Step Two

6 Jul

There are all kinds of scenarios we envision for our lives and many different things we want to do and experience.  We can work hard toward our goals and with determination and persistence may achieve many of them.  There will be times when things don’t go the way we planned and what we thought we’d gain escapes us.  There are countless factors always involved in every decision we make and most of them are out of our control.  When we get stopped and everything we thought would work out has crashed and burned, we may get stuck at step one of our plan.  We can redirect our path forward and decide if the original goal is still worth the effort or if we want to let it go and move on to something else.  We can always roll over and give up when the going gets tough.  We’re in charge of our lives and can change anything we like at any time.  But if we still want to push forward toward the destination we’ll have to create a new plan and begin again.  There is always more than one way to accomplish any goal.  If our first attempt doesn’t work, we can try again.  If that fails, we can create yet another plan and can continue until we find the path that takes us all the way there.  Our lives are ours to design and we can do anything we want to do.  We only need to decide exactly what that is.  Everything is possible if we’re willing to do what is needed to succeed.  If one road doesn’t work we can choose another.  There are unlimited possibilities and nothing can keep us from success.

We never have to stay in a situation we don’t want.  It doesn’t matter what others are doing around us, it doesn’t matter what is expected or how things usually go.  We can live our lives any way we choose and if we don’t like where we are, we can move.  We can leave relationships that are unfulfilling or that don’t make us happy.  We can move from locations that don’t offer us the opportunities we desire.  We are always in control of our lives and if we want something different we can get it.  Complete happiness is possible and by directing our lives toward the things we want the most, we will find it.

It’s easy to go along with the routines we’ve established even if we’re unhappy.  There is comfort in knowing what to expect and it takes courage to reach for something more.  But we have sufficient courage to step away from where we are and strive for the lives we most desire.  Every dream is possible and we can begin moving toward them whenever we’re ready.  The whole world is there for us and nothing is too far or too difficult to reach.  We need only take the next step forward and start on the road that will take us where we want to go.  All roads are open and waiting.  The possibilities are endless and we can achieve any goal we desire.

Today if you’re stuck and want a change, look ahead and decide what you want the most.  You can have the life you dream about.  You can make your dreams come true.  Take the next step forward toward the destination you desire.  Every opportunity is possible and nothing is out of reach.  Make your dreams come true and find the happiness you deserve.

Reverse Engines

6 Apr

When we’re moving forward through our lives we may be in situations that push us one direction or another blocking our way ahead, or there may be unexpected surprises that alter our course going forward.  If we are determined to reach the goal we can take all the complications and issues in stride and find a way around them.  But sometimes we may find we’re headed toward something we don’t want.  Maybe our personal circumstances have changed since we started out, or maybe the destination isn’t exactly what we thought it was at the beginning.  Whatever the reason if we determine the path we’re on isn’t right for us we can stop, reverse engines, and turn around toward something else.  If we’re traveling forward with others who still want the goal ahead we may face push back if we decide to step away.  Many people like things to stay the same and don’t want change to interfere with their plans.  If they have authority over us or we esteem them in some way, we may continue forward to keep the peace but our personal desires are important and will constantly niggle at us.  Doing things we don’t want will never make us happy.  Our personal desires are important and by choosing the roads that take us where we really want to go we will find peace and contentment.  Time spent in pursuits we don’t care about is precious time wasted.  We can choose what’s best for us and re-route our direction at any time.  Every choice we make takes us somewhere.  It’s up to us to ensure the choices we’re making today will take us where we want to be tomorrow.  If we’re on the wrong road, we can step off.  If we’re going in the wrong direction, we can turn around.  We are in control of our decisions and our happiness depends on making them well.  Everything is possible and we can go anywhere we want to go.

If we’re timid and unsure we might allow someone else to tell us where we should go and what we should do.  Those around us may have good suggestions but the only person with true inspiration and insight into our lives is us.  We know ourselves better than anyone else.  We can listen to the advice of others and then choose what we want most.  Every road is possible and nothing is out of reach.  We are strong enough and wise enough to make excellent decisions and accomplish anything we choose.

Nobody is perfect and there will be times when we make a choice that doesn’t work out.  If we choose a path that doesn’t bring us success, we can choose again.  There are many roads to every destination.  We can choose and, if need be, choose again until we reach the goal.  The possibilities are endless.  We know what we want and we can find our way to any destination we truly desire. Life is a great blessing.  We can live each day fully and do everything possible to make all our dreams come true.

Today if the road you’ve been traveling isn’t going where you really want to go, step off and redirect your course.  You know what you want.  Be fearless and choose the path that will take you to it.  Every option is available.  You are strong and powerful, and nothing is too far to reach.  Move forward toward success.  There is nothing you can’t do.

One More Time

19 Jan

The first time we try to do something we really want to accomplish sometimes things don’t work out. We don’t succeed and the path we tried didn’t take us to the goal. When that happens we have to decide how to go forward. We can quit and let the goal go, and determine that it’s too hard or will take too long or any other reason we choose. Or we can try again. If we really want to accomplish the goal we can try a different method, take a different road, or get help from others. It depends on how important it is to us. But every choice we make that takes us off the road to the goal we’re seeking or takes us closer to it is ours. We just have to choose what we want to do. We will do what we want to do most. We can try again or we can let it go. But if we decide to try again one more time, and we reach the destination we’re seeking we will be happy.

Sometimes we all complain about our lot in life. We may be disappointed with the way things have turned out and feel like we should have more. Fortunately, nobody’s life is frozen in time. We have the power to change. We can change our personal situations, our relationships, our location, our jobs, and everything else. There isn’t anything we can’t do and if we aren’t happy with our lives as they are now, we can begin moving in a different direction. When we choose a new path it will be foreign to us, and we may stumble. We might face a detour or even a dead end. But we can try again and adjust our trajectory until we get pointed in the right direction. We can find our way to any destination we choose. We may not get there on the first try, we may get lost on the second try, and we may hit a road block the third time out. But we can always try one more time. We get unlimited chances in this life. There is nothing that can stop us from reaching our goals if we want them badly enough.

If we’ve been trying to go forward for a while and don’t feel like we’ve made any headway, we may feel discouraged. But discouragement is just a distraction and can be eliminated. We are learning as we go. If we haven’t yet succeeded, we’ve learned which ways won’t work and which roads don’t go where we’re headed. That’s valuable information that will help us moving forward. When we know what doesn’t work, we can move forward with what does. Life is full of opportunities for growth and understanding. The more we learn, the smarter we become. If we keep knocking on doors, one will open and lead us closer to our goal. But if we want to succeed we have to keep knocking, we have to keep going, and we have to be willing to try one more time. No matter how many one more times that turns out to be. We can do that. We are resilient and strong enough to accomplish anything.

Today if you’ve been discouraged because you haven’t been able to achieve your goal, try one more time. Choose a different path, or try a different method. You can achieve anything you choose. There isn’t anything you can’t do. Try again, and you’ll get there. The goal is in sight. Look carefully and you’ll see it. Extend yourself and you’ll reach it. You can accomplish anything. Keep going.
