Change Direction

12 Jun

There are unlimited things we can accomplish in our lives and there isn’t anything we can’t achieve. We know ourselves better than anyone else ever could, but we never know what will happen next. We can’t see the future, and there is no way to see what’s around the next corner. Although we’re in control of every decision we make, we can’t control anything else that happens. We are strong and capable, and if we’re on the road toward a goal we want to achieve, and are persistent and diligent, it’s likely we’ll succeed. But change is constant, and our ideas and desires are always in flux. We continually modify how we feel about our lives and what’s happening around us, and review all the possibilities and options we might pursue. As we grow and learn, at some point, we may decide we no longer want something we’ve been working toward. Maybe we’ve outgrown the need for the goal, or our experiences have taught us new things that make it no longer desirable. A change a of heart can happen at any time, and if it does, we’ll need to decide how we want to proceed. We never have to continue on any path we no longer want. It doesn’t matter how much time or energy we’ve invested, or how far we’ve come. We can change direction and go another way. If we no longer want the goal, we can step away and move toward something else. Our dreams are ours alone, and we always know what we want. If we’re true to our unique desires, we can have the lives we dream about. Our lives are ours to design, and we can create them any way we like. All options are there for us, and we will reach every destination.

Our time is very valuable. How we spend it will determine where we go and what we accomplish. We can do anything, and if we want to, can continually go from one idea to the next, never staying long enough to accomplish anything. If we do, we may find years have gone by and we haven’t achieved any goal. There are many distractions all around us all the time. It’s not possible to do everything that piques our interest. By specifically choosing exactly what we want to do, and then working toward the goal with focus and attention, we can accomplish anything and move forward with confidence and clarity.

Sometimes we have no control over changes that come into our lives. The road we’ve been on may suddenly disappear because of circumstances out of our control. If we can’t move forward, we can change direction and find another road. If the goal simply isn’t possible at this time, we can set it down, and move onto something new. Putting something on hold isn’t abandoning it and giving up. We can wait until our situation changes and start again. Every goal is possible. With patience and conviction, we really can have the lives we want, and make our dreams come true.

Today if your desires have changed and you no longer want to continue toward a goal you’ve been working on, decide what you want the most, and change direction. Your life is yours to design. Choose the destinations you desire most and step forward. Every dream is possible, and you have all you need to make them yours.

Busy Busy

30 Apr

There are endless roads available to us that lead to unlimited destinations. We can go anywhere we want, and every option is possible. When we have our eyes focused on the way forward toward a goal we want to achieve, each step takes us closer to success. But life is full of distractions, problems, complications, and unexpected developments that may divert our attention away from what we want the most. There are lots of shiny things to capture us, people coming and going who may pull us in different directions, and countless details to figure out that may hold us in place. If we engage in all the activity around us, we may be very busy, but that doesn’t necessarily mean we’re moving ahead. Being busy doesn’t always translate to success. We can spend all our time doing lots of things that demand our attention and at the end of the day, still be in the same place as when we started. There is no end to things that need to be done, but if we want to get to the destinations we truly desire, we must carefully weigh our choices to ensure we do what we must while still moving toward our goals. Our lives are important and every dream is possible, but we must do what is needed to make them ours. Going here and there, doing endless tasks, and staying busy will not guarantee success. If we want to prevail, we must take control of our time and keep the destination in focus. Life is full of surprises and there will be times when we must set everything aside to take care of a pressing matter. Setting a goal aside isn’t abandoning it and as soon as the situation changes, we can re-focus and start again. We can go anywhere and do anything we desire. We have all the wisdom and courage we need to create the lives we want the most, and reach success.

Unless we live on a deserted island, there will likely be lots of people all around us most of the time. We have friends, co-workers, family members, associates, acquaintances, and people we see only in passing. They may need us from time to time and we can certainly help out if asked. It’s good to be supportive and lend a helping hand, but we need not allow our beneficence to take over our lives. There is no need to completely sacrifice our own desires in an effort to help those around us. We can give our time in ways that benefit others and still allow us to accomplish our personal goals.

Everyone has their own opinions about how things should be done. If we have a relationship with them, and they are in need, they may expect us to abandon our plans and devote all our energies to helping them. We can do that if we like, but we never have to give more than we’re comfortable with. It isn’t selfish to manage our time in ways that help out and still allow us to continue forward. We’re intelligent and capable, and nothing is beyond our reach. We can focus on the road ahead, and reach every goal we desire.

Today if you’re busy with lots of details that are keeping you from the goals you desire most, step back and look at everything objectively. Plan your time wisely, and continue ahead. You are amazing and powerful, and can do anything you desire. All your dreams are possible, and you have everything you need to make them yours.

In the Way

4 Dec

Life can be complicated and no matter what we’re trying to do, rarely will we be able to accomplish it without something getting in the way. Getting from point A to point B may seem simple when we start out but we can never see all the possible hang-ups and detours waiting for us on the road ahead. They appear and block our way, sometimes quite unexpectedly, and when they do, we must decide what our next moves will be. If there are continual problems and nothing seems to move us forward, we might begin to rethink our plans. We can always abandon the journey and let go of the goal if we’ve had enough hassle. We can give up and change our plans anytime we like, but walking away will never get us where we want to go. No matter how complex and convoluted the situation may get, there will always be a solution that opens the way ahead. The answers may not be obvious and we may have to dig to find them, but they will always be there. We must decide how important the goal is and if it’s worth it to us to continue. Success requires effort, and we are the only ones who can determine if the effort is worth the prize. If it is, no matter what we have to push through, we can find our way forward. There isn’t anything strong enough to hold us back if we’re determined to press on. The struggles we encounter will make us stronger and every solution we find will give us more information for the road ahead. We learn as we go, and nothing can keep us from succeeding. There are endless problems that can muddy the works and things will always get in the way. But we are wise and capable of understanding even the most complex situations. Every goal is possible and we can move forward with confidence that we will reach our destination.

Everyone is different and we all have ideas about what we should do. If the road we’re on has a lot of problems and trouble, those around us may encourage us to move on to something else. They may tell us to let go of the goal and find something easier. We can take any advice we like, and abandon our plans, but stopping will never take us to the destinations we desire. We’re in control of what we do, and if we want something, even something hard to achieve, we can manage what is needed to succeed.

Timing is important no matter what we’re doing. Sometimes the goal we seek isn’t possible when we want it. There may be extenuating circumstances we can’t control, putting the goal beyond our reach right now. But nothing stays the same forever, and in time, our situation will change, and we can try again. We can be patient and watch carefully until an opening appears. Every destination is possible, and with planning and determination, we can go anywhere and accomplish anything.

Today if you’ve been trying to move forward and there is always something else in the way, think about the situation objectively. Look at every option possible and decide on your next move. You are powerful and strong, and have all the wisdom and understanding you need to prevail. Choose how you will proceed, and be confident. Nothing is too complicated for you to understand. Every destination is possible and you will succeed.
