Overcoming

10 May

“Difficulties are just things to overcome, after all.”   Ernest Shackleton

Life is filled with challenges and opportunities for us to grow and learn new skills. Much of our learning comes from facing difficulties and finding our way through them. Every day brings us something new and as we embrace each opportunity for change, we get closer to the people we most want to be. Nobody wants a life filled with hardship or trouble, but sometimes it seems that’s what we get. Thankfully, nothing lasts forever and as we untangle each problem, we are edified and enlightened. There are endless things to learn and each experience gives us another tool to use going forward. Overcoming difficult times teaches us more about ourselves and the world around us than an easy life could ever offer. The hard days bring us resolve and depth, and we learn how to manage stress and overcome doubt and fear. We often find that we learn the most when we’ve been through a serious trial. We never know what tomorrow will bring, but we can be confident that no matter what happens, we have all the courage and temerity we need to find our way. Even the strongest, most powerful storms cannot last forever. At the end of the tempest, the skies will clear, the sun will shine and we’ll find peace and comfort. There isn’t anything we can’t do and nothing is strong enough to overcome us. We can have faith in our ability to prevail, and trust ourselves to find all the answers we need. We are powerful and resilient, and can face anything that comes. Our lives will be embellished and as we move forward, we’ll find great satisfaction and happiness.

When we must face a complicated and difficult situation, we may be unsure. If it’s extreme and threatening, we may feel we are doomed and will never survive. But no matter how bad things are we can take our time to see them objectively and take them apart one step at a time. We don’t have to solve everything at once. We can find one answer after another until we reach the solution. Every answer is there for us and with patience and confidence, we will prevail.

Fear is something we all face from time to time. If we’re surprised and stopped in our tracks by events that have transpired unexpectedly, we may not be confident we can overcome. If we feel overwhelmed, it may be hard to think and process what we should do next. We can step back and stand still, and give ourselves a moment to look at where we are and what’s possible going forward. There will always be a solution to any problem we face, and if we stand firm and think clearly, we’ll find it.

Today if you’re facing a complicated and serious problem, and feel overwhelmed, remember how successful you’ve already been solving other issues. Trust yourself. You are wise and perfectly capable of managing anything before you. Stand strong and be confident. You will find every answer you need, and reach success.

Learning to Wait

23 May

When we want something, or seek an answer to a problem we often want it right away. It’s hard to wait for something we really want and if we need the answer to go forward it’s even harder. Learning to wait doesn’t always come easily. If we’re waiting for something to happen the resolution we seek will never be far from our minds. We’ll be on the lookout for the answers and have our eyes always focused on the goal. It’s hard to wait when we want something badly and it’s hard to be patient when we want a change to occur. We live in a world of immediate gratification and we may expect immediate action when there is something we desire. But life doesn’t always work that way. Sometimes we must wait. Learning to wait takes patience and the irony is we learn to be patient by having to wait. The two go hand in hand. In time as we learn to be patient we will find the wait easier to manage. Most things we want don’t come instantaneously. We can trust the answers to come and patiently wait for our situation to resolve. Learning to wait helps us navigate our lives more comfortably and effectively. It’s not always easy but we have everything we need to accomplish it.

If we’re in a group with others and we’re sure of an answer and confident we know the way forward but some aren’t convinced, we may have to wait until they come on board. If we are positive the answers are there and still we must wait it may be difficult to remain calm. Everyone reaches their personal conclusions in their own timeframes. We can explain our point of view, show the benefits of any options and express why we feel the way forward is the direction we’ve chosen. That may be enough to bring others on board, but sometimes the vision may not be convincing and we may have to continue to wait. There is often no urgency in our decisions and if we must wait we can take a step back. We can be patient until others join us.

Life is filled with distractions and sometimes they get in the way of what we want to do. Things get more complicated the more other people get involved. Everyone has their own opinions and reaching a consensus that allows us to move forward may take time. We can patiently express our views but we must also allow others the same benefit. Even if we’re sure we have the answers, everyone’s opinion is important. We can be respectful and offer whatever time is needed. Sometimes the best answers come after everyone expresses their viewpoints and we see a bigger picture to make the best decision going forward.

Today if you feel you know what needs to be done and you must wait, be patient. Allow others to join you and share the load going forward. You will accomplish your goal and get to the destination. There is no rush. When the time is right you will begin, and find success. There isn’t anything you can’t accomplish. Be patient. Everything will come.
