New Day

24 Jan

As we go through the many experiences in our lives, sometimes things will go well, sometimes they won’t, and we’ll have many different adventures. There is endless variety in what may come and we may be very surprised by the way things develop. We know what we want and where we want to go, and when we’re ready, can try hard to accomplish our most desired goals. If we’re very lucky, and nobody gets in the way, we may reach the destination without any delays or complications. Although that may happen once in a while, most of the time there will be some sort of obstacle to overcome or some development we couldn’t have predicted or prepared for. We’re intelligent and capable and can usually find our way around any difficulty, but we might face a time where no matter what we do, we can’t advance. Since we can’t read the future, there is no way to know how long an impasse will last. We might try to wait it out and hope for a quick resolution, but if that doesn’t happen, we may have to revise our plans. We can look at everything objectively, see all the possible options available, and then make the best decision for our next steps. Revising our plans doesn’t mean we’re giving up. We may have to set the goal aside for a time, but nothing is permanent and when things change, we can start again. No matter how bad things seem today, there will be new day tomorrow. Every goal is possible, but they may not all be possible right now. We can make a plan for moving forward, revise it when we need to, and continue on toward the goal. Nothing can hold us indefinitely. We are powerful and wise, and will find our way to success.

We may think it would perfect if we could see everything before it happened. Then we could prepare for any difficult changes coming. That is never possible, but we don’t need to see the future to handle complications when they arrive. We have everything we need already to face whatever may come. We are capable and intelligent, and there isn’t anything we can’t manage. Even if everything goes wrong, and our plans completely disintegrate, we will find our way. There are endless roads to every goal, and we are smart enough to find the one that works.

New roads bring new possibilities and opportunities, but we may be unsure as we step forward. Foreign territory can be intimidating. We have no idea what to expect, and there are many unknowns. But foreign territory is only foreign until we make it ours. By stepping forward with confidence, we own the road. There isn’t anything we can’t manage, and with courage and clarity, we can move ahead and reach our destination.

Today if your path is entangled with unexpected difficulties and complications and you cannot move, look at all the possibilities before you. There are many ways to every goal. Decide how you want to proceed, and start again. You are capable and wise, and nothing is beyond your reach. Every success is possible. Step forward. Nothing can keep you from your goal.

Out of Steam

13 Jan

We often have a lot of things going on in our lives at the same time. Our families need our attention, our jobs require our time, we have daily responsibilities that can add up, our personal health demands our focus, and there are unexpected developments and complications that always arise. Sometimes it may feel like a juggling act keeping it all taken care of. We are incredibly capable and most of the time will be able to manage whatever is required. But life can get convoluted and difficult, and if there’s too much happening, we may get overwhelmed and exhausted. We don’t have unlimited energy and it’s possible to run out of steam before we get through. We’re in control of our lives and can stand still when we need to and take the time necessary to regroup and consider our next steps. Taking a moment to reflect on what we need to do will help us recharge, and then, we can start again. We have reserves deeper than we think, and can dig deep for the strength we need. We can trust we have sufficient power to do whatever is needed at any time. There is enough wisdom and courage within us to accomplish anything, no matter how complex or difficult the road ahead. We are stronger and wiser than we think we are, and nothing can hold us in place. Every goal is attainable and every destination is possible. We can discern what is needed, and accomplish any task before us. Every success is there for us, and we will prevail.

The world is filled with opportunity and possibilities. Every goal and dream are achievable, and we can design our lives any way we desire. Some things will be difficult to accomplish, but if we’re willing to do what’s required to achieve them, we can make our dreams come true. It’s easy and takes little effort to simply let life take us where it will, but letting our lives follow wherever the current road leads will never take us where we most want to go. We can step up and take charge of our direction, and decide what we want to gain. Our lives belong completely to us, and we can find true happiness and satisfaction by choosing the road ahead.

Our relationships are important and when they are healthy and strong, bring great satisfaction and happiness to our lives. All good relationships take effort to make them vibrant and positive. However, if we’re in a relationship that takes continued work with little reward, and there is constant stress, we may tire of the struggle. We never have to stay in any relationship that isn’t working. We can decide what’s best for us, and redirect our course. We deserve complete happiness, and can be confident enough to do what is needed to get it.

Today if you’ve been pushing hard toward a difficult goal and are tired of the struggle, take a moment to step back and look at all the options before you. You can continue forward if the goal is still important, or choose another road. You know where you want to go, and will make the best decision possible. Your life is yours to design, and you can reach every success. Be confident. You are strong and powerful, and nothing can hold you down.

Free Pass

14 Nov

Every choice we make has consequences. If we’re careful and thoughtful, and do our best to choose the best possible options, chances are the consequences of those decisions will work in our favor. But people are complex and life is complicated. Things go wrong, unexpected problems arise, and we make mistakes. If we’re stressed, overwhelmed, angry or distracted, we might make a decision that isn’t in our best interest and has dire results. We are free to choose anything we like, but we’re not free to choose the results of those decisions. There is no way to escape our accountability for the choices we make. It doesn’t matter is we were stressed, upset, confused, or convinced by someone else to do something. If we make a decision, it belongs solely to us, and we’ll answer for what happens next. When we choose the first step on any path, we also choose the last. Accountability must be satisfied and there is no way to escape. We may have good excuses for why we did something, and they may be convincing, but there are no free passes. We are responsible for every decision we make. Nobody can make us do anything we don’t want to do. If we acquiesce when we know it’s the wrong choice, we must endure what comes. We can try to explain our way out, and offer any excuses we think might help us, but nothing can change the path we’ve chosen. Once a decision is made it cannot be erased. But even if we’ve erred, we can do what is necessary to fix the situation, and then proceed forward with renewed confidence and choose more carefully. We are intelligent and capable of making excellent choices, and nothing can prevent us from reaching our goals. With wisdom and patience, we can choose the roads that will move us forward and help us find success.

There are a lot of excuses and reasons for bad decisions. If the situation was intense and we felt pressured, we may say we couldn’t help what happened. We are always in control of everything we do, and even if we’re being pressed or bullied, we can stand firm and make the best decisions possible. Every choice we make takes us somewhere and by being proactive and thoughtful, we can make the best decisions that bring us the results we most desire.

It’s good to be kind and have mercy on someone who chooses badly, but justice must prevail. Nobody is perfect and even if others are considerate and understanding, we are still accountable for our choices. Once we’ve chosen a road, we must travel it to the end. There is no way to erase the past and the best we can do is choose more wisely moving forward. Life is all about learning and every step teaches us something to carry forward. We are able to learn from our mistakes and make excellent choices. Every goal is possible and with wisdom and care, we will reach them.

Today if you’ve made a bad decision that’s bringing you difficulty and trouble, think about your next steps forward. You can change course and turn your direction toward where you most want to go. Stand strong and step forward with confidence. You know what you want, and you will prevail.

Square One

30 Jul

We can do anything we want in our lives. We can set goals and achieve them, go to any destination we desire, and create the lives we want the most. We always know what we want, but sometimes we may sabotage ourselves and do things that keep us from success. There are all kinds of reasons for this – we may not really believe we can win, we may not be convinced it’s what we want, or we may let others or situations influence us and hold us in place. We may go around and around in circles, saying, and even believing we want something, but doing things that prevent it from happening, and ending up at square one. Change won’t just happen because we want it, and our dreams won’t come true simply because we feel we deserve them. We can have the lives we want but we have to do what is necessary to create them. Nobody can change overnight and we don’t have to do everything all at once. We can make small adjustments that move us closer to the goal and incorporate them into our lives in ways that work for us. We can have the lives we dream about by choosing steps each day that open the doors to realizing them. It doesn’t matter how many false starts we’ve had, and we don’t have to change everything immediately. We can concentrate today on doing what is needed to push us ahead. Then tomorrow, we can do it again. Each day we can focus on doing our best and in time we’ll reach the goal. Nothing is impossible. We are never locked in place and can change anything we desire at any time. Every dream is reachable and with persistence, determination and focus, we can do anything.

Nobody will ever make our dreams come true for us. There is no magic genie, no secret combination, or hidden mystery that will unlock the way forward. We already possess all the keys needed to open all the doors ahead. We can be confident that no matter what stands in front of us, we will find our way around it. There is no situation too complex or difficult for us to manage, and manage well. All the answers are there for us, and when we’re ready, we’ll find them.

Nobody gets a perfect life with only paved roads and no problems. Life is filled with complications, unexpected details, snags, and obstacles. But for every issue we encounter, there will be a solution. There will always be an open road ahead and no matter how convoluted things get, or how many times we falter, we can find it. We are more powerful and capable than we realize, and nothing, absolutely nothing, can keep us from success. Every dream and every desire are possible. We have everything we need to reach every single goal.

Today if there’s something you want that you haven’t yet accomplished, remember how strong and capable you are. It doesn’t matter how many times you have to start again. You can do anything you desire, and every blessing is possible. Decide what you want, and then begin toward the goal. You really can have the life you dream about. Be confident. Take another step. Nothing is out of reach and you will prevail.

Putting In

12 Jun

Life is complex and there are unlimited opportunities all around us. The options for things we can do or places to go are endless, and we’re only constrained by the choices we make. Like a huge river flowing past, life gives us the chance to jump in and see where it takes us, or chart a course to get to one specific destination. A river can be a powerful, moving force, but it can’t take us anywhere if we sit on the shore and merely watch it flow by. We can observe others making choices, choosing where they’ll go, and rejoice with them when they reach their destinations, but if we remain on the sidelines, our situation will not change. Watching life go by isn’t the same as fully living it. While it’s rewarding to watch others achieve goals, it cannot compare to the satisfaction we feel when we achieve our own. We can do amazing things, go to incredible places, and accomplish anything we desire, but first we have to put our boat into the water and begin. We have to be willing to take a chance that we’ll find our way through the current, and be able to navigate around any rocks ahead. We already possess everything we need to do whatever we desire. There isn’t anything we can’t accomplish if we’re willing to do what’s necessary to achieve it. Leaving the safety of the shore and taking a chance on the journey ahead requires courage, and we have all the courage we need. We can open new doors and learn new skills that will help us find success. There may be rough waters ahead, but we’re strong enough to get through them. We have everything necessary to push against the rapids and reach our destination, no matter how difficult or far away. Every blessing is possible and nothing is beyond our grasp. We can begin our journey, and make our dreams come true.

It’s fun to daydream about all the things we’d like to do and the places we want to see. There are endless options and scenarios possible, and thinking about what we want to do is helpful when we’re making plans. However, if all we do is imagine how our lives could be, nothing will change. We can go through the motions and stick to our routines and we’ll be successful in getting things done. But routines can only give us the same thing every day. If we want to experience everything possible, we must be willing to step away from what we know, and push toward something new.

It takes courage to step onto an unknown road. Unseen, foreign territory can be intimidating, and we may feel unsure as we move forward. But as we learn about new things, they become familiar and we make them ours. Step by step, we learn as we go, and in time can reach any destination we desire. The whole world is there for us and we can experience anything and go anywhere. We can make all our dreams a reality and live the lives we want the most.

Today if you’ve been standing back and watching others reach their goals, think about what you want the most. Decide where you want to go, and then take the first step forward. You are wise enough and brave enough to do anything you desire. Nothing is too far or too difficult for you to manage. Every destination is possible and you have everything you need to succeed. Be confident. You can make your dreams come true.

Talking Back

21 May

There are many things we want to accomplish in our lives. Some are easy and we can do them quickly and move on to other activities. Other goals take time and planning, and sometimes more confidence than we may feel we possess. If the objective is something new and we’re unsure of all the details and parameters required to accomplish it, we may doubt that we’ll succeed. We might think it’s too hard, too far to go, or too complicated with too many moving parts for us to unravel. We can always listen to any concerns that arise and can certainly let go of any goal we choose. We can set the dream down and walk away. Or we can stand firm when apprehension creeps in and instead of listening to doubt, talk right back to it. We’ve been successful in many endeavors already and will be successful again. Instead of shrinking when we see a long and winding road ahead, we can trust ourselves and take the first step forward. There is no journey too long or complicated for us to navigate. Doubts may arise, but they are simply concerns over uncertainty. We can examine them for what they are, look at everything objectively, and confidently continue forward. Every answer is there for us and even if we’re unsure about how to proceed, can be positive we’ll find them when we need them. The world belongs to all of us. Every goal is possible and we can be sure, even in doubt, that we will prevail. Each step will take us closer to the destination and if we’re determined and persistent, will reach it. Nothing is so difficult or convoluted that we can’t figure it out. We have all the wisdom and insight we need to push ahead. If we trust ourselves, and take the journey one step at a time, we will succeed. All our dreams are possible and nothing is out of reach. We can go anywhere and do anything, and can achieve every goal we desire.

Smooth, paved roads with excellent signs and directions, are easy to travel. We simply look ahead and continue forward without distress or concern. It’s easy to see the way in front of us, and the journey is enjoyable and uncomplicated. When the road to our goal is easy, getting to the destination quickly requires little effort. But our most desired destinations aren’t always easy to accomplish. They may require constant attention, and we may have to turn in different directions several times until we find the best way forward. If we’re dedicated to success, nothing will keep us from it. Every goal is possible and with determination and focus, we will reach them.

No matter how many successes we achieve, when we want to accomplish something difficult that requires complicated planning and dedication, we may wonder if we can win. If it’s complex and requires serious concentration, we may pause, unsure if we have what it will take to succeed. We are strong and capable of doing anything we really want to do. If we’re devoted to achieving the goal, even if it’s very convoluted and difficult, we can achieve it. Nothing is out of bounds, and everything is possible. We really can have the lives we want the most.

Today if you’re experiencing doubts or negative thoughts about something you want to pursue, talk back to them with confidence. Remember all the times you’ve overcome difficulties and found the answers you needed to prevail. You are more powerful than you realize and nothing is out of reach. Be courageous and step forward boldly. Every dream is possible. You can have the life you desire and make all your dreams come true.

Waiting for Luck

10 Apr

We’re always in control of our lives. We decide what we’ll do, where we’ll go, with whom we’ll associate and how we’ll live. Every decision we make defines who we are. We can make excellent decisions and each time we choose we determine the road ahead. When we know what we want and the options are clear, it’s easy to choose but sometimes the waters are muddy and seeing exactly where the choice will take us isn’t obvious. Not every decision is easy and sometimes we may have no idea what we should do. We may hesitate, or if we’re completely lost, just wait around and hope somehow, we’ll get lucky and it’ll work out by itself. Waiting for luck to save us rarely works. We must decide. Some decisions can be pushed aside and might even eventually fade away on their own, but that’s unusual. If we’re stuck and unsure, we can review everything and choose the best option possible. It might work out the way we want it to, or it might go awry, but whatever happens, we’ll find our way through. We can’t read the future and must proceed with the information we have. If there’s more to the story, or things unfold in ways we couldn’t predict, even if we’ve chosen well, we may end up somewhere we never intended to go. We only have control over ourselves and there are always unseen developments that may hinder our plans. We don’t need luck to find our way. We have everything necessary to make good choices and can modify our plans when needed. Success is always possible and nothing can keep us from getting to our goals.

When we take the first step on any path, we also choose the destination it takes us to. That’s fine if we can see where the road will end, but that isn’t always possible. We may start out thinking the end result will be one thing and then discover as we move forward that we’re nowhere near where we thought we were headed. Life is filled with unexpected surprises and when the road bends we may have to turn around and start again. With determination, focus and patience, we can go anywhere and reach any destination.

When we have to make a difficult decision and none of the options are appealing, instead of working the problem, we may decide it’s too hard and set it aside. We might hope if we leave it alone long enough, someone else will take care of it. We may have to overcome many difficult and unpleasant tasks. Working through them and learning to find resolutions will bring us great knowledge and benefit. We gain wisdom with each challenge we overcome and learn more about ourselves and the world around us. Instead of looking away, we can address each issue as it arises, confident we’ll find the answers we need and prevail.

Today if don’t want to face a difficult decision before you, remember how capable and strong you are. There isn’t anything you can’t figure out. You don’t need luck to save you. You already possess everything needed for success. Look at the situation clearly and choose the best path forward. You are amazing and powerful, and nothing is too difficult for you to manage. Be confident. You know what to do and you will win.
