Outcomes

22 Jun

We are always in control of our lives. We can do anything we like and go anywhere we choose. Every option is available and we can design our lives in ways that bring us satisfaction and happiness. We can’t control what the world brings us or what other people do, but our decisions are ours and we can choose how we’ll manage whatever comes and what we’ll do. Sometimes we may feel unsettled where we are and desire something different. Choosing a new road is always possible, but our lives will never change if we continue to do the same things. Change requires effort and it’s impossible to go anywhere new if we stay on the same road. If we want something different, we must do something different to get it. Routines are easy and comfortable. We can stick with the same behaviors and do the same things for as long as we want, but if we do, nothing will change. If we want something more, we will have to change what we’re doing to get it. Every decision has a result and if we’re not getting the outcomes we’re seeking, we can chart a new course. Some goals and destinations require little effort and we can achieve them easily, but others may be difficult and require a lot of planning and time. All goals are possible but they might not be possible right now. If we want to change something, but can’t do what is needed to achieve it at this time, we can set it aside until our situation changes and we can begin. Every single destination is possible. Nothing is out of reach, but big changes require determination and focus. We can have the lives we dream about but they aren’t going to just appear because we’re nice people, and desire them. Nobody gets a free ride. Everyone must work for what they want. We have everything we need to accomplish anything we desire. We need only decide what we desire most, and then do what is necessary to make it ours. All our dreams can come true and we can find complete happiness. It’s all up to us.

Everyone has their own ideas about how life should go and what we should do. Some people like a very small life where they don’t have to venture beyond what is known and comfortable. If we share our ideas with them about doing something new, they may feel uncomfortable because it’s not something they would do, and try to dissuade us. They may worry that a new situation for us may change our dynamic with them. We can listen to their objections and suggestions, but we don’t need approval to do anything we desire. Our lives belong to us and with focus and persistence, we can have the lives we dream of.

We may face a situation where we’ve been working hard to accomplish something, only to discover it isn’t what we want after all. It might seem we’ve wasted our time trying to reach a goal we don’t want, but every experience gives us something of value. We can never see the end of the road from the beginning, and as we near the destination, we may change our minds. Learning what doesn’t work isn’t wasted time. It’s valuable information that will help us as we move forward. We are intelligent and wise, and have everything we need to do anything we desire. Everything is possible, and we will win.

Today if you want something new but aren’t sure you can accomplish it, trust yourself. You are stronger and more capable than you imagine. Nothing can keep you from anything you desire. Be confident and step forward with determination and clarity. Every goal is possible and you will reach success.

Flawless

23 Mar

Life is a great experience, but it isn’t without pitfalls. There are always lots of options for every decision we make and although we may try hard to be perfect, we are only human. Everyone makes mistakes and nobody is perfect. There is no road map telling us which way to go, or guidebook advising us about what to avoid. We make our choices and learn as we go. If things fall apart, we learn what doesn’t work. If we do something that hurts us, we learn what to avoid. Every day we step a little closer to the person we want to be. Some people are very critical and may point out a time when we did something they find unacceptable. They may call us out or make us an example, choosing to highlight a bad decision we have already acknowledged and corrected. There is nothing to be gained by ridiculing others for making mistakes. Nobody is flawless, and we will all stumble from time to time. Falling or taking a wrong turn teaches us a lot about ourselves and the world around us. Holding someone continually accountable for previous errors in judgement serves nobody, and reminding others of their mistakes doesn’t make us better or superior. One thing is certain, none of us are flawless. We will all make errors in judgement from time to time, may choose the wrong road, take a wrong turn, or say something we regret. Those actions don’t permanently define us. We are always learning and growing, and can move forward with confidence, even though we’ve missed a turn or two. There is greatness in all of us, but if all we focus on is the missteps, it will be hard to recognize. Life isn’t always easy. By being aware of what we’re doing and choosing the best we can, we can move forward toward success and achieve it. The past can never predict the future. We are in control and can reach any goal we desire.

Some people are very judgmental and feel it is their responsibility to point out everyone’s shortcomings. Putting others down can never raise us up. Instead of focusing on the perceived shortcomings in others, we can look inward and choose our own road ahead. By honoring ourselves and those around us, we will gain more grace and gratitude for the blessings we possess and focus on the goals we want the most.

We may strive for perfection and try hard to always make the best decisions, but life is complex. Although we may do our best to choose wisely, there will always be a lot of factors we can’t control. Unexpected situations may arise, others may alter our direction, and our plans may go sideways. That doesn’t mean we’re incompetent or insufficient. We know what we want and have everything we need to achieve it. It may not work out the first time we try, or the second, or third, but with determination and clarity, we can continue forward until we reach success.

Today if you’re hesitating because of a mistake you made in the past, recognize how capable and strong you are. You know how you want to proceed and have everything you need to reach any goal. Be confident and trust yourself. You are more powerful than you realize and can accomplish anything. Every dream is possible, and you can have the life you desire most. Stand tall and step forward. Happiness is just ahead.

Free and Easy

27 Apr

There are unlimited possibilities in life. We can do anything we want to do and go anywhere we desire. With planning and effort, we can have the lives we want the most, but it takes work to determine what we really want and then accomplish what is necessary to make it ours. We can design our lives and find a way to achieve any goal we choose. But if we’re lazy or complacent, we may find that time goes by and nothing changes. We’re still in the same place, doing the same things and moving no closer to our personal goals. It’s easy to stay in a routine and simply take what comes to us free of thought or effort. The old saying, “You get what you pay for,” is accurate. We are in control of our choices and can design our futures with our personal desires and dreams in mind. We never have to settle for whatever comes. We create our own fate, and decide how our lives will go. We don’t have any choice over what comes to us, but we can choose how we’ll manage every development, and push through on the roads that take us where we want to go. Nothing is powerful enough to hold us in place but if we don’t take control of our decisions and move forward with purpose, we may end up standing in place indefinitely. If that’s what we want, it’s easy to accomplish. However, if we want to find great success, we have everything we need to achieve it. It’s up to us. Our lives can be fulfilling and rich, filled with experiences that bring us refreshment and deep happiness. We have everything we need to step forward toward any goal we desire, and succeed.

The unknown can be intimidating. We can’t read the future and there’s no way to know what will happen when we set out on a new road. We might face difficult challenges, there may be roadblocks that stop us in our tracks, or unknown difficulties that test our patience and stamina. Everything may go wrong and we might feel confused and lost, but we are intelligent and capable. We can manage any complication or problem and find the solutions we need to continue forward. Every destination is possible, and we can trust ourselves to find the way through.

It’s comfortable to stay in the same place, doing the same things. We know what to expect and there are few surprises. But routine is only repetition in action, and cannot offer us anything new. Every dream is possible and we have what we need to make them reality. We can step beyond where we are, and open new doors. There are endless opportunities and blessings waiting for us if we’re willing to move toward them and make them ours. Everything is possible. Nothing is too difficult or too far to reach. We really can have the lives we dream of. With determination and confidence, we can move toward the destinations we desire most, and realize great success.

Today if you’ve been limiting yourself to a routine, decide what you want to accomplish most. Your life is important and all your dreams are possible. Choose where you want to go and take the first step forward. You are incredibly capable and nothing is beyond your reach. Be confident and trust yourself. You already have everything you need to accomplish anything you desire. Every success is there for you, and you will prevail

Crystal Ball

4 Sep

We can do anything we like with our lives, and can make any decisions we desire. We don’t need agreement or permission to choose the paths we want to travel, or decide on any action. Some people like control and may try to turn us in one direction or another to achieve their personal ends, but we never have to take the bait. The future is ours to determine and we can create it any way we like. There are unlimited roads to every destination, and if we’re focused and determined, nothing is out of bounds. We don’t need a crystal ball to see the future and can choose the direction we’ll take at every moment. It’s great to understand our personal freedom, but life is filled with responsibilities and tasks that can hold us in and restrict our movement. Some things can be modified to fit within our parameters, but others require us to bend or wait. It’s hard to stand still when we want to be moving forward, but nothing can hold us in place forever. We can do everything we want to do, but we can’t do it all today. Learning to wait well takes practice and patience. Life is long and if we’re determined, nothing can keep us from any goal we desire. There isn’t a detour long enough or wide enough to keep us from success. Every dream is possible if we’re willing to do what it takes to make it ours. There are no secrets to having a happy, successful life. We can decide what we want, and then move forward and accomplish it. Nothing is out of reach. Nothing. It’s all possible and we can have the lives we dream about.

It might seem life would be easier if we could see into the future. If we knew what was going to happen, we could prepare for it before it arrived. The thing about life is we learn new things every day that help us understand the world more effectively and give us the skills to manage what’s coming next. If we knew what was headed our way before we were prepared to handle it, our lives would be in chaos. We don’t have to know what’s going to happen ahead of time in order to navigate it effectively. Every answer will always be there for us when we need it, and with patience and clarity, we will find them.

When we want to accomplish something, we may carefully consider how we’ll achieve it, allow for complications that may arise, and plan for each step of the journey. It’s great to have a plan but plans can’t predict every turn the road ahead may take or what may stand in our way. If we’re flexible and able to bend as issues arise, we’ll be able to continue moving forward and in time, reach the destination. Life is full of surprises and everything can change in a moment. We can alter our course when we need to and reach every goal. Success is always possible and we will reach it.

Today if your plans aren’t working out and you aren’t sure how to continue, all the answers are already there for you. Review every possible option and choose the road that will move you closer to your goal. You have everything you need to do anything you want. Nothing is too far away or too difficult for you. You are strong and capable, and have all the wisdom and insight you need to succeed. Be confident and trust yourself. Every destination is possible, and you will reach them.

Overcoming

10 May

“Difficulties are just things to overcome, after all.”   Ernest Shackleton

Life is filled with challenges and opportunities for us to grow and learn new skills. Much of our learning comes from facing difficulties and finding our way through them. Every day brings us something new and as we embrace each opportunity for change, we get closer to the people we most want to be. Nobody wants a life filled with hardship or trouble, but sometimes it seems that’s what we get. Thankfully, nothing lasts forever and as we untangle each problem, we are edified and enlightened. There are endless things to learn and each experience gives us another tool to use going forward. Overcoming difficult times teaches us more about ourselves and the world around us than an easy life could ever offer. The hard days bring us resolve and depth, and we learn how to manage stress and overcome doubt and fear. We often find that we learn the most when we’ve been through a serious trial. We never know what tomorrow will bring, but we can be confident that no matter what happens, we have all the courage and temerity we need to find our way. Even the strongest, most powerful storms cannot last forever. At the end of the tempest, the skies will clear, the sun will shine and we’ll find peace and comfort. There isn’t anything we can’t do and nothing is strong enough to overcome us. We can have faith in our ability to prevail, and trust ourselves to find all the answers we need. We are powerful and resilient, and can face anything that comes. Our lives will be embellished and as we move forward, we’ll find great satisfaction and happiness.

When we must face a complicated and difficult situation, we may be unsure. If it’s extreme and threatening, we may feel we are doomed and will never survive. But no matter how bad things are we can take our time to see them objectively and take them apart one step at a time. We don’t have to solve everything at once. We can find one answer after another until we reach the solution. Every answer is there for us and with patience and confidence, we will prevail.

Fear is something we all face from time to time. If we’re surprised and stopped in our tracks by events that have transpired unexpectedly, we may not be confident we can overcome. If we feel overwhelmed, it may be hard to think and process what we should do next. We can step back and stand still, and give ourselves a moment to look at where we are and what’s possible going forward. There will always be a solution to any problem we face, and if we stand firm and think clearly, we’ll find it.

Today if you’re facing a complicated and serious problem, and feel overwhelmed, remember how successful you’ve already been solving other issues. Trust yourself. You are wise and perfectly capable of managing anything before you. Stand strong and be confident. You will find every answer you need, and reach success.
