Bumper Cars

15 May

It’s fun to ride the bumper cars at carnivals and fairs. We have the opportunity to drive around in small, little cars and run into those around us, jamming them and preventing them from moving forward. It’s funny to see what happens as we bounce around and try to drive when others are pushing us. Bumper cars are fun but when we’re trying to get through a task or reach a goal, it’s nice to be able to move forward without any complications. However, sometimes it can feel like our lives are like being in bumper cars at the fair. Everywhere we turn something is in the way and if we try to move forward, something comes along and pushes us off track. We only have control over our own decisions, and other people may do things that keep us from moving forward or hold us in place. It’s impossible to get closer to our goal if we can’t advance and just continue to drive around in circles, knocked one way and another. Life can be filled with all kinds of complications and we don’t always know what others are doing or how their decisions will impact our plans. But we’re in control of our own choices and when we see the road ahead is blocked, we can find another way. There are many roads to every destination. We can leave the bumper car behind and choose a path that’s clear and available that will take us to our goal. We may have to backtrack or go in the opposite direction for a time, but eventually we’ll be able to maneuver onto an open road and continue forward. Every destination is possible but they aren’t all easy to get to. We may have to redesign our plans again and again until we find what works. It doesn’t matter how many revisions it takes. We can continue moving forward and reach any goal.

There will be few times in our lives when there is only one option for success. Generally, there will be several possible scenarios that will take us where we want to go. Any road we choose can be modified to take us to any destination. Things may not be ideal and we may have to wait until our circumstances change before we begin. It doesn’t matter when we start. Every step will take us closer to the goal and if we’re determined and focused, nothing can keep us from success.

There may be times when no matter what we do, we can’t move forward. We may be stuck because of circumstances beyond our control, or decisions being made by others. If we can’t advance now, we can let go of the goal until things change and we can start again. Nothing stays the same forever, and if we’re patient and watch carefully, we will find the chance to begin. Every goal is possible and we can make all our dreams come true. We can be wise and patient, and then with determination and focus, reach any destination we desire.

Today if you’ve been pushed off track and feel like you can’t move ahead, step back and look at the situation clearly and objectively. There is a way forward and you will find it. Be confident. Choose the road ahead and begin again. You can go anywhere and do anything. Nothing will keep you from success. You are powerful and wise, and will find the way forward.

False Prophets

2 Nov

As we go through our lives we have many destinations we want to reach.  Everything is possible and if we need assistance can seek the help and guidance of others.  There are likely many people around us willing to offer advice and information as we move forward.  Sometimes we take their counsel, and other times we may review their input and then continue on in our own way.  Although most people are good and will help us find the right way forward, there are some with personal agendas who may tell us to do something that will serve them in some way and keep us from progressing.  We don’t always know the motivations of others and like false prophets some may tell us to do things that instead of success bring us hardship and confusion.  Although they may appear to be our allies at first, if they are leading us astray the truth will rise and in time we will see things as they truly are.  It’s good to trust others and believe in them but not everyone is worthy of that trust.  We are wise and capable, and if we discover our trust has been abused we can turn another way and redirect our path forward.  If we follow someone else and discover they are taking us in the wrong direction we can step aside and start again.  We know what we want to do and where we want to go.  We have all we need to discern truth and find the right road.  Every destination is available to us and with careful determination we will reach any goal we desire.  There is nothing we can’t accomplish.  Finding the right road forward will help us achieve what we are seeking and bring us success.

We may face a time when someone in our circle who does not want us to succeed.  Perhaps they are intimidated by our accomplishments, or don’t have the courage to move forward themselves and want others to stay behind with them.  They may offer advice that will confound our efforts or suggest we are going the wrong way as we approach our goal.  We may listen to their comments and advice, and then let it go.  Our lives are ours to design and we know exactly what we want to do.  No matter what others want for us or where they think we should put our efforts we can continue forward according to our personal desires.

There is an old saying that one man’s trash is another man’s treasure.  Everyone has their own ideas about how to define success.  If we want to do something that others do not value they may try to adjust our focus and pull us off track.  We are all in control of our lives and can live them any way we choose.  Our perception of what personal success looks like is unique to us.  We don’t need the approval of others to do what we want to do most.  Every opportunity is there for us and we can move forward on the roads that will take us where we want to go.  We are strong and intelligent, and we know what we want.  We can do anything and find success.

Today if you’ve been following the advice of someone else and find you are not getting closer to your goal, redirect your course according to your personal desires.  Be confident and sure.  Everything is there for you.  You know what you want and you know how to get it.  You can do anything.
