The Changeup

10 May

Life is long and what we do and who we become is up to us. We can spend our time going through the motions, taking things as they come and just dealing with what life brings, or we can take control of our lives and do things on purpose to make changes we desire. Change is always possible but it isn’t always easy and can be difficult. If we’ve been in the same job for a long time and it’s not bringing us the rewards we desire or taking us where we most want to go, we can move on to something else. If we’re in a relationship that isn’t fulfilling and brings us stress and discomfort, we can step away and go in another direction. We certainly understand these concepts but actually taking the leap and doing what we must to change our situation takes courage and determination. It’s always easy to keep things the same and deal with the status quo, and there is no way to see the future or predict how our new plans will work out. Every road is possible and nothing is out of reach, and if we want something new, we must be willing to step into the unknown and outside of our comfort zones to get it. We are strong and capable, and there isn’t anything we can’t accomplish when we’re ready to move. By trusting ourselves, and believing we will succeed, we can step forward and create the lives we desire most. We deserve complete happiness. We never have to settle, and with focus and clarity, can do anything.

Customs and traditions can be very powerful, and family expectations may be strong. There may be great pressure to conform to what has been done in the past and follow someone else’s example. Our close relationships are important but we don’t need to give up what we really want to honor them. We can be respectful and polite, and still choose the paths we desire most. Our lives belong to us and we can decide how we will live them and what we’ll do. We can take a different route and make choices that will take us where we most want to go, and achieve our own personal goals.

There is no such thing as destiny and nobody has the power to tell us how to live our lives. We can do what we like and have unlimited chances to achieve whatever we desire. If our first plan doesn’t work out, it’s not a sign that we aren’t supposed to succeed. Wrong turns teach us what doesn’t work and help us adjust our course until we reach success. Every possibility is there for us and every destination awaits. We need only decide what we want, and then step forward, confident we will succeed.

Today if you want something different but have been hesitant to move, trust yourself. You know what you want, and have what you need to get it. Turn your course and take the first step toward the goal. Every dream is there for you and nothing is too hard or too complex for you to figure out. Be confident and clear. There is greatness inside you and you are wiser and more powerful than you imagine. Begin the journey now. Nothing can keep you from success and you will win.

Broken Apart

19 Apr

Everyone wants an easy life filled with fun, and smooth sailing. We all love the good times when everything goes well and we have no worries or concerns. When nothing is too hard or overwhelming and the sun is shining on us, we feel invigorated and happy. But life isn’t constant and nothing stays the same forever. There are always things going on we can’t see or anticipate, and trouble eventually comes to us all. There may be something that is so painful and extreme, what we have to face may make us feel broken inside and unable to stand. There’s so much heartache and distress, we may think we can’t survive. Our strength may be pushed to the limit, our patience may fade, and we may be exhausted trying to get through. If there is no end in sight, and the road forward seems endless, we may be sure of defeat and think of simply surrendering and giving up. A broken bone cannot tolerate any weight. It will hang useless and dangling. But if we correct its alignment and build a cast around it for support, in time it will heal, and thereafter be even stronger than it was before the break. We are the same way. Hard times will come and we will surely be tested, sometimes beyond what we believe we can tolerate. But with faith and determination, we can hold things steady, learning as we go and gaining the tools we need to correct the situation and continue forward. All the lessons we learn as we heal will go forward with us, making us stronger and wiser. Being broken apart is difficult and painful, but we have everything we need to find every answer and prevail. Nothing can hold us in place forever. We are strong and powerful, and every success is there for us.

Some problems take a long time to resolve. They may take years to process, and we feel the weight of them at every moment. We will find all the answers we need, but they won’t all come right away. We can take things one step at a time, unraveling one piece, and then move on to the next. It’s like eating an elephant – it can’t be done all at once. It’s hard to be patient when there are lots of complications and details that make our journey slow and arduous, but every goal is possible. By keeping our eyes focused on the road ahead, with patience and clarity, we will prevail.

If there’s something about ourselves we’ve tried over and over to change – we want to lose weight, or be more patient, or let go of a bad habit – and still we hold onto it, we may begin to believe we cannot succeed. We may think there’s something inside us that’s broken we can’t fix. That will never be true. We’re in control of our lives, and when we’re ready, nothing can keep us from success. Once we decide what we want the most, we can step forward with confidence and do what is necessary to make it ours.

Today if you feel broken apart because of something you’re facing or a situation you don’t think you can manage, trust yourself. You are far stronger and more powerful than you think you are. There isn’t anything you can’t handle. Be confident and sure of success. There is greatness in you and nothing can keep you from anything you desire. Everything is possible and all your dreams are waiting. Step forward and claim them.

Purpose

7 Sep

There are endless things we can do in life, unlimited places to visit, and innumerable experiences to be had. Every destination awaits, but if we want to accomplish something, we must be willing to do what is needed to make it ours and purposely step forward determined to obtain it. The world is huge and nothing is too difficult if we want it badly enough. Our lives are ours to design, and whatever we want is possible, but our dreams won’t just appear because we want them, or feel we deserve them. Coasting along, doing what everyone else thinks we should do, or riding in the back seat will never take us where we really want to go. Just taking things as they come and following our noses around from one place to the next will not get us what we want the most. Nobody knows us better than we know ourselves, and when we’re ready, we can reach any goal we desire. Our futures are ours to choose. Every road is there for us and nothing is out of reach. By believing in our ability to succeed, and then stepping forward with confidence, we can find success. There is great satisfaction and happiness in living our lives exactly as we desire. We are unique and powerful, and with determination and focus, can do anything. The lives we want the most are possible, and we can make choices that take us closer to them. Success is there for us, and we will prevail.

Some roads are hard and difficult. It may take a long journey to reach a goal we desire. If there have been many complications, twists and turns, and moving ahead has been arduous, we may think we can’t do it. We may believe it’s just too hard and there is no way we’ll ever succeed. Nobody wants to suffer, and when trials come we can always throw our hands up and surrender. We can give up and walk away, but we cannot succeed by quitting. If we’re determined, nothing is powerful enough to hold us down indefinitely. Every goal is reachable even when it’s dark and hard to see. We can endure what we must and reach success.

Running 100 miles seems impossible. Looking at the entire journey from the beginning may overwhelm us, and we may shrink back and hesitate to begin. We can’t imagine how we’ll ever run the entire distance, but we can run one mile today. Tomorrow we can run another, and before we realize it, we will have completed the journey. We don’t have to do everything all at once. We can take our time, take one step and then the next, and with persistence and perseverance, we will succeed.

Today decide what you want the most, and take the first step forward. Every goal is possible and nothing is too difficult for you to accomplish. Stay focused and each day move closer to the goal. You are stronger and more powerful than you realize, and can accomplish anything you desire. Keep your eyes focused on the road ahead and move with purpose. Every dream is waiting, and you will make them yours.

The Long Game

20 Aug

Life is full of details, complications, and unexpected situations. We never know what will happen next. Sometimes things go well and we move along with little discomfort. Other times we run up against a wall or get stuck in a mire of trouble and grief. Everyone has their own plans for moving forward, but we might make a wrong turn that takes us far away from where we want to go. Or something devastating may happen that knocks the wind out of us and we’re sure we’ll never be right again. Life is unpredictable and it’s certain we’ll all face very difficult, even crushing moments. It may feel like the end of the world at first, but we can step back and take a long view of things. Looking at eternity – will this matter? Too big? Okay, think about five years from now. Will what’s happening now affect our lives five years from now? It’s rare to face anything with that kind of lasting impact. Yes, it could happen, but generally what we’re going through is transient and passing. Even when we’re suffering, if we look at the long game, we can be confident that we’ll not only survive, but come out stronger and more confident because of the experience. Everyone gets some paved, easy roads, but with those we’ll also face some hard and rocky hills we must climb. Trouble will come, we will be tried and tested, but nothing can keep us from success. We are stronger and more powerful than we think we are, and will prevail. Every goal, every destination, every dream is possible. We can stay the course no matter what happens, and make them ours.

We all have things we think we could never survive. The death of a loved one, a disaster, the loss of a child, and a thousand other things. There is no way to know what will come, but one thing is certain. There is no problem so difficult or extreme that we cannot find a way through. The answers will always be there for us. We will find the key to every door we need to open, and with patience and determination, will prevail. Life is uncertain, but we are highly capable. Nothing can hold us down forever, and no matter what we’re facing, we will succeed.

We might face a time when we’re facing not one very difficult challenge, but several at the same time. It’s like someone pulled the lid off the trouble box and poured it all over our lives. Everywhere we turn we may run into difficulty and challenge. When we’re overcome and stressed, it can be hard to see the light ahead or believe we’ll prevail. But change is constant, and no matter what we’re experiencing now, it’s not permanent. We can hold on, put our shoulder into the wind, and keep walking forward. Nothing can stay the same forever and we will get through.

Today if you are overcome with trouble and it seems there is no way out, trust yourself. Look at everything objectively and the answers will appear. You are intelligent and powerful, and nothing is strong enough to hold you down indefinitely. Step forward and keep your eyes focused on the road ahead. Every success is waiting and you will reach them all.

The Last Mile

15 Jul

Working hard to complete a difficult goal can be exhausting. Some things take a lot to accomplish, and we can’t know when we start how convoluted or complex they may become as we progress. If it’s taken a long time to move ahead, and each step has been fraught with complications and problems, it may seem we’ll never prevail. When we’ve been working hard to reach a specific destination, and we’re tired, there may be times we feel like it’s just too much. We’re worn out, and the end of the journey still seems far away. Unfortunately, we can’t see the end of the road at the beginning, and even though we’re progressing and moving forward, solving issues as they arise, it might seem the struggle is endless. It’s impossible to see into the future, and although we may not be able to see it, we may be on the very last mile of the road. The end may be only steps away. Success depends not only on enduring the road moving ahead, but actually completing the journey and arriving at the destination. If we quit before we get there, we will carry everything we learned forward with us, but we will never win the fight. We are always in control of our lives and can do anything we like. We can turn our course at any time, and let go of any goal we desire. If the road is too long and cumbersome, and we don’t want to continue, we can change direction and move on to something new. But if we really want to reach success, no matter how hard it’s been, we will always have enough strength and wisdom within us to continue forward. Today may look bleak, filled with trials and endless worry, but tomorrow is coming, and success is just ahead. We are more powerful than we know, and nothing can keep us from anything we desire. By trusting ourselves, and taking one more step forward, we will prevail, and claim the prize.

Building a house takes a lot of time, planning, and organization. We can get all the materials we’ll need assembled together, but just having them loaded up into a pile will not create the house. We must begin assembling each piece in order, starting with the foundation and working up from there. The same is true when we’re working hard to reach a goal. We must plan as we move forward, untangling each complication and solving each problem along the way. Step by step, with determination and persistence, we will be successful in pushing ahead. We are capable of achieving greatness, and nothing can keep us from our goal.

When we’re working hard, fatigue may become an issue. It’s impossible to be at our best if we’re tired and unfocused. Stepping back and taking time away to recharge will help us find clarity and open new ideas that will pave the road ahead. We are intelligent and can do anything we desire. We have all the stamina and wisdom we need to keep moving forward, and reach success.

Today if you’ve been on a long road, and are beginning to feel you will never prevail, step back and decide how you want to proceed. Every answer is already there for you. You are capable of greatness. Stand strong and step forward. Success is just ahead, and nothing can keep you from it.
