Resolved

17 Jun

There are a lot of things that happen to us as we go through our days. Life is complicated and there is no way to know everything about everything all the time. There are billions of other people sharing the planet and each is making decisions we may know nothing about. Those choices may impact our lives in ways we could never predict and tangle the way ahead. Problems will come, issues will arise and the road forward may be completely blocked. When things go awry we can ignore what’s happening and try to keep pushing through and that might work. But if it doesn’t, we can stop and look at everything objectively and determine how we want to proceed. By examining each situation openly and patiently we will come to understand it more completely and determine what we need to do to get around the problem and continue on. Examination leads to understanding which then leads to resolution. Ignoring problems or refusing to look at them will never move us ahead. It’s pointless to keep banging on a door that will not open. All the answers we need to succeed will always be available, and when we take the time necessary to find and apply them, the road ahead will open and we will be able to proceed with confidence and clarity. Every success is possible and nothing is out of reach if we’re willing to do what is needed to make them ours. We are wise and capable, and nothing is too difficult for us to manage.

Some journeys are very long and hard. Big goals often take a lot of planning and time to accomplish. If the road has been difficult and filled with complications, and we are only able to make small advances we may become discouraged. After a long time of trying and working hard to move the needle, if we still are nowhere near the goal, we may begin to believe we cannot succeed. Our hope may start to wane and we may start thinking about giving up. If the goal is important to us, it doesn’t matter how long it takes to reach it. Each step forward takes us closer to the prize, and if we journey on no matter what, we will prevail.

Some people think they know more about what’s good for us than we do. They may tell us to let go of something we want because it’s too difficult and there is no way we will succeed. They have their own opinions but we know who we are and what we want. When problems come, we can do what is needed to understand the situation clearly and find the answers we need. We are intelligent and stronger than we imagine. Every single dream is possible and with wisdom and patience, we will make them ours.

Today if you’re overwhelmed by a situation, take the time you need to examine it clearly and gain understanding. Listen carefully and the answers will come. There isn’t anything you can’t do and no problem you can’t solve. You are amazing and already possess everything you need to reach success. Everything is there for you. Every dream is waiting. Be confident and step forward, and make them yours.

Freeze Frame

18 Feb

Everyone experiences many successes and things that go well. When our plans work out and the road ahead is clear and open, we feel happy and content, and sure we’ll arrive at the destinations we’ve chosen. But not every experience is good, and we’ll all suffer through disappointment and failure from time to time. Nobody is perfect and there is no way to get everything right every time. If we’ve gone through a big defeat that has impacted us greatly, we may feel the pain of loss for a long time. If we really missed the mark and the setback is intense, we might believe we’re doomed to fail going forward. We may struggle with self confidence and wonder if we’ll ever do anything well again. Life is continual and change is constant. Although our memories may hold everything frozen in time, nothing is permanent. Our past experiences teach us important lessons, and if we’ve fallen down, those lessons may be painful and difficult. It may be hard to believe we’ll ever be successful again, but the past is behind us and cannot predict the future. We aren’t forever cursed with failure just because of a bad experience. By learning all we can from what’s already happened, we can take great knowledge forward to help us moving ahead. We learn as we go, and each experience has something of value. We are wiser than we think we are, and can do amazing things. There is greatness in us all, and with patience and determination, every goal is possible.

If we’re out walking, and slip and fall, we don’t stay down and bemoan our situation. We get back up, brush ourselves off and continue on. If we go through a terrible mistake, and everything falls apart, we might stumble and fall. But we don’t have to stay down. We can look at everything that’s happened objectively, think about how we want to proceed, and then stand back up and start forward. There are unlimited destinations before us, and we have what we need to find the way ahead and reach success.

Everyone goes through hard times. We might face a time when no matter what we do, nothing works out. Every decision seems doomed to failure, and we may feel lost and confused. When we’re unsure about how to proceed, we can stop and stand still for a time, look at all the options possible, and then choose our next steps. The road may get twisted around and we might get tangled up, but we are intelligent and will find all the answers we need to move toward success.

Today if you’re unsure and doubting yourself, remember all the times you’ve already overcome difficulty and succeeded. You are strong and powerful, and have everything you need to do anything you desire. Decide what you want the most, and step forward with confidence. Every success is already there, waiting for you. Move forward and make it yours.

Digging In

3 Jun

Everyday we face new challenges and make choices about how we’ll proceed. Life is filled with all kinds of experiences, and since we don’t live on a deserted island, there will be others around who may influence us one way or another. We may get all kinds of advice and suggestions, which may be helpful or might be misleading. If someone near us is very powerful and strong willed, they may demand that we follow their suggestions for moving forward. Some people are very smart and confident and may be sure they are steering us in the best direction, and maybe they’re right. Of course, we can listen to any advice we’re given, but nobody knows us better than we know ourselves. Nobody will have our personal insight regarding what we want and how we want to proceed. Taking someone else’s suggestion might be great, or it might not. There will be no way to find out unless we implement whatever they have suggested and try it out. If we follow someone else’s lead, and things go well, terrific. If everything goes bust and we end up in a terrible situation, we may be tempted to blame them for our demise, but we own every decision we make. We choose the roads we’ll travel. We own them whether they bring us happiness or misery. Everyone has their own ideas about life, and each is unique and individual. We know what we want and have everything we need to go anywhere and do anything. We can trust ourselves to choose the best road ahead and find our way to success. If we need more information, we can find it and then step forward on our own path. Others may disagree and criticize our choice, but the choice is ours to make. We can dig in and stand firm on what we want to do and how we will proceed. There is enough courage and wisdom inside us to guide us anywhere we want to go. Success is always there, and we will reach it.

Nobody knows everything. We can only get information that’s available at any moment in time and sometimes we may take a wrong turn because there were facts we were unaware of. We can only see what’s just ahead and there may be twists and turns in the future that hold us back or stop us in our tracks. If the road gets tangled, and we can’t push forward, we can choose another route. There are endless roads to every destination, and with persistence and patience, we will prevail.

Someone may think they know us better than we know ourselves, and if they aren’t in agreement with our plans, may try to dissuade us or obstruct the way forward. They may know us well, but nobody can possibly know what we want better than we do. The road ahead may be difficult, but we are strong. It may be complex, but we are intelligent. Nothing can keep us from any goal we desire, and we will succeed.

Today if you’re getting lots of advice regarding a specific goal, trust yourself. Decide how you want to proceed, and step forward. You are wiser and more powerful than you imagine, and every destination is there for you. Success is waiting, and with focus and clarity, nothing will keep you from it. Every dream is possible, and you will prevail.

Not Yet

27 Apr

Life is unpredictable and nobody knows how long they’ll be here before their ticket comes up and they check out. For most of us, life is long, and if we’re focused, there will be enough time to accomplish many of the goals we want. We can choose the destinations we desire, and then proceed toward them. However, if we flounder around, procrastinate, or just sit and let others pull us along, we’ll never achieve the things we desire no matter how much time we have. Years will come and go, and we’ll still be in the same place doing the same things. Nothing is beyond our reach and once we decide what we want, we can make a plan to get it, and then step forward and do what is necessary to succeed. If we’re determined and keep our eyes on the prize, nothing can keep us from success. Some things will come easily, but the big dreams and destinations will take effort and time – sometimes a lot of effort and time. If we’ve been pushing forward for seemingly forever, and our progress is slow, we may begin to feel it’s hopeless – we’ll never get there. Some things may elude us because they are not available right now due to situations out of our control. If we can’t advance, we can set the goal aside, and move on to something else. The destination will remain, and when things change and the road ahead opens, we can start again. Just because we haven’t yet reached the prize doesn’t mean it’s impossible. Timing is important and setting something down for now and moving onto something else isn’t giving up on the dream. We know what we want and can design our lives in ways to reach success. Every single dream is possible, and with wisdom and clarity, we will make them ours.

Failure is a natural part of life. It’s a learning process that shows us what doesn’t work and helps us change direction when we need to. Losing round one doesn’t mean we’ve lost the game. Failure isn’t the end of the journey but is actually success that hasn’t happened yet. We can take everything we’ve learned so far and choose the best way forward. Nothing can hold us in place forever, and we already possess everything necessary to accomplish anything. We can be confident and sure as we move closer to the goal, and trust that we’ll gain the prize.

It’s hard to be patient when we’re eager to reach a goal. We want to get to the end, and we want to get there now. Few roads are paved and clear for the entire trip, and we’ll likely run into issues, complications and snags that tangle us up and keep us from advancing. But every problem has a solution and we are intelligent enough to find all the answers we need. We are more capable and powerful than we imagine, and nothing can keep us from success.

Today if you’ve been on a long, difficult road, and the goal is still far in the distance, decide how you want to proceed. You can stay the course or move onto something else until things change. Be open and look at everything clearly. All the answers are there for you and you will find them. Every success is possible, every dream is waiting, and you will reach them all.

Without Doubt

9 Feb

Our lives are ours to design and we can do anything we want to do. Not everything will be easy but if we want to move forward, we can find a way. We will go through a lot of different experiences and some of them may leave their mark on us and make us feel less confident. Perhaps we’ve suffered through a terrible break in a relationship that has left us devastated, or someone says something that cuts us deeply and makes us doubt ourselves, or a thousand other possibilities. While we are in control of everything we do, we have no control over anything else. Others may hurt us, decisions may be made that impact us negatively, and we might struggle to find our footing. We may lose faith in our ability to succeed and feel lost and uncertain. We may hesitate to step forward, sure we will fail, and lose faith in our ability to move ahead. Nobody gets a perfect life when every road is paved, and nothing goes wrong. Everyone will suffer a set back from time to time. What we do once we’ve been knocked down will determine what comes next. We can stay down and surrender, give up on our dreams and merely exist, letting the days wash over us without a thought. Or we can look at everything possible, get back on our feet, and decide to continue on. We might get pushed all the way down, and be unable to see the road ahead, but we are more powerful than we may realize, and nothing can hold us down indefinitely. We can sit up, and then stand, strong and resilient, stepping forward toward where we want to go. There is no requirement for perfect confidence to begin moving ahead, and if we aren’t completely confident yet, we can trust it will come. Each step will bring us more clarity and assurance, and as we move closer to the goal, our strength will increase. Nothing can keep us from the goals we desire. Every dream is possible, and we will make them ours.

Everyone has their own opinions about life. Some people are courageous and ambitious, and move through complications without a second thought. Others are more cautious and mindful of the pits in the road, and careful taking each step. There is no one right way to live and there are unlimited roads to every goal. We can do things our way, take the time we need to feel comfortable and reach success. We already know what we want and have everything necessary to make it ours.

Few roads are clear and paved all the way forward. There will likely be problems, detours, and unexpected complications as we proceed. The road may get tangled and hard to navigate, but if we’re focused on success, none of that will matter. There is a solution to every problem, and we can figure out any issue that stops our progress. We have all the intelligence and wisdom we need to find the answers required to take us forward. Nothing can keep us from success, and we will prevail.

Today if you feel unsure that you can succeed, remember all the times you’ve overcome adversity already. You are powerful and strong, and have everything necessary to reach any goal you desire. Trust yourself and be confident. Decide how you want to proceed and step forward. Every dream is there for you and you will make them yours.
