Horses and Water

13 Jul

There are endless things we can do, unlimited places to go, and no end to experiences we may have. Life is full of surprises and unexpected developments, and even when we try to plan carefully and follow every rule, sometimes everything goes awry. We never know what will happen, and the road we’re on may suddenly, and without warning, simply disappear. There is no destination that has only one possible route to reach it. There will always be another road, another turn, and another way around anything that gets in the way. We have endless opportunities to do whatever we desire, but the lives we want the most won’t magically appear just because we want them, or we’re good people, or our intentions are noble. It’s up to us to start the journey and stay focused until we reach the goal. Nothing is beyond our grasp, but we must do what is needed to make it ours. The old saying, “You can lead a horse to water but you can’t make it drink,” is a message about life. There will be continual chances to do anything we like, but we must take the opportunities when they arise and do the work to reach the goal. The door may stand open, but we have to walk through it and push forward until we succeed. Every dream is possible if we’re willing to do what is necessary to make it ours. We are amazing and more powerful than we realize, and by clearly defining what we want and then moving toward the goal undaunted, we can have the lives we desire most.

We all have things we want to accomplish, and we may spend lots of time thinking about all the blessings we’ll gain when we win. It’s nice to dream about the things we desire, but until we actually start moving toward the goal, nothing will change. It may be difficult to achieve, but we are strong and capable. It may take a long time, but we can move forward at our own pace. Every destination is possible and by trusting ourselves and courageously stepping forward we will succeed.

Some people continually complain about their lives. They may say they didn’t get the opportunities they wanted, or someone didn’t like them and held them back, or they were born in the wrong place or a million other excuses for why they are so unhappy. Our lives belong to us and nobody is going to pave the road ahead or open all the hard doors that let us progress. If we aren’t happy where we are, we can move.  If we don’t like what we’re doing, we can change. Our destiny is ours to define, and when we’re ready there isn’t anything we can’t do.

Today if there’s something you want to do but haven’t yet started, think about how you want to proceed and take the first step. There is greatness in you and nothing is out of reach. Trust yourself and move forward with confidence. Every destination awaits, every success is possible, and you will make them yours.

The Storm

22 Feb

Life is full of surprises and we may find ourselves in situations we don’t imagine will ever happen. Everything may change suddenly, and we may get disoriented trying to figure out what’s going on. At some point we’ll all face adversity. Storms will come, the sky will darken, the wind will blow, and rain will pelt us. It’s not easy to face difficult challenges, and during the turmoil, we may feel overcome and certain we’ll never survive. But we get through one day, and we’re still here. Then we get through the next, and before we realize it, the road ahead is clear. When we’re under water trying to find our way, it may seem everything is frozen in place, but the world continues on. Nothing stops just because we’re struggling. We might be stuck for a time, but others will continue to move ahead, and the earth will continue to turn. When we’re finally on the other side of the trial, we might discover that everything around us has changed. Before we step forward and continue, we can stop and take the time we need to get a good look at everything before us. Things may be different, but we are still capable and strong. We still know what we want and have everything we need to succeed. Trouble isn’t easy to get through, but it teaches us a lot about ourselves and the world around us. We can take everything we’ve learned forward with us and use our new skills to forge the way ahead. Life isn’t always easy, but we will always have what we need to get through anything that comes. We are more powerful than we may realize, and nothing can hold us in place forever. Every road will be there for us, and we can go anywhere we desire. By trusting ourselves and having faith in our ability to overcome, we will prevail and reach the prize. We can do anything and accomplish any goal. Nothing is out of reach, and we will win.

It’s great to have friends and companions who support us and encourage us when things go wrong and we’re facing hard times. They can hold us up when we feel we can’t continue and give us comfort when the road gets difficult. Those who love us will be there when we need them, but they may not agree with how we want to proceed. They may tell us to go in a different direction or manage things in a different way. We can certainly take any advice that’s offered, but nobody knows us better than we know ourselves. We will always know what’s best for us and can find the road we desire most.

There may be times when trouble comes, and we must stand alone. Help is always welcome, but if it’s not forthcoming, we are not destined to fail. New situations and experiences can be unsettling, and when they come with unforeseen and hard complications, it can be hard to figure out our next steps. But we are intelligent and there isn’t anything we can’t manage. We can look at all the options possible and choose the best road ahead.

Today if you’re struggling to get through a difficult situation and aren’t sure how you’ll survive, trust yourself. You are wiser and more capable than you may realize. Be confident and step forward. Every dream is possible, and you will make them yours.

Nirvana

29 Dec

Our lives are ours to design and we can do anything we like. Every option we desire is possible but the things we want won’t suddenly appear or fall into our laps while we sit and dream. Although we may wish for them, magic genies who can grant our wishes will never be real. We can have every single dream we imagine but making them come true is up to us. There might be a fairy godmother somewhere but it’s unlikely she’s going to appear any time soon. Instead of wishing and hoping that our lives would change into our fondest desires and dreams, we can objectively look at what it will take to make it happen, and then set forth to accomplish the task. Some things take a lot of work and will require a lot of time, but everything worth having is worth working for. By deciding what we want the most, and then doing what is necessary to make it ours, we can create the life we dream about. We can create our own Nirvana and find complete happiness and satisfaction. Or we can sit around and dream about what our lives could be like and do nothing. Complaining because we aren’t where we want to be, or shrinking back because we lack the confidence we need to get there won’t move us forward. What we do is our choice and responsibility. We don’t have to know everything, or have all the tools we need before we start the journey. Taking a step forward will give us more information to move ahead, and the confidence to take another. Step by step, staying focused on the goal, we’ll move forward until we reach it. Every dream is possible, and nothing is too difficult for us to accomplish. We can plan effectively, and then stay on course until we find success. The lives we desire most are waiting for us, and with determination we will make them ours.

A road that has been well-traveled is much easier to navigate than one we have to cut ourselves as we push forward. We can always do what everyone else is doing and settle for what’s common and easy. But if we want our own dreams to come true and have lives filled with rich experiences and success, we’ll have to reach further than what’s easy. We can reach beyond where we are and strive for more. By moving toward the dreams we really want, we can reach every goal and find true happiness and satisfaction.

If we don’t take control of our lives and push toward the goals and dreams we really want, time will roll on and we’ll simply go where life takes us. It’s impossible to go where we want to go if someone else is driving the train. Instead of coasting along, we can proactively take charge of our decisions and move toward the goals we want the most. We are intelligent and strong, and nothing can keep us from any destination. Every dream is possible, and we can make them ours.

Today if you’ve been kicking back and letting things just roll out as they will, remember your dreams are important. You know what you want, and already possess everything you need to make it yours. Take charge of your destiny and move toward your goals. Nothing can keep you from anything you desire. You are amazing and powerful, and you will prevail.

Walking Away

20 Jun

Every step we take and every choice we make changes us in some way. Change is constant and what we wanted to do in the past may revise as we move on to something else. Nothing ever stays the same indefinitely and we can turn and modify our direction whenever we choose. There may be times when we’re involved with something or someone and as we interact with them, our feelings become different. Perhaps we’re no longer interested in pursuing a particular goal, or have decided to end or modify a personal relationship. We grow as we experience new things and with each step, learn something new. It’s a normal and common development. What was fascinating and captivating in the past may no longer interest us, and the things we liked before may become dull. We can always adjust our course and go in a new direction. Walking away from one thing and onto another will happen thousands of times in our lives. If we want to try something new, we can change our minds and choose a different course. We can end the chapter, close the book, and walk away. Every option is possible and we can open new doors and travel new roads at any time. There are unlimited opportunities available to us. We never have to continue doing anything we don’t want, or stay on the same road just because that’s where we are. We can step away, try new things and explore fresh ideas. Everything is possible and nothing is out of reach. We can have the lives we desire, make every dream a reality and feel absolutely fulfilled and satisfied. Complete happiness is possible and by choosing what we want we will find it.

Sometimes things look different once we get closer to them. What seemed like a good idea when we started out may turn into something else, and we can step away if we find we aren’t headed where we want to go. Nobody gets frozen in place unless they decide to stand still. We’re always in control of what we do and can alter our course at any time. We’re in command of our personal destiny and every choice can move us closer to where we want to be. We decide how our lives will go and what we’ll experience. All options are there for us and with wisdom and courage, we can do everything we desire, and have the lives we dream about.

We can go anywhere, and do anything but first we must decide what we want. Without a destination in mind, we may stumble along going this way and that, circling back a time or two, and end up exactly where we started. Endless choices mean nothing if we don’t take a step forward and decide where we’re headed. There are amazing and incredible things we can accomplish and with determination and focus, we can do them all. Our lives are in our control and we can live them any way we desire.

Today if you’ve changed your mind about something you’re doing, decide what you want and where you want to go. Make a plan to move forward and take the first step in a new direction. You are powerful and strong and there isn’t anything you can’t do. Choose your next move and create the life you want the most. Every dream is possible and you can make them all come true.
