Taking It Easy

24 Jul

Our lives are filled with opportunity and endless chances to do anything we want. The world is a big place, and there are unlimited things we can do, and countless places to go. We can plan our lives in ways that enable us to accomplish all our dreams, and do everything we desire. Every dream is possible but it takes courage to step away from what we know and try something new. If we want to, we can take it easy, and just continue in our routine, thinking about what we’d like to do, but never taking the chance to make it happen. Routines are safe. We can do the same things every day and pretty much know what to expect and how things will go. Mastering what is common comes easily, and takes little effort. We can go through our lives repeating the same patterns every day, and although we may be successful in accomplishing some things, it’s unlikely we’ll achieve what we dream about. Our lives are important and we can design them any way we like. We can live in predictable, mediocre ways and become complacent, or we can decide what we want the most, and then do what is needed to make it ours. They say when we die, we don’t regret the things we’ve done, but the things we never tried. We are strong, intelligent, and capable, and can achieve anything we desire. By trusting ourselves and stepping forward with confidence, determined to succeed, we can do anything. Nothing is too far or too difficult for us to manage. Every dream is possible, and we can make them ours. The whole world is there, waiting for us. We need only decide what we want, and then go get it.

It’s easy to feel comfortable when we know where we are, and the road ahead is familiar. We can relax and just take things as they come. Our lives belong to us, but if we don’t control them, others will. We can follow along, do as requested, agree with everyone else’s ideas, and just coast through. If we do, we’ll probably be just fine, but we will never reach our personal goals. It’s impossible to direct our own lives if we’re following someone else. We are the only ones who know what our dreams are and where we want to go. We can take control, and move toward every destination we desire, and succeed. Nothing is off limits, and we can have the lives we want the most.

If we’re trying to accomplish a difficult goal, we may get support from those around us, or they may tell us it’s too hard and we should quit. Many people prefer conformity. They like it when everyone is doing the same things and may be uncomfortable when others try to move forward. They are certainly entitled to their opinions, but they have no influence over our choices. We don’t need agreement to do anything we desire. Our lives are ours, and every goal is possible. We can make our dreams come true, and reach every destination.

Today if you’ve been taking it easy and just going with the flow, think about what you really want. Decide where you want to go, and begin forward. You already have everything you need to do anything you want. Create the life you desire most, and you’ll find great satisfaction and happiness. Every dream is possible, and you will make them yours.

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.

Setbacks

16 May

It would be great if everything we chose went well and the desired outcomes always came to us. But life is filled with unknowns and surprises. Others may make unexpected decisions that impact us or there may be unseen forces affecting our plans and suddenly the road ahead is blocked and we have to turn around. Setbacks come and when they do we have to start again and find another way. We aren’t defined by them and we don’t need to be stopped by them. They don’t prevent us from accomplishing our end goal but they may prevent us from continuing forward on the road we’re on. We only fail if we stop moving forward and we never need to stop if we want to achieve the goal. If we suffer a setback, we can start again. If we have another one, we can start again once more. Some goals take time and we may need to work around several obstacles to get there but we can take our time and continually readjust until we find the way. There is rarely a straight line to success. Often, we move forward by turning left here, right there, backing up a bit and starting again. We know what we want to do and we have all the wisdom and patience we need to accomplish anything we choose. If we get stalled, we can start again and succeed. There is nothing too complex or difficult for us to achieve.

When salmon are spawning, they must swim upriver against the flow of water. It’s hard work, there are other fish in the way and if the river is powerful it takes enormous strength to swim against it. But the goal is life and the motivation is powerful enough to push them forward despite how difficult it becomes. We aren’t salmon but there may be times when what we want to do goes against the easy flow forward. We may have to press against the tide and we may suffer setbacks. If we quit the first time things go wrong we have no hope of success. We can keep our eyes focused on the goal and when things get in the way we can find a way around them and keep moving forward.

If others don’t agree with the road we’ve chosen they may try to convince us to revise our plans. They may believe they know what we need better than we do and pressure us to give up the journey. Nobody will ever know us better than we know ourselves. We know what we want to accomplish and we know what we need. Even if everything stands in front of us our motivation is sufficient to take us through. Our lives are ours to define and we deserve every success. If we are focused and determined, setbacks will not stop us, opinions will not deter us and we will win.

Today if you’re moving toward a dream you want to accomplish and there is something in your way, step around it and re-chart the way forward. You can go anywhere you want to go and do anything you want to do. There is no setback strong enough to stop you. Keep your eyes on the goal and take another step. Success is right there for you. One more step and you’ll reach it.
