Zero Resistance

6 Apr

Everyone is different and we all have ideas about how things should go and what we should do. We decide what goals we want, where we’ll go and choose every aspect of our own lives. We’re entitled to our own choices and can do anything we like. Some people think they have all the answers and know more than the rest of us. They may think their ideas are better than anyone else’s and may try to make us comply with their desires. If they will not tolerate any resistance, we may struggle when we must deal with them. Unless they have authority over us, we need never do anything we don’t want to do. It doesn’t matter if they insist, if they scream and holler or try to muscle us into compliance. We are in control of our lives and may live them according to our own desires – not somebody else’s. We can listen to any advice or direction we’re given, and then decide what we’ll do. If we’re intimidated or threatened by someone, we might go along with what they want, but control over our lives is ours alone. We need never give it up to go along. We don’t need anyone’s permission or agreement to do anything we like. Every destination and goal are possible, and if we keep our eyes looking forward, nothing can keep us from success.

It’s always easier if everyone is doing the same things. If we’re all going in the same direction there are often fewer complications and tangles along the way. Being the same as everyone else might be easier, but we’re all unique and have our own perspectives. Our ideas are valuable and important, and we have the courage and wisdom we need to express them clearly and effectively. We can change direction at any time and take a new road. We are intelligent and strong, and will find the way forward.

If there is something important we want to accomplish, and we feel strongly that we know the best way to get it done, we might try to make others involved do things our way. We may insist on compliance, sure that we have the only answer. No matter how confident we are, there are few times in life when only one way will work. Instead of forcing our views on others, we can be confident enough to listen to different ideas and allow everyone to participate in the decision. There are always many roads to every destination, and by keeping our minds open we will find the best way ahead.

Today if you’re being pushed to comply with something you don’t agree with, remember your decisions are yours to make. Listen to every perspective and choose the best road ahead. You never need to go along with anything you don’t want. You are smart and have everything you need to do anything you desire. Nothing is powerful enough to control you. Stand strong and be confident. The whole world is there for you and everything is possible.

Labels and Names

10 Feb

There are billions of people on the earth. They all look different, have different customs, their lives are varied and there are endless interpretations of every aspect of life. We’re all unique and are entitled to our own opinions and ideas. We can do anything we like, and if we meet someone who is very different than we are, and don’t understand them, we may assign a label to them, or lump them into a group. We may call them any of a thousand different things we think describes them according to our own ideas and impressions. Labeling people generally does nothing good. Putting people in boxes restricts them and may change how we think of them and how they respond to us. Being called a name may be flattering or it can be uncomplimentary and degrading. We are all people sharing the planet. We don’t need everyone to think like us, or look like us or follow the same beliefs and standards we set for ourselves. By honoring other viewpoints and listening to different perceptions, we’ll be enriched and learn more about ourselves and those around us. Nobody only wears one color all the time, or eats the same foods every day. Differences are important and bring great depth and variety to our lives. By understanding those around us and sharing our lives with them, we will find great satisfaction and wisdom moving forward.

When we’re in a group, it’s a lot easier if everyone is on the same page. If we’re all focused on accomplishing the same goals and agree on how that should be done, things may go more smoothly than if everyone wants to do things their own way. Different ideas and ways of doing things can either bring complications or embellishment to group dynamics, depending on how we view them. If we’re open to hearing various ways of doing things, and trying another way forward, new ideas will form that may completely change our perspective.

Right is right and wrong is wrong – we can all agree on that. But one person’s idea of what is right may not agree with someone else’s. Being different doesn’t mean being wrong. If nobody is getting hurt, and it’s just a matter of interpretation, all ideas are worthwhile. If we’ve always done things a certain way it can be hard to adjust if someone comes along and turns everything upside down. By being flexible and willing to bend in a new direction, we will learn new ideas and find great success.

Today if you have labeled someone because of their personal characteristics, think again. Remember the great blessing and enrichment differences can bring. Listen to alternative viewpoints, and try to understand the situation from another perspective. You are very intelligent and wise. Be open to contrasting ideas and your life will be enriched. Everyone is valuable and there is great success ahead for us all.

Copy Cat

19 Oct

There are endless opinions and ideas floating around us all the time. The world is filled with differing viewpoints and there are limitless choices we can make. Although we can design our lives any way we like, we may face a time when there is pressure to conform. If the voices around us are powerful and loud, even if we disagree, we may decide to go along. Going along to get along is easier than standing our ground, and if we’re unsure or timid, we may buckle. Conforming may make the road ahead a little easier to navigate, but choosing someone else’s road will only take us where they’re going, and will never lead us to our own destinations. Copying someone else’s choices or behaviors will not enable us to live a clear, authentic life. We are unique. There isn’t anyone else like us in the whole universe and nobody can offer the gifts we have to share. Although it may be easier to go along to get along, nothing will bring us more satisfaction and happiness than choosing our own way. We all have so much to offer, and can be confident that our voices are important. We can be polite and patient, listen to every suggestion offered, and then choose our own path. We know what we want, and are strong enough, and wise enough to find our way forward. Choosing to be who we are, and honoring our own uniqueness will open new doors and pave the road ahead. Every dream we seek is there, waiting for us. By being honest with ourselves, and doing what we value most, we will find great reward and fulfillment. Nothing can keep us from anything we desire. By standing strong and stepping forward, we will reach every destination and success.

Some people are very confident and believe they have all the answers. They may tell us what we should do, how we should do it and where we should go. We can take any advice we like, but nobody, no matter how smart they think they are, can possibly know us better than we know ourselves. Our lives belong to us and we can do anything. By being true to who we are and what we want, we will reach every goal and find great happiness.

The power of the group can be intense. It’s easier to work with others if everyone follows the same path, but differences bring great depth and variety to our experience. There are endless roads to every destination and never one perfect way forward. By trusting ourselves, we can speak up and share our perspective. Everyone has something to offer and if we allow all voices to be heard, our experience will be enriched and deepened.

Today if you’ve been copying someone else’s choice because it’s easier or you are unsure, trust yourself. You already know exactly what you want. Decide on your goal, and take the first step forward. You are stronger and more powerful than you imagine. Every single dream is there for you, and you will reach them all.

Going Solo

26 Apr

Life is full of opportunities and we can do anything we like. Our lives are ours to design and every goal is possible. We are in control of our decisions and can make them in ways that take us closer to the destinations we most desire. There will always be others around us, and if we share our vision with them and explain what we want to accomplish, they may cheer us on, or they may disagree and try to dissuade from our dreams. Everyone has their own opinions about how things should go, and we’re all entitled to choose any path we like. We can listen to any suggestions or advice, and then do exactly as we please. We never need agreement or permission to create any scenario we desire. After all, our personal journey is for us, and nobody else. We aren’t here to pave the way for anyone else’s dreams, and we never need to hold ours back because others don’t like it or don’t think we should proceed. We know what we want and although support and agreement is nice, we don’t need it to succeed. We can go solo and chart our own course to every destination we seek. The whole world is there for us, and every conceivable plan is possible. We need only decide what we want and begin forward. We can do what is necessary to achieve complete happiness, even if we must do it alone. We’re born alone and we’ll certainly die alone, but in between there will be others around us. Their influence may be great, and we may value their experience and wisdom. They may want us to do as they ask or go along with them, but we don’t have to follow their lead. We are entitled to our own dreams and desires and have everything we need to make them ours. We can trust ourselves to create the lives we want the most and find great happiness and satisfaction.

It’s great to build good, strong relationships with those around us. Having family and a network of friends can embellish and enrich our lives. We may enjoy spending time with them, sharing activities, and learning new things. They may invite us to do many things, or want us to emulate their decisions, but we never have to do anything we don’t want just because we have a connection. If they want us to go somewhere we’re not interested in, or do something that isn’t right for us, we may politely decline. Having a relationship doesn’t mean we must be the same.

Our journey is ours to determine. We are unique and individual, and there never has been, nor will there ever be anyone exactly like us. The roads we choose to travel are ours to choose, and we may go anywhere and do anything. By embracing our own desires, and appreciating our specific gifts and talents, we can find great pleasure and joy each day. Every success is there for us, and we can reach them all.

Today if you’re being pressured to change your plans and go in a different direction, choose the road that will take where you most want to go. You never have to go along to get along. Be confident and chart your own course. Nobody knows you better than you know yourself. Step forward on the journey you desire and proceed toward the goal. Nothing is out of reach, and you will succeed.

Integrity

6 Apr

We can be any kind of people we choose to be. Nobody is born with a fully developed adult personality, and although there are unique traits we carry forward, the type of person we ultimately become is up to us. We can be self-centered, only valuing our own preferences and choices, or we can be welcoming and open to those around us. We can be rude and aggressive or we can be kind and helpful. We are responsible for our behaviors no matter what they are and if we want to be our best we must make choices that take us there. If we are honest and caring in all our dealings we will develop integrity. Integrity is a behavior that raises us and heightens our awareness of what is right. We can choose to value strong moral principles, be undivided in our devotion to them and unmovable in questions of honesty and honor. One of the most important things we must do is keep our promises. Every time we give our word or promise we seal the agreement with our honor. When we follow through on that agreement we gain trust and if we drop the ball we damage our credibility and honesty. If we want to be our very best there can never be a question of keeping our word. We must always follow through on our commitments. When we do, our level of integrity will increase and we will gain the respect of those around us. Being true to ourselves will help us move forward and grow. We can choose high standards and refuse to back down. We can set the bar for the world and our influence will bring great positive impact to those around us.

When we’re unsure of ourselves or don’t have confidence in what we’re doing we may rely on those around us. We may follow their lead and mimic their behaviors until we feel stronger. It’s good to emulate positive and ethical behaviors but sometimes what we see isn’t always the whole story. What looks right initially may turn out to be something entirely different. We can’t know the thoughts of those around us or understand their motivations from the outside. If we simply impersonate what we’re seeing we may end up going someplace we don’t want to be. We always have enough confidence to make our own choices and we can rely on our intuition to make them well.

It may be difficult to choose integrity and truth when someone has deceived us. If we discover we’ve been lied to and are hurt we may think first of revenge. It’s easy to think about smashing someone who has purposely manipulated us but returning the insult will never take us where we want to go. Others may choose what they will but we are only responsible for the choices we make. We can always determine to take the high road and honor our personal values no matter what others decide. When we do, our integrity will rise and we will take a step closer to the person we most want to be. There is no need to let someone else’s problems become ours. We can live our lives any way we choose and when we choose well, we will find happiness.

Today if you see some of your choices haven’t been the best you could make, decide to be true going forward. There is greatness in you. The world needs all the good you have to offer. Step up to the person you most want to be and find success. You are a shining star for the world and your light will open all the doors ahead.
