Look Over There

19 Jul

We share the world with billions of other people and we all have our own ideas about how things should go, and what we should do. Our personal goals are important and we may work hard on trying to achieve them. There is always a lot going on around us and not everyone will understand or agree with our plans. Although we don’t need agreement to proceed in any direction we desire, if someone doesn’t like our idea or feels it will impact them in some negative way, they may try to derail and distract us from the road ahead. By insinuating themselves into our lives they may continually point at other things encouraging us to look in different directions. Their hope may be that if we stay distracted long enough, we might forget about the original goal and move on to something else. When other options are continually being offered, it can be hard to focus on the goal we want, but we never have to forsake anything that’s important to us. If we step off course, we can stop and start again. Our lives are ours to design, and we never have to follow anyone else’s suggestions. Nothing is out of reach and there will always be a way to accomplish the things we most desire. We are strong and powerful, and with determination and clarity, can always reach success.  

Some people think they know us better than we know ourselves. They may believe they know what’s best for us and try to steer us toward the goals they think we should achieve. Nobody can possibly know what we want more clearly than we know ourselves. We know where we want to go and what we want to accomplish. We can listen to any advice or suggestions we like, but we are in control of the choices we make. There are a lot of possibilities and every option is there for us. We can choose the way forward and the destinations we want to reach, and then begin the journey toward success. 

Life is filled with all kinds of shiny things that may pull us away from what we’re doing. Everything may look good, and we may jump from one thing to another intrigued by all the possibilities. It’s good to explore lots of options but until we make a decision on what we want to do, and then start the journey, nothing will change. Once we determine where we want to go, we can make a plan to move toward the goal and then begin. We are wiser and more powerful than we think we are, and if we stay focused on the goal, nothing can keep us from success. 

Today pay attention to the goal you’re seeking. Be open to suggestions but remember you are in control of your destiny and can choose anything you desire. Keep your eyes focused on the road ahead and step forward with confidence. You know what you want and have everything you need to achieve it. You are amazing and wise, and nothing is out of reach. Stand strong and be sure of success.  Every blessing awaits and you will claim them.

Dream Dream Dream

15 Dec

Most of us want lives filled with accomplishment and success. We have goals we want to achieve, things we want to do, and places we want to go. The whole world is there for us but although life is full of possibilities and opportunities, if we simply coast through without direction or purpose, the odds of getting the lives we want the most are next to impossible. It’s nice to daydream and imagine what could be, and we can dream up all kinds of wonderful scenarios. We may imagine what it would be like if we could design the perfect life. Dreaming is fine and helps us define what we really want, but if all we do is think about how we wish things would go, nothing will change, and we’ll remain exactly where we are. Our lives are our responsibility. We can wish for change, and hope it will magically arrive, but nobody is going to open all the doors for us or pave the road to success. If we want our dreams to come true, we must do what is necessary to get them. They are there for us, and it’s up to us to decide if we want them enough to get them. Some things will come easily, and others will be more difficult, but if something is important to us, nothing can keep us from achieving it. There are endless things to do, and we already know what we want. We don’t have to dream about it and hope for it. We can make a plan, and as soon as we’re ready, take the first steps forward and move toward the goal. Nothing is too difficult or too far away. We are entirely capable of doing anything we desire. With perseverance and determination, we can design the lives we want the most and reach every destination. By trusting ourselves, and focusing ahead, we will succeed. Everything is possible. We can begin the journey today, and look forward to reaching the goal.

Nobody gets a perfect life. We all face challenges and things don’t always go the way we wish they would. We get into trouble, or trouble finds us, we miss a turn, friends let us down, the job goes south, and a million other things could go wrong. It does no good to sit and wish things were different. We live in the reality we have. Understanding what’s happening and deciding how we want to proceed will help us move toward what we want. We are never frozen in place and always have the power to change any circumstance or situation in which we find ourselves.

As we journey ahead, we may face a time when the road we’re on gets blocked and nothing we do can move us forward. That doesn’t mean what we’re seeking is unattainable, but that the road we’re on won’t take us to it. There will always be another option, and another way forward. We can adjust our direction when we need to and be confident of success.

Today if you’ve been thinking about a change, decide how you want to proceed and step forward. You are strong and powerful, and nothing is out of reach. Make a plan and begin toward the goal. Every dream is possible, and you can make them all yours. Success is already there waiting for you, and nothing can keep you from it. The whole world is full of possibilities, and you will succeed.

Long Lasting

21 Aug

We don’t live in a vacuum and there is no way to isolate any choice we make or action we take, and keep it from moving toward something else. One thing always leads to another and everything we do takes us somewhere. Sometimes we can see where we’ll end up, and other times it’s a mystery. One thing is certain, no matter what we do, the influences of life around us and the decisions being made by others will affect what happens next. If we take time to see the possible results of our decisions before we make them instead of blindly blundering through, we’ll have a better chance of ending up somewhere we want to go. Some decisions are insignificant and have little bearing on us or what we want to accomplish, but others carry a lot of weight and if we choose poorly, after we make them, may have long lasting affects on our lives. They may completely alter the road ahead and cause us all kinds of problems and complications as we struggle to move forward. When we’re in the middle of a turbulent situation and there is a lot of confusion, we may choose something quickly to alleviate our discomfort. We may get temporary relief from the frustration, but then find we’re on the wrong road going the wrong way. Once we’ve altered our course it may be difficult to correct our direction and get back to where we want to be. The affects of our decisions can have long lasting impact on our lives. We are intelligent and wise, and can make excellent decisions, even in times of stress. We can step back and look at everything objectively, consider every possibility, and choose the best options going forward. Every answer we need is there for us and if we take our time, we will reach every destination we desire. We already know what we want. With patience and consideration, we can make successful choices that will bring it to us.

Life is an adventure and there are endless experiences possible. We can do anything but if we let our lives just roll on with no thought or consideration for where they will take us, we may end up somewhere we don’t want to go. If we don’t control our lives, and simply do what others suggest, we’ll end up with a life designed by someone else. Happiness comes from doing what is most important to us and making choices that take us where we want to go. We deserve complete happiness, and by taking control of our decisions, and moving toward the goals we desire, we will have it.

There is no way to move backward or go back in time to change something that isn’t working. We are exactly where our choices have taken us. If we aren’t happy, we can change direction and if the road we’re on isn’t working or the decisions we made aren’t taking us where we want to go, we can stop and redirect the way forward. We can have the lives we dream about by carefully choosing the steps that will take us to it. Every goal is in reach and we can do anything, and go anywhere we desire.

Today if you’ve made a decision that isn’t taking you toward the destinations you want, change direction and start again. Choose the roads that will take you forward. Nothing can keep you from success. Every dream is possible and you will prevail. Step forward and be confident. You are amazing and powerful, and you will win.

Losing It

12 Jul

Life is complex and every minute of every day can bring something we never expected or that upends our plans and changes everything. There is no way to know what will happen next or who may enter our lives and turn our ideas inside out. Something may arise that stops us cold and requires us to adjust everything we’re doing. We may wonder how this could happen, but we only have control over ourselves, and there are always a lot of unknowns. Sometimes when we’re trying to move forward, situations or decisions get in the way and keep us from advancing. We can get mad, pitch a fit, scream at those involved, and lose all self-control in an effort to stop the situation. We may feel better after venting our anger and frustration, but it’s unlikely that losing our self-control will help anything, or bring us any answers. Disappointments will come and when they do it’s far better to step back and take a moment to process what’s happened and think about how we can still reach our goal. There are unlimited roads available and many of them will lead to the destinations we desire. If one is suddenly closed off and no longer possible, we can find another. We might not be able to do it in our original time frame, and we may have to go the long way around to get there, but success is still possible. Losing control of our emotions and blasting those around us when things change will only delay us from finding the answers we need. We don’t need any additional delays and by thinking clearly, taking a deep breath, and allowing ourselves time to see all the options available, we can continue to move forward.

When something develops that threatens what we’re doing, our first response might be to deny it’s happening. If we’re averse to conflict, we might ignore the signals that things are changing and out of our control. Looking away from things that are difficult doesn’t change anything and prevents us from finding the answers we need to manage what’s happening. We can’t hide from developments and expect to process them at the same time. We have all the wisdom and strength we need to face whatever comes, and find all the answers we need.

A change in direction is just that – a change in direction. It doesn’t mean we can’t succeed or that any goal is impossible to reach. It may be difficult to accept and we may struggle to understand, but we can still move forward. If we get angry and upset, our ability to think clearly will diminish. We can’t find solutions if we’re losing our minds over something unexpected. We know what we want and if we stop and look around, we’ll find a way to achieve it. Nothing is beyond our reach and no matter what happens, we can succeed.

Today if a wrench has been suddenly thrown into your plans and you’re thrown off course, remain calm and see what’s possible. Every road is available and you will find the way forward. You are amazing and powerful, and can do anything you desire. Make a new plan and step forward. Every success is there for you and you will prevail.

Grudge Match

5 Jul

Conflict is a normal part of life. We may not like it and we may try to avoid it but we’re all individuals and differences will happen. We don’t have to agree with everyone and everything and there will be times when we won’t comply with what someone else wants. When there is tension and disagreement we may blame the other party for not agreeing with us and making things difficult. We may understand that we’re all entitled to our own opinions but when push comes to shove, despite that understanding, we may press to get our own way. If we can’t prevail we may hold a grudge against the other party and allow it to color our interactions with them going forward. Grudges have no power over anyone but the person carrying them. If we’re angry we may hold tight to them and they may keep us down and prevent us from moving forward. They can be crippling and will never solve any problems or help us find answers. It can be hard to let go of disappointment. We can blame everyone and everything for what goes wrong but that will change nothing. If we want our situation to improve we must let go and actively step forward. Our lives are always in our control and we can manage anything effectively to move ahead. We can accept differences and with patience and grace find the way forward through any conflict. Life is filled with challenges and we are certainly smart enough and wise enough to manage them. Every success is possible, even in disagreement, and we can find all the answers we need.

Some people like to argue and enjoy the intensity and dynamic of heated discussions. When we interact with them it may be difficult to find answers as they question every statement we make. It can be hard to get our point across if they dissect everything we say and oppose every suggestion. We don’t have to defend our position and we don’t need complete agreement in order to move forward. There are always possible compromises and adjustments to any plan. If we are open and flexible we will find the answers to address every concern and reach understanding.

There will be times when we won’t get our way and things will turn in a direction we don’t want. We may feel like we’ve lost the battle and carry anger away from the situation. Life is sometimes an uphill battle and sometimes we’re going to lose but that doesn’t mean we aren’t important and valuable. We can be open to new ideas and accept change when we must in order to keep moving ahead toward the goals we want the most. We can do anything even when things go wrong. We are strong and capable and with patience and determination we will find success.

Today if you’re struggling with a decision and unhappy about what’s happened, let go of any anger and look at your options going forward. Disappointments are just turns in the road. You can still get to your goals and succeed. Change direction and re-chart your course. Every destination is possible and you are strong enough and wise enough to get there.
