Facing Fear

24 Mar

Every day is a new beginning and we never know what will happen. We have wonderful, amazing days, some boring times, and a lot of average and predictable moments. Sometimes we might face a very difficult, frightening and unsettling situation. No matter where we are or what we’re doing, everything can change in an instant. When we’re up against a big challenge that tests our stamina and courage, and we aren’t sure what to do, we may feel overwhelmed, and for a moment, may be scared out of our minds. If we’re so unsettled that we can’t think, we can stop and let everything sink in until we begin to comprehend what’s going on and start to form our next steps. Fear is a natural response to threatening or alarming situations. It may come over us quickly but it doesn’t mean we’re weak or incapable. When our fight or flight reflex has been triggered, our survival instincts are on high alert. We can run and cower, and try to hide, but the most effective response to fear is to face it openly and see everything clearly. The situation may be worse than we imagine, or it might be more workable than we first thought. By facing it head on we can clearly look at the whole picture and begin to formulate a plan. There is great power to be gained by standing firm and looking straight into the abyss. We have more courage and stamina than we think we have, and there isn’t anything that can overcome us. By calmly and bravely looking at everything, we will see the way forward, and find our footing. The world is full of surprises and there may be times we are taken off our guard. But we are powerful and wise, and nothing, absolutely nothing, can stop us.

When we go through routine days, we may begin to believe our lives are predictable, and in some ways they may be. We mostly know where we’re going, and may be sure of what will occur along the way. However, we only have control over our own personal decisions, and there are many others making choices we may know nothing about that cause ripples in the water and knock us off course. Unforeseen things may happen, we may be shocked by a sudden turn, and the road we were on may completely disappear. We are strong and can modify our direction when things change. We can find our way forward, no matter what comes.

The world is a big place and sometimes what happens in lands far away may impact our personal lives. Diseases travel around the globe, and unexpected problems arise. We are flexible and wise enough to figure out what to do in any situation. We can be proactive and care for ourselves, and do what is needed to make sure we’re safe. Nothing stays the same forever, and no matter what complications come, in time they will modify and we’ll be able to continue ahead. We already have everything we need to succeed, and with patience and wisdom, will find our way.

Today if you’re facing a very difficult situation and you’re afraid you won’t survive, trust yourself. Look at everything openly and stand strong. You are a great asset to the world and there isn’t anything you can’t do. Be confident and be sure. You are amazing, and nothing will keep you from success.

Success

10 Mar

We all want strong, fulfilling lives that move us toward what we want the most and bring us happiness. While that is always possible, we must first decide what we want. Many people say they want success, but just saying we want to be successful means nothing. It’s an obscure thought without definition or plan. What does success mean? Is it all about monetary benefits where we have all the money we want and need? Or is it something defined by accomplishing a certain level of excellence in some area, or reaching some defined goal? Whatever it is for each of us, if we want to achieve it, we must make a plan for getting there. How can we reach the goal? What must we do and where must we go? What needs to be done to pave the way forward? What changes, if any, must we make to reach it? An undefined and unspecified goal is impossible to reach. We must clearly decide what we want, and determine how we’ll get it. Once we define those things, we can begin to move ahead toward the goal. We can be as successful as we desire if we’re willing to do what is necessary to reach the goal we want. If we stay focused and continue to push forward, we will prevail. We can have the lives we dream about but they won’t just happen. Success won’t simply fall into our laps because we’re nice, or because we really want it. We must plan and then work to get what we want. Everything is possible and nothing is too difficult to accomplish. We already possess all the strength and courage we need to do anything we desire. Our lives are ours to design. With determination and focus, we can go anywhere and reach any goal.

The world is filled with endless opportunities and possibilities. There are limitless things to do and countless places to go. We’re in control of our lives but if we don’t know what we want, we may spend a lot of time standing still. The options are endless but if we stand still, we cannot experience anything new. New experiences enrich us and give us greater depth and understanding of the world around us. We can trust ourselves to step forward and open a new door. We can have the lives we dream about by taking a step forward and making it ours.

Many people equate success with money. While money can do a lot, it doesn’t create true happiness. It’s just a tool that unlocks a lot of doors. Personal happiness comes when we’re successful in the things we value. When we have strong, healthy relationships with those around us and do what fulfills us, happiness will follow. We can have deep, rich lives, and reach every goal we desire if we focus on what we want the most, and then do what is needed to get there. We deserve complete happiness, and with determination we will reach it.

Today if you’ve decided what you want the most, make a plan to achieve it and step forward. Nothing is out of reach and you can have the life you dream about. You are powerful and strong, and nothing is beyond your reach. Be confident. You will succeed and nothing can hold you down. Every dream is possible and you will win.

Completely Committed

9 Dec

There are lots of things we can accomplish as we go through our lives. We’re serious about some of them, and others we only think about as possibilities, but don’t pursue. Achieving anything requires commitment and focus, and if we’re only half way in, the chances for success are slim to none. Before we begin anything, it’s important to identify how much we really want it. If we think we want to do it, and decide we’re willing to work toward it if we get time, or the weather’s nice, or we’re not stressed, or a million other parameters, we probably won’t ever get to it. Whether we actually succeed or not depends on how much we want the goal, and how committed we are to it. If we really want to go somewhere and achieve something, nothing can keep us from it. However, if we’re only somewhat interested in it, and think we might like to have it if things work out our way, odds are we’ll never get there. There are few paved roads in life and it takes determination and focus to move toward anything we truly desire. Most goals will bring complications, road blocks, detours, and problems. When something gets in the way, if we aren’t really convinced we want to continue, we’ll end up stopping and letting go of the goal. It’s a waste of time to pursue anything we aren’t completely sure we want. We can be successful at anything we truly desire, and all our dreams can become reality if we’re willing to do whatever it takes to reach them. If we want success, we will reach it. We can decide what’s most important to us, and design our lives in ways that help us reach our goals, and achieve anything we choose.

Relationships are important and make our lives richer and more meaningful. We make personal connections with those we value and when we develop close bonds with them, they are a blessing in our lives. But successful relationships require personal investment. They don’t just happen on their own. If we want strong connections, we must be willing to do what is necessary to build them. How vibrant and enduring they are is a reflection of how much we commit to them. If we don’t spend time building them, they will not last. However, if we do what is needed to make them strong and deep, they will bring us great happiness and satisfaction.

Success in any endeavor requires focus and attention. If we kind of want to do something, we’ll be kind of successful. Every goal we desire is possible but life will never magically bring us the situations and success we want. We have to define what we want to achieve, and then do what is needed to make it ours. We are powerful and capable of doing anything we desire. By being committed to our success, we can reach any destination, and achieve any goal.

Today, decide what you want and then commit yourself to achieving it. You can achieve great success, and have all the wisdom and power you need to go anywhere and do anything. Decide what you want in your life, and then do what is needed to make it yours. Every blessing is possible. Take control and you will prevail. Nothing is out of reach.

Stand Still

22 Oct

There are all kinds of people in the world. Many of them are nice, and we make a lot of friends and acquaintances as we go through our lives. Most people try to do their best and are helpful to those around them, but some have an agenda that doesn’t include being kind to others. If we come in contact with someone who is mean or rude, who despitefully uses us to get something they want, it will be difficult and unpleasant. We may try to navigate the situation with grace but we don’t have to stand still and let someone abuse us. We’re in control of our lives and if we’re in a situation that is uncomfortable, we can step away. We never have to remain anywhere we don’t want to be. No matter who we are, what we do, where we live, or what our roles are, we are important and deserve respect. If someone around us isn’t honoring that respect, we don’t need to stand still and endure it. Walking away doesn’t mean we’re weak or can’t handle conflict. It means we value our worth and will protect it. We are responsible for ourselves and know what we need and where we want to go. Being proactive when problems occur and doing what is necessary to ensure we manage the best way possible, will move us forward and help us reach our goals. There isn’t anyone else like us in all of creation. We are unique and have gifts to offer nobody else possesses. We can ensure the connections we build take us where we want to go and provide positive influences that help us move ahead. Every goal is possible and we have everything we need to manage whatever comes and find success.

Some people are very strong willed and internally focused. They have great confidence in their decisions and choices, and want others to follow along. We may certainly go along with anything or anyone we choose, but we need never sacrifice our own initiative and creativity. Nobody knows everything and we can offer our ideas and suggestions to those around us. We are wise and capable, and can find the road to any destination we desire. Others may choose their own roads, and we may choose ours. All the answers we need to reach success are always available to us, and we will find them.

When we’re around a powerful person who dominates the situation, if we don’t agree we can speak up. Power doesn’t always equate to success. Being loud and forceful doesn’t mean we have all the answers. If our choices are being constrained and held back because someone else wants us to do things their way, we may decide to step out on our own. Our viewpoint is important and if we can’t express it where we are, we can move. Our lives belong to us and we can do anything we want. We can have the lives we dream about and reach every goal we desire.

Today if someone is telling you how to live your life and you want something different, step away and begin again. You know where you want to go and have everything you need to get there. Trust yourself and move forward. Nothing is out of reach and you can make all your dreams come true. Be confident. You’re amazing and we’re all blessed because you are here.

Whatever it Takes

3 May

When there is something we really want to accomplish we may think about it constantly. We set plans in motion to get to the goal and determine to do whatever it takes to make it happen. Although we’re dedicated to success, sometimes there may be something we must do to achieve it we really don’t want to face. We want to succeed and are willing to do anything to get there – except that. Sometimes it will be enough to do most of the work to find our way forward, but other times there will be no way to reach a goal unless we do everything required. We can try to modify the plan and find a way around the one thing we don’t want to do and go in every other direction possible. When success doesn’t come we can try again. We can keep trying as we avoid the problem hoping that without facing it we’ll be able to succeed. When our plans don’t work out we can ignore the real issue and refuse to face it for as long as we like, but if we don’t do what is needed nothing will change. It isn’t easy to embrace difficult challenges but if we want real success we can do everything required. Ignoring or denying a problem will never solve it. We can do what is needed to reach any goal we desire. We have all the wisdom and courage necessary to face anything. By taking the first step and opening all the doors to move forward we will find success. Every destination is within reach and there isn’t anything we can’t do. We can change our focus and accomplish everything we must. We are powerful and strong, and nothing can hold us back.

Our life experiences teach us new things about ourselves and the world around us. If we’ve been hurt by something in the past it may color how we feel about our future. It’s hard to trust the future after a painful experience. Our confidence may be negatively impacted and even though we want to move forward, may get stuck where we are. Each day brings new possibilities and no matter what has happened before, there are always endless chances for happiness again. We can be confident in our ability to find the road ahead and reach the goals we desire. We can bravely move forward toward any destination.

We all have things we doubt we can accomplish. Some goals are very difficult and we may not yet have the skills to conquer them. Life is filled with opportunity and we can learn anything necessary to gain any success we choose. Expanding our sphere of influence to include those who will help us and seeking out the learning necessary to move forward will take us to the goal. We need not fear anything we must do to succeed. We are more capable than we realize and nothing is out of reach.

Today if you’ve been holding back because there is something you don’t want to do to achieve a goal, remember how strong and powerful you are. There isn’t anything you can’t do and do well. Open every door and walk forward. You are amazing and powerful and nothing is beyond your abilities. The whole world is there for you. Take the first step now and keep moving forward. Nothing will keep you from success.

Steering

29 Mar

Life is filled with unlimited possibilities. There are countless roads we can travel and nothing is out of reach if we are determined to get there. Each decision we make alters our course a little and if we carefully consider the destination we want to reach we can steer our lives toward it and find success. But life is complicated and there are all kinds of people coming in and out of our daily experiences. Each one brings their own interpretations about the road ahead and we may be influenced by their impressions and opinions. We may get caught up in someone else’s goals and instead of staying on our own course, follow them. Their path may be on the same trajectory as the road we want to travel or it may take us far away from where we really want to go. When we admire someone or they have power over us in some way their influence may pull us away from our personal goals. We can follow anyone we desire but if we forsake the road we most want to travel we will not reach our destination. We are the ones driving the train in our lives. We own every decision we make. If we steer our course away from where we want to go we are responsible for where we end up. We can’t blame anyone for the choices we make. If we find ourselves somewhere we never intended to go, we can go back and re-route our course. Our lives belong to us and we can do anything we desire. Happiness comes from traveling the roads that take us to the destinations we want the most. It’s all up to us. There is nothing out of reach and we can go anywhere but we have to be in control to get there.

Lots of people may have opinions about our lives and what we should do. They may tell us they know how we can find success or give us directions that worked for them. They may have good advice for us but we are the only ones who know what we truly want. We can listen to everything we receive and make decisions based on what we want most. What is right for someone else may not fit our true desires.   Every decision we make will take us somewhere. We have everything we need to choose the roads that will lead to the destination we want and find success.

There may be times when someone close to us tries to control the decisions we make. They may feel we aren’t do things as well as they could and try to help by taking over. We are in charge of our lives and we need never relinquish our power over where we go or what we do. We are capable of finding success in our own personal way. There isn’t a road we can’t travel and nothing is too far away. We can take our time and do things our way. We are capable of great success and nothing can keep us from it.

Today if you’ve been steering your course away from the road you really want to travel, change direction and correct the way forward. Every destination is there for you and you can do what is needed to reach it. Be confident in your decisions and trust your instincts. You know what you need and where you want to go. The whole world is there for you. You can do anything and nothing is too far to reach. Press forward and you will find success.

Going Through

16 Feb

As we go through our lives we experience many new things.  Some experiences are easy, make us happy and move us forward, and others are more difficult to navigate and may leave lasting scars.  If we’ve been through a very intense and unpleasant event, and we’ve been hurt deeply or our way forward has been completely altered, we may feel the pain for some time.  Everything we go through teaches us something, and not all lessons are positive.  When we’re overcoming a difficult passage and must find a new way forward, we may feel bruised and uncertain.  We may even begin to believe we will never succeed again, and choose to stand still and hold tight to what is familiar.  We can live our lives any way we like and there is always the option of staying in the same place.  But we are capable of achieving even our highest expectations and if we stand still we will never know how far we could go.  There is comfort in familiarity and if we’re recovering from something difficult, staying close to what we know may help us feel strong again.  But once we’re back on our feet and things have settled, we can start on a new road and begin once more.  Life is filled with opportunity and there is nothing we can’t do.  We can be courageous enough to let go of pain from the past and move forward with confidence.  The road is long and we have much to learn.  Walking forward and pushing ahead will help us become the people we really want to be.  We are stronger and braver than we realize.  There is nothing we can’t do.  We can move forward and overcome any obstacle.  Our lives belong to us and we will find happiness and success.

If we’ve been through a traumatic event and our lives have changed dramatically, it can feel like we’ve fallen into a deep well that is impossible to escape.  The only constant in life is change.  No matter where we are or what’s happening now, it will change.  There is no way to hold anything in place forever.  When it feels like everything is out of control and we are held down by pain or fear, we can step back and trust that soon things will be different.  We are capable of managing anything that comes to us.  Time will turn the tide, and we will find our footing again.

We cannot control what others do or what comes to us but we are always in control of our own lives.  Our decisions are always in our power and even if we feel lost we can make our own choices going forward.  There will always be another road to walk on, and another way to get where we want to go.  Nothing is strong enough to hold us in place or take our choices from us.  We can decide how we want to continue forward.  Success is always there for us and no matter where we are now, there is a road that will take us to it.

Today if you’ve been through a difficult passage and are holding yourself in place, remember how strong and capable you are.  There isn’t anything too complicated for you to overcome.  Your life belongs to you alone and you can make excellent decisions.  Look ahead and choose the road you want to travel.  Be confident and begin forward.  Everything you dream of is waiting for you and you will reach it.
