Getting Caught Up

10 Jul

We’re all individuals with unique talents, ideas, and gifts we share with the world. Some people are passionate and outspoken about what they want and where they’re going. If we’re around someone who is loud and charismatic, and intent on making everyone believe in their cause, there may be a lot of excitement and activity. Before we realize it, we may get caught up and join in. We might follow along just because others are doing it, and go wherever the group is headed. We can certainly do anything we like, and take any road we want to. But our lives are ours to design, and if we don’t stop to examine exactly what we’re going along with, we may end up somewhere we never wanted to go. We are important and our dreams are ours alone. Following someone else’s dreams will never take us to our own. Our lives are unique to us and we can design them any way we choose. Every destination we desire is there for us, but we’ll never reach them if we follow someone else. Charismatic people may be influential and powerful, but we are always in control of our own decisions. We can listen to anything that’s being offered, and then choose the path moving forward that takes us where we most want to go. We know what we want, and are powerful enough, and wise enough to achieve it. We are responsible for creating our own destiny, and can do anything we desire. Nothing is too far away or too difficult for us to accomplish. Every single dream is possible, and with determination and focus, we will succeed.

We live in a monetary world. People with a lot of money often have a lot of power. If we admire financial success, we might believe wealthy people somehow know more about life than we do, and defer to their decisions. Money is a great tool, but it isn’t wisdom. Being rich doesn’t translate into being wise, or intelligent, or intuitive or anything else. We know ourselves completely, and don’t need to rely on anyone else’s opinion of what we should be doing with our lives. We know what we want, and we know how to get it. By moving forward with confidence, and trusting ourselves, we can reach every goal and every destination.

We may be in a situation where others around us have chosen a specific road moving forward, and are encouraging us to go with them. If all our friends and family members are going along, we may feel great pressure to conform. We can do anything we like, and sometimes just to keep the peace we may acquiesce. But our lives are ours to design and they never need to fit anyone else’s model. We are smart and capable, and can choose for ourselves. Nothing can keep us from the goals we desire, and every dream is possible.

Today if you’ve gotten caught up on someone else’s road, stop and think about what you really want. You are in complete control of your life, and don’t need permission or agreement to do anything you desire. Be confident, and move ahead with purpose and clarity. Every dream is already there for you. Step forward, and claim it.

Pocketful of Diamonds

18 Jun

Our lives are full of endless experiences. We have responsibilities we must take care of, chores to do, people to see, details to attend to, and unlimited things can happen that get in the way and complicate our progress. In the midst of all of this, we have our personal goals and dreams we want to achieve, and places we want to go. Life can be very busy and sometimes it seems we have so much going on it’s controlling us instead of the other way around. We may get overwhelmed with what we have to do, and wish for a life of ease and comfort where someone else takes care of all the pending tasks and jobs for us. While that may be possible, there’s a lot to gain from a life filled with activity and opportunities for learning. Every experience we have, even the annoying ones, teach us something of value to carry forward. Like collecting a pocketful of diamonds, we add valuable attributes and understanding as we move along. Diamonds are very expensive and rare, but what we learn as we move forward is more precious and has greater value. Nobody enjoys being frustrated or going through a difficult situation, but the things that challenge us and make us work to find answers teach us a lot about ourselves and the world around us. We become more patient as we work through problems, and wiser as we find solutions and ways to cope. Life is sometimes hard, and we will all face times when we feel unsure and lost in the middle of a difficult and demanding issue. But we are highly capable, and have everything we need to find our way through whatever comes. We can manage every trial and obstacle, discern what needs to be done, and reach every success. Nothing is beyond our abilities, and we are always powerful enough, and strong enough to prevail.

It’s nice to think about being on a beach, lying in the sun, walking on the sand, and playing our days away. We can dream of a life of luxury and comfort, but if that’s not possible, we can still experience joy and peace in our lives, even in times of stress and uncertainty. Being comfortable within ourselves and confident in what we’re doing will help us find relief and satisfaction even during difficult times. We are intelligent and competent, and able to navigate any situation successfully. Trusting ourselves to find the answers we need will help us move ahead, sure we will succeed.

Life is uncertain and even when things are going well, we may worry about what’s beyond the next curve. We never know what lies ahead, and we may face difficult, crazy days that push us to the limit of what we think we can endure. It doesn’t matter what comes, we will prevail. We already have everything we need to get through anything we must. We can rely on our wisdom and intuition to move us forward. Every success is possible, and nothing can keep us from it.

Today if you’re dreaming of an easier life, remember how resilient and strong you are. There isn’t anything that can overcome you. You are more valuable than a pocketful of diamonds, and nothing can replace the gifts you bring. Be confident and step forward, sure of success. You are amazing, and the whole world is blessed because you are here.

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.
