Mirror Mirror

30 Jan

The world is full of illusions.  Things may look one way when in fact they may be something entirely different.  Often this is done purposefully to entice us to do something, buy something or go somewhere.  It’s like a big sales convention.  Everywhere we turn we see pictures that have been altered to look better than they are, and we are bombarded with suggestions and promptings to do things others are promoting.  It’s sometimes difficult to discern actual truth when there is so much deception all around.  In our personal lives if we feel we should be one way or another in order to please others or move forward, we may begin to pretend we actually possess attributes we don’t have.  We may tell others we can do things we don’t know how to do, recreate our personal history to reflect what someone else wants to hear, or in other ways fake our way through.  All of that might work for a while, but truth is powerful and will always rise.  When we look in the mirror we see ourselves as we are.  Accepting ourselves exactly as we are now will help us clearly decide how we want to move forward.  We don’t have to pretend to be anything.  We don’t have to look like or act like anyone else to get ahead.  We can be genuine and true to the attributes we possess.  If we want to change, we can do what is needed to get there and move forward with confidence.  Illusions may be pretty, and they may captivate us, but they aren’t real.  Deciding to be honest about ourselves and truthful in all our interactions will give us the confidence and power we need to do anything we desire.

If we’re unhappy, we can bemoan our situation and spend all our time dreaming of how things could be.  Wishing and hoping for change is a waste of time, and sitting around waiting for something to happen that will turn our course toward the goals we want is foolish.  If we want the lives we’re dreaming of we must define what is needed to make it happen and then actively pursue it.  Our lives are our responsibility.  We’re always in control of our decisions and what we do going forward.  Every dream is possible and if we’re determined and focused, we can achieve the lives we want the most.

Nobody is perfect and there may be times when we feel disappointed in something we’ve done in the past.  Carrying around disappointments that are behind us can hold us back and keep us from happiness.  We can learn everything possible from the experience and take the lessons forward to help us make better choices.  Life is a continual process of learning.  We can make excellent choices going forward and find the success we seek.

Today if you’ve been pretending to be something you aren’t in an effort to move ahead, remember you are worthwhile and valuable just as you are.  Trust yourself and be confident.  We need your influence and there is nobody else like you.  You are amazing and have gifts nobody else can offer.  Share them with us and the whole world will benefit.  There is great success ahead and you will reach it.

Around and Around

14 Nov

As we set goals and decide how we want to move forward, it’s wise to objectively look at what must be accomplished in order to succeed. There may be many things we need to do to move us ahead. Perhaps we must go somewhere new, or meet with others who will give us necessary information, or we may need to change something within ourselves in order to progress. Doing external things may take time but they are generally easier than changing something in our personal behaviors and choices. Change is rarely easy and often takes serious thought and commitment to achieve. If we aren’t sure we can do what is needed, we may decide to simply work with what we have instead. That might be enough for a time but if we really must change something in order to succeed it will only delay our progress. We can go around and around the issue indefinitely but if the only way forward requires change, until we do what is needed to make that happen, we may stand still. Even if we’re clear on where we want to go, if we haven’t done what is required to reach the destination we may find ourselves running in place. There isn’t any goal we can’t reach and we can do anything we desire. We have all the wisdom and courage needed to ensure our success. The world is open to us and we can do what is required to move forward and overcome any obstacle in our path.

It’s good to be creative. We can look at situations in different ways and use alternative methods to solve problems. Often there are many ways to resolve issues and we can discover and create new solutions in each case. However, if there is only one way to move forward and it requires a change within ourselves we may need to consider our options. We can look at what is required and then decide if the goal is worth the effort. Personal change takes time and concentration. If the destination is important to us we can do whatever is needed to reach it. Nothing will stop us if we are determined to succeed.

We can never fool ourselves into success. Pretending will never get us to the goal. If we don’t want to do what we must to succeed, we can make excuses for the lack of progress and try to explain why things haven’t worked out. But all the excuses in the world will never be enough to compensate for failure to move forward. If we don’t want the goal we can let it go, but if it’s valuable to us we must do what is needed to achieve it. We can do anything we desire and success is always there for us. We can take charge of any situation, accomplish what must be done, and find success. Once we decide we will win nothing will stop us.

Today if you’ve been going around and around trying to make things work without doing what is needed to move forward, decide what you really want. You have all the wisdom and determination you need to do anything. Choose the way forward and do what is needed to succeed. Everything is available to you and nothing is out of reach. Be confident. The world is yours to conquer and you will win.
