What it Takes

4 Dec

When we really want to change something about ourselves we have be willing to do what is necessary to make it a reality.  Some believe people don’t ever change and many times that’s true.  It’s certainly easier to coast through our lives and do nothing to better ourselves than it is to strive for excellence.  We can have any kind of lives we desire.  If we’re content being who we are and keeping things the same, we may.  But if we want to see how far we can go and really push ourselves toward excellence we must pay attention and purposely go forward with intent.  It takes time and vigilance to make a change that becomes part of who we are.  We can dream about being different and hope that somehow something will happen to simply create the changes we desire.  Wishing and dreaming will never bring us what we want but if we don’t put forth any effort, that’s as far as we’ll go.  There is nothing we can’t achieve if we want it badly enough.  There is no change too difficult or impossible to reach.  If we are determined to turn something in our lives, and we are intent on making the change a reality, we will succeed.  It won’t happen overnight and it may not be easy but we have everything we need to get to the goal.  True happiness comes when we achieve the life we want the most.  Deciding what that means and doing what is needed to make it happen will bring us great satisfaction and contentment.

It’s comfortable to be around situations with which we are already familiar.  We know what to expect, we may know all the players involved, and we feel confident we can manage whatever develops.  It’s nice to be comfortable and we can do the same things every day if that’s as far as we want to go.  But life is full of possibilities and no matter where we are today if we want something different we can get it.  There are endless new experiences available to us and nothing can stop us from having them.  There is so much to be found if we’re willing to step off our regular path and try something new.  We can open any doors we desire and go to new destinations.  The world is there for us and if we want to move, nothing can keep us in place.

There will always be some risk when we want to change something.  We can’t see the future and the road ahead is unknown.  Things may go exactly as we think they will or we may face completely unexpected developments.  It doesn’t matter what we face, we have everything we need to figure out any situation that comes to us.  We are smarter and braver than we think we are and nothing will stop us from succeeding.  We can embrace any change we desire and do what is needed to make it ours.  The world belongs to us and there isn’t anything we can’t do.

Today if you’ve been dreaming of something different but are unsure, be confident and take the first step toward the goal.  You have everything you need to do anything you want.  Every dream is possible and nothing will keep you from success.  You are powerful and strong, and nothing is out of reach.  Step forward and make all your dreams come true.

Check Marks

27 Jun

When we have a lot to do and many things to accomplish we sometimes make lists. As we get something done we might check it off and move onto the next item. When all our tasks have been done and we have many check marks showing our progress we may feel great accomplishment at what we’ve achieved. Making a check mark when we complete something helps us see our progress and makes it easy to see what we have yet to do. Lists are great for chores and errands but in our personal lives the things we most want to accomplish aren’t always that easy to check off. Personal growth doesn’t happen all at once and even if we’re working hard toward achieving it, it’s unlikely we’ll check it off quickly. Change isn’t usually a one step process. It may require us to modify and re-think many parts of our lives before we can move forward. We are complex beings and nothing is ever as easy as it looks at the beginning. Personal growth is a progression from one place to another. It doesn’t happen instantaneously and may take considerable time. It won’t work to make a list of personal changes we want to achieve and expect to check them off like a list of chores. We can set small goals that will lead us to the change we want and as we master one move onto the next. Each day we can move forward a little more. We can do anything we want to do and change anything in our lives we desire but we must do it our own way on our own timetable. We don’t need a check mark to show how far we’ve come. Growth is a continual process and once we’ve reached a specific goal we may continue on to the next.

Being goal oriented helps us accomplish many things. We can make a plan, decide the steps we want to take and begin forward. When we look inward the changes we desire will require personal thought and introspection. There is no schedule or time frame restriction on personal growth. We move forward as we change and modify our behaviors. It may come quickly or it may take some time. We can take things step by step and embrace change in ways that are best for us individually.

When we really want to make a personal change, we may be impatient and expect it to happen overnight. Our personalities are complex and there are many facets to the behaviors that define us. We can change anything we desire but if we must modify long standing patterns and routines it will require effort. Forging a new road forward may take time and perseverance. With patience and determination there isn’t anything we can’t do. We have everything we need to accomplish anything we desire if we resolve to make it happen and refuse to quit. We can design our lives any way we like and there isn’t anything we can’t do.

Today if you want to change something in your life but it’s harder than you thought it would be and taking longer than you imagined, keep moving forward. The goal is within reach and you will achieve it. You have everything you need to accomplish anything you desire. Keep moving forward. You will reach the destination.
