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.

Chapter One

26 Feb

We go through many experiences as we navigate the years of our lives. Each stage brings new things to discover as we learn more about ourselves and the world around us. But life isn’t divided into defined segments. It’s a continual process of learning and growing, but things may happen along the way that mark specific changes in what we’re experiencing. Like starting chapter one of a new book, we may be in situations where suddenly our lives have turned and we’re stepping on a new road. A new job, marriage, the birth of a child, a painful breakup, the death of a spouse, and a thousand other things may instantly change us moving forward. Important changes that affect us deeply give us the opportunity to review what we’re doing and where we are. We may choose to change everything, go in a completely new direction, or we may decide to stand still. Life is all about change, and sometimes those changes are far reaching and permanent. When our world shifts and we’re on a new road, we may feel uncomfortable, but facing a new story doesn’t mean we can’t succeed. With determination and focus, we can make what is uncertain and foreign become sure and familiar. There are great adventures for us and our first steps toward them may be unsettling, but once we move ahead, we will gain greater confidence and find comfort and satisfaction. The first chapter of a book never tells the whole story. It unfolds with each page. We can step forward and take advantage of every possibility as we move closer to the destination. Every success is there for us, and nothing is out of reach. We can be confident we will prevail and find joy and gratification in the process.

There are all kinds of books out there. Some have similar plots, and we can tell after the first few pages what will happen next. Others are more complex, and we have no idea where they will take us. Our lives are often the same. There will be predictable outcomes we expect and can prepare for, and there will be other times when unexpected developments surprise us and knock us down. We never know what will come but whatever it is, we can be sure we’ll have what we need to find our way forward. We can resolve even the most difficult and complex problems. Nothing can keep us from advancing, and we will prevail.

When we’re moving along in one direction and happy with our progress, if a sudden roadblock appears, we may be stopped and no longer able to move forward. If that happens, we can waste a lot of time trying to make it work, or we can change direction. It’s hard to turn around when the destination we desire is straight ahead, but everything changes in time. Turning our course doesn’t mean giving up. The goal is still possible, and when the doors open again, we’ll be ready to move ahead.

Today if something has changed and you’re facing a new and difficult situation, remember all the times you’ve already been successful. You are highly capable and will find the way forward. You know what you want and have everything you need to achieve it. Be sure of yourself and step forward. Nothing can keep you from the destinations you seek, and you will succeed.

Successful Failure

10 Feb

There are unlimited possibilities in life, endless places to go and infinite things we could accomplish. We will never run out of new things to do or destinations to reach. If we live our lives fully and embrace new options and ideas, we’ll have incredible experiences that will enrich us and give us great depth and understanding of the world around us. But taking a chance on something new requires courage and faith. If we’re afraid of failure we may not venture out of our normal routines. It’s fine to live a small, restricted life if that’s what we want, but limiting our exposure to something new will never enrich us. Routines are comfortable and easy. We mostly know what to expect and it’s easy to repeat the same behaviors and patterns over and over. We can pave the road simply by continuing to walk over it. Repetition is simple but there is no refreshment or enhancement to what we already know. We can accomplish great, amazing things if we trust ourselves to step forward toward them. Being afraid of failure and standing still will never move us forward. New roads that are foreign and untraveled can be intimidating, but we are smart and once we take the first step, can make them ours. Failure may happen, but it doesn’t mean we can’t reach the goal. When we fall down or get lost, we learn more about what works and what doesn’t. If we look at missteps as a learning process instead of the end of the road, we will overcome any obstacle. There isn’t anything strong enough to keep us from progressing and we have everything we need to unravel any complication or problem in the way. Every single dream can be ours if we’re willing to do what is necessary to obtain them. Nothing is out of reach, and we can have the lives we desire.

There is no life manual to help us prevent making a wrong turn. There’s no alert coming to warn us of dealing with certain people or choosing a particular path. Everything is open and available, and we can do anything we like. We learn by doing and we’re going to make some mistakes along the way, but each will give us good information for moving forward. By learning all we can as we move along, we will gain all the skills and tools we need to succeed.

There may be times when it seems no matter what we do we can’t move ahead. There is always another problem or complication that blocks our path. If we focus on the difficulties, we may begin to believe we’ll never succeed. We may think we don’t have whatever it takes to get to the prize. That will never be true. Trouble may come and the road might get hard, but we are stronger than anything we must face. Every single answer is already there for us and with determination and courage, we will prevail.

Today if you’ve been hesitant to start something new, afraid you will fail, be confident. You are amazing and powerful, and can accomplish anything you desire. Decide how you want to proceed, and step forward. Every single dream is possible, and you will make them yours.
