Getting Serious

4 Feb

There are unlimited things we can do in life and endless goals to achieve. Each day changes us a little and teaches us something new. Our dreams and goals change as we grow, and what we wanted in the past may not be our focus today. We learn new things each day and can adjust our direction going forward to get to the goals we want the most. Some goals take a lot of thought and we may need time before we decide we’re ready to move toward them. If they require changes in our patterns or behaviors, we may need to prepare before we’re ready to embrace them completely. It’s okay to take our time. We don’t have to jump on an idea the moment we think of it. Success doesn’t have to be tied to the amount of time we take to achieve it. We can think about what we want and decide when we want to accomplish any goal we desire. Once we’re ready and determined to move forward, nothing can keep us from success. There isn’t anything we can’t do if we’re focused on the goal. We can plan our way forward, and each step we take will move us closer to where we want to go. There are infinite possibilities before us every day. We can dream big and then make our dreams come true. No destination is out of reach. Once we decide where we want to go and are willing to do what is necessary to get there, nothing can keep us from success. Life is filled with opportunities. We can do anything and can have the lives we dream about. We can get serious about what we really want and make it ours. It’s all up to us.

There are countless things that can go wrong when we’re trying to accomplish something. People may intervene and get in the way, decisions out of our control may complicate the road ahead, and our timing may be impacted and we may have to wait. There will rarely be a paved, straight road ahead without any problems or delays. We are capable of managing any complications that arise and if we have to wait, we can step aside for a time until things improve and then return to continue our journey forward. Our lives belong to us and we can make them any way we like. We can accomplish any goal and reach any destination.

A bright, sunny day with clear skies and comfortable temperatures makes life enjoyable and easy. When things are going well and the road ahead is clear and open, we can move forward quickly and accomplish much. But the weather in our lives is unpredictable and can change without warning. When dark clouds roll in and the rain has us locked in, we can use the time to plan our next steps ahead and be ready when things change. Nothing can keep us from anything we desire. We can stay focused on the goal and be confident of success.

Today if you’re ready to begin moving toward a goal you’ve been thinking about, take the first step forward. Decide to hold fast even if things get complicated and keep moving ahead. There isn’t anything you can’t do and no destination is too far to reach. Trust yourself and be confident. You are amazing and powerful, and nothing is impossible. Every success is just ahead. Your dreams can come true and you will win.

Turning Around

21 Sep

Life is unpredictable and our situation can suddenly change without warning.  The road ahead may abruptly close because of decisions made by others or we may suddenly see things that completely change our trajectory going forward.  It’s not always easy to get through difficult and unexpected developments.  We’re certainly strong enough and wise enough to manage whatever comes to us but when the road changes all at once and we’re now headed in a new and unknown direction we may feel overwhelmed and unable to cope.  If the goal isn’t important changing direction may be easy, but if we really wanted to achieve something we feel is imperative for our happiness, we can revise our journey and make a new plan.  Turning around doesn’t always mean going backward and giving up.  It can also mean reviewing our desires and deciding what’s most important and then finding another way to make the goal ours.  There isn’t just one road to success.  There are always many ways to get there.  If one road ends, there is another nearby that is open and ready.  A sudden stop is merely an interruption in our plans and we can continue forward another way.  Everything we want to accomplish is possible.  There isn’t anything strong enough or powerful enough to hold us in place.  We can expand our thinking to find new ways to achieve anything we want.  The whole world is there for us and everything is within reach.

When we need to hammer a nail into a board, generally we won’t get it through on the first hit.  We’ll probably have to hit the nail a few times, and if we bend it will have to tap on it to get it straight again before we can proceed.  The same is often true with our plans.  Sometimes things will go without a hitch and we’ll get to the goal quickly and without problems.  But many times there will be things in the way.  Someone may not agree with us and try to stop our progress.  Or we become aware of situations we didn’t know about that hold us up.  But like hammering in a nail, we can keep pushing forward and with determination reach the goal.

If many things get in our way and we can’t seem to make any progress, we can stop altogether and re-evaluate the situation.  Timing is important and sometimes what we’re trying to do isn’t possible right now.  Life is always changing and what’s not available now may be easy to reach in the future.  If we can’t move forward where we are, we can set the goal aside and work on something else.  Setting a goal aside doesn’t mean we’re giving up.  There are many things to accomplish and when we’re ready we can pick up where we left off and start again.  There is nothing we can’t do and with patience and planning every goal we desire will become reality.

Today if you’ve run into a roadblock on the way to your goal, take a look around and see all the options possible.  If there is no way around the problem, make a new plan for going forward.  You can do anything and every dream is possible.  Be confident.  You will prevail and all your dreams can come true.

Momentary

4 Apr

When we’re trying to accomplish something and want to move forward successfully we try to avoid problems that may hold us up.  If we were in control of everything around us we could prevent anything from getting in the way but there are all kinds of people making endless decisions that may impact our journey and stop our progress.  Sometimes we might face a serious snag that stops us altogether and we get stuck trying to figure out what to do next.  When momentary losses are far reaching we may believe we’ve reached the end of the road.  It’s hard to see over a tall barrier and if someone who refuses to move is standing in our way we may think there is no way to succeed.  But often momentary losses open up new ideas and roads for the way forward.  What we couldn’t see while our eyes were focused ahead is now clearly visible as we look around for answers.  There is never only one road to any destination.  We always have options and stopping to look around will help us find them.  Complications will always be a factor.  When they come we can throw our hands up and walk away, or we can stop where we are, look around and find another way forward.  There are endless options available to us to find success.  We can see momentary losses as opportunities to re-think our plans and discover new ideas that will help us succeed.  We can do anything we really want to do.  Nothing can hold us in place when we want to move.  The world around us is filled with opportunity and if one door is locked, we can find another.  Success is always possible and we have all the patience and wisdom we need to find it.

When we take a road trip we may plan the route we want to take and choose the roads we want to travel.  Sometimes we may come upon a detour that takes us to places we hadn’t planned on.  When that happens we don’t give up on the journey and decide to quit.  We simply drive through the new route until we’re back on the road going forward.  When we’re trying to accomplish something in our lives and come upon a roadblock we don’t need to forsake the journey.  We can evaluate our new circumstance and find our way to the goal.  Giving up will never bring success.  Learning to adapt and change our focus when needed will take us where we want to go.

There may be times when trying to reach a goal we face one complication after another and every time we solve one problem another arises.  Sometimes success is all about timing.  We don’t have to forsake the goal but we can choose to do other things now and return to it later.  We can accomplish anything we set our minds to if we are determined and patient.  Life is filled with possibility and we have everything we need to find success.

Today if you’ve come to a brick wall in your plans and can’t move forward, look around at the possibilities and options available.  There isn’t anything you can’t do.  Be patient, be wise and move forward with confidence.  The whole world is there for you.  You are strong and capable, and nothing is out of reach.

The Way Out

3 Feb

We make millions and millions of decisions as we go through our lives and many times our choices take us exactly where we want to go and everything works out.  But there will inevitably be times when we make a bad decision that brings us disharmony, pain or confusion.  There are limitless reasons why this may happen.  Maybe we didn’t have all the facts beforehand, maybe we chose out of anger, maybe we got lost, or any of a number of other reasons.  No matter what caused the bad decision, once we’re in it and realize we’re headed for trouble we may look for a way out.  We might try to find an escape hatch to let us step away before everything falls in.  The desire to escape when trouble is on the horizon is a normal response to threat and if we know disaster is just ahead we may try to divert our course, hide behind something else, or pretend we aren’t involved.  Even if we’re successful in escaping the first wave of trouble, if we caused it, it will catch up to us eventually.  We can look for a way out but the only real way through our problems is to face them head on, and walk right through them.  It will take determination and it may take courage, but there isn’t anything we can’t manage and no problem we can’t solve.  We can admit to our part in the problem and then begin to do what is needed to correct our way forward.  Happiness comes when we live our lives effectively and purposefully.  We all make mistakes and when they result in additional problems we can do what we must to fix them.

Some people hide when they make choices that bring hardship.  They may pretend they weren’t involved, deny their participation, or ignore the problems that arise.  We can dodge the truth but the truth is what is real and will always surface.  If we deceivingly deny our part in the issue we may lose the respect of those around us and create more complications.  It’s best to step forward and honestly admit what we’ve done, and then work to correct the situation.  Everyone makes mistakes but there are no mistakes so terrible we can’t face them.  We have all the courage and wisdom we need to correct our course and turn onto the right path going forward.

If we’re in situations where the choices we need to make are unclear, we can wait until we get the information we need.  We don’t have to rush into decisions if we aren’t ready.  We can prepare ourselves before we decide.  All the information we need to choose wisely is available and we can take time to find it before we make our choice.  We are in control of our actions and even if there is pressure to hurry, if we are not ready to move forward we can step back until we feel confident.  We know how to make good decisions and we are wise enough to choose well.  Success if often a matter of timing.  We can take our time and make the best decisions possible.

Today if you’ve made a mistake and the results are troublesome and difficult, do what you must to fix the situation and move forward with confidence.  If you have a big decision pending and aren’t sure which way to go, take the time you need to get the information that will help you decide.  You have everything you need to make excellent choices.  You are wise and thoughtful and you will choose well.
