Starting Again

16 Dec

There are a lot of things we want to accomplish and goals we want to reach. Some of them are personal and require us to change habits or patterns that may be difficult to let go of. We might start out strong, completely committed to the goal, and then our lives get busy and we get distracted. Eventually we may begin to slide back a little and lose our focus, and then before we know it, we’re completely off track and going in the wrong direction. Maybe not for the first time. Our set routines are strong and powerful, and change doesn’t come easily. We are capable of changing anything we want, but it takes real determination to hold fast to our focus, and decide not to waver. We can have the lives we want the most, but they won’t just happen because we’ve decided we’re ready for them. Nothing can change if we keep doing the same things we’ve been doing. Once we decide, really decide, we’re ready to redirect our course and do things differently, the change will come. We are more powerful and stronger than we think we are. Nothing is too difficult or complex for us to manage, and we can go anywhere and do anything we desire. We just have to decide what we want, and then do what is needed to get it. Nothing is out of reach, nothing is too big to tackle, and nothing will take too long. Every goal is within our grasp and we will reach success.

If we’ve tried to make a change before and gotten waylaid and off track, only to return back to where we started, we might begin to believe the goal is beyond what we can achieve. There are some things that may not be possible at this time in our lives, but most things we desire are within our capabilities. They may not be easy to get, they may take a lot of time and effort, and the road to get them might be hard to travel. There may be all kinds of reasons not to push forward, but the most important reason to continue is because we want the goal. Our lives are a reflection of every decision we make. If we don’t like where we are, we can move. If we don’t like the situation we’re in, we can step away. We’re in complete control and can do anything we choose.

It doesn’t matter how many times we return to the beginning and start again. It doesn’t matter how long it takes us to do what is needed to reach any goal. What matters is that we live our lives according to our own personal desires, and push toward the destinations we want the most. Everyone has their own opinions and we don’t need anyone else’s approval or permission to do anything we desire. We can design our lives any way we want them, and find great joy and satisfaction in doing what’s most important.

Today if a goal has eluded you, and you’re starting again, remember how strong and capable you are. Every goal is possible and with determination and focus, you can go anywhere and do anything. You really can have the life you dream of. Decide what you want, and then take the first step forward. You can achieve greatness and find complete happiness. Every success if possible, and you will prevail.
