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.

Paving the Road

10 Nov

Every day we make lots of decisions about what we’re doing, where we’re going, and how we want to proceed. Sometimes, we can see where the decision will take us, and we move forward confident we’ll end up with the results we seek. Every road has a destination, and with careful thought and planning, we can get where we want to go. But not everything is obvious at the start, and we may be sure we’re headed on the right road while going in the opposite direction. All our goals are possible but everything we do either helps pave the road ahead or creates obstacles that get in the way. Which way things will go depends on the decisions we make with each step. Nobody wants to complicate their lives on purpose or tries to create more problems moving forward. Even though we may try to make the best decisions possible, we might still get hung up and stopped. We have no control over what others are doing or what will happen. The only thing we can control is what we do, and it’s possible that even if we’ve planned well, and tried to be ready for every conceivable eventually, something unexpected may happen that keeps us from success. If we do all we can to pave the road ahead and prepare in advance, no matter what comes, we’ll find the way through. Nothing is powerful enough to keep us from success. It might be delayed as we navigate through complications, but we will prevail. Life is filled with surprises and we may be pushed off course. But there are endless roads to every single destination, and we are smart enough and courageous enough to find the way forward. We may not reach it today, and tomorrow may be difficult, but with persistence and confidence, we will reach the goal. We have everything we need to do anything we desire. Each step forward gets us closer, and we will win.

There are endless choices before us with each decision we make. What we decide will either help us move forward or hold us in place. If we’re careless or rush before we get all the facts, we may choose things that create roadblocks and detours on the road ahead. We may spend countless hours trying to move around avoidable issues and problems. By taking the time we need to see everything before we jump, the journey will be easier, and we will reach the destination.

Everyone has their own opinions about life and what we should do. Before we begin toward a goal, we may get lots of advice about moving forward. We can certainly heed any suggestion or guidance we’re given, but nobody knows us better than we know ourselves. We already know what we want and where we want to go, and have all the wisdom and intelligence we need to get there. Every dream is possible, and with determination and faith, we can accomplish anything.

Today if the road ahead is convoluted and complex, remember how wise and capable you are. There isn’t anything you can’t manage. Make decisions that will pave the way to success, and step forward with confidence. You are amazing and powerful. Every destination is already there for you. Move ahead sure of success, and you’ll reach it.

Down A Peg

30 Oct

There are all kinds of people in the world, and we’ll interact with many of them as we navigate through our lives. Some will be nice, and easy to talk to, others may be aloof and standoffish, and some may be mean and hateful. The spectrum of behaviors and expressions is unlimited and varied, but building friendships and connections help us pave the road ahead. Finding others with similar beliefs and common life patterns encourages us to form alliances and strengthen bonds. It’s good to have a network around us filled with people we can trust and honor, who offer us the same in return. But not everyone is interested in getting close. Some people are highly competitive and see those around them merely as stepping stones to get closer to what they want. If we’re in their way, they may push us aside and storm past without looking back. It’s impossible to befriend someone who only sees themselves. If they are only interested in what the world can give them and don’t care about anyone else’s feelings, it will be difficult to form any kind of lasting bond. If we must work with them it may be hard to get our opinions and ideas heard. We can try to speak up and stand strong, but they may do everything in their power to knock us down a peg, and keep us quiet. We all have something of value to offer. Nobody knows everything or has all the best ideas. We’re entitled to our own views and opinions, and can be confident in expressing them. They are not worth less because someone doesn’t want to hear them. We are never devalued just because someone thinks they are better or more important than we are. We can be confident and strong in expressing ourselves in every situation. Every dream is possible, and every success can be ours. No one can stop us from achieving our goals, and nothing can keep us from any destination we desire.

Some people believe they are somehow more essential and meaningful than the rest of us. They are confident that they have the right answers to whatever questions may arise and don’t really care about anyone else’s viewpoint or opinion. It’s good to have a strong self-image and high standards, but if we minimize the importance of others, we will miss the chance to hear new ideas, and expand our understanding. Nobody has all the answers. We can be sure of ourselves and still recognize contributions from those around us.

If we are timid or unsure, we may hesitate to speak up and share our thoughts when problems arise, but we are unique, and nobody sees the world exactly as we do. Everyone’s perception is different, and we alone may hold the keys that show the way to success. We can share our opinions and trust ourselves to find the answers we seek. We are wise and capable, and the whole world is embellished because we are here.

Today if someone is trying to hold you back and keep you quiet, remember your ideas and opinions are valuable and important. Speak up and step forward with confidence. Nothing is strong enough to hold you in place. Every success you desire is there for you. Be confident and sure. You are amazing and powerful, and all your dreams are possible.

Maybe Today

7 Jul

We always know what we want and where we want to go. When everything is in our control, we can step ahead and reach any destination with confidence. But we aren’t alone in the world, and sometimes we may get stuck because of someone else’s choices, or because the timing isn’t there for us. One of the hardest experiences we have may be when we must wait for something we really want. We have no way of reading the future, and can’t know what will happen. We want things to fall into place so we can reach success. If it’s all up to us, we can reach any goal. However, there may be times when we’ve done all we can, but still we aren’t there, and must wait. Waiting is hard and if it continues for a long time, can be maddening. It’s difficult to be patient and stand still when all we can think about is moving ahead. We have complete control over our own decisions and the things we do, but that’s where the control ends. We may be able to force some situations, but often we are powerless over what’s happening. Everyone makes their own decisions and decides on their own time frames. We can’t make them move more quickly, pay attention to what we want, or make our needs a priority. We know where we want to go, but getting there isn’t always easy. We can always give our input to others involved, and try to press what’s important to us, but in the end, we may still have to wait. We can give in to frustration and anger, or we can use the time to plan for when things change. Nothing stays the same forever, and eventually, we’ll be able to advance. Every success will always be there for us, and in time, however long that takes, we’ll reach it.

If we’ve been waiting for a long time for a specific door to open, those around us may encourage us to give up. They may tell us it’s foolish to keep waiting and we should just change direction and focus on something else. There will always be many opportunities available and we can alter our course at any time. We are the only ones who know what we really want, and if the goal is still important to us, we can hang onto it until things change. If we’ve moved on, we can let it go, and focus on something new.

Time waits for no one, and moves forward whether we’re moving with it or standing still. Waiting for something to happen so we can achieve a goal doesn’t mean we have to put our whole lives in a holding pattern. While we wait, we can focus on other destinations and continue moving forward. There are unlimited things we can accomplish, and nothing can hold us in place. We are talented and intelligent, and will find success. The whole world is there for us, and with clarity and certainty, we can reach any destination.

Today if you’ve been waiting for something you really want, and it’s still out of reach, remember how capable and wise you are. Focus on the goals that are available to you today, and move forward with confidence. Nothing can keep you from success. You are amazing and strong, and will find the way to every destination you desire.

Staying Down

26 May

As we navigate through our lives, we experience all kinds of developments and find our way through countless twists and turns. The road ahead is sometimes easy and we can advance quickly, getting to the desired goal. But every road is different, and there may be times when it seems no matter what we do, we remain stuck in place. There may be obstacles too high to overcome, or someone else standing in the way who refuses to move. Complications will come and may interfere with our plans and stop us in our tracks. We may get pushed off the path, and have to sit and wait for things to change. If we get blocked and can’t move forward, instead of complaining and pacing impatiently, we can stand still where we are and work on something else. Everyone gets knocked down from time to time, and if we can’t see a way forward right now, we can stay down and wait. Staying down when we can’t move forward isn’t giving up. While we wait, we can look at everything clearly and consider all the possibilities ahead. Taking the time to review what’s happened, where we are, and how we can continue forward, will help us come up with a plan. We can see everything objectively, and decide on the best road ahead. Nothing can hold us in place forever, and in time, however long that takes, we’ll be able to start again and achieve any goal we desire. We’re in control of our lives, and no matter what happens, can find the road ahead that will take us to success. We are powerful and strong, and nothing is out of reach. By being confident and patient, we will achieve every success we desire.

Complications are a part of life. There are few times when we can go from where we are to where we want to be without something going wrong. We only have control over ourselves and there are millions of others making decisions that may impact our ability to advance. We may get hung up and be unable to move forward for a time, but if we’re devoted to the task and determined to succeed, nothing can stop us indefinitely. There are unlimited roads ahead and if the one we’re on gets blocked, we can step on another and continue. Nothing can hold us down forever, and we will reach the goal.

If we’ve had one complication after another and it seems no matter what we do, the doors ahead are blocked, we can set the goal aside for a time and work on something else. Change is constant and whatever we’re facing today will be different tomorrow. Nothing can stay the same forever, and eventually we’ll be able to start again. Every goal is possible, and with patience and determination, we can accomplish anything we desire.

Today if you’ve been stopped and can’t move forward because of circumstances out of your control, look at everything objectively. Decide on your next steps and prepare for when things change and you can start again. You are highly capable and intelligent, and nothing can hold you in place indefinitely. Every success is there for you and in time, you will reach it.
