Uncovering

12 Oct

Our lives are a reflection of our choices. Every decision we make takes us somewhere and changes our path in some way. We can’t predict anything and sometimes our decisions take us places we never dreamed we’d go. There is no way to see around the next turn or know what others will do. Even when we try to choose well, sometimes our plans go up in smoke. If we take the time to look at all the options before us, and determine which will work before we begin, we’ll have a better chance of reaching success. There are endless sources of information and we are often bombarded with ideas and suggestions from every direction. Some people think they know what we need and may try to influence us to follow their lead. Others may purposely mislead us in an effort to achieve something for themselves. Believing whatever we hear is fraught with trouble. The loudest voice and brightest light don’t always lead us where we want to go. The first options that appear may not be our best choice. If we are eager to move forward, we may jump ahead without looking, and that might work out for us, or may take us in the wrong direction. Instead of rushing ahead, we can take some time to uncover the truth in every situation and see the best road ahead. The paved, clear path that’s been well traveled may look good, but easy access doesn’t always lead to success. Following everyone else will only take us where they’re going. By deciding what we want the most and then taking the time we need to find the best way forward, we can reach any goal or destination. We are intelligent and can make excellent decisions. We know what we want, and with patience and clarity, we can uncover all the facts, and reach every destination.

If we’re in a situation that isn’t what we want, and we aren’t happy, we can decide how we will proceed. We can choose to stay and complain, and do nothing to change it, or we can decide what we really want, and then take the first step forward. Being in the same place for a long time doesn’t mean we have to stay there forever. Our lives are ours to design, and we can change anything at any time. We deserve complete happiness, and when we’re ready, we can achieve it. Every blessing is always there for us. Nothing can keep us from success.

Some people are very persuasive. They know what to say and how to say it to get others to follow them. We may fall under their spell and end up somewhere we don’t want to be. We have everything we need to uncover the truth in any situation. We can listen politely, and then investigate the facts until we discover what is real. We never have to go along with anything we don’t want, and with purpose and intent, can control every decision we make, and reach our goals.

Today if you’re being pressured to follow along, look at everything openly and objectively. Uncover the truth of the situation and make the best choice moving forward. There is great success waiting for you and nothing can keep you from it. Be confident, and stand strong. You are more powerful and wise than you imagine, and you will prevail.

Play It Again

10 Sep

Our lives belong to us and we are responsible for the decisions we make. We make choices and then face whatever consequences they bring. We can do anything we like, but if we don’t move forward in ways that take us to the things we want the most, chances are we won’t be happy. Life is complicated and there are all kinds of people who influence us and do things that may hold us back or affect us negatively. We can’t do anything about what others are doing, but we have complete control over what we do. If someone tells us to do something and we do it, only to suffer disappointment, failure or sorrow, we may try to blame them. “You made me do it!” we may protest, but that isn’t authentic. The influence of others can be strong, and if we’re under their authority we may have to do some things they direct, but those are exceptions. Our decisions are ours, and we own them completely. If we stay in a job we hate, or a relationship that is hurtful or abusive, we are deciding, for whatever reasons, that we want to stay more than we want to move. People are complex and make choices based on their experiences, impressions, hopes and a million other things. We deserve complete happiness and success, but if we don’t do what is needed to make them happen, we will never achieve them. Every decision takes us somewhere, and if we’re careful and look at all the possibilities, we can move forward and reach any goal we desire. Our happiness is our responsibility. All our dreams are there waiting, and we can make them ours.

We’ll all make a bad decision at some point in our lives. Once we recognize what went wrong, we can correct our course and start again. But if we find ourselves making the same bad choice over and over again, we can stop and evaluate what is happening. Repeating bad behaviors again and again will never take us to success. It’s like playing a record with a big scratch in it that keeps repeating the same music. It can’t move ahead, and neither will we until we uncover what is holding us back. We can do what is needed to change direction, and confidently step forward toward what we want the most.

Life is filled with possibilities and opportunities. We know what we want, but if we don’t believe we can achieve it, odds are we’ll never succeed. We don’t need to know everything about everything to be successful. By taking the first step forward and trusting ourselves to manage whatever we must to reach the goal, we will find our way to success. Nothing is too difficult or complicated for us to figure out, and we already have everything we need to prevail.

Today if you’re repeating the same mistake again, and are not moving closer to your goal, think about what you want the most. The road is already there for you. Stand strong and step forward. There isn’t anything you can’t do. Every blessing is waiting and nothing is out of reach. Be confident. You are amazing and capable, and every dream is possible.

Measures

3 Aug

As we go through our lives, we’ll face many challenges and trials. Some of them will be annoying and not serious, but others may be very difficult. We may face some desperately painful moments that push us hard and make us question our ability to survive. Nobody gets a perfect, easy life. We’ll all face trouble and problems, and agonizing times that try us. Sometimes we may find our way quickly and figure out what to do next, but other times we may be seriously confused and unsettled. They say desperate times call for desperate measures, but making decisions in the midst of desperation may take us down the wrong road. If we’re so entangled and embroiled in the situation that we can’t see the way forward, we may reach out and grab anything we can in the hopes that it will save us. Pulling things from the dark is a dicey scenario. We have no idea what we’ll get or what it will bring. It’s hard to be patient when we’re suffering and worried, but jumping to the first possible solution may create more trouble moving ahead. No matter what we’re going through or how desperate we may feel, we can stop and stand still and take the time we need to look around and see everything clearly. There is no problem without a solution. Every single answer we need will be there for us but if we run ahead in an effort to quickly end the pain, we may jump right over it. By remaining calm in the storm and standing still long enough to settle our thoughts, we will see what needs to be done and where we need to go. There isn’t anything we can’t manage and manage well. If we trust ourselves and take our time, we will find the way forward. The road is already there and by stepping forward with confidence we’ll reach success. We are stronger and more powerful than we imagine and nothing can overcome us or hold us down forever.

We may have a relationship with someone who continually makes bad choices and chooses things that bring distress and difficulty. If we’re closely entangled with them, their choices may bring us hardship. We only have control over ourselves and everyone has the right to choose anything they desire. However, if a relationship is uncomfortable, we can step back and decide how we want to continue. There is no need to endure endless turmoil because of a personal connection. We can set our own boundaries and decide how we will proceed. Every possibility is there for us and we can make choices that bring us satisfaction and peace.

When we’re struggling through a complicated and difficult time, we may have a lot of important decisions to make. It can be overwhelming to face many challenges and choices at the same time. Although there is a lot going on, we are in control of how we handle them. We can look at everything objectively and decide what is most important. After we settle that, we can move to the next issue, and so on. Rome wasn’t built in a day and we don’t have to solve everything at once. We can take things step by step and with patience and persistence, will prevail.

Today if you’re facing a very difficult situation that has knocked you down and you don’t know what to do, trust yourself. You are smarter and more capable than you think you are. Nothing is too complex or hard for you to unravel and understand. Take your time and step forward. All the answers are there for you. You will find them and reach success.

Fixer

12 Jul

Our lives are full of experiences. There are things we can control – our decisions, what we do, and where we go – and a lot of things we can’t. Although much of what happens is beyond our reach we are always in control of our own lives. The road won’t always be paved and we may face a time where it seems like everything we touch goes wrong. Problems will come, complications will arise, people will make decisions that impact us negatively, and crap will happen. We’re all going to go down in flames at some point. But no matter what is going on, no matter how bad everything seems, there will be an answer and a way out. When we’re under water with trouble, we may think we’ll never get through, but the answers we need will be there for us. We may have to search long and hard, but we can find them. When we’re suffering we may wish that someone would come and save us. It would be so great when we’re having a hard time if someone else would just fix it and let us move on. That’s a nice dream but it’s unlikely to ever happen. All our problems belong solely to us, and nobody is going to sign up to fix our lives and pave our roads for us. If we’re overwhelmed and can’t see our way clear, we can wait until things settle a bit and then decide on our next steps. We may try to ignore what’s gone wrong, denying there is anything amiss, and look the other way for as long as we like, but nothing will change until we face it head on and do what is needed to correct it. Standing still instead of unraveling what’s gone wrong will never take us where we want to go. We are intelligent and can find our way through anything that happens. By being patient and taking everything one step at a time, there isn’t anything we can’t accomplish. We are stronger and more powerful than we imagine, and nothing can hold us in place indefinitely. We can trust ourselves to solve any problem we must, and move forward toward success.

Everybody wants a life of ease and comfort where nothing goes wrong. Nobody dreams about suffering and going through terrible trials. We can do everything possible to try to prevent problems and stay out of trouble, and we might succeed in some ways. But there are billions of people sharing the earth with us, and the decisions they make may bring problems our way. We can’t stop anything from happening but we can be confident we can manage whatever comes.

Everyone is responsible for their own lives. There isn’t any designated referee who will be there to run interference, and block trouble before it reaches us. We are wide open and may get over run by something that takes us by surprise and complicates our lives in difficult and unsettling ways. Trouble comes to us all, but we are capable and can fix anything that goes wrong. We can be confident that no matter what the issue is, we’ll find the solution we need to move forward and reach success.

Today if you’re going through a difficult time and are beset by problems and complications, remember all the times you’ve been successful in the past. No matter what’s happening, you will find the answers you need to get through. You are strong and wise, and nothing can overcome you. Trust yourself and be confident. Every single success is possible, and you will reach them all.

Forever Wrong

24 Jun

Life is full of challenges and complications. Although we may feel confident about the roads we’re choosing, we share the world with lots of other people and they may have an impact on our decisions and outcomes. Everyone tries hard to live well and make good choices, but sometimes we don’t get all the facts we need, or may be influenced by someone else to choose something that goes wrong. When we make a bad decision, even if others were involved, we might find ourselves standing alone taking the blame. It’s uncomfortable to discover we got bad advice and took a wrong turn, but that doesn’t mean we are destined to be forever wrong. Everyone makes mistakes. Doing what doesn’t work teaches us what does. There isn’t a handbook for life that tells us to watch out for certain people or be extra cautious about upcoming decisions. We take things as they come and do the best we can. We’ll never get everything right every time, but if we get as many facts as possible beforehand, and take the time to see everything clearly, we have a better shot at success. Mistakes happen and although they may be unpleasant, they cannot doom us to a life of endless misery and woe. We are intelligent and capable, and no matter what’s happened we can find our way forward to success. A wrong turn doesn’t end the journey. The road will still be there and we can always find a way around any complication that arises. Every answer we need will be available and we will find them all. We learn what works by trial and error. Sometimes we’ll get everything right from the beginning. Other times we may falter and stumble, but nothing can hold us down forever, and we can get back up and try again. Success will be there for us even if we take the long way around. There is greatness in us, and sufficient wisdom and intelligence to do anything and go anywhere. By trusting ourselves and stepping forward with confidence, we will find our way forward, and reach success.

Some people are great about giving advice. They may instruct us and tell us how we should proceed, even if they’ve never traveled the road before. It’s easy to advise someone else when your neck isn’t on the line. If things go wrong, they won’t be anywhere near the disaster and can deny their involvement. It’s good to seek advice if we need help, but after everyone has given their opinion, we can trust ourselves to choose what will work best, and move ahead according to our own personal inspiration.

We already know what we want to do. The roads we travel are ours to choose, and others may disagree and try to influence us to follow them instead of taking our own path. Our lives belong to us and nobody knows us better than we know ourselves. We know where we want to go, and have everything we need to reach any destination we desire. Following someone else will never take us where we want to go. We can be confident we know what we want, and move toward our goals with clarity, sure of success.

Today if you’ve made a big mistake and feel like you’ll never be right again, remember all the times you’ve succeeded already. You are amazing and capable, and have everything you need to do anything you want. Trust yourself and be confident. The world is full of opportunities for success, and you will make them yours.
