Another Way Around

28 May

We can achieve any goal we desire and go anywhere we like. All options are possible, and there are unlimited things we can do, and endless places we can visit. Nothing is out of reach or too difficult for us to achieve, but we may not succeed our first time out. Even if we’re clear on what we want and have a good plan in place to achieve it, there may be times when the road getting there gets twisted and tangled, and we get stuck going nowhere. When things aren’t working out, we may think we just need to try harder, put in more time, and push with more strength. Those ideas work sometimes, but we may face a situation that no matter what we do, we can’t proceed on the road we’re on. Our plans may be fine but for reasons we can’t explain, they simply aren’t working. We can put our shoulder to the wheel and press harder, but if the road is going nowhere, it will be wasted effort. If we’re working hard and still stuck in the same place, obviously there is a problem. Instead of doing the same things over and over and hoping for resolution, we can stop and look at everything objectively. There are many ways to get to every destination, and we have endless opportunities to try. Sometimes a small adjustment is all that’s needed to pave the way ahead. Other times we may need to rethink the whole plan and come up with an alternative. We can do anything, but not everything will come easily. Complications may snag our progress, and we may get stuck, but nothing is permanent. We are intelligent and capable, and will find the answers we need to reach success. By being open to every possibility, even those that look strange, we’ll be able to find a new way forward that opens all the doors ahead. Success will always be there for us, and with patience and clarity, we will find our way forward.

Nothing stays the same forever. Everything changes and modifies as time goes by. What worked for us last year may not work now. Even if our circumstances are pretty much the same, our options for success may be different. We can let go of what’s behind us, take what we’ve learned from everything we’ve done so far and use that knowledge to help us find the answers we need. Nothing is out of reach and we have everything necessary to find the way forward.

We share the world with billions of other people, all having different experiences. When we’re searching for answers, we can reach out to those around us for advice. The road ahead may be new and foreign to us, but chances are someone else has already traveled it successfully and will have information that will help us. We don’t have to do everything alone. By including others in our search and asking for help, we’ll gain information and guidance that will pave the way ahead and help us reach the goal.

Today if nothing you do moves you ahead, stop and look at all the options possible. There is another way forward that will take you to success. Trust your instincts and step forward with confidence. Nothing is too hard to accomplish or too far away to reach. You are wise and intelligent, and will find the answers you need. Every single goal is possible, and you will reach them all.

Power Outage

16 Feb

Electricity is a wonderful thing. When we have a good source of it, we can cook, dry our hair, turn on lights, use our computers, and a thousand other important tasks. It’s great when everything is working well, and we hardly give it a second thought – that is until something comes along that knocks it out. A storm may happen that wipes everything out and the electrical grid no longer functions. When nothing turns on, we’re left shivering in the dark, and all we can do is wait, we remember what a blessing it is when everything works. In our personal lives, we may push ourselves to do more and more, and press against hard deadlines with all our energy and focus. It’s great to be completely inspired to accomplish something, but it’s impossible to keep up an all-out level of energy indefinitely. Just like a power outage, we may reach a point where exhaustion takes over, nothing is working like it was and we must regroup. When that happens, we can try to push forward through the struggle, but chances are our fatigue will get in the way. We are powerful and strong, but every system has its limit. Pushing beyond what works may end up costing us more time than if we pay attention to what we need and take care of ourselves first. Slowing down will not keep us from the goal. Stopping for a break will refresh us, and as we rest, new ideas will appear we may have missed in our rush to the finish line. We are capable of accomplishing great things and nothing can keep us from success, but we don’t have to do everything today. There is time to take care of ourselves, and work in ways that help us continue forward without completely depleting our energy reserves. By trusting ourselves and using wisdom, we can accomplish any goal intelligently and effectively. Success is always there for us, and we will achieve it.

Some people believe in giving everything they’ve got, and pushing beyond what is comfortable, in their desire to reach success. It’s good to strive for the goal and do what is needed to succeed, but we never have to extend further than what is reasonable. We can reach the destination we’re seeking without destroying ourselves in the process. By being thoughtful and focused, we can accomplish anything we desire, and with clarity, reach the goal.

Moving as fast as possible may get us to the prize quickly, but we may miss some important cues along the way. It does no good to reach a locked door first if we didn’t take the time needed to get the key before we arrived. Reaching the final door is just part of the objective. It’s important to reach it with everything we need to open it and take advantage of all its benefits. We are intelligent, and have everything we need to do anything we desire. We can reach any goal with patience and wisdom, and find great success.

Today if you’ve been pushing yourself harder and harder to get to a goal as fast as possible, remember to take the time you need to see everything clearly. All the answers are there for you and by focusing on the journey, you will find them. You are amazing. There is great success ahead, and nothing will keep you from it.

Turning the Page

15 Sep

We’ll all have good times and bad times, things will go well or we may fail, we’ll rejoice or experience heartbreak. Good experiences lift us and bring greater joy and hope for the road ahead. Hard times filled with worry, concern, or sadness, help us gain greater stamina and strength. If we have a very extreme event that hurts us deeply or completely changes our direction, we may feel stunned and unsure. When the world turns upside down, it’s hard to find our footing. We may stumble and get lost for a time, and begin to think we’ll never survive. But we are stronger and more resilient than we think we are, and as each moment passes, our confidence will increase and we’ll find our way forward. We can modify our plans for the future and stay where we are, or decide to completely change direction. Like turning the page in a book, we can change everything and start again somewhere new. The world is a huge place. There are endless destinations, and things to do. We are never restricted to where we are and what we’re doing. We don’t need agreement or permission from those around us to change our lives in any way or at any time. A new location with new opportunities opens the door to different experiences that expand our thinking, and bring the possibility of great happiness. We’re always in control of our lives, and never need suffer longer than we want to. If we’re ready to move on to something new, we can. Every option is possible and nothing is out of reach. The book of life is long, and we can turn the page to a new experience at any time. We deserve complete happiness, and with determination and confidence, will have it.

Personal heartbreak is very painful. When someone we love walks away, they leave a big hole in our happiness. If we’re devastated, we may think we’ll never get over it, and will be emotionally destroyed for the rest of our lives. That will never happen. No matter how much pain we’re in now, tomorrow will be better. Each day will bring healing, and in time, however long it takes, we’ll be whole again. We can trust that no matter how hard things seem right now, the road will straighten and we’ll be able to move ahead with clarity and confidence. Nothing can hold us down indefinitely. Every dream is still there for us, and we will reach them.

There can be great comfort in routine. We know what to expect and are used to how things work. However, if our lives are upended by something unexpected, everything may change. The road we were on may turn and we may find ourselves headed toward something we no longer want. There are endless roads possible and we can change direction at any time. We are more valuable and precious than we can imagine, and can do anything we desire. Despite what’s happened, nothing can keep us from success, and we can have the lives we want the most.

Today if your life has suddenly changed, and you’re unsure about how to proceed, trust yourself. You are powerful and strong. Decide what you want the most, and take the first step forward. You deserve complete happiness and nothing can keep you from success. Be confident. Every dream is there for you, and you will make them yours.

Keys

14 Feb

Our personalities are rich with expression and varied in how we interpret and manifest information as we move along. Nobody is completely the same all the time. We feel things differently depending on what’s going on around us and who is involved. Every day brings a new situation and we sometimes have to work hard to figure out what to do next. When we need to unlock something to get in, we may reach for our personal key ring. We might have many different keys to choose from, and in each instance must choose the specific one that opens the door we need. We may have a key for our car, our home, our office, the backdoor, maybe a shed or storage area, or many other options. They might look alike but each represents a unique opportunity to unlock the way ahead. Like the keys on our key ring, we have different personal interpretations and expressions for each situation we experience. Maybe we need our wisdom key for a particular problem, or our patience key when things get intense. We might use compassion to open the way to dialog for someone who is suffering, or simply take out the one that unlocks understanding. Each key we possess opens something new and teaches us more about the world around us. Everything we do tells the world who we are. When we use our keys appropriately in the right situations, the road ahead is often easier than if we mix them up. If we use force when endurance is needed, or leisure when we need to work, we might end up somewhere we didn’t intend to go. Learning how to manifest the right options when opportunities present themselves will move us forward toward the goals we’re seeking. We are wise and intelligent, and can find the keys that open any door ahead. Every goal is possible, and we are smart enough, and strong enough to reach them.

Every day things change and it’s impossible to know what will happen next. We learn new skills with each experience and carry all that information with us moving forward. When things go wrong or what we’re trying to accomplish gets stuck, it doesn’t mean we can’t get to the goal. It just means that for now, we don’t have the key to open this particular door. There are many roads to every destination, and we can turn in another direction and find the way ahead.

Like skeleton keys that open many doors, kindness and consideration can pave the way ahead, no matter what’s in the way. Few things make a situation better than a kind word, or a patient attitude. We can be open to new ideas and patiently work through any problems or issues that arise, confident that no matter what happens, we will reach the destination. We are capable of managing any complication, and with focus and determination, can reach any goal.

Today if you’re not sure you have all the keys you need to open the doors ahead, trust yourself. You are more capable than you realize. Every dream is possible, and you already possess everything you need to win. Be confident and step forward. Nothing can keep you from the goal, and you will reach great success.

Uphill

12 Dec

There are a lot of things we want to accomplish in our lives. We have goals to reach, destinations to get to, and endless activities to pursue. The world is a big place and the opportunities for growth and learning are unlimited. No matter where we are, or what we’re doing, there is always something new to try. We can fill our time with new ideas and experiences and have a rich, deeply satisfying life. Every goal is possible, and we can do anything. Each adventure will stretch our understanding and enlighten our perspective with new knowledge and an enhanced viewpoint. There are so many things to do, and if we want to, we can have lives filled with delight and interest. But change and growth don’t always come easily. The road to them may be long and we may have to invest significant time and energy to reach them. It’s like climbing a hill. Small hills may represent things we want to do that can be accomplished quickly. A small rise is easy to climb and we hardly expend any effort at all overcoming it. But bigger goals require more from us. If we have to climb a big hill that’s covered with rocks and brush, it’s hard to navigate upward and we may tire and struggle to reach the top. But the rewards we gain are commensurate with the effort we must expend to get them. Small gains make us happy but big accomplishments bring great satisfaction and benefits that enrich us and give us intense gratification. We can do anything we desire, but success in each instance depends on what we’re willing to invest in gaining it. We can climb the Mount Everest of goals and reach the pinnacle peak, or we can simply stroll along and take an easier route. Our lives are ours to design, and the happiness we achieve will be reflected in the choices we make. Life is long and we are highly capable. We can accomplish any desired dream and have the lives we want the most.

Routines and patterns can be very powerful. When we do the same things every day, we know pretty much what to expect and may feel comfortable and relaxed. But routines cannot bring excitement and new experiences that refresh us and teach us more about ourselves and the world around us. If we’re complacent, we may feel content, but we will never know what we could do or how far we could go. We are responsible for the lives we lead. We can extend ourselves to reach beyond where we are, and gain greatness moving forward.

There are many exciting opportunities possible, but waiting around and hoping they will simply appear will not bring them to us. Wishing for a richer, more satisfying life will change nothing. Every possibility is available to us and if we want more, we can do what is needed to create the lives we desire. Our dreams are within our grasp, but we must reach for them and make them ours. We can take control and step forward toward the goals and destinations we want, and find true happiness.

Today if you’ve been keeping to a routine but want something more, look around and decide where you want to go. You are smart and capable, and can have the life you desire. Take a step forward and open a new door. You can do anything and you will win.
