Reverse Engines

6 Apr

When we’re moving forward through our lives we may be in situations that push us one direction or another blocking our way ahead, or there may be unexpected surprises that alter our course going forward.  If we are determined to reach the goal we can take all the complications and issues in stride and find a way around them.  But sometimes we may find we’re headed toward something we don’t want.  Maybe our personal circumstances have changed since we started out, or maybe the destination isn’t exactly what we thought it was at the beginning.  Whatever the reason if we determine the path we’re on isn’t right for us we can stop, reverse engines, and turn around toward something else.  If we’re traveling forward with others who still want the goal ahead we may face push back if we decide to step away.  Many people like things to stay the same and don’t want change to interfere with their plans.  If they have authority over us or we esteem them in some way, we may continue forward to keep the peace but our personal desires are important and will constantly niggle at us.  Doing things we don’t want will never make us happy.  Our personal desires are important and by choosing the roads that take us where we really want to go we will find peace and contentment.  Time spent in pursuits we don’t care about is precious time wasted.  We can choose what’s best for us and re-route our direction at any time.  Every choice we make takes us somewhere.  It’s up to us to ensure the choices we’re making today will take us where we want to be tomorrow.  If we’re on the wrong road, we can step off.  If we’re going in the wrong direction, we can turn around.  We are in control of our decisions and our happiness depends on making them well.  Everything is possible and we can go anywhere we want to go.

If we’re timid and unsure we might allow someone else to tell us where we should go and what we should do.  Those around us may have good suggestions but the only person with true inspiration and insight into our lives is us.  We know ourselves better than anyone else.  We can listen to the advice of others and then choose what we want most.  Every road is possible and nothing is out of reach.  We are strong enough and wise enough to make excellent decisions and accomplish anything we choose.

Nobody is perfect and there will be times when we make a choice that doesn’t work out.  If we choose a path that doesn’t bring us success, we can choose again.  There are many roads to every destination.  We can choose and, if need be, choose again until we reach the goal.  The possibilities are endless.  We know what we want and we can find our way to any destination we truly desire. Life is a great blessing.  We can live each day fully and do everything possible to make all our dreams come true.

Today if the road you’ve been traveling isn’t going where you really want to go, step off and redirect your course.  You know what you want.  Be fearless and choose the path that will take you to it.  Every option is available.  You are strong and powerful, and nothing is too far to reach.  Move forward toward success.  There is nothing you can’t do.

Sidelines

18 Sep

When we go to an event and aren’t performing, we sit on the sidelines.  It’s fun to be observers of things we enjoy and sitting on the sidelines watching can be gratifying and exciting.  In our lives we have countless opportunities to join into different activities and decisions.  Sometimes we may sit back and watch as things progress but other times it’s important to be involved.  If we are unsure about what will happen or feel concerned about the outcome, we may decide to sit it out, simply choosing to wait and see what happens.  For some situations that may work but if we don’t participate and our voice isn’t heard we will have no influence over what comes.  If the issue is very important to us, stepping back and letting things simply roll out as they will may not bring us the results we’re hoping for.  We know what we want and the only way to ensure the road goes to the destination we desire is to be involved.  The sidelines are great when the show doesn’t involve us but in our personal lives, allowing others to make decisions that impact us and not speaking up will never take us where we want to go.  We are wise enough to know the way forward, and strong enough to do what it takes to get there.  Our lives belong to us and allowing someone else to decide what they’ll look like will never bring us happiness.  We know what we want and what we need, and have all the power and control necessary to make it happen.

When we have someone in our lives who has a forceful and strong personality and they disagree with the decisions we make we may find ourselves acquiescing to their opinions even we want to do something else.  It may seem easier just to agree with them than try to make them understand our point of view.  The first time it may seem like no big deal, and then the second time comes, and then the third and before we know it we may find we’re in a pattern of doing everything they suggest without questioning.  Even if someone strongly disagrees with us, we can do things our way.  We don’t have to explain our point of view, we don’t need permission, and everyone doesn’t have to agree.  We know who we are and what we want, and we can forge our own path regardless of the opinions of others.

Sitting on the sidelines when there are complex issues to solve may be easier than getting involved and being part of the decisions going forward.  If we don’t voice our opinion, nobody can disagree.  If we don’t give a suggestion, nobody can ignore it.  But everyone has something to share and we all have a perspective with valuable insights.  The way we see things is unique and worthwhile, and sharing it with others will bring us great growth and satisfaction.  We are powerful and wise, and the world needs our input.  We are brave enough to join in, speak our minds, and share in the experience.

Today if you’ve been sitting on the sidelines and not joining in with the issues around you, speak up.  You insights are unique and your opinion is valuable.  Be confident.  You can change the world by sharing who you are.  You have so much to offer and we all need to hear your perspective.
