In the Moment

27 May

We’re often busy with things we need to accomplish, and as we go from one task to another, time flies by. Before we know it, the day is over, and although we may have accomplished a lot, if we didn’t pay attention to our own goals, we might feel unsettled. Each moment we’re here is priceless, and once it’s gone will never be ours again. What we do with our time matters. Nobody knows how long they’ll be alive on earth. Putting off what we most want to accomplish, and procrastinating our own success may work against us. There will always be stuff we need to do. We have lots of responsibilities, tasks that need completion, and endless details that crop up. If we don’t pay attention, days, weeks, months or even years may rush past before we stop to look at where we are. Every day is a blessing. We get one shot at it, and then it’s gone. Work will always expand to fill the time we give it. If we want to achieve our personal goals, we need to focus on them. We always do what we want to do most. Sometimes our commitments take over and leave little time for personal reflection, but we are in control of everything we do, and if we want personal success, we have to make our lives a priority. No matter what’s going on around us or how much we have to address, there will always be time to take care of ourselves. Our lives belong to us alone, and we can accomplish anything we desire. Each moment counts. We can have the lives we dream of if we take charge of our decisions and continue forward. Life is full of distractions and we may get turned around a time or two, but we know what we want, and can move toward any goal we desire and make it ours.

It isn’t selfish to focus on our own lives, and work on our own personal goals. We deserve complete happiness but nobody can give it to us. It’s our responsibility to do what is necessary to achieve it. Deciding what we want and then doing what is needed to make it ours will bring us great satisfaction. There isn’t anything too far away for us to reach, and no road too difficult to travel. We can take the time we need to move forward toward the lives we want, and achieve greatness. Everything is there for us. We need only decide what we want, and then step forward to claim it.

We decide how we’ll spend our time. There will always be more to do than we can accomplish, and we’ll never run out of tasks that need our attention. Our lives are our responsibility, and we decide how we’ll manage them. Even if we’re busy, we can make time to work on our own personal goals. It’s impossible to be completely happy if we aren’t where we want to be, or haven’t reached our desired destinations. We already know what we want, and have everything we need to get it. We can manage our time in ways that allow us to move toward every goal, and reach every success.

Today if you’ve been caught up in completing tasks and checking off boxes, remember your time is precious. Decide what you most want, and then plan your time in ways that help you achieve it. Every dream is possible, and you already possess everything you need to succeed. Step forward with confidence. Nothing is out of reach, and you will win.

Check Marks

27 Jun

When we have a lot to do and many things to accomplish we sometimes make lists. As we get something done we might check it off and move onto the next item. When all our tasks have been done and we have many check marks showing our progress we may feel great accomplishment at what we’ve achieved. Making a check mark when we complete something helps us see our progress and makes it easy to see what we have yet to do. Lists are great for chores and errands but in our personal lives the things we most want to accomplish aren’t always that easy to check off. Personal growth doesn’t happen all at once and even if we’re working hard toward achieving it, it’s unlikely we’ll check it off quickly. Change isn’t usually a one step process. It may require us to modify and re-think many parts of our lives before we can move forward. We are complex beings and nothing is ever as easy as it looks at the beginning. Personal growth is a progression from one place to another. It doesn’t happen instantaneously and may take considerable time. It won’t work to make a list of personal changes we want to achieve and expect to check them off like a list of chores. We can set small goals that will lead us to the change we want and as we master one move onto the next. Each day we can move forward a little more. We can do anything we want to do and change anything in our lives we desire but we must do it our own way on our own timetable. We don’t need a check mark to show how far we’ve come. Growth is a continual process and once we’ve reached a specific goal we may continue on to the next.

Being goal oriented helps us accomplish many things. We can make a plan, decide the steps we want to take and begin forward. When we look inward the changes we desire will require personal thought and introspection. There is no schedule or time frame restriction on personal growth. We move forward as we change and modify our behaviors. It may come quickly or it may take some time. We can take things step by step and embrace change in ways that are best for us individually.

When we really want to make a personal change, we may be impatient and expect it to happen overnight. Our personalities are complex and there are many facets to the behaviors that define us. We can change anything we desire but if we must modify long standing patterns and routines it will require effort. Forging a new road forward may take time and perseverance. With patience and determination there isn’t anything we can’t do. We have everything we need to accomplish anything we desire if we resolve to make it happen and refuse to quit. We can design our lives any way we like and there isn’t anything we can’t do.

Today if you want to change something in your life but it’s harder than you thought it would be and taking longer than you imagined, keep moving forward. The goal is within reach and you will achieve it. You have everything you need to accomplish anything you desire. Keep moving forward. You will reach the destination.
