Trusting It

21 Jul

No matter where we are or what we’re doing, chances are there’s something we’re working toward or trying to accomplish. Maybe we want to change direction in our career, or find someone to share our time with, or find a way to make more money or a thousand other things. Nobody can read the future and there is no way to know how anything will eventually roll out. Most things are out of our control and the best we can do is choose options that will most likely bring us the results we’re seeking. The world is filled with billions of people and they’re all making decisions, some of which may impact us negatively. We may be moving along easily, everything may be going according to plan, and then bam, without warning something changes and our plans go up in smoke. Although this is always a possibility, if we’ve planned effectively and done everything we can to protect the way forward, we will generally be able to find our way around any snags that come up. We are intelligent and capable and can figure out what needs to be done to accomplish the goals we desire, and then trust the process to work. We may face complications and there might be a problem that creeps in from time to time, but we can find the answers we need and continue on. Learning to trust isn’t always easy, especially if we’ve suffered a calamity in the past, and we’ve all suffered calamities in the past. When things go unexpectedly wrong and knock us down it leaves a mark and we may struggle to believe things will go well in the future. But every goal is possible and nothing can keep us from success. We have everything we need to accomplish anything we desire. By doing what’s necessary to find the best options possible, we can proceed with confidence that no matter what happens things will work out. The world isn’t going to end because one thing goes wrong or we hit a bump in the road. The destination will still be there for us, and we will reach it.

Some things are easier to accomplish than others. They say if you’re going to dream, you should dream big. Common goals that have paved roads leading to them are simple to overcome, but if we want something more, we have all the intelligence and wisdom needed to find a way to accomplish it. Our most treasured dreams, the things we think about and wish for, are possible if we’re willing to do what is required to make them ours. We can shoot for the moon, and gain the sun and stars as well. Everything is there for us and we can have the lives we desire most.

Self doubt can be crippling if we let it control our decisions. Nobody is perfect and we all make mistakes, but no matter how far we fall, there will always be a way back up. We know what we want and can trust ourselves to get it. Every single destination is achievable and with focus and determination, nothing can keep us from what we want. We are stronger and more powerful than we think we are, and can do anything. By stepping forward with clarity and confidence, sure of success, we will conquer every dream and reach every goal. Our lives are ours to design. Everything is possible, and nothing can keep us from success.

Today if you want to do something but are thinking about when things went wrong in the past, trust yourself. The past never determines your future. Every single dream is there for you and you have everything you need to get the life you want. Stand strong and move forward. You are amazing and capable, and nothing, absolutely nothing is too hard or too far away for you to reach. Your dreams are waiting. Step forward and claim them.

Inertia

9 Jul

Inertia – A tendency to do nothing or to remain unchanged. (Dictionary.com)

Change is a constant in life. The only thing we can count on is that no matter what is going on now, it will eventually change into something else. Nothing is permanent and there is no way to know what will happen next. Although this is an undeniable fact, we are in control of our lives. If we are determined to keep things the same, we can stand still, and remain where we are, repeating the same things over and over. The situations around us will undoubtedly move on and there will be alterations in our environment, but we can stand still for as long as we like. Staying in the same place and repeating the same patterns can be comforting, but sameness and inertia will never take us to the destinations we dream about. It’s impossible to accomplish the goals we most desire and get the lives we want by doing nothing. Standing still may be familiar, but it will not bring us the richness and depth that trying something new will afford. Our lives are ours to design, and if we’re unhappy or dissatisfied, staying in the same place won’t improve the situation. If we want something different, or something more, we must exert effort. Nothing will magically change and our lives won’t improve simply because we desire it. Everything is possible and every dream we imagine can be reached, but it’s up to us to make it happen. There isn’t anything we can’t accomplish if we’re willing to do what is necessary to make it ours. We can wait as long as we want, stand still until the cows come home, but until we step forward, and pursue what we desire most, nothing will change. We have all the wisdom and courage necessary to do whatever we desire. All we need to do is step forward, and begin.

Everyone has dreams about the life they want, goals they want to reach, and places they want to go. Thinking about them and planning for them is the first step in reaching success, but until we take action, nothing will change. Everything we do has a result. Each action brings something new. We don’t have to completely upend our lives and change everything all at once to get where we want to go. We can begin with one small step forward, and then take another. As we continue to move ahead, the goal will become clear and we will reach success.

Change can be intimidating, but there is no way to move from where we are to where we want to be without it. We may need to step into foreign territory and travel unknown paths, but we are strong and have all the courage required to accomplish anything. We can trust ourselves to find the right roads ahead, and believe in our ability to succeed. The lives we dream of are possible, and with faith and determination, we can make them ours.

Today if you want something more, make a plan to begin moving forward. There isn’t anything you can’t accomplish and every dream is possible. Decide what you want most, and then take the first step toward the goal. You are amazing and powerful, and nothing is too difficult or too far away. Trust yourself and be confident. All your dreams are waiting, and you will make them yours.

Endless

1 Jul

Our lives belong to us. When we’re young and in the care of our families, we are taught many different ideas about how things should go, what we should do, and how life operates. We may retain some of those ideas, and others we’ll change in favor of other options. Everyone has their own interpretations about how things should go and what is best. We can listen to every suggestion and then decide what we want. Getting the life we desire most is always possible, but it won’t just appear one day out of the blue. We must look at all the options for achieving it, make a plan and then work continually to make it ours. Life is unpredictable and once we begin, there will likely be problems that come up and complications that stand in our way. We might have to let our plans go for a time because of uncontrollable circumstances we can’t get around. Things may go awry, and we might take a wrong turn or fall down. If things get so complex we can’t move, or we have failed again and again to move forward, we may think our chance of success isn’t possible. It doesn’t matter how many times we get stopped, or how often the road ends before we reach the goal. There are endless chances to start again. We will never reach the last possible option. Change is constant, and what was blocked last year may be wide open and welcoming now. The only way to fail is to quit trying. If we continue on and try again, we will reach success. The road we’re on may get blocked, our current plans may not work, and we might have to turn around and regroup. But every success is possible and nothing can keep us from accomplishing anything we desire. There will always be another road, another choice and another chance for success. All we have to do is keep going. We are stronger and wiser than we think we are, and nothing can hold us in place. We can be sure and confident, and move forward until we reach the destination.

There are lots of people who continually come and go in and out of our lives. If we build close associations and friendships, we may share our dreams and goals with them. Some may be supportive and encouraging, and others may not. Some people are averse to change and may tell us the ideas we have are unwise, or unreachable. Perhaps they are comfortable with our relationship the way it is, and worry that if we move ahead with our plans, they may be left behind. The insecurities and doubts of others belong to them and have no bearing on our decisions. We can choose our way forward, and pursue anything we desire.

Some goals are hard to reach and involve a lot of work and effort. If we’ve been pushing forward for a long time and still the goal is far in the distance, we may tire and begin to believe it’s unreachable. We can achieve anything but we can’t achieve everything today. We can set the goal aside for now, and focus on something else until our situation changes. The destination will still be there, and when we’re ready to move forward again, we will reach it.

Today if you’ve stumbled again, and think the goal you desire is unattainable, trust yourself. You have already accomplished many things, and you will succeed again. Look at the road ahead and decide how you want to proceed. Plan your next move and step forward. Every single dream is waiting, and you will make them all yours.

Too Late

29 Jun

Life is full of experiences, challenges, decisions, and endless change. We are in control and can design our lives any way we like, but in order to get the lives we want, we have to purposely choose the roads we’ll travel and what we’ll do. It takes effort and focus to choose the roads we most desire, and there might be times when we get caught up in routine and simply continue on without any thought or concern about where we’ll end up. It’s easy to let monotony and sameness rule our decisions and we might find ourselves coasting along year after year without any plan. As time passes, it’s easy to continue in the same patterns and we may discover one day, to our amazement, that serious time has elapsed and we still haven’t achieved the goals we want. If we’ve settled into doing the same things for a long time, we might think it’s too late to change. We’ve missed the window of opportunity and now, like it or not, we’re stuck and cannot move. We might believe life has passed us by and we can no longer think about achieving the goals we set aside so long ago. Nothing can stop time from passing, but the passage of time does not determine what we can achieve. No matter where we are, how old we are, how long we’ve been in the same place or doing the same things, change is possible. There will never be a time when all doors will be closed and we are unable to move. The chance for success will always be there for us, and if we want something different, we can do what is necessary to get it. We will never be frozen in place. Every opportunity will still be there and when we’re ready to move, we can reach it. All our dreams are waiting, and with determination and focus, we can make them ours.

Some people have ideas about what is appropriate at certain ages in life. If they are used to seeing us in a certain way doing specific things and we’ve decided to change our situation, they may not approve. They may question why we want to upset the apple cart when everything is going fine. Why do we have to change what works for them? Our lives belong solely to us and we don’t need approval or permission to do anything we desire. If we want something different, we can have it. We never have to stand in place if we’re ready to move. It’s all up to us. We can achieve our greatest goals, and find complete happiness.

Every new experience teaches us something, and helps us decide how we want to proceed. What was important to us last year may mean nothing now. We learn as we go, and change is constant. As we gain more information our desires clarify, and as we move forward, we decide how we’ll proceed. There is no such thing as fate. We decide what we’ll do, where we’ll go, and what our future will be. We are intelligent and wise, and have everything we need to achieve anything we desire.

Today if you want something new but aren’t sure, remember you are in control of your life. It is never too late, and nothing can keep you from anything you desire. Decide what you want the most and make a plan to move forward. Every dream is still there for you. Be confident and focused, and nothing can keep you from success.

Digging In

3 Jun

Everyday we face new challenges and make choices about how we’ll proceed. Life is filled with all kinds of experiences, and since we don’t live on a deserted island, there will be others around who may influence us one way or another. We may get all kinds of advice and suggestions, which may be helpful or might be misleading. If someone near us is very powerful and strong willed, they may demand that we follow their suggestions for moving forward. Some people are very smart and confident and may be sure they are steering us in the best direction, and maybe they’re right. Of course, we can listen to any advice we’re given, but nobody knows us better than we know ourselves. Nobody will have our personal insight regarding what we want and how we want to proceed. Taking someone else’s suggestion might be great, or it might not. There will be no way to find out unless we implement whatever they have suggested and try it out. If we follow someone else’s lead, and things go well, terrific. If everything goes bust and we end up in a terrible situation, we may be tempted to blame them for our demise, but we own every decision we make. We choose the roads we’ll travel. We own them whether they bring us happiness or misery. Everyone has their own ideas about life, and each is unique and individual. We know what we want and have everything we need to go anywhere and do anything. We can trust ourselves to choose the best road ahead and find our way to success. If we need more information, we can find it and then step forward on our own path. Others may disagree and criticize our choice, but the choice is ours to make. We can dig in and stand firm on what we want to do and how we will proceed. There is enough courage and wisdom inside us to guide us anywhere we want to go. Success is always there, and we will reach it.

Nobody knows everything. We can only get information that’s available at any moment in time and sometimes we may take a wrong turn because there were facts we were unaware of. We can only see what’s just ahead and there may be twists and turns in the future that hold us back or stop us in our tracks. If the road gets tangled, and we can’t push forward, we can choose another route. There are endless roads to every destination, and with persistence and patience, we will prevail.

Someone may think they know us better than we know ourselves, and if they aren’t in agreement with our plans, may try to dissuade us or obstruct the way forward. They may know us well, but nobody can possibly know what we want better than we do. The road ahead may be difficult, but we are strong. It may be complex, but we are intelligent. Nothing can keep us from any goal we desire, and we will succeed.

Today if you’re getting lots of advice regarding a specific goal, trust yourself. Decide how you want to proceed, and step forward. You are wiser and more powerful than you imagine, and every destination is there for you. Success is waiting, and with focus and clarity, nothing will keep you from it. Every dream is possible, and you will prevail.
