Cringe Worthy

29 Jan

Life is long and takes us to many different places, teaching us many new things. We don’t ever know everything, and each experience gives us more information than we had before. We learn as we go, and take all the knowledge we gain forward with us. When we look back, sometimes we may have a memory of something we did that turned out to be a mistake. There is no way to appropriately judge what we did before by the knowledge we posses now, but looking behind we may be critical of a prior decision. Perhaps the decision was so bad, that seeing it now, we cringe to believe we thought it was the best way forward. However, back then, it’s likely we made the decision based on all the information we had at the time, which will never be the same as all the information we have now. Life is cumulative, and we gain more with each step we take. There is no way to change the past, and trying to dissect why we did something before will never alter what’s happened. We are where we are now. What’s done is done. We can trust that whatever we did before taught us something of value. We may be wiser now than we’ve ever been, but chances are we’ll be even smarter in the future. Every step gives us more knowledge, and our intelligence increases as we experience new things. There is nothing to be gained by criticizing decisions made in the past. We can see them for what they are, understand where they took us and what they brought into our lives, good or bad, and proceed ahead with confidence. We can see what’s before us, and make decisions that will take us where we most want to go. We are intelligent and capable, and know what we want. Every goal is within our reach, and we can find our way forward.

We are all the sum total or our experiences, and if we’ve had serious disappointments and our plans haven’t worked out, we may begin to believe we will never succeed. Nobody wins in every fight. Sometimes we aren’t going to prevail, but that doesn’t mean we can’t achieve our goals. We are strong and resilient, and failure is just a way of getting more information. Every goal is possible, and with determination and focus, we can go anywhere, and do anything.

On a road trip, if we take a wrong turn and end up going the wrong way, we can stop and change direction. We never have to continue going in the opposite direction simply because we made a mistake. The same is true in our personal lives. Nothing is forever, and everything can be altered. If we don’t like where we’re headed, we can turn around. If the road we’re on turns out to be going somewhere we don’t want to go, we can step off and choose another. We’re in control of our lives and can change them anytime we desire. Every goal is possible and nothing can keep us from success.

Today if you have regrets over something that happened in the past and it’s affecting your choices moving forward, take control and decide how you want to proceed. The past does not dictate your future. You know what you want, and have everything you need to achieve it. All your dreams are possible, and nothing is out of reach. Be confident. You are wise and strong, and will succeed.

Right Now

1 Jan

There are unlimited things we can do in our lives and endless goals we can accomplish. When we have a lot of different ideas about what we want to do next and want success to come quickly, we might try to do many things at the same time. It’s always possible to work on more than one goal at a time, but trying to travel many roads at once doesn’t always make the journey go faster. We are highly capable of succeeding at anything we desire, but if we try to do too much, we may get overloaded and unable to move forward. It’s impossible to be completely focused on more than one thing at any time. We can decide what we want the most, and then keep our eyes trained on the way ahead. Our success depends on how effectively we move toward the goal and how we manage any complications that may arise. Every goal is possible and with careful planning we can achieve them all. We can focus on what we want to do today, and manage what’s happening right now, and when we do, have a better chance of reaching the destination. Spinning around in circles trying to manage many different objectives at the same time may keep us from finishing anything. We can stop and see what’s in front of us right now. There is no need to worry about what will come later, how things may change tomorrow, or what may get in the way. We need only focus on the next step forward. Each step we take will open another door ahead, and move us closer to the goal we want to accomplish. With focus and determination, we will find success. We are powerful and wise, and know what we want. There is no detour or complication that can keep us from our goals. Everything is possible, and we can have the lives we desire.

The world is full of ideas and suggestions for success. Everywhere we turn there are invitations and recommendations to do this or that to achieve something new. Those around us may offer endless advice and we can certainly listen to anything that’s helpful. But in the end the road we choose is up to us. We don’t need permission to do things our own way and never have to follow anyone else’s idea of the way ahead. We can design our lives any way we like and reach any destinations we choose.

We all have unique talents and abilities. What works for one person may not be effective for another. There are endless approaches to every goal and never only one road to any destination. Those who have reached the success we desire may tell us their way is the best way to move ahead. We can follow anyone we like, but we are intelligent and can design our own road. We know what we want, and with patience and focus, can reach any goal and find success.

Today if you’ve been trying to accomplish many things at once and feel like you’re spinning your wheels, stop and decide what you want the most. Choose the next step that will take you closer to the goal, and step forward with confidence. Take it one step at a time and you’ll reach success. You are amazing and powerful, and nothing is beyond your reach. Every goal is possible and you can make all your dreams come true.

Peanut Butter and Jelly

25 Sep

Life is filled with different experiences, locations, and people, and nothing is the same two days in a row. Sometimes things roll out easily and everything goes forward without a hitch. Other times, there are snags, delays, detours or complete stops as we try to push ahead. It’s helpful when things match up or complement each other in ways that bring quick and easy resolution. Some things just go together, like peanut butter and jelly. When that happens the road ahead is easy to travel. But life is fickle, and just when we think everything will run smoothly, something happens that brings a wrinkle to the plan and slows us down. It would be great if we could just make a plan, execute it and get to the goal without complications, but things are ever changing and nothing is predictable. When our progress is stalled and we’re facing an uphill challenge to get moving again, we may feel frustrated and confused. We may even decide the goal isn’t worth the hassle and let it go. Of course, we can do anything, and if we don’t want to push through trouble to continue on, we can turn away and move on to something else. But a life filled with unfulfilled dreams and incomplete journeys will never bring us satisfaction or happiness. It doesn’t matter what goes wrong or how the road turns. If we’re determined to achieve the goal, we can adjust our trajectory and start again. It may take longer than we planned on and may be more complicated than we imagined at the beginning, but we are strong and smart, and can do anything we want to do. All our dreams are possible, and nothing can keep us from success.

We can’t see beyond a turn in the road. We don’t know what lies ahead or who will enter the picture and change the scenery. Everything is up for grabs and there are countless complications and developments that might happen. If we’re determined to keep things the same and refuse to bend when things change, our chances of success will diminish. Roads can turn, our journey may be diverted, and we may find ourselves reversing course through no cause of our own. It’s not possible to move forward if the road we’re on is now headed in the opposite direction. We can’t prevent what may come but we can alter our plans to allow us to continue moving ahead and ensure we reach our goal.

It’s good to be confident in our decisions. We can make excellent plans and move toward any destination we desire. Sometimes everything will go exactly as we expected, but those times are rare. Usually something will go wrong or change, and we’ll have to regroup and make some modifications. We are intelligent and capable, and nothing can keep us from moving forward. Every goal is within reach and with patience and flexibility, we can go anywhere and do anything we choose.

Today if you’ve hit a big roadblock and can’t move ahead, look at all the possibilities before you. You are wise and intelligent, and nothing can hold you in place. Make a new plan and step forward with confidence. Every goal is there for you and nothing can keep you from success. Step forward and claim the destinations you seek. You are amazing and capable, and can achieve anything you desire.

Twisted Roads

12 Sep

As we’re pressing forward toward the goals we want to achieve, sometimes the road turns or we’re taken off course. Unexpected developments often occur and when they do, we may have to change direction. There will always be options for moving ahead and each choice will give us information that helps us continue forward. We’re capable of making our own decisions but there may be times when others or outside influences force us to take a direction we don’t want or don’t like. If that happens, we may be sure we’re headed the wrong way and attempt to return and start again. But life continues on and despite our best efforts we may continue to be pulled along against our will. There are endless roads to every destination and even when we’re sure we’re not headed in the right direction, sometimes we may be surprised to find we have arrived at exactly where we need to be. An unexpected change of direction can take us somewhere we didn’t know we wanted to go. Nobody knows everything and every decision we make is determined by what we can see at the moment and the information we have. There will always be more details we don’t know. The road we’re on may get twisted up and turned around, and then surprisingly take us to the very place we most want to be. It’s impossible to see the end from the beginning. We may be diverted by a turn that takes us someplace new, and enhances our experiences in ways we never imagined. Being open to every possibility will bring us unexpected blessings, and enhance our lives in rich and wonderful ways.

We always know what we want the most. We may not share our desires with anyone but we understand where we want to go and what we want to do. Confusion and disagreement don’t change our desires, and with determination we can achieve every goal we choose. Sometimes there’s a straight road ahead, but other times we may get sidetracked along the way. Life is filled with all kinds of surprises. It’s impossible to control anything outside ourselves. We can let changes happen and still move forward with confidence.

Even if we plan well and are sure we know where we’re headed, things may change. We can’t see the end from the beginning, and although we have faith we’ll reach our destination, how long that takes or where we’ll go along the way is unknown. A broken road that becomes impassable requires us to change our plans. The path may not take us to the original goal we wanted but may turn and open new doors and horizons before us. We may discover a new destination that brings us great happiness and satisfaction.

Today if you’re trying to reach a goal but everything is pushing you in a different direction, step forward with confidence. If you must change your course, be open and discover what lies ahead. You may be surprised to find great blessings and happiness waiting for you. Life is filled with unexpected changes and each has great potential. Be open and ready. The whole world is filled with possibilities. There is great success and happiness waiting for you, and you will reach it.

Limits

28 Jun

When we’re trying to accomplish something, and are exercising patience as complications arise one after the other, at some point, frustration may take hold and if the process has been long and convoluted, we may feel we’ve had enough. Everything has a limit and if we’ve reached ours, we may throw our hands up, and just let everything go. We can change our minds about anything at any time, and if we’ve had enough, we might decide it’s time to surrender to defeat and move on. It isn’t easy to keep pushing forward when each step takes a long time and there are lots of issues and problems to manage. It’s hard not to feel frustrated when advancement is slow and change isn’t happening no matter how hard we try. We can always give up and admit defeat, or push the problem off onto someone else, but there is great satisfaction and growth that comes from holding the line and continuing forward. Most issues will eventually work themselves out and we can find success. Of course, there may be times when nothing works and we need to regroup and decide if continuing to press ahead is worth our time. Often success is all about timing. Just because we aren’t able to reach the goal now, doesn’t mean it’s unattainable. Life is constantly changing and in the future our situation may allow us to move forward and get to the destination. There is no need to let frustration or anxiety take control. If we’re not progressing the way we want to, we can look at the situation objectively, weigh our options and determine how we want to proceed. Every goal is possible but they aren’t all possible today. We have all the wisdom and insight we need to adjust our course when needed and find success. Nothing is out of reach and we are perfectly capable of prevailing.

It’s impossible to see every aspect of the road ahead when we begin a journey. There will likely be some twist we didn’t imagine or some turn we couldn’t foresee. It’s the nature of life and if we’re caught unaware and confused, we may feel stuck and unable to move. It may seem the goal is out of reach and too difficult to achieve. But every journey is merely a series of steps. We can take them one at a time and process any developments that occur. We have everything we need to reach any goal we desire. Every answer is there for us and we will find them.

If we’ve been on the same road pushing forward for a while, and we’re tired and overwhelmed at how much has been required to push ahead, we may feel it’s too hard to keep going. If we no longer want the goal, we can certainly step off the path and do something else. But if the destination is still important to us, we can take a break, and when we feel renewed, return and continue on. We’re powerful, and capable of finding our way forward. Nothing is too difficult or complex for us to figure out, and with time and patience, we will succeed.

Today if you’ve been pushing ahead through complications and problems, and are beginning to tire of the journey, think about what you want the most. If your desires have changed, redirect your course. If you still want to reach the goal, take a break until you feel refreshed, and start again. You can do anything. Success is just ahead.
