Nirvana

29 Dec

Our lives are ours to design and we can do anything we like. Every option we desire is possible but the things we want won’t suddenly appear or fall into our laps while we sit and dream. Although we may wish for them, magic genies who can grant our wishes will never be real. We can have every single dream we imagine but making them come true is up to us. There might be a fairy godmother somewhere but it’s unlikely she’s going to appear any time soon. Instead of wishing and hoping that our lives would change into our fondest desires and dreams, we can objectively look at what it will take to make it happen, and then set forth to accomplish the task. Some things take a lot of work and will require a lot of time, but everything worth having is worth working for. By deciding what we want the most, and then doing what is necessary to make it ours, we can create the life we dream about. We can create our own Nirvana and find complete happiness and satisfaction. Or we can sit around and dream about what our lives could be like and do nothing. Complaining because we aren’t where we want to be, or shrinking back because we lack the confidence we need to get there won’t move us forward. What we do is our choice and responsibility. We don’t have to know everything, or have all the tools we need before we start the journey. Taking a step forward will give us more information to move ahead, and the confidence to take another. Step by step, staying focused on the goal, we’ll move forward until we reach it. Every dream is possible, and nothing is too difficult for us to accomplish. We can plan effectively, and then stay on course until we find success. The lives we desire most are waiting for us, and with determination we will make them ours.

A road that has been well-traveled is much easier to navigate than one we have to cut ourselves as we push forward. We can always do what everyone else is doing and settle for what’s common and easy. But if we want our own dreams to come true and have lives filled with rich experiences and success, we’ll have to reach further than what’s easy. We can reach beyond where we are and strive for more. By moving toward the dreams we really want, we can reach every goal and find true happiness and satisfaction.

If we don’t take control of our lives and push toward the goals and dreams we really want, time will roll on and we’ll simply go where life takes us. It’s impossible to go where we want to go if someone else is driving the train. Instead of coasting along, we can proactively take charge of our decisions and move toward the goals we want the most. We are intelligent and strong, and nothing can keep us from any destination. Every dream is possible, and we can make them ours.

Today if you’ve been kicking back and letting things just roll out as they will, remember your dreams are important. You know what you want, and already possess everything you need to make it yours. Take charge of your destiny and move toward your goals. Nothing can keep you from anything you desire. You are amazing and powerful, and you will prevail.

Anchored

18 Dec

Nothing in life is permanent and change is constant. Every day something new comes along, all the plans we’ve made may shift, and we may suddenly be facing an entirely new landscape. The winds of change are unpredictable and may arise unexpectedly. We never know what will happen next, and although we may try to be prepared for unforeseen surprises, we might be taken aback when they arrive. It’s easy to move forward when the road ahead is paved and clear, is well known and well-traveled. We may set out sure of success, and everything may go exactly as planned. Or everything may turn upside down. There is no way to predict the future. All we can do is cope with whatever happens the best we can, and alter our plans and direction in ways that enable us to continue. When we’re going through tumultuous times and everything is unsure, we are never completely adrift in the wind. We have internal anchors that help us stay focused and remind us of our capacity for success. These anchors are created and enriched with each accomplishment we achieve. We are never so far out of our comfort zone that we can’t find our way. There will never be a time when we are so untethered and adrift that we will permanently fail. All the answers we need, even in uncertain times, are already there for us, and the wisdom and knowledge we’ve attained so far will guide us to them. By trusting ourselves and remembering everything we’ve overcome so far, we can summon the courage we need to face anything. Our anchors will always be there to hold us firmly and securely. Hard times will come, things will go wrong, the road may disappear, but we will prevail. Every success is there for us, and with determination and calm, we will reach them all.

When our lives are going well and things are working out the way we want them to, we may feel at ease and relaxed. Enjoying conflict free moments gives us time to rest and consider our options for the future, so that when things change, and clouds appear, we will be confident in moving forward. We are stronger and more powerful than we realize, and nothing can keep us from our goals. Every dream we desire is possible and we have everything we need to make them ours.

Some people think life is like a scorecard. They believe that trouble happens because of something we did wrong. It’s likely we’ll all make mistakes along the way, but problems may arise we have no control over regardless of what we do. We can do everything right and still the road may turn because of circumstances beyond our reach. Problems will come but they cannot hold us in place. We will find the way ahead, and reach the destinations we desire.

Today if you feel like you’re in a whirlwind of trouble and can’t find your footing, stop and remember all the times you’ve succeeded already. You are intelligent and capable, and nothing is too difficult for you to manage. Trust yourself and step forward with confidence. You will find every answer. All your dreams are still there for you. Step forward and claim them.

Can’t Do It

25 Nov

Not everything in life comes easily. We will all face moments when there is something we must do we are sure we cannot accomplish. The barriers in front of us may be huge and daunting, or the situation may be so complex and difficult we have no idea how to proceed. At times like that, we must decide if we’re going to confidently push forward despite our doubts, or cut and run in the other direction, leaving the entire mess for someone else to take care of. If the situation is extreme, running away may be very appealing, but backing away from hard challenges gives us nothing in return. There is no return on investment in giving up. If we really feel we can’t do it, and can’t manage what’s before us, instead of surrendering, we can reach out for help from those around us. We all have different experiences and what’s unknown and overwhelming to us may be something someone else has already faced and knows how to overcome. Asking for help may give us the tools we need to find our way forward. Hard times will come to us all and there is great value and benefit to facing them head on and doing what is necessary to move through them. As we solve problems, we gain more information and greater skills to take forward with us. Life is full of obstacles and unforeseen developments that may stand in our way and muddy the road ahead. We are intelligent and capable, and strong enough and wise enough to face whatever comes. Nothing is too hard for us to manage, and with temerity and courage, we will find our way forward, no matter what’s lies ahead. Every single destination is possible, and nothing can keep us from success.

When hard times come, there may be some around us who will tell us we can’t succeed. They may believe the problem is too big, and too difficult for us to manage. Everyone has their own opinions and we can listen to whatever advice we’re given, but nobody knows us better than we know ourselves. All the answers we need will always be available in every situation. We may need to search for them, but they will rise, and we will prevail. We are more powerful than we realize and will find the way forward.

We may face a situation that is beyond our means. Perhaps it’s so big one person cannot accomplish it on their own, or it requires assets to solve we don’t possess. We can reach out to others for support and help, and with careful thought and determination, find the answers we need. No man is an island, and there will always be someone who can help when we get stuck. We can trust ourselves to handle any problem that arises, and be confident we will succeed, no matter what’s in the way.

Today if you’re facing an issue you are sure you cannot overcome, remember all the times you’ve prevailed in the past. You are amazing and capable, and already possess everything you need to succeed. Be confident and step forward. The answers are there for you and you will find them. Success will be yours, and your dreams will come true.

Make You Happy

23 Sep

Everyone wants to be happy and feel satisfied, and fulfilled in their lives. We all deserve complete happiness and it’s within the reach of everyone. If we’re unhappy and unsettled, we might try to achieve contentment by acquiring things, and accumulating wealth. It’s fun to purchase things we desire, and they may bring us immediate joy, but the thrill of something new wears away quickly. Wealth may seem to be the answer to lasting happiness, but we will be the same person whether we achieve it or not. If we haven’t figured out what we really want and need, no amount of money will fix it. We might think if we find someone to love us whom we love in return we’ll be happy, and that is certainly possible. But every relationship has its challenges and there will be ups and downs that may cause hardship and stress from time to time. Contentment is fleeting when we get it from things or others. If we want real, abiding happiness, we are the only ones who can give it to us. By taking ownership of our own peace and fulfillment, we discover what gives us joy and then can design our lives in ways that brings it. There are endless roads we can travel, and unlimited things to do. We can mimic those around us and follow their example, but until we chart our own course toward the goals we desire most, we will never reach complete fulfillment. Understanding what we want the most, and then doing what is needed to make it ours, will fill us with great satisfaction and endless pleasure. Every single blessing we seek is there for us, and nothing is out of reach. We have the power to do whatever we want, and reach every success.

When we love someone, we want them to be happy. We may do the things they want to do, and agree with them, even if we feel differently, in an effort to make them comfortable. It’s good to compromise and work with those we care about, but giving up who we are and our own personal viewpoints to keep the peace or make things seem easier than they are, will not bring us satisfaction. We can build good, strong relationships and still express our own opinions. Our contribution is valuable, and by confidently sharing our ideas and perspectives, we will enrich our connections with those we love.

It’s impossible to find real, lasting happiness by relying on others to provide it for us. Everyone is working on their own lives, and taking care of their own responsibilities. We can’t lean on our friends or family and expect them to pave the way for us. We have everything we need to do anything we like. We can trust ourselves to reach any destination and accomplish any goal. Our lives belong solely to us. With determination and clarity, we can design them in ways that make our dreams reality and bring us incredible happiness.

Today if you’ve been waiting for things to change in ways that make you happy, take charge of your life. You are amazing and capable, and can do anything you desire. Decide what you want the most, and then step forward toward the goal. Nothing is too hard or too far away for you to reach. Every success is possible, and you will reach it.

The Highest Rung

23 Jun

Life is full of challenges and unexpected developments that complicate our lives and may cause stress and discomfort. Even if we make every decision perfectly, things may go wrong. When we suddenly have to face a serious setback, out of frustration and irritation, we may lose our temper and lash out. “How can this be happening?” we might demand. When we’re carefully measuring our steps moving forward, and focusing on the road ahead, if the bottom suddenly falls away and we’re left stranded trying to find our footing, it can be hard to figure out what to do next. We can scream and yell, and blame those around us, or the situation we’re in, and that might make us feel better, but it will change nothing. We only have control over our own decisions, and the world may butt in and interrupt our plans. Things may go wrong, we may get stopped in our tracks, and the road we were on may disappear, but we can still find the way forward. Reaching for success isn’t always easy. Often the greater the goal we’re striving for, the harder the road will be to get there. When we’re climbing for success, we must reach for highest rung on the ladder. We may slip and fall down a few steps, and if we’re frustrated and tired, we can stay there. But we will only reach success if we continue to climb. It doesn’t matter what gets in the way, we will find the road around it. If we have to wait, the goal will still be there for us. We already possess everything we need to do anything we want. We can be confident and consistent moving forward, and reach any destination we desire.

We can do anything we like and design our lives any way we choose. If we want mediocre lives filled with routine and sameness, it’s easy to achieve. We can settle for whatever comes and be satisfied coasting along. But if we want to experience greatness and strive for the best we can be, we must step away from what is common and comfortable, and reach for something higher. We are far more capable than we realize and nothing is too far away for us to reach. We can aim high, and reach any goal we choose. All options are possible, and nothing can keep us from success.

Talking about what we want to achieve may help us clarify where we want to go, but talking won’t move us closer to the goal. Progress forward requires action. We can think about what we want to do, and dream of goals we want to achieve, but we must actually step forward and do what is needed to obtain them. The world is filled with possibilities, and we have all the courage and wisdom we need to accomplish anything. We can trust ourselves and believe in our capacity to overcome any obstacle. By moving ahead with clarity and focus, we can have the lives we desire most.

Today if there’s a goal you want to achieve, make a plan to reach success and start moving forward. You are powerful and capable, and can accomplish anything you desire. Reach for the highest rung on the ladder and claim the prize. Every blessing is there for you, and all your dreams are possible. Step forward with certainty, and you will succeed.
