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.

It’s About Time

24 Aug

We often have many things to accomplish with our time and if we are overloaded we may dovetail items in an effort to get everything done.  Although we call this multi-tasking, current research indicates it’s impossible for us to concentrate on more than one thing at a time.  If we crunch everything together and push through them all at once we might get them done but we will never be able to pay attention to all the details needed to get everything done well.  When we’re pressed and feel pressure to finish projects we may believe we have no choice but to do them all at once.  Getting many things done is helpful when there is a lot to do but if we have to go back and fix things because we didn’t do them well the first time it may take more time in the end than if we had waited until we could do them right.  There is a balance between doing things and doing them well.  We live in an immediate gratification world.  Everyone seems to want everything right now and it can be hard to keep up.  We can acknowledge our abilities and recognize time constraints, and then make a plan that will allow us to move forward while still giving us the time we need to be successful.  No matter how much there is to do, we are in control of how we proceed.  We can be thoughtful and wise, and move forward effectively by carefully assessing what we need to do and the best way to get it done.  Success is always there for us.  We have everything we need to handle even very stressful situations and find the best way through.

Some people are very impatient.  When they want something done, they want it done immediately.  If they are powerful and task us with a project we may feel the need to drop everything else to address their request.  That may work sometimes but all our projects are important and if we stop in the middle of something to start another task we may lose our focus and momentum.  When we return to the first task we may have to start all over to find our way through.  Going backward will never take us forward.  Even if someone asks us to do something right away, we can decide where our priorities lie and make the best decision to manage everything.

We all want to be helpful when others ask us for assistance.  If we always agree to do everything we’re asked to do we may find our lives are filled with the needs of others and little time to live for ourselves.  If we are encompassed with chores and tasks we will likely burn out and feel frustrated.  We are in control of our lives and we never have to do more than we are comfortable with.  We can say no when we need to.  Our time is ours to manage and we can handle it in ways that bring us joy and happiness.

Today if you’re overwhelmed with everything you must accomplish, make a plan to get the most important tasks completed.  Be sure to schedule time for yourself to take a break and refresh.  You are capable and strong and can do anything you choose.  Remember how important you are and plan your time in ways that bring you confidence and joy.  There isn’t anything you can’t do and do well.  Take it step by step and you’ll succeed.
