Deep

1 Oct

We will face innumerable challenges in our lives. Some trials are seriously hard and there may be times when we don’t believe we’ll survive. Hard times will come, we may face our most dreaded fears, and we may suffer intensely as we try to get through. Nobody can predict what life will bring, and there is no way to see what’s around the next corner. Things may happen we know nothing about that bring us hardship and difficulty. The future is unknown, and our paths may change suddenly and without warning. Although we may feel unsure and threatened, we have already overcome many troublesome and challenging times, and we can be confident we can conquer whatever we must. We have great reserves of courage and stamina within us and when we’re up against harsh and punishing winds, can dig deep and capture them. We may be pushed to our limits, but we will never be so pressed we can’t prevail. We don’t need to cower or surrender to anything. We are stronger and more powerful than we imagine, and no matter what is happening or where we are, we already possess everything needed to succeed. By trusting ourselves, and standing firm, we can continue forward and find every answer. Nothing can stop us or hold us down forever. Every destination is there for us, and we can reach them all.

Some people are very loud and bossy. When they want something, they may try to intimidate us by being forceful and demanding. They can do anything they like, but we are in control of our own lives. If we’re under their authority we may have to comply, but if not, we don’t have to buckle. They may be louder or bigger, or have more power than we do, but we’re in charge of our own decisions and can choose whatever we like. Our lives are ours to design and we can be confident in choosing our own way.

When we’re trying to accomplish a big goal, and we’ve been pushing toward it for a long time, and still the end of the road is far off, we may begin to tire and question our motives. When we’re weary and frustrated, it’s easy to give up. If the goal is important to us, it doesn’t matter how hard it is to achieve or how long it takes. We can manage whatever we must to make it ours. We can dig deep, and confirm our resolve to push forward. Every dream is possible and with determination and focus, we can reach them all.

Today if you’re facing a daunting situation and aren’t sure you can get through, trust yourself. You are mighty and powerful, and nothing is too difficult for you to manage. All the answers you need are already there for you. Stand strong and step forward. Be confident and sure. Success is just ahead, and you will reach it.

Waiting

1 Jun

The world is huge and there are unlimited opportunities to do something new. We may think about something we want to accomplish, consider all the possibilities, and ponder how it will be when we reach the goal. We can think about what we want indefinitely and wait for the right time to arrive before we begin. While there are times in everyone’s life when there are complications and we can’t manage anything new, waiting for the perfect time to start on something we really want is a fool’s game. There are few, if any, times when everything lines up and we can see a paved road ahead to the destinations we desire. It’s like waiting on a shooting star. Yes, they happen, but standing in the dark night after night looking up at the sky and hoping one will appear before we begin forward is wasted time. We don’t need a perfect opening to start a new journey. We can begin at any time, no matter where we are or what’s going on, and figure out how to proceed. Life is complex and there is no way to predict what will happen next. Waiting around for the perfect, easy moment to move ahead will only hold us in place. If we want the goal, and are ready to proceed, we can take the first steps forward. We may need to re-organize our responsibilities, and plan carefully, but we have everything necessary to begin. Once we start moving toward the goal, we will find all the answers we need to reach success. Every single destination is there for us. The lives we dream of are possible. We need only decide what we want, and then step forward to make it ours. Every dream is waiting, and with determination and focus, we can make them ours.

There are endless reasons why we shouldn’t move toward our personal goals. They may take a lot of planning, they might require a lot of time, we may have to change our routine, and a million other possible complications. We can put our dreams on hold for now, and plan to get to them later, and that might work. But if we don’t control where we’re headed, chances are the details of our lives will take over. If we want to reach our personal goals, we must drive our own train toward them. There isn’t anything we can’t accomplish if we really want it.

Work has a way of expanding to fill the time we give it. If our to-do list is long, and we don’t set aside time for our own personal growth, we may spend all our time checking off boxes and going nowhere. Our lives belong to us and we are responsible for our own happiness. It isn’t selfish to focus on what we want the most. By making our personal goals a priority, and setting aside time and attention to achieve them, we’ll find great satisfaction and happiness in reaching success.

Today if you’ve been putting off your personal goals and waiting until the time is right to begin, look at all the options before you. The road to every goal is there for you. Decide what you want the most and take the first step forward. Keep your eyes focused ahead and begin your journey. Every destination is waiting, and nothing can keep you from success.

Mandatory

24 May

There’s a lot going on all around us all the time, and our lives are often busy with responsibilities, details, tasks, and endless interruptions. Our “To Do” lists can be very long, and no matter how efficient we are or how hard we try to be effective, there will always be more to do than we will ever get done. There is a continual round of endless tasks and unlimited details that need our attention. It’s easy to get caught up and just rush from one thing to another, and if those around us need a lot of support, we may get burdened and overwhelmed. Each day is a gift and how we spend it will determine what we get out of it. If all we do is spend our time checking off boxes, we may lose sight of what’s most important. When things get out of hand and we’re so busy we can’t see straight, it’s impossible to think about what we most want and where we really want to go. When there’s a lot of static, it’s hard to hear the music. There may be a lot to do, but nothing is mandatory but breathing. That’s all. The other stuff may be important, but is circumstantial and superfluous to our existence. We’re in control of everything we do and how spend our time. We don’t have to do everything today to move forward. We can stop, take a break, look objectively at all that lies before us, and decide how we want to manage it and move ahead. Being busy doesn’t always mean we’re moving closer to our goals. By prioritizing what is most important to us individually, and then choosing what will move us ahead, we will reach success. We can take time out for our own good health, and do things that refresh us and give us additional strength. With planning and focus, we will accomplish much and still be able to reach our desired destinations.

There are people around us most of the time. They may request our help with something and if we can fit it into our schedules, we may agree. Not everyone is confident and there may be someone who continually asks us to do things for them because they are scared to do it themselves or are unsure about how to proceed. We’re all responsible for our own lives, and our personal goals are important. We can decide how much time we can give and still be sure we achieve our own goals.

Sometimes we may be tasked with something we’re told is absolutely imperative and must be done immediately. If there is a crisis or a time requirement for the task, we may need to drop everything to address it, but most things are not critical. As we decide what is most important in our lives, we can choose how we’ll spend our time. Everyone’s goals are important, and we are responsible for achieving our own.

Today if you’ve been working on many tasks but aren’t moving closer to your goals, think about what’s most important. Your time is valuable, and your dreams are important. Make a plan to accomplish the goal you most desire, and you will find great satisfaction and happiness when you achieve it. Every dream is possible, and with focus and determination, you can have the life you want the most. Be confident and stand strong. Nothing can keep you from success.

Nothing Bigger

23 Dec

Life is full of possibilities. There are endless roads to travel and unlimited things to accomplish. We can do anything we desire and reach any destination we like. The world is a big place filled with unlimited options. When we think about everything possible, we might think we want something bigger than ourselves. It’s good to reach for something beyond our grasp, but it’s impossible to find anything bigger than ourselves. We are the number one focus of our lives. If we don’t attend to our personal needs and desires, it will be nearly impossible to succeed at anything else. Our personal safety and health must take priority if we intend to reach our goals. Ignoring what we need to thrive will rob us of the vibrance we need to succeed. There are a lot of demands on us much of the time and it’s easy to put off our own needs while we tend to others. If we aren’t careful, we may find all our time is taken in service and assignments. Sacrificing our time to help and serve those around us is noble, but if we give everything away and keep nothing for ourselves, we will ultimately fail. Success comes when we find the balance between giving and taking. It’s not selfish to take excellent care of ourselves – it’s wise. When we make sure our personal needs are met, getting enough sleep, eating well, and getting the exercise we need to be strong, the road ahead is easy. If we suffer neglect, we won’t have the energy or strength to give our very best. Time for ourselves must be a priority if we want to reach our goals and do everything we desire. There is nothing bigger or more important. We are intelligent and capable of making excellent decisions. By valuing our personal best and doing what is needed to ensure we can offer it, we will reach success in every endeavor. Every goal is possible, and with wisdom and clarity, we will reach them.

We live in a time of information overload. We are constantly bombarded with directions and advice about how to live, what to do, and where to go. There is no end to the suggestions we may receive, and we must filter it to fit into our own needs and desires. Our goal is never to do everything everyone else thinks we should do, but to do the one thing we want most to accomplish. It doesn’t have to match anyone else’s ideas. We can choose our own road ahead and move toward success.

Preparation is the key to any successful venture. If we want to be strong and vibrant, we must do what is needed to get there. Desiring success will not magically make it happen. We must first define what we want, then move forward with confidence. Strength comes from struggle and hard work. We are more powerful than we realize and can accomplish anything we desire. By preparing carefully, and moving forward with determination and clarity, we will prevail.

Today if you’ve been sacrificing your own needs for work or service, remember you are the most important person in your life. By caring for yourself you will more effectively move ahead and reach greater heights of success. Be mindful and prepare. Every success is there for you, and with focus and wisdom, you will make them yours.

Still Here

10 Dec

We have many different experiences as we go through our lives. Some of them are fun and easy, and others not so much. There are endless things that can happen and everyone around us – those we know and those we don’t – are constantly making choices that may impact us in ways we never expected. We only have control over what we do, and we never know what each day will bring. When a difficult situation arises, or there is a decision we’re unsure about, we might try to simply ignore it, hoping it will resolve itself and we won’t have to address it. That might work, but most of the time what we set aside will remain and wait for us to come back. Unresolved issues don’t usually just go away. They stay with us, niggling at us from the far reaches of our consciousness and remain until we do what is necessary to settle them once and for all. We can try to run from it but it’s impossible to successfully run from something that’s inside us. Wherever we go, whatever we do, it will be there. We can look the other way, ignore the promptings to address it, convince ourselves it will go away, but it’s impossible to remove it until we address it. We are capable of handling anything that comes to us. It doesn’t matter how hard or how complicated it is to resolve, or how painful it is to open the door. We can stand firm and do what is needed to solve any problem and settle any trouble. We can trust ourselves to find the answers we need and move forward with confidence. Nothing is too difficult for us to manage. We have all the power and courage we need to do anything.

When we have something we don’t want right now, but aren’t ready to get rid of, we may store it in a closet. We can put it inside, close the door and forget about it. We can try to do the same thing when there is something difficult we don’t want to face. Tucking it away in our minds may make it seem to disappear, but unlike being tucked in a closet, what’s unsettled in our thoughts will continually remind us it’s there. Unresolved issues never go away. We deserve complete happiness. By settling any decision or situation that needs our attention, we can move forward with clarity, sure of success.

What seems impossibly hard before we start often becomes clear and workable once we begin. We learn as we go and each step we take, and each door we open, brings more information and lights the way forward. The most impossible situations become workable and we find the solutions we need to solve any problem before us. We are brave enough and smart enough to face anything and find our way through. Nothing is powerful enough to overcome us, and every blessing is possible.

Today if you’ve been avoiding a difficult situation, remember how smart and wise you are. You’ve been successful in settling and solving many hard problems, and have everything you need to do anything you must. Be confident and trust yourself. Open all the doors and move forward with clarity. You are amazing and powerful, and nothing is strong enough to hold you down.
