Stepping Away

3 Sep

Our lives are often busy and we have lots of details and responsibilities that need our attention. Some things are easy to check off our lists. We get to them, we get them done, and we move on. But other situations may be messy and tangled up, and require a lot of focus and time. If we’ve been dealing with something for a while, and other things have suffered because our time has been monopolized by this one issue, we may decide it’s not worth it to continue, and choose to let it go and walk away. If the issue is so complicated and keeps changing, resolution may elude us. Everyone has the same amount of time every day, and no matter what we do or how much we want it, we can never add to the total. Once it passes, it’s gone forever. We’re in control of our lives, and if something isn’t working or we get stuck going around in the same circle over and over, we can change our focus and step away. The problem will remain, but our situation is ever changing, and as we do other things we may uncover new ideas and solutions we didn’t see when we were involved initially. We can think about how we want to proceed, and when we’re ready, can revisit the issue again. Stepping away isn’t giving up. We can change direction for a time and do other things, allowing ourselves to think about all the possibilities. We are intelligent and capable, and with focus and time, nothing is beyond our understanding. We can trust ourselves to find the answers we need, and move toward success.

Our relationships are important, and when they’re strong and healthy, add great enrichment and benefit to our lives. Some people need a lot of support. They may be continually unsure or afraid of change, and constantly ask us to help them. It’s good to be helpful, but we must all face our own lives and make our own decisions. If someone close to us often insists on leaning on us for help and advice, we may be asked to give up more time than we’re comfortable with. We can’t change anyone else, but we can find ways to assist without negatively impacting our other responsibilities.

Families are important and our connections with them can be very intense. Tradition is powerful and if we’re expected to do things a certain way simply because it’s always been done that way, and we aren’t comfortable following along, we don’t have to continue. We can politely and patiently express our own viewpoint, and then do what we choose. Our lives are ours to design and we don’t need permission or agreement to do anything we desire. Every road is there for us, and all destinations are possible.

Today if you’ve been caught up in a situation that is taking all your time and energy, and you want something different, step back and decide how you want to proceed. You don’t have to stay anywhere you don’t want to be. Decide what you want the most, and begin the journey forward. Every dream is possible, and nothing can keep you from success. Be confident. You are amazing and powerful, and nothing is out of reach.

In or Out

24 Jun

We can accomplish anything as we go through our lives. As we review all the options possible and consider what we want to do, all kinds of ideas and thoughts may pop into our heads. We may feel excitement at the prospects before us or we may be intimidated by what we need to do to get to a desired goal. We are highly capable and can manage even complex and difficult tasks to move forward, but looking at them from the beginning may be daunting. Few things will come to us simply because we desire them. We will have to plan and work, and push ahead step by step until we reach success. But we won’t go anywhere if we don’t believe we can get there. We must be determined and convinced we can make it or we may end up standing still and going nowhere. It’s impossible to believe we can do something and at the same time doubt we can succeed. We have to decide which way it will go. Either we’re in or we’re out. If we want the goal, we can do what’s needed to get it. If we aren’t sure, we can take the time necessary to decide exactly what we want to do. Our lives are a reflection of every choice we make, and we can have the lives we dream about but they won’t just appear out of nowhere. It’s up to us to decide what we want and start forward toward our dreams. Every goal is possible and we have all we need to gain them. Nothing is beyond our reach and we can do anything we desire. The whole world is there for us. Every dream, every destination and every possibility await. We’re only steps away from success. We can decide what we want and then begin forward.

Mediocrity is the easiest thing in the world to accomplish. We can merely go with the flow and follow everyone else’s lead, never making a decision about what we want or choosing anything for ourselves. Coasting is fine if we want to go where the tide is taking us, but if we want our own unique, perfectly fitted life, we’ll have to step out onto our own roads and head toward our own destinations. If we only follow along, we will never have the lives we dream about. Nobody else’s decisions can ever fill our own personal desires. We deserve complete happiness and by choosing our own destinations and reaching them, we’ll have it.

Some dreams are easy to reach but others take a lot of time and energy, and if we want them, we must be willing to hold onto them even when the way forward is hard to find. Everything worth having is worth fighting for and when the road gets hard or takes longer than we planned, we can continue forward sure of success. Our lives are always in our control and we can design them any way we choose. We can find our way to every destination, and reach every goal.

Today if you’re not sure you can succeed and are beginning to doubt you have what it takes to prevail, remember everything you’ve already accomplished. You are stronger than you think you are and nothing is too far to reach. Be confident and stand strong. Everything is possible and you have everything you need to win.

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.

It Doesn’t Just Happen

11 Apr

Everyone decides what kind of life they want. We make dozens of choices every day that define who we are and help us become the people we desire. By paying attention before we decide, we can choose the direction that moves us closer to our goals and further clarifies our personal expressions. But life is busy and sometimes when there’s a lot of distraction, we might choose something in a hurry that turns out differently than we hoped. We can do anything we like but if we want to be the best we can be, and move forward in gaining the attributes we desire most, we must focus on each decision we make. Mediocrity is easy. It comes without effort or attention, but excellence requires thought and consideration. Choosing excellence won’t just happen on its own. We must decide what we want and then pursue the best course of action at each turn. When we do, we’ll move closer to our goals and become more like the person we want to be. There are unlimited things we can do every single day. We can be lazy and do nothing, take the easy road when the best road is hard, or let things simply roll out on their own. We can let life take us where it will and be persuaded by other people’s ideas and decisions. Our lives will continue whether we take ownership over them or not. But if we want to achieve excellence, if we want to get to the goals we really desire and experience personal satisfaction and greatness, we must take control over our actions. Complete and fulfilling happiness is possible. By determining what we want and then focusing on excellence as we push forward, we will achieve it. We can do anything we desire and with focus, and determination, we can have the lives we dream about.

It’s so easy to be average. We don’t have to do much, we don’t have to get involved, or exert our energies above what’s comfortable. We can coast along and pretty much get through without too much effort or distress. But a mediocre life can never bring us the intense pleasure we feel when we’ve overcome something difficult, or the incredible joy that comes from succeeding against great odds. Every single road is possible and even if the journey is hard, if we want the goal, we can achieve it. Nothing is too far to reach and we can do anything we desire.

Routines are comfortable and staying inside what we know is simple. There is nothing inspiring about monotony and we can’t learn anything new by repeating the same patterns. We have so much potential and if we step away from the familiar, even just a little, we’ll discover talents and strengths we may not know we possess. We are stronger and more capable than we may realize and nothing is beyond our abilities. Striving for excellence instead of sitting still will bring us incredible gratification and satisfaction. Our lives will be enriched and we’ll experience complete joy.

Today if you’ve been sitting back and going along with the world around you, remember how unique and incredible you are. You have gifts to offer nobody else possesses. There is greatness in you. Choose excellence and be confident. All your dreams are possible and with determination and focus you will make them yours.

The Pace

5 Sep

Everything we do has a beginning and an end.  Both are important but what goes on between them is generally where all the learning, and struggle take place.  There are often many things pressing on us and sometimes our “to do” list may be long and daunting.  As we navigate through it, we prioritize what is most important and try to do that first, and then hope to get as much of the rest done as possible.  If there are a lot of difficult items to address we may get weary.  If we’re exhausted it won’t really matter what is next to do, we may decide it isn’t worth the effort and simply stop.  We may reach a point when fatigue takes over and we’re done – whether the list has been completed or not.  Running out of steam and feeling the pull of exhaustion is a clue that perhaps we’ve planned to do more than is reasonable.  It’s good to set goals that stretch us and help us learn new things but if those goals are beyond what we can physically manage, it may be time to regroup and make a new plan.  We don’t have to move constantly and do everything at once.  We’re in control of how we spend our time and can plan our days to accomplish what is most important and allow ourselves time recharge.  We set the pace of how we’ll go forward.  By being realistic about what we can do and honoring our personal needs, we will accomplish much and feel energized.  We can take care of business and take care of ourselves at the same time.  We are strong and can manage many things well.  There isn’t anything we can’t do with careful planning and effective time management.  Everything is within reach and we can accomplish anything we set out to do.

There may be pressure from those around us to do more, do it faster, and push ourselves harder.  There are lots of different opinions about how we should live our lives and we may certainly listen to all of them.  We know what we want and how we want to accomplish it.  Everyone may choose the roads they want to travel and the speed they want to run.  We know who we are and will find success when we are true to what works for us individually.  Deciding the direction and pace we will travel will take us to the goal.  We can go anywhere and do anything, and we can do it our way.

The world defines success in many different ways.  To some it’s how fast the goal is accomplished.  To others it’s how far we push ourselves to get there.  We can decide what determines our personal success and it need not agree with anyone else’s ideas.  We’re all unique and our interpretations are valuable and important.  We may not see things the way others do, and we may not travel the same roads.  But we can still reach success and accomplish anything we desire.  There are endless roads to every destination.  We can travel our own way and find the treasure.

Today if you’re being pressured to get things done more quickly or to change direction, decide what you want the most and plan the way forward to get there.  You can do anything you desire and nothing will keep you from your goals.  Set the pace that works for you and step forward.  You know what you want and you will get there.
