Flight Plan

20 Sep

When flying a plane, the pilot doesn’t simply enter the course information into the flight computer and then lie back and relax. There are many factors that affect the plane’s trajectory and altitude, and the pilot must constantly watch what’s happening and continually make small changes to correct course. Auto pilot can assist but will not perceptively re-adjust for storms, winds or other complications, so the pilot must always be awake and aware. In our lives, we make plans for the things we want to do. We know where we want to go and what we want to accomplish and can review every option until we come up with the best plan for achieving the goal. We may make a list of things to accomplish in a specific order, or create a map of exactly how we’re going to proceed. It all looks good on paper and if we get lucky, and everything works in our favor, all may go exactly as planned. But life is complex and there are usually unforeseen complications, unplanned detours and unexpected problems. Our original plan may have been good, it may have been perfect on paper, but once we start to implement it, we may find that what works on paper may not translate into real life exactly as planned. Nobody can read the future or see what’s coming. There is no way to predict how things will go or what will arise. If we want to succeed, just like the pilot, we must find a way to constantly adjust our course. Everything is possible, but the road ahead may not be straight and paved. We are intelligent and if the goal is important enough, we will find our way no matter what happens. By thinking clearly and trusting ourselves, we can do anything we desire and find great success.

Everyone is different and our ideas are unique and specific to our own lives. If everyone was just like us, we could predict what they would do and how they would act, but that isn’t the case. We may think others will respond a certain way based on what we would do, only to be surprised that we were way off base. It doesn’t mean anyone’s response is wrong, but points to the differences between us. Our intentions may be misunderstood because our paradigms are different than those we are interacting with. The best we can do is get as much information as possible before we proceed, and then move forward. Then if things don’t go the way we planned, we can adjust and continue on.

Some people are so sure of themselves that even when it’s obvious their plan isn’t working, will hold fast to it hoping if they just keep doing the same things eventually it’ll all work out. If we’re going in the wrong direction, continuing to press forward will never take us to the goal. By keeping our eyes open, and being willing to change course if needed, we can move ahead and be confident of success. Life is all about change and no matter where we are or what’s happening, if we want to achieve the goal, we can do what is needed to make it ours.

Today if you’ve been pushing toward a destination you desire but are no closer, stop and look at everything objectively. Choose the best way forward and adjust your plan. Keep your eyes open and as things change, modify your direction so you can stay on course. You are very smart and highly capable, and nothing is out of reach. Be confident but remain open to change. You know what you want and every destination is there for you. Success is waiting, and you will reach it.

Another Day

29 May

Life is long and we may spend decades here on earth experiencing one thing and another. Every day brings something new, and no matter how old we are, or how far we’ve traveled, we will never see everything or comprehend all there is to know. Every life is different, and are the expression of choices we make. We may choose a simple life where we don’t venture too far from what is familiar, or we might be adventurous, always pushing the limits of what we can do and where we can go. Our lives are ours to design but no matter what we choose, each day when the sun rises, what we accomplish is up to us. It’s a new beginning with boundless possibilities and nothing is out of reach. We might think the life we have now is fixed, and where we are is where we’re destined to stay, but that will never be true. Just because we’ve been in the same place for a while, doesn’t mean we have to stay there indefinitely. If we’re happy where we are, we can stay there and continue on. But if we want something more, we can look at all the options available, which are endless, and make another choice. We are never restricted in place, and can change anything at any time. We don’t need permission or agreement to design our own lives any way we like. Every single day is an enormous gift. It’s ours to live and we can choose any path, and any destination we like. Nothing is off limits. If we’re willing to do what is necessary to get there, we can have the lives we dream about. Everything is possible. We already know what we want. We are smart enough and have all the courage we need to achieve anything we desire. By stepping forward with clarity and confidence, we can go anywhere, and do anything.

It’s easy to live on auto-pilot. We can simply go through the motions, get our tasks done, and take things as they come. We can sit in the back seat, and let those around us decide what we’ll do and where we’ll go. It’s certainly easier to let others make our decisions, but if we don’t control our lives, we will never do what we desire most. Nobody knows us better than we know ourselves. The smartest person in the world will never have any idea what we really want. By taking control of our decisions and choosing the roads we’ll travel, we can achieve any goal, and go anywhere.

Others may have opinions about how we should live our lives. If we want to change, they may tell us we’re fine where we are, and encourage us to continue doing what we’re doing. Opinions belong to those who have them, and never have control over us. We never have to conform to someone else’s ideas or follow those around us. We can chart our own course, and move toward any goal we desire. All options are there for us, and we can do anything. We can make all our dreams come true, and achieve complete happiness.

Today, think about what you want the most and make a plan to get there. Take the first step toward your dreams, and move forward with confidence. You are amazing and powerful, and nothing is too far to reach. Trust yourself. Nothing can keep you from success. Take the first step forward, and every dream will be yours.
