Dream Dream Dream

15 Dec

Most of us want lives filled with accomplishment and success. We have goals we want to achieve, things we want to do, and places we want to go. The whole world is there for us but although life is full of possibilities and opportunities, if we simply coast through without direction or purpose, the odds of getting the lives we want the most are next to impossible. It’s nice to daydream and imagine what could be, and we can dream up all kinds of wonderful scenarios. We may imagine what it would be like if we could design the perfect life. Dreaming is fine and helps us define what we really want, but if all we do is think about how we wish things would go, nothing will change, and we’ll remain exactly where we are. Our lives are our responsibility. We can wish for change, and hope it will magically arrive, but nobody is going to open all the doors for us or pave the road to success. If we want our dreams to come true, we must do what is necessary to get them. They are there for us, and it’s up to us to decide if we want them enough to get them. Some things will come easily, and others will be more difficult, but if something is important to us, nothing can keep us from achieving it. There are endless things to do, and we already know what we want. We don’t have to dream about it and hope for it. We can make a plan, and as soon as we’re ready, take the first steps forward and move toward the goal. Nothing is too difficult or too far away. We are entirely capable of doing anything we desire. With perseverance and determination, we can design the lives we want the most and reach every destination. By trusting ourselves, and focusing ahead, we will succeed. Everything is possible. We can begin the journey today, and look forward to reaching the goal.

Nobody gets a perfect life. We all face challenges and things don’t always go the way we wish they would. We get into trouble, or trouble finds us, we miss a turn, friends let us down, the job goes south, and a million other things could go wrong. It does no good to sit and wish things were different. We live in the reality we have. Understanding what’s happening and deciding how we want to proceed will help us move toward what we want. We are never frozen in place and always have the power to change any circumstance or situation in which we find ourselves.

As we journey ahead, we may face a time when the road we’re on gets blocked and nothing we do can move us forward. That doesn’t mean what we’re seeking is unattainable, but that the road we’re on won’t take us to it. There will always be another option, and another way forward. We can adjust our direction when we need to and be confident of success.

Today if you’ve been thinking about a change, decide how you want to proceed and step forward. You are strong and powerful, and nothing is out of reach. Make a plan and begin toward the goal. Every dream is possible, and you can make them all yours. Success is already there waiting for you, and nothing can keep you from it. The whole world is full of possibilities, and you will succeed.

Turning

17 Dec

Life is filled with ups and downs.  We never know what will happen or what tomorrow will bring.  Sometimes things go wrong, and when all we planned disappears, and the hopes and dreams we counted on are no longer possible, we may be stunned, and it can be hard to know what to do next.  If everything from the life we thought we had goes up in smoke and we can’t see any hope for the future, we may feel lost and frozen in place.  What will we do now?  Where will we go?  How can we face the uncertain days ahead?  It’s difficult to know what to do when everything we counted on is gone.  But life is resilient and continues on, no matter what we’re going through.  It can seem unfair and somehow impossible that everything can continue moving forward when we’re standing still in disbelief and confusion, but the world keeps turning despite our loss and we must find a way to turn with it.  Every challenge and trial brings a blessing and even if it’s hard to see at first, will always be there for us.  When we’ve lost everything, we have the chance to start something new.  When the bottom falls away, we have the chance to build a firmer foundation.  There is opportunity in every experience and if we look around we’ll see possibilities before us, even in the depths of despair.  Our lives will continue onward and we will survive.  There’s a lot ahead of us and we can still reach our destinations.  When we’re ready we can start again, turn in a new direction, and begin to move forward with renewed confidence and clarity.

When we’re starting out in life, we may have a clear idea of where we want to go and what we want to achieve.  It’s possible all our dreams will come true and we’ll never suffer a setback, but chances are the perfect scenario won’t exactly be our experience.  Even if we do everything possible to ensure things go the way we want them to, we may face an impasse.  There are all kinds of influences we don’t know about and decisions being made that may impact our way forward.  When the door ahead suddenly closes it may no longer be possible to continue on the same road, but there are many roads to every destination and if we’re flexible and willing to bend, we’ll find them.

Disappointment is something we all experience.  If it’s great and encompassing, it may be difficult to believe we’ll ever succeed.  It’s hard to trust what hurts us and if we’ve suffered from a great loss we may lose faith in our ability to move forward.  Big disappointments hurt but they are just a signal we must change direction to keep moving ahead.  There are endless ways to accomplish any goal.  If one way fails, we can try another.  We are wise and creative, and nothing is too complicated or difficult for us to manage.

Today if you’ve lost everything you thought was sure going forward and you don’t know what to do now, give yourself time to think.  You’re smart and intuitive, and there are endless options ahead.  Decide what you want the most and turn your course toward the future.  You are capable and strong.  Nothing is out of reach.  Start again and nothing will keep you from success.
