Because

7 May

Life is filled with opportunities and possibilities. There are endless things we can do and unlimited places to go. The earth is huge and even if we traveled every day of our lives, we’d never see it all. The same is true of the opportunities available. There will always be more options possible than we can take advantage of. We can do anything we want but sometimes we stay where we are and continue in a situation that isn’t fulfilling for a lot of reasons. We don’t know how things will go, how hard it will be to get there, how long it will take, and we may be afraid we’ll fail. There will always be many reasons not to do the things we want the most, but they are just complications and we can manage them as they come. The only reason to change our lives and step forward toward the dreams we desire, is because we want them. That’s all we need. We only need to desire the change more than we’re afraid of what it will take to get it. We can think about what we want, dream about how it would be if we achieved it, and make plans until the cows come home, but until we start, they will elude us. Every dream is possible, and the road ahead is already there for us. When we’re ready to move, we can step forward and move closer to the goal. After that, we can step forward again. Our dreams only seem out of reach until we begin to make them ours. One step will lead us to the next, and if we continue, in time, we’ll reach the goal. Our lives belong to us and we can design them any way we like. If we want a change, we must be willing to step into the unknown, and trust ourselves to succeed. Foreign territory can be intimidating, but it’s only foreign until we make it ours. The first step is often the hardest, but once we break the mold, each step will be easier. Every single destination, every single dream is there for us. We can have the lives we want the most. We just need to begin.

Some people are very comfortable with routine. They like things to stay the same and don’t appreciate it when others rock the boat. If we have a relationship with them and share our ideas about a change we’re considering, they may try to talk us out of it. They may tell us it’s not a good idea, it will be too hard, we should be happy with what we have or a thousand other reasons. We can listen to any advice they offer, but nobody knows what we want more than we do. We already have everything we need to prevail, and nothing can hold us back from success.

Mediocrity is easy to achieve. We can coast through our lives and wait for things to improve on their own to a situation we desire. Waiting for life to make our dreams reality is like waiting for the sun to shine at night. It’s not going to happen. Everything is possible, but we must do what is needed to make it ours. Change is constant, and nothing is out of reach. By choosing the roads that take us to the destinations we desire, we will find great satisfaction and happiness.

Today if you’ve been waiting and wishing for your dreams to come true, create a plan to make them yours, and step forward to claim them. Every single possibility is there for you. You are amazing and powerful, and will reach every success you desire.

Two Roads

29 Apr

The world is filled with opportunities and possibilities. There will be few times when we have only one possible way forward, and often there will be several options and roads we could choose, and many different prospects ahead. We’re in control of our lives and can design them any way we desire, but where we go depends on the choices we make. Every decision will take us somewhere and change something, and if we’re not paying attention or don’t look before we jump, we might end up somewhere we never intended to go. When we’re standing at the crossroads between going one way or another, the direction we choose will decide what comes next. Two roads may look the same, and we may not be able to see beyond the first curve. There may be no obvious difference at first, but they may end up at entirely different destinations. So how do we choose? There is no way to read the future, but by learning everything we can about the choices available, we can trust ourselves to make the best decision. We can step forward on the road that will lead us to the destinations we want most, and then continue forward until we reach the goal. Life is complicated and there will always be unforeseen developments that may slow our progress, problems may arise that stop us for a time, and we may need to take a detour or two. But if we’re determined to continue forward, nothing can keep us from success. When two roads lie before us, and we must choose, we can take our time, and decide what we want most. We are capable of making excellent decisions and can choose the direction that takes us to the future we desire. Every single possibility is already there for us and nothing can keep us from reaching any destination. By trusting ourselves, and stepping forward with confidence, we can make our dreams come true.

Our lives are often busy. It’s easy to get caught up in routine responsibilities and set our personal goals aside. We may think we’ll get to them when things slow down, but life is complex, and there are few times when everything falls into place perfectly. Our personal dreams are important, and when we’re ready, no matter what’s going on around us, we can begin toward them. The life we want the most won’t just happen because we desire it. We must create it. Every possibility is there for us, but we must decide to step forward and claim it.

Indecision and procrastination are powerful and can hold us in place indefinitely. If we simply think about what we want instead of making a decision and stepping forward, we’ll go nowhere. If we continually put off choosing something, time will pass, and nothing will change. We can have the lives we want, but we must create them. We can be confident, choose the roads we desire most, and then move toward success.

Today if you’re trying to decide which way to go, trust yourself. You know what you want and have everything necessary to succeed. Look at all the possibilities before you and choose the road that will take you where you want to go. Everything is possible and nothing is too far or too difficult to reach. Step forward with confidence. Nothing can keep you from success and all your dreams can come true.

Going Solo

26 Apr

Life is full of opportunities and we can do anything we like. Our lives are ours to design and every goal is possible. We are in control of our decisions and can make them in ways that take us closer to the destinations we most desire. There will always be others around us, and if we share our vision with them and explain what we want to accomplish, they may cheer us on, or they may disagree and try to dissuade from our dreams. Everyone has their own opinions about how things should go, and we’re all entitled to choose any path we like. We can listen to any suggestions or advice, and then do exactly as we please. We never need agreement or permission to create any scenario we desire. After all, our personal journey is for us, and nobody else. We aren’t here to pave the way for anyone else’s dreams, and we never need to hold ours back because others don’t like it or don’t think we should proceed. We know what we want and although support and agreement is nice, we don’t need it to succeed. We can go solo and chart our own course to every destination we seek. The whole world is there for us, and every conceivable plan is possible. We need only decide what we want and begin forward. We can do what is necessary to achieve complete happiness, even if we must do it alone. We’re born alone and we’ll certainly die alone, but in between there will be others around us. Their influence may be great, and we may value their experience and wisdom. They may want us to do as they ask or go along with them, but we don’t have to follow their lead. We are entitled to our own dreams and desires and have everything we need to make them ours. We can trust ourselves to create the lives we want the most and find great happiness and satisfaction.

It’s great to build good, strong relationships with those around us. Having family and a network of friends can embellish and enrich our lives. We may enjoy spending time with them, sharing activities, and learning new things. They may invite us to do many things, or want us to emulate their decisions, but we never have to do anything we don’t want just because we have a connection. If they want us to go somewhere we’re not interested in, or do something that isn’t right for us, we may politely decline. Having a relationship doesn’t mean we must be the same.

Our journey is ours to determine. We are unique and individual, and there never has been, nor will there ever be anyone exactly like us. The roads we choose to travel are ours to choose, and we may go anywhere and do anything. By embracing our own desires, and appreciating our specific gifts and talents, we can find great pleasure and joy each day. Every success is there for us, and we can reach them all.

Today if you’re being pressured to change your plans and go in a different direction, choose the road that will take where you most want to go. You never have to go along to get along. Be confident and chart your own course. Nobody knows you better than you know yourself. Step forward on the journey you desire and proceed toward the goal. Nothing is out of reach, and you will succeed.

Making It Rock

16 Apr

Life is complex and since we don’t live in a vacuum there will likely be other people around us much of the time. When we’re closely connected to someone else, they may have suggestions about how they think we should live our lives and what we should be doing. It’s easier to nod and agree than to set out on our own, and in an effort to keep things even, we may simply go along. When we’re in a group and everyone is doing the same things, there may be pressure to conform. Following along may keep the peace, but it’s impossible to reach our own destinations by riding in the back seat. Most people feel comfortable when those around them are on the same page and doing the same things. It’s easy to fit in when you look like everyone else. Floating along downstream may be scenic and comfortable but sitting in someone else’s boat won’t take us where we want to go. The destinations we desire can only be reached if we step out on our own and begin toward them. Getting out of a boat is going to make it rock, and some may be unhappy because we’re upsetting the balance. “Why can’t you just sit still and go along” they may ask. Well, we could, but our lives are important, and all our dreams are waiting. When we’re ready to reach them, we can step away from the tide and set out on our own. Support from those close to us would be nice, but we don’t need it to design the way forward. We know what we want, and already possess everything we need to get it. By choosing what’s most important to us and moving toward the goals we most desire, we will gain great happiness and satisfaction. Every single dream is possible, and with conviction and determination, we will make them ours.

Blue is a beautiful color. It’s the color of the water and sky, and it’s pleasing to see. It’s lovely, but if everything we wore and everything we owned was blue, it would become tiresome and boring. Colors are enhanced when they’re accented by their opposites or those next to them on the spectrum. Differences bring depth and interest, and enrich our experiences. We never have to go along with all the “blues” if we want to be something else. Every color and every choice are possible, and we can paint our lives any way we desire.

Life is unpredictable and we never know what will happen next, but we can plan our way forward, moving toward the goals we most desire. Complications will likely come, problems may arise, and the road may get twisted and turned around, but we are intelligent and can find our way forward. Broken pavement doesn’t mean a final stop. We can step around what’s in the way and continue toward the goal. Every destination is possible, and we have all the wisdom and courage we need to reach them all.

Today think about what you want the most, and then take the first step toward the goal. You are amazing and your life is important. Every dream is possible, and you are powerful enough to make them yours. Decide what you want and begin toward the goal. Nothing is out of reach, every dream is waiting, and you have everything you need to succeed. Trust yourself and be confident. The whole world is there for you.

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.
