Holding It In

28 May

Everyone is different and we all have our own opinions about how things should go and what we should do. There are endless ideas about everything that happens and those differences bring great depth to our experience and help us understand the world. But differences can also cause conflict, especially if someone believes they have the right answers and refuses to listen to any other option. If we must work with them and have a different idea for moving forward, we may struggle to express our viewpoint. Conflict is a normal part of life and can be challenging. If we remain silent, things may be easier, but keeping our ideas to ourselves prevents others from hearing another option. We are important and our contributions are valuable. We can be confident in speaking up and offering new ideas and different methods to accomplish any goal. We are capable and intelligent, and offer a unique perspective that can augment and enrich the way ahead. Every idea has worth, and being open and sharing our impressions and thoughts will bring refreshment and a new point of view that may unlock new doors. There is no way to know what suggestion will turn the tide and pave the way ahead. If we keep our thoughts to ourselves, they will never have the chance to bring us success. We are more powerful and wise than we think we are, and nothing can hold us in place. We can openly contribute to every situation and fearlessly explain our point of view. There is great success ahead, and by sharing our ideas and thoughts with those around us, we will reach every destination we desire.

Some people are very confident, outspoken and strong willed. They know what they want, and don’t hesitate to tell others their opinions, and push their way to the front of the line. If we aren’t as confident and are interacting with them, we may feel intimidated by their behavior. If we have a different opinion about how to proceed, instead of sharing, we may hold our ideas in and keep them to ourselves. Nobody can read our minds and it’s impossible for anyone to know where we stand unless we tell them. Nobody has all the answers. We all have something to offer. By trusting ourselves and speaking up, we can contribute to everyone’s success.

There is always a risk when we share our own ideas that those around us won’t agree, and we’ll be left standing alone with no support. That may happen, but it doesn’t mean our ideas are worthless. It only means they are different than what is needed right now. It’s impossible to know what the future holds, and a proposed course that doesn’t work right now may be perfect for something coming up. There is no down side to offering and hearing alternate opinions and new suggestions. They open us up to original concepts and different roads ahead.

Today if you’ve been unsure about sharing your own ideas, speak up and let others know where you stand. You are amazing and capable, and every idea has value. Be confident and trust yourself. Share your thoughts about how to proceed, and let others know where you stand. The whole world is there for you, and nothing can keep you from your goals. Every success is possible, and you will prevail.

Changing Location

24 Apr

There are endless places to go in the world, and unlimited things to see. We can choose any destination and then do what is needed to get there. All options are possible but we won’t go anywhere until we decide to move. We are where we are, and if we don’t like a particular location, we don’t have to stay there. Our lives belong to us and we have control over every decision we make. If we’re unhappy or feel unfulfilled, it’s up to us to do what is needed to change. We never have to continue to tolerate a situation simply because that’s where we are. We are strong and powerful, and nothing can hold us in place against our will, but we must decide if we’re ready to move. Change won’t just happen because we’re thinking about it. Even if we’re unhappy, life won’t simply provide something new for us. We can move or we can stay in the same situation indefinitely. Going someplace new requires effort and there are no guarantees things will work out the way we want them to. The road ahead may be easy and we might get to a new location quickly and with few problems, or it might be hard with lots of complications and twists and turns. There is no way to know in advance how hard it will be and if that’s enough to keep us in place, we can stay where we are. But if we want something different, and are ready to do what is necessary to change our situation, nothing is out of reach and the whole world is possible. We can change anything in our lives, and reach every goal ahead.

It’s very uncomfortable to hear someone continually complain about their situation or where they are in life, and do nothing to change it. We will all face times when we end up somewhere we don’t want to be. Getting there is not the end of the road or the end of the journey. We may have to wait until our situation allows us to move, but as soon as the opportunity arises, we can step away and advance toward the destinations we desire. Life is fluid and nothing is permanent. It may take planning, and we may have to work to achieve the changes we desire, but everything is possible, and we can have the lives we want the most.

Nobody can read the future, and we never know what tomorrow will bring. However, one thing is certain – if we do nothing it’s unlikely our lives will dramatically change. Standing around complaining about our lot in life may bring us temporary relief from an uncomfortable situation, but will do nothing to make things better. Our lives are an incredible blessing. We can decide what we want and then do what is needed to get there. All destinations are possible and nothing is too far to achieve. We are strong and capable, and can do anything we desire.

Today if you’re frustrated with where you are and want a change but have been unsure about moving forward, trust yourself. You are intelligent and wise, and nothing is too hard for you. Decide what you want and where you want to go. Every destination and goal are possible. You are amazing and have everything you need to get the life you want. Step forward with clarity and confidence. Every blessing is already there for you, and you will have them.

Big Swing

24 Jul

Life is filled with opportunity and there really are no limits to what we can accomplish if we set our minds to the goal and do what is needed to make it ours. The world is filled with things to do and places to see, and we can move forward toward any goal we desire. Taking a big swing and pushing toward something new can be intimidating and we might hesitate, unsure of our ability to succeed. Our lives will always be a reflection of the choices we make, and if we want a small, simple existence, it’s easy to accomplish. We can stay in our seats, and watch the world go by, safe and secure in our place, where everything remains the same. But if we stand still and stay within our comfort zones, we will never know what we could do or where we could go. Nothing is really beyond our reach and if we want to, we can make our dreams come true. Swinging for the fences takes courage and strength. We may be doubtful at first but we have everything we need to do anything we want. We can reach further, press harder, and push ourselves toward new, and higher goals. We have nothing to lose. If we fall down, we can get back up. If one road fails, we can try another. Every possibility is there and we can fill our lives with rich and varied experiences that will give us great satisfaction and bring us complete happiness. We deserve every benefit in life, and they’re all there for us. We’re stronger and more capable than we may realize and can do anything we desire. Nothing is too far away or too difficult to reach. We can be confident of our success, and step forward with determination and clarity. Everything is possible. We can do anything we desire and have the lives we dream about.

Nobody knows us better than we know ourselves. People are filled with their own opinions about how life should go and may tell us what they think we should be doing. They may share their views with us, but those views don’t need to become ours. We know what we want and where we want to go. It doesn’t matter if others agree or come along. We can chart our own course and achieve any goal we desire. Our lives belong to us and we can design them any way we choose. We can make our own decisions and have the lives we want the most.

Perfection may be our goal, but it will rarely be our achievement. If we expect things to go perfectly simply because we desire them, odds are we’ll be disappointed. There are a lot of things going on all the time, and endless complications can arise. It doesn’t matter what gets in our way, we have everything we need to adjust our trajectory and continue moving forward. Every goal is possible. Every single one. We can have the lives we dream about, and find complete happiness.

Today if you’re thinking about a big goal but aren’t sure you can achieve it, step forward and start anyway. Nothing is too complex or difficult for you to overcome. You are strong and wise, and more powerful than you may realize. Be confident and take a big swing. You can do anything. Success is there and you will reach it.

Upside Down

20 Mar

Nobody can predict the future and we never know what will happen next. There are a lot of surprises in life. Some of them are fun and exciting, but others may knock the wind out of us and leave us stunned and confused. A sudden breakup of a close relationship, an unforeseen accident, an unexpected death, or many other surprises may shake us and make us feel unsettled and upside down. The winds of change may rush upon us and when the road abruptly turns and we are suddenly going in a completely different direction without a plan or any idea of what to do next, we may feel lost and unsure. Everything we counted on may disappear. Everything we thought was solid, may evaporate into thin air. Life is filled with changes and when they come unplanned and unexpected, we may lose our footing for a moment while we try to grasp the situation. We have succeeded at many things and no matter what happens, have all the wisdom and knowledge we need to find our way forward. When things suddenly change, we can take the time we need to stand still, catch our breath, and see all the options possible for moving forward. There will always be a road ahead and nothing can hold us in place indefinitely. Even if the whole world changed, we could still find our way. We can choose on our next steps forward and then begin again. Our goals will still be there for us, and with patience and determination, we’ll reach them. Things may go wrong, and the road we were on may be blocked, but there are countless roads possible. We’re intelligent and capable, and nothing can keep us from our dreams.

Every decision we make takes us somewhere. If we’re careful, oftentimes we can see where we’re headed and plan accordingly. But sometimes we don’t have all the facts and may choose something that takes us completely off the rails. Everything may blow up in our faces leaving us trying to figure out what happened. We may need time to process where we are and figure out what to do next. Things can go wrong and when they do, we can find our way. There isn’t anything too complex or difficult for us to manage. We can take the first step forward and then the next, and soon we’ll be on the road that takes us to our goal.

Falling down is a natural part of life. We might stumble or completely take a dive. The fall isn’t the important thing – what matters is what we do next. If we let the situation hold us down and don’t try to get back up, our lives will be paralyzed and frozen in time. We can manage anything that comes and if we’re down, we have the courage to stand again. We are strong and capable, and nothing is powerful enough to keep us from success.

Today if the road you’ve been on has suddenly turned and you’re unsure of your next move, think about what you want. Even the most difficult situation has a solution. You know where you want to go and have everything you need to get there. Stand strong. You are wise and nothing can hold you down. Success is always there for you and you will reach it.

The Neutral Zone

6 Jul

There will be few times in our lives when we’ll get where we want to go serendipitously or by accident. Generally, if we want something to happen we’ll have to work for it. Pushing forward toward any goal is the best way to ensure we get there but there may be times when we have to wait. There may be others standing in our way we cannot move. There may be situations that take our attention away from the road forward or unforeseen complications that must be resolved before we can proceed. Waiting is like idling in neutral. The engine is still running but until the gears change we can’t proceed. If we must wait a long time we may give up on the goal and decide to take another path. We can always change our direction at any time but if the goal is something we truly want we can be patient and remain in place until things change. We don’t have to give up on any goal we value. It may feel we have no control as we wait but even when standing still we are in command of our lives. Life changes constantly and in time our situation will modify and we’ll be able to proceed forward again. While we wait we can be prepared and ready for that eventuality and spring into action as soon as we are able. The opportunity to move forward will always come again.

Life is all about choices. We can do anything we want and go anywhere we want to go. We don’t need the agreement of others and we may define our lives in our own personal ways. If we lack confidence or are unsure we may stand still and let others decide what we will do. If we don’t control our lives, others will control them for us and the destinations they choose may not be the ones we want. We are the only ones with personal inspiration regarding what is best for us. Even those who know us very well will never know us completely. We have everything we need to go where we really want to go. Shifting out of neutral and determining to define things according to our personal desires will help us achieve the lives we want the most.

The neutral zone is an easy place to live. We don’t have to make decisions, we don’t have think about the future and we don’t have to work hard to continue forward. When a car is in neutral very little fuel is needed to keep it running. It doesn’t take much energy to stand still. When we let life determine our path forward we give up the opportunity to design our lives and achieve what we truly desire. We deserve every happiness. Every dream can come true if we purposely move forward toward it and do what is needed to find success. We can go anywhere and do anything but first we have to gear up and begin.

Today if you’ve been waiting for something to happen to change your life, take control and start to move. Begin the journey you’ve been dreaming about. There isn’t anything you can’t do. You are more powerful than you imagine and you can accomplish anything you desire. Step forward. Your destination is just ahead and nothing will keep you from success.
