Aspiring For Greatness

3 Jan

The world is full of opportunities. There are limitless things we can do and endless places we could go. If we wanted to, we could do something new every single day, and still never reach the end of what is possible. Although we may understand this, it’s easy to get stuck in a rut doing the same things every day. We need to provide for ourselves and for most of us, that means working a job. Most jobs aren’t worldwide endeavors that allow for endless travel and constant new experiences. Generally, we must report to the same place and do basically the same things each day. It’s easy to keep our lives small and simply continue on the same road without looking up. Being responsible and providing for our own needs is important but that doesn’t mean we can’t express ourselves and still do things that expand our horizons and allow us to aspire to greatness. Every situation is different, but no matter where we are or what we’re doing, we can choose to be the very best we can be and extend ourselves in ways that positively impact our lives. Instead of doing the minimum requirement to continue forward, we can peel back the layers a bit, get involved more deeply and really make an impact. Mediocrity is easy to achieve. We don’t have to work hard or do too much, and can simply do the minimum required to stay in place. But there is greatness in all of us and when we choose our very best options, we’ll find enormous growth and incredible fulfillment. Our lives are ours to design. By extending ourselves, and reaching further, we can reach goals we never dreamed possible. With focus and determination, every destination is attainable and we will achieve great success.

Everyone has their own ideas about how things should be done. Others may tell us what they think we should do, where we should go, and how we should act. We’re all entitled to our own opinions, but nobody knows us better than we know ourselves. We don’t have to do things a certain way simply because they’ve always been done that way. If we want something different, we don’t need to conform. We are intelligent and highly capable and can make any choice we desire. The lives we want the most are possible, and with focus and clarity, we will have them.

It’s comfortable to stay in the same place doing the same things. We know the players and pretty much what to expect. Repetition is easy but will never make our dreams come true. It can be intimidating to move into foreign territory and do something new, but we have all the courage and wisdom we need to overcome anything. New doors with limitless possibilities are waiting. We can step forward with confidence, aspire for greatness and find incredible success.

Today if you are ready to try something new, decide what you want the most and take the first step. You already possess everything you need to do anything you desire. The whole world is there for you and nothing can hold you in place. Recognize your strength, and be confident. Every success is there for you and you will prevail.

Round and Round

2 Jul

We are always in control of our lives and can make any decisions we like. We choose where we want to go, the people we want to see, what we want to do, and endless other decisions. If we’re careful and think before we move toward something, we have a better chance of getting where we want to go and having a positive experience. But life is complicated and there are many distractions. We might, out of pressure or confusion, make a choice that takes us somewhere we never wanted to go and blows up in our faces. We are all capable of making excellent decisions, but they require thought before we jump. If we just follow our noses around without looking where we’re going, it’s likely we won’t end up exactly where we want to be. If others want us to do something, and press us to follow their direction, if we feel pressured, we may participate even if we don’t want to. We may end up going round and round in a situation we never wanted to join. Everyone has their own ideas about what we should do, but we don’t have to go along with anything we don’t want. Even if everyone else is going north, we can choose to go south. By taking control of our lives, we determine our own destiny and can achieve anything we desire. Everything is possible and all roads are there for us. Once we decide what we want, we can make a plan that will take us there, and step forward with assurance that we will succeed. Nothing is too far to reach, and every destination is waiting. We can be confident we will prevail, and make all our dreams reality.

Patterns and routines can lead us along and after a while, we may find ourselves making the same decisions over and over again without thinking. We see the same people, go to the same places, and participate in the same activities. There is nothing wrong with routines if they take us where we want to go. But if they hold us in place, and prevent us from moving toward the goals we really want, we can step away and move in another direction. We are the only ones who can keep us from success. If we’re ready for something different, we can chart a new course, and begin again.

There may be times when we get stuck making decisions that don’t work for us. It might be because of a personal relationship that is difficult, or because we are afraid of choosing for ourselves and are following someone else. Repeating the same bad choice over and over again will never bring satisfaction. Our happiness is important, and if we’re in a situation that keeps us from it, we can choose something else. We are wiser and stronger than we may think we are. Nothing can keep us down when we’re ready to move. We can step forward with clarity toward the goals we want the most, and reach success.

Today if you aren’t moving forward toward what you desire, think about how you want to proceed. You are in control of your life and can design it any way you like. Nothing is too hard for you to manage, and every goal is possible. Decide what you want the most, and begin toward it. You will find great satisfaction and happiness as you move forward, and you will succeed.

Doing It Anyway

14 Jun

We can accomplish just about anything we want to as we go through our lives. Few things are out of reach and if we’re determined to get something done, we can reach any goal we desire. If we want to do something new that’s never been accomplished before, others may tell us it’s impossible, and there’s no way we’ll succeed. There are some things that aren’t possible – we can’t fly on our own, we can’t jump over skyscrapers, or dig to the center of the earth – but most things are possible and within reach if we’re willing to work for them. Even if others have tried something and failed, it doesn’t mean we won’t succeed. If nobody else has been able to get it done, we can do it anyway. The world is filled with possibilities and we are only limited by our own personal choices. We don’t have to stay in one place, or do the same things, or remain in familiar situations. We can step out, reach for something new, and push ourselves to achieve something more. Every day brings new options and we already have what we need to experience them. Routines may make us feel comfortable but they rarely teach us anything new. We can change things up, open new doors, step on new roads, and head for someplace different. Life is filled with possibilities, and we can do anything we want to do. Variety brings refreshment and renewal, and teaches us more about ourselves and the world around us. The potential is there for us, and we can step forward and experience something we’ve never done before. We can have the lives we dream about and go anywhere we want to go. The opportunities are endless, and the whole world is waiting.

Life is filled with responsibilities and there are things we must do each day in order to care for our lives effectively. It’s easy to get caught up in them and find ourselves in a rut, and all our days may look the same with little variation. It’s fine to have a predictable life and stability is helpful when we want to move forward. But we can take care of business and still find time to stretch beyond where we are toward something new. We’re in control of our own destinies and can shape and design them any way we choose.

People may have all kinds of expectations for our lives. Our families may expect us to follow certain traditions, our jobs may require us to fit into a specific model, and others may want us to follow along with their choices. It’s always easier to interact when everyone is on the same page, but our lives belong to us. We can express them any way we want, and do what’s most important to us, even if nobody else agrees. We have unique and specific gifts to offer the world that nobody else can give. Our choices are ours to make and we can live the lives we want the most.

Today if you’ve been doing what’s expected but want something more, decide what you want and step forward. Your life is yours to design. Everything you dream about is possible. You have all that’s needed to do anything you want. Change direction and begin toward the life you desire most. It’s all there for you, waiting, and you can have it.
