Looking Up

29 Sep

Life is full of challenges. We try to plan ahead but we never know what will happen next. Some days everything sails along and we feel fine. Things are going the way we want them to, and we feel confident and settled. But nothing lasts forever, and eventually everything will change. People may get in our way, problems may creep up, the landscape may change overnight, and all our plans may go up in smoke. Our situation may go from calm and positive to turbulent and critical in a moment’s notice. It’s hard to feel good when lots of things are going wrong. It’s hard to look ahead when we feel overwhelmed and pressed down. We may face our worst fears, and doubt our ability to survive, but all is never lost. No matter what happens, no matter what comes, no matter how bad it seems, there will always be a way out. We are strong enough to face anything and there isn’t anything powerful enough to stop us in our tracks permanently. By trusting ourselves, and looking at all the options before us, we can find the answers we need to continue forward. Hard times will come to all of us. We will be tested and pushed to our limits, but we will not break. By looking up and standing strong, we can step forward. Things may go wrong, everything may fall apart, but nothing can keep us from success. There will be a road waiting, and with patience and clarity, we will find our way.

Nobody gets a perfect life where nothing ever goes wrong and they never falter. We’re all human and all make mistakes at some point. When we’re struggling it may seem like someone else has it easy, and nothing negative ever happens to them, but we never know what’s going on in anyone else’s life. Everyone gets their share of hard times and trials, and nobody is exempt.

Life has a way of looping around and a mistake we made in the past may surface and trip us up when we least expect it. Nothing is permanent, but some decisions have lasting effects. If we’re reminded of something that didn’t go well, or some mistake we made, it doesn’t need to overcome us. The past does not define our future. We can learn from what is gone, and confidently move forward.

Today if you’re inundated with trouble and feel overwhelmed, look up. There are endless roads available and every destination is possible. Do what is needed to pave the way ahead, and step forward with clarity and confidence. Every success is waiting, and nothing can keep you from it. Your dreams are still there, and you will make them yours.

Looking for a Sign

5 Aug

We make millions of decisions as we go through our lives. Many of them are inconsequential and we give them little thought. However, there will likely come a time when we must make a decision that will have far reaching consequences and may greatly impact our lives. Changing careers, getting married, starting a family and other serious changes require a lot of thought and consideration. If we’re not sure which way we should go, we may begin to look for a sign, something that will happen that points us in the right direction. Life is full of activity and we can assign importance to anything that occurs. If we have a bad day at work we can decide that’s a sign that we should change careers. If all our friends are having kids, we may decide that means it’s time for us to do the same. Attaching importance to what is going on around us doesn’t mean that what’s happening has anything to do with us. We can make anything into a sign and believe whatever we want, but the fact is, we don’t need any outside signal to do anything we like. We are intelligent and wise, and can certainly look at all the factors we’re facing and make an excellent choice for the road ahead. We can forget about seeking a sign, and take control of our lives. If we take the time to think about what we really want, we will choose the right path forward. Every single possibility is there for us and nothing can keep us from success. We can have the lives we dream about and make every dream reality.

When we’re children our families make most of the important decisions for us. As we grow and mature, we take more control over our lives and learn to make choices about what we’ll do and where we’ll go. Nobody’s perfect and we all make mistakes from time to time. If we make a big mistake and go in the wrong direction, we may feel unsure that we can choose wisely moving forward, but the past never predicts the future. We learn as we go, and take all that information with us. The world is a big place and there are unlimited roads to travel. By trusting ourselves and taking our time, we will make excellent decisions that will bring us great satisfaction and happiness.

When we’re facing a big, important decision, it’s normal to be hesitant. If the impact of the choice, whichever we go, will greatly affect our lives or those around us, we can take our time to see every possibility and choose the best outcome. There is no need to rush, no matter what the situation is. All the answers we need will be there for us and we will find the best way forward. There isn’t anything too difficult or complex for us to manage. We can step forward with confidence, and choose wisely.

Today if you’ve got a big decision to make and you’ve been looking for a sign to point the way forward, trust yourself. You already know what you want. Look at everything objectively and choose the best path ahead. You are wiser and more capable than you imagine, and every success is possible. Plan for your future, and step forward with confidence. Nothing can keep you from any goal you desire, and you will prevail.

Forever Wrong

24 Jun

Life is full of challenges and complications. Although we may feel confident about the roads we’re choosing, we share the world with lots of other people and they may have an impact on our decisions and outcomes. Everyone tries hard to live well and make good choices, but sometimes we don’t get all the facts we need, or may be influenced by someone else to choose something that goes wrong. When we make a bad decision, even if others were involved, we might find ourselves standing alone taking the blame. It’s uncomfortable to discover we got bad advice and took a wrong turn, but that doesn’t mean we are destined to be forever wrong. Everyone makes mistakes. Doing what doesn’t work teaches us what does. There isn’t a handbook for life that tells us to watch out for certain people or be extra cautious about upcoming decisions. We take things as they come and do the best we can. We’ll never get everything right every time, but if we get as many facts as possible beforehand, and take the time to see everything clearly, we have a better shot at success. Mistakes happen and although they may be unpleasant, they cannot doom us to a life of endless misery and woe. We are intelligent and capable, and no matter what’s happened we can find our way forward to success. A wrong turn doesn’t end the journey. The road will still be there and we can always find a way around any complication that arises. Every answer we need will be available and we will find them all. We learn what works by trial and error. Sometimes we’ll get everything right from the beginning. Other times we may falter and stumble, but nothing can hold us down forever, and we can get back up and try again. Success will be there for us even if we take the long way around. There is greatness in us, and sufficient wisdom and intelligence to do anything and go anywhere. By trusting ourselves and stepping forward with confidence, we will find our way forward, and reach success.

Some people are great about giving advice. They may instruct us and tell us how we should proceed, even if they’ve never traveled the road before. It’s easy to advise someone else when your neck isn’t on the line. If things go wrong, they won’t be anywhere near the disaster and can deny their involvement. It’s good to seek advice if we need help, but after everyone has given their opinion, we can trust ourselves to choose what will work best, and move ahead according to our own personal inspiration.

We already know what we want to do. The roads we travel are ours to choose, and others may disagree and try to influence us to follow them instead of taking our own path. Our lives belong to us and nobody knows us better than we know ourselves. We know where we want to go, and have everything we need to reach any destination we desire. Following someone else will never take us where we want to go. We can be confident we know what we want, and move toward our goals with clarity, sure of success.

Today if you’ve made a big mistake and feel like you’ll never be right again, remember all the times you’ve succeeded already. You are amazing and capable, and have everything you need to do anything you want. Trust yourself and be confident. The world is full of opportunities for success, and you will make them yours.

Preconceived

21 Jun

We live in an Information Age. Never before has access to information been easier or quicker than it is today. If we want to know anything, we can quickly find most facts we need with the click of just a few buttons. That’s great when we need to learn about something new or investigate a confusing situation. However, this has no bearing on the information we need from others for various projects we are working on. We can only use the information we are given and the parameters required for any task we want to accomplish. Sometimes we’ll get all the facts we need to proceed and reach every destination, but other times there may be holes in our knowledge and understanding, and we may go blindly ahead unaware that we’re headed for trouble. We don’t know what we don’t know. If we haven’t got all the information necessary to reach success, we’ll likely run into problems and snags along the way. When we hit a blockade and can’t go any further, we can ask for assistance and try to figure out what we’re missing. Black holes exist in space. We know they are there but don’t have any idea what’s in them. It’s the same when we try to advance with less than all the facts. We know where we need to go, and may have an excellent plan to get there, but without all the information we’re going to get stuck at some point. Although we don’t know what’s missing, it’s likely someone will be there who can fill in the holes. We can ask others for advice, and look for additional facts that will help us reach success. We can do anything we desire, but not every road will be clear and paved. There are going to be hiccups, road blocks, and detours that may hold us in place until we find a way around them. We have enough intelligence and insight to figure out any problem that arises, and can be confident that even if the road gets tangled, we’ll find our way forward. Every destination is possible, and nothing is strong enough or convoluted enough to keep us from success.

We all have our own opinions about things, and if we’ve heard about a difficult situation or someone who made a project stressful, it may color our idea of how things will go when we get involved. Preconceived notions are notoriously inaccurate. Trusting rumors or other people’s interpretations will never give us the entire story. We can listen to any advice or suggestions we’re given and still leave our minds open and not prejudge what may or may not happen. We’re smart enough to figure out how things work and find our way forward with confidence and clarity.

Sometimes once we start on a new project we see that everything is completely different than we thought when we started. If it turns out the destination we’re working toward isn’t something we want after all, we can stop and look at all the possibilities available, and chart a new course moving forward. We are always in control of our lives, and can do anything we like. Every goal is possible and we have enough wisdom to get all the information we need to succeed.

Today if the plans you’ve made for the road ahead aren’t working, stop and get the information you need to proceed. If you need help, ask for it. Every answer is there for you and nothing can keep you from reaching any destination. You are amazing and wise, and everything is possible. Trust yourself, and step forward. The whole world is there for you and you will prevail.

Never Ending

21 May

Life is full of decisions and choices, and we all want to make the best ones we can. Good decisions will often bring us results we like, but nobody is perfect and we’re all going to falter from time to time. There are a lot of things that may come into play that affected our ability to choose wisely. Maybe we didn’t get all the facts beforehand, or perhaps someone misled us, or we couldn’t see the whole story, or it was Wednesday. There’s a lot going on all the time and there are constant distractions happening around us. There is no way to do everything right every time. We might make a choice that just makes us uncomfortable, or it might be so far off the mark it blows up in our faces and everything crumbles. The worst disaster of all time cannot possibly last forever. Everything is always changing, and nothing is never ending. No matter what’s happened, it will eventually resolve. We might have to do some serious lifting to fix it, and we may need the help of others, but we will find all the answers we need and be able to repair whatever has gone wrong. Life will go on. A wrong turn is just that. It doesn’t mean we have to remain in place, or that there will never be the chance of success. We can re-direct our course and change direction at any time. The whole world is there for us and nothing can hold us down forever. There are unlimited roads to every destination and with determination and focus, we will find our way forward. There is endless potential for success, and we can do anything. By letting go of what went wrong, and keeping our eyes on the road ahead, we’ll find our way forward. We are powerful and wise, and will prevail.

If we’ve made a serious error in judgement, when it’s done, it’s done. We can do what is needed to correct our course ahead, and then move on. However, there may be someone who refuses to let us forget it, and may remind us of it constantly. We don’t need reminders of a past mistake, but they may bring it up over and over again. When they do, we can politely explain we’re aware of what happened and ask them to let it go. If they continue to hold onto it, it will be their burden to carry and we can ignore them.

Every experience teaches us something of value to carry forward. Instead of berating ourselves for making a mistake, we can look at everything objectively, see where we could have done things differently, and learn all we can from the experience. No matter what’s happened, life will continue, and tomorrow will come. We have unlimited chances to change our lives, and we can let go of any wrong turns and begin again. We have so much to offer. By trusting ourselves and stepping forward with confidence, we will succeed.

Today if you’re bogged down by a past error in judgement, remember how intelligent and capable you are. Previous mistakes do not determine your future. You are strong and wise, and have everything you need to reach any goal. Trust yourself and be confident. Every single destination is there for you and nothing can keep you from success.
