Big T

5 Feb

There are some things in life that are irrefutable. There is gravity, the sun will rise, and we all need oxygen to survive. These are common truths we all accept. In life, there are things we can adjust and manipulate to facilitate our plans, but changing reality is impossible. Truth is the one thing that cannot be changed. What is true, is true. We can try to ignore it and pretend it’s not there, but nothing can hold truth back forever. It’s powerful and in time, however long that takes, will become evident. Some people think there are values of truth – big truths and little truths – but that’s a false assumption. Something either is true, or it isn’t. There is no sliding scale. If we want to do something and can’t get it through, we can try to force our way by manipulating the situation until it bends enough to facilitate our plan. That might work at the beginning but eventually reality will make itself known. Truth does not involve feelings or emotions, or take what’s happening around us into consideration. It simply exists as it is. What we do with it is up to us, but if we try to circumvent it, long term success will elude us. The only way to move forward effectively and successfully is to look at everything objectively and recognize what we can change, and what we can’t. If we see things as they truly are and create our plans accordingly, our chance of success will rise. Dreams are nice but living in a dream state will only hold us in place. By confidently facing reality with all it’s complications and detours, we can move forward toward any goal we desire. Nothing can hold us down when we’re determined to move. We have all the wisdom and intelligence we need to find our way through any situation. Every single success is possible, and with focus and clarity, we will make our dreams come true.

When facing difficult situations, people may make up stories or tell us the situation is different than what is obvious to us. We can say anything we want, and try to disguise whatever is uncomfortable, but that will not change the facts. We may feel bad, but facts have nothing to do with our feelings. They stand alone, and when we accept things as they are, even when they’re uncomfortable, we can begin to do what is needed to correct the situation. We are capable of managing whatever comes and have all the resources we need to overcome any problem or complication.

We will all face times when our lives aren’t exactly the way we want them to be. Maybe we took a wrong turn and ended up somewhere we don’t like, or we didn’t pay attention and got lost headed in the opposite direction of where we want to go. Where we are now isn’t a permanent assignment. We can change our course at any time. We can create the lives we want the most by facing what’s happening openly and honestly, and then doing what is needed to move us forward.

Today if you’ve been ignoring what is really happening around you, look at everything openly and objectively. You are stronger and more powerful than you imagine, and can do anything you desire. Decide how you want to proceed, and step forward with confidence. Every dream is there for you and nothing can keep you from success.

Even Keel

We have complete control over every decision we make. We can do anything and go anywhere, and at times our plans go exactly as hoped. But we don’t have control over everything. There are millions of people making all kinds of decisions we know nothing about that may impact our lives negatively. We may be sailing along thinking everything is fine and then boom, it all falls apart because of something out of our control. It takes effort to keep everything in balance, but no matter what we do, there will be times when unknown forces will prevail. Everything may go sideways, and the road we were on may suddenly come to a full stop. When sudden changes happen and keep us from moving forward, it can be hard to figure out what to do next. There are unlimited roads to every destination but finding the right one in times of stress isn’t always easy. It’s like going to the old-fashioned video store. When we walk in, we know we want a movie but after seeing the thousands of options possible, it may be so overwhelming, we may walk out with nothing. When we suddenly must decide on a new way forward, we may have no idea how to proceed. There may be lots of suggestions from those around us and we can certainly listen to any advice given, but in the end the decision is ours. Trying to keep things on an even keel when everything is up in the air can be quite a trick. No matter what happens or stands in the way right now, every destination is still there for us. We are smart, and by taking our time and looking at everything objectively, will find the way. There isn’t any problem so complicated or complex we can’t figure it out. There isn’t any goal too far away or too hard to reach. We can trust ourselves to find the answers we need and reroute our course until we’re back on track. We know what we want and have everything necessary to get it. By stepping forward with confidence and clarity, we will succeed.

Nature is consistently balanced. There are no planets wobbling around the universe in uncontrolled motion, and nothing happens before its time. Green leaves don’t start sprouting in the fall, and the sun doesn’t rise at midnight. When facing a difficult situation, we could try to re-invent the wheel in an effort to slip through and take the easy way out. That might work, but if we align our decisions and actions around what is possible in our current circumstance, we will prevail.

We’re often busy and it’s easy for our personal lives to get out of balance. If we give too much away, we may struggle from personal neglect or fatigue. If we take too much from others, our relationships may suffer. By being mindful and keeping our priorities in sight, we can be successful at accomplishing much and still maintaining an even keel. There will always be more to do than we can complete. We can use wisdom and patience, and keep moving forward toward success.

Today if everything has suddenly changed, and all your plans are no longer possible, look at all the options possible. There will be a way to continue forward to your goal and you will find it. Trust yourself and choose the best road ahead. There isn’t anything you can’t accomplish. Success is there for you and you will reach it.

Keep Climbing

26 Jan

There are unlimited things we can accomplish in our lives. We can achieve any goal we desire and reach any destination before us. The world is filled with opportunities to learn something new, gain new skills, and visit new locations. We can do anything we want. We can set our sights on the goal we want the most and step forward to make it ours. We can’t see the future and although we may do everything possible to plan the journey, there will likely be unexpected developments and complications along the way. But if we remain focused on the road ahead and keep our eyes trained on the destination, we will reach it. Like getting to the top of a high mountain, once we arrive it feels wonderful – we did it! We accomplished what we set out to do. It’s great when we reach the prize, and once we succeed, we may stop for a while taking time to appreciate what we’ve done. We have overcome and won this challenge, but the world is full of mountains and our potential is unlimited. There are more things to do and every road stretches ahead to the next pinnacle. The top of one mountain is just the bottom of the next. We don’t have to climb them all and can be happy where we are, but if we want to reach further and see how far we can go, we can keep climbing and take on the next adventure. Living life fully and pushing ourselves to be more than we are now and opening new doors ahead will bring us great experience and satisfaction. The world is huge, and the possibilities are limitless. By trusting ourselves and going further than we think we can, our lives will be enriched, and we’ll gain a greater understanding of ourselves and the world around us. There is so much to be learned and so many places to go. Every opportunity is there for us, and we can make them ours.

It can be intimidating to step into the unknown. We don’t know what to expect or what we’ll find, and things could go sideways and get dicey. We can always stay exactly where we are, where we’re comfortable and know what’s going on. Keeping our lives small and staying within the bounds of what we know is easy, but there are unlimited blessings waiting for us if we’re willing to take the chance of finding them.

Some goals seem impossible to reach. They may require a lot of planning, or skills we don’t possess and are unsure we could manage. While some destinations are surely harder to reach than others, often we find that once we take the first step the road ahead isn’t as daunting or difficult as we thought it would be. We are far more capable and intelligent than we may realize, and there isn’t anything we can’t accomplish. We can shoot for the moon and reach the stars far beyond.

Today if you’re thinking about a big goal but aren’t sure you can do it, trust yourself. You are amazing and powerful. There isn’t anything you can’t conquer. Every single blessing, and every dream is there for you. Step forward and move toward the destinations you desire. Nothing can keep you from achieving anything. There is great happiness ahead, and you will succeed.

Connections

14 Sep

There are billions of people on the earth. We will never meet them all but we are connected to them in many ways. We influence each other constantly as we navigate our lives. Whether we’re aware of it or not, we change every situation we’re in just because we’re there. We have more influence on those around us than we may realize. If we’re happy and feel good, our positive energy will show and those who see it will be drawn to us. We have the power to lift others by our example and can be a great influence for good. Conversely, if we’re struggling we may push others away. The impact we make is up to us. Our connections to those around us may be invisible but will always be present. We can be mindful of our influence and remember how important we are in everything we do. We can share ourselves in ways that are comfortable and allow others to share with us in return. When we keep our connections strong we feel more confident and supported. We’re all in this together and that bond can be the glue that takes us from trial to success. We have millions of brothers and sisters around us who can help us through difficult trials and rejoice with us when things go well.

We all process trouble differently. Some people like to talk things out with others, some people bury themselves in activity as a way to get through, and some of us just want to be left alone. Being alone can give us the space we need to clear our heads and find the answers we seek. It can be helpful for a time but being locked away will also keep the influence of others away. Everyone has different experiences and someone near us may know things about our situation that are helpful. We can reach out to those we trust and allow them to share their advice with us. A different perspective may open new options we hadn’t considered and those options may help us find our way forward more easily.

There is a grove of over 40,000 aspen trees growing in a forest that are not individual organisms but in essence all one tree. They share the same network of roots and each tree is a clone of the one next to it. In some ways, we are like that grove of trees. Although we are all individuals, as people we share a common ancestry and even though our desires are different our needs are the same. We can lean on each other in times of discomfort and enjoy each other’s company when things go well. Remembering and strengthening our connections to those around us will bring us comfort and confidence, and help us find new ways forward to success.

Today if you’ve set yourself apart and are facing a problem alone, remember the help available from those around you. Reach out for answers and let others in. We’re all cheering for your success. You’re a valuable member of the team and we’re glad you’re here. You deserve the very best of everything. Strengthen your connections to those around you and let them help you make your dreams come true.

 

Night and Day

12 Sep

We will all face hard days as we navigate through our lives. There may be dark nights that keep us awake with concern and worry as we face problems and difficulties that confuse or confound us. Life can be complicated and there will be times when all of us will face complex issues that make our lives worrisome. We may feel lost trying to overcome what lies before us. In the small hours of the night as we lie awake pondering our situation we may feel hopeless and overwhelmed. We may believe we will never find the answers and we will fall, unable to stand. But no night lasts forever and no matter how long the night may be, the day will rise and we will have another opportunity to begin again. Even if we can’t count on anything else, we can count on the sun rising again and the start of a new day. Each day brings with it new opportunities and interactions with others, and we will find the answers we seek. There is no problem too complex for us to unravel and no matter how arduous the journey, we will find our way through. If we feel lost, we can seek help from others. If we need advice, we can request it. Everyone has trouble from time to time and we can draw on the strength of others until we feel sure. Every answer we need is available to us and we will find the direction forward. We can be confident and trust in our ability to find our way with strength and courage. There is greatness within us and we can reach for it and rise.

It’s easier to manage problems when they come one at a time. We have the space to review them and take them apart to find the way forward. But sometimes an avalanche of trials may present all at once. It’s far more difficult when there are many things that need our attention and we are pulled in many directions to solve more than one issue. It may feel like there is too much to face and we may be overwhelmed. We can step back and look at the situation objectively and take it apart one piece at a time. We have all the wisdom and knowledge we need to solve any problem and there is nothing we can’t accomplish.

Sometimes we may get a lot of suggestions or advice about an issue we’re working on. If we want the help we may be grateful but there may be times when we need to do things our own way. We already know where we want to go and what we need to do. We have everything necessary to succeed and we can do it in ways that work best for us. We don’t have to do things the way others think we should. We can choose our own path and find the way forward. Success is always there for us and we will find it.

Today if you’re worried and concerned about a serious issue and don’t know how to move forward, step back and look at the situation objectively. The answers are already there for you. Be open to all the options available and you will find your way through. Every night ends and brings a new day. Be confident and trust in your wisdom. You have everything you need to succeed and you will win.
