A Thousand Miles

8 Sep

We all have ideas about how our lives should go and what we want to do.  If we were all alone in our pursuits and could keep anything from blocking our way forward, success would come easily.  But there are billions of people sharing the planet with us and some of them can get right up in our faces.  Despite our best efforts to dodge obstacles we may get waylaid and find that we are nowhere near our goal.  We may feel like we’re a thousand miles away from it.  Getting pushed off course by something that happens over which we have no control or going along with someone else’s plans may take us far from where we want to go.  People can be very persuasive and if they want us to participate in something important to them we may step away from our chosen path to follow them.  It’s important to find ways to get along with others and we all want to be helpful and kind, but we don’t have to forsake what is important to us.  We can set personal limits on our time so that we have the resources we need to pursue our own goals.  People will take all the time we’re willing to give and it’s up to us to determine where the lines are.  We can always redirect our course and redefine our priorities.  If we want to change our direction we may change it.  We are always in control of our lives and can move closer to our goals by taking steps in the direction that will lead to them.  Nothing is out of reach and we can always achieve success.

It’s easy to blame others or situations when we lose our way.  While there are times in our lives when we must do things that take us off our chosen path, we can continue forward by modifying our journey and continuing to focus on our goals.  No matter what we’re doing we can take another step forward.  There is great reward and happiness when we find ways to work successfully around any obstacle.  We deserve to have all our dreams come true, and by keeping our eyes focused on the way forward we can achieve anything.

There are endless distractions in life.  There are things that are fun and enjoyable, developments that complicate our lives over which we have no control, and even some mindless distractions that do nothing but waste time.  We can engage in any activity we choose at any time but if we want to achieve our personal goals we must value the time we give them.  The road forward is always there for us.  We can procrastinate our choices but we will never complete any journey we don’t start.  Every destination is available to us and we can do anything we desire.  Choosing to work toward what we want most will bring us happiness and satisfaction, and make our lives fulfilling and joyful.

Today if you know where you want to go but have been distracted by activities around you, think about your way forward.  Take the first step on the road that will lead you to success.  There isn’t anything you can’t accomplish and all your dreams can come true.  Focus on what’s most important to you today, work around any obstacle in your way, and begin the journey.  The destination is waiting for you and nothing will keep you from it.

No Power

25 Aug

Our lives can be complicated and there may be times when we have many things to deal with at the same time.  When we’re stressed with many issues that need our attention we must work hard to keep all the balls in the air.  It isn’t easy to solve many things at once and although we will accomplish everything that needs to be done, in the midst of the process we may feel overwhelmed.  The tension and pressure to resolve issues may make us feel agitated and on edge, and sleep may elude us as we try to process everything before us.  We all face difficult and challenging periods in our lives and no matter how strong and capable we are, the continued pressure may wear on us.  After a while we may feel we can’t take anymore.  Our power feels diminished and we are exhausted.  Our batteries die and our energy fades.  When that happens, the only way to continue is to stop.  It seems counter-productive to stop in order to go forward, but once our power has been drained we must stop and recharge.  We can step away for a time, find refreshment, forget about all the issues before us and rest.  If we take a short break, leave the situation and allow our minds to wander, we may be amazed at how clear things become.  We will be able to see everything in a different light and as we allow our minds to clear, answers we’ve been seeking will have the chance to rise.  There is no problem or complication that is beyond us.  We can solve anything but we can’t move forward if we’re overwhelmed and exhausted.  Taking a few moments to find respite and relax will give us renewed energy and clarify the way forward.

There is an answer to every problem we face.  All roads lead to a destination and there is never only one way to get there.  If the road we’ve been traveling is complicated and there are continual road blocks moving forward, we can look at our options and find another path.  Even if the problem has always been solved one way in the past we can choose a new way to get to the destination.  Every option is available to us and thinking about new ways forward may open new resolutions previously hidden.  We have everything we need to solve any problem.  Keeping our minds open and our eyes focused on the way forward will help us resolve any issue before us.

Nobody needs to re-invent the wheel.  If we get stuck we can reach out to those around us for additional information, advice or counsel.  We all have a lot to offer and our understanding and comprehension of issues will differ.  We can draw on the experience of others and use their expertise to help us find the answers we need.  We don’t have to do everything alone and we can bring others in who may have a perspective that allows us to move forward.  We are wise and competent and there isn’t anything we can’t do.  We will find every answer and every solution if we step back, take a break, and seek help from those around us.

Today if you’re facing several complications and you are overwhelmed at the tasks before you, take a moment to step back and see everything clearly.  Allow your mind to rest and the answers will come.  You have everything you need already to find success.  Step back, stop and then move forward.  All the answers are there for you.
