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.

Breaking Through It

24 Mar

Our lives are often busy and we never know what we’ll face each day. Our plans may change, the road we’re on may get blocked, someone might step in the way, or any of a million complications may arise. There’s a lot going on much of the time, and if we’re concentrating on getting our chores, responsibilities, meetings and other commitments done, the time may fly by without notice. It’s hard to think about our personal goals when others are relying on us to take care of things, and we have a lot of distractions. We may have a job where we can set “office hours,” times when our door is open and others may interrupt us. It may be understood that outside of those defined periods, we are not to be bothered. It’s very convenient to be able to define when distractions may interfere, but in the real world, there are no such restrictions. Things happen, we get turned around or bumped off course, and it may be a long while before we can reset and start again. It’s important to take care of our needs and responsibilities, but our personal goals are also important. No matter where we are or what’s going on, we are always in control of our lives. We can manage our time in ways that allows us to get things done, but gives us time for ourselves. We can break through all the noise and activity, and find respite and contemplation. It doesn’t have to be a long time, but it needs to be dedicated to ourselves to ensure we’re moving toward what we desire most and are doing what we need to be happy. We can be loving and caring and give to others, but we are the most important person in our lives. If we’re not happy, nothing else is going to work. By making ourselves a priority and taking the time we need, we will find great peace and satisfaction. Every goal is possible, and with patience and clarity, we can have the lives we want the most.

Fear is a powerful emotion. If we let it, it may hold us in place and keep us from our dreams. How we think will often predict what will happen. If we want something but are afraid we can’t achieve it, it’s likely we will never succeed. Nobody knows everything and it can be intimidating to step onto a new road when we have no idea how it will go. But as the saying goes, “Fortune favors the bold,” and if we trust ourselves, and push ahead despite our uncertainty, odds are we’ll win. We have all the courage we need to do whatever we desire. We can break through any doubt, and find great success.

Routines and patterns may be deeply ingrained in our lives. If we’ve been doing the same things for a long time it may be daunting to think about changing things up. We know where we are, we know all the players and we know what to expect. But the whole world is there for us and limiting our experience simply out of habit will never take us where we most want to go. Every single dream is possible if we’re willing to do what is necessary to make it ours. We are stronger and more powerful than we imagine, and nothing is out of reach.

Today remember you are the most important person in your life and you deserve complete happiness. Take the time you need to think about what you want the most and make a plan to achieve it. There is greatness and power in you and nothing is out of reach. Dream big and step forward with confidence. You are amazing and every success is possible. Move ahead and they will all be yours.

Super Glue

3 Mar

There are endless opportunities and possibilities available to us as we navigate through our lives. We can do anything we like and go anywhere we want. The whole world is there for us and nothing is out of reach if we’re willing to do what is needed to make it ours. Life can be complicated and we might face a time when we’re in a situation we don’t like but feel compelled to stay. Our reasons may be varied and wide in scope. Maybe we’re staying in a job we hate because it’s a family business and there’s pressure to remain. Maybe we continue a personal relationship that isn’t working because there’s history and we’re afraid of what will happen if we leave. It may seem that what we know, even if we’re not happy, is better than the unknown before us. We can do anything we like and can stay where we are for as long as we choose, but the chances of things improving on their own are slim. Bad, uncomfortable, and undesirable situations will not morph into something wonderful just because we want them to. Our lives belong to us and we’re in control of them. There is no way to escape the fact that in the end we chose the lives we want the most. We own every choice we make, even if that choice is to do nothing. We are important and our happiness is our own responsibility. If we don’t feel fulfilled and content where we are, if our connections aren’t making us happy and if what we’re doing isn’t moving us forward, we can change. We are the only ones who can hold us in place indefinitely. Every option we dream of, every destination we think about, is possible. By deciding what we want the most, and then taking the first step forward, we can move toward the goals we desire and have the lives we dream of. Nothing is too difficult or too complex for us to manage. Every blessing is possible, and with focus and determination, we will succeed.

Super Glue is a great product when we want something to stick and not move. There may be times when we feel like we’re stuck in a situation we don’t want, but we feel unable to move. We may think we’re stuck forever, but that will never be true. We are never Super Glued in place. There will always be other options around us, and every chance to improve. We don’t have to keep our heads down and endure anything when we’re ready to move on. Countless roads await and unlimited options are possible. We already possess everything we need to do anything we like. By trusting ourselves and stepping forward, confident of success, we will prevail.

Some people are comfortable with conformity. They like everything to stay the same, and prefer routine and repetition over trying new things. It’s comfortable to do same things over and over again, knowing what to expect, but that will never move us forward. We all have great potential for success, but potential means nothing without effort. When we’re ready to start toward something new or change aspects of our lives, we can look at everything possible and choose the best road ahead. We are stronger, wiser and more powerful than we think we are, and nothing is beyond our reach.

Today if you want to change your personal situation but have been afraid to step forward, trust yourself. You are strong and capable, and can do anything you desire. Decide what you want the most, and take the first step forward. Then take the next, and soon you’ll be exactly where you want to be. Every single destination is possible and nothing can keep you from success. Stand strong and be confident. The whole world is there for you, and you will prevail.

Driving the Train

17 Feb

When we want to take a trip on a train, we can buy the ticket and get onboard. Then all we have to do is sit and wait while someone else drives us to our intended location. We can read, look out the window, or take a nap, oblivious to the tracks outside or what is necessary to keep the train moving forward. When we reach the destination, we can step off the platform and do whatever we like, leaving the journey behind us. As we navigate our lives, we can make any choices we like. We can decide what we want and then do what is necessary to make it ours, or we can simply let someone else drive the train, and end up wherever it goes. Letting others decide where we’ll go and what we’ll do is easy. We can just sit quietly and go along with whatever is happening around us. Sometimes we may even actually end up somewhere we wanted to go, but letting others control our lives will rarely bring us true happiness. Everyone has their own dreams and ideas about what they want to do and where they want to go. Sitting back and following along might be easier and may prevent conflict, but leaving our destinations up to others will never bring satisfaction. We know what we want and have everything needed to achieve it. By taking control of our own journey, choosing the destination, and moving forward with focus and clarity, we can accomplish anything we desire. All our dreams are possible, but we must decide to drive the train ourselves. We are smart enough and have all the courage necessary to do anything we desire. By trusting ourselves, and stepping forward with our eyes focused on the road ahead, we can make our dreams come true.

Some people are very loud and domineering. They may think they know what’s best for us and try to direct us toward the destinations they have chosen. We can listen to any advice or direction we’re given, but nobody knows us better than we know ourselves. We don’t have to explain our choices or ask for approval. Our lives are ours to design and we can do anything, and go anywhere we like. Every destination is there for us and we can make them ours.

Some plans don’t work out. If the road we’ve chosen stops, we may get stuck unable to move. Getting stopped along the way does not mean we cannot achieve the goal. There will always be another way forward, and we have everything we need to find it and continue on. We are intelligent and capable, and when we’re ready, nothing can keep us from success.

Today if you’ve been going along and sitting still, think about what you want the most. Be fearless and trust yourself. You already have everything you need to reach any goal you desire. Stand strong and step forward. The whole world is there for you and every destination awaits. Decide how you want to proceed, and begin the journey. There is great success just ahead and you will reach it.

End of the Rope

26 Jan

Everyone wants an easy life where things go well, the sun always shines, nothing ever gets in the way, and we’re all wealthy. It’s a nice dream but unfortunately we don’t live in fantasy land, we live in the real world. There will be times when everything sails along nicely and we’re comfortable just cruising on through, but those times cannot last forever. Eventually things will change, the road will turn, something will fall apart, and we’ll be faced with problems and issues that try our sanity and patience. Although we’re all capable of facing whatever comes, there may be times when there’s so much going wrong and we’re so overwhelmed we begin to feel like we can’t take anymore. We’re at the end of our rope, and are sure that if anything else bad happens we’re going to completely fall apart and die. Of course, even if our worst fears are realized and our whole lives are turned upside down we probably won’t die. We may suffer desperate pains of loss or disappointment, we may find it hard to process what’s happening, and we may lose our way for a time. But we are stronger and more capable than we imagine, and no matter how bad the situation seems, can find our way through. Nothing lasts forever, and change is constant. Whatever is happening now is going to change, but when that happens is anybody’s guess. We can stop, set our emotions aside for a moment, and look at everything objectively. There is always a way forward, and with focus and determination, we will prevail. Life can be hard, and unexpected things will happen, but we are powerful and wise, and can always reach success.

Sometimes it can seem like we can’t win. Everything is working against us and nothing we try helps. Perhaps the timing for what we’re trying to do isn’t right, maybe someone is standing in our way and refuses to move, or issues have arisen that make our forward progress impossible. Getting stuck doesn’t mean the goal is unreachable. Every goal is possible but they aren’t all possible today. If we can’t move forward, we can turn in another direction and work on something else. As time passes our situation will change, and we will be able to return and start again.

We only have control over our own decisions. Trying again and again to open a locked door will not move us forward. There are many roads to every destination, and if the one we’re on stops or gets blocked, we don’t have to stand and wait for it to change. We can try a different approach and go a different way. We are intelligent and there is no problem too tangled for us to unravel. Every destination is there for us, and we will reach them all.

Today if nothing is working and you feel frustrated and overwhelmed, remember all the times you’ve been successful. You are wiser and more capable than you think you are. Every blessing is there for you. Be patient and trust yourself. You know what you want and have everything you need to get it. Stand strong and step forward with confidence. There is great success ahead and it will be yours.
