Instant Success

9 Jun

Everyone has dreams and goals they want to pursue and achieve. There are endless things to do and places to go, and we all have our own ideas about how we want to proceed. When we want something badly, we want it right away. We don’t want to wait, we don’t want to work hard for it, and we don’t want anyone to stand in our way. We might wish we had a magic wand that could make it happen, or our own genie ready to grant us the wish of our hearts so we could just get it and be happy. There are some things we can do quickly, but success doesn’t happen instantly. It’s not like a packet of soup that just requires water to become a meal. Most things worth having take work and time to achieve. Wishing and hoping and dreaming about how it will be once we get there won’t make anything change. The road to success will always be open but if we want to reach it we have to take the journey all the way to the end. There will likely be unforeseen complications, someone might block us, and problems may creep up, but it we’re determined and continue pushing forward we will win. Nothing is impossible if we’re willing to do what is needed to make it ours. Success is always there for us, and if we persist and don’t quit nothing can keep us from it. We are stronger and more capable than we think we are, and there isn’t anything we can’t do.

Playing the “if only” game will never help us move forward. “If only” I had a better job I would have more money and security. “If only” I was married I wouldn’t be so lonely. “If only” it wasn’t so hard I could be more successful. Life is full of possibilities, but nobody is going to pave the road ahead for us or hand us a perfect life. If we’re not happy where we are, instead of complaining and wishing something would change, we can take control and move in a new direction. We are never frozen in place unless we freeze ourselves there. Life is filled with opportunities and every option is possible.

There is no way to move forward by standing still. Watching and waiting for change to come is a fool’s game. We’re in control of our lives and can do anything at any time. We are filled with potential but potential is unrealized expectations. Instead of standing around and waiting for things to change, we can purposely and with clarity move toward the goals we want the most and reach any success we desire. It’s all there for us. We need only decide what we want, and then do what is necessary to make it ours. There is greatness inside us all, and with patience and determination, we can do anything.

Today if there’s a goal you want to achieve, think about how you want to proceed, and take the first step forward. You know what you want and have everything you need to do anything you desire. Trust yourself and push ahead. Every dream is possible and every success awaits. Be confident and you will make them yours.

The Changeup

10 May

Life is long and what we do and who we become is up to us. We can spend our time going through the motions, taking things as they come and just dealing with what life brings, or we can take control of our lives and do things on purpose to make changes we desire. Change is always possible but it isn’t always easy and can be difficult. If we’ve been in the same job for a long time and it’s not bringing us the rewards we desire or taking us where we most want to go, we can move on to something else. If we’re in a relationship that isn’t fulfilling and brings us stress and discomfort, we can step away and go in another direction. We certainly understand these concepts but actually taking the leap and doing what we must to change our situation takes courage and determination. It’s always easy to keep things the same and deal with the status quo, and there is no way to see the future or predict how our new plans will work out. Every road is possible and nothing is out of reach, and if we want something new, we must be willing to step into the unknown and outside of our comfort zones to get it. We are strong and capable, and there isn’t anything we can’t accomplish when we’re ready to move. By trusting ourselves, and believing we will succeed, we can step forward and create the lives we desire most. We deserve complete happiness. We never have to settle, and with focus and clarity, can do anything.

Customs and traditions can be very powerful, and family expectations may be strong. There may be great pressure to conform to what has been done in the past and follow someone else’s example. Our close relationships are important but we don’t need to give up what we really want to honor them. We can be respectful and polite, and still choose the paths we desire most. Our lives belong to us and we can decide how we will live them and what we’ll do. We can take a different route and make choices that will take us where we most want to go, and achieve our own personal goals.

There is no such thing as destiny and nobody has the power to tell us how to live our lives. We can do what we like and have unlimited chances to achieve whatever we desire. If our first plan doesn’t work out, it’s not a sign that we aren’t supposed to succeed. Wrong turns teach us what doesn’t work and help us adjust our course until we reach success. Every possibility is there for us and every destination awaits. We need only decide what we want, and then step forward, confident we will succeed.

Today if you want something different but have been hesitant to move, trust yourself. You know what you want, and have what you need to get it. Turn your course and take the first step toward the goal. Every dream is there for you and nothing is too hard or too complex for you to figure out. Be confident and clear. There is greatness inside you and you are wiser and more powerful than you imagine. Begin the journey now. Nothing can keep you from success and you will win.

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.

Momentum

4 Apr

Our lives are ours to design and we are in control of every decision we make. We all know this, but there may be times when we do things we don’t really want to do because of external pressures, or circumstances that affect how we proceed. Sometimes others intervene in ways that hold us in place, or situations arise that keep us from doing things exactly the way we prefer. Although we are strong and know what we want, the momentum of something out of our control might make turning in a different direction very difficult. Tradition is powerful and even if we choose to do things differently, the influence of those around us might keep us from proceeding. The patterns of family, and the routines of our relationships can be very defined and difficult to change. If we try, there may be serious push back and insistence on compliance with the norm and what is expected. We can do anything we like, but changing direction and going against the flow takes real desire and determination. We can do anything we like, but not everything will come easily. If we’re ready for a change and want to step away from where we’ve been, nothing can stop us. We just need to decide exactly what we want, and step forward. There isn’t only one way to live well. We can change anything we like and have the lives we want the most. Momentum is powerful, but we are stronger than any influence around us. Every single destination is possible, and with patience and clarity, we will reach them all.

Mediocrity and conformity are easy to achieve. We can go along with whatever is happening and simply agree with whatever is decided. Riding in the backseat will certainly take us along on the trip but if we aren’t driving, we will never go where we most want to be. If we’re comfortable doing what others are doing, we can keep our heads down for as long as we like. But our lives belong to us, and we are responsible for our own happiness. Nobody is going to make our dreams come true for us. We can take control of our own destinies, and create the lives we want the most.

It takes courage to step away from the crowd and move toward something new. Foreign territory is unknown, and it’s impossible to see the end from the beginning. We are intelligent and can certainly manage anything that comes. When we’re ready to achieve a new goal, the road will be there for us. Nothing is out of reach, and every dream is possible. By trusting ourselves and confidently moving forward, nothing can keep us from success.

Today if you’re ready to move toward your dreams, decide what you want the most and take the first step forward. Then take the next, and the next, and before long, you will have achieved the goal. You already know what you want, and have everything you need to reach anything you desire. Stand strong and be confident. The road ahead is waiting. Every dream is possible and you will make them yours.

Big Stretch

29 Mar

Life is filled with all kinds of experiences. There are endless places to go, things to see, and unlimited opportunities. The possibilities for change are constant, and no matter where we are or what’s going on, there is always the chance to try something new. If we’re in a situation where we must sit quietly for a long period of time, we may begin to feel cramped and need to get up and stretch. Reaching up and down and turning from side to side can loosen us up and make things more comfortable. In our lives, if we’ve been doing the same things for a while, we may begin to feel the same. We might feel stuck and stagnant, and want something new. We can look around at all the possibilities, and then reach for something that takes us to a new horizon and opens our vision a little wider. Although it’s easy to stay where we are, if we stretch just a little and reach for a new destination, we will learn more about ourselves and the world around us. Some roads will be easy and the journey to the goal may fly by quickly, but others may be harder, and involve complications and detours. The world is a huge place filled with possibilities and the bigger the stretch, the further we’ll go. As we move forward, our understanding will deepen and we’ll be enriched by new experiences. Our lives belong to us and we can do anything we desire. We can reach for and obtain goals far from where we are now. By trusting ourselves, and stepping forward with confidence and clarity, we will find great satisfaction and success. Nothing is out of reach, and we will prevail.

When we’ve been working hard and our muscles are tired, stretching may be uncomfortable at first. Lighting up tender areas by gently pulling them further may bring momentary discomfort but as we continue, everything will warm and become more limber. The same is true in our lives. When we first step away from routine and start on a course toward something new, we may encounter things that are complicated and unsettling. Nobody knows everything and as we face new situations, new problems will likely arise. But we are intelligent and completely capable of managing whatever comes. Every road is possible and when we’re ready, we can reach any destination we desire.

Change is constant and we are continually changing as we live and go through different experiences. What we wanted last year may be forgotten. Where we are now is what counts, and if we’re not exactly where we want to be, we can do what is needed to change direction. It takes courage to step onto a new road and head toward a new destination, but our lives belong to us and our happiness is important. We can start a new journey at any time, and move toward any goal. Everything is possible and with determination and focus, we can have the lives we want the most.

Today if you’re ready for something new, but the journey to get there looks difficult and long, trust yourself. Look ahead and reach for the goal. Stretch your thinking and determination. You are amazing and more powerful than you think you are. Nothing is out of reach. Every single destination is waiting and you already have everything you need to reach them. Be confident. There is great success ahead, waiting for you. Step forward and claim it.
