Stronger

1 Dec

When we’re going through difficult challenges and trying to find our way through, we try hard to work things out. It’s not easy to face severe situations and if the answers don’t come quickly and the road forward is long and hard, we may tire of the struggle and feel like giving up. We may feel we need to be stronger than we are, but gaining personal strength isn’t very different from gaining physical strength. If we want to be physically strong we must push ourselves to do more. Giving more when our energy is fading isn’t easy but our greatest growth comes when we challenge ourselves to go further. When we’re tired and have to dig deep to continue, we are rewarded with greater physical endurance and ability. The same is true in our personal lives. When we feel we can’t do any more but are determined to push forward one more time, we become stronger and oftentimes wiser. There is great blessing in adversity. Nobody wants to suffer but bad times will inevitably come to us all. How we manage them and endure will determine how much growth we realize. The more we overcome, the more we learn. Life can be complicated and unpredictable, and nobody knows what tomorrow will bring. No matter what comes we have everything we need to not only endure, but succeed. We can find strength by doing whatever is needed to solve any problem we face. Determining to push forward until we complete the journey will bring satisfaction. We are competent and capable, and there isn’t anything we can’t do. We can be confident even when everything looks bleak, that we will win.

We may choose to give up and run every time there is trouble on the horizon. We can try to avoid conflict whenever possible and refuse to engage when someone disagrees. But hiding from problems will never give us the skills we need to solve them. We don’t live in Nirvana and we will have conflict from time to time. We are smart enough to understand how to move through it when we need to, and find the answers necessary to manage it effectively.

Life is full of challenges and we interact with many kinds of people on a regular basis. No two people are exactly alike and differences will naturally occur. We can take each situation independently, look at it objectively, and find the right way forward to bring harmony. Learning to compromise, learning to listen, and determining to find common ground will help us. Each situation will teach us something new and we carry that information forward to help us in the future. There is a lot we can learn when things go wrong. If we stay the course and learn the lessons well we will become stronger and more effective. There is much to be gained through difficult times. With patience and grace, we will gain everything we need to find success and happiness.

Today if you’re struggling with a problem and feel exhausted trying to find the way through, dig deep and try one more time. All the answers are there for you. Open another door, listen more carefully, and let the resolution come. You are amazing and capable, and this trial will bring you greater strength and wisdom. Be confident. You will succeed.

No Limit

17 Jan

As we go through our lives, we travel many different roads and go to many places. Sometimes our destinations are what we’re seeking, sometimes they are surprises, and sometimes we end up somewhere we never thought we’d go. There are a lot of factors influencing our direction and even when we have a specific destination in mind, we may get diverted along the way. We may alter our direction when our plans change and modify where we’re headed. The future lies before us and no matter where we’ve been in the past, no matter what decisions are behind us, we can make the way forward any way we choose. We may continue on the same roads we’ve traveled that are familiar and comfortable or we can make a wide turn and travel through unknown paths to reach someplace new. What we’ve done in the past does not determine what we’ll do in the future, and where we’ve been doesn’t decide where we’re headed. We can go anywhere and do anything even if we’ve never done it before. Our lives belong to us and we may turn our course at any time. We know what we really want and we know how to achieve it. We can do anything, go anywhere and accomplish any goal we choose. Turning our path takes confidence and determination, and we have plenty of both to find success.

Some people prefer to keep their lives as predictable as possible. They feel comfortable with what’s familiar and don’t like to extend beyond their comfort zones. A simple existence that is routine and expected may be our goal but life sometimes has other ideas. There are times when the unexpected arises and even if we try hard to keep things the same, they change. No matter how much we prefer routine, our lives may take us to places we don’t anticipate. We are capable of managing anything that comes to us and even if it’s uncomfortable at first, will find our way through. We have an extraordinary ability to adapt and adjust to anything that comes, and we can modify our plans going forward and find happiness and comfort.

Expectations of others sometimes enter into our plans as we move forward. Perhaps our friends and families suggest we do a thousand things we haven’t considered. There may be opinions about where we should go and we can certainly hear them all and there is no limit to what we can choose going forward. We don’t have do anything the way we’ve done it before, we don’t have to do what’s expected and we don’t have to follow any norms. We can choose any path we like and go anywhere we want to go. Our lives are our adventures to design. They are unique to us and we can reach for the stars and make all our dreams come true.

Today if you want to expand your horizons to encompass new destinations, do what is needed to chart your course. There isn’t anything you can’t do and nowhere too far to reach. You have everything you need to do anything. Make your life exactly the way you want it. It’s yours to design. Reach as far as you like. You have everything you need to succeed.
