Flight Plan

20 Sep

When flying a plane, the pilot doesn’t simply enter the course information into the flight computer and then lie back and relax. There are many factors that affect the plane’s trajectory and altitude, and the pilot must constantly watch what’s happening and continually make small changes to correct course. Auto pilot can assist but will not perceptively re-adjust for storms, winds or other complications, so the pilot must always be awake and aware. In our lives, we make plans for the things we want to do. We know where we want to go and what we want to accomplish and can review every option until we come up with the best plan for achieving the goal. We may make a list of things to accomplish in a specific order, or create a map of exactly how we’re going to proceed. It all looks good on paper and if we get lucky, and everything works in our favor, all may go exactly as planned. But life is complex and there are usually unforeseen complications, unplanned detours and unexpected problems. Our original plan may have been good, it may have been perfect on paper, but once we start to implement it, we may find that what works on paper may not translate into real life exactly as planned. Nobody can read the future or see what’s coming. There is no way to predict how things will go or what will arise. If we want to succeed, just like the pilot, we must find a way to constantly adjust our course. Everything is possible, but the road ahead may not be straight and paved. We are intelligent and if the goal is important enough, we will find our way no matter what happens. By thinking clearly and trusting ourselves, we can do anything we desire and find great success.

Everyone is different and our ideas are unique and specific to our own lives. If everyone was just like us, we could predict what they would do and how they would act, but that isn’t the case. We may think others will respond a certain way based on what we would do, only to be surprised that we were way off base. It doesn’t mean anyone’s response is wrong, but points to the differences between us. Our intentions may be misunderstood because our paradigms are different than those we are interacting with. The best we can do is get as much information as possible before we proceed, and then move forward. Then if things don’t go the way we planned, we can adjust and continue on.

Some people are so sure of themselves that even when it’s obvious their plan isn’t working, will hold fast to it hoping if they just keep doing the same things eventually it’ll all work out. If we’re going in the wrong direction, continuing to press forward will never take us to the goal. By keeping our eyes open, and being willing to change course if needed, we can move ahead and be confident of success. Life is all about change and no matter where we are or what’s happening, if we want to achieve the goal, we can do what is needed to make it ours.

Today if you’ve been pushing toward a destination you desire but are no closer, stop and look at everything objectively. Choose the best way forward and adjust your plan. Keep your eyes open and as things change, modify your direction so you can stay on course. You are very smart and highly capable, and nothing is out of reach. Be confident but remain open to change. You know what you want and every destination is there for you. Success is waiting, and you will reach it.

The End is Near

25 Jan

Life is full of challenges and we face new situations every day. There is no way to see the future and the road we’re on may turn and take us someplace entirely unexpected. That might be something fun and interesting or it could turn out to be something that brings great duress and difficulty. We all face trouble from time to time, and when something intensely negative happens that seriously impacts our progress and is filled with complications, we may feel overwhelmed and unable to move. If we’re completely lost and have no idea how to proceed, we may think there is no way we’ll ever survive, and feel like giving up and just surrendering. Of course, we can do anything we like, and if we want to throw our hands up, and run away, we can, but that will give us nothing of value to carry forward. Even if we’re sure the end is near and we’re going down in flames, chances are there are options and possibilities we haven’t yet tried. Nobody has all the answers all the time, but we have everything we need to find the answers we don’t already possess. By trusting ourselves and remembering how capable and strong we are, we will find the way forward. There will never be a situation so terrible and complex we won’t be able to figure it out. If we need help, we can get it. If we need more skills, we can obtain them. Everything necessary to move us ahead will be there for us if we take the time we need to uncover the answers available. We are more powerful than we realize, and with patience and focus, will find our way ahead. Every single destination is possible, and nothing can hold us in place forever. We are perfectly able to unravel every complication and problem before us and reach success.

Everyone has their own opinions about what is possible and how to proceed. They may tell us they doubt we’ll succeed, and know we’ll never be strong enough to conquer the goal. That is their opinion, to which they are completely entitled. But opinions are just that – opinions. They aren’t facts and don’t predict the future. We are in control of what we do and can determine where we’ll go and what we’ll accomplish. Although it would be nice to have agreement and validation when we’re struggling along, we don’t need it to prevail. We know who we are and what we want, and nothing can keep us from success.

Self confidence is important when we’re trying to overcome a difficult challenge. If we don’t believe we will prevail, odds are we won’t. There really isn’t anything we can’t overcome and manage. If we stand strong, no matter what lies before us or how unsettled we feel, and pull on our inner courage and wisdom, nothing can keep us from success. Our lives are ours to design. We can do anything and go anywhere. By believing in ourselves and stepping forward with confidence, every destination will be ours.

Today if you’re facing a very difficult and daunting challenge, and doubt you can succeed, trust yourself. You are stronger and more powerful than you believe. Nothing can hold you in place. Every dream is possible, and you will win.

Stopping the Wave

14 May

We make millions of decisions as we go through our lives. One thing always leads to another and each decision we make turns our lives a little this way or that. Sometimes what seems to be an insignificant and unimportant choice may surprise us by turning our lives in a direction we didn’t anticipate. Our choices can be far reaching, and we may feel the ramifications of them for a long time. It’s like a wave in the ocean that travels for hundreds of miles before finally breaking on the shore. A thousand things could change because of one simple choice and we may end up somewhere we never intended to go. One event triggers another, and then another, and before we know it one little decision may have changed everything. Although we can’t control those around us, we always have control over ourselves. If we’re paying attention and see we’re going somewhere we don’t want, we can stop and change direction. We can adjust our choices and stop the wave from continuing any further. We never have to complete any journey that’s taking us away from where we want to go. We can apply the brakes, stand still and review our options, and then redirect our course toward the goals we want to achieve. Our lives belong to us. If we’ve made a mistake, we can correct it. If we’re going the wrong way, we can turn around. Everything is in our power and we can do anything we want. By taking control and choosing our next step forward, we can reach any destination we desire. Every dream is possible and with determination and focus, we will reach them.

There are times when it may feel that life has its own direction and we’re being swept along without any choice. One thing is certain, if we don’t decide where we want to go and do what is needed to get there, circumstances and others may decide for us. Other people may make decisions about what we need to do and where we need to go, and if we don’t take control, we may end up like a leaf on the wind, going here and there without any destination in mind. Our lives are ours to design and with purpose and determination, we can achieve any goal we choose.

If we’ve made a decision that has had difficult and far reaching consequences, we may feel we’ve ruined our lives and there is no way to correct the situation. Nothing is permanent and we can change anything at any time. It may take a lot of effort, but we’re strong enough to manage whatever is necessary. It may take a lot of time, but we will move forward with each step we take. Nothing is too difficult or complicated for us to change and with focus and dedication we can move in the direction we want to go and make our dreams come true.

Today if you feel like you’re caught in a wave moving you toward somewhere you don’t want to go, remember you’re in control of your life. Turn toward what you most want to achieve and take control of the way forward. Nothing is out of reach and you have all the courage and wisdom you need to find your way. Every dream is possible and you are strong enough, and smart enough to achieve anything. Choose your next step and move toward your goal. Every success is possible and you will achieve it.

Finding Balance

22 May

Life is busy and there are always a lot of things going on. No matter what we’re facing we can center ourselves and stand strong. The middle of anything must be stable in order to find balance. If it leans a little to one side or is weak, everything will fall over. We understand this when it comes to physical things we are trying to settle but the same is true within ourselves. When we’re in the midst of turmoil or stress, or a storm is raging around us, the only way to stand strong and straight is make sure we’re centered and focused on the way ahead. Distractions will always be a factor and if we look away and drop our focus we may falter and lose our balance. If we’re off kilter and leaning far in any direction but forward we may fall and take ourselves far from where we want to go. Learning to balance the many things we deal with every day takes practice. We must prioritize what is most important and find a way to accomplish them to keep us moving forward. There isn’t any destination we can’t reach and planning and concentrating on the goal will ensure we get there. No road is paved in gold and there will always be complications and unforeseen developments that tangle us up and muddy the way forward. They may push against us and require our time and effort to resolve but they need not knock us off course. We are capable of managing anything that comes and still continuing toward the goal. We can strengthen our resolve, settle our concerns and regain our balance. Every goal is possible and nothing is complex enough to keep us from success. We can stand strong even when the winds are heavy and push forward with confidence.

When we’re in a difficult situation and there are a lot of things going on we may feel we’re being pelted by an unlimited number of issues and begin to lose our balance. It can be hard to find the road ahead when all we can see is confusion and complication. There is no way to solve many problems at once but by standing firm we can solve one at a time until the situation is manageable. There isn’t anything too hard for us to unravel and we will always find the answers we need. We can be confident that we’ll find the way through and reach success.

Life teaches us something new with everything we experience. We carry those lessons forward with us to help us navigate new situations and challenges. We can rely on our personal strength and confidence to anchor us and help us when things become difficult and the winds start to blow. We’ve overcome many difficulties already and have all the wisdom we need to move forward and reach any goal we desire. We know who we are and what we want. Nothing can keep us from any destination we choose. We are powerful and wise and will always prevail.

Today if you’ve lost your balance because of what’s going on around you, remember how powerful and strong you are. Stand straight and step ahead. There isn’t anything you can’t understand and overcome. You are wise and courageous and nothing is out of reach. Be confident. All options are available and nothing is too far away. Every success is possible and you have everything you need to win.

Hanging On

13 Mar

Everything we experience in life goes forward with us. Good times and happy moments, or disappointments and catastrophes, come with us as we move ahead. Whatever we experience becomes part of who we are. How much influence our past has over our lives is up to us. Happy times may give us optimism for what lies ahead, and problems may hold us back from venturing forward. The past lies behind us and no matter how events affected us when they occurred, it’s up to us how much power they have going forward. If we’ve been through a heartbreaking and difficult experience and still feel the sting, we may be unable to let go of the pain enough to find joy. We can hold on tight to disappointment and sorrow and drag it through our lives indefinitely. We may keep the reminders of what went wrong bright in our minds until we have the courage to let them go. Letting go of pain will not diminish what has happened. We can understand how our lives have been impacted, accept the changes that have occurred, and still find our way to happiness. We don’t have to hang onto sorrow any longer than we want to. We can let it go, set it down, and walk away knowing what we’ve learned will help us as we move ahead. Life is filled with all kinds of experiences. Some of them may devastate us and at times we may believe we’ll never be happy again. We can’t stop sorrow from coming but happiness is our responsibility and when we’re ready, we will have it again. Our lives are precious and valuable. No matter what we may face, we can find our way to peace and joy. Every day brings new promise and there isn’t anything we can’t do.

Personal heartbreak is a painful and agonizing experience. If we’ve been betrayed, or lied to, or everything we believed turned out to be false, we may be stunned and stopped in our tracks. It’s hard to find our footing when everything we thought was solid turns out to be shifting sand. When we’re slipping around trying to find our way, we can have confidence and trust in our ability to overcome. There isn’t anything powerful enough to hold us in place indefinitely. We know who we are, we know what we want, and we will find our way through.

Intense disappointment and sorrow may make us doubt our personal worth and ability to succeed. We may believe nothing will ever be right again, and we’ll be stuck in misery forever. Nothing in life is permanent and no matter what we’re going through, no matter how fierce it seems right now, it will change. There is no wind strong enough to blow us down. There is no suffering powerful enough to last forever. We have everything we need to step forward and find release. We are in control of our lives and will prevail.

Today if you’ve had a serious disappointment and feel frozen and unable to move, remember how strong and powerful you are. There isn’t anything capable of holding you down. You are wise and strong and have all the confidence you need to overcome anything. Take a step forward toward the light. Great happiness is waiting for you. Everything you need is just ahead. Move toward it and you will succeed.
