Information Please

10 Dec

We’re all unique and our perceptions vary depending on the life experiences we’ve had. We might all live in the same place, and speak the same language, but that doesn’t mean we really understand each other. It’s possible to misinterpret what others are saying, or frankly have no idea what they mean even though they are speaking clearly and using words we understand. Misunderstandings happen but the problem is we don’t know what we don’t know. When interacting with someone else we may agree to do something we are sure they are requesting, and end up going a completely different direction than they asked for. How is this possible? We all have our own paradigms and viewpoints. What is obvious to one, may be completely invisible to another. That doesn’t mean anyone is stupid or wrong, it just means we’re looking at the situation through a different window. There are endless ideas and interpretations of every situation. We can always just plow ahead and hope somehow, we’ll get it right, or we could stop before we start, and ask for clarification. Asking for more information isn’t weakness, it’s wisdom. It’s hard to see through fog, and if we aren’t clear of the expectations, instead of bumbling forward, we can ask for more information until we’re sure what’s expected. Once we know where we’re headed and what the goal is, we can proceed, confident we’ll reach it and achieve success. Life is filled with challenges and trying to find our way in the dark will only make the journey longer and harder than it needs to be. We can pave the road ahead by getting all the facts before we start and ensuring we understand the objective. We are intelligent and capable and can accomplish anything we set out to do. Every goal is possible and with clarity and focus, we can reach any destination.

If we’re concerned about the opinions of others, and want to appear smart and capable, we might rush to accomplish a goal without getting all the information we need beforehand. Looking good is one thing. Being successful is another. It does no good to look confident and capable, and then fail at the task because we didn’t ask for help. The destination is the goal, not how we look accomplishing it. By getting all the facts before we begin, we can make all our dreams and goals reality.

Everyone gets lost from time to time. Losing our way or going in the wrong direction doesn’t mean we’ve failed. Taking the wrong road gives us more information and teaches us what doesn’t work. We can use that information moving forward to find the best road to the destination we seek. Nothing is complex enough to keep us from our goals. We are intelligent and can achieve anything we desire.

Today if you’re struggling to figure out which way to proceed, get all the information you can and look at all the possibilities. Every option is there for you, and you will find the right way forward. You have already accomplished so much. Nothing is too difficult for you to manage. Be confident. Success is waiting, and nothing can keep you from reaching it. Step forward and proceed. You will prevail.

Paving the Road

10 Nov

Every day we make lots of decisions about what we’re doing, where we’re going, and how we want to proceed. Sometimes, we can see where the decision will take us, and we move forward confident we’ll end up with the results we seek. Every road has a destination, and with careful thought and planning, we can get where we want to go. But not everything is obvious at the start, and we may be sure we’re headed on the right road while going in the opposite direction. All our goals are possible but everything we do either helps pave the road ahead or creates obstacles that get in the way. Which way things will go depends on the decisions we make with each step. Nobody wants to complicate their lives on purpose or tries to create more problems moving forward. Even though we may try to make the best decisions possible, we might still get hung up and stopped. We have no control over what others are doing or what will happen. The only thing we can control is what we do, and it’s possible that even if we’ve planned well, and tried to be ready for every conceivable eventually, something unexpected may happen that keeps us from success. If we do all we can to pave the road ahead and prepare in advance, no matter what comes, we’ll find the way through. Nothing is powerful enough to keep us from success. It might be delayed as we navigate through complications, but we will prevail. Life is filled with surprises and we may be pushed off course. But there are endless roads to every single destination, and we are smart enough and courageous enough to find the way forward. We may not reach it today, and tomorrow may be difficult, but with persistence and confidence, we will reach the goal. We have everything we need to do anything we desire. Each step forward gets us closer, and we will win.

There are endless choices before us with each decision we make. What we decide will either help us move forward or hold us in place. If we’re careless or rush before we get all the facts, we may choose things that create roadblocks and detours on the road ahead. We may spend countless hours trying to move around avoidable issues and problems. By taking the time we need to see everything before we jump, the journey will be easier, and we will reach the destination.

Everyone has their own opinions about life and what we should do. Before we begin toward a goal, we may get lots of advice about moving forward. We can certainly heed any suggestion or guidance we’re given, but nobody knows us better than we know ourselves. We already know what we want and where we want to go, and have all the wisdom and intelligence we need to get there. Every dream is possible, and with determination and faith, we can accomplish anything.

Today if the road ahead is convoluted and complex, remember how wise and capable you are. There isn’t anything you can’t manage. Make decisions that will pave the way to success, and step forward with confidence. You are amazing and powerful. Every destination is already there for you. Move ahead sure of success, and you’ll reach it.

Another Mile

28 Oct

We can accomplish anything we like in life, and with determination and focus, can make many dreams come true. If the goals we seek are easy to attain, we may find quick success and feel good about our accomplishments. But there are some destinations that take a lot of work and time to reach. They may require much preparation, and we might need to learn new skills and obtain greater understanding to move toward them. Everything is possible, but not everything will come easily. If the road we’ve been on has been long and difficult, and we’ve had to stretch in ways that are hard and unanticipated, if may be tough to keep going. Another mile forward may seem impossible and we might begin to doubt we’ll succeed. It takes strength and fortitude to continue when we’re tired, and courage to keep going when we aren’t sure what lies ahead. Big successes often demand big sacrifices. Do we want the goal enough to make them? Are we willing to tug and pull and stretch just a little longer? Can we trust ourselves to reach the prize? If we really want to get to the destination, we must be stalwart in our conviction that we will succeed. If the goal is important, it doesn’t matter how hard the journey is to reach it. We will always have enough to continue forward. Our lives are ours to design. We can take it easy and glide around on the simple paths. Or we can set our eyes on the goals we desire most, and do what is needed to make them ours. Every single dream is there for us. Nothing is too difficult or too far to reach. We can trust that we have everything we need to gain success, and be confident we will prevail.

We’re all individuals and have our own perspectives and ideas about what we should do and where we should go. Those around us may agree or have a completed different viewpoint. If they think our plans are too ambitious or difficult, they may try to convince us to choose something easier. We can take any advice we like, but nobody can possibly know us better than we know ourselves. Our decisions are ours to make and we don’t need agreement or permission to proceed. We can do anything and go anywhere, and reach any goal we desire.

Nobody has endless energy. If we’ve been working hard toward something for a long time, it’s likely we’ll get tired. There is no rush to reach our goals. We can take a break and step back for a while to re-evaluate what we want to do, and decide how to proceed. Standing still gives us time to see how far we’ve come, and helps us look ahead to the possibilities before us. We are intelligent and capable, and nothing is so complex we can’t unravel it. Every destination is available, and with determination and focus, we will reach them all.

Today if you’ve been working hard toward a goal you want to achieve, and the road is still long before you, remember how strong and powerful you are. If you need a break, step back and stand still. All the answers are already there for you. Decide how you want to proceed, and begin again. Nothing can keep you from any destination you desire. You have everything you need to succeed, and you will win.

Busy Signal

29 Jun

There’s often a lot going on in our lives. We have jobs, family, homes to manage, details to attend to, people to see, chores to accomplish, and endless unexpected events that arise and cause interruptions and distract us. We can achieve anything we want, but sometimes what we want to do requires us to work with someone else. If we must depend on them to succeed, and they don’t have time for us, we’ll either have to wait or abandon our plans. Some things require careful planning, and if one step isn’t possible, we may have to look at something else. It’s like trying to connect over the telephone. If we really need to talk to someone but get a busy signal when we call them, we’ll have to wait and try again later. In our personal lives, when we can’t get everything together to accomplish something we’re trying to do, it’s like getting a busy signal. Even if we’re ready to move, if we’re stuck due to circumstances beyond our control, we may have to wait and try again later, or make a new plan for moving forward. Life is full of surprises, and we never know what will happen next. If we get stuck because we can’t get everything we need to move ahead, we can set the goal aside for now, and return to it later when everything is available. Getting a busy signal doesn’t mean the goal is unreachable. We don’t have to give up and forget about what we want to accomplish. Change is constant and we will get the chance to try again. Every destination is there for us. If we can’t get there today, we can try again tomorrow. Nothing is out of reach and with determination, and focus, we will achieve success.

It’s good to build strong relationships with others and form connections that help us move forward and bring satisfaction and pleasure to our lives. But good relationships take time and effort. If we constantly push them off and cancel plans to meet, it will be difficult to build a strong connection. Constantly putting off our plans with someone else, will never build the bonds we may desire. We always do what we want to do most, and if the relationship is important, we will invest the time and energy we need to make it strong and rewarding. We know what we want and have everything we need to achieve it. With focus and attention, we can have the lives we desire most.

When someone is important to us, we want to spend time with them. If they are always too busy to see us, or can’t commit to the plans we make, the relationship will suffer. We can only control our own actions, and if neglected, our connection will diminish. Our happiness is important, and we can always move forward in a new direction. There will always be another option and a new road possible. We can reach any goal and find satisfaction and happiness.

Today if you keep getting a busy signal when you try to connect with someone else, look at all the possibilities around you. You are amazing, and we’re all blessed because you’re here. Step forward toward the destination you desire most, and move ahead with confidence. Nothing can hold you in place, and every dream is possible. Success is just ahead, and with determination and clarity, you will reach it.

Change Direction

12 Jun

There are unlimited things we can accomplish in our lives and there isn’t anything we can’t achieve. We know ourselves better than anyone else ever could, but we never know what will happen next. We can’t see the future, and there is no way to see what’s around the next corner. Although we’re in control of every decision we make, we can’t control anything else that happens. We are strong and capable, and if we’re on the road toward a goal we want to achieve, and are persistent and diligent, it’s likely we’ll succeed. But change is constant, and our ideas and desires are always in flux. We continually modify how we feel about our lives and what’s happening around us, and review all the possibilities and options we might pursue. As we grow and learn, at some point, we may decide we no longer want something we’ve been working toward. Maybe we’ve outgrown the need for the goal, or our experiences have taught us new things that make it no longer desirable. A change a of heart can happen at any time, and if it does, we’ll need to decide how we want to proceed. We never have to continue on any path we no longer want. It doesn’t matter how much time or energy we’ve invested, or how far we’ve come. We can change direction and go another way. If we no longer want the goal, we can step away and move toward something else. Our dreams are ours alone, and we always know what we want. If we’re true to our unique desires, we can have the lives we dream about. Our lives are ours to design, and we can create them any way we like. All options are there for us, and we will reach every destination.

Our time is very valuable. How we spend it will determine where we go and what we accomplish. We can do anything, and if we want to, can continually go from one idea to the next, never staying long enough to accomplish anything. If we do, we may find years have gone by and we haven’t achieved any goal. There are many distractions all around us all the time. It’s not possible to do everything that piques our interest. By specifically choosing exactly what we want to do, and then working toward the goal with focus and attention, we can accomplish anything and move forward with confidence and clarity.

Sometimes we have no control over changes that come into our lives. The road we’ve been on may suddenly disappear because of circumstances out of our control. If we can’t move forward, we can change direction and find another road. If the goal simply isn’t possible at this time, we can set it down, and move onto something new. Putting something on hold isn’t abandoning it and giving up. We can wait until our situation changes and start again. Every goal is possible. With patience and conviction, we really can have the lives we want, and make our dreams come true.

Today if your desires have changed and you no longer want to continue toward a goal you’ve been working on, decide what you want the most, and change direction. Your life is yours to design. Choose the destinations you desire most and step forward. Every dream is possible, and you have all you need to make them yours.
