Tights and a Cape

8 May

Life is filled with challenges and opportunities that teach us new things and give us more information about the road ahead. Sometimes things roll along with little trouble, and other times it seems like everything that can go wrong is going wrong. Nobody gets a free pass on problems. They come to all of us, and when they do, we must find our way through them. We may wish for a life of ease where every day is like a holiday, but if we actually had lives like that, we would learn nothing about ourselves or the world around us. Thankfully, wishes aren’t reality, and we’re going to struggle from time to time. When we’re in the midst of trouble and feel overwhelmed, the answers we need will be there but they may not be obvious. Some answers require us to dig deep and search for them. During times like those it would be terrific if Superman was real, and could show up and just solve everything for us. Unfortunately, if we want tights and a cape to save us, we’ll have to provide them ourselves. We might have to search diligently, and ask for help to find our way through, but we are smart and perfectly capable of managing any issue that’s complicating our lives. Things will go wrong, we will stumble, our plans may disintegrate, and we might find ourselves somewhere we never wanted to go. But we are creative and wise, and there isn’t anything that can hold us down indefinitely. The answers will be there for us and with patience and determination, we will find them. We are capable of incredible success, and nothing is strong enough to keep us from it. Every problem can be solved, and we have everything we need to prevail.

When we’re struggling with something difficult, we may reach out to those around us for help and support. Everyone has different experiences and if we’re facing something new, chances are there will be someone who has already traveled that road, or who can point us in the right direction. If we’re very independent, we may choose to find the answers on our own. We can always do that, but it may take more time and effort than if we reach out for help. Asking for help doesn’t mean we’re weak or can’t do things on our own. We all have a different collection of skills. We can get advice from someone who knows the way forward until we gain our own expertise.

When we’re facing a hard challenge, there may be some who’ll tell us we’ll never prevail and we should just give up and forget it. We can take any advice we like, but we are stronger and more powerful than we think we are. There really isn’t anything we can’t manage. By confidently stepping forward even when we’re unsure, we can open the doors ahead and find our way to success. Life is full of opportunities and we have all the courage and wisdom we need to reach any destination we desire.

Today if you’re facing a difficult challenge and are unsure about how to proceed, trust yourself. You’ve already overcome many difficult problems and you have everything you need to solve any complication. You are intelligent and wise, and nothing is too hard for you to manage. Look forward and step ahead with confidence. Success is there, waiting for you to arrive, and you will reach it.

Seeing the End

31 Oct

Every goal we want to achieve is possible. We can go anywhere, do anything, and accomplish whatever we desire. Every dream is available if we’re willing to do what is necessary to make it ours. If we can imagine it, we can achieve it. But in order to get to the end of any road and reach our goals, we must be able to visualize it. It’s impossible to reach anything undefined. If we want to actually achieve a goal, we must understand exactly what it is we’re trying to reach and see the end from the beginning. We might really desire success, but being successful is an undefined destination. Before we can reach it, we must decide exactly what we want to be successful doing, and then step forward and begin to move toward the goal. It’s impossible to reach any destination when we don’t know where we’re going. Once we define our destination, we can make a plan for the road ahead, and step forward with confidence that we will succeed. Dreams are nice and we can dream about how we want our lives to be as long as we like. However, if we want those dreams to become reality, we must clearly determine what it will take to make them happen, and then do what is needed. We are highly capable and everything we desire is possible. We can have the lives we want the most, and go anywhere we want to go. Every destination is there, waiting for us. We can trust ourselves to do what it takes to reach them, and find great satisfaction and joy in our success.

Everyone wants to be happy but our happiness is our responsibility. Other people can’t give it to us and although some situations will bring it, they are fleeting and soon gone. If we want real, sustained happiness we must design our lives in ways that make it possible. Doing things the way others expect and putting off our dreams will not create it. Our lives belong to us and we can do anything we like. Choosing paths that take us where we most want to go, and doing what we most want to do will bring us lasting and fulfilling happiness.

We can’t control what happens to us, what others will do, or how most things will roll out. We only have control over our own decisions and the choices we make define who we are and where we go. We can listen to the counsel of others and take whatever advice we like, but our choices belong solely to us. The road ahead is determined by the decisions we make. We can create our own future by making choices that take us where we most want to go. Nothing is too far to reach. Every success is possible and with determination and focus, we can go anywhere and do anything.

Today if you’ve been going along with what others think is best for you, step back and look at every possibility. You can have the life you dream about. Envision the destinations you want to reach, and then take the first step toward them. You are amazing and strong, and can do anything you desire. Be confident and move ahead with clarity and determination. Your life is yours to design, and complete happiness is there for you. Step forward, and claim it.

The Third Law

28 May

Newton’s third law of physics tells us that for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. Nothing in life happens in a vacuum and every decision we make brings a result. As we make choices, we may have a good idea what the result will be based on what we know about the situation and what we’ve chosen, or we may not know where our decision will take us. But they all take us somewhere. There is no way to remain where we are as we step forward on the road ahead. Everyone wants to make good choices, and for the most part we will. But sometimes if the circumstances are confusing, or we get inaccurate information, or our emotions influence us in ways that don’t work, we may choose badly. When we take the first step on any road, we will inevitably end up where that road leads. Every journey has a destination and if it’s somewhere we don’t want to go, it’s up to us to step off the road we’re on, and go in another direction. It’s unlikely others will intercede and move us onto a better path. We’re in charge of our lives, and are responsible for every choice we make. Even if we feel swept along and pressured to continue on the wrong road, we can always step away and choose another path. Nobody knows us better than we know ourselves, and we have all the courage and determination we need to direct our lives toward the destinations we desire most. There are unlimited choices to make, and with patience and wisdom, we can find the roads that take us where we most want to go. Our lives are ours to design. We need never go along or follow others. We know what we want and have everything we need to get it. We can choose our own journey and reach any goal we desire. Nothing is out of reach and we can make all our dreams a reality.

Some people may think they know what’s best for us. They may constantly give us direction or try to persuade us to do things they feel will take us where we need to go. They are certainly entitled to their opinions, and we can listen to their advice if we like. However, our lives belong to us and we are the only ones who have complete understanding about what we need and what we want. We can choose the road ahead even if it’s different from what others recommend, and move forward with confidence and clarity.

There is no way to see the end of any road from the beginning. Even if we plan well and choose the best possible option at the beginning, things may change and we may find we aren’t headed where we most want to go. Learning to turn and adjust our trajectory with each new development will enable us to reach the destinations we desire and help us find success. Life is all about change and we are certainly flexible enough and wise enough to navigate the road ahead to ensure we find success.

Today if you’ve made a decision that isn’t taking you where you want to go, stop and look at all the options possible. Find the road that leads you to success and start again. There isn’t any destination you can’t reach. Choose your next steps carefully and begin. Every road is there for you and you can do anything. Be confident and step forward. Success is waiting for you and you will reach it.

Done and Moving On

Done

While we’re going through our days accomplishing tasks, tending to responsibilities, and reaching our goals, our desires are constantly changing. What we wanted last year that held us captive but may not even be in our focus anymore. We change as we go and each step teaches us more about what we want and where we want to go. As we mature and evolve, things that previously seemed important may fade and we might decide to completely change direction. Our lives are always ours to design and no matter what’s happening, we can always redirect our course toward a new path. Sometimes while we’re pursuing a goal, complications arise that cannot be overcome and we have to stop and do something else. Other times as we get nearer to our destination, we may see it’s not exactly like we thought it would be and decide not to continue. If we’re suddenly done with the road we’ve been traveling, we can step off and begin on something new. Life is always changing and we never know what tomorrow will bring. We can be flexible and turn our direction at any time. Every dream is possible but some dreams look different the closer we get. We don’t have to hold onto something simply because we’ve had it for a while. We can let go and start again. There are endless roads and possibilities awaiting us, and nothing is out of reach. We can have the lives we want by staying true to what is most important. Every destination is possible and with clarity, focus and determination, we can choose the best path going forward.

There are a lot of people coming and going, in and out of our lives all the time. We build relationships with them and if they’re very close they may have some impact on the decisions we make. If we decide on a change in our lives, and they either don’t agree with us or don’t understand what we’re doing, they may try to dissuade us from proceeding. We can listen to any advice we like and certainly take suggestions about the road ahead, but we don’t need permission to go anywhere. We’re wise enough to know what we want, and smart enough to achieve it.

It’s nice to do things with others and when everyone is going one way, we can certainly join in. But the direction our lives take is completely up to us. If we don’t want to continue with the group, we can step away and take another road. Sometimes the goal we want can only be accomplished by ourselves. We’re strong enough to do anything and can go anywhere we desire. We can step forward with determination and wisdom, and be confident we will succeed.

Today if you’ve decided the road you’re on is taking you somewhere you no longer want to go, change direction. You can do anything and changing your mind doesn’t mean you’ve failed. Every road is open and ready for you. Decide what you want the most and start again. Be confident. You are strong and wise, and can accomplish anything you desire. Nothing is out of reach and you can have the life you dream of.

Directions

30 Jun

There are endless roads we can travel as we go through our lives.  We can make any decisions we like and choose any way forward.  Sometimes it doesn’t matter which road we choose and other times the choice is critical to where we want to end up.  When we’re facing a lot of options it may be difficult to clarify exactly which way is best and we may seek directions from others.  We may certainly ask for advice at any time and listen to any suggestions we receive.  It’s great to get directions when we need them but we must always remember that in the end, the choice is ours and ours alone.  If we choose a path that was recommended and it takes us somewhere we did not want to go we may be disappointed and have to start again.  If we take someone else’s advice and it turns out badly we may feel they are responsible and blame them for our results.  However, if our choices don’t work out we are the only ones responsible.  Advice is just a suggestion.  If we take it and things go wrong we own not only the decision we made but the results from that decision.  If we end up in the wrong place we can start again and choose another way forward.  We don’t have to stay anywhere we don’t want to be.  We can begin again and turn our course until we reach the destination we desire.  We have unlimited chances to choose and we can find the right road forward.  We have enough confidence and wisdom to make excellent decisions and reach any destination we desire.

Personal inspiration is available to all of us all the time.  We can listen to it, trust ourselves and rely on our ability to choose wisely.  Nobody knows what we want better than we do and even if we get a lot of suggestions about how to achieve it, we can listen to our own inspiration and base our decisions on what we feel is best.  There are unlimited roads we can take, endless turns we can make and countless destinations to reach.  We can define what we want and how we want to achieve it.  We know who we are and have everything we need to design a journey that fits perfectly.

Some people are very strong and determined and may feel they know what we need.  They may tell us which way to go, what to do and how to move forward and we may listen to any suggestion they make.  If they are wise and knowledgeable, their directions may be valuable but we must choose for ourselves.  If we allow others to decide where we’ll go and how we’ll get there we may lose the confidence we need to make good decisions.  We may also end up going places we don’t want to go.  Good advice is a valuable tool we can use when we need it.  There will always be plenty of opinions about how we should live our lives but if we want to find true happiness we must make sure the decisions we make reflect what we want most.  Everything is available to us and we can reach any destination we choose.

Today if you know where you want to go but are confused by directions from others, trust yourself and choose what’s best for you.  You have all the wisdom and inspiration you need to find your way forward.  Be confident and move ahead.  Every destination you desire is there for you.
