No Tolerance

3 Jun

Life is complicated and we’re often busy attending to meetings, chores, appointments, details and unexpected developments. We never know what will happen next, and sometimes things get in the way and disrupt our plans. We may be delayed due to circumstances out of our control, or have to change direction because of some unplanned detour. If we’re late and others are waiting, they may be annoyed and express that once we arrive. Some people have no tolerance for disruptions in their schedules or routine. They may fuss and fume when things go wrong, or their schedules have to change. It’s fine to have high expectations, but this is the real world, and we can’t predict anything. Things will go wrong, stuff will get in the way, and our plans may go up in smoke. Accepting that and learning to be flexible will help us find alternatives when the road turns and everything gets switched around. If we’re on a tight schedule and something waylays us, we may get frustrated and concerned, but by being patient and looking at the situation calmly and openly, we will find the best way to continue ahead. Lots of things may go wrong, and the plans we made may get completely turned around, but we are intelligent and can figure out any complication. By looking at every option available, and carefully choosing the best path, we can reach the destinations we desire. Success doesn’t always come the first time out, but by thinking clearly and being persistent, we can overcome any detour and find our way.

We all want the roads ahead to be clear and paved. It’s great when we can go from point A to point B without any roadblocks or problems. That will happen sometimes and we’ll sail on through, but there are always things going on around us we may be unaware of. Someone may make a decision that completely upends our plans, or something may develop we have no control over that stops us in our tracks. The schedules we set may be confounded and we may need to find a new way to get to the goal. It doesn’t matter what happens or what doesn’t work. We are perfectly capable of figuring out any problem and finding the solutions we need to succeed.

Some things need a lot of pre-planning and preparation. We can never see the end of the road from the beginning and there is no way to predict what might happen. If we’re open to making a change and altering our direction, we will more easily be able to manage disruptions and issues that may arise. There isn’t any goal that is unreachable and if things get jumbled up, we can trust that we will find our way to the destination.

Today if the road ahead is blocked and you’re stuck, look at all the options possible and choose the best way forward. Being delayed does not mean you will fail. Success is still there for you and with patience and clarity, you will find your way to it. Be calm, be confident and wise. Nothing can keep you from anything you desire. It’s all there for you and you will reach it.

Unavailable

18 Aug

Everyone has their own ideas about how they should live their lives. We all have goals and dreams we want to accomplish. Some of them are inconsequential and can be achieved easily with little effort. Others are crucial and their importance weighs heavily upon us. When there’s something we really want, something we feel we must have to be comfortable and happy, and we can’t get to it, our frustration may be intense. Everything is possible but not everything will be available all the time. We only have control over ourselves and may face a time when due to unforeseen circumstances, what we want is unavailable. Nothing we do will get us to it, and it remains out of reach. It’s very hard to accept defeat when we want something intensely. But if it’s not possible, and there is no way to get there, we will have to set our sights on something else, and wait. Change is constant and in time, however long it takes, whatever is in the way will move and the door will open for us. We can continue forward and keep our eyes focused on the road ahead. When things change, we can be ready to step up and seize the moment. Every goal is possible but they may not bend to our timeframe. We can be flexible and prepare for when our situation opens up, and start again. Nothing is too difficult for us to achieve, and with patience and perseverance we will prevail.

Waiting takes practice and patience. It’s hard to stand still when we want to move. But waiting gives us a chance to look at everything objectively. There may be a way around the obstacle in front of us we didn’t see when we were rushing forward. By looking carefully at every possible option, we may find the key that unlocks the road ahead. We are very intelligent and highly capable, and nothing can elude us indefinitely. We know what we want, and with clarity and confidence, can make it ours.

If we’ve waited a long time and still nothing has changed, and it seems the goal we desire is simply not available no matter what happens or what we do, we can decide how we want to proceed. Some plans may not work out and we may have to change our focus. That doesn’t mean we’ve failed, only that the idea won’t work at this time. It doesn’t mean it will never succeed. We can look at other things and continue to move forward, checking back from time to time to see where we are, and the possibilities ahead. Nothing is out of reach forever. Everything is possible and when the road opens, we can move toward success.

Today if you’re stuck and can’t move forward, decide on how you want to continue. You can work on other things and still keep the goal in focus. When things change, be ready to move and you’ll reach success. You are amazing and powerful, and nothing can keep you from anything you desire. Be confident and strong. Keep moving forward and every dream will be yours.

Another Chance

13 Jul

Everyone has things they want to accomplish, goals they want to reach, and places they want to visit. We all have an idea of what our perfect life would be like, and can do whatever is necessary to create it. Everything is possible and nothing is out of reach. Once we make a plan and begin forward, we hope the road will be clear and we’ll be able to get to the destination with few problems and complications, and sometimes that happens. But nobody is perfect and we all stumble from time to time. If we make a big mistake in judgment and end up going in the wrong direction, or make a choice that stops us cold or leads us to a dead end, we may think it’s over. We may believe we’ve screwed up so badly there is no way to succeed. When we fall down and our plans go up in smoke, we might think there is no way to continue and we’ve ruined all possibility of success, but that will never be true. We will never reach a point where there are no options left. There will always be another chance waiting in the wings. There are endless ways forward, and possibilities of prevailing. The answers may be hidden for a time, we might have to wait, or we may need to dig deep and search intently to find them, but there will always be another chance for success. The world won’t stop just because one road ends. We are intelligent and creative, and no matter what’s gone wrong, can figure out what to do next. We have millions of possibilities and unlimited times to try. We know what we want, and will find our way to success. Everything is possible, and with patience and courage, we will unlock all the answers needed to achieve anything we desire. The whole world is there for us, and we can make our dreams come true.

When we make a mistake and fall down, some may say we should give up. They may ask why we are putting ourselves through such a difficult task, and tell us to be happy with what we’ve got. We can take any advice we like, but our lives are ours to design and we can do anything. If we want something more, even if it’s very difficult to achieve, we can obtain it. Anything worth having is worth working hard for. Every single destination is possible and with determination and focus, we can make them ours.

If we want to achieve anything, the first step is believing we can succeed. If we let it, self-doubt may hold us in place and keep us from reaching our most desired goals. We are wiser and more capable than we think we are, and there isn’t anything we can’t do. By being confident, and stepping forward with clarity and conviction, we can move closer to any goal we desire. Everything is possible and nothing is off limits. We can have the lives we most desire, and reach every destination.

Today if your plans have fallen apart and the goal looks too far away, trust yourself. You know what you want and have everything you need to get it. Stand firm and step forward. Every destination is there for you and you will reach them all. Success is just ahead and it will be yours.

Another Way Around

28 May

We can achieve any goal we desire and go anywhere we like. All options are possible, and there are unlimited things we can do, and endless places we can visit. Nothing is out of reach or too difficult for us to achieve, but we may not succeed our first time out. Even if we’re clear on what we want and have a good plan in place to achieve it, there may be times when the road getting there gets twisted and tangled, and we get stuck going nowhere. When things aren’t working out, we may think we just need to try harder, put in more time, and push with more strength. Those ideas work sometimes, but we may face a situation that no matter what we do, we can’t proceed on the road we’re on. Our plans may be fine but for reasons we can’t explain, they simply aren’t working. We can put our shoulder to the wheel and press harder, but if the road is going nowhere, it will be wasted effort. If we’re working hard and still stuck in the same place, obviously there is a problem. Instead of doing the same things over and over and hoping for resolution, we can stop and look at everything objectively. There are many ways to get to every destination, and we have endless opportunities to try. Sometimes a small adjustment is all that’s needed to pave the way ahead. Other times we may need to rethink the whole plan and come up with an alternative. We can do anything, but not everything will come easily. Complications may snag our progress, and we may get stuck, but nothing is permanent. We are intelligent and capable, and will find the answers we need to reach success. By being open to every possibility, even those that look strange, we’ll be able to find a new way forward that opens all the doors ahead. Success will always be there for us, and with patience and clarity, we will find our way forward.

Nothing stays the same forever. Everything changes and modifies as time goes by. What worked for us last year may not work now. Even if our circumstances are pretty much the same, our options for success may be different. We can let go of what’s behind us, take what we’ve learned from everything we’ve done so far and use that knowledge to help us find the answers we need. Nothing is out of reach and we have everything necessary to find the way forward.

We share the world with billions of other people, all having different experiences. When we’re searching for answers, we can reach out to those around us for advice. The road ahead may be new and foreign to us, but chances are someone else has already traveled it successfully and will have information that will help us. We don’t have to do everything alone. By including others in our search and asking for help, we’ll gain information and guidance that will pave the way ahead and help us reach the goal.

Today if nothing you do moves you ahead, stop and look at all the options possible. There is another way forward that will take you to success. Trust your instincts and step forward with confidence. Nothing is too hard to accomplish or too far away to reach. You are wise and intelligent, and will find the answers you need. Every single goal is possible, and you will reach them all.

Chasing the Wind

24 Feb

When we’re children, we have ideas about how our lives will go and what we’ll do. We may dream of being fighter pilots, astronauts, ballerinas, super models and a million other things. Because we’re young and haven’t yet learned about how things work, our ideas may be unrealistic and completely different from what we choose after we get a little older and start to understand things a little better. We all have dreams about how we want our lives to go and what we want to accomplish. If we work hard and do what is necessary to make things happen, and the world around us cooperates, we can make many of our dreams reality. It’s wonderful when we accomplish something we really want, but life is unpredictable. Even if we do everything possible, some things may elude us. We aren’t alone on the earth and can only control what we do. Sometimes what other people are doing and the decisions they’re making may keep us from advancing toward a goal we desire. Like chasing the wind, some things may be continually out of reach. It doesn’t mean we aren’t trying hard enough or that the goal isn’t possible, but that it isn’t available to us right now. It’s difficult to set down something we want badly, but nothing stays the same forever. Instead of spinning our wheels and exhausting ourselves trying to achieve a goal that’s unattainable now, we can move on to something else. In time, the road will change and all the doors we need will open. Life is all about change. If we can’t continue forward on the road we’re on at this time, we can change direction and return later. We can accomplish anything we want, but we may not be able to accomplish it today. Life is long and we have all the patience and wisdom we need to keep our eyes on the goal and adjust our course accordingly. With focus and determination, everything is possible, and we will succeed.

There may be times when we want something completely different than where we are. Maybe we want a different career, or to move to another location far away. Big, life changing, dreams don’t come easily. Some take a lot of time, a lot of financial resources, and a lot of effort. If, after careful thought and consideration, we decide we definitely want to proceed, we can begin doing what is needed to get to the goal. There will probably be complications, and we may have to take a detour or two, but if we stay the course, we can prevail.

Some roads are harder than others and as we move ahead if there are endless problems and obstacles, and it’s difficult to make any headway, we may begin to rethink the goal. Our lives belong to us, and if we don’t want to continue the struggle, we can take a turn and go in a new direction. The goal will still be there and when our situation changes and we’re ready, we can begin again.

Today if you’ve been pushing hard trying to move closer to a goal and can’t get ahead, look at the situation objectively and decide how you want to proceed. You are intelligent and capable. Be confident and wise. Every success is possible, and with clarity and planning, you will find the way forward and reach the destination.
