Not Never

8 Nov

The world is a big place and there are endless opportunities to do things and unlimited places to go. We are in control of our lives and can design them any way we like and set any goals moving forward. We can make any decisions we desire but not everything will be easy to achieve. As we move along we may encounter serious problems, complications and delays as we try to push ahead. If we don’t have all the information we need to succeed, we may end up going in the wrong direction and fail to reach the goal. Failure is difficult to accept and can make us feel like we can’t do anything right. But failure is a great teacher if we take the time to see everything clearly and learn all we can from what went wrong. We may not reach the destination today, but that doesn’t mean we’ll never get there. Success is always possible and failure is just an indication that it hasn’t happened yet. Just because we didn’t make it to the goal this time, doesn’t mean the journey is over. There are countless roads to take, and if the one we’ve been on doesn’t take us where we want to go, we can step onto another. The only time failure is terminal is if we quit. It may be hard to start again, but quitting will certainly never take us anywhere. Of course, if we want to, we can give in and surrender to defeat, stay in our own lane and keep doing what we’re doing. But we have great potential and if we want to move forward, we will find the way to do it. We are smarter and more capable than we think we are, and when we’re ready there isn’t anything we can’t do. By trusting ourselves, and keeping our eyes focused ahead, we will reach every goal. The whole world is there for us and every dream is possible. We can be sure and confident that no matter what happens, we’ll reach success.

Routines are comfortable and powerful. When we do the same things over and over, we pretty much know what to expect. If we try something new and it doesn’t work out, we aren’t doomed to stay in place. There is great value and benefit to experiencing new things and opening new doors, and there will always be endless chances to try again. We can explore whatever we want, and each new experience will enrich us and enhance our understanding of ourselves and the world around us.

Change is constant and if we want something more than where we are, just turning a little to the left or right may open broad new horizons. We don’t have to completely upend our lives to bring more interest and value. Success isn’t defined by doing the extreme like climbing Mt. Everest or traveling the world. Success is ours when we open new doors around us and try new things. We don’t know what we’re capable of until we try. We have so much to offer, and every success is possible. Nothing is out of reach and we really can have the lives we dream of.

Today if your plans didn’t work out and you didn’t reach the goal, it’s not the end of your journey. If you still want to reach the destination, look at everything objectively and decide on a new plan. Learn all you can from where you’ve been and take that knowledge forward to help you succeed. You are the most amazing person in your life. There isn’t anything you can’t do. Be confident, trust yourself, and start again. Everything is there for you and you will win.

Off the Treadmill

1 Feb

Life is filled with opportunities and possibilities. No matter where we are or what we’re doing, there will be countless options available if we want them. We can change anything at any time, but it takes effort and a willingness to do what is necessary to facilitate any change we desire. Walking on a treadmill will keep us busy, but we will never move out of place. We will stay exactly where we are, no matter how much energy we exert. If we’re busy but we’re not moving closer to our goals, we can change our situation. If we’re in a job that is unfulfilling and isn’t moving us forward, or a relationship that doesn’t make us happy, or a thousand other things, and we’re ready to move on to something else, we can. Making a big change in our lives will take serious thought and contemplation. It may cause a disruption that may bring uncertainty as we transition to something new. But our lives are ours to design and our happiness is important. We can decide what we really desire, where we want to go, and what we really want to do. Every option is possible but they won’t all be easy to achieve. Some changes take a lot of work and time but if we’re determined and focused on the goal we can get there. We already know what we want, and have everything we need to make it ours. We deserve complete happiness, and never have to settle for second best. By deciding what we want the most, and then taking the first step toward the goal, we can begin the journey that will bring us satisfaction and happiness. Everything is there for us, and with patience and wisdom, we can trust ourselves to do what is needed to achieve anything. It’s all there waiting, and we can make it ours.

When we’re ready to make a change, those around us may not agree. It’s easy when everything stays the same, and change can make some people uncomfortable. We don’t need agreement or permission to do anything we desire. We can share our plans if we like, and then start forward according to our own desires. When problems arise, we will solve them, and if unforeseen issues complicate the road ahead, we will find the answers we need. We are highly capable and nothing is out of reach.

Routines and patterns are easy to maintain. We know what to do and pretty much what to expect. It’s tempting to stay in an unfulfilling situation simply because we’re used to it. But our dreams can never come true if we don’t pursue them. Nothing is going to come to us without effort. We are more powerful and capable than we think we are, and when we’re ready, nothing can keep us from success.

Today if you’re ready for something new, decide what you want the most and make a plan. Then take the first step forward, and keep your eyes on the goal. You are amazing and strong, and every destination is there for you. You can have the life you dream of. Be confident and keep moving ahead. Every possible success is there for you, and you will make them yours.

Perfect Timing

16 Sep

Our lives are complicated and busy, and we often have many things we want to accomplish. Everyone has their own personal goals waiting to be achieved, and although we may think about them often, because of other commitments, they may get pushed aside. We may think we’ll wait until things settle down, and we have more time to address them. After all, we have a lot to do and we’ll get to them eventually. Responsibilities tend to be constant, and there will always be something else to attend to. Waiting for the perfect time, and watching for a window when everything is settled and our time is wide open to do the things we want the most, is a fool’s game. The chances of ever reaching a complete pause are close to zero. Everything is constantly changing and until we pro-actively set time aside to address our own personal goals, we will likely never reach them. There will always be something that needs to be done, but our lives are important and we deserve complete happiness. By valuing the destinations we most want to reach and then setting time aside to move toward them, we will find great satisfaction and happiness. We own our lives but we must take control of them. If we don’t, time will pass and we may find years have gone by and we’re still standing in the same place. We deserve complete happiness, and by carefully planning and making our dreams a priority, we will have it. Nothing is beyond our grasp and with clarity and confidence, we can achieve anything.

It’s good to be helpful and serve others. We can serve in our communities, at work, within our personal circle of friends and family, and countless other ways. Helping others is noble and worthwhile, but we can be helpful and still make time for our own desires. It isn’t selfish to think of ourselves and push toward the destinations we want to achieve. Our desires are important and we can find ways to be helpful and still move toward our own dreams.

When we’re busy and overwhelmed it’s hard to think about our own wants and needs. If we’re stressed and it seems everyone wants a piece of us, it’s difficult to consider our own desires. There are lots of people around us and many may want our time and attention, but we are in control of our lives. We decide how much we can give, and can handle whatever we must and still take time for ourselves. We are important and our dreams are important. We can have the lives we want the most by managing our time in ways that allow us to move closer to our dreams.

Today, remember that you are the most important person in your life. Nobody will make your dreams come true but you. Plan your time in ways that lets you accomplish what you must and still move toward your personal goals. Every single dream is there, waiting. Step forward, and be confident. You are wise and capable. Nothing is out of reach, and you can claim the life you want the most.

In the River

16 Aug

We are in control of our lives and can do anything we want. We all have responsibilities and things that require our attention, but how we live and where we go is up to us. If we’re in a situation that isn’t working, we can step away and move in a different direction. Complaining about the situation will do nothing to change it. If we’re in a lake swimming and want to stop but the water is deep, we can tread water. Because the water isn’t moving in any direction we can basically stay in the same place. However, if we’re in a river and decide to tread water, we will never be able to remain in the same location. The movement of the river’s current will persist, and despite our efforts, push us continually down stream. Although we aren’t doing anything to keep moving, the water will carry us. The same is true in life. If we’re in a situation we don’t like but haven’t made any effort to step away, it will continue to carry us along to wherever it leads. If we do nothing, we are making the choice to continue following along. Looking away or treading water will not move us onto something else. We must decide to step onto a new road, and then begin. Our lives belong to us and our happiness is our own responsibility. If we just coast along and try to endure what isn’t making us happy, nothing will change. Nobody is going to come along and fix the situation for us. It’s all up to us. We can have the lives we dream about, but we must create them ourselves. Everything is possible and when we’re ready, nothing can keep us from any destination we desire. All our dreams are there, waiting. By stepping up and taking control, we can make them ours.

Some people love to complain. They talk about how bad their jobs are, grouse about their living conditions, complain about their salaries, and endless other topics. Nobody gets a perfect life and we all have situations and things we would like to change. Complaining is normal and when others share our misery, can help alleviate our frustration. But if all we do is complain and refuse to take action to change the situation, we become part of the problem. Nothing is permanent in life and everything can be changed. If we aren’t happy, we can decide what we most want to do, and then begin forward and change our situation.

Everyone has their own ideas about how life should go. What is perfect for one doesn’t work for another. We are a reflection of all the experiences we’ve had so far, and even if a scenario works for those around us, it may not be a good fit for us. We never have to go along to get along. Our lives are ours to design and before we do anything, we must decide what we want, and where we want to go. Once that is determined, we can plan our steps forward to reach success.

Today if you’ve been treading water and waiting for your situation to change, look at all the possibilities around you and decide how you want to proceed. There are endless opportunities available, and the goals you seek are within reach. Decide what you want the most and step forward with confidence. Nothing can keep you from your dreams. They are there for you and you can make them reality.

Whisper

21 Apr

Difficult challenges and trials are a natural part of our experiences here on earth. Nobody gets a continually charmed life where everything always goes well, and they never suffer. There are ups and downs in every life, hard times and easy times, and we may face extreme and serious problems. When trouble comes, and we feel pushed to the limit and unsure we can endure another moment we may believe we are doomed, and failure is inevitable. In those moments, even if we’re convinced we will not survive, there will be a tiny whisper in the back of our minds that tells us we can take another step. It may be small and quiet, but it will be there, always ready to comfort and cajole us to keep trying. No matter how sure we are of imminent disaster, there will always be the possibility of success. Even if it’s dark and the clouds above us are black and threatening, even if the wind is punishing and it’s hard to see, the road will still be there for us beckoning us forward. There isn’t anything powerful enough to hold us in place forever. We may need to stop and take a breath, we might need to rest and regroup, but with determination and focus, no matter how hard the journey is, we can prevail. Hard times will come, and we will surely be tested. We may have no idea at the beginning how we will get through, but we don’t have to see the end of the road to trust that it’s there for us. We can take one small step forward, and then take another. As we unravel each complication, we will get stronger and the road ahead will open a little more. In time, however long that takes, we will get through and the sun will shine on us once again. Every problem has a solution and every trial will end. No storm can last forever. We are stronger and more courageous than we think we are, and nothing, absolutely nothing, can overcome us. By trusting ourselves and believing we will prevail, we will succeed.

Some people delight in the suffering of others. They may laugh when we fall down, and ridicule us because we’re struggling to work through something difficult. It’s hard to understand what their motivation is, but their words mean nothing. Support from those around us is certainly beneficial when we’re trying to overcome a hard challenge, but if we don’t have it, we can manage whatever comes on our own. Every answer is already there for us, and with patience and determination we will find the way ahead.

We may face a situation that takes a long time to resolve. No matter what we do, we may not be able to improve things quickly. It’s hard to endure suffering for a long time, and we may grow weary. We can always give up and walk away, letting go of whatever it is we’re trying to accomplish, but turning away from success will never bring it to us. If we need to rest, we can, and then start again when we’re ready. Every single destination is there for us, and we have everything we need to win.

Today if you’re facing a big challenge, and aren’t sure how you can survive, trust yourself. You are stronger and more powerful than you imagine. Listen to that whisper that says you can prevail. Be confident and stand strong. Take one step forward and stay focused the road ahead. Every success is waiting, and you will reach it.
