Change of Heart

11 May

We’re all in control of our lives and decide at every moment what we’ll do next. We know ourselves better than anyone else, and we know what we want the most. However, life has its own momentum and if we don’t decide how we’ll spend our time, the situations we’re in may decide for us. It’s easy to become complacent when we get used to what’s going on. Change takes attention and effort, and when we’re busy taking care of business, we may simply keep going and ignore our personal discomfort. Even if we’re not happy we may decide it’s good enough and just deal with it. We may continue to stay in a job we don’t like because it’s easier than looking for what we really want. We might stay in a relationship that isn’t working because we don’t want to be alone and just cope with the disappointment. Perhaps we keep repeating a behavior we know is hurting us but haven’t yet been able to muster the courage and attention we need to stop. Or any of a thousand different scenarios. Our lives are ours to design and we can do anything we like, but our happiness is important. Our dreams are important and we can change anything at any time that will move us closer to them. We can decide what we really want in our lives, and then take the first step toward making it ours. All we need to begin is a change of heart. By determining that our personal happiness is critical to our well-being, we can identify what is keeping us from it. We can make the changes necessary to move us toward the destinations we most desire, and reach complete happiness. Everything is possible and there isn’t anything we can’t do. Our lives belong to us, and with focus and determination, we can have the lives we desire the most.

The world is filled with opportunities and we can do anything we want. We can change anything that’s holding us in place – our location, our jobs, those we associate with, what we’re doing, or what needs to be done. We control our own destinies and can never be held is place when we’re ready to move. There is no need for us to get permission, and we don’t need approval for any decision we choose. All we need is to decide what we want, and then step forward to accomplish it.

Life isn’t always easy and the life we want won’t simply arrive because we desire it. If we don’t make a plan and decide where we want to go, someone else will make it for us. Nobody knows us better than we know ourselves, and no one else can possibly know what we want the most. We can take charge of our decisions, and decide our next steps. Every dream is possible if we’re willing to do what is needed to make it ours. If we’re determined and focused, we can step forward and make them all come true.

Today if you’ve been dreaming about how you want your life to go but are still in the same place, decide what you want the most and take the first step forward. You are more powerful and capable than you realize, and can accomplish anything you desire. Be confident and sure. Every dream is possible, and you will make them yours.

Around the Corner

5 Feb

When we’re on the road toward a goal, what’s right in front of us is visible. We can see where our very next steps will take us and with inspiration and focus, can move forward. If we’re careful and thoughtful, often times our plans work out and we reach the destination we’re seeking. Although we can see what’s coming up next, there is no way to see what lies around the corner further on. We can try to guess based on what’s happened in the past, but nobody can read the future and it’s impossible to know for certain what will happen next. If we’re determined to reach a goal no matter what, we may blunder ahead without looking and simply hope that by being forceful and confident we’ll be able to push through whatever is in the way. That might work sometimes, but if serious problems arise, trying to muscle through without acknowledging them will likely cause more complications. Blind ambition may ultimately keep us from achieving the goal. There is no way to be prepared for unexpected and unknown eventualities. But we can be open and look at everything clearly, and acknowledge when the road turns and we need to modify our plans. We never know what will happen next, and if what we’re doing now no longer works, we can adjust our plans and try something new. Our original plan may have been good, but it’s not the only way forward. There are always many roads to every destination. If the one we started on has stopped, we can look at all the other possibilities out there, and find one that works. Every goal is reachable and we are smart enough to figure out how to reach them. Success will always be possible, and we will prevail.

Some people have very defined ideas about how life should go. They may believe there is only one right way to do things, and make their plans accordingly. Life is filled with surprises and unexpected developments. Nothing is permanent and what worked in the past may no longer be viable. There is never only one way to accomplish anything. Failure is never the goal, but if we hold onto our original idea and it doesn’t work, that’s what will likely happen. We are smart, and can be open to every option. Looking at all the possibilities will help us choose the way forward, and ensure our success.

We make our decisions based on the information available to us at the time. Nobody tries to make bad decisions or mistakes on purpose. Sometimes things change or we get more facts we didn’t have when we started out. Being flexible and allowing our plans to change will help us adjust to any turns in the road, or detours ahead. We are intelligent and wise, and have everything we need to prevail. We can trust ourselves to find the way forward, and with determination and focus, reach any goal.

Today if your plans aren’t working out the way you expected them to, step back and look at everything openly. You are wise and intelligent, and nothing can hold you in place. You can change direction and choose the best way forward. Be confident. Every answer you need is already there for you. Nothing can keep you from reaching your goal and achieving great success.

Already There

19 Jul

We can do anything we want in life. We can push our limits and try new things, go to new, faraway places, and try anything that captures our interest. Sometimes we may feel unsure about our next steps and if someone asks us what we want to do, may reply that we don’t know. However, it’s unlikely that’s true. We always know what we want. We may be unsure we can get it, or concerned about what it will take to accomplish it, but it’s already there, tucked away in our minds, waiting. The question isn’t what we want to do or where we want to go. The question is are we ready to do what it will take to get there. There is no rush to make our dreams come true, and we can certainly take our time until we feel confident. But each day we live a life that isn’t making us happy, is a day traded away that cannot be recovered. Every single thing we want is possible – every single thing. Nothing is beyond our capabilities. We have what it takes to get the life we want. Once we’ve defined what that is and are ready to start moving toward it, nothing can hold us in place. The world is a huge place with unlimited possibilities. We’re only limited by our own decisions. We can stay where we are, where we know how things will go, or we can confidently take the first step toward the life we really want. We deserve complete happiness and choosing to make our dreams a reality will bring it. Every day is a blessing. We can make the most of each one and press forward toward the goals we desire most. Every success is waiting and they can all be ours.

Life flies by in a hurry. When we’re busy with details and responsibilities, our days may rush past without notice. We look up and another week has gone by. We can’t hold time back but we can make sure we’re living as fully as possible every moment. Nobody is going to make our dreams come true for us. Nobody but us can create the lives we desire. We already possess everything we need to reach any destination we choose. It’s all there for us. We just need to begin.

Sometimes our lives may get complicated and twisted up with all kinds of commitments, details, chores, and responsibilities. We may overextend our time and find ourselves rushing from one task to the next, barely noticing the world around us. It’s easy to get over involved in doing and forget to value our personal needs. We can put our lives on hold while we serve others around us, but it’s impossible to actually live our lives when we keep them in a holding pattern. Every goal we want is possible. We can plan effectively to ensure we have the time we need to achieve what we want. If we’re diligent and purposeful, we really can have the lives we dream about.

Today if you’ve been struggling, trying to figure out your next move, think about what you really want. You already know where you want to go. Decide to start moving toward your dreams and make them yours. Every blessing is possible and you can do anything you desire. Be confident and step forward. Create the life you want and you’ll find great happiness and satisfaction.

The Most

8 May

There are endless things we can do with our lives. We can accomplish any goal we choose, go anywhere we want, and do anything we desire. But life is complicated and busy, and sometimes what we want the most gets buried under the other things pressing on us. There are responsibilities requiring our attention and an endless list of things that need to be done. It’s easy to get busy doing details and checking boxes off, and push aside the one thing we’ve been wanting to do. We can spend our time any way we like but one thing is certain – we will always do what we want to do most. We may think that’s ridiculous – we don’t want to spend our days doing chores or taking care of endless details more than anything else. However, we’re always in control of every decision we make and everything we do reflects our choices. If we push aside what we desire in order to do things we feel we must, we decide that’s where we want to be. Of course, responsibilities must be tended to and we want to be responsible in our actions. It’s possible to take care of our duties and still make time to do the things we want the most. If we don’t make our dreams a priority, we may find that time has slipped away and we haven’t accomplished what we wanted most of all. Our lives are ours to design and we can be responsible and still do all the things we want to accomplish. If we’re very busy it will take careful planning, but we’re certainly capable of finding the way. Our lives flash by in an instant. We can take control of our time, manage what needs to be done, and ensure we accomplish the desires of our hearts. Every dream is possible and we can achieve them. We can have the lives we desire and do all the things we want. Every goal is reachable and we are strong enough, and wise enough to find our way to them.

Everyone has their own ideas about how things should go. Those around us may press us to keep our focus on the tasks at hand and not spend our time dreaming about other things. There will always be more work to do and tasks to accomplish, and we’ll never run out of details that need our attention. It’s up to us to make time for the things we want to do. If we plan for personal time to address the goals we most want to achieve, we’ll find get satisfaction and happiness as we reach them.

When we’re very busy with lots of pressing details, it may seem impossible that we’ll ever have time for ourselves. If we don’t control how we spend our time, life and those around us will control it for us. Nobody knows what we need more than we know ourselves. No matter how busy we are, we can step back and take the time we need to do the things we want most to accomplish. If we’re persistent and continue step by step to move closer to our goals, we’ll reach them and find great success.

Today if there’s something you want to do but your schedule is packed, take a step back and plan some time just for you. Take the first step toward your goal and each day move forward a little more. Soon you’ll reach the destination you desire and find success. Your life is yours to design. Make it the way you want it and you’ll find great happiness and satisfaction. It’s all there for you. Step forward and make it yours.

Not An Option

11 Jan

There are endless possibilities to try new things as we go through our lives. We can push our limits and go for any goal we choose. If we pursue all the things we desire, our lives will be filled with interest and satisfaction. We can reach for any experience we’re pondering and move toward it at any time. New things can be intimidating, but if we knew failure wasn’t an option and success was guaranteed, imagine what we could do. We could climb the highest mountains, go to the ends of the earth, and accomplish everything we imagine. Of course, there are no real guarantees in life, but when we want to try something new, if we decide failure isn’t possible before we begin, chances are we’ll succeed. If we believe nothing can stop us, every complication will be diminished and we’ll find a way around every blockade. Our confidence will take us through any problem and we’ll keep moving forward. Nothing can stop us if we’re willing to do what it takes to succeed. Believing in ourselves, trusting our instincts, and knowing we will not stop – no matter what – will take us all the way to the finish line. There isn’t anything we can’t do. We have everything we need to win and when we’re convinced we will prevail, nothing can stop us. We are capable of great things and are wise and strong. We can do anything we think we can. Every dream is possible and we can have the lives we most desire. If we believe we will succeed, nothing is out of reach.

We’re in control of our lives and if we’re not happy or feel unfulfilled we can change where we are and what we’re doing. We can’t control all the circumstances around us, but we can control what we do about them. If we’re in a difficult situation, complaining and doing nothing won’t help. We can change our position and create a better life that brings us happiness and contentment. Life isn’t in control of us, we are. If we’re not happy, we can make choices and turn toward something better. In the end, we all get the lives we wanted most based on the decisions we’ve made.

Fear may be a factor when we’re seeking something new. We know where we are now and have a good idea of what we can expect going forward. Stepping away from what we know toward foreign territory can be unsettling but our best experiences come when we push ourselves. There are endless possibilities and incredible adventures waiting for us. We’re brave enough to step toward them and open our lives to every option. Life is a great blessing. Living it to the fullest, taking every chance at happiness, and embracing new ideas will bring us incredible happiness and complete gratification.

Today if you’ve been thinking about pushing toward something new but aren’t sure you can succeed, convince yourself that failure is not an option. You have everything you need to manage anything that stands in your way. Every dream you imagine is possible. Push forward and be confident. You can do amazing things and every possibility is there for you. Nothing can keep you from success.

Mission Control

4 Jun

Control is an illusion for anything outside ourselves.  We can’t control what other people do, how things happen or when something will occur.  There are a lot of variables in each moment and we have to be ready for the changes that will inevitably happen.  Although we don’t have any control over anything around us, we have complete control over ourselves.  We’re in charge or our behavior and the choices we make with each passing moment.  To say “I couldn’t help it” after making a poor choice is just an excuse.  Whether we admit it or not, we are responsible for every step we take, every action we display, and everything we say and do.  Nobody is perfect and when there is conflict or a lot going on there may be times when we do things we regret.  It’s perfectly normal to make mistakes but we must accept our ownership of them.  It’s inappropriate and dishonest to try to push a bad decision off onto others or blame the situation.  We always know what we’re doing.  When we’re upset and confused, there is no off-site mission control that will take over for us.  We’re in charge and must forge ahead no matter the circumstances.  Taking the time to see everything clearly before we jump into a quick decision will help us.  Every decision we make will take us somewhere.  We can remember the destination we are seeking and make the choices that will take us closer to it.  We have all the wisdom and intelligence we need to lead strong, successful lives.  We can be in control and move forward toward the goals we value most.

If we’re unsure about what we’re doing or don’t really know where we want to go, when it’s time to make a choice we may lean on others or follow someone else.  It’s easy to ride in the backseat.  If we aren’t driving we don’t have to know where we’re going, we don’t have to find the way forward, and we can simply relax and enjoy the ride.  But if we stay in the backseat we will only go places others have chosen.  Our lives cannot truly belong to us if we don’t direct our plans.  We have enough courage to step up front and decide where we want to go.  Every destination is possible and we can find our way step by step until we reach success.

It takes courage to live the lives we want the most.  We must be willing to try new things and face the possibility of failure.  We know where we are now, it’s comfortable in routine, and we know what to expect, but staying in the same place will never take us where we want to go.  Every option is available if we are willing to do what is needed to achieve it.  We have all the courage and strength we need to make our dreams come true.  We don’t need to rely on others to take us where we want to go.  We can drive our own train and reach any destination we desire.

Today if you’ve been unsure about the way ahead and are tempted to follow others instead of being in control, remember how strong and effective you are.  You know what you want.  Be courageous and step forward.  There isn’t anything you can’t do.  You are more powerful than you realize.  Every dream can come true.  Take control and push ahead.  Success is waiting for you and you will reach it.

Starting Over

2 Jan

Every day we have the opportunity to change anything we desire in our lives. If there is something we don’t want to continue doing, someplace or situation we want to leave, or anything else we want to modify, the chance is always there for us. Sometimes we feel the need to change simply because we want something new or what we’re doing isn’t making us happy. Other times, outside events trigger the impetus to move in a new direction. The beginning of a new year, the end of a job or relationship, a move to a new location or many other events may prepare us to turn our lives toward something new. We have unlimited chances to change anything we desire and when we’re ready the process of modification and adjustment can begin. There are no limitations on what we can do and we need not stay on any road that isn’t taking us where we want to go. Change is always possible. We can define the changes we want to make and then do what is needed to make them a reality. Nothing is out of reach. We can do anything we truly desire and create the lives we want most. We are always in control of our decisions and no matter what is happening around us or what influences press us, we can choose any path we desire. We have all the control and wisdom needed to do anything. Once we decide where we want to go and what we want to do, we can change direction and move toward success. Life is an incredible blessing and can be fulfilling and satisfying. Everything is in our power. There isn’t anything we can’t do.

Sometimes we may end up in situations and patterns that don’t work for us. Perhaps we adopt behaviors that become routine but aren’t taking us where we want to go. Maybe we continue something that confounds our ability to achieve a personal goal, or someone depends on us too much and the time we spend with them keeps us from doing what we need to move forward in our own lives. Or we find ourselves caught up in someone else’s complications and problems in ways that keep us from our own focus. There are endless distractions around us but we can manage our time effectively and keep our eyes focused on what we really want.

There is no one right way to live life. We can design our lives any way we desire and work toward any goal we choose. We can honor traditions and still live our lives in ways that express our own individuality. No matter how long we’ve been doing something one way, we can start over and begin again on a new path. We are free to choose anything we desire and nothing can prevent us from achieving success. Life is long and we have all the chances we need to create the lives we want the most.

Today if you feel like you need to start over and change your direction, look ahead and choose the path that will take you where you most want to go. Make decisions based on the success you desire and move forward with courage. You have everything you need to achieve anything. Nothing is too difficult for you and you will reach any destination you desire. All your dreams can come true. Start today and move forward with confidence. Everything is there for you and you will reach it.
