Standing Around and Waiting

21 Jan

Life is filled with opportunities and there are always roads to travel and places to go. Everyone has their own ideas about what they want to accomplish and the destinations they want to reach. We can decide to do whatever we desire, make a plan and set forth determined to reach the goal. We’re in complete control of everything we do, but that is all. Other people may make decisions that stand in our way, situations may develop we don’t expect, and the road may turn away from us. Things are constantly changing, and although we may be very clear on what we want to do, we may face times when it seems everything is working against us. The door ahead may be closed and shut down and we might get stopped in our tracks. We can’t move ahead, and we’re stuck. What happens next is up to us. We can stand around and wait for things to change and just stay in place until that happens. Maybe it’ll take an hour, or a day, or a week, or a month or longer. We may remain for as long as we like. We may believe if we’re just patient, and wait, eventually the situation will change and we’ll be able to push through. That might happen, but how long it takes for that to come is undefined. In the meantime, our lives will continue on and if we do nothing but wait, the goals we desire will wait as well. Life goes on even if we stand still. There is no way to predict the future, or when our lives will change. Instead of standing around and waiting for an opening, we can set the goal aside and move onto something else. Nothing stays the same forever, and in time, we can return and try again. Our lives are important, and time is precious. By doing all we can to continue forward, no matter what is in the way, we will find great success. We can trust ourselves to choose the next best step, and move toward our dreams.

Nobody knows everything and there may come a time when we need someone else’s help or assistance to reach a specific goal. We may ask them for advice or guidance, and they may be happy to help. But we’re all busy and sometimes the help we need may not be available right away. We can be patient and wait for things to change, but while we wait, it isn’t necessary to stop our forward progression. We can continue moving ahead with something new, and step forward with confidence toward our next destination.

It takes courage and determination to step forward toward something new. Although we know what we want, we may be unsure about beginning the journey. Nobody knows what lies ahead or what the next turn will bring, and if we’re not confident, we may decide to wait. Simply standing and waiting will do nothing to change our situation. If we’re unsure, we can look into all the possibilities, and make a solid plan. Once we’ve decided how we’ll proceed, we can begin. It doesn’t matter what complications may come, we will handle them. There isn’t anything we can’t do and nothing is strong enough to keep us from success.

Today if you’ve been waiting for something to change so you can move forward, remember how strong and capable you are. If the road ahead isn’t available right now, move onto something else. Nothing is permanent, and when things change you’ll be able to start again and reach success. You have everything you need to do anything you desire. Trust yourself and be wise. Everything is there for you and you will make your dreams come true.

Sharpening Knives

6 Jan

The world is filled with all kinds of people. Many of those we meet are nice, often polite and helpful. But we’re all on different pages and some people may do things that offend, annoy or hurt us. Sometimes these things happen by accident but other times we may get tangled up with someone who does things against us on purpose for their own reasons. Maybe they’re jealous of us, or they think we’re a bit too confident and want to bring us down a notch. Maybe they’re unhappy and want us to suffer along with them. There’s no way to know why people do what they do unless they tell us, and when they’re in attack mode, chances are that won’t happen. We may build what we believe is friendship with someone who seems to like us, only to discover that the nice, gentle lamb we were dealing with was really a wolf. They may smile and agree when we are near but once we walk away, may begin sharpening the knife they plan to stick in our backs. It’s unproductive to live our lives under constant suspicion and paranoia that someone is out to get us, and we can trust others until they give us a reason not to. But it’s wise to keep our eyes open so we aren’t caught off guard. If we pay attention we’ll see cracks where things don’t add up and can do what is necessary to make sure we’re on solid ground. There are many great people in the world we can make wonderful connections and long lasting relationships with. By being wise and seeing everything openly we can avoid unwanted surprises and move forward with confidence.

Nobody knows everything or can read the future. We learn as we go and take all the knowledge we gain forward with us. We don’t have to touch a hot stove twice to know it will burn us. The same is true in our relationships. If someone hurts or manipulates us, they are telling us more about themselves. Of course, we all make mistakes but mistakes that are repeated again and again are personality patterns. We can trust our instincts and step away from any situation that isn’t working. We deserve complete happiness, and have everything necessary to achieve it.

It’s possible to be involved in a relationship with someone who is destructive and feel like there’s no way out. A long time relationship has it’s own dynamic and even if we’re desperately unhappy, we may remain because the unknown is intimidating. Our lives belong to us and we control every choice we make. We can choose unhappiness and despair, or we can decide to make a change. We are intelligent and capable, and when we’re ready, can do anything we desire.

Today if you feel unsure about something that’s happening, trust yourself. You never have to stay in any situation that makes you uncomfortable. Look at every option possible and step toward what you want the most. There isn’t anything you can’t do. You are a blessing to the world and bring great light. Be confident and sure. Every success is there for you and you will make them yours.

Carrying the Mountain

22 Oct

Everyone wants an easy life. We may dream about simply lying on a beach in the sun with no worries, and just floating through our days in blissful peace. It’s a nice dream, but for most of us, it’s far from reality. Most of the time we have responsibilities to take care of, details to manage, problems to solve and endless unexpected twists that take our time and attention. Sure we can take a vacation, and those days away from regular life are refreshing and fun, but eventually we must return. Nobody gets a perfect life. We all face trouble from time to time, and if we are going through something overwhelming and extremely difficult, we may feel the heavy weight of trial and despair. The road up the mountain may be hard, and we might stumble and fall. If we’re inundated me might feel like we have to carry everything in order to get through, but that’s not necessary. We never have to carry the mountain to get over it. Climbing it is enough. There is no need to let the issue, whatever it is, completely overcome us. If the journey is too steep, we can stop and take a rest. If the road is too tangled, we can look for another way around. Every problem has a solution, and by taking things one piece at a time, sometimes one breath at a time, we’ll find every answer needed to reach success. Nothing is so convoluted and difficult that we can’t figure it out. There is no rush. We can take our time and manage things as they arise. We are smart and capable, and will find every answer we need. The road ahead is already there. With patience and clarity we will find it, and step ahead, sure of success.

Nobody knows our situation better than we do. We are the only ones with the insight and inspiration we need to move forward. Others may offer suggestions or simply tell us what we should do. Their opinions may help, but they are only opinions based on what they can see, which is rarely the whole story. We know the facts and how we want to proceed, and can trust ourselves to choose our next steps, confident we will prevail.

If we’re facing something completely foreign and have no idea what to do, we can reach out for help. Everyone’s experiences are different, and chances are someone near us will have information that will assist us in finding our way forward. If nobody has anything to offer, we can search for whatever facts we need to move us forward. All the answers will be there for us, and nothing can keep us from success. The destination is waiting, and we will reach it.

Today if you feel like you’re carrying a mountain of trouble, set it down. Look at everything objectively and choose your next step forward. This is not too difficult for you to manage. Trust yourself and be confident. You are amazing and powerful, and nothing can keep you from success.

Anchored

18 Dec

Nothing in life is permanent and change is constant. Every day something new comes along, all the plans we’ve made may shift, and we may suddenly be facing an entirely new landscape. The winds of change are unpredictable and may arise unexpectedly. We never know what will happen next, and although we may try to be prepared for unforeseen surprises, we might be taken aback when they arrive. It’s easy to move forward when the road ahead is paved and clear, is well known and well-traveled. We may set out sure of success, and everything may go exactly as planned. Or everything may turn upside down. There is no way to predict the future. All we can do is cope with whatever happens the best we can, and alter our plans and direction in ways that enable us to continue. When we’re going through tumultuous times and everything is unsure, we are never completely adrift in the wind. We have internal anchors that help us stay focused and remind us of our capacity for success. These anchors are created and enriched with each accomplishment we achieve. We are never so far out of our comfort zone that we can’t find our way. There will never be a time when we are so untethered and adrift that we will permanently fail. All the answers we need, even in uncertain times, are already there for us, and the wisdom and knowledge we’ve attained so far will guide us to them. By trusting ourselves and remembering everything we’ve overcome so far, we can summon the courage we need to face anything. Our anchors will always be there to hold us firmly and securely. Hard times will come, things will go wrong, the road may disappear, but we will prevail. Every success is there for us, and with determination and calm, we will reach them all.

When our lives are going well and things are working out the way we want them to, we may feel at ease and relaxed. Enjoying conflict free moments gives us time to rest and consider our options for the future, so that when things change, and clouds appear, we will be confident in moving forward. We are stronger and more powerful than we realize, and nothing can keep us from our goals. Every dream we desire is possible and we have everything we need to make them ours.

Some people think life is like a scorecard. They believe that trouble happens because of something we did wrong. It’s likely we’ll all make mistakes along the way, but problems may arise we have no control over regardless of what we do. We can do everything right and still the road may turn because of circumstances beyond our reach. Problems will come but they cannot hold us in place. We will find the way ahead, and reach the destinations we desire.

Today if you feel like you’re in a whirlwind of trouble and can’t find your footing, stop and remember all the times you’ve succeeded already. You are intelligent and capable, and nothing is too difficult for you to manage. Trust yourself and step forward with confidence. You will find every answer. All your dreams are still there for you. Step forward and claim them.

What Could Happen

10 Sep

Life is unpredictable and we never know what tomorrow will bring. Everything is possible and we can start on any journey toward any goal at any time. Our lives are ours to design but if we sit on our hands and simply dream about what we could do, or what we want, nothing will change and our lives will remain stagnant. It’s impossible to stand still and move forward at the same time. Our destinies are up to us to determine, and we can do anything we want. However, if we don’t make our own decisions and choose the roads ahead, chances are those around us will choose them for us. We might go somewhere we like and accomplish something we want, or we might not. Nobody knows us better than we know ourselves, or what we want better than we do. Pondering what could happen and thinking about all the possibilities we could achieve is only the first step. If we want the lives we’re dreaming about, we have to take action and do what is necessary to make them reality. Nothing is out of bounds and we can achieve everything we desire. We can get anything and go anywhere but it won’t just happen because we want it, or we’re nice, or we deserve it. We must do what is needed to make them ours. It’s all up to us. We can leave our lives to chance and see what comes, or decide what we want and then step forward with confidence and make it happen. We are strong and capable, and have all the insight and wisdom we need to do anything. Every dream is possible and with focus and determination, we can find unlimited success.

There are lots of unknowns in every situation. If we’re unsure about the road ahead, or worried something unexpected will happen, we may end up going nowhere. Unexpected events will always come, and the road may turn toward something foreign or frightening. But we’re perfectly capable of managing whatever is before us, and can trust ourselves to find our way. It doesn’t matter if things get complicated – we’ll figure them out. It’s okay if we get lost – we’ll find our way again. We can be confident that we’ll solve any problem or issue that arises, and find the way forward.

No matter what our goals are, we must believe we can achieve them before we begin. If we think we might be okay, we might succeed. If we sort of try to move forward, we’ll sort of win. However, if we’re convinced that no matter what’s in front of us, we’ll find our way to the goal, nothing will stop us from achieving it. We are more powerful than we think we are, and can do anything and do it well. We can step forward with courage, believing every destination is waiting, and reach them all.

Today if you’ve been dreaming of something new or wishing your life was different, define what you want and begin toward the goal. You are stronger and wiser than you imagine, and nothing is out of reach. You really can have the life you dream about and nothing can keep you from success. Trust yourself. You already have everything you need to win. Be confident and look ahead. It’s all there for you and nothing will keep you from it. Every dream is possible, every single one. Stand tall. You will succeed.
