More to Come

12 May

We achieve a lot of personal goals as we go through our lives. When we’ve reached the end of a long journey, if it’s been hard, we may take a rest and sit for a while enjoying our success. It’s nice to get to a desired destination, but we are always changing and there is always something new that captures our attention. No matter where we are or how far we’ve moved forward, there will always be more to come. Options do not disappear simply because we’ve reached a goal. They will still be there and when we’re ready to reach for something new, we can begin on a new road. Life is all about learning. Everything we do teaches us something as we progress from one thing to another and get closer to the person we want to be. The possibilities are endless, and we are only constrained by the limits we put on ourselves. Our lives are ours to design. If we want a small life that’s easy and predictable, we can stay where we are and do the same things. We can limit our exposure to new ideas and destinations and be happy with what we have. But if we want to see what’s out there, and open every door we can, our world will be expansive and filled with new experiences and possibilities. It’s all up to us, but we must decide what we want. If we don’t take control of our lives, they will roll out according to where we are and what those around us are doing. One thing is certain – it’s impossible to get the lives we want the most by sitting still and doing nothing. It can be intimidating and unsettling to think about stepping onto a new road that is unfamiliar and foreign, but if we don’t take a chance on something new, we will remain where we are. Every destination is possible, and we can do anything. We can have the lives we dream of and reach great success.

There is nothing wrong with staying in place and keeping everything the same if that’s what we want to do. Everyone wants to be comfortable, but once we’ve mastered the situation we’re in and there is little left to be learned, our personal growth will slow, and we’ll lose the refreshment that new ideas and experiences bring. By making the most of our time, and reaching further for something new, we’ll be enriched, and our sphere of influence will expand. We have so much to offer and reaching for something new will bring us great blessings.

Everyone has their own ideas about life. Someone may have an idea about how we should live our lives and what we should do. We’re all entitled to our own opinions, but nobody knows what we want more than we do. We’re in control of our lives and don’t need agreement to do anything we desire. The sky is the limit and we’re in charge. By deciding what we want the most, and then doing what we must to make it ours, we will find great satisfaction and happiness.

Today if you’ve been standing still, enjoying your routine but want something more, look at all the possibilities around you. You can do anything and go anywhere. Choose the road you desire, and step forward. Everything is possible, and every destination is waiting. Be confident, and you will succeed.

Doomed

Life is filled with challenges and opportunities to learn through many different trials and difficulties. Nobody lives in nirvana, and we’ll all have times when we must face difficult situations that try us and push us to our limits. Many times, we’ll navigate them well and everything will resolve in ways that help us move forward. But we aren’t perfect, and we may get tangled up and make decisions that don’t work out for us, or take us down the wrong road. Mistakes are normal. We can’t know everything and there will be times when we’ll stumble and fall. Failure teaches us what doesn’t work, and helps us understand how to change direction and find the answers needed to reach success. Making a big mistake doesn’t mean we’re doomed to persistent and unmitigated failure moving forward. We aren’t stained for life and we don’t carry every mistake with us moving ahead. If we’ve made a bad choice, we can simply turn around and choose again. Our past will never determine our future. Everyone fails at some point. It’s inevitable. If we fall down, we can get back up and start again. There are unlimited possibilities and endless chances for success. No matter where we’ve been or what’s happened, each new day brings the opportunity to move in a new direction and reach our goals. If we’re not happy where we are, we can move. We never have to stay in any situation we don’t want, and can redirect our focus toward the things we desire most. Our lives are ours to design. Nothing is powerful enough to keep us from the destinations we desire most. If we stumble, and the road is uncertain, we can do what is needed to steady the way forward. Every possibility is there for us and the options available are unlimited. We can be confident and sure as we step forward that we will prevail and reach success.

We build different kinds of relationships with others each day. Some connections are positive and help us move ahead. Others may pull on us and hold us in place. If we’re deeply engaged with someone who prevents us from moving ahead, we may get stuck and unable to move. We are always in control of everything we do, and can change anything we desire. If a connection isn’t working, we can step back, look at all the options available, and go in another direction. We can do anything, and every success is possible.

Each experience teaches us something new to carry forward with us. If we must suffer through a difficult time filled with duress and strife, we will gain strength and deeper understanding as we find our way through. If we’ve made a bad decision, we can learn everything possible as we navigate the issue and find resolution. Learning all we can from each situation will enable us to acquire tools to help us in the future. We are smart and capable, and nothing can keep us from our goals.

Today if you’ve fallen down and made a mistake that is holding you back, decide how you want to proceed and step forward with confidence. Every destination is still there for you, and nothing can hold you in place. Be wise and confident, and step forward toward your goals. All your dreams are possible, and you will make them yours.
