Perfect Timing

16 Sep

Our lives are complicated and busy, and we often have many things we want to accomplish. Everyone has their own personal goals waiting to be achieved, and although we may think about them often, because of other commitments, they may get pushed aside. We may think we’ll wait until things settle down, and we have more time to address them. After all, we have a lot to do and we’ll get to them eventually. Responsibilities tend to be constant, and there will always be something else to attend to. Waiting for the perfect time, and watching for a window when everything is settled and our time is wide open to do the things we want the most, is a fool’s game. The chances of ever reaching a complete pause are close to zero. Everything is constantly changing and until we pro-actively set time aside to address our own personal goals, we will likely never reach them. There will always be something that needs to be done, but our lives are important and we deserve complete happiness. By valuing the destinations we most want to reach and then setting time aside to move toward them, we will find great satisfaction and happiness. We own our lives but we must take control of them. If we don’t, time will pass and we may find years have gone by and we’re still standing in the same place. We deserve complete happiness, and by carefully planning and making our dreams a priority, we will have it. Nothing is beyond our grasp and with clarity and confidence, we can achieve anything.

It’s good to be helpful and serve others. We can serve in our communities, at work, within our personal circle of friends and family, and countless other ways. Helping others is noble and worthwhile, but we can be helpful and still make time for our own desires. It isn’t selfish to think of ourselves and push toward the destinations we want to achieve. Our desires are important and we can find ways to be helpful and still move toward our own dreams.

When we’re busy and overwhelmed it’s hard to think about our own wants and needs. If we’re stressed and it seems everyone wants a piece of us, it’s difficult to consider our own desires. There are lots of people around us and many may want our time and attention, but we are in control of our lives. We decide how much we can give, and can handle whatever we must and still take time for ourselves. We are important and our dreams are important. We can have the lives we want the most by managing our time in ways that allow us to move closer to our dreams.

Today, remember that you are the most important person in your life. Nobody will make your dreams come true but you. Plan your time in ways that lets you accomplish what you must and still move toward your personal goals. Every single dream is there, waiting. Step forward, and be confident. You are wise and capable. Nothing is out of reach, and you can claim the life you want the most.

The End is Near

26 Aug

We’ll go through countless different experiences and scenarios as we navigate through our lives. We will build relationships, make connections, work with others, and learn a lot about who we are and how the world works. We can’t predict the future and there is no way to know what will happen next. Change is the only thing we can count on. No matter where we are or what we’re doing, eventually our situation will change. Nothing can stay the same forever, and although we may intellectually recognize this, it isn’t always easy to accept the changes when they appear. Our relationships are important, and it feels good when they’re going well. If both parties are invested in keeping the relationship strong, and willing to do what it takes to stay connected, they may last our entire lifetimes. But not every relationship will survive the test of time. People change and those changes may move us further apart instead of holding us close. Saying goodbye when we don’t want to leave can be heartbreaking. We may try to do anything to salvage the situation, and that might work, but there will be times when no matter what we do, the die is cast, and our lives are headed in a new direction. Unless our next move brings us greater advancement and joy, endings are rarely easy. When the winds of change blow over our lives, and we’re facing a new reality, we may feel unsettled and unsure. However, we are wise and strong, and can find our way through whatever comes. Success will always be there for us, and every dream is still possible. By trusting ourselves, and believing in our ability to succeed, we can step forward with confidence and clarity.

When we’re happy and everything is working out, it would be great if we could freeze time. If we could just stop everything and stay where we are we would never have to worry. But this is real life, and we only have control over our own decisions. Events beyond our reach will happen, and our lives will eventually be impacted. If we’re facing the end of something we love and value, we may believe that’s it. The new road is just too hard to face and we’ll never survive. That will never be true. We are capable of managing whatever we must, and in time, with patience and determination, we’ll forge a new path and find happiness again.

The first day of a new situation is like a blank page. Nothing has yet been written, and every option is possible. We can decide how we want to proceed, and start to create the life we dream about. By opening new doors, and trying something new, we will find great refreshment and excitement. There are endless possibilities and we can do anything. Every single destination is there for us, and we will reach them all.

Today if you’re facing the end of something you don’t want to lose, stand strong and look ahead. Turning the page is just the beginning of something wonderful. You are amazing and talented, and nothing can keep you from anything you desire. Step forward with strength and confidence. The whole world is there for you, and you will find great success.

Dare to Begin

14 Apr

We’re all moving forward, taking chances, choosing roads, and creating our lives with every choice we make.  There are endless opportunities and unlimited paths to follow, and we can design things any way we like.  We all have an idea of what our perfect life looks like, and no matter where we’re going, or what we’re doing, can make decisions that will either push us further away or move us closer to it.  If we aren’t happy where we are now, we can move in a new direction.  Every blessing is possible, but one thing is certain – if we change nothing, nothing will change.  It’s a simple concept, but life is complex and there are a lot of moving parts.  If we have many balls in the air and are inundated, the idea of working on something new may be overwhelming.  Even if we want to change our circumstances, we may put it off thinking we’ll get to it when things settle down.  That might work, but life is unpredictable, and it’s often unclear when our situation will change.  Waiting until the road is open and we have everything in place to start a new journey may seem like a good plan, but when that will occur is anyone’s guess.  Rare are the times when everything sails along without complication.  Most of the time there will be something in the way, and other responsibilities to address.  We can do anything we like, but if we want the lives we dream about, we must dare to begin moving toward them despite what is happening around us now.  Every possibility is already there for us, and we are wise enough and courageous enough to reach success.  The world is filled with opportunities and every goal is within reach.  By deciding what we want the most and then doing what is necessary to make it ours, we can create the lives we dream of.  Nothing is too far or too difficult to reach.  Every single destination is possible, and with determination and focus, we will succeed.

Life can be complicated, and we may be very busy.  We may accomplish many things but if we aren’t moving toward what we really want it’s unlikely we’ll feel completely fulfilled and happy.  We are intelligent and can find ways to monitor and control the time we spend in every pursuit to ensure we have time to work toward the goals we most desire.  Our lives are important and achieving the destinations we want the most will bring us great satisfaction and happiness.

Time flies and once it’s gone can never be recaptured.  We may believe that if we haven’t yet worked toward the goals we desire, it’s too late, and they are now out of reach.  It’s never too late to change course and push toward what we most want to accomplish.  We may need to reorganize our priorities and make some changes, but every dream is still possible.  We can have the lives we want the most and reach every goal.  It’s all there for us.  We need only step forward and claim it.

Today if you’ve been putting off what you most want to accomplish, think about how you want to proceed.  Every dream is possible, but you must begin forward to make them yours.  You are amazing and more powerful than you imagine.  Success is there for you, and you will reach every goal.

Switching the Tape

18 Nov

Life is full of challenges. There are endless twists and turns, complications, unforeseen developments, and all kinds of complex issues. Even when we plan well, and chart a clear course ahead, crap happens, and we can get tangled up and thwarted as we try to move forward. When things go wrong, the easiest thing in the world to do is stop trying and start complaining. It takes zero effort and gets us nowhere. If the goal isn’t important, we can let it go when we hit the first snag and move on to something else, hoping there won’t be any more problems. Well, hope springs eternal, but we live in the real world, and there will be few times when everything goes exactly the way we want it to. If we can’t manage unexpected problems, it will be difficult to accomplish much. There are endless things that can go wrong, and it can be maddening if we have continual issues and roadblocks on the road ahead. Frustration is normal but if we let it take over and abandon the journey, we will be unable to make our dreams reality. Instead of seeing every problem that arises as the end of the road, we can switch the tape and challenge ourselves to find the way forward. There really isn’t anything we can’t figure out if we’re determined and focused. It might take longer than we planned, and it might be harder than we thought at the beginning. Those things don’t matter. All that matters is that we face whatever happens and do what is needed to overcome any hindrance. We are strong and powerful and have all the intelligence and wisdom we need to do anything we desire. By being confident in the face of disaster, and refusing to accept defeat, we will prevail. The whole world is there for us, and we can have the lives we want the most. We must just be willing to do the work.

Everyone wants a life filled with ease and pleasure. Dreaming about a perfect world may be nice, but we don’t live in Nirvana. We live in reality where people make mistakes, barriers get in the way, and things go wrong. A lot. It’s possible that some good things may fall into our laps without any planning or effort, but mostly we’ll have to work to achieve the things we want the most. We are capable of designing our lives any way we like. With persistence and clarity, we can go where we want to go, and do all the things we want to do.

Nobody is perfect. We all make mistakes and someone else might make a bad choice that impacts our lives and give us heartburn. We can waste time ranting and raving about what’s happened, but that will only hold us place. If something gets in the way, we can find the road around it. If someone is holding us up, we can step away from them and go in a new direction. Complications will come, but we are strong enough and smart enough to overcome them and continue forward toward our goals.

Today if it seems everything is standing in your way and you’re frustrated and angry, stop and think about what you want the most. What is the goal you really want to accomplish? Look at everything objectively and you will find the way forward. You are amazing and capable, and nothing can keep you from success. Every single dream is there for you, and you will make them yours.

In the Moment

27 May

We’re often busy with things we need to accomplish, and as we go from one task to another, time flies by. Before we know it, the day is over, and although we may have accomplished a lot, if we didn’t pay attention to our own goals, we might feel unsettled. Each moment we’re here is priceless, and once it’s gone will never be ours again. What we do with our time matters. Nobody knows how long they’ll be alive on earth. Putting off what we most want to accomplish, and procrastinating our own success may work against us. There will always be stuff we need to do. We have lots of responsibilities, tasks that need completion, and endless details that crop up. If we don’t pay attention, days, weeks, months or even years may rush past before we stop to look at where we are. Every day is a blessing. We get one shot at it, and then it’s gone. Work will always expand to fill the time we give it. If we want to achieve our personal goals, we need to focus on them. We always do what we want to do most. Sometimes our commitments take over and leave little time for personal reflection, but we are in control of everything we do, and if we want personal success, we have to make our lives a priority. No matter what’s going on around us or how much we have to address, there will always be time to take care of ourselves. Our lives belong to us alone, and we can accomplish anything we desire. Each moment counts. We can have the lives we dream of if we take charge of our decisions and continue forward. Life is full of distractions and we may get turned around a time or two, but we know what we want, and can move toward any goal we desire and make it ours.

It isn’t selfish to focus on our own lives, and work on our own personal goals. We deserve complete happiness but nobody can give it to us. It’s our responsibility to do what is necessary to achieve it. Deciding what we want and then doing what is needed to make it ours will bring us great satisfaction. There isn’t anything too far away for us to reach, and no road too difficult to travel. We can take the time we need to move forward toward the lives we want, and achieve greatness. Everything is there for us. We need only decide what we want, and then step forward to claim it.

We decide how we’ll spend our time. There will always be more to do than we can accomplish, and we’ll never run out of tasks that need our attention. Our lives are our responsibility, and we decide how we’ll manage them. Even if we’re busy, we can make time to work on our own personal goals. It’s impossible to be completely happy if we aren’t where we want to be, or haven’t reached our desired destinations. We already know what we want, and have everything we need to get it. We can manage our time in ways that allow us to move toward every goal, and reach every success.

Today if you’ve been caught up in completing tasks and checking off boxes, remember your time is precious. Decide what you most want, and then plan your time in ways that help you achieve it. Every dream is possible, and you already possess everything you need to succeed. Step forward with confidence. Nothing is out of reach, and you will win.
