The Last One

18 Dec

We live in a very competitive world. There are constant suggestions that we should do more, reach further, make more money, accomplish more success and other opinions. There will always be many ideas about how we should live our lives and spend our time. We can listen to them and spend all our time trying to be what others think we should be. Nobody knows us better than we know ourselves, or has any idea what we want to accomplish. However, the promptings to do what the world values are endless, and if we don’t accomplish whatever level of success we’re told we should reach, we may begin to feel we don’t measure up. Like being the last one chosen for a game in school, our self-esteem may get dinged, and we might begin to doubt we’ll ever succeed at anything. We know it’s impossible to be everything to everyone, but if we’re being told we should be more, do more, and have more, we might feel compelled to try. There are billions of people in the world and they all have their own ideas about success. If we try to accommodate every suggestion, we’ll only end up exhausted and frustrated. We know who we are and what we want. It doesn’t matter if it doesn’t match someone else’s view of what we should do, or if we’re the only ones going in our direction. We define what our personal success looks like, and can live our lives any way we choose. Even if everyone around us is blue, we can be green. We can express our own personal choices any way we decide, and move forward in any direction. Our lives are a reflection of every decision we make, and if we’re true to the desires we hold close, we’ll find happiness and satisfaction. The symphony of our individuality lies within us. The rest is just background music.

Life is not a race, and there is never only one winner. There are endless roads leading to endless destinations, and we can design our own journey moving forward. Our families and traditions may influence us, and the expectations of others may come into play, but in the end, we decide what we’ll do. We are always in control of our next steps. There isn’t anything we can’t accomplish and every destination is possible. We can trust ourselves to choose the best direction ahead, and reach every goal we desire.

There is comfort and ease in conformity. If everyone is doing the same things, and traveling the same road, there is a lot of support and convenience. But our lives are important and following someone else’s path will only take us where they are going. We are powerful and wise, and can decide how we’ll live our lives and what we want to accomplish. By choosing for ourselves, and confidently striking out on our own, we’ll have the lives we want the most, and make our dreams come true.

Today if you’ve been going along with what others think you should be doing, remember your life is a gift, and how you live it is up to you. You can do anything you desire. Decide what you want the most, and then step forward with confidence. Every dream is possible and you can make them yours. Success is there for you, and you will reach it.

Power Play

21 Oct

There are lots of influences in our lives. There are people who impress us with one thing or another, ideas about what we should be doing or where we should go, and our own interpretations and prejudices also play a role. We can ignore anything we like, but sometimes certain situations take hold of us and because we want them, we bend our decisions around them. We control every decision we make and can decide what we’ll take on and what we’ll obey. There are unlimited things we can do, endless places to go, and we’ll be offered many opportunities for change and growth. There will always be something new to try but nothing comes without some sort of trade off. Maybe it’s our time, our attention, our money, our freedom or a thousand other things. The price depends on the situation and what we’re trying to gain. Our lives are designed by us and reflect the goals we most want to achieve. When we know where we want to go, and then do what is required to get there, we’ll find satisfaction and happiness. We can leave it all up to chance and just let things roll out as they will. There’s no doubt we’ll end up somewhere but without our input, it’s unlikely to be somewhere we wanted to go. Taking charge of our decisions, and choosing the road ahead will ensure we reach the destinations we most desire. We can do anything, accomplish any goal, and go anywhere we want, but we must control the steps ahead if we want to reach success. Nothing is beyond our ability. We really can have the lives we dream about. There isn’t anything we can’t manage or figure out. We are wise and capable, and more powerful than we realize. Every dream is possible and with focus and determination, we’ll reach them.

Life can be complicated and sometimes we have to put something we desire on hold until our situation changes and allows us the freedom to move ahead. However, there will never be a perfect time for anything. If we wait until absolutely everything lines up perfectly, odds are we’ll never move ahead. We don’t need perfection to reach success. We can start forward as soon as we have the chance and work out any details in the way as we proceed. Each step forward will take us closer to the goals we desire, and we can be confident we will succeed.

Nobody has a life filled with only good times and lucky breaks. We will all face adversity of some kind and have to push through. When the road gets rough or there is an obstacle in our way, we have everything we need to find the answers that will open the doors ahead. We learn new skills as we overcome each complication and when we reach the goal will have more information than when we began. Life is a journey filled with all kinds of unexpected events, twists and turns. We can be sure that no matter what comes, we will prevail.

Today if you’re trying to move toward a goal but there is something blocking your progress, step back and look at everything objectively. There will always be another road that will take you forward. You are powerful and strong, and can do anything you desire. Be confident and step forward. Every goal is possible and you will win.

Troubled Waters

7 Oct

There are endless things that can go wrong every moment of every day. Complications may come, we might take a wrong turn, someone might do something that blocks us, the train might be late and we miss our appointment, or dozens of other scenarios. Some days it can seem like we’re in the middle of the Bermuda Triangle and nothing works. There is always trouble somewhere and eventually it will visit us. We may struggle to figure out what to do next and how to stay afloat as the waves crash overhead and we keep going under. Troubled waters will come but nothing stays the same forever. Life is constantly changing and as we tumble and twist trying to find our way, the answers will be there for us. We will untangle any mess or confusion, and the road ahead will open. We are strong and capable, and there isn’t anything we can’t comprehend and manage well. If we lose our footing, we’ll find it again. If we fall, we’ll climb back up. We are invincible and unbeatable. Nothing can hold us down indefinitely. Trials will come, mistakes will happen, and for a moment we may be caught up in confusion and disarray, but that is only temporary. We know what needs to be done, and where we want to go. Even in the midst of trouble, we can keep our focus. Our lives are a long journey, filled with experiences both good and bad. Learning as we go will give us the tools we need to move forward with confidence and reach any destinations we desire. We are powerful and wise, and nothing can keep us from our goals. Troubled waters are only a passage to the roads we most want to travel. Every dream is there for us. We will find them, and make them ours.

Nobody wants to suffer and we might wish for a life full of ease and happiness, where nothing ever goes wrong and we are always content and satisfied. That’s nice to think about but unfortunately, that isn’t how life works. There is a constant tug and pull as we push forward toward our goals. Sometimes things will go well, other times there will be complications and difficulty. There are always a lot of balls in the air, and some will inevitably fall, sometimes right on top of us. It doesn’t matter if things get complex and the road gets rough. We are strong and capable and can find our way through anything that lies ahead. Nothing can keep us from success and we will prevail.

When trouble arises, if we allow it to stop us from stepping forward, we will never achieve the goals we desire. It’s impossible to stand still and move ahead at the same time. We have everything we need to overcome any distress or adversity. If the road ahead is blocked and we cannot move forward, we can find another road. There are endless options possible and we can find our way to any goal we desire. Nothing is out of reach, and we can have the lives we want most.

Today if you’re in the midst of trouble and there are complications keeping you from advancing, step back and look at all the possibilities before you. There are endless roads to every destination and you will find the way forward. Nothing can keep you from success. You are wise and strong, and will find your way. Success is there for you, and you will win.

Ready to Go

26 Aug

When there’s something we want to accomplish and it’s important to us, we can take time to look at all our options and make a plan for achieving it. We can do anything we want but before we begin any journey, it’s important to understand what will be required of us, what obstacles we may be able to see that could stop us, and come up with ideas for getting through difficult passages. Is the road ahead clear? Are there people making decisions that will impact our progress? Does our current situation allow for us to move forward as planned? We can only control what we do and most of what happens is beyond our reach. If we’re determined to accomplish the goal, nothing will keep us from it, but if complications arise, we may have to change our direction or even backtrack and start again. Sometimes things happen that prevent us from advancing and if we get stuck, we may have to set the goal aside for a time until our situation changes and movement becomes possible. It’s hard to wait when we want to move, but life is filled with all kinds of twists and turns. People may make decisions that prevent us from continuing, something we counted on may no longer be available, and countless other issues may arise. If we have to stop and wait, it’s not giving up. We never have to sacrifice any goal we desire. Setting something aside isn’t abandoning it altogether. Being ready to go is just the first step in a journey of many, many steps. We can prepare the way forward and move ahead as our situation allows. Every goal is possible and with patience and determination, nothing is beyond our grasp. We can make all our dreams a reality and have the lives we desire most.

Some people are strong and confident, managing trouble as it comes with patience and grace. Others may struggle and suffer with doubt and indecision when the road turns and they must find another way. There will rarely be a time when everything we plan goes exactly the way we predict and we reach the goal without any hiccups. Most of the time there will be unexpected developments that push us off track and muddy the waters ahead. We are strong and capable, and if the road turns, we have everything we need to find the way forward. We know what we want and if we focus on the goal, nothing can keep us from it.

Sometimes the destinations we seek take far longer to reach and are far more difficult than we imagined. If the goal is no longer important, we can let it go and move on to something else. But if we still want to continue, we can look at all the possibilities before us and revise our plan to make it more workable. Nothing is too far away or too difficult for us to reach. We need only decide what we want, and take another step forward.

Today if you’re ready to begin on a new journey, look ahead and make the best plan possible. You are powerful and wise, and can do anything you want. Nothing is too hard for you to accomplish. Decide what you want, and then begin. The whole world is there for you, and nothing is out of reach. You can have the life you dream of and find complete happiness. Make your plan and begin. Success is just ahead.

Changing Direction

11 Mar

We make millions of decisions as we go through our lives. The choices are unlimited and every day we decide what step we’ll take and choose every turn. Each decision colors our lives and tells the world around us who we are and what we stand for. We can certainly choose anything we like at any time but we’re not free to decide what happens after that. The first step is ours but the results of each decision are beyond our control. Sometimes we may have a good idea of what will happen next and things work out the way we want them to. But other times we may be shooting in the dark as we make choices unsure of what will result. Life is filled with all kinds of variables, and everyone around us is making decisions that may impact our way forward. It’s impossible to know everything and even when we try to choose the right road ahead, there may be times we end up going in the wrong direction and have to start again. The best we can do is take the time necessary to see and evaluate all the options before us, and then decide. If the road turns and we find we’re not headed where we want to go, we can look again, and re-chart our course. Every decision will take us somewhere. If it’s not where we want to go, we can start again. We can change direction at any time and choose how we’ll continue. It doesn’t matter how may restarts or revisions we must make. There are unlimited roads ahead and if one doesn’t work, we can choose another. Success is always possible and with determination and wisdom, we’ll reach it.

There’s always a lot going on around us and when we’re focused on a goal, we may set our sights only on the steps in front of us. We may block out everyone else and close ourselves off in an effort to move forward undeterred. It’s good to be focused, but if we only see the next step forward and don’t pay attention to anything else, we may miss important cues about the road ahead. Those around us may have valuable information that will help us and being open to them can prevent pitfalls we may not see. Every destination is possible and by clearly watching where we’re headed and being aware of everything going on, we’ll get there as quickly and effectively as possible.

Everyone has ideas and opinions about how things should go and we may get all kinds of advice and guidance along the way. We can listen to everything being offered and use whatever will help us move forward. We aren’t compelled to do anything differently or conform to anyone else’s ideas about how we should progress. The journey is ours to design and each decision moves us forward toward the goal. We can do anything and go anywhere. The possibilities are endless and we can choose the future we desire.

Today if you need to adjust your course to get to the goal you’re seeking, choose the best way forward and step ahead. Make a turn, and continue forward. You are amazing and capable. The goal is there for you and you will reach success. Nothing is out of reach and all your dreams can come true.
