Copy Cat

19 Oct

There are endless opinions and ideas floating around us all the time. The world is filled with differing viewpoints and there are limitless choices we can make. Although we can design our lives any way we like, we may face a time when there is pressure to conform. If the voices around us are powerful and loud, even if we disagree, we may decide to go along. Going along to get along is easier than standing our ground, and if we’re unsure or timid, we may buckle. Conforming may make the road ahead a little easier to navigate, but choosing someone else’s road will only take us where they’re going, and will never lead us to our own destinations. Copying someone else’s choices or behaviors will not enable us to live a clear, authentic life. We are unique. There isn’t anyone else like us in the whole universe and nobody can offer the gifts we have to share. Although it may be easier to go along to get along, nothing will bring us more satisfaction and happiness than choosing our own way. We all have so much to offer, and can be confident that our voices are important. We can be polite and patient, listen to every suggestion offered, and then choose our own path. We know what we want, and are strong enough, and wise enough to find our way forward. Choosing to be who we are, and honoring our own uniqueness will open new doors and pave the road ahead. Every dream we seek is there, waiting for us. By being honest with ourselves, and doing what we value most, we will find great reward and fulfillment. Nothing can keep us from anything we desire. By standing strong and stepping forward, we will reach every destination and success.

Some people are very confident and believe they have all the answers. They may tell us what we should do, how we should do it and where we should go. We can take any advice we like, but nobody, no matter how smart they think they are, can possibly know us better than we know ourselves. Our lives belong to us and we can do anything. By being true to who we are and what we want, we will reach every goal and find great happiness.

The power of the group can be intense. It’s easier to work with others if everyone follows the same path, but differences bring great depth and variety to our experience. There are endless roads to every destination and never one perfect way forward. By trusting ourselves, we can speak up and share our perspective. Everyone has something to offer and if we allow all voices to be heard, our experience will be enriched and deepened.

Today if you’ve been copying someone else’s choice because it’s easier or you are unsure, trust yourself. You already know exactly what you want. Decide on your goal, and take the first step forward. You are stronger and more powerful than you imagine. Every single dream is there for you, and you will reach them all.

Hedge Fund

16 Jan

When we want something very badly and we aren’t sure we can accomplish it, we may hedge our bet to try to increase our odds. For instance, if we’re dating someone we like but aren’t sure the relationship will go anywhere, we may decide to date someone else on the side. That way, if one situation ends, we’ll have the other to fall back on. Or if we want someone to believe in us but know we can’t give them what they need, we may fabricate stories about our plans and pretend to do things in ways that will bring them closer. We may think if we can get them on board we’ll figure out how to keep them there later. Hedging our bet is a way to negate any loss that may come. In some arenas, it’s not a bad idea, but when interacting with others, it can be dangerous. Working behind the scenes may work against us. If those involved discover what we’re doing, we may lose everything. Nobody appreciates dishonesty and if our subterfuge is uncovered, the goal we’re seeking may be lost. Forever. When we want something, the best choice is to honestly and openly express our desire for it, and then do what is needed to achieve it. There isn’t anything we can’t do and we can gain whatever we’re seeking with honor. We don’t need to hedge our bet to win. We can win by doing our best.

The world is filled with all kinds of ideas. There are many ways to accomplish anything and if we choose to manipulate a situation, our options increase. If we aren’t sure we can get to our goal, we may choose to creatively shape our actions and frame our ideas in ways that make them seem more attractive. There is nothing wrong with enhancing our approach to make it more successful, but if we do it using trickery or pretense, we may get to the goal but our success may be precarious. Truth always rises and once all the facts are uncovered we may lose in the end. It does no good to gain something that slips through our fingers once our deceptive methods have been uncovered.

There are times when we may be unsure we can accomplish what we we’re seeking. We may think we don’t have the tools needed to get there or others involved will not receive us. We can talk ourselves out of any goal if our desire to achieve it isn’t strong enough. But there really isn’t anything we can’t accomplish. We have everything we need to succeed and even if we aren’t sure, we can go forward step by step and get to the goal. Manipulation, deceit, duplicity and trickery are tools for the weak. We are strong enough to move forward being honest and clear in our objective and we will succeed. We don’t need to hedge our bets. We have everything we need already.

Today if you’re thinking of manipulating a situation to get what you want, remember your integrity. You already have everything you need to succeed and you can win by being honest and sincere. There isn’t anything you can’t accomplish. Be the best you can be today and make your decisions based on the high standards you cherish. You are a gift to the world. Set the example for good and choose well.
