Unexpected Consequence

13 Jun

Every single decision we make will bring some sort of result. Many times we can see what will happen if we choose something, but not always. Life is complex and there is no way to know everything about anything at any time. There will always be unknowns, and situations beyond our reach that may impact something we’re doing. Once we’ve made our choice and things start to unfold, all the ramifications of the road ahead will start to show themselves and we may be surprised by what we see. Some complications may be very involved and if we had known about them before hand we may have chosen another way forward. Unexpected consequences happen. We don’t know what we don’t know and even when we try our best to choose wisely, sometimes things go awry. There is no way to read the future, or predict what will happen next. The best we can do is look at all our options carefully, and decide on the best way forward. We are intelligent and highly capable. If things go wrong and our plans go up in smoke, we have everything we need to look again and make another choice. There isn’t anything we can’t do if we’re willing to continue forward. Nothing is out of reach and with wisdom and patience every goal is possible.

Some decisions have known possible results. If we smoke throughout our lives, the odds that we’ll get cancer are increased. If we constantly make poor decisions, the chances of finding happiness are minimized. If we continually overeat, the possibilities of losing weight will be lost. Sometimes even when we know the results of our decisions are not going to be what we want, we may make them anyway out of weakness, impatience or because at the moment, we just don’t care. To live well and successfully takes thought and patience. We really can have the lives we want the most, but we must be willing to choose the things that will bring it to us.

People are creative and will surprise us from time to time. Someone may take a stand and get in our way because they do not agree with what we’re doing. We share the world with billions of others and although we have the right to choose the roads we’ll take, we also have to navigate around those who are going in the opposite direction. Distractions may pull us off course, and we may get turned around and confused, but if we keep our eyes on the goal, we will find our way forward. Every success is possible and with clarity and determination, no matter what gets in the way, we will win.

Today if you have a specific goal you want to achieve, think about the decisions you are making. Choose things that will pave the way forward and help you move closer to the prize. You are smarter and more powerful than you think you are. There isn’t anything you can’t do. Trust yourself and begin. Every single dream is possible, and you will make them yours.

Try Try Try

“But just because it burns doesn’t mean you’re gonna die. You’ve gotta get up and try, try, try.” Pink

Everyone has goals they want to achieve. We all have dreams and ideas about what we want to do and where we want to go. The easy stuff doesn’t take much, we just make a plan and get it done, but some things take a lot of work and trial and error. If we’ve been pushing toward something we really want and we keep hitting roadblocks or the way ahead gets blocked, or we get off track or a thousand other things get in the way, we may begin to think we can’t do it. Trying to do something new isn’t always easy. We can’t read the future and it’s impossible to see the end from the beginning. We don’t know what we don’t know, and the first or second or third or fourth time we try, we may stumble. Every goal we desire is worth what it takes to get it, but trying takes courage and may require great stamina and focus. It’s wonderful to win and succeed and when we do we may feel jubilant and satisfied, but the winning is the reward. All the lessons and growth we gain come when we’re trying and pushing ahead. We learn what doesn’t work, we see where the pitfalls are, and we discover new things about ourselves and the world around us. Running across the finish line is igreat, but the gifts we get during the journey to get there are the blessing. We are stronger and more powerful than we think we are, and can do anything we like. Every single destination awaits, and with patience, focus and determination, nothing can keep us from success.

There may be times when the challenges we’re facing are so intense and so overwhelming we may think there is no way we can survive. The bar is just too high and the cost is just too great. We are in control of our lives and if we want to, we can let go of any goal at any time. We don’t need to justify it or make excuses. We can simply step away and do something else. But if the goal is important to us and we want to achieve it, there isn’t anything that can keep us from it. The road may be difficult, we may have to bend in ways we’ve never considered before but that doesn’t mean we have to stop. Nothing lasts forever, and if we keep stepping forward, we will win.

It’s unlikely we’ll ever be in a life or death situation where if we don’t do something exactly correct we will die. It may seem during times of intense duress that we won’t live through it, but that will never be true. If we stop and look at everything objectively and openly, we will find the way forward even in the most complex situations. We are intelligent and wise, and there isn’t anything we can’t do. We have all the courage and strength needed to accomplish any goal and reach any destination.

Today if you’ve been trying and trying to reach a goal and it’s still far in the distance, trust yourself. Every road is there for you and you will find all the answers you need. Be confident and continue forward. All your dreams are possible and they are waiting for you. Stand strong and take another step. You are amazing and will reach success.

Ending and Beginning Again

5 Nov

Nothing is permanent in life and change is constant. We all have dreams and goals we want to accomplish, and may work hard to make them ours. Sometimes things will go well and we reach our desired destinations as planned, but life is uncertain. Things can get in the way, people may make decisions that hold us back, and we might find ourselves facing a complete stop with nowhere to turn. For reasons out of our control, what we want may not be possible. Maybe the parameters needed to make it happen aren’t there, or it requires something we don’t have and can’t get. Our dream of success may face an insurmountable complication that prevents us from proceeding. If there is nothing more we can do, and we must accept the end of a journey, we may feel devastated and sad that we cannot prevail. The world around us may seem bleak and we may feel overcome with failure. Endings can be hard but the end of one road doesn’t mean we are done. When a door closes, we can take whatever time we need to adjust to our new reality, and then look ahead to something new. When we’re completely focused on moving in one direction, nothing else matters. When that changes, every other road is possible. Ending one thing opens the way for beginning something else. There are unlimited destinations out there, and once we decide how we want to proceed, we can start on our new journey. Saying goodbye isn’t always easy, but when we’re ready, the whole world is there for us. We have endless potential and can reach great success. By remaining confident, even in defeat, we can forge ahead toward whatever destination we desire, and with focus and determination, reach the goal.

The past does not predict the future. If we’ve faced a situation where our plans haven’t worked out, it doesn’t mean we are incapable of achieving success. There will never be a time when every goal we desire is out of reach, and all the doors ahead are locked. We can decide what we want the most, and then carefully and thoughtfully make a plan to achieve it. When the timing is right, we can step forward and move closer to success. We know what we want and with persistence and determination will prevail.

Reaching the end of a road gives us time to think about how we want to proceed. When there is no pressure to push forward, we can consider every option we desire and decide how we want to move forward. Taking the time we need to evaluate all the possibilities enhances our chance for success. We are highly capable and more powerful than we realize. By trusting ourselves and keeping our eyes on the destination ahead, we will succeed.

Today if the road ahead is blocked and you can’t move forward, consider all the options possible. The end of one road is just the beginning of another. Decide what you want the most and take the first step toward the goal. You are amazing and can do something incredible. Trust yourself and be confident. Every success is yours for the taking. Step up and claim them.

Everyone has their own ideas about how they should live their lives. We all have goals and dreams we want to accomplish. Some of them are inconsequential and can be achieved easily with little effort. Others are crucial and their importance weighs heavily upon us. When there’s something we really want, something we feel we must have to be comfortable and happy, and we can’t get to it, our frustration may be intense. Everything is possible but not everything will be available all the time. We only have control over ourselves and may face a time when due to unforeseen circumstances, what we want is unavailable. Nothing we do will get us to it, and it remains out of reach. It’s very hard to accept defeat when we want something intensely. But if it’s not possible, and there is no way to get there, we will have to set our sights on something else, and wait. Change is constant and in time, however long it takes, whatever is in the way will move and the door will open for us. We can continue forward and keep our eyes focused on the road ahead. When things change, we can be ready to step up and seize the moment. Every goal is possible but they may not bend to our timeframe. We can be flexible and prepare for when our situation opens up, and start again. Nothing is too difficult for us to achieve, and with patience and perseverance we will prevail.

Waiting takes practice and patience. It’s hard to stand still when we want to move. But waiting gives us a chance to look at everything objectively. There may be a way around the obstacle in front of us we didn’t see when we were rushing forward. By looking carefully at every possible option, we may find the key that unlocks the road ahead. We are very intelligent and highly capable, and nothing can elude us indefinitely. We know what we want, and with clarity and confidence, can make it ours.

If we’ve waited a long time and still nothing has changed, and it seems the goal we desire is simply not available no matter what happens or what we do, we can decide how we want to proceed. Some plans may not work out and we may have to change our focus. That doesn’t mean we’ve failed, only that the idea won’t work at this time. It doesn’t mean it will never succeed. We can look at other things and continue to move forward, checking back from time to time to see where we are, and the possibilities ahead. Nothing is out of reach forever. Everything is possible and when the road opens, we can move toward success.

Today if you’re stuck and can’t move forward, decide on how you want to continue. You can work on other things and still keep the goal in focus. When things change, be ready to move and you’ll reach success. You are amazing and powerful, and nothing can keep you from anything you desire. Be confident and strong. Keep moving forward and every dream will be yours.

Another Chance

13 Jul

Everyone has things they want to accomplish, goals they want to reach, and places they want to visit. We all have an idea of what our perfect life would be like, and can do whatever is necessary to create it. Everything is possible and nothing is out of reach. Once we make a plan and begin forward, we hope the road will be clear and we’ll be able to get to the destination with few problems and complications, and sometimes that happens. But nobody is perfect and we all stumble from time to time. If we make a big mistake in judgment and end up going in the wrong direction, or make a choice that stops us cold or leads us to a dead end, we may think it’s over. We may believe we’ve screwed up so badly there is no way to succeed. When we fall down and our plans go up in smoke, we might think there is no way to continue and we’ve ruined all possibility of success, but that will never be true. We will never reach a point where there are no options left. There will always be another chance waiting in the wings. There are endless ways forward, and possibilities of prevailing. The answers may be hidden for a time, we might have to wait, or we may need to dig deep and search intently to find them, but there will always be another chance for success. The world won’t stop just because one road ends. We are intelligent and creative, and no matter what’s gone wrong, can figure out what to do next. We have millions of possibilities and unlimited times to try. We know what we want, and will find our way to success. Everything is possible, and with patience and courage, we will unlock all the answers needed to achieve anything we desire. The whole world is there for us, and we can make our dreams come true.

When we make a mistake and fall down, some may say we should give up. They may ask why we are putting ourselves through such a difficult task, and tell us to be happy with what we’ve got. We can take any advice we like, but our lives are ours to design and we can do anything. If we want something more, even if it’s very difficult to achieve, we can obtain it. Anything worth having is worth working hard for. Every single destination is possible and with determination and focus, we can make them ours.

If we want to achieve anything, the first step is believing we can succeed. If we let it, self-doubt may hold us in place and keep us from reaching our most desired goals. We are wiser and more capable than we think we are, and there isn’t anything we can’t do. By being confident, and stepping forward with clarity and conviction, we can move closer to any goal we desire. Everything is possible and nothing is off limits. We can have the lives we most desire, and reach every destination.

Today if your plans have fallen apart and the goal looks too far away, trust yourself. You know what you want and have everything you need to get it. Stand firm and step forward. Every destination is there for you and you will reach them all. Success is just ahead and it will be yours.
