Nobody lives in nirvana, and we’ll all have times when we must face difficult situations that try us and push us to our limits. Many times, we’ll navigate them well and everything will resolve in ways that help us move forward. But we aren’t perfect, and we may get tangled up and make decisions that don’t work out for us, or take us down the wrong road. Mistakes are normal. We can’t know everything and there will be times when we’ll stumble and fall. Failure teaches us what doesn’t work, and helps us understand how to change direction and find the answers needed to reach success. Making a big mistake doesn’t mean we’re doomed to persistent and unmitigated failure moving forward. We aren’t stained for life and we don’t carry every mistake with us moving ahead. If we’ve made a bad choice, we can simply turn around and choose again. Our past will never determine our future. Everyone fails at some point. It’s inevitable. If we fall down, we can get back up and start again. There are unlimited possibilities and endless chances for success. No matter where we’ve been or what’s happened, each new day brings the opportunity to move in a new direction and reach our goals. If we’re not happy where we are, we can move. We never have to stay in any situation we don’t want, and can redirect our focus toward the things we desire most. Our lives are ours to design. Nothing is powerful enough to keep us from the destinations we desire most. If we stumble, and the road is uncertain, we can do what is needed to steady the way forward. Every possibility is there for us and the options available are unlimited. We can be confident and sure as we step forward that we will prevail and reach success.

We build different kinds of relationships with others each day. Some connections are positive and help us move ahead. Others may pull on us and hold us in place. If we’re deeply engaged with someone who prevents us from moving ahead, we may get stuck and unable to move. We are always in control of everything we do, and can change anything we desire. If a connection isn’t working, we can step back, look at all the options available, and go in another direction. We can do anything, and every success is possible.

Each experience teaches us something new to carry forward with us. If we must suffer through a difficult time filled with duress and strife, we will gain strength and deeper understanding as we find our way through. If we’ve made a bad decision, we can learn everything possible as we navigate the issue and find resolution. Learning all we can from each situation will enable us to acquire tools to help us in the future. We are smart and capable, and nothing can keep us from our goals.

Today if you’ve fallen down and made a mistake that is holding you back, decide how you want to proceed and step forward with confidence. Every destination is still there for you, and nothing can hold you in place. Be wise and confident, and step forward toward your goals. All your dreams are possible, and you will make them yours.
