Rescue

17 Mar

Every day we face new challenges and experiences. We never know what will happen next, and we may be taken by surprise when something completely unexpected comes. We’re strong and wise, and can manage our lives well, but we might face a time where what we’re facing is so daunting and unsettling, we aren’t sure how we’re going to get through. If the trial is extremely difficult and we’re pressed trying to figure out our next step, we may wish for someone to come along and rescue us. It’s natural to want someone else to take away what’s hurting or causing us struggle, and we can certainly wish for that, but most of the time it probably won’t happen. Our lives are completely our own responsibility, and we must face whatever is required of us. If the situation is more than we want to deal with, we can try to ignore it. Looking away may change our view, but it will never solve the problem. Every complication will wait in place until we turn back and face it. We have all the courage we need to look at everything openly. If we need help or advice to move forward, we can find it. The guidance and support we need will always be there for us. We can find all the answers we need and are resourceful enough, and smart enough, to resolve any situation before us, no matter how difficult or complicated it may be. We have already faced and conquered many problems and issues successfully. We can be self-reliant and continue to find our way. Nothing is too hard for us to manage, and we can be sure of success.

If we’re on a boat and fall overboard, someone may throw us a life saver. We can grab onto it and it will hold us up until we’re able to get back to safety. In our lives, if we fall into difficulty we may feel as if we’ve fallen overboard and struggle to stay afloat. If there is no one to save us, we may believe we’re doomed to fail. We’re in control of our lives, and our futures are never written in advance. We will never be in a situation where there is no way to get through. There will always be a way forward, and we can trust ourselves and be confident we will find it.

Nobody starts out with all the answers. Even if we’re very smart, we will never know everything. Confusing and complex times will come, unforeseen problems will arise, and we may feel overwhelmed and lost trying to figure out how to get through. We can take the time we need to see everything clearly, and then with patience and focus, decide on the best way forward. We can rely on our wisdom and experience to guide us and trust ourselves to prevail. Nothing is really out of reach. We can be sure we will find every answer we need.

Today if you’re facing a big challenge and there are a lot of unknown variables complicating the situation, remember how capable and wise you are. Everything may look unclear at first, but you have all the tools you need to find the way forward. Be confident and trust yourself. You are amazing and strong, and nothing can keep you from success. Step forward with clarity. Everything is possible, and you will win.

Breaking Apart

13 Mar

Lots of things go right in our lives every single day. Sometimes everything sails along without a care, and we’re relaxed and happy. Change is always constant and nothing can remain the same forever, and eventually something will modify our plans, and our lives may be turned toward difficulty or pain. Bad experiences will come our way whether we’re ready for them or not. Life is filled with all kinds of undefined complications, and when they hit us out of the blue, we may feel lost and broken for a time. Everything we thought we could count on may break apart, and we may be left standing alone, bereft and uncertain. It may feel our world has dissolved in front of us and we have no idea how to continue on. Bad things may happen, we may be devastated, and the road ahead may be fuzzy and unclear. It’s not easy to find our footing when it feels like the rug has been pulled out from under us and we’re standing in mid-air, struggling to touch the ground. Even in our most difficult times, we always have what we need to survive. We have incredible reserves of courage and stamina inside ourselves, and when we need them, can reach deep and claim them. There will never be a time when things get so bad that we’ll crumble and disappear. We are stronger than we imagine, and nothing, absolutely nothing can hold us down. Every road will always be there for us, and with determination and strength, we will find our way. Nothing can keep us from our dreams, and no matter what comes, we will succeed.

A bad personal breakup can be devastating. If our feelings for the one leaving us are deep and intimate, we may struggle to breathe when they walk away. The pain may be intense and for a moment, we may think we can’t survive. But as each day passes, we get stronger, and in time, we recover. How long that takes depends on a lot of variables, but no matter if it’s one week, one month, or a whole year, we will get through. We can take things one step at a time, and build on each success until we feel whole and complete once again.

When everything changes all at once we may need time to process what’s happened and figure out what to do next. We can’t do everything at the same time. If we step back, and take a breath, we can let our minds rest for moment. There will always be many possible options for the way forward, and we can look at them all and decide which is best. We can’t control what will come to us, but we always have control over ourselves. We know what we want and with patience, and persistence, we will find our way.

Today if your world has tilted and everything has broken apart, take the time you need to see everything clearly. Life is uncertain, but you are strong and nothing can hold you in place. Consider every possible road ahead, and choose your next steps. You are incredible and strong, and every dream is still there for you. Have faith. You will prevail.

Shoot for the Moon

12 Mar

There are all kinds of goals we want to accomplish in our lives. We know what we want and where we want to go, and can plan to achieve anything we desire. When we push forward and do what’s needed to complete something we want, there is great satisfaction when we get there. Every goal is possible but if we’re highly motivated and desperate to succeed, we may make plans that are beyond our reach. If we set our sites on completing something in ways that are impossible to achieve, we sabotage ourselves. For instance, if we want to lose twenty pounds we can, but setting a time frame of two weeks to get it done is likely going to fail. We can push for more success at work but deciding we’re going to be the CEO or president of the company within the first year of being hired – also probably not going to work. We can shoot for the moon, but we must remember the moon is very far away. We can get there, but we must plan in ways that allow us to reach it. We can be excited and motivated, and still make reasonable and workable plans that enable us to succeed. Of course, anything could happen and we might get lucky. The planets may align for us, everything may go our way, and somehow, we may manage to accomplish the impossible. But holding out for that is a fool’s errand. We can do anything we want if we plan our way forward effectively, and in ways that enable us to accomplish the goal we desire. We can leave the pipe dreams in the pipe, and choose a clear, and sustainable way forward. We have all the intelligence and wisdom we need to achieve anything we desire. Every goal is possible, and we will succeed.

It’s fun to dream about incredible and amazing things that could happen to us and change our lives in ways we desire. Fantasy can be anything we want it to be, but we don’t live in fantasy land, we live in the real world. Our dreams won’t suddenly come true because we’re wishing for them, and our lives won’t change in positive ways on their own. We can have the lives we dream about, but we must plan for them, and then work to make them ours. Every goal is possible, and with determination, and thoughtfulness, we can achieve them.

When we don’t reach a goal, we may blame ourselves. We may feel we didn’t work hard enough or fast enough to make it ours. That could be true, but sometimes we’re not the problem, the goal is. If we’ve set the parameters too high to achieve, or too fast to accomplish, we will fail. Failure doesn’t mean we aren’t good enough to reach the goal, but that the way we tried didn’t work. We can reset our focus, redesign our plan, and try again. There isn’t anything too far or too difficult for us to achieve. We have everything we need to succeed, and we will win.

Today if you’re trying to push beyond what’s possible in an effort to accomplish a goal, think about the best way forward. You are intelligent and wise, and can devise a plan that will take you to success. Every goal is possible, and you have everything you need to prevail. Choose the road that will take you to the destination, and step forward. You are amazing and capable, and nothing can keep you from success.

The Road

11 Mar

Everyday something new happens and we can’t see what’s coming next. There is no way to anticipate the unknown. All we can do is take one step at a time and face whatever presents itself as it arises. All roads have a destination and the road we’re on is going somewhere. If we’ve chosen the way ahead the destination may be clear and obvious. It’s easy to plan when we know the way forward and where it will lead. But life is uncertain and sometimes we get turned around and pointed in directions we never intended to go. People make decisions that affect us, things go wrong, unexpected events derail our plans, and endless other possibilities can knock us off course. If we’ve been pushed onto a path we didn’t choose, we may be uncertain about what will happen and unsure where we’ll end up. Foreign roads can be unsettling. When the terrain is unknown, and we can’t see ahead, it’s hard to know what to do. If we’re facing something we’ve never been through before and there is trouble and complications, we may feel lost and untethered as we try to find our footing. Stepping into the unknown isn’t easy, but we can trust ourselves and remember how strong and capable we are. We may feel lost for a moment, but we will find our way. The road may be unclear and murky ahead, but with each step we will see a little more. We have all the courage and wisdom we need to find our way through anything. Nothing is strong enough or confusing enough to hold us in place indefinitely. We’ll find the way forward, and in time, reach success.

There is no way to know everything ahead of time. Even when we plan carefully and chart our course with clarity and wisdom, things may go awry. There will always be many unknowns in every scenario. When the road turns unexpectedly, we may face problems that tangle up our plans and stop us in place. We can take the time standing still to look at all the options ahead and find the opening we need to continue forward. Things may go wrong, trouble may come, and everything may go up in smoke, but we are intelligent and wise, and will find our way through.

Sometimes things happen that completely derail our plans for the future. Everything we wanted to accomplish may suddenly be impossible, and all our ideas will no longer work. When that happens, we can sit down in frustration and refuse to move, or we can review every available option and find a new way to move forward. If we want to continue ahead, nothing will ever be powerful enough to stop us. Every dream is still there for us, and when we’re ready, we will make them ours.

Today if you’re on a road you don’t want to travel but can’t step away, be patient. Change is constant and soon you’ll be able to chart your own course. You are smart enough to manage any complication and find your way forward. Every dream is possible and with clarity and wisdom, you will gain the life you want the most. You are powerful and intelligent. Step forward with confidence. Nothing can keep you from success, and you will prevail.

Success

10 Mar

We all want strong, fulfilling lives that move us toward what we want the most and bring us happiness. While that is always possible, we must first decide what we want. Many people say they want success, but just saying we want to be successful means nothing. It’s an obscure thought without definition or plan. What does success mean? Is it all about monetary benefits where we have all the money we want and need? Or is it something defined by accomplishing a certain level of excellence in some area, or reaching some defined goal? Whatever it is for each of us, if we want to achieve it, we must make a plan for getting there. How can we reach the goal? What must we do and where must we go? What needs to be done to pave the way forward? What changes, if any, must we make to reach it? An undefined and unspecified goal is impossible to reach. We must clearly decide what we want, and determine how we’ll get it. Once we define those things, we can begin to move ahead toward the goal. We can be as successful as we desire if we’re willing to do what is necessary to reach the goal we want. If we stay focused and continue to push forward, we will prevail. We can have the lives we dream about but they won’t just happen. Success won’t simply fall into our laps because we’re nice, or because we really want it. We must plan and then work to get what we want. Everything is possible and nothing is too difficult to accomplish. We already possess all the strength and courage we need to do anything we desire. Our lives are ours to design. With determination and focus, we can go anywhere and reach any goal.

The world is filled with endless opportunities and possibilities. There are limitless things to do and countless places to go. We’re in control of our lives but if we don’t know what we want, we may spend a lot of time standing still. The options are endless but if we stand still, we cannot experience anything new. New experiences enrich us and give us greater depth and understanding of the world around us. We can trust ourselves to step forward and open a new door. We can have the lives we dream about by taking a step forward and making it ours.

Many people equate success with money. While money can do a lot, it doesn’t create true happiness. It’s just a tool that unlocks a lot of doors. Personal happiness comes when we’re successful in the things we value. When we have strong, healthy relationships with those around us and do what fulfills us, happiness will follow. We can have deep, rich lives, and reach every goal we desire if we focus on what we want the most, and then do what is needed to get there. We deserve complete happiness, and with determination we will reach it.

Today if you’ve decided what you want the most, make a plan to achieve it and step forward. Nothing is out of reach and you can have the life you dream about. You are powerful and strong, and nothing is beyond your reach. Be confident. You will succeed and nothing can hold you down. Every dream is possible and you will win.

Hats

9 Mar

Our lives are filled with endless opportunities for growth, change and the ability to move ahead. We can decide what we want, and then look at all the ways forward that will take us there. We have many talents and each day we get the chance to do something new. Like trying on different hats, we can choose which we like and what fits before we move forward. Some hats may be too big, and at the first gust of wind, blow away never to be seen again. Some may be too restricting and uncomfortable, and it’s difficult to get them on and wear them for any period of time. However, some hats will fit us perfectly, and we can put them on and wear them with confidence moving forward. Our lives and the things we do reflect all the choices we make and the goals we want to achieve. We are highly capable and can do anything we set our minds to, but there may be times when what we want to accomplish doesn’t fit into our lives at this time. If we’re too busy, that hat may be too tight. If we haven’t clearly defined what we want to accomplish, it may be too loose, and we need to wait until we have a better idea of what we want to do. Not everything is possible when we want to do it. If the goal isn’t available right now, we may need to set it aside until things change. We can review our objectives, look at all the options possible and then decide what works best for us. Life is long and there will always be many opportunities available to us. Once we decide what we want, we can plan the way forward and move toward the goal. Everything is possible, and with patience, determination, and focus, we can have the lives we want the most.

Everyone is different and we all have varying talents and gifts that enhance our lives and the lives of those around us. Our individual contributions are what make the world interesting and rich with differences and interpretations. Some are good at one thing, some at another, and each offering adds something new to the equation. Nobody can do everything well, but altogether we can blend our talents and create something amazing and incredible. Every idea has worth and value, and working in tandem can bring about results beyond our imagining. We are powerful and wise, and bring great depth to the world around us.

We’re all good at many things but nobody is good at everything. Maybe the negotiation hat doesn’t fit us well, but we’re good at listening. Maybe we can’t manage the technical realm but we’re excellent at interpersonal communications. Understanding where our talents lie, and then making the most of them will enrich our lives and pave the road ahead. We all have a lot to offer. Recognizing our unique gifts and sharing them with those around us will bring us great depth and understanding.

Today, look at all the possibilities before you and decide what you want the most. Make a plan and take the first steps forward. You are smarter and stronger than you imagine, and every goal is possible. Choose your destination and with determination and focus, move toward it. Nothing can keep you from success. Be confident. You can make your dreams come true. Every goal is possible, and you will win.

Fearless

6 Mar

Life is unpredictable and we never know what will happen next. Things go right, and things go wrong. Sometimes we’re surprised by a turn of events, and when they turn in ways that are difficult or daunting, we may be concerned or fearful we cannot face them. A lot can go wrong when we least expect it and if the rug is quickly pulled out from under us, we may be stunned and for a moment be unable to move. Fear is a natural emotion we all experience from time to time. Even the most courageous and brave among us is not immune. Our innate fight or flight reflex will be triggered at some point, and we may be rattled. When we’re unsure and worried, when the future is uncertain, and we don’t know what to do next, fear often enters the equation. It can paralyze us and make it impossible to think. But we are intelligent and have all the wisdom we need to figure out any problem or complication. It doesn’t matter if everything goes wrong, it doesn’t matter if the road we were on has disappeared, or if what’s happened is beyond what we can process right now. There will always be options before us and every answer we need will be there. We can take the time necessary to consider everything, decide on our next steps and confidently choose what we will do. Nobody is fearless, but when fear comes, we need not let it overcome us. We are more powerful than we think we are, and nothing can hold us down indefinitely. The future is always unknown, but nothing will happen we can’t manage. Every goal will still be there for us, even if we have to reconfigure how we’ll reach it. Life may throw us for a loop, but we are flexible and smart, and can bend to adjust. The destinations we desire are still there, and with confidence and assurance, we will reach them.

We’re always in control of ourselves and our personal lives, but we have no control over anything else. Illness, calamity, accidents, unforeseen roadblocks, and endless other complications will come. Even if we sequestered ourselves and tried to hide from the world, there would still be risk of some sort that things will go wrong. Nothing is ever certain and change is constant. But we are strong and capable, and can trust ourselves to manage whatever we must, and find our way through.

There is no way to know what tomorrow will bring. Even if we try to prepare, everything may change and all our preparations may be for naught. Our plans may fail, others may let us down, and at times it may feel the whole world is conspiring against us. It will never be true that there is no way out. There will always be another door and another road ahead. We can be sure of our ability to find the answers we need, and move forward with determination and confidence. We already have everything we need to accomplish our goals, and find complete happiness.

Today if your world has been rattled and you’re afraid you won’t succeed, trust yourself. You are smarter and more capable than you think. There isn’t anything you can’t do. Be sure of yourself, and step forward with confidence. Everything is possible, and nothing can keep you from success.
