Limits

28 Jun

When we’re trying to accomplish something, and are exercising patience as complications arise one after the other, at some point, frustration may take hold and if the process has been long and convoluted, we may feel we’ve had enough. Everything has a limit and if we’ve reached ours, we may throw our hands up, and just let everything go. We can change our minds about anything at any time, and if we’ve had enough, we might decide it’s time to surrender to defeat and move on. It isn’t easy to keep pushing forward when each step takes a long time and there are lots of issues and problems to manage. It’s hard not to feel frustrated when advancement is slow and change isn’t happening no matter how hard we try. We can always give up and admit defeat, or push the problem off onto someone else, but there is great satisfaction and growth that comes from holding the line and continuing forward. Most issues will eventually work themselves out and we can find success. Of course, there may be times when nothing works and we need to regroup and decide if continuing to press ahead is worth our time. Often success is all about timing. Just because we aren’t able to reach the goal now, doesn’t mean it’s unattainable. Life is constantly changing and in the future our situation may allow us to move forward and get to the destination. There is no need to let frustration or anxiety take control. If we’re not progressing the way we want to, we can look at the situation objectively, weigh our options and determine how we want to proceed. Every goal is possible but they aren’t all possible today. We have all the wisdom and insight we need to adjust our course when needed and find success. Nothing is out of reach and we are perfectly capable of prevailing.

It’s impossible to see every aspect of the road ahead when we begin a journey. There will likely be some twist we didn’t imagine or some turn we couldn’t foresee. It’s the nature of life and if we’re caught unaware and confused, we may feel stuck and unable to move. It may seem the goal is out of reach and too difficult to achieve. But every journey is merely a series of steps. We can take them one at a time and process any developments that occur. We have everything we need to reach any goal we desire. Every answer is there for us and we will find them.

If we’ve been on the same road pushing forward for a while, and we’re tired and overwhelmed at how much has been required to push ahead, we may feel it’s too hard to keep going. If we no longer want the goal, we can certainly step off the path and do something else. But if the destination is still important to us, we can take a break, and when we feel renewed, return and continue on. We’re powerful, and capable of finding our way forward. Nothing is too difficult or complex for us to figure out, and with time and patience, we will succeed.

Today if you’ve been pushing ahead through complications and problems, and are beginning to tire of the journey, think about what you want the most. If your desires have changed, redirect your course. If you still want to reach the goal, take a break until you feel refreshed, and start again. You can do anything. Success is just ahead.

We’re all different and everyone experiences the world in different ways.  The things that affect some of us deeply are hardly noticed by others.  We’re all unique in our expressions and interpretations and if we’re highly emotional we may feel developments more acutely than someone who is more pragmatic.  There is no wrong way to see the world but if we don’t feel strong or capable of managing whatever is happening, we may cave in and become overwhelmed.  Everyone has moments when they aren’t sure about what to do or don’t feel strong enough to face a particular issue.  It’s normal to feel overwhelmed at times but we need not let that paralyze us.  Lots of things will happen as we go through our lives and some of them may be quite intense.  If we allow the situation to control us we may fall down and struggle to regain our footing.  There really isn’t anything too powerful for us to manage.  Even if we’re shocked and have the wind knocked out of us for a moment, we have the power to engage our reasoning and stand firm.  Life can be complicated and sometimes things will go wrong – perhaps very wrong.  We can face whatever comes and hold fast knowing we will overcome.  We are stronger and more resilient than we realize and nothing is strong enough to hold us down.  Every answer we need is there for us and we can trust in our ability to do whatever we must to move forward.  We can be confident and courageous when trials come and trust we will prevail.  Nothing can keep us from success.  We can always win.

Sometimes the very thing we think we could never endure actually happens to us.  We may have imagined we aren’t strong enough to survive a serious setback.  We may do everything in our power to prevent things from going wrong, but we only have control over ourselves and there are lots of decisions being made we know nothing about.  If the bottom falls out of our plans and everything falls apart we don’t need to fall apart with it.  We can face any storm and push through.  Disappointments will come but no matter what goes wrong we have everything we need to get through.  We are powerful and strong, and nothing can stop us.

We can do everything in our power to avoid conflict, stay out of trouble, and keep the peace, and still problems will arise.  It’s the nature of life.  There will always be differences and opposition no matter what we’re doing.  Trying to stay away from it might work for a time but eventually we’ll go through trying times that are difficult to navigate.  We may get confused, feel unsure, and struggle to figure out what to do next but if we keep pushing forward we will prevail.  Everything we need to succeed is there for us.  We need only trust ourselves to find it and continue forward.

Today if you’re overwhelmed with an issue you don’t think you can manage, stand strong.  You are wiser and more capable than you realize and nothing is too difficult for you to understand and manage.  Every answer you need is already there for you.  Be confident and trust yourself.  Nothing can keep you from success.
