One Step Further

1 Aug

There are unlimited things we can accomplish in our lives and we can go anywhere and do anything we desire. Everything is possible and with focus and determination we can create the lives we want and make our fondest dreams reality. When we’re pushing toward a goal and we’ve been working on it for a while, we may tire and need to stop for a time until we decide on our next steps. We may be reticent to halt our progress even temporarily, and want to continue to push through despite our fatigue. However, standing still gives us the chance to review how far we’ve come and look ahead at the options before us. Seeing the road ahead before we move forward will help us avoid pitfalls and complications that are obvious before we begin. We can’t read the future and there is no way to predict problems that may occur, but if we take the time to look carefully before we proceed, we may be able to head some of them off before they arrive. It’s good to be focused and push ahead, and we can achieve any goal we desire, but before we take one step further, we can review every option and make the best choices possible. We have all the wisdom and insight we need to find our way to any goal we’ve chosen. There will likely be obstacles in the way from time to time, but we will always be able to find the path around them. If the road we’re on stops or ends, we can find another one to continue moving forward. Nothing is impossible and we have everything we need to prevail, no matter where we want to go. If the goal is huge and complex, we can take it apart and advance one step at a time. We are smart enough and strong enough to go anywhere and do anything. Nothing is too far to reach, and we will have the lives we desire most.

When we reach a goal and have accomplished what we set out to do, there may be a great sense of achievement and relief. We may feel we’ve finally arrived, and take some time to relax and bask in our success. It’s good to reach our goals and feel complete, but life continues on and although we may be happy with where we are now, as we move forward, there will always be another step to take. The possibilities are endless and with each success, new doors before us will open and offer new horizons to explore.

Keeping our lives small and restricted may make us feel secure and comfortable. We know the players around us, and what to expect. It’s fine to stick to the same patterns if we want a simple, predictable life, but the world is filled with opportunities and possibilities. If we reach just a little further, and try something new, we may find great happiness and satisfaction. There are endless things to do and we can fill our lives with worthwhile and enriching experiences. We can have the lives we dream about and accomplish anything we desire.

Today if you’ve reached a goal you’ve been striving for and feel content and happy, enjoy your success and everything you’ve earned. There are unlimited possibilities awaiting you and the whole world is there for the taking. Move forward with confidence, take another step further, and you’ll find great happiness and satisfaction.

Vertical World

10 Jul

There are endless opportunities all around us every day. We can do anything we like and go to unlimited locations. When we look around, there is always something new to see. There are others sharing the journey with us, and endless experiences waiting to be enjoyed. However, if we only have our eyes trained on the road ahead, we may miss them. It’s good to be focused and determined to move forward, and we can accomplish a lot by staying true to the road we’re on. If we want to be the first, the best, the fastest, or the most successful, we may only look for ways to move us closer to the goal. Being competitive and eager may push us forward but as we’re advancing, it may be hard to think of anything but the road ahead. We may hold tight to an invisible vertical line that points straight to the destination we desire and fail to notice anything else. If we don’t waver, odds are we’ll succeed in our endeavors, but as with everything in life, there will be trade-offs. We may miss connections with those around us, the companionship of working together, and the chance to learn from those who are walking beside us. Staying in a vertical world will limit our ability to gain knowledge from those with experiences we desire, or build relationships that may open doors for us in the future. Every dream is possible and we certainly have everything we need to prevail at anything we want to do. Allowing others to share the road with us, and learning from their experiences may provide much valuable information and insight. Nobody knows everything. We can strive for success and still reach out to those beside us. The relationships we build and the companionship we share will make the journey easier and more rewarding. Every success is possible and we can achieve anything we desire. Allowing others to join us moving forward will bring great satisfaction and fulfillment.

The fastest way to get from point A to point B is a straight line. Everyone understands this, but rarely in our lives will it be possible to travel in them. Most of the time the road bends, there are detours, construction, and things in the way. We can always modify our direction to get around whatever is blocking the road ahead, and when we do, we learn new things and see new places. We can reach every destination but we may not reach it exactly when we planned. Learning to be flexible and alter our course when needed will help us find the success we desire.

There is no time frame for success. We may set a deadline for completing something and do everything in our power to make sure we get everything done, and still we may be diverted along the way. A delay isn’t a failure. If things get backed up and we can’t move forward, we can look at all the options possible and find another way. There will always be another road and nothing can keep us from reaching our goals.

Today if you’ve been focusing only on the way forward and have kept your eyes on each step ahead, remember those around you. Look beside you and extend yourself to others. Success will come. There is great happiness waiting for you. Share the journey with others, and together you will prevail.

Hair On Fire

18 Jun

We have all kinds of experiences as we go through our lives. We don’t have control over most of what happens and may be affected by actions and decisions we know nothing about. Things may change suddenly and unexpectedly. We can’t read the future and all the decisions being made by others around us and around the world may bring our lives to a screaming halt. What we do next often determines how things will go from there. If we freak out, lose our minds, and run around like our hair is on fire, chances are we won’t see the answers we need to change the situation. We may be extremely upset about what’s happened, and we might express that in a thousand different ways, but one thing is certain, anger and hysteria won’t help us. We may feel better after we express it, but we’ll still be right where we were when the bubble burst. The only way to change our situation is to see it openly and objectively, and then with patience and clarity choose our next move. There is a solution to every problem, and we are never stuck in any situation no matter how intense or difficult. There will always be a way forward and we can find it. We can look at all the options possible and decide how we want to proceed. Life is filled with uncertainties and surprises. Just when we think we’ve got everything figured out, a wrench may get thrown into our plans. It doesn’t matter how complicated the situation gets, we can find the way forward. We already possess everything we need to do anything we want. We can be strong, and patient and solve any problem that comes. Nothing is powerful enough to hold us down, and we can still achieve great success.

When we’re working hard to accomplish a goal and something we can’t move is in the way, we have options. Sometimes the plans we made at the beginning won’t carry us through to the end. There are always a lot of variables and when they don’t work together, we may have to regroup and change direction. There are many roads to every goal and we can adjust our plans when necessary to continue forward. If we get stopped and can’t move, we can be flexible and find alternative choices that will help us proceed.

Everything we want to do is possible but sometimes we can’t accomplish it right now. If we keep hitting a roadblock no matter what we do or where we go, it may be a signal that the goal isn’t possible at this time. It’s hard to be patient when we want something badly but wasting energy on something that can’t happen won’t benefit us. Life is constantly changing and if we can’t move forward now, we can set the goal aside until things are different and try again. We can accomplish anything we like by looking at our situation clearly and finding the best way forward.

Today if everything has changed and you can’t move ahead with the plans you’ve made, instead of losing control, calmly look at everything possible and decide on your next steps forward. You can accomplish anything you desire and revise your plans when needed to find success. Be confident and be clear. Every goal is there for you. You have everything you need to win and you will prevail.

Long Con

30 May

There are all kinds of people in the world and some of them aren’t as honest or trustworthy as we would hope. Some people make choices based on greed, or control, or manipulation or a thousand other negative reasons. If they enter our lives and are dishonest with us, we may find ourselves in a very uncomfortable and difficult situation. Perhaps they’re co-workers who want to discredit us to move themselves forward, or intimate relationships with others who convince us they love us when they only want something from us. When the truth of the situation appears, if we are deeply entrenched, it may be hard to believe what’s happened. Looking back after all the facts are laid bare, we will see everything clearly and may wonder how we ever fell for the trap. We may feel like fools, and struggle to forgive ourselves for believing the lie. But it’s good to trust others, and there is sometimes no way to know the whole story from the beginning. If we’ve been manipulated and used by someone else, we may believe we should have known better, or somehow should have seen what was happening. We don’t know what we don’t know, and can only work with the facts we’ve been given. If we’ve been conned into believing something that isn’t true, once we discover everything, we can learn from the experience and take that knowledge with us going forward. Most people are honest and will do the right thing. We can forgive ourselves if we’ve been fooled, and move on with increased clarity and confidence. We are wise and capable, and nothing can hold us down indefinitely. We know what we want, and we will find success.

Our emotions can be very powerful and if we’re transfixed by someone we believe in, we may forge ahead blindly, ignoring warnings around us that something isn’t quite right. Others may try to caution us, but it’s up to us to listen. We can do anything we like, even if it leads us to disaster. Everyone makes mistakes and if we find we’ve arrived at our desired goal, only to discover it isn’t anything like we thought it would be, we can stop, look at all our options and choose the best road going forward. Life is all about change and nothing is permanent. Mistakes don’t define us. We can always adjust our plans and start again.

If we make a serious mistake with long reaching consequences, it may be hard to trust ourselves again. We may believe we’ll never choose well, and everything we do will end badly. That will never be true. We are smart enough to learn from our mistakes and can always make excellent choices. Every success is possible and we can trust ourselves to find the right roads ahead. Nothing is beyond our grasp and we will reach every destination we desire.

Today if you’ve been manipulated and lied to, and are doubting your ability to choose wisely, trust yourself. You’ve made many excellent decisions already and will make them again. You are strong and intelligent, and nothing is too difficult for you to comprehend. Learn everything you can and move forward with confidence. Every success is there for you and you will reach it.

Inside Out

26 Mar

There are all kinds of ideas, interpretations, scenarios, and concepts all around us all the time. Everyone has their own perspective about what’s happening and how things should go. If we believe our viewpoint is the only one that’s correct, it may keep us from seeing other ideas even if they’re pertinent and valuable. That’s fine if our idea is the only one we need and we control the situation, but if we’re working with others, and must collaborate, it will be necessary to open our minds to what they offer. We may uncover information that will help us move forward, but not everyone will have our best interests at heart. We may be in a situation where someone appears to be trying to help but are only pushing us toward something they desire. They may manipulate the facts to sell their point in an effort to convince us to follow their lead. There are countless ways to accomplish any goal and we can certainly hear every perspective and suggestion. We can be open to new ideas and find a new, and improved path to follow but we must also validate each option before proceeding. We don’t know what we don’t know and there is no way to comprehend everything around us. Everyone has their own slant on each situation and every perspective can evaluated on its own terms. We can be confident and trust that we can discern between truth and fiction. We can listen to other ideas, determine the value of their suggestions and then proceed. We are intelligent and capable, and success is always possible. Every road is open and we can reach any destination we desire by listening carefully and choosing what works.

Truth will always rise no matter how it’s colored, bent, or manipulated. It’s more powerful than any deception but while we’re finding our way, it’s possible to be convinced of a lie. Some people may be determined to push us in one direction and make us believe something untrue to advance their agenda. If we trust or admire them, or they are close to us personally, we may fall victim to their plan. When the truth becomes apparent, we may feel completely inside out and confused. Despite the deception, we can trust ourselves to step forward with confidence knowing we will find the way ahead. We can learn from the situation and reach success.

We live in the real world with real facts and consequences. There may be times when something in our lives is hard to accept. We may desperately want things to be different than they are, and may decide to create a reality that’s easier to swallow and more what we desire. Living in a dream state may make us feel better temporarily but truth will persist and in time, if we want to move forward, we’ll have to accept it. Things don’t always go the way we want them to. We can accept what is real and then proceed forward with determination.

Today if you’re struggling to find your way, remember you are wise and capable. You can recognize what is real and true, and will know how to proceed. You know what you want and have everything you need to reach your goals. Choose the best road ahead and move toward your dreams. Everything is possible and nothing is out of reach. All your dreams are waiting for you. Step forward and claim them.

Old Love Letters

20 Feb

Change is constant in life. We never know what each day will bring but one thing is certain, whatever we’re experiencing today will inevitably change. If the change is positive or something we’ve been striving for, when it finally occurs, we feel satisfaction and relief. But we don’t always welcome the developments that come and if they are hard or heartbreaking, it may take us some time to recover. It’s hard to let go of something we really want. We may hang onto the old feelings and try to find a way to revisit the way things used to be. Like taking old love letters out of a box and re-reading them, hoping to capture one more time the tender feelings that once enveloped us. Life is a great blessing, but it isn’t always easy.  Letting go of a dream is painful, and we may need time to consider everything that’s happened and find the way forward. How long that takes is different for everyone and every situation. We don’t need to rush through to the next thing in an effort to forget. We can take our time, learn everything possible from the experience, and then when we’re ready, step forward. Time is always on our side and with patience, and perseverance, we will begin again. We can manage anything that comes and have everything we need to push through any disappointment. There isn’t anything powerful enough to hold us down indefinitely. Every destination and goal are always possible and no matter what has happened in the past, we will succeed in the future. We can trust ourselves to overcome any disappointment and move forward with confidence. Our dreams are still there for us, and with determination we can make them come true.

Everyone’s needs and understanding are different. What comes easily for one may be very difficult for another. Some people are pragmatic and recover quickly when they face a big disappointment. Others are more sensitive and need more time to get back on their feet and start again. There are many ways to manage every situation and one person’s perspective doesn’t work for everyone. We can recognize our own personal needs and do things our own way. We can overcome anything and find our way ahead.

Disappointments can be difficult to manage, but they bring with them an optional view of what could happen next. When the road we’re on ends and we can’t move forward, we can look at all the options before us. We can do anything and go anywhere. The possibilities are limitless. We can choose another direction and begin toward a new goal. Our lives are always in our control and when one plan fails, we can start on another. Success is always there for us, and with determination and confidence, we’ll reach it.

Today if you’re getting over a big disappointment and aren’t sure what to do next, look around at everything possible. You are strong and capable, and nothing can hold you down. Take the time you need to reassess what you want, and then begin again. The whole world is there for you. Open a new door and step forward. All your dreams are possible, and you will succeed.

Getting Serious

4 Feb

There are unlimited things we can do in life and endless goals to achieve. Each day changes us a little and teaches us something new. Our dreams and goals change as we grow, and what we wanted in the past may not be our focus today. We learn new things each day and can adjust our direction going forward to get to the goals we want the most. Some goals take a lot of thought and we may need time before we decide we’re ready to move toward them. If they require changes in our patterns or behaviors, we may need to prepare before we’re ready to embrace them completely. It’s okay to take our time. We don’t have to jump on an idea the moment we think of it. Success doesn’t have to be tied to the amount of time we take to achieve it. We can think about what we want and decide when we want to accomplish any goal we desire. Once we’re ready and determined to move forward, nothing can keep us from success. There isn’t anything we can’t do if we’re focused on the goal. We can plan our way forward, and each step we take will move us closer to where we want to go. There are infinite possibilities before us every day. We can dream big and then make our dreams come true. No destination is out of reach. Once we decide where we want to go and are willing to do what is necessary to get there, nothing can keep us from success. Life is filled with opportunities. We can do anything and can have the lives we dream about. We can get serious about what we really want and make it ours. It’s all up to us.

There are countless things that can go wrong when we’re trying to accomplish something. People may intervene and get in the way, decisions out of our control may complicate the road ahead, and our timing may be impacted and we may have to wait. There will rarely be a paved, straight road ahead without any problems or delays. We are capable of managing any complications that arise and if we have to wait, we can step aside for a time until things improve and then return to continue our journey forward. Our lives belong to us and we can make them any way we like. We can accomplish any goal and reach any destination.

A bright, sunny day with clear skies and comfortable temperatures makes life enjoyable and easy. When things are going well and the road ahead is clear and open, we can move forward quickly and accomplish much. But the weather in our lives is unpredictable and can change without warning. When dark clouds roll in and the rain has us locked in, we can use the time to plan our next steps ahead and be ready when things change. Nothing can keep us from anything we desire. We can stay focused on the goal and be confident of success.

Today if you’re ready to begin moving toward a goal you’ve been thinking about, take the first step forward. Decide to hold fast even if things get complicated and keep moving ahead. There isn’t anything you can’t do and no destination is too far to reach. Trust yourself and be confident. You are amazing and powerful, and nothing is impossible. Every success is just ahead. Your dreams can come true and you will win.
