Obstruction

24 Jun

We live in the world with billions of other people. We’ll never meet them all but there will likely always be someone around us. We all have our own goals and ideas, and are all on different roads. There are unlimited ways to get to any destination, and we choose our own path. Although our journey is ours alone to design, it doesn’t mean while we’re on our way we’ll be alone the entire time. Everyone gets to design their lives any way they like and we may face a time when someone else’s journey causes a disruption in our own. We may be in each other’s way trying to move forward. What we want may be in direct opposition to what they are trying to achieve, and if we must work together, there will be conflict. If we’re sure our plans are best and we’re determined to continue the way we started, it may be hard for us to listen to any other point of view. We can dig in our heels, and refuse to budge, but a stalemate will never move us forward. There is a way around every obstruction we may face. Compromising doesn’t mean we have to give up what we want. We can hear other suggestions for the way forward, and modify our plans to accommodate whatever situation we’re in. We never have to stop our journey indefinitely to allow someone else to complete theirs. It will always be possible to find a solution to any impasse that lets everyone continue forward and helps us reach our goals. We are smart and able to find solutions to any problems we face. By being open to new ideas and listening carefully, we’ll find the answers we need. Success will always be there for us, and we will prevail.

When we drive a car there are rules of the road we must obey. They are designed to help everyone move ahead without causing problems or blockades. We will rarely have the road to ourselves, and it’s important to follow the rules so that everyone can move forward and reach their destination. If we come upon something that blocks our path, trying to ram it out of the way or drive over it may cause us more delay and trouble than simply stopping, and looking for a way around it. The same is true in our personal journeys. We can always find an alternate route to get us to our goal, and overcome any obstacle. Nothing can keep us from success, and we can move forward with clarity and confidence.

Some people may feel they have all the answers and any non-compliance with their ideas is unacceptable. If they have authority over us, we may be compelled to follow their lead, but if not, we can choose our own path. We’re all entitled to our own opinions, but that’s all they are – opinions. Nobody has the inside track on anyone else’s life. We know what we want, and where we want to go, and with determination and focus, can reach every goal.

Today if your plans have hit a big roadblock and you can’t move, stop and look at all the possibilities available. There is always a way around any problem we face. Decide how you want to proceed, and continue forward. You are capable of greatness, and nothing can keep you from your goals. Trust yourself and step forward toward success.

Starting Again

16 Dec

There are a lot of things we want to accomplish and goals we want to reach. Some of them are personal and require us to change habits or patterns that may be difficult to let go of. We might start out strong, completely committed to the goal, and then our lives get busy and we get distracted. Eventually we may begin to slide back a little and lose our focus, and then before we know it, we’re completely off track and going in the wrong direction. Maybe not for the first time. Our set routines are strong and powerful, and change doesn’t come easily. We are capable of changing anything we want, but it takes real determination to hold fast to our focus, and decide not to waver. We can have the lives we want the most, but they won’t just happen because we’ve decided we’re ready for them. Nothing can change if we keep doing the same things we’ve been doing. Once we decide, really decide, we’re ready to redirect our course and do things differently, the change will come. We are more powerful and stronger than we think we are. Nothing is too difficult or complex for us to manage, and we can go anywhere and do anything we desire. We just have to decide what we want, and then do what is needed to get it. Nothing is out of reach, nothing is too big to tackle, and nothing will take too long. Every goal is within our grasp and we will reach success.

If we’ve tried to make a change before and gotten waylaid and off track, only to return back to where we started, we might begin to believe the goal is beyond what we can achieve. There are some things that may not be possible at this time in our lives, but most things we desire are within our capabilities. They may not be easy to get, they may take a lot of time and effort, and the road to get them might be hard to travel. There may be all kinds of reasons not to push forward, but the most important reason to continue is because we want the goal. Our lives are a reflection of every decision we make. If we don’t like where we are, we can move. If we don’t like the situation we’re in, we can step away. We’re in complete control and can do anything we choose.

It doesn’t matter how many times we return to the beginning and start again. It doesn’t matter how long it takes us to do what is needed to reach any goal. What matters is that we live our lives according to our own personal desires, and push toward the destinations we want the most. Everyone has their own opinions and we don’t need anyone else’s approval or permission to do anything we desire. We can design our lives any way we want them, and find great joy and satisfaction in doing what’s most important.

Today if a goal has eluded you, and you’re starting again, remember how strong and capable you are. Every goal is possible and with determination and focus, you can go anywhere and do anything. You really can have the life you dream of. Decide what you want, and then take the first step forward. You can achieve greatness and find complete happiness. Every success if possible, and you will prevail.

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.
