The Switch

19 Aug

Everyone is different and we all have our own personal goals and dreams we want to achieve. Every option is possible and if we work hard, and stay focused on moving ahead, chances are we’ll find great success. Our personalities and choices are a result of many factors – how we were raised, where we’ve been, what we’ve experienced so far, and a million other things. Although we can do anything we want, who we are, how we act and how we see the world may complicate something we’re trying to achieve. There may be a time when what we’re doing will not allow us to move toward what we want. If we’re very shy and reserved and the goal requires us to be bold and move forward with power and intense determination, we may struggle to push ahead. If we’re loud and ambitious, and the goal requires a gentle touch and a soft hand, we may have trouble figuring out how to advance. Everyone has their own special and unique talents, but nobody is completely perfect for every desired role. We are in control of our lives and if we want the goal, can make any changes necessary to get there. We may have to switch our thinking around in specific ways, and alter our responses and behaviors in order to do what is needed to prevail. Making personal changes isn’t pretending. If we want the goal, we may actually have to change something. There isn’t anything we can’t do and we are the only ones who can keep us from reaching any goal. We know what we want. The question is – Are we willing to do what is needed to achieve it? Once we decide how we want to proceed, we can pave the road ahead and push forward toward success. We can do anything and every dream is possible. With determination, focus and clarity, nothing can keep us from success.

Some people use the excuse “That’s just how I am,” to explain some behavior or choice they made that didn’t work out. We can always blame our choices on the patterns we’ve adopted and repeated throughout our lives, and blame bad decisions on endless outside issues. We can repeat the same mistake endlessly and deal with the consequences over and over again. But until we face the situation openly, look at how our choices have affected the outcomes, and then switch our behaviors around to something more beneficial, we may never find success. Our happiness is our own responsibility. With careful thought and preparation, we can make excellent choices that will take us where we most want to go, and find great happiness and satisfaction.

Traditions and routines are comfortable. We know them, we’re used to how they feel, and it’s easy to keep repeating them. Because they are familiar, we may stick with them even if they don’t bring us what we most desire. We can stay in the same, thankless job, remain in relationships that aren’t working, and continue down the same road indefinitely. Nothing will change until we do something different. Our lives belong solely to us. If we want something more, we can get it, but if we want to go somewhere else, we must be willing to let go of where we are. There isn’t anything we can’t do once we decide. Every single destination is possible, and we can reach them all.

Today if you’ve been trying to move closer to a goal but are struggling to move forward, look at what is needed to succeed, and make the necessary changes so you can win. You are amazing and powerful. Nothing is too difficult for you to achieve. Be confident and trust yourself. The whole world is there for you and every dream is waiting. Step forward and make them yours.

Lipstick

25 Nov

Life is unpredictable and things aren’t always what they seem. When we first think about something we want to do and explore our options, it may seem logical and easy to accomplish. But sometimes what looks good at the beginning changes as we move ahead, and what we thought was going to happen doesn’t. As we continue forward, we may discover the destination doesn’t look anything like what we bargained for. Even if we did everything we could before we started, we can’t know what isn’t available, and may face moments of sincere disappointment for the way things end up. We can try to make the best of things when our plans fall through, and everything goes south. We can put on a happy face, and pretend things are better than they. But if you put lipstick on a pig, it’s still a pig. Life is constantly changing and nothing is permanent. If we end up somewhere we don’t want to be, we don’t have to stay there. We can look at the options possible, decide what we want to do next, and begin again. It doesn’t matter if it’s complicated, or will take a lot of time to rearrange the road ahead.  We deserve complete happiness and if where we are doesn’t bring it, we can move. There will always be other options available, and we can change anything we desire. Sitting tight and hoping somehow things will magically improve will never work. If we want something different, we can go get it. We have all the wisdom and courage to accomplish anything we want. We don’t have to go along to keep things the same, or agree with anything we don’t desire. Our lives belong to us and we can design them however we want. We can step away, choose any path before us, and move toward something else. We already know what we want, and have everything we need to get it.

We can only see what’s visible and there is no way to know what the next turn will bring. Even when we plan carefully, things can go awry and we may end up in foreign territory. There are always unforeseen complications, and sometimes what we couldn’t see takes us someplace far different than we thought we’d reach. If the new destination is appealing and we like the scenery, we can stay. But if we want something different, we can simply move right on through and onto something else.

Some people may encourage us to endure a situation we’re uncomfortable with in the interest of ease or conformity. They may tell us we’ll get used to it and learn to adjust. While it’s true we can adjust to any situation before us, we never have to give up our happiness to make others comfortable. We deserve the best of everything we desire, and with determination and focus, we will achieve it.

Today if the end of the road isn’t what you’re seeking, there are endless other opportunities possible. You never have to settle for what you don’t want. You are intelligent and highly capable, and every dream is possible. If you want something else, change direction and start again. Nothing can keep you from success. You are amazing and strong, and will reach every goal you desire.
