Too Hard

3 Feb

There are endless things we can accomplish in our lives. We can achieve goals, go to new places, and reach success in many ways. There may be times we want to achieve something that’s difficult and ambitious. If there are a lot of possible complications, or we must accomplish many demanding steps before we can even start, we might think it’s just too hard to accomplish. It’s like deciding to climb a big mountain. First, we have to get in good physical shape, which depending on how things are now, may take a lot of time and arduous work. Then we have to learn everything about mountain climbing, what complications may arise, what to do when the altitude gets high and oxygen gets low, and dozens of other things. Then when we’re ready, we have to practice many times on smaller hills. Finally, after we’ve done everything we can to prepare, we can set forth to climb the mountain. When we first decided we wanted to do this, we may have had no idea what was involved in getting ready, and after we get all the facts, we may decide it’s too hard to attempt. Of course, we can change our minds about anything at any time, but if the goal is something we really want to accomplish, we can find a way to do everything we must to achieve it. If we push ourselves beyond what is comfortable in order to accomplish something great, the satisfaction we gain when we succeed will bring great richness and happiness to our lives. Some things are very hard to do, but the difficulty level doesn’t decide our success. We are stronger and more powerful than we think we are, and if we’re determined and focused, nothing can keep us from our goal. Every dream is possible, and we can have the lives we desire.

When we’re pushing toward a big goal, it’s great to have the support of those around us. Having our own personal cheering section can lift us when the road gets hard, and give us the courage to continue when things go wrong. But we don’t need the agreement of others to do anything we want to do. We can design our lives any way we like, and achieve every goal that moves us forward. We can do anything we desire, and with confidence, every dream can be ours.

If we’ve been pushing forward for a while and the way ahead is difficult and filled with problems and complications, we may tire of the struggle and begin to think we can’t succeed. We can step back and look at everything objectively, and get all the facts. If the goal we desire is out of reach right now, and everything is standing in our way, we can set it aside for a time until our situation changes. Nothing is permanent and eventually things will fall into place more easily, and we can start again. Every goal is possible and with careful planning, and constant diligence, we can go anywhere and do anything. Nothing is out of reach, and we will prevail.

Today if you’ve been trying hard to get to a destination you desire, but there are a lot of detours and setbacks, decide how you want to proceed. You are strong enough and wise enough to find the way forward. Choose your next steps and move forward with clarity and confidence. Every dream is possible, and you will succeed.

Transformation

22 Apr

There are times in our lives when we may want to make a change. Maybe we want to stop a habit, be more open minded or patient, or change the way we behave in certain situations. We can do anything we like but even if we’re devoted to the new idea, chances are it won’t happen the minute we decide. Patterns and habits take time to modify. When we’re used to doing something a certain way, we may repeat the behavior without even thinking. It may come naturally because it’s been our common expression in the past. Change is always possible but the longer we’ve repeated a pattern, the more time and effort it may take to change it. If we’re committed, we can manage whatever is necessary to make it happen. We can design our lives any way we want and are never stuck with anything we don’t want. There are endless things we can do and unlimited ways we can express ourselves. If we don’t want to continue something, we can choose a new way forward. We can change anything, but we must be diligent and patient as we navigate through the steps necessary to make it happen. Although our desire may be real, we must learn new behaviors and patterns to replace the ones we’ve been carrying. Everything is possible and if we’re determined we can do anything. We can have the lives we want the most and be the people we want to be. If we take one step at a time and are attentive and conscientious, we will reach success.

It would be great if we could make desired changes happen instantaneously. Unfortunately, whatever we want to modify will take time and effort. We may start the first day filled with determination and positive energy that we’re headed exactly in the direction we want to go. But then something may go wrong, unexpected complications may derail us and by the end of the day we may doubt we can actually accomplish the change we desire. We can learn new ways to cope with problems that arise, and resolve to stay on the road no matter what happens. We have all the wisdom and intelligence we need to get the lives we want, and can accomplish anything we desire.

Before we change anything, we must first decide what we want to do. It sounds easy to choose what we want, but can sometimes be quite difficult. Once we decide, we can then make a plan that helps us move closer to the goal every day. Some days will go well, and sometimes we may have setbacks. If we get sidetracked or distracted, we can find our way back to the road we want to be on, and continue forward. Every dream is possible and we can do anything by staying focused and taking another step ahead. Nothing is too difficult for us to achieve, and we can accomplish anything we desire.

Today if there’s something you want to change in your life, make a plan and begin. You can do anything. Every option is possible and nothing is out of reach. Take the first step and stay focused on the goal. You can have the life you dream about. You have everything you need already, and you will succeed.

The First Step

16 Nov

Our lives are under our control and we can make any decisions we choose. If we want to go somewhere we can make a plan and begin toward the destination. If we want a change we can determine how to make that happen and do what is needed. There isn’t anything we can’t accomplish if we have enough desire and the willingness to do what we must to succeed. But before we do anything the first step is to decide what we want. There are endless choices available and no matter what we choose there will be a way to gain it. If we like, we can ask those around us for advice but the opinions of others won’t decide our future. We are the ones in charge and are responsible for our decisions. We are always in control of what we do. If we simply go along as things happen and allow life to unfold as it will with no input from us, we may leave dreams unrealized and goals unmet. If we want to be happy and feel fulfilled we must take control of our direction forward to ensure we end up where we want to go. The world will do what it will, those around us will live their lives as they choose, and our decisions are ours to make. We deserve complete happiness but we are the only ones who can give it to us. We can make sure the path we’re on is exactly where we want to be. We have everything we need to have the lives we desire. We can decide how we want to go forward and then take the steps that will get us there.
If we’re unhappy we can spend our days complaining and wishing for something better. Neither of those activities will bring success. Complaining only reminds us of the situation making us miserable and wishes only come true in fairy tales. It’s easy to get stuck in a routine that isn’t working simply because we know it so well. But we are in control of our lives and can do anything we like. We can change anything at any time. If we aren’t happy where we are, we can move. If we don’t like the situation we’re in, we can change. Happiness is always there for us but we must seek it and do what is needed to find it.

Before we begin any journey, we must have a defined destination. It isn’t enough to say we are going to change our lives. We must clarify what that change means and where it will take us. Once we know what we truly desire we can make a plan to move forward toward it. Everything is possible and every destination is within reach. Nothing is too difficult to achieve or too far to find. We can do anything we choose. Perfect happiness is possible and with courage and determination we will reach it.

Today if you feel unsatisfied with your life and don’t like where you are, decide where you want to go and begin moving forward to get there. You deserve the very best of everything. Take control. Turn your course toward the light and reach for what you want. Begin to change what you must to find complete happiness. The whole world is yours for the taking. Happiness is there for you and you will reach it.

I Think I Can

22 Feb

In all our lives, there are times when we want to try something new, stretch, and reach for a goal that is beyond where we are. We think about it, we wonder about it, and sometimes it haunts us when we want to do it but haven’t started because we aren’t sure we can. If we want it badly enough, at some point we will have to stop ignoring it and start going for it. It might be a professional goal, or an educational goal, or a physical goal, or it might just be a change we want to make in our lives that will take effort. Whatever it is, before we start going forward and doing what is needed to achieve it, we must believe we can do it. It’s easy to talk ourselves out of trying something new. There are countless reasons not to attempt it. It might be hard. We may have to change our schedules. It may be inconvenient. It may take away from our personal time, or it may take a long time to achieve.  There are a thousand reasons that may come forward to discourage us from trying. But if we want to do anything, no matter what it is, we only need one reason to do it – because we want to.  And all we have to do to start is believe that we can.

We can do anything we want to do, but if we share our dreams or goals with others, we may not get positive support for our decision to try. Our friends and family love us and sometimes they think they know what’s best for us. They don’t mean to quash our dreams when we share them, but they may feel they are protecting us because we might fail. And they are right. We might fail. And if we don’t try failure is a certainty. But we won’t know what we can do unless we try. If we try and fail, we will have learned a lot as we’ve moved forward, and we can use that information to try again. If we believe we can succeed, and try our best, there is a high probability that we’ll conquer the challenge and gain the prize. It may not be easy but we are capable of taking on difficult tasks. It might take a lot of time, but the time will go by even if we aren’t striving for what we want. It might mean we have to change our personal schedules but we can handle that. We can manage anything we need to change to accommodate this challenge. We can go forward with confidence and we can succeed.

Our lives are ours to live any way we choose. We can take the easy road and keep things the same and predictable. There is nothing wrong with that if we don’t want to learn anything new and don’t want to grow. But learning is a gift we give to ourselves. It embellishes who we are, and deepens our understanding of life. Personal growth allows us to understand ourselves and those around us more completely. And that understanding goes a long way in helping us navigate the challenges that come to us. If we want to be the very best we can and get everything out of our experience here on earth we have to be willing to push ourselves. We have to believe we can do anything. If we do, we’ll enlarge our capacity for understanding, and stretch our wings to encompass anything we set out to do. They say faith precedes the miracle. We don’t get faith after we’ve succeeded. We must have faith first. We really can do anything we want to do. Anything is possible. We just have to believe.

Today if you’ve been thinking about trying something new and you really want to achieve it, you can. Start moving forward today. The first step is all you need to take. The next will follow and if you have sufficient faith, you will succeed. There isn’t anything you can’t do. Take the first step today. Let your confidence lead you all the way to the finish line.
