Being the Creator

12 Jul

Life rolls out one day at a time, and most of us cannot see the future before it unfolds.  There is no way to know what will happen next, what will come, or how things will develop until they do. What’s on the other side of the door isn’t visible until we reach out and open it to see what’s there.  Although we can’t predict the days ahead, there are some things we can be sure of. There is an old saying, “If you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always gotten.”  It’s a true axiom. It’s impossible to expect change if we keep doing the same things over and over. If we want to make more money but refuse to leave the job we’re in or do what is needed to move ahead, the money will elude us. If we want to be more fit but don’t exercise or change our activity levels, nothing will change. If we want more excitement in our lives, but continue to follow the same patterns and go to the same places, our lives will remain the same. In those ways, we can accurately and precisely predict the future. When we keep everything the same, we create a future very much like the present we’re living. Our lives are ours to design and we can do anything we desire, but we must be willing to do what is needed to achieve the changes we want the most. Standing around, daydreaming and hoping something will happen that will transform everything into what we want will do nothing. We are smart and powerful, and when we’re ready, every dream awaits. Every possibility is there for us, and with focus and determination, nothing is out of reach. We can create the lives we want the most, and find complete happiness.  

Nobody gets a perfect life where everything goes exactly the way they wish, and there are no trials or hardships. Things will go wrong, people will disappoint, plans will fall apart, and we will have to find our way through. Trouble comes to us all, but there are no problems without solutions. No matter what is in the way, or how the road turns, if we are determined to reach the goal we will find the way forward. The answers will always be there for us but we must be willing to search for them and then implement them once we find them. Few things come without effort, but no matter what is required, we have all the courage and strength we need to push forward. No destination is too far away or too difficult for us to manage, and with clarity and patience we will prevail.

It takes courage to change our lives. Staying in the same place, and doing the same things is easy and comfortable. If we want something more, we can look at all the options possible and make a plan to move toward the goals we most desire. We can go anywhere and do anything, and we never need permission or agreement of those around us to achieve what we want the most. There is great success just ahead, and every goal is possible. By trusting ourselves, and stepping out of our comfort zones, and reaching further for what we want, we will succeed.

Today if you want to change your life, and do something different, think about what you want the most and make a plan. Be confident and take the first step forward. There isn’t anything you can’t do. Trust yourself and move toward the goals you most desire. Every destination awaits and nothing can keep you from success.  You are amazing and highly capable, and nothing is out of reach. Every dream is waiting, and you will make them yours.

Instant Success

9 Jun

Everyone has dreams and goals they want to pursue and achieve. There are endless things to do and places to go, and we all have our own ideas about how we want to proceed. When we want something badly, we want it right away. We don’t want to wait, we don’t want to work hard for it, and we don’t want anyone to stand in our way. We might wish we had a magic wand that could make it happen, or our own genie ready to grant us the wish of our hearts so we could just get it and be happy. There are some things we can do quickly, but success doesn’t happen instantly. It’s not like a packet of soup that just requires water to become a meal. Most things worth having take work and time to achieve. Wishing and hoping and dreaming about how it will be once we get there won’t make anything change. The road to success will always be open but if we want to reach it we have to take the journey all the way to the end. There will likely be unforeseen complications, someone might block us, and problems may creep up, but it we’re determined and continue pushing forward we will win. Nothing is impossible if we’re willing to do what is needed to make it ours. Success is always there for us, and if we persist and don’t quit nothing can keep us from it. We are stronger and more capable than we think we are, and there isn’t anything we can’t do.

Playing the “if only” game will never help us move forward. “If only” I had a better job I would have more money and security. “If only” I was married I wouldn’t be so lonely. “If only” it wasn’t so hard I could be more successful. Life is full of possibilities, but nobody is going to pave the road ahead for us or hand us a perfect life. If we’re not happy where we are, instead of complaining and wishing something would change, we can take control and move in a new direction. We are never frozen in place unless we freeze ourselves there. Life is filled with opportunities and every option is possible.

There is no way to move forward by standing still. Watching and waiting for change to come is a fool’s game. We’re in control of our lives and can do anything at any time. We are filled with potential but potential is unrealized expectations. Instead of standing around and waiting for things to change, we can purposely and with clarity move toward the goals we want the most and reach any success we desire. It’s all there for us. We need only decide what we want, and then do what is necessary to make it ours. There is greatness inside us all, and with patience and determination, we can do anything.

Today if there’s a goal you want to achieve, think about how you want to proceed, and take the first step forward. You know what you want and have everything you need to do anything you desire. Trust yourself and push ahead. Every dream is possible and every success awaits. Be confident and you will make them yours.

Aspiring For Greatness

3 Jan

The world is full of opportunities. There are limitless things we can do and endless places we could go. If we wanted to, we could do something new every single day, and still never reach the end of what is possible. Although we may understand this, it’s easy to get stuck in a rut doing the same things every day. We need to provide for ourselves and for most of us, that means working a job. Most jobs aren’t worldwide endeavors that allow for endless travel and constant new experiences. Generally, we must report to the same place and do basically the same things each day. It’s easy to keep our lives small and simply continue on the same road without looking up. Being responsible and providing for our own needs is important but that doesn’t mean we can’t express ourselves and still do things that expand our horizons and allow us to aspire to greatness. Every situation is different, but no matter where we are or what we’re doing, we can choose to be the very best we can be and extend ourselves in ways that positively impact our lives. Instead of doing the minimum requirement to continue forward, we can peel back the layers a bit, get involved more deeply and really make an impact. Mediocrity is easy to achieve. We don’t have to work hard or do too much, and can simply do the minimum required to stay in place. But there is greatness in all of us and when we choose our very best options, we’ll find enormous growth and incredible fulfillment. Our lives are ours to design. By extending ourselves, and reaching further, we can reach goals we never dreamed possible. With focus and determination, every destination is attainable and we will achieve great success.

Everyone has their own ideas about how things should be done. Others may tell us what they think we should do, where we should go, and how we should act. We’re all entitled to our own opinions, but nobody knows us better than we know ourselves. We don’t have to do things a certain way simply because they’ve always been done that way. If we want something different, we don’t need to conform. We are intelligent and highly capable and can make any choice we desire. The lives we want the most are possible, and with focus and clarity, we will have them.

It’s comfortable to stay in the same place doing the same things. We know the players and pretty much what to expect. Repetition is easy but will never make our dreams come true. It can be intimidating to move into foreign territory and do something new, but we have all the courage and wisdom we need to overcome anything. New doors with limitless possibilities are waiting. We can step forward with confidence, aspire for greatness and find incredible success.

Today if you are ready to try something new, decide what you want the most and take the first step. You already possess everything you need to do anything you desire. The whole world is there for you and nothing can hold you in place. Recognize your strength, and be confident. Every success is there for you and you will prevail.

Frozen In Place

18 Nov

We all have things we want to accomplish and can work toward any goal we desire. We can do anything we like but there may be times when what we want to do depends on something changing or someone else showing up. We only have control over our own decisions, and cannot read the future. Although there is no way to know when things will change, we may choose to stand still while we wait for everything to fall into place. We want to be ready and don’t want to be distracted when the door finally opens. It’s good to be prepared for what we want, but standing still will never make anything happen. The world will continue to move on, and everything around us will continue to change. If we stay frozen in place, watching and waiting, we may miss important and worthwhile opportunities. Once a day passes, it can never be recaptured, and the time that has gone by is lost forever. We can wait for whatever we like, but while we wait, we can continue moving toward our own personal goals. There is no need to put our lives on hold for anything. There will always be another goal to focus on and another road ahead. By focusing on what we want the most, and moving forward with determination and focus, we will reach great success.

We are in control of our own destiny. If we want something, it’s up to us to make it ours. Others may not agree with the goals we set, and may tell us they are too hard to achieve and we should stay where we are and be happy with what we’ve got. We can certainly take their suggestions to heart, but our lives belong to us. We can decide what we want, and where we’ll go, and never need agreement or permission to do anything we desire.

Change is constant in our lives, and nothing stays the same indefinitely. No matter what we choose to do, life around us will continue forward. Standing still and waiting for someone to show up, or for a situation to morph into something that works for us will not hold anything in place. People will move on, and we may lose valuable connections. We can continue toward the destinations we desire most while we wait, and find great joy and satisfaction in success.

Today if you’re waiting and have been frozen in place, remember how valuable you are. Decide what you want the most, and step forward toward the goal. The future is there for you, and there is no need to delay any success. You are strong and powerful, and everything is possible. Look ahead and be confident. Every destination awaits, and you will reach them all.

Doomed

16 Sep

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.
