Someone Else

19 Oct

Everyone is unique and we are all different in our own ways. We have our own dreams and desires, and our own opinions about how things should go and what should happen. If we’re confident and self-directed, we will make whatever plans we want and move toward the goals we want to achieve. By keeping our eyes on the road ahead, chances are we’ll accomplish much. But not everyone is sure about what they want or where they’re going. If we don’t know how we want to proceed, and see someone who seems to have everything together, we may decide to follow them. We may emulate the things they do, learn to talk like them and even dress like them in an attempt to feel connected and moving forward. It’s helpful to watch successful people and learn about how they get things done, but that doesn’t mean we need to be just like them in order to succeed as well. We all have specific and individual gifts to offer. Trying to be someone else will never bring us complete satisfaction or true success. We don’t have to be a carbon copy of anyone in order to reach our goals. We already have everything we need to prevail, and by trusting ourselves and choosing our own paths, we can reach any destination we desire. Every answer we need is there for us, and with clarity and confidence nothing is out of reach.

We are constantly bombarded with advertisements that tell us if we do one thing or another, act a certain way, dress like them, or buy what they are selling, we will find great success and happiness. The people in the ads are always beautiful and happy, and the promise is that if we do whatever it is they’re touting we’ll be beautiful and happy too. There is no one perfect way to live life, and endless roads to every destination. We know who we are and what we want to bring the success and happiness we desire. By choosing our own road and doing things our own way, we will reach every success.

Some people think they have all the answers. If they are loud or powerful, they may try to convince us to do what they say. We can do anything we like, but nobody knows us better than we know ourselves. We can be exactly who we are and move forward sure of success. There are endless roads ahead, and with determination and patience, we will find the one that works best for us, and proceed until we reach the goal.

Today if you’ve been copying someone else trying to reach success, remember there is greatness in you. You are amazing and highly capable. Make your own plans and trust yourself. Step forward toward the goal with confidence. Every single destination is waiting for you, and by keeping your eyes focused ahead, you will achieve great success.

Wide Open

26 Jul

We make millions of decisions as we go through our lives, and each choice brings a result and a change of some sort. We’re in control of every decision and can do anything we like, go anywhere we want, and set any goal we desire. If we’ve been in the same situation for a long time, we may forget there are endless options waiting we can choose at any time. If we don’t like where we are we can certainly move to someplace more appealing. But routines and repetitious patterns are powerful and we may reach a point where we believe we cannot move. If we’ve been in a dysfunctional relationship for a long time and want something more, we can step back and move on. If we’re in a job that isn’t meeting our desires, is unfulfilling and doesn’t give us the growth we want, we don’t have to remain. We may think we can’t change and that our future will only be a continuation of our present, but that will only happen if we choose it. There is now, and always will be, the possibility of doing something different. There are endless choices available every single moment. We are the only people on the whole planet powerful enough to hold us in place. Our futures are never determined by our past or our present. Everything is possible, wide open and waiting. We need only decide what we want to do. It’s easy to stay in place even if we’re not happy. We know the players and pretty much what will happen, and stepping out into something new can be intimidating. But our happiness is important and if we want something more or something different, we can have it. Our lives belong solely to us and we may design them any way we like. Nothing is out of reach and everything is possible.

Nobody is perfect and at some point, we may make a big mistake. We may make a mistake so big and far reaching, we believe it will change our lives and hold us down forever. If we make a wrong turn and upend our lives with turmoil and trouble, it will be difficult to navigate. But nothing lasts forever. No matter what’s happened or what we’ve done, everything will eventually settle again. There is no mistake bad enough to define our futures. Whatever has been broken can be amended. We have all the intelligence and wisdom necessary to understand what is needed to get through any situation that arises. Nothing is permanent but death, and if we’re still breathing, we can design the road ahead. By being courageous and trusting ourselves, we can correct our course, and start again.

There may be great expectations from family or associates about what we will do as we move forward. They may have plans and designs for our future that have nothing to do with what we want. Maybe there is a powerful tradition involved, or maybe there are family assumptions about following a certain path. We can do anything we like, but our future belongs to us. We never have to take any road we don’t want, no matter what others think. We have specific gifts to offer nobody else possesses, and be being true to who we are and what we want, we will bring great light and promise to the world.

Today if you think your future has been decided by what has already happened, think again. You are in control of your life and nothing can hold you down. Decide what you want the most and then take the first step toward it. Every possibility is there for you and nothing is too far or too difficult to reach. Trust yourself and be confident. You have so much to offer and will bring great light to us all. Move forward and be sure of success. It’s already there waiting and you will reach it.

Permanent

18 Jul

When we’re young, we have ideas about how we want our lives to go. We may make big plans about what we’re going to do – we’re going to be astronauts, or race car drivers, or ballerinas or a million other choices. If we hold onto the same dream as time passes, and work out what we need to do to reach it, we can do just about anything. But time has a way of changing how we think, and modifying what we want. We learn more about how things work and what we can expect, and make choices about the type of lifestyle and work life we desire most. If we’re lucky, and everything falls into place as expected, we may reach our fondest dreams exactly when and how we want them, but this is real life and there’s a lot going on we can’t control. Complications will always arise and sometimes the road will turn without warning. One thing leads to another and we may find the careers we end up with, the places we’re living, and the things we’re doing aren’t what we originally planned on. If we’re happy where we are, great, but nothing is permanent, and if we still yearn for something different we can move toward it. Time is powerful. If we’ve been in a situation that is unfulfilling and unrewarding for a long time, we may believe it would be too difficult to try to change it and just decide to suck it up and deal with it. Of course we can do anything we like, but there isn’t anything that can’t be changed if we’re willing to do what is necessary to change it. It may not be easy, and may be uncomfortable while we work on the transition, but every dream is possible. We can move locations, change careers, let go of relationships that aren’t working, and modify anything that isn’t making us happy. We’re in control and it’s all up to us. By deciding what we want the most and then doing what is needed to make it ours we can achieve complete happiness and satisfaction. Nothing is out of reach and we are smart enough, and strong enough to reach success.

Relationships are important and when they work well they add great benefit and blessing to us. It’s wonderful to share our lives with someone who likes us, enjoys spending time with us, and wants the best for us. If we’re in a relationship that is difficult and brings continual duress and stress, it will be impossible to be happy. We might learn how to deal with the ups and downs, and how to manage the arguments and problems, but expending energy just to get through on a continual basis will wear on us and prevent us from finding true happiness and peace. We deserve complete happiness and never have to stay in any situation that doesn’t work for us. We can change anything at any time, and have the lives we dream of.

If we’re working, our careers may be very important to us. If we’re doing something we enjoy, work is easy, but that isn’t always the case. The dream jobs we want aren’t always available to us and we may end up doing something we didn’t plan on because of opportunity, income or a thousand other reasons. Once we’ve been in the job for a while and become established, it may seem that although we aren’t happy, trying to change would be too difficult. Change isn’t always easy but if there is something we really want, we have everything we need to get it. Routines are comfortable and it’s easy to keep doing the same things again and again, but nothing is permanent. We can modify anything at any time. Every option is possible and with wisdom and clarity, we can create the lives we want the most.

Today if you’re not satisfied with something in your life but have been reluctant to change it, think about what you want the most. You are amazing and far more capable than you imagine. Every dream is possible if you’re willing to do what is needed to make it yours. Decide how you want to proceed, and take a step forward. Nothing is too difficult for you or too far away. Be confident and stand strong. There is great happiness and success just ahead, and you will make them yours.

Being the Creator

12 Jul

Life rolls out one day at a time, and most of us cannot see the future before it unfolds.  There is no way to know what will happen next, what will come, or how things will develop until they do. What’s on the other side of the door isn’t visible until we reach out and open it to see what’s there.  Although we can’t predict the days ahead, there are some things we can be sure of. There is an old saying, “If you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always gotten.”  It’s a true axiom. It’s impossible to expect change if we keep doing the same things over and over. If we want to make more money but refuse to leave the job we’re in or do what is needed to move ahead, the money will elude us. If we want to be more fit but don’t exercise or change our activity levels, nothing will change. If we want more excitement in our lives, but continue to follow the same patterns and go to the same places, our lives will remain the same. In those ways, we can accurately and precisely predict the future. When we keep everything the same, we create a future very much like the present we’re living. Our lives are ours to design and we can do anything we desire, but we must be willing to do what is needed to achieve the changes we want the most. Standing around, daydreaming and hoping something will happen that will transform everything into what we want will do nothing. We are smart and powerful, and when we’re ready, every dream awaits. Every possibility is there for us, and with focus and determination, nothing is out of reach. We can create the lives we want the most, and find complete happiness.  

Nobody gets a perfect life where everything goes exactly the way they wish, and there are no trials or hardships. Things will go wrong, people will disappoint, plans will fall apart, and we will have to find our way through. Trouble comes to us all, but there are no problems without solutions. No matter what is in the way, or how the road turns, if we are determined to reach the goal we will find the way forward. The answers will always be there for us but we must be willing to search for them and then implement them once we find them. Few things come without effort, but no matter what is required, we have all the courage and strength we need to push forward. No destination is too far away or too difficult for us to manage, and with clarity and patience we will prevail.

It takes courage to change our lives. Staying in the same place, and doing the same things is easy and comfortable. If we want something more, we can look at all the options possible and make a plan to move toward the goals we most desire. We can go anywhere and do anything, and we never need permission or agreement of those around us to achieve what we want the most. There is great success just ahead, and every goal is possible. By trusting ourselves, and stepping out of our comfort zones, and reaching further for what we want, we will succeed.

Today if you want to change your life, and do something different, think about what you want the most and make a plan. Be confident and take the first step forward. There isn’t anything you can’t do. Trust yourself and move toward the goals you most desire. Every destination awaits and nothing can keep you from success.  You are amazing and highly capable, and nothing is out of reach. Every dream is waiting, and you will make them yours.

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.
