Enough

21 May

Everyone is unique and we all have different experiences as we go through our lives. There are billions of people on the planet and we’re all different. Our package of attributes belongs to us and nobody else. Even identical twins differ in some respects. We will meet all kinds of people and each one will be individual and specific to themselves. While we may understand we’re all different, there may be times when we yearn to be exactly like someone else. If we’re timid and quiet, we may wish to be gregarious and outgoing. Or we may want money and riches we don’t possess, or extreme beauty and poise. We can change most things about our lives and it’s good to have a goal, but if we obsess over a personal attribute we don’t have, we may begin to feel we aren’t good enough as we are. No matter where we are now, there will always be something more we can achieve. That doesn’t mean we’re less than we should be right now, or lacking in some way. It just means that life is filled with opportunities and if we want something more, we can do what is needed to attain it. We are completely perfect just the way we are for the lives we’re living. If we want to change something, how we look, what we do, where we work, or anything else, we can. We are perfectly capable of creating the lives we want the most, and with attention and determination we can make all our dreams reality. But while we’re pressing forward and reaching for something different, we can value where we are and honor the lives we now have. The gifts and benefits we have to offer can’t be given by anyone else. We are valuable and worthwhile just as we are, and the whole is blessed because we are here.

We are constantly bombarded with messages all around us that we should be somehow different in some way. They tell us we should never be satisfied with what we have or where we are and should do more, and be more. It’s good to strive to be the best we can be, but the world does not set the standards for our lives. We do. We decide what we’ll do and where we’ll go. All the other opinions are just noise. We know what we want, and have everything we need to do anything we desire. We can design our lives any way we choose, and find complete happiness.

If we aren’t meeting someone else’s idea of how they think we should be living, they may ridicule or criticize us, telling us what we should do and what changes need to be made. Everyone has their own ideas, and we can listen to anything we like, but nobody knows us better than we know ourselves. We’re in control of our own destiny and can decide how our lives will go. Every single goal is possible, and nothing can keep us from doing what we want the most.

Today if you feel you aren’t good enough or somehow don’t measure up, remember there isn’t anyone else like you in all of creation. You are rare and precious, and worth more than you can imagine. The whole world is enriched by your presence. You are perfect just as you are. Believe in yourself. Be confident and move forward. Every success you desire is waiting just ahead, and nothing can keep you from it. You are amazing, and incredible, and make the world wonderful.

Head Game

“All that a man achieves and all that he fails to achieve is the direct result of his own thoughts.”  James Allen, As a Man Thinketh

There are endless things we can accomplish as we go through our lives. We have goals we want to achieve and places we want to go. The world is a huge place filled with opportunities and we can do whatever we want, anytime we want. Every success is possible if we believe we can achieve it, and nothing is out of reach. Some goals require specific skills and abilities, and if we don’t now possess them, we can make a plan to gain them and move forward with confidence. But skills and abilities will only take us part of the way. We must be convinced we can succeed. If we don’t think we can do something, chances are we won’t be successful. Believing in ourselves and trusting our instincts and abilities will move us forward. If we doubt we have what it takes, and feel insecure and uncertain we can succeed, we may sabotage our own efforts. Constantly questioning ourselves, second guessing our options, and worrying we can’t make it, may can work against us, and prevent us from reaching the goal. There are endless things we can do, but we can’t accomplish anything unless we’re convinced we can succeed. We are capable of doing amazing things. We can stretch beyond what is comfortable and reach for something more. Nothing is too far or too complex for us to figure out. We are intelligent and powerful, and can do anything we desire. Every option is there for us, and we can reach every goal.

Everyone has their own ideas and opinions. If we share our plans and goals with them, they may not agree with us. They may tell us we’ll never be able to accomplish the task, it’s too hard, or will take too long. We are all entitled to our own opinions but they only belong to us. They are not rules of behavior for others. We don’t need permission or agreement to do anything we desire, and we don’t need the belief of others to succeed. Our lives are ours to design and we can do anything we like. Every dream is possible, and we can make them ours.

Everything we desire is there for us, but they won’t simply come to us because we want them. Dreaming about the lives we want the most will not make them happen. We must believe our dreams are possible, and then do everything necessary to make them ours. We are highly capable, strong and intelligent. We can do anything. Every destination is there, waiting for us. We can take the first step forward, and then the next, and soon we’ll reach every goal. We can do anything. The whole world is there for us, and we will have it.

Today if you’ve been dreaming about something you want to do but haven’t begun the journey, trust yourself. You are smarter and stronger than you think you are. Nothing is too difficult for you to accomplish. Take the first step. Look ahead and continue forward. Every destination is there for you and nothing is out of reach. Trust yourself. You are amazing and powerful. All your dreams are waiting for you, and you will win.

The Road

11 Mar

Everyday something new happens and we can’t see what’s coming next. There is no way to anticipate the unknown. All we can do is take one step at a time and face whatever presents itself as it arises. All roads have a destination and the road we’re on is going somewhere. If we’ve chosen the way ahead the destination may be clear and obvious. It’s easy to plan when we know the way forward and where it will lead. But life is uncertain and sometimes we get turned around and pointed in directions we never intended to go. People make decisions that affect us, things go wrong, unexpected events derail our plans, and endless other possibilities can knock us off course. If we’ve been pushed onto a path we didn’t choose, we may be uncertain about what will happen and unsure where we’ll end up. Foreign roads can be unsettling. When the terrain is unknown, and we can’t see ahead, it’s hard to know what to do. If we’re facing something we’ve never been through before and there is trouble and complications, we may feel lost and untethered as we try to find our footing. Stepping into the unknown isn’t easy, but we can trust ourselves and remember how strong and capable we are. We may feel lost for a moment, but we will find our way. The road may be unclear and murky ahead, but with each step we will see a little more. We have all the courage and wisdom we need to find our way through anything. Nothing is strong enough or confusing enough to hold us in place indefinitely. We’ll find the way forward, and in time, reach success.

There is no way to know everything ahead of time. Even when we plan carefully and chart our course with clarity and wisdom, things may go awry. There will always be many unknowns in every scenario. When the road turns unexpectedly, we may face problems that tangle up our plans and stop us in place. We can take the time standing still to look at all the options ahead and find the opening we need to continue forward. Things may go wrong, trouble may come, and everything may go up in smoke, but we are intelligent and wise, and will find our way through.

Sometimes things happen that completely derail our plans for the future. Everything we wanted to accomplish may suddenly be impossible, and all our ideas will no longer work. When that happens, we can sit down in frustration and refuse to move, or we can review every available option and find a new way to move forward. If we want to continue ahead, nothing will ever be powerful enough to stop us. Every dream is still there for us, and when we’re ready, we will make them ours.

Today if you’re on a road you don’t want to travel but can’t step away, be patient. Change is constant and soon you’ll be able to chart your own course. You are smart enough to manage any complication and find your way forward. Every dream is possible and with clarity and wisdom, you will gain the life you want the most. You are powerful and intelligent. Step forward with confidence. Nothing can keep you from success, and you will prevail.

Need To Change

21 Feb

We live in a huge world filled with billions of people. No matter where we are or how small our location, there will be others around us much of the time. It’s unlikely most of us will go through even one day without seeing or interacting with someone else. It’s nice to build strong relationships with those around us, which help us feel connected and cared for. But we’re all individuals and nobody is exactly like anyone else. Those differences are what bring variety and depth to our experience but they may also bring conflict when we disagree or when someone does something we don’t understand. If we’re in a situation where others want to do things a certain way and we disagree, they may encourage us to change and conform so things will be easier. Of course, we can do anything we like, and if we want to follow along, we can, but we’re entitled to our own ideas and opinions, and can choose our own way. We never need to change to fit someone else’s model. While it may be easier when everyone is on the same page and going in the same direction, we’re in control of our lives and can live them any way we choose. We don’t always have to swim downstream. If we want to, we have all the wisdom and strength necessary to turn and swim against the current. Our individuality and personal choices create the lives we want. If we’re happy where we are, we don’t have to move. But if we want something different, the whole world is there for us. Our unique perspective and influence bring richness to others and the world around us. Being confident in our choices, and choosing the life we want the most will bring us great satisfaction and happiness.

Life would be easier if everyone just stayed out of our way, did what we wanted, and didn’t question us. If we had control over everyone else, we could make our choices without any interruptions or complications, and proceed forward unhindered. However, we only have control over ourselves, and those around us may have very different views about what we should do and where we should go. We can listen to any advice that’s offered, and then with confidence, choose the road ahead we most desire.

There will always be many different ways to every destination, and we can choose any way forward we like. We can move along with everyone else on a well-known path, and eventually reach success. The common roads tend to be the easiest, but aren’t always the best. Stepping in a new direction will help us reach a little further, and gain new experiences that will open doors to increased knowledge, giving us additional confidence and strength. Our lives belong to us and we can do anything. We can reach goals others only dream of, and find complete success.

Today if you’ve been going along with others but want something different, step away and choose your own road ahead. You are intelligent and capable, and can manage anything that comes. Decide what you want, and then move forward with determination. Everything you desire is possible. Nothing is out of reach. Be sure of yourself, and step ahead. All your dreams are possible, and you will succeed.

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.

Reset Again

28 Oct

We are always in the process of changing. Every experience teaches us something new and we evolve and modify our behaviors as we go through our lives. But there may be some things we want to change that don’t come easily. Maybe we want to move to a new location, start a different career, lose weight, or a thousand other things that are important to us. When we want something different than we have, it will require us to change our lives. Our behaviors may need to bend in a different direction to take us where we want to go. We might have to change our physical surroundings or modify the road ahead. Change is always possible but it isn’t always easy. Sometimes we start on a new course and everything moves along well for a while. But then old patterns and behaviors return and we find we’re right back where we started. We can always reset and start again, and move forward toward the goal we’re seeking. Needing to reset doesn’t mean we’ve failed or the goal can’t be attained. It just means we haven’t yet adjusted completely to the new journey. We know where we want to go and what we want to accomplish, and with practice and time we can reach any destination we desire. We might not get there the first or second time we try. We might need to reset over and over until we’re ready to push forward and hold fast to the road we want to travel. Life is all about learning and sometimes we need to learn a little more before we can move toward success. If we get hung up, there is no shame in starting again. We can do anything and with determination can achieve any goal we desire. Every blessing is possible and nothing is beyond our reach.

There are few times in our lives when we can go from where we are directly to where we want to be. Every road is possible but few are straight and without complications. There may be many twists in the way ahead and we may take a few turns that push us off track, but if we remain focused, we will reach our goal. We have all the wisdom and courage we need to face any obstacle before us and find the way around it.

Before we start toward any goal, we must decide what we want to accomplish. Once we’re clear about what we want to do, we can make a solid plan for accomplishing the task. If we get distracted as we move ahead, and let our focus drop, we may find ourselves returning again and again back to the beginning. We can do anything we like and if we’re not ready to move ahead, we can wait. But our lives are important and we can achieve anything we truly desire. When we’re ready we can evaluate all the options possible and choose the best way forward.

Today if you’ve been working on a goal but find yourself returning again and again back to the beginning, decide what you want most. Your life is yours to design and you can do anything. Choose the goals you want to achieve, and then step forward with confidence. Success is always possible. You can have the life you dream about and reach any goal you desire. Be confident and step forward with clarity and determination. Every blessing is there for you, and you will prevail.

Troubled Waters

7 Oct

There are endless things that can go wrong every moment of every day. Complications may come, we might take a wrong turn, someone might do something that blocks us, the train might be late and we miss our appointment, or dozens of other scenarios. Some days it can seem like we’re in the middle of the Bermuda Triangle and nothing works. There is always trouble somewhere and eventually it will visit us. We may struggle to figure out what to do next and how to stay afloat as the waves crash overhead and we keep going under. Troubled waters will come but nothing stays the same forever. Life is constantly changing and as we tumble and twist trying to find our way, the answers will be there for us. We will untangle any mess or confusion, and the road ahead will open. We are strong and capable, and there isn’t anything we can’t comprehend and manage well. If we lose our footing, we’ll find it again. If we fall, we’ll climb back up. We are invincible and unbeatable. Nothing can hold us down indefinitely. Trials will come, mistakes will happen, and for a moment we may be caught up in confusion and disarray, but that is only temporary. We know what needs to be done, and where we want to go. Even in the midst of trouble, we can keep our focus. Our lives are a long journey, filled with experiences both good and bad. Learning as we go will give us the tools we need to move forward with confidence and reach any destinations we desire. We are powerful and wise, and nothing can keep us from our goals. Troubled waters are only a passage to the roads we most want to travel. Every dream is there for us. We will find them, and make them ours.

Nobody wants to suffer and we might wish for a life full of ease and happiness, where nothing ever goes wrong and we are always content and satisfied. That’s nice to think about but unfortunately, that isn’t how life works. There is a constant tug and pull as we push forward toward our goals. Sometimes things will go well, other times there will be complications and difficulty. There are always a lot of balls in the air, and some will inevitably fall, sometimes right on top of us. It doesn’t matter if things get complex and the road gets rough. We are strong and capable and can find our way through anything that lies ahead. Nothing can keep us from success and we will prevail.

When trouble arises, if we allow it to stop us from stepping forward, we will never achieve the goals we desire. It’s impossible to stand still and move ahead at the same time. We have everything we need to overcome any distress or adversity. If the road ahead is blocked and we cannot move forward, we can find another road. There are endless options possible and we can find our way to any goal we desire. Nothing is out of reach, and we can have the lives we want most.

Today if you’re in the midst of trouble and there are complications keeping you from advancing, step back and look at all the possibilities before you. There are endless roads to every destination and you will find the way forward. Nothing can keep you from success. You are wise and strong, and will find your way. Success is there for you, and you will win.
