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.

Big Shoulders

22 Jun

As we go through our lives trouble comes to all of us.  We have the regular aggravations that crop up and there are always some sort of complications as we try to do things.  Sometimes we encounter serious problems that are difficult to navigate and if we have more than one to deal with at once, we can feel beset.  They say that in every life a little rain must fall, but if we’re in a deluge of trouble and struggling to get through, it can be very uncomfortable to navigate.  There is a limitless variety of problems we may encounter.  If we have all the skills we need to solve them we get through them more easily than when we are caught unaware and unprepared.  We can’t read the future and can’t be prepared for everything that comes to us but we can be confident that no matter what it is, no matter how hard it is to overcome, or how complicated it becomes we can find a way through.  Nothing will come to us that we can’t figure out.  It might take some time, and we may feel daunted and confused for a while but we will find our way.  If we are confident and calm there isn’t anything we can’t face.

Sometimes we can sense when problems are going to happen.  Perhaps we notice changes that point to complications coming our way.  Maybe we can try to head them off at the pass and solve the situation before it gets too big.  But sometimes we can’t do anything to stop the issue and have to navigate it when it arrives.  There will almost certainly be other people involved when we face difficult issues and although we may have our ideas about how to go about resolving them, their influence and impact may be significant.  If we can’t agree on how to correct the situation it will take longer to let it go.  But we can be patient and clearly give our opinions and advice.  We may have to compromise our plans but when we find a workable answer everyone can agree on we can move forward.

When we have very difficult personal problems it can be hard to navigate the other arenas of our lives.  If what we’re going through is so painful that we can’t concentrate, finding the solution won’t wait.  Our lives are important and our happiness depends our ability to navigate and resolve whatever is holding us back.  Sometimes we may need to reach out for professional help and we can do that.  Or we might want the advice and counsel of a trusted friend.  We don’t have to face anything alone and if we want help, we can find it.  No matter what comes, there isn’t anything we can’t do and nothing we can’t manage.  We are capable of facing even the most difficult of trials, and our shoulders are big enough to carry them.

Today if you’re going through a difficult situation and feel beset by the problem, remember there isn’t anything you can’t do.  You can get help if you need it.  You will find the answers you’re seeking and you will resolve the issue.  You are stronger than you know.  Be confident.  Be brave.  You will prevail.
