Doing the Work

21 Jul

It would be so great if the things we wanted were easily available and we could just reach out and get them. We could climb every mountain, visit any destination, and achieve anything we desired. Yeah, that would be great, but unfortunately that’s not how life works. While some things may come easily, often what we want most will require careful planning, and lots of work. We can try to find a shortcut and sometimes that might be possible, but most of the time, we’ll have to forge ahead step by step until we get to the destination. Nobody gets a free pass, and we probably won’t win the lottery. Doing the work is the only sure way to pave the road ahead. We can do anything and go anywhere we want, and success is always possible, but we must be willing to do what is required to reach it. There are no magic genies, fairy godmothers, or magical stars. Every destination is possible but it’s up to us to get there. After we decide what we want, we can begin doing everything necessary to make it ours. It doesn’t matter how much work it will take, we can accomplish it. It doesn’t matter how hard it is, we can figure it out. Nothing is too big or too far away. We are stronger, smarter, and more powerful than we think we are. Every single goal is possible and each dream can become reality. We need only do the work to get there. There will probably be complications, problems may crop up, and we might have to overcome serious hurdles. Few roads are paved, but if we want to be successful, we can manage whatever lies ahead. Our lives are ours to design, and nothing is out of reach. By trusting ourselves, focusing on the goal, and doing the work, we will reach every destination we desire.

People are creative and there are all kinds of ideas about how to live our lives and become successful. There are get rich quick schemes that sound promising, but rarely work. We might get constant suggestions for ways to cut corners, and slip around details. We can do anything we like, but nothing will take us to success more effectively than good planning and consistent work. We know what we want, and have everything we need to achieve it. We can step forward with confidence, and be sure we will prevail.

We may face a time when the goal we’re working toward turns out to be much harder to reach than we thought at the beginning, and the effort it will take to achieve it is more than we can manage. If we cannot continue forward right now, we can set the goal aside until our situation changes and we have the resources we need to move ahead. Life is long, and there will be time to go back and capture whatever we desire. Success is always possible. We can have the lives we dream about, and achieve greatness.

Today if there’s something you want to gain, but haven’t yet stepped forward to make it yours, decide what you want the most. You are intelligent and capable, and nothing is out of reach. Every destination is waiting for you. Do what is necessary to achieve the goals you desire most. There is great success just ahead, and you will reach it.

In the Way

4 Dec

Life can be complicated and no matter what we’re trying to do, rarely will we be able to accomplish it without something getting in the way. Getting from point A to point B may seem simple when we start out but we can never see all the possible hang-ups and detours waiting for us on the road ahead. They appear and block our way, sometimes quite unexpectedly, and when they do, we must decide what our next moves will be. If there are continual problems and nothing seems to move us forward, we might begin to rethink our plans. We can always abandon the journey and let go of the goal if we’ve had enough hassle. We can give up and change our plans anytime we like, but walking away will never get us where we want to go. No matter how complex and convoluted the situation may get, there will always be a solution that opens the way ahead. The answers may not be obvious and we may have to dig to find them, but they will always be there. We must decide how important the goal is and if it’s worth it to us to continue. Success requires effort, and we are the only ones who can determine if the effort is worth the prize. If it is, no matter what we have to push through, we can find our way forward. There isn’t anything strong enough to hold us back if we’re determined to press on. The struggles we encounter will make us stronger and every solution we find will give us more information for the road ahead. We learn as we go, and nothing can keep us from succeeding. There are endless problems that can muddy the works and things will always get in the way. But we are wise and capable of understanding even the most complex situations. Every goal is possible and we can move forward with confidence that we will reach our destination.

Everyone is different and we all have ideas about what we should do. If the road we’re on has a lot of problems and trouble, those around us may encourage us to move on to something else. They may tell us to let go of the goal and find something easier. We can take any advice we like, and abandon our plans, but stopping will never take us to the destinations we desire. We’re in control of what we do, and if we want something, even something hard to achieve, we can manage what is needed to succeed.

Timing is important no matter what we’re doing. Sometimes the goal we seek isn’t possible when we want it. There may be extenuating circumstances we can’t control, putting the goal beyond our reach right now. But nothing stays the same forever, and in time, our situation will change, and we can try again. We can be patient and watch carefully until an opening appears. Every destination is possible, and with planning and determination, we can go anywhere and accomplish anything.

Today if you’ve been trying to move forward and there is always something else in the way, think about the situation objectively. Look at every option possible and decide on your next move. You are powerful and strong, and have all the wisdom and understanding you need to prevail. Choose how you will proceed, and be confident. Nothing is too complicated for you to understand. Every destination is possible and you will succeed.

One Bite

1 Oct

There are endless opportunities available to us all the time. We can look at all the options possible and then choose where we want to go and what we want to do. The beginning of a new quest brings refreshment and excitement as we look ahead at new destinations and what we will accomplish. Some goals are easy and don’t take a lot of time but others may be more complex, requiring us to devote many hours and lots of concentration in order to achieve them. When we have a long journey ahead of us we may be tempted to try to take some shortcuts to shave off a little of the time and effort necessary. That might work or we may find nothing but the long way forward will get us there. When we’re eager to get to the end, we may try to do more, or do it faster to move us ahead more expeditiously. Instead of taking it step by step, one bite at a time, we may attempt to take on the whole thing at once thinking it’ll speed things up. We can try anything, but that old saying of “haste makes waste” make come into play and work against us. Rushing ahead may help in some ways, but we may miss some important information and cues along the way. There is always much to be learned in every endeavor and if we’re patient and plan our steps ahead carefully, we can take advantage of everything we can gain from the experience. Taking it one bite at a time is often the best way to proceed. Unless there is some time constraint pressing us, we can move ahead at a pace that allows us to advance and still learn everything possible from the experience. Success is always there for us, and nothing can keep us from reaching any goal we desire. We have all the wisdom and courage we need to go anywhere and do anything. We can make our dreams come true and have the lives we desire.

Few things in life go as planned, and even fewer go exactly the way we want them to. Disappointments will come and getting angry and upset won’t help us process them. Life is filled with unexpected developments. There is always more going on than we can see or even imagine. When a roadblock appears and we can’t advance, there will always be a way around. There are many roads leading to every destination. If one doesn’t work, we can always start again from another perspective and find our way forward.

If we’ve been pushing forward toward a goal for a long time and don’t see any progress, it may be time to re-assess our actions. Perhaps we’re moving too quickly and missing important cues for the road ahead. Or we’re distracted by other things that take us off course and we are constantly having to regroup. Every goal is possible but we must focus and keep our eyes on the road if we want to succeed. We are capable of accomplishing anything we desire, and with determination we can reach any destination.

Today if you’ve been trying to do too much at once and are stalled in your progress, step back and look at everything clearly. Decide on the way forward and take it one bite at a time. You are amazing and powerful, and nothing is out of reach. Step forward with confidence and claim the prize. Everything is possible and you will succeed

Defining the Goal

28 Aug

The world is filled with endless opportunity and options from which to choose. We can do anything and go anywhere. There are endless things to do and we can decide on any goal or destination we desire. If we start moving forward without any planning we might end up in places we want to go or someplace else. If we want real success and satisfaction we must define where we want to go before we begin the journey and then move forward with purpose toward the goals we want. Road trips can be fun but it’s exhausting and unfulfilling to drive around indefinitely with no destination in sight. Just taking things as they come and following one path after another will take us to all kinds of different places. We’ll see a lot of things but if we haven’t decided where we want to go, we won’t arrive anywhere that takes us closer to our goals. True joy comes when we first decide where we want to go, define what we want to accomplish, and then start forward toward the goals we’ve chosen. There are endless roads to travel and we can decide which ones are ours and determine the way ahead. Nothing is out of reach and each step we take can move us closer to what we want to achieve. Our lives can be filled with success when we take the time to decide what we want and then move forward with determination. All options are possible and with our dreams in mind we can reach any destination we desire.

We can simply go through the motions of our days and hope for things to happen that will open the doors to where we want to go. We can leave our lives up to chance and let things roll out as they will, letting each day unfold on its own and see where it takes us. Chances are we’ll probably end up in some places we like and we may even reach some destinations we have in mind. But letting our lives play out with no thought or direction will not move us toward the goals we most want to accomplish. We have control over every decision we make and when we’re ready can purposely move toward the things we dream about and achieve every goal we desire.

Our personal goals are ours to define and are unique to what we want to accomplish. If we follow along with others around us and meet the goals they set we may achieve success but it will be success they have defined. We deserve to have the lives we want the most and can determine what that means. We can do things our way and in our own time. Every dream is possible if we decide we want to achieve it. We can plan our way forward and choose each road that takes us closer to the destinations we’ve chosen. We can take control and move forward toward the goals we desire. We are smart enough and strong enough to achieve anything. We know what we want and with planning and determination we will prevail.

Today if you’ve been coasting along hoping your life will go the way you want it to, take control of your decisions and decide to succeed. Take a step forward toward the goals you most want to achieve and focus on what will bring you happiness. You are amazing and capable, and nothing is out of reach. Every goal is possible and with determination and planning you will reach success.

Check Marks

27 Jun

When we have a lot to do and many things to accomplish we sometimes make lists. As we get something done we might check it off and move onto the next item. When all our tasks have been done and we have many check marks showing our progress we may feel great accomplishment at what we’ve achieved. Making a check mark when we complete something helps us see our progress and makes it easy to see what we have yet to do. Lists are great for chores and errands but in our personal lives the things we most want to accomplish aren’t always that easy to check off. Personal growth doesn’t happen all at once and even if we’re working hard toward achieving it, it’s unlikely we’ll check it off quickly. Change isn’t usually a one step process. It may require us to modify and re-think many parts of our lives before we can move forward. We are complex beings and nothing is ever as easy as it looks at the beginning. Personal growth is a progression from one place to another. It doesn’t happen instantaneously and may take considerable time. It won’t work to make a list of personal changes we want to achieve and expect to check them off like a list of chores. We can set small goals that will lead us to the change we want and as we master one move onto the next. Each day we can move forward a little more. We can do anything we want to do and change anything in our lives we desire but we must do it our own way on our own timetable. We don’t need a check mark to show how far we’ve come. Growth is a continual process and once we’ve reached a specific goal we may continue on to the next.

Being goal oriented helps us accomplish many things. We can make a plan, decide the steps we want to take and begin forward. When we look inward the changes we desire will require personal thought and introspection. There is no schedule or time frame restriction on personal growth. We move forward as we change and modify our behaviors. It may come quickly or it may take some time. We can take things step by step and embrace change in ways that are best for us individually.

When we really want to make a personal change, we may be impatient and expect it to happen overnight. Our personalities are complex and there are many facets to the behaviors that define us. We can change anything we desire but if we must modify long standing patterns and routines it will require effort. Forging a new road forward may take time and perseverance. With patience and determination there isn’t anything we can’t do. We have everything we need to accomplish anything we desire if we resolve to make it happen and refuse to quit. We can design our lives any way we like and there isn’t anything we can’t do.

Today if you want to change something in your life but it’s harder than you thought it would be and taking longer than you imagined, keep moving forward. The goal is within reach and you will achieve it. You have everything you need to accomplish anything you desire. Keep moving forward. You will reach the destination.
