Preparing to Win

10 Jun

There are endless things we can accomplish and unlimited places to go, and we can do anything we like. Everything is possible and knowing what we want is always the first step. There will always be many options possible, and it’s up to us to determine where we’ll go and how we’ll spend our time. Everyone wants to succeed and no matter what’s going on, we all want to win. But wanting to win alone will never take us to the prize. If we really want to get there, we must prepare to win. What that entails will be different for every goal we want to achieve. We may have to change our schedules or location to accommodate what must be done. We may have to alter behavior traits and set up routines to which we’re unaccustomed. Most accomplishments will require that we change something, and it may be easy or uncomfortable and difficult. How much we want the goal will determine what we’re willing to do to reach it. If it requires a lot and the price is more than we’re willing to give, we can set the goal aside and focus on something else. We can always return to it again if we decide we’re ready to try. Whatever we want to do is possible, but nothing will come simply because we desire it. We will never achieve our goals if we don’t do what is necessary to get there. Our lives are ours to design. We’re responsible for our own happiness. We can reach any destination we want and find complete satisfaction. Nothing is out of reach and with planning and determination, we will win.

Marathon races are big events. Lots of people participate and there are many people who come to watch and cheer the runners on. Often the atmosphere at the finish line is very festive and exciting. We might go to one and get caught up in the excitement, and decide we want to run in a marathon race. Lots of people do it, how hard could it be? We may buy great running shoes and good exercise clothes to prepare, but if we don’t get out on the road and actually start running and condition ourselves for the race, there is no way we could ever win. Every goal we want to accomplish is the same way. If we want to win, we must define what we need to do, and then do it.

When we’re on a road trip, we really appreciate good pavement. It makes the trip smoother, and easier to endure. Preparing effectively to reach a goal is like laying down a clear, smooth path that will help us move forward and ensure our success. Preparation is always the most important key to success. We may have all the enthusiasm possible and be highly interested in the goal, but if we don’t pave the way to get there, we won’t succeed. We already know what we want, and we have everything we need to get there.

Today if there’s a big goal you want to achieve, start preparing the way forward and move ahead with confidence. You have all the wisdom and courage you need to accomplish anything. Plan your steps carefully and prepare to win. Every dream is possible, and nothing can keep you from success.

Out of the Way

21 Mar

As we go through our lives, we interact with all kinds of different people who have all kinds of different ideas about everything. Some are pleasant and easy to deal with, others not so much. We may even have to interact with people who are rude and ruthless. There is a huge spectrum of personalities and perspectives. When someone is very self-interested and pushing forward on their own path without regard to others around them, they may push us out of the way as they press ahead. We be may be only obstacles in their path as they shove their way around us and continue on. We’re all entitled to our own interpretations and if we want to be selfish, we can choose to focus only on our own interests and disregard anyone else. We might get to the goal faster, but we’ll surely be alone in the victory, and we’ll miss any benefits building relationships along the way may bring. Nobody knows everything and everyone has something valuable to share. If we close ourselves off and keep ourselves apart, pushing everyone else away, we will miss the chance to gain information others may be willing to give us. Our goals are important and we all want to achieve success. We can move forward concentrating on the road ahead, and still build valuable relationships along the way. Each person we allow into our lives will give us something new to take with us. Our lives will be enriched by the many expressions and interpretations around us and we’ll gain further knowledge that will help us reach our goals. We’re all here together. Learning to let others into our lives and embracing everything they bring will teach us more about each other and our world. No success is out of reach and by joining together we will reach every destination.

A long road trip with days and days of endless highway can quickly become tedious and boring. Being alone by ourselves for a while can be restful and refreshing, but if the time stretches beyond what is comfortable, we may yearn for someone to talk to and share our experiences with. We can allow others to share the journey with us and gain the benefit of different opinions and viewpoints. Everyone has a different perspective and each idea has value. We can share our lives and our dreams with those around us and gain insight and ideas to help us move forward.

Each day we make decisions that take us further down the road as we continue our journey forward. If we get stopped or lose our way, it’s helpful to have someone else’s perspective to find the way forward again. What’s unclear to us may be obvious to someone else. Every bit of knowledge we gain helps us move forward and we can be open to asking for advice and listening to suggestions. We can share our lives and our dreams, and reach every destination we choose.

Today if you’ve been pushing others out of the way in a rush to reach your goals, remember you can’t know everything. Others have much to share and you can let them in. If you do, the road will be easier and the journey will be more satisfying. Every success is there for you. Be wise and confident, and nothing will keep you from your dreams.
