Possible

20 Aug

Our lives are a reflection of every decision we make. If we’re focused on where we want to go, and make choices that move us closer to our goals, we’ll get to the destinations we want. But life is busy and complicated, and there are endless things that can distract us and pull us away from doing what is needed to find the success we’re seeking. People are constantly coming and going in and out of our lives demanding our time and attention, and countless unpredictable events can push us off track and hold us in place. If we’ve been trying to do something for a while and haven’t made any progress, we may begin to believe we can’t achieve it. Some things may not be available at this moment in time, but everything we desire can be accomplished if we keep our eyes on the goal and take advantage of opportunities as they present. We may have to wait until a better time arises, or we may have to take the long way around to get there, but everything is possible. There will always be a road to the destinations we want. We’re capable of handling details that get in the way, and can find another route if the road we’re on doesn’t work. Our lives are ours to design, and nothing can keep us from what we desire if we’re willing to do what it takes to get it. It doesn’t matter if the goal is hard to reach – we are strong and capable. It doesn’t matter if the road ahead is long and difficult – we are wise and can endure whatever is needed to succeed. All our dreams can come true and we can have the lives we desire most. Nothing is too hard for us to manage or too far away. Every destination is there for us and with determination and focus, we will reach them.

When we’re doing something new or trying to put something together, it’s helpful to consult the instructions. They help and give us added confidence when we get confused or can’t figure out the next step. Unfortunately, our lives don’t come with an instruction manual and when we’re stepping into something new, we’re on our own. There may be others willing to help or we might need to step ahead into the darkness alone. We already possess everything we need to do anything we want. We are more powerful than we realize, and nothing is out of reach.

There are endless reasons not to do something we want. It’s too hard, it’ll take too long, we aren’t sure we can succeed, or it’s Tuesday. If we really don’t want to do something, any excuse will do. But if we want to succeed, and truly desire the goal, nothing can keep us from it. There is no detour big enough to keep us from moving forward, and no complication difficult enough to hold us in place indefinitely. We can do anything. Nothing is too far away or too hard to reach. We can make our dreams come true and have the lives we desire.

Today if a thousand things have gone wrong and you’re starting to believe you can’t succeed, remember how powerful and strong you are. Complications will come but you are smart enough to find a way around them. Your life is in your control and you can do anything you want. Look up and step ahead. Every dream is possible, and you will make them yours.

Deserving It

16 Aug

Life is filled with surprises and uncertainty. We don’t have any control over what comes to us or what others are doing, but we always have control over our own decisions and choices. We can decide what we want, with whom we’ll associate, and where we want to go. Sometimes things will go exactly the way we want them to, and other times we’ll face trials and struggles that challenge us and make the road ahead difficult. When things are going wrong and nothing seems to work, we may wonder what we did to deserve this. Is it possible we caused all this heartache to come upon us? Our decisions always have consequences and there will probably be times when a choice we make takes us somewhere uncomfortable, but often when hard times come, they are the result of a thousand different things over which we had no control. Nobody wants to suffer but trouble will come to us all. We can’t possibly make enough mistakes to deserve every problem that comes our way. We don’t deserve to struggle – it’s just part of life. What we do deserve and can achieve is complete happiness. We can make excellent decisions and choose the roads that take us where we most want to go. There is great satisfaction in being in control of our lives and making choices that move us closer to our goals. Even when things fall apart and everything is upside down, we can be calm and confident that we will prevail, and find the answers we need. They will always be there for us and we have all the wisdom and courage to do what is needed to find them and solve any problem we encounter. Life is uncertain but we can be confident that no matter what comes, we will prevail. We deserve the very best life has to offer, and with patience and determination, will get it.

Our relationships are important to us and when they are positive and beneficial, bring us great peace and comfort. However, we may have a relationship that works against us, and causes pain and hardship. Our lives are ours to design and we never have to stay in situations that bring us pain and sorrow. If our association is keeping us from fulfilling our dreams or causing us serious duress, we can step away. If we are connected by family or professional ties, we can alter the way we interact so that we are comfortable and able to move forward.

We are all unique and have special gifts to offer the world. Nobody can take our place or offer the blessings we have. If our lives aren’t where we want them or we’re headed toward something we don’t desire, we can stop and re-evaluate the way forward. We deserve every dream we choose. There is a road to every destination we want, and we can change course and begin toward them at any time. Every happiness is possible and we have everything we need to find success.

Today if you’re struggling and the dreams you desire seem far away, remember how strong and powerful you are. There isn’t anything you can’t do. You deserve the very best life has to offer and every happiness can be yours. Be confident and trust yourself. Step onto the roads that will take you to the destinations you want the most. Every dream can come true and nothing is out of reach.

Pointing the Way

15 Aug

Unless we live on top of a mountain, an isolated island or in some cave somewhere, there are going to be other people around us. The world is covered with billions of them and no matter where we go, or what we’re doing, odds are we’re going to run into them. They all have ideas about life and how things should go, and they may have ideas about what we should be doing. Everyone is certainly entitled to their own opinions, but when those opinions infringe on our decisions, we may run into complications. It’s unlikely anyone will know more about our lives than we do. They may offer advice and guidance, telling us that if we go where they’re pointing and do what they propose we’ll find happiness. It’s possible they might be right once in a while, and we can always take any suggestions we like, but we know ourselves better than anyone else ever could, and we know what we want and need. Nobody has access to our inner most thoughts and nobody will ever know everything about us. We are unique and entitled to live authentically in ways that represent exactly who we are. There may be differences from those around us but we don’t have to conform to what others are doing. We can do things our way. We are the only ones with the gifts we have to offer. Expressing our true nature and desires, and living our lives in ways that represent who we most want to be will bring us great satisfaction and happiness. There isn’t now, nor will there ever be, anyone else exactly like us. We are unique and exquisite exactly as we are. We can trust ourselves to live our lives honestly and openly. The whole world is blessed because we are here, and nothing can ever take that away.

Some people are very sure of themselves. If they have strong personalities, we may get caught up in their wake and end up following them in their decisions. There’s nothing wrong with going along with something if it’s what we really want to do. But if we’re on the wrong road, headed to a destination we don’t want, we have all the power and authority we need to step off and change direction.

We can have the lives we most desire but first we must decide what kind of lives we want. Do we want to do lots of new things and have many adventures, have a life filled with learning and advancement, or keep things close and well defined? Once we decide what we want the most, we can begin making it a reality. Every dream is possible and every choice is ours to make. We’re in control and can do anything we choose. It’s all up to us. We really can have the lives we dream about.

Today if someone is trying to point the way for you to go, decide what you want the most. You can do what others suggest, or chart your own course. You have so much to offer and we’re all enriched because you are here. Decide what you want and show us who you are. There is no one who can bring the blessings you offer. You are amazing and valuable. Step forward toward the goals you want the most, and you’ll find great success and happiness.

A Hundred Turns

13 Aug

We can do anything we want in our lives and can change anything at any time. We know what kind of people we want to be, but becoming them isn’t always easy. There may be behavior traits we want to change that keep us from gaining the personal attributes we desire. We’re in control over our lives and can always adjust to fit any model we desire, but those adjustments take time and practice. Maybe we want to stop doing something that’s holding us back, or start doing something that will move us forward. We may try to alter our behavior one time and find success for a short period, only to return to the very thing we are trying to change. It’s unlikely we’ll decide what we want to do and instantaneously gain all the attributes needed to achieve it. Change takes time and repetition. There may be a hundred small turns needed before we are able to gain what we’re seeking. The first time we try we may make one small turn, the second time, maybe five more and so on. Each attempt will get us closer to the goal and if we persist and continue pressing forward, we’ll reach the destination, whatever that is. It would be great if we could just change everything in a moment and move forward, but life doesn’t work that way. It’s unlikely, probably impossible, that things will change on their own to exactly what we want. We must be focused and determined, but everything worth having is worth working for. Nothing we desire is out of reach and we can achieve anything. We can take it moment by moment, moving closer with each step, and find success. We are strong and capable, and nothing is too far or too difficult for us to manage. By staying true to the road ahead, and trusting ourselves, we can reach any goal we desire.

Just because something hasn’t been done before doesn’t mean it isn’t possible. The attempts of others to achieve the goal will give us information about what methods and ideas won’t work. We are intelligent and creative, and if we want to accomplish something, can find a way to make it happen. It may take more time than we thought at the beginning, and it might be harder than we imagined, but if we stay focused and continue forward, we will reach the goal. We have everything we need to be successful at anything we desire. Every blessing is possible and with determination and focus, we will prevail.

It’s hard to be patient when we want something to change and it isn’t happening yet. We may try one way and get stuck, only to have to backtrack and try another option. It doesn’t matter how many times we have to adjust our course. What matters is that our feet are pointed in the direction we want to go. If we keep our eyes trained on the goal and do everything we can to step ahead, we will reach it. Every single dream we desire can become reality. We have everything we need to go anywhere we want.

Today if you’ve been trying to make a change and keep getting hung up, remember each step you take moves you a little closer to the goal. Stay focused and continue. The goal is just ahead and nothing will keep you from reaching it. Every blessing is possible and nothing is out of reach. Keep moving forward. Success is there for you.

Confidence

12 Aug

Personal confidence is a great asset. It’s buoys us up if we doubt and gives us courage for what lies ahead. We feel confident when we know what we’re doing and the outcomes we desire are easy to achieve. It’s easy to feel strong and capable when we know the road ahead and have been successful in managing it in the past. Personal confidence grows when we achieve the goals we desire and move forward down the roads we choose. It’s good to be confident and feel in control, and able to prevail. But life is filled with all kinds of surprises and unknowns, and we will eventually come upon a situation where we have to do something we’ve not only never done before, but doubt we can achieve. Having to step forward when we’re unsure will test our resolve and challenge us in ways that may be uncomfortable and difficult. We don’t know what will happen, and we may not believe we’ll get through. We may not believe we’ll succeed or even survive the test, but we’re stronger than we think we are, and no matter what we must do, can find the courage to accomplish it. We will always have enough strength and determination to face whatever may come. We already possess great reserves of tenacity and fearlessness, and we can pull from deep within to get whatever tools we need to succeed. Nothing is too difficult or complex for us to manage. Even if we’re scared, uncertain or worried, we can trust ourselves to step forward and find our way. We can test our confidence and prevail. There is no road too hard, no hill too high, and no path too steep for us to overcome. We can do anything we desire and every goal is possible.

All our dreams are possible and we can set our sights on any destination we want. Others around us may not believe we can succeed, and may try to dissuade us from pursuing a goal out of fear that we’ll fail. It doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks. We don’t need agreement or permission to go after our dreams. We may take any advice we like, and then continue forward toward the goals we’ve chosen. We are powerful and capable, and nothing is out of reach.

Believing we can win is the first step in every endeavor. If we aren’t sure we can manage it, and think we’ll try but feel pretty confident we won’t prevail, we will fail. It’s unlikely we’ll accomplish anything despite ourselves. Generally, if we don’t think we can do something, odds are we won’t be able to do it. However, if we are determined to prevail, and decide we’ll push through whatever may be in the way, nothing will keep us from our goal. There isn’t any destination too far away, or accomplishment too difficult for us to manage. We are strong and wise, and can have the lives we want.

Today if you’re facing a big challenge and don’t feel confident you can overcome the obstacles in front of you, remember how strong and powerful you are. You are more capable than you think you are, and can do anything you decide to do. Be confident and step forward. The goal is reachable and nothing will keep you from it. All your dreams can come true, and you will prevail.

Glue

9 Aug

When we have two things we want to stick together, glue is a very useful tool. We all use it from time to time, and when we need it, nothing else will do. As we go through our lives we’ll meet and make connections with all kinds of people, make decisions that will take us to many different places, and choose every road we want to travel. We may build relationships that help us move forward, and take us to the destinations we desire. However, it’s also possible the relationships we value may hold us in place. Tradition and custom carry a lot of power and some people believe they must be honored and maintained no matter the cost. If we’re close to our families or loved ones, and they want to keep everything the same as it’s always been, it may be hard for us to do anything outside their norm. They may pressure us to conform to the traditional model and we may feel we can’t move and are glued in place. Trying to make others happy may keep us from achieving the goals we most desire. It would be easy if we all wanted the same things and agreed on every step ahead, but that will never be the case. We’re all unique and deserve to live our lives authentically, in ways that express our individuality and personal choices. Traditions and customs have a place and we can honor them, but our lives are ours alone and we can design them any way we like. Nothing can hold us in place if we’re determined to move. We can be respectful of others, recognize and value their decisions, and still make our own. Our destinies are ours to choose. We can go anywhere and do anything. We can have the lives we dream about, and find great success.

Keeping things the same and following roads that have been traveled well by those around us may bring comfort and security. But there are unlimited roads to travel and endless destinations to choose. Limiting ourselves to what is known and commonplace will only bring us experiences that are known and commonplace. If we all did the same things, life would be stagnant and boring. We can reach beyond where we are, step onto new roads and make them ours. The whole world is there for us, and we can reach further and achieve more.

Most of us like ice cream. It’s sweet and delicious, and there are endless flavors we can choose. Of course, we can always get vanilla. We’ve had it many times before and know what to expect. But limiting ourselves to only one closes the door to the exciting experiences we could have by trying something new. A life filled with repetition may bring some satisfaction, but will never fulfill our fondest dreams or help us reach our most treasured goals. By choosing what we want most and traveling the roads that will take us there, we can make our dreams come true and live the lives we want.

Today if you’re being pressured to keep things the same and stick with what’s known, remember your life is valuable and you can make your dreams reality. You are not glued in place. Nothing is out of reach and every goal you desire is possible. Look ahead and choose the road you want the most. Step forward and reach further. You can make your dreams come true, and every success is possible.

The Gift

8 Aug

We have all kinds of responsibilities and tasks to get done. Some are routine and we’re used to managing them, but other stuff comes up and if we’re facing something difficult or unpleasant, we may put it off and try to avoid it. We don’t want to look at it, we don’t want to deal with it, and we would love someone else to volunteer to take it off our hands. When we have a lot to carry, it would be very convenient to hand everything that’s weighing on us over to someone else and walk away. Just leave it with them and let them deal with it. We can try that and we might be able to get rid of a few things but nobody is going to forget the little gift we gave them, and in time, they may bring us an even bigger one to deal with in return. Fair is fair, and if we expect others to take care of our crap, we have to be willing to take care of theirs. Since there is no way to know how big their issues might be, it’s better to stand firm, and manage the issues we have on our own. It doesn’t usually work to push our problems off on others but that doesn’t mean others won’t try to push their troublesome tasks off onto us. If we’re open and welcoming, they may simply hand them off and ask us to take care of them. We might be okay with that once in a while, but if it becomes habit, it might seriously impact our time and our relationship. Everyone is responsible for their own lives and their own responsibilities. We don’t have to solve anyone else’s problems or carry their burdens for them. Our lives will bring us enough to manage, and if we manage it well, and take care of things as they arise, we will feel great satisfaction as we move forward. Our confidence will rise and we’ll find great success.

Some people need more attention and help than others. They may be unsure of their abilities, need more information, they may be confused, or they may just be lazy. Whatever the case, if we’re asked to help, we can certainly step up and try to assist. But helping with an issue isn’t taking ownership of it. The problem does not belong to us and we are never responsible for solving it. We can help where possible and offer any advice we may have, and allow those who own the problem to find the answers they need.

There are all kinds of problems and complications in life. Nobody can solve them all or save anyone else. We can take care of our own issues and, when possible, help those around us take care of theirs. We are strong enough for anything our life brings, and can solve any problem or face any trial that arises. If asked, we can help those around us, but we can never carry the load for everyone else. We can be considerate and try to assist, but the responsibility for the success of others lies with them. We can take care of our responsibilities, share when we can, and find great success and happiness moving forward.

Today if someone has asked you take on a problem that belongs to them, you need not agree. Be helpful, but let others manage their own issues, and give the gift of self-reliance. You are incredible and wise, and we’re all enriched by your presence. Set the best example moving forward and the whole world will benefit.
