Follow the Leader

30 Sep

Our lives belong to us and we can do anything we like. We always know who we are but there may be times when we modify our course to follow someone else, and decide to pattern our lives after theirs. If they’re successful in ways we desire, we may choose to copy their actions and decisions in the hopes that we’ll achieve the same success for ourselves. There are countless self-help books available that tell us if we want to be happy or accomplish something important, we need only copy what the author has done and we’ll succeed. Whether that is accurate or not is debatable but if we believe them, we may try to emulate their lives instead of living our own. Like the child’s game, Follow the Leader, we can copy anyone else’s moves and decisions at any time. We can follow them for as long as we like and we might end up somewhere we want to go – or we might not. It all depends on the decisions we make along the way. Each of us is unique and our life expressions are individual to our own experiences. Trying to be like someone else might move us closer to a goal, but if we only copy another’s choices, we’ll never know what we could do on our own. We are highly capable and able to achieve anything we desire. There isn’t a destination we can’t reach, and we already possess everything we need to be successful. Following along will only take us where someone else wants to go and teach us someone else’s lessons. There are endless paths to discover and we can create the lives we dream about by finding them on our own. We can forge our own unique road ahead and achieve any goal we desire. Nothing is beyond our reach and we will find great success.

When we’re unsure about where we’re headed, we can lean on someone else’s decisions and direction until we feel more confident. However, if we continue to rely on decisions made by others, we won’t reach the destinations we most desire. There is no way to reach our personal goals by following someone headed in a different direction. We know what we want and have everything we need to achieve it. We can trust ourselves and step ahead with confidence, and reach every destination we desire.

There are countless possibilities in life and before we decide what we want we may follow many different ideas and try on various viewpoints and opinions. Every option has its benefits and drawbacks, and as we explore each, we will discover what’s important to us and what we want most. There are endless opportunities and we can design our lives any way we like. We are the only ones with the gifts we have to offer and the whole world is blessed because we are here. Every option is possible and with determination and focus, we can have the lives we dream of.

Today if you’ve been following someone else’s ideas and decisions, trust yourself and decide to create the life you want the most. Step forward with confidence. You can do anything and nothing is too far to reach. Think about what you want the most and then move toward your goal. Nothing can keep you from any destination you desire. Success is there for you, and you have everything you need to reach it.
