All About the Fit

20 Oct

The world is filled with all kinds of options and ideas. There will always be more to do and see than we’ll ever be able to accomplish, and we’re only limited by our own personal desires. We may have an idea about something we want to pursue, and begin toward the goal only to discover as we get closer that it’s not exactly what we wanted. We can always change course or alter our plans at any time. It’s impossible to see the end of any road at the beginning, and if we find we’re headed in the wrong direction, can turn around and start again. We might choose something that works out great, and then something else that doesn’t fit at all. If others are involved they may encourage us to keep trying when things go wrong, and we can stay on track for as long as we like. But if the plan no longer takes us to what we really want, it will not lead us to success. When we purchase clothing, we have to try different styles and sizes until we find what fits. It does no good to buy something too big or too small that is impossible to wear. We may have to try several different things until we find the right fit, but when we do, everything works out well and we feel good. The same is true in our decisions. Some things look good at first but when we see more clearly how they’ll develop, may find they won’t work out. Nothing is permanent and every decision can be modified and adjusted. Once we decide what we want, we can begin moving forward and make any necessary changes as they arise. Every dream is possible and we already have everything we need to succeed. We can trust ourselves to choose the right fit and reach every goal.

Everyone has their own ideas and may give us all kinds of suggestions and point us in all kinds of directions. What they’re doing may work well for them, but that doesn’t mean it’s what we want. We can listen to all the advice offered, and then decide how we will proceed. Each person is unique and our dreams are specific to us alone. We can find our way forward and with confidence reach every destination.

It hurts to wear shoes that are too tight, and we may develop painful blisters as we struggle through. Wearing shoes that are too big isn’t much better, and we may stumble and fall because they get in the way. When we choose things that don’t fit where we want to go, we will suffer in much the same way. We might feel constricted, or fumble around looking for the next step. We already know what we want, and nothing can keep us from our goals. We can do what is needed right now to move toward success.

Today if you’ve been wandering around unsure of your direction, decide what you want the most and step forward. You are wiser and more powerful than you think you are. Nothing is out of reach, and you will succeed. Trust yourself and be confident. Every single dream is possible, and you will make them all yours.

Just Beyond

1 Mar

We all have dreams and goals we want to achieve. It can be hard to focus on what we want most when our “to do” list is long, and our responsibilities are pressing. Endless distractions can pull our attention away from the things we desire most for what must be accomplished right now. Time continues to move forward and before we realize it, a lot of time may pass by before we revisit our personal goals. It can seem that our dreams are just beyond what we can reach but we are in control of how we spend our time, and even if there is a lot we must accomplish, we can plan to value and set aside time for our own personal progress. It may only be a few minutes on busy days, but if we are determined we can take the time needed to move a little closer to the goals we desire. Few of us have lives unfettered by outside responsibilities, and it can be difficult to make time for ourselves, but our lives are ours to design, and we can always find time for what we value most. Success is always possible, but we must do what is required to make it ours. We know what we want and have everything we need to have the lives we dream of. There will always be chores that need doing, and things to take care of, but with focus and clarity, we can plan so we can accomplish what we must and still have time to work on what we want. Nothing can keep us from anything we desire. We are intelligent and capable and can find our way forward. No matter how complicated things get or how many tasks are pressing, we can set time aside to determine our own futures. Every single dream is there for us, and we can trust ourselves to find the way forward to make them ours.

Nobody can run a marathon the first time they put on running shoes and hit the track. Completing such a huge accomplishment is beyond their capabilities the first day and after the first run, may seem impossible. But with practice, and continued time in pursuit of the goal, it can be accomplished. The same is true in our personal lives. Big goals can seem unattainable when we first look at what is needed to make them ours. The road may be long and arduous, and filled with many complications, but we don’t have to overcome everything the first day out. We can take it one step at a time and solve each issue as it comes. Each step will move us closer and in time, we will succeed.

Few things we desire will come with little or no effort. We may really want to lose ten pounds, and think about it a lot, even plan for it, but if we don’t do what is needed to actually lose it, nothing will change. The same is true for any dream we want to accomplish. Thinking about it, talking about it, making lists and plans but doing nothing will only keep us exactly where we are. Every single goal is possible and by doing the work, nothing is out of reach.

Today if you’ve been putting off your personal goals and setting aside time for yourself, remember your dreams are important. Plan the time you need to move closer to the goals you most want to achieve. Every dream is possible, and nothing can hold you in place. Be confident and sure, and you will succeed.
