Just Waiting

1 Jun

We all have dreams about how we want our lives to go, and specific things we want to accomplish. If we want something to happen, we must define what is required to get there, and then do what is needed to make it ours. Some things are easy to accomplish but others are more elusive and if we don’t see an obvious road to get them, we may think we can’t do anything to make them ours. We may believe it’s all up to fate and simply wait to see what happens. We might even believe that if we’re good, if we follow the rules and are kind and considerate, what we desire will magically come to us. While doing things well will open lots of doors and build strong alliances and relationships, it won’t guarantee the things we desire will come to pass. We have control over all our own choices and behaviors, and can do many things to reach success. If something we desire hasn’t happened, instead of just waiting around for it and hoping somehow it will appear, we can look at it objectively and see what we can do to bring it to us. There are few things we can’t accomplish if we’re willing to do what is required to achieve them. Staying in the same place will only guarantee we’ll have the same experiences. If we want something else, we’ll have to step away from what is common and reach into the unknown. Everything is possible, and nothing is out of reach. We can decide what we want, and then go get it. We can make our dreams come true and have the lives we desire. By being confident and trusting ourselves, we can make the decisions necessary to create the situations we desire most. Everything is possible, and we have all we need to succeed.

Everywhere we go opportunities will be available, but they won’t be the same kind of opportunities. What’s available in a large metropolitan city will be different than what’s possible in a tiny town off the beaten path. Understanding where we are and what’s possible will help us determine our next steps to get to the goal. If we can’t make it happen where we are, we don’t have to just wait to see if things will change. We can move. We are never stuck in any situation any longer than we choose to be. We are in control of our lives and can do what is needed to reach any goal, and have the lives we desire most.

Timing is important in everything we do. There may be moments when we can’t move ahead and the doors we need to open are unavailable. During those times, working harder and pushing further will not move the needle. But change is constant and nothing stays the same forever. We can be patient, and stand still until our situation changes. In time, everything will resolve, and we’ll be able to move forward toward the goal. Everything is possible and with determination and focus, we can make all our dreams come true.

Today if there are things keeping you from your goal, look at everything objectively. There will be a way forward. Step onto a new road that leads to your desired destination. You are intelligent and wise, and nothing is out of reach. See everything clearly, and you will reach your goal. Nothing can keep you from success.
