Off the Mark

11 Jun

Life takes us to many places, and sometimes our circumstances turn and suddenly we’re someplace new. If we’re far from our intended destination, we may wonder how we got there and what to do next. We can’t control most of what happens and when our situation changes without warning, and everything is modified, we may be confused and concerned about what’s happening and how to manage it. There’s no way to predict what will come to us. Because of decisions out of our control, or developments we couldn’t foresee, we may end up on a road to someplace unexpected. Nothing in life is permanent and everything is always changing. We may be way off the mark from where we want to be, and have to deal with a new reality. Our plans may not work right now, and we may have to wait, but in time, every opportunity will present itself and if we’re ready, we can turn back onto the road we desire most. Learning to be flexible and bend when there are modifications will help us manage disappointment and find the way forward. We may have to put our dreams on hold for a time, and take undesirable steps in a direction far from where we want to be. But nothing lasts forever, and if we keep our focus, when the situation changes again, we can step forward and start over. Being off the mark only postpones our ability to succeed. We will always get another chance to reach the destinations we desire. Nothing is out of bounds and we have everything we need to prevail. We can be patient in the meantime, and do what is necessary to move forward so that when the chance to break free arises we’ll be ready. Every dream is possible and with determination and patience we can reach every goal we desire.

We all have control over our decisions but there may be times in life when we must bend to someone else’s choices. Professional pressures, family relationships, and other complicated situations may prevent us from doing everything exactly the way we want to do it. If we must alter our course to accommodate a situation we can’t control, our plans may have to wait until our circumstances change. Our destinations will always be there for us and when we can take more control over our direction, we will find them.

It’s hard to be patient when we want something. It’s hard to wait for people to move out of our way or for the situation to correct itself so we can step forward. But waiting gives us time to refine our choices and decide exactly how we want to proceed. When the opportunity to start again is available, we can continue with our plans and move forward. We can achieve anything we like but we can’t achieve it all today, and there will always be a chance tomorrow. All our dreams are possible. With careful consideration and planning, we will make them ours.

Today if things have changed and you can’t move forward the way you want to, do what is necessary to take care of what’s happening and effectively manage the situation. Your chance to start again will come. Be wise, and be patient. Every dream is still possible and you will prevail.

The Third Law

28 May

Newton’s third law of physics tells us that for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. Nothing in life happens in a vacuum and every decision we make brings a result. As we make choices, we may have a good idea what the result will be based on what we know about the situation and what we’ve chosen, or we may not know where our decision will take us. But they all take us somewhere. There is no way to remain where we are as we step forward on the road ahead. Everyone wants to make good choices, and for the most part we will. But sometimes if the circumstances are confusing, or we get inaccurate information, or our emotions influence us in ways that don’t work, we may choose badly. When we take the first step on any road, we will inevitably end up where that road leads. Every journey has a destination and if it’s somewhere we don’t want to go, it’s up to us to step off the road we’re on, and go in another direction. It’s unlikely others will intercede and move us onto a better path. We’re in charge of our lives, and are responsible for every choice we make. Even if we feel swept along and pressured to continue on the wrong road, we can always step away and choose another path. Nobody knows us better than we know ourselves, and we have all the courage and determination we need to direct our lives toward the destinations we desire most. There are unlimited choices to make, and with patience and wisdom, we can find the roads that take us where we most want to go. Our lives are ours to design. We need never go along or follow others. We know what we want and have everything we need to get it. We can choose our own journey and reach any goal we desire. Nothing is out of reach and we can make all our dreams a reality.

Some people may think they know what’s best for us. They may constantly give us direction or try to persuade us to do things they feel will take us where we need to go. They are certainly entitled to their opinions, and we can listen to their advice if we like. However, our lives belong to us and we are the only ones who have complete understanding about what we need and what we want. We can choose the road ahead even if it’s different from what others recommend, and move forward with confidence and clarity.

There is no way to see the end of any road from the beginning. Even if we plan well and choose the best possible option at the beginning, things may change and we may find we aren’t headed where we most want to go. Learning to turn and adjust our trajectory with each new development will enable us to reach the destinations we desire and help us find success. Life is all about change and we are certainly flexible enough and wise enough to navigate the road ahead to ensure we find success.

Today if you’ve made a decision that isn’t taking you where you want to go, stop and look at all the options possible. Find the road that leads you to success and start again. There isn’t any destination you can’t reach. Choose your next steps carefully and begin. Every road is there for you and you can do anything. Be confident and step forward. Success is waiting for you and you will reach it.

Bumper Cars

15 May

It’s fun to ride the bumper cars at carnivals and fairs. We have the opportunity to drive around in small, little cars and run into those around us, jamming them and preventing them from moving forward. It’s funny to see what happens as we bounce around and try to drive when others are pushing us. Bumper cars are fun but when we’re trying to get through a task or reach a goal, it’s nice to be able to move forward without any complications. However, sometimes it can feel like our lives are like being in bumper cars at the fair. Everywhere we turn something is in the way and if we try to move forward, something comes along and pushes us off track. We only have control over our own decisions, and other people may do things that keep us from moving forward or hold us in place. It’s impossible to get closer to our goal if we can’t advance and just continue to drive around in circles, knocked one way and another. Life can be filled with all kinds of complications and we don’t always know what others are doing or how their decisions will impact our plans. But we’re in control of our own choices and when we see the road ahead is blocked, we can find another way. There are many roads to every destination. We can leave the bumper car behind and choose a path that’s clear and available that will take us to our goal. We may have to backtrack or go in the opposite direction for a time, but eventually we’ll be able to maneuver onto an open road and continue forward. Every destination is possible but they aren’t all easy to get to. We may have to redesign our plans again and again until we find what works. It doesn’t matter how many revisions it takes. We can continue moving forward and reach any goal.

There will be few times in our lives when there is only one option for success. Generally, there will be several possible scenarios that will take us where we want to go. Any road we choose can be modified to take us to any destination. Things may not be ideal and we may have to wait until our circumstances change before we begin. It doesn’t matter when we start. Every step will take us closer to the goal and if we’re determined and focused, nothing can keep us from success.

There may be times when no matter what we do, we can’t move forward. We may be stuck because of circumstances beyond our control, or decisions being made by others. If we can’t advance now, we can let go of the goal until things change and we can start again. Nothing stays the same forever, and if we’re patient and watch carefully, we will find the chance to begin. Every goal is possible and we can make all our dreams come true. We can be wise and patient, and then with determination and focus, reach any destination we desire.

Today if you’ve been pushed off track and feel like you can’t move ahead, step back and look at the situation clearly and objectively. There is a way forward and you will find it. Be confident. Choose the road ahead and begin again. You can go anywhere and do anything. Nothing will keep you from success. You are powerful and wise, and will find the way forward.

We go through all kinds of experiences and changes as we navigate through our lives. Each day brings us new lessons that teach us and give us tools for success. Our understanding of life deepens as we experience many different situations and scenarios, and we decide what we want as we move forward. Sometimes we progress exactly as planned and move continually ahead toward our goals. But other times things happen that turn us back around into a situation we thought we had left behind. Something happens that reels us back in and before we know it we find ourselves back at the beginning where we don’t want to be. People are complex and sometimes we make decisions that take us off the road leading forward and loop us back to where we’ve been. Even if we want to change our lives, the pull to return can be great. It’s possible to go back and revisit situations from our past and still continue moving forward, but if we cling to them it will be more difficult to head to the future. We don’t have to sever our connections to where we’ve been but if we want to find success moving forward we can’t hold onto situations that keep us in place. We know what we want and are capable of every success we desire. No dream is out of reach. If we find ourselves stepping back we can step forward again. The road ahead is always there for us and we can achieve any goal we desire.

We are responsible for the lives we live. If we’re unhappy, frustrated, or unfulfilled, it’s up to us to change the situation. We deserve complete happiness but we are the ones responsible for bringing it into our lives. If we want to change we can. There may be pressure from those around us to keep things the same, we may be afraid to alter our course because we don’t know what will happen, or we may be lazy and decide we can deal with things as they are. But there are unlimited possibilities around us and we can do anything we really want to do. We can choose the path that will take us exactly where we want to go and find complete contentment knowing we are in control of our future.

It’s easy to stay in a routine, even if it’s not what we want. We know where we are and what to expect. We may step away for a moment, but if we aren’t committed to change we may be quickly pulled back. We are in charge of our lives and nothing is strong enough to hold us down when we want to move forward. We can do anything we desire and no destination is too far to reach. We can step away from situations we don’t want and open all the doors ahead. Our lives belong to us and we can design them any way we choose.

Today if you find yourself looping back to what you left behind and want to continue forward, be confident and turn around. The whole world is there for you and anything is possible. Let go of anything that holds you in place and move ahead. You are strong and capable and nothing will keep you from success. Step forward. The future is there for you and you will reach it.

In the Weeds

20 Feb

As we live our lives we go through all kinds of struggles and complications, problems and difficulties, and sometimes it seems we will never succeed. We have dreams we want to work on, goals we want to achieve, and when there is a lot to untangle we may feel we’ll never get to them. It’s like trying to find the way through a complex and convoluted maze with blinders on, and can feel like the obstacles before us will never end. If we must push through a lot just to move forward a little we may become overwhelmed and tired, and feel we’ll never prevail. Even if we can see the road ahead, if we’re caught in the mire where we are, moving forward may seem like an impossible dream. As we tire of the struggle we may lose hope and give up. But there is always a clearing ahead. There is always a road in front of us. No matter how tangled we are, and no matter how thick the weeds become, if we continue to take another step forward we will reach it. It may take time to find it, and we may make a few wrong turns, but if we continue the road ahead will open for us. Every problem has a solution. There isn’t anything strong enough or convoluted enough to hold us in place forever. If we keep moving forward, if we keep pushing ahead, we will find all the answers we seek. Life can be hard, but we are strong and capable, and nothing is too difficult for us to manage. We have all the endurance we need to continue. We can be confident even when we fail, and courageous even when we stumble. Everything is there for us, and we have everything we need to succeed.

Sometimes the road ahead seems endlessly perplexing and continuously complicated. If we get overwhelmed, we may decide moving forward is impossible. There are a lot of factors involved in every decision and sometimes the goals we want to reach aren’t available to us when we want them. If we can’t move forward, if the weeds are too thick, we can set the goal aside for a time and return to it later when our circumstances have changed. Often success is about timing. We need never give up on anything we want to achieve, but we can step away until our situation modifies and we can move forward.

Success doesn’t always come with the first try. If we aren’t committed to the objective, the first time things go wrong we may give up and walk away. But if the goal is important we can do whatever it takes to achieve it. There is nothing too far out of reach or too difficult for us to understand. We can do anything we desire. We are wise enough to figure out any complication and strong enough to continue forward.

Today if you’re in the weeds and the road ahead is hard to find, decide how you want to proceed. You can reach any goal you choose if you are willing to do what is needed to get there. Decide on the way forward and proceed with confidence. There isn’t anything you can’t do. You are strong, wise, and powerful. Choose your next step. Success is always there for you. Nothing will stop you from reaching the goal.
