Going Solo

26 Apr

Life is full of opportunities and we can do anything we like. Our lives are ours to design and every goal is possible. We are in control of our decisions and can make them in ways that take us closer to the destinations we most desire. There will always be others around us, and if we share our vision with them and explain what we want to accomplish, they may cheer us on, or they may disagree and try to dissuade from our dreams. Everyone has their own opinions about how things should go, and we’re all entitled to choose any path we like. We can listen to any suggestions or advice, and then do exactly as we please. We never need agreement or permission to create any scenario we desire. After all, our personal journey is for us, and nobody else. We aren’t here to pave the way for anyone else’s dreams, and we never need to hold ours back because others don’t like it or don’t think we should proceed. We know what we want and although support and agreement is nice, we don’t need it to succeed. We can go solo and chart our own course to every destination we seek. The whole world is there for us, and every conceivable plan is possible. We need only decide what we want and begin forward. We can do what is necessary to achieve complete happiness, even if we must do it alone. We’re born alone and we’ll certainly die alone, but in between there will be others around us. Their influence may be great, and we may value their experience and wisdom. They may want us to do as they ask or go along with them, but we don’t have to follow their lead. We are entitled to our own dreams and desires and have everything we need to make them ours. We can trust ourselves to create the lives we want the most and find great happiness and satisfaction.

It’s great to build good, strong relationships with those around us. Having family and a network of friends can embellish and enrich our lives. We may enjoy spending time with them, sharing activities, and learning new things. They may invite us to do many things, or want us to emulate their decisions, but we never have to do anything we don’t want just because we have a connection. If they want us to go somewhere we’re not interested in, or do something that isn’t right for us, we may politely decline. Having a relationship doesn’t mean we must be the same.

Our journey is ours to determine. We are unique and individual, and there never has been, nor will there ever be anyone exactly like us. The roads we choose to travel are ours to choose, and we may go anywhere and do anything. By embracing our own desires, and appreciating our specific gifts and talents, we can find great pleasure and joy each day. Every success is there for us, and we can reach them all.

Today if you’re being pressured to change your plans and go in a different direction, choose the road that will take where you most want to go. You never have to go along to get along. Be confident and chart your own course. Nobody knows you better than you know yourself. Step forward on the journey you desire and proceed toward the goal. Nothing is out of reach, and you will succeed.

Restart

When we want to learn something new, or accomplish something we’ve been pondering, we might look at others who have already completed the goal and see how they did it.  We may try to emulate them in an effort to find success.  It’s possible to accomplish something by copying someone else’s choices, but that doesn’t always work.  We might find no matter how hard we try, what worked for them doesn’t work for us.  Sometimes a change in timing, or expression, or even location may make what worked before impossible now.  We can keep hammering away at the issue but if it’s not going to work no matter how hard we try, we may be stuck.  There are always many roads to any destination.  If what we’re doing isn’t working, we can reroute our direction and start again.  We can revise our plans, take a look at all the options available and carve a new road going forward.  We can go anywhere we want to go and no matter how far the road is or how convoluted the path may be, find our way.  All destinations are possible but we may need to carve a new path to get there.  We are certainly capable of creating a new road any time we need one.  If we keep our eyes on the goal and focus moving forward we will reach it.  There is nothing too difficult or too far away.  We are powerful and wise and nothing is impossible.  Success will come when we’re open to new possibilities and keep moving ahead.

Sometimes it may seem as though everyone around us is having success with something we cannot accomplish.  Everyone is different and our understanding of each situation is unique.  We know who we are and what we need to be successful.  We can change our methods and chart our own course.  There are infinite roads to every goal, and we can find the path that brings us success.  Our interpretations and expressions belong to us alone and by doing things our way we enhance the world around us.  We can forge our own path and find the way to any goal we desire.

The world is filled with differences everywhere we look.  There are many ways to view any situation and there will always be more than one answer possible.  Our ability to see things differently than those around us will enrich our experiences and bring fresh perspectives to every situation.  We are all individual and every new idea opens our understanding to new possibilities.  We don’t have to copy others to be successful.  We can choose our own path and create unique lives that reflect who we are and what we bring to the world.  Life is an incredible gift.  Being completely ourselves blesses us and those around us.

Today if you’ve been following someone else’s patterns in an effort to find success, remember how unique and wonderful you are.  You have so much to offer the world just as you are.  Look at all your options and choose the road that reflects your individuality and personal choices.  Every success is possible and nothing is out of reach.  Share your unique perspective.  The whole world is blessed because you are here.

 

Cloning

18 May

We’re all different and have been blessed with specific gifts and talents unique to us alone. Nobody is exactly like anyone else and we all have our own role to play in life. Although most people understand this there may be times when someone near us expects us to be like them. They may believe their choices are better than ours, their understanding is deeper or that they know more about what we need than we do. They may be family members who adhere to traditional patterns and want us to do the same, or friends who believe they are smarter or wiser than we are, or they may be someone in authority over us who feels responsibility for our choices. There are limitless ways we may be influenced to change something in our lives or to mimic a certain behavior. If the pressure is pervasive and constant we may surrender out of shear fatigue. We can go along with someone else’s idea about how we should be for a time but eventually who we really are will rise and we will have to choose. True happiness will never come to us if we are trying to be something we aren’t. It’s important to be honest with ourselves and authentic in our behaviors. We each have special gifts to offer the world only we can give. We can honor our uniqueness despite pressures around us and choose to be completely who we really are. When we do, the world is blessed and we find happiness.

A clone is an exact replica of something else. It’s a copy of something that already exists. Clones are not unique or different in any way and respond and act exactly like the original item. While others may not say they expect us to be their clones, there may be times when we are asked to do things exactly their way even when we want to do something else. If there is enough pressure or the consequences of going our own way are difficult we may acquiesce. Becoming a copy of someone else will never bring us happiness, even if the other person is happy. We must be genuinely who we are to find it and who we are is perfect for our lives. Our gifts belong to us alone. Only we can express them and find the joy they will bring.

Some people believe they have insight and understanding about what others need and continually offer their advice and comments. We can hear and accept other views and decisions, and we may certainly give them all the respect they deserve. But in the end our lives belong to us and what we do relies solely on our personal choices. We may listen to the advice and counsel we are offered and then do what we feel is best. Nobody knows us better than we know ourselves and we can choose our own way confident we will find success.

Today if you feel pressure to conform to someone else’s idea of what you should be doing, remember you have everything you need to choose for yourself. You know what you want and you have all the wisdom and power to accomplish anything you desire. Be yourself and be true to the uniqueness you offer. We need your influence and your special gifts. You are a great blessing to the world.
