Do Over

27 Mar

We all have many skills that help us get through the various things we must accomplish every day. We’re good at some things, expert at a few things, and some things may be new or foreign to us. We get what comes without regard to the skill set we currently possess and sometimes we may be lost trying to figure out what we’re supposed to do or how to solve a problem we’re facing. We can evaluate all the options we can see and try our best to move ahead, but we may get hung up or choose a solution that doesn’t work and have to start again. If the problem is complex, we may have to start over more than once until we can solve it and let it go. A do over isn’t an indication that we’re not smart enough to manage the issue or that we’re in over our heads. It just means we’ve discovered that the first thing we tried, or the second, or the third, didn’t work and we get to try again. All the knowledge we gain from our successes and our failures is valuable and will help us in the future. Perfection may be the goal but it will rarely be the achievement. We can be confident that no matter how complicated or difficult the task is, or how convoluted the problem we’re facing, we’ll find our way through. We’re smart enough and brave enough to continue forward until we reach success. Life is all about learning and every day brings us something new to challenge and teach us. There isn’t anything we can’t do and with determination and patience can solve any problem that arises. Nothing is beyond our reach and we’ll find all the answers we need to prevail.

We are far more capable than we may imagine. We sometimes think we could never do a certain task but when it appears before us, we find a way to accomplish it. They say necessity is the mother of invention, and when we’re in a foreign situation and must find our way through, we can figure out what needs to be done to manage it effectively. We have all the intelligence and resources we need to find the answers and move forward, and can be confident we’ll succeed even in the most daunting situations. We are strong enough and wise enough to solve any problem before us.

If we’re intimidated by something and overwhelmed trying to understand the situation, we may believe it’s impossible to solve. Our fight or flight reflex may kick in and prompt us to run for our lives. It’s hard to think when there is serious trepidation or we’re in a panic. Before we throw our hands up and surrender, we can stop, look at everything clearly and take the first small step toward resolving the issue. Once that is done, we can take the second and eventually, even the most devastating problem will be solved. We are powerful and wise, and can find our way through anything that arises. Success is always possible and we will find it.

Today if you’ve been working a problem and you’ve hit an impasse, don’t give up. Review all the possibilities before you and try again. The answers are there for you and you will find them. There isn’t anything too complex or difficult for you to solve. You are powerful and intelligent, and have everything you need to succeed. Be confident. You will prevail.

Not Possible

26 May

When we want to do something new, especially something that hasn’t been done before, we may hear others tell us it can’t be done. If nobody has yet accomplished what we’ve set our sights on, some may say it isn’t possible. But that isn’t always true. Every day someone does something nobody has ever achieved in the past and although we know that, if we’re trying to do something new, the opinions of those around us may influence us. It would be wonderful if we could get unlimited support for all our ideas, but that doesn’t often happen. There will be some who will agree with our plans and even try to help with them, and others who will tell us we’ll never succeed. Perhaps there is fear for our safety, or fear of the changes the accomplishment could bring. Sometimes people aren’t supportive because they lack the courage to try new things and don’t want others to succeed. But if we want to do something, no matter what that something is, we are certainly capable of doing it. Even if all the winds blow against us, if we are determined to succeed, we can move forward. There really isn’t anything we can’t do if we want to badly enough. It doesn’t matter if it’s never been done before, it doesn’t matter if nobody thinks we can succeed, and it doesn’t matter if we’re the only ones who want to do it. We can do anything we like. We have enough initiative and courage to accomplish anything. All we need is to believe in ourselves.

Sometimes we start something new and unforeseen complications arise that make it hard to move forward. We don’t always know all the details at the beginning and when they appear they can stop us for a time. We may begin to doubt our ability to move forward. We might start to listen when we hear others say it can’t be done, and we might begin to believe it was a bad idea. But we can remember why we wanted to do this, and why it was important to us. If it’s still something we want, we can manage whatever complications arise. It might take longer than we thought it would to get to the goal, and it might be harder than we knew when we started. None of that matters if we really want to succeed. If it takes longer, we can stay on course. If it’s harder, we can get help. There is nothing that can stop us if we want the goal badly enough.

As we push forward, eventually the end will be in sight. Sometimes when we get close to success we feel trepidation. When the goal is near, we may feel unsure we can manage the changes that are coming. After all, we’ve spent all our time pressing forward and really have no idea what things will look like when we get to the end. We may hesitate to take the last few steps. If that happens we can remember why we set the goal to begin with and what we want to gain. We can be confident in our decision to seek it and bravely move forward to success. Change always takes some adjustment, even when the change is positive. We are perfectly capable of managing success and adjusting to whatever changes it brings. We know what we want and we are courageous enough to get it.

Today if there is something you really want to do but others are saying it can’t be done, or that it isn’t possible, trust yourself. You know what you want and you know how to succeed. Set your course and move forward. You are capable of achieving anything you set your mind to. You deserve all the success you are seeking. Keep your eyes focused forward and you’ll get there.
