Remembering Again

15 Feb

Life can be complicated and we’re often busy taking care of all the details necessary to keep everything running smoothly. There can be a lot going on and sometimes if we’re so focused on getting things done and moving on to the next task, we may lose sight of the big picture. As we go through our experiences we learn new things, what works, what hurts, what stops our progress and a million other things. The lessons we gain give us insight and understanding that help us as we continue on and open new doors ahead. But life is busy and it’s possible to forget even an important lesson while we try to untangle today’s issues, and get ready for tomorrow’s. Someone may say something that reminds us of some mistake we made in the past, and we quickly remember what didn’t work and change course before we repeat a bad experience. There are reminders all around us of where we’ve been and what we’ve done already. If we’re so busy we don’t notice them, it’s possible we’ll travel down the same road that brought disaster once before and get to do it all over again. We date different people but they all have the same abusive personality, we repeat the same lack of judgement at work that creates stress and difficulty, or other things we’ve already proven do not work but neglect to change. We’re in complete control of every decision we make and there is no way to escape accountability for every action. There is nothing to be gained from lessons we choose to forget. Learning from our mistakes and using that knowledge to adjust our course moving forward will help us find happiness and reach success. We can do anything we want and have the lives we most desire by learning everything possible as we move ahead. Every destination is possible and with clarity and focus, nothing can keep us from anything we want.

Back when records were used to record music, sometimes there would be a nick in the disc creating a skip, and the music would repeat the same phrase over and over again. If we refuse to learn from our mistakes, our lives may be like that. We may repeat the same bad decisions over and over again. Repeating a bad mistake doesn’t make it better. We deserve complete happiness, and by remembering what we’ve learned along the way and applying it to what we’re doing now, we can achieve it. Everything is there for us. We just need to do what is needed to make it ours.

Traditions and routines are very powerful. There is nothing wrong with having a predictable life, but doing the same things can only bring the same results. If what we’re doing isn’t making us happy, we can change. We don’t have to stay in any relationship that doesn’t work, or keep a job that makes us crazy. There are always many options possible and we have everything we need to do anything we like. Every blessing is there for us, and with determination and patience, we can make them ours.

Today if you’re doing something that isn’t making you happy, think about what you really want. You are in control of your life and can design it any way you like. Decide how you want to proceed, and take the first step forward. There is great happiness just ahead and you will reach it.

Taking a Leap

14 Dec

There are endless things we can do if we want to.  The world is full of possibilities.  Every goal is achievable and we can do anything or go anywhere.  Before we begin, we may think about how we’ll proceed.  We can take all the time we like to consider all the options and start making a plan.  We can ponder the road ahead, write out every detail that may happen, share our ideas with those around us and think long and hard about getting to the goal.  Planning, preparing, thinking and talking may help us get organized and ready, but we will go nowhere until we take the leap and actually begin. Lots of people say they want lots of things but do nothing to get them.  They may talk about the new career they’re going to build, or the places they’re going to go, or endless plans they’re going to fulfill.  We may hear them again and again saying what they’re going to do, but nothing ever changes.  They’re still in the same place doing the same things.  Dreams and plans are just ideas until we decide to do what is need to make them real. We’re in control of our lives and can do anything but we will never achieve the goals we most desire without action. Nothing is going to suddenly appear just because we want it.  No fairy godmother or genie in a bottle is ever going to show up.  Wishing and hoping will not change our lives.  We are powerful and strong and can accomplish anything we desire. We can stop talking about what we’re going to do, and start doing it.  Every destination is there, waiting for us.  The lives we desire most are reachable.  By taking the first step, and continuing forward with focus and determination, we will make our dreams come true.

There is rarely a perfect time to begin something new.  Our lives are busy and complex, and if we wait for the perfect moment when everything is settled and lined up, we may wait forever.  There is no way to read the future and we have no idea what tomorrow will bring.  The best time to start moving toward a goal is when we decide we want it.  Once we’ve identified exactly where we want to go and what we want to do, we can step forward and begin.  The whole world is there for us, and we are the only ones who can keep us from success.

Change can be intimidating.  Even when we know what we want, it can be hard to take the first step.  We don’t know what will happen, we don’t know if things will work out the way we planned, we don’t know who will step in front of us, we don’t know anything except we want the goal.  Success often hinges on how much we want it.  Complications always arise, the road may turn, we might get pulled off track for a time or face a big detour.  It doesn’t matter what gets in the way.  If we’re determined to win, we will win. Every goal is possible.  Every dream awaits. We can do anything, and we will succeed. 

Today if you’ve been thinking about something you want but haven’t yet taken the leap, be brave and take the first step forward.  There isn’t anything strong enough to hold you in place.  You know what you want, and you are powerful enough to get it.  Trust yourself.  Every success is already there for you.  Nothing is out of reach and you will win.

Play It Again

10 Sep

Our lives belong to us and we are responsible for the decisions we make. We make choices and then face whatever consequences they bring. We can do anything we like, but if we don’t move forward in ways that take us to the things we want the most, chances are we won’t be happy. Life is complicated and there are all kinds of people who influence us and do things that may hold us back or affect us negatively. We can’t do anything about what others are doing, but we have complete control over what we do. If someone tells us to do something and we do it, only to suffer disappointment, failure or sorrow, we may try to blame them. “You made me do it!” we may protest, but that isn’t authentic. The influence of others can be strong, and if we’re under their authority we may have to do some things they direct, but those are exceptions. Our decisions are ours, and we own them completely. If we stay in a job we hate, or a relationship that is hurtful or abusive, we are deciding, for whatever reasons, that we want to stay more than we want to move. People are complex and make choices based on their experiences, impressions, hopes and a million other things. We deserve complete happiness and success, but if we don’t do what is needed to make them happen, we will never achieve them. Every decision takes us somewhere, and if we’re careful and look at all the possibilities, we can move forward and reach any goal we desire. Our happiness is our responsibility. All our dreams are there waiting, and we can make them ours.

We’ll all make a bad decision at some point in our lives. Once we recognize what went wrong, we can correct our course and start again. But if we find ourselves making the same bad choice over and over again, we can stop and evaluate what is happening. Repeating bad behaviors again and again will never take us to success. It’s like playing a record with a big scratch in it that keeps repeating the same music. It can’t move ahead, and neither will we until we uncover what is holding us back. We can do what is needed to change direction, and confidently step forward toward what we want the most.

Life is filled with possibilities and opportunities. We know what we want, but if we don’t believe we can achieve it, odds are we’ll never succeed. We don’t need to know everything about everything to be successful. By taking the first step forward and trusting ourselves to manage whatever we must to reach the goal, we will find our way to success. Nothing is too difficult or complicated for us to figure out, and we already have everything we need to prevail.

Today if you’re repeating the same mistake again, and are not moving closer to your goal, think about what you want the most. The road is already there for you. Stand strong and step forward. There isn’t anything you can’t do. Every blessing is waiting and nothing is out of reach. Be confident. You are amazing and capable, and every dream is possible.

Free and Easy

27 Apr

There are unlimited possibilities in life. We can do anything we want to do and go anywhere we desire. With planning and effort, we can have the lives we want the most, but it takes work to determine what we really want and then accomplish what is necessary to make it ours. We can design our lives and find a way to achieve any goal we choose. But if we’re lazy or complacent, we may find that time goes by and nothing changes. We’re still in the same place, doing the same things and moving no closer to our personal goals. It’s easy to stay in a routine and simply take what comes to us free of thought or effort. The old saying, “You get what you pay for,” is accurate. We are in control of our choices and can design our futures with our personal desires and dreams in mind. We never have to settle for whatever comes. We create our own fate, and decide how our lives will go. We don’t have any choice over what comes to us, but we can choose how we’ll manage every development, and push through on the roads that take us where we want to go. Nothing is powerful enough to hold us in place but if we don’t take control of our decisions and move forward with purpose, we may end up standing in place indefinitely. If that’s what we want, it’s easy to accomplish. However, if we want to find great success, we have everything we need to achieve it. It’s up to us. Our lives can be fulfilling and rich, filled with experiences that bring us refreshment and deep happiness. We have everything we need to step forward toward any goal we desire, and succeed.

The unknown can be intimidating. We can’t read the future and there’s no way to know what will happen when we set out on a new road. We might face difficult challenges, there may be roadblocks that stop us in our tracks, or unknown difficulties that test our patience and stamina. Everything may go wrong and we might feel confused and lost, but we are intelligent and capable. We can manage any complication or problem and find the solutions we need to continue forward. Every destination is possible, and we can trust ourselves to find the way through.

It’s comfortable to stay in the same place, doing the same things. We know what to expect and there are few surprises. But routine is only repetition in action, and cannot offer us anything new. Every dream is possible and we have what we need to make them reality. We can step beyond where we are, and open new doors. There are endless opportunities and blessings waiting for us if we’re willing to move toward them and make them ours. Everything is possible. Nothing is too difficult or too far to reach. We really can have the lives we dream of. With determination and confidence, we can move toward the destinations we desire most, and realize great success.

Today if you’ve been limiting yourself to a routine, decide what you want to accomplish most. Your life is important and all your dreams are possible. Choose where you want to go and take the first step forward. You are incredibly capable and nothing is beyond your reach. Be confident and trust yourself. You already have everything you need to accomplish anything you desire. Every success is there for you, and you will prevail

Tattoo

16 Sep

We make millions of decisions as we go through our lives. Much of the time which choice we make won’t matter and we’ll be able to continue forward unrestricted. But sometimes we may face a monumental decision that may change the course of our lives and affect those around us. When that happens, we try to choose the best options possible. It helps if we aren’t hindered by pre-conceived notions and unwavering ideas about how things should go. Getting at tattoo is a serious decision. Once the ink has been applied, it will remain. If we later decide we don’t want it, the process of removal may be difficult and painful. When making a decision, if we decide we will only accept one answer or one way forward and will not bend, we may remain, like the tattoo, permanently stuck in place. It’s good to have a strong sense of what we want and confidence for the road ahead, but if we draw a hard line in the sand and refuse to acknowledge or even look at different options, we may find we are unable to move. Moving forward is the only way to accomplish our goals, and there is no way to move forward and be stuck in place at the same time. We can have strong opinions and still be open to seeing other options. There are countless roads to every destination and never only one way to get to any goal. Allowing ourselves to consider each possibility will enable us to make the best decisions and find the most positive outcomes. Our lives are a reflection of every choice we make. We can go anywhere and do anything, and by seeing every option before us, we can make the best decisions moving forward. Nothing is out of reach, and we can have the lives we dream of.

Every experience we go through teaches us something. When we have difficult experiences, we may carry painful scars forward that influence how we proceed. Nobody wants to suffer and if we’ve been hurt, we may try to avoid anything that resembles what we’ve been through. If we alter our decisions based on something from the past, it may prevent us from moving forward toward the goals we desire. No matter what’s happened, we can move forward with confidence and clarity, and reach any goal we desire.

Tradition and pattern are strong influences. If we’ve always done something the same way, we may be reticent to try something new. Doing the same things over and over again will only take us to the same places. It’s impossible to go somewhere new and stay where we are. New destinations and roads can be intimidating. We can’t see the end from the beginning, and we don’t know what lies ahead. However, we have all the courage and wisdom we need to make excellent choices, and step forward with confidence and certainty. Nothing is beyond our reach and we can go anywhere.

Today if there’s a big decision ahead and you feel uneasy stepping forward, remember all the excellent decisions you’ve already made. Nothing is too complex or difficult for you to manage. Decide what you want and step forward with confidence. Every goal is within reach and every dream is possible. Nothing is too difficult for you. You are fierce and unstoppable, and you will succeed.
