Unavailable

18 Aug

Everyone has their own ideas about how they should live their lives. We all have goals and dreams we want to accomplish. Some of them are inconsequential and can be achieved easily with little effort. Others are crucial and their importance weighs heavily upon us. When there’s something we really want, something we feel we must have to be comfortable and happy, and we can’t get to it, our frustration may be intense. Everything is possible but not everything will be available all the time. We only have control over ourselves and may face a time when due to unforeseen circumstances, what we want is unavailable. Nothing we do will get us to it, and it remains out of reach. It’s very hard to accept defeat when we want something intensely. But if it’s not possible, and there is no way to get there, we will have to set our sights on something else, and wait. Change is constant and in time, however long it takes, whatever is in the way will move and the door will open for us. We can continue forward and keep our eyes focused on the road ahead. When things change, we can be ready to step up and seize the moment. Every goal is possible but they may not bend to our timeframe. We can be flexible and prepare for when our situation opens up, and start again. Nothing is too difficult for us to achieve, and with patience and perseverance we will prevail.

Waiting takes practice and patience. It’s hard to stand still when we want to move. But waiting gives us a chance to look at everything objectively. There may be a way around the obstacle in front of us we didn’t see when we were rushing forward. By looking carefully at every possible option, we may find the key that unlocks the road ahead. We are very intelligent and highly capable, and nothing can elude us indefinitely. We know what we want, and with clarity and confidence, can make it ours.

If we’ve waited a long time and still nothing has changed, and it seems the goal we desire is simply not available no matter what happens or what we do, we can decide how we want to proceed. Some plans may not work out and we may have to change our focus. That doesn’t mean we’ve failed, only that the idea won’t work at this time. It doesn’t mean it will never succeed. We can look at other things and continue to move forward, checking back from time to time to see where we are, and the possibilities ahead. Nothing is out of reach forever. Everything is possible and when the road opens, we can move toward success.

Today if you’re stuck and can’t move forward, decide on how you want to continue. You can work on other things and still keep the goal in focus. When things change, be ready to move and you’ll reach success. You are amazing and powerful, and nothing can keep you from anything you desire. Be confident and strong. Keep moving forward and every dream will be yours.

Wait

11 Aug

As we go through our lives and work on our goals, we’ll experience many different situations. Sometimes things fall into place without too much trouble and we can move ahead toward the destination we’re seeking without a lot of discomfort or duress. It’s always great to get to a goal quickly, but we may face challenges and complications that keep us from moving forward and cause irritation and frustration. There is no way to know how any road will roll out before we start walking on it. Even if someone has gone before and alerted us to whatever pitfalls may await, things may change and we may face an entirely different scenario. If we’ve been trying hard to get through and can’t seem to make any headway, we might think the goal is impossible. Changing our minds and changing our plans is always an option, but nothing is over until it’s over. Are we really at the end where there is no hope of advancement, or is this just a long delay? There’s no way to know what will happen next, and if we rush to quit we’ll never find out. Every goal is possible but we may have to wait for them to become available. Although everything can be done, they can’t all be done today. If we’re stuck and can’t find a way around, we don’t have to abandon everything. We can set it aside for now, work on something else, and return later when our circumstances have changed. Change is constant and nothing can stay the same forever. The opportunity to move ahead will come and when it does, we can be ready to seize the moment and start again. Life is full of opportunities and if we’re patient and persistent, there isn’t anything we can’t accomplish. Great success is always there for us, and we have what is needed to make it ours.

When we know what we want, it’s very hard to wait but there are lots of people all around us, and some may make decisions that impact our ability to move forward. There may be situations beyond our reach that impede our progress, and we may get stuck waiting for them to resolve. While we wait, we can think about all the options possible that will take us to success. There may be another way around the situation, and by standing still and looking at everything objectively, the answers will appear. We are highly capable and intelligent, and nothing can keep us from anything we desire.

When we take a road trip, it’s easier to travel over smooth, paved roads. We can make good time and get to the destination quickly without too much distress. But if we face a detour and must continue on muddy, uneven terrain, we may be delayed. However, if we’re going in the right direction, we’ll still reach the goal. If we want to get there, a muddy road can’t keep us from success and neither can any other complication. We know what we want and can reach every destination. Nothing can hold us in place indefinitely, and the whole world is there for us.

Today if you’re stuck and nothing you do can move you ahead, set the goal aside for now. Wait until the door opens and you can move forward. The goal will still be there and if you’re patient and wise, you will reach it. You are amazing and more powerful than you realize. Watch for the sign and start again. Every destination is possible and you will succeed.

Not Ready

10 Aug

We can do anything we want in life. Some things will come easily and be simple to accomplish. We may achieve them with little effort, and feel happy and confident. But not everything can be achieved without serious work. We may choose something that will require a lot of concentration and effort. If it’s going to be complicated and require our complete attention, when we look at everything that will be required to accomplish it, even if we really want it we may think we’re not quite ready to tackle it. Nobody is perfect but we may believe we need to be somehow better than we are right now or the situation needs to perfect before we begin. Waiting for the perfect time to start a journey is always an option, but if we put things off until everything lines up, everyone around us is in agreement, and someone is there to help us pave the way ahead, we may stay where we are indefinitely. We don’t have to do anything until we’re ready, but waiting until everything is perfect may work against us. Perfection in life is the exception, not the norm. Most of the time there will be something that isn’t working, or someone who’s complaining, or something that doesn’t exactly mesh with our plans. None of that matters if we’re ready to move and achieve the goal. No matter what’s going on around us, we can find a way forward and untangle anything in the way. We just have to take a step forward, and then take another until we reach the goal. Life is uncertain, and we never know what will happen next. We are in control of our own destiny and can go anywhere and do anything despite what is happening around us. Every single dream is possible, and with focus and determination, we can reach them all.

No matter what we want to do, there will always be someone who thinks we can’t achieve it. Some people don’t like change in their own lives, or the lives of those around them. They want everything to stay the same so they know what to expect. Everyone has their own choices to make, but we never have to change ours just because someone else doesn’t agree. We can listen to their objections and advice, and then choose our own way forward. We already know what we want, and have everything we need to get it. We can begin any journey as soon as we’re ready and be sure of success.

We may face a time when the road ahead is very different than we anticipated. There may be unexpected complications, or others involved who make the journey difficult. Facing an unforeseen problem isn’t a sign that we must stop. Although we can never see the entire journey before we begin, we can be confident that no matter what we face, we’ll have what we need to continue forward. Few roads will take us directly from where we are to the destination we want. There will likely be twists and turns, delays and detours, but if we are patient and persist, nothing can keep us from the goal.

Today if you’ve been waiting for everything to be perfect before starting toward a goal, look at the situation objectively. You are amazing and intelligent, and can manage anything that comes. Trust yourself to prevail and step forward. Every destination is there for you, and every goal is possible. Be confident and begin. Nothing can keep you from success and you will win.

Another Chance

13 Jul

Everyone has things they want to accomplish, goals they want to reach, and places they want to visit. We all have an idea of what our perfect life would be like, and can do whatever is necessary to create it. Everything is possible and nothing is out of reach. Once we make a plan and begin forward, we hope the road will be clear and we’ll be able to get to the destination with few problems and complications, and sometimes that happens. But nobody is perfect and we all stumble from time to time. If we make a big mistake in judgment and end up going in the wrong direction, or make a choice that stops us cold or leads us to a dead end, we may think it’s over. We may believe we’ve screwed up so badly there is no way to succeed. When we fall down and our plans go up in smoke, we might think there is no way to continue and we’ve ruined all possibility of success, but that will never be true. We will never reach a point where there are no options left. There will always be another chance waiting in the wings. There are endless ways forward, and possibilities of prevailing. The answers may be hidden for a time, we might have to wait, or we may need to dig deep and search intently to find them, but there will always be another chance for success. The world won’t stop just because one road ends. We are intelligent and creative, and no matter what’s gone wrong, can figure out what to do next. We have millions of possibilities and unlimited times to try. We know what we want, and will find our way to success. Everything is possible, and with patience and courage, we will unlock all the answers needed to achieve anything we desire. The whole world is there for us, and we can make our dreams come true.

When we make a mistake and fall down, some may say we should give up. They may ask why we are putting ourselves through such a difficult task, and tell us to be happy with what we’ve got. We can take any advice we like, but our lives are ours to design and we can do anything. If we want something more, even if it’s very difficult to achieve, we can obtain it. Anything worth having is worth working hard for. Every single destination is possible and with determination and focus, we can make them ours.

If we want to achieve anything, the first step is believing we can succeed. If we let it, self-doubt may hold us in place and keep us from reaching our most desired goals. We are wiser and more capable than we think we are, and there isn’t anything we can’t do. By being confident, and stepping forward with clarity and conviction, we can move closer to any goal we desire. Everything is possible and nothing is off limits. We can have the lives we most desire, and reach every destination.

Today if your plans have fallen apart and the goal looks too far away, trust yourself. You know what you want and have everything you need to get it. Stand firm and step forward. Every destination is there for you and you will reach them all. Success is just ahead and it will be yours.

Digging In

3 Jun

Everyday we face new challenges and make choices about how we’ll proceed. Life is filled with all kinds of experiences, and since we don’t live on a deserted island, there will be others around who may influence us one way or another. We may get all kinds of advice and suggestions, which may be helpful or might be misleading. If someone near us is very powerful and strong willed, they may demand that we follow their suggestions for moving forward. Some people are very smart and confident and may be sure they are steering us in the best direction, and maybe they’re right. Of course, we can listen to any advice we’re given, but nobody knows us better than we know ourselves. Nobody will have our personal insight regarding what we want and how we want to proceed. Taking someone else’s suggestion might be great, or it might not. There will be no way to find out unless we implement whatever they have suggested and try it out. If we follow someone else’s lead, and things go well, terrific. If everything goes bust and we end up in a terrible situation, we may be tempted to blame them for our demise, but we own every decision we make. We choose the roads we’ll travel. We own them whether they bring us happiness or misery. Everyone has their own ideas about life, and each is unique and individual. We know what we want and have everything we need to go anywhere and do anything. We can trust ourselves to choose the best road ahead and find our way to success. If we need more information, we can find it and then step forward on our own path. Others may disagree and criticize our choice, but the choice is ours to make. We can dig in and stand firm on what we want to do and how we will proceed. There is enough courage and wisdom inside us to guide us anywhere we want to go. Success is always there, and we will reach it.

Nobody knows everything. We can only get information that’s available at any moment in time and sometimes we may take a wrong turn because there were facts we were unaware of. We can only see what’s just ahead and there may be twists and turns in the future that hold us back or stop us in our tracks. If the road gets tangled, and we can’t push forward, we can choose another route. There are endless roads to every destination, and with persistence and patience, we will prevail.

Someone may think they know us better than we know ourselves, and if they aren’t in agreement with our plans, may try to dissuade us or obstruct the way forward. They may know us well, but nobody can possibly know what we want better than we do. The road ahead may be difficult, but we are strong. It may be complex, but we are intelligent. Nothing can keep us from any goal we desire, and we will succeed.

Today if you’re getting lots of advice regarding a specific goal, trust yourself. Decide how you want to proceed, and step forward. You are wiser and more powerful than you imagine, and every destination is there for you. Success is waiting, and with focus and clarity, nothing will keep you from it. Every dream is possible, and you will prevail.
