Big Poke

11 Nov

Everyone has things they want to accomplish. When we’re ready, we make plans and get involved, and push forward with focus and attention toward the next destination. It’s good to be focused and moving toward our goals, but as we concentrate on the road ahead, we may miss some important cues along the way. Change is constant and sometimes our situation fluctuates and everything modifies but if all we can see is the next step forward, we may not even notice. If the change is drastic enough, it’s possible the goal we’re after is no longer there. If there are others moving forward with us, and they notice what’s happened they may poke us to make us look up. It’s helpful to have someone else looking around when we all we’re looking at is the road ahead. If we’re alerted to stop, and review our situation anew, we can determine if it’s time to revise our plans and move in a new direction. Life is filled with complications, modifications, unexpected twists and turns, and endless change. If we don’t take the time we need to notice them as they occur, we may find ourselves pushing toward something we no longer want, or that no longer exists. It’s pointless to waste our efforts to get somewhere that in the end isn’t where we want to go and won’t help us move forward. Every step we take moves us toward a destination. We can look up and ensure we’re still moving toward something we desire. Life is all about learning and every decision we make, and every step we take teaches us something new. We can take the knowledge we gain with each development forward with us to help us find success. We know what we want and by paying attention, and modifying our course when needed, we can reach any goal we desire.

If we’re in charge of steering a ship through the vast ocean, and want to go south, we can turn the ship and head that way. But if we fall asleep at the wheel, the ship will go wherever the water takes it, and when we wake, we may discover we are somewhere we never intended to go. As we pursue our goals, if we aren’t watching carefully and noticing the changes around us, we may end up with the same result. We are highly capable and can do anything we desire. We can ensure we’re headed where we want to go, and reach our chosen destinations.

If we’ve been pushing toward a goal, and working hard to reach it for a while, but we’ve changed, and it isn’t exactly what we want anymore, we can alter our direction. Everything we’ve done has given us new information and our lives are ours to design. We can change course at any time. Every dream we desire is possible and with determination and clear-eyed focus, we can make them ours.

Today if you’ve been pushing forward toward a goal but things have changed, stop and think about what you really want. You can go anywhere and do anything. Clarify what you want to accomplish and start again. Nothing is beyond your reach and you can find your way to any goal. Success is there for you and with determination and focus, you will reach it. All your dreams can come true, and you will make them yours.
