Everyone Else

27 Feb

We live in a time bombarded with information. With a single touch we can open ports to endless facts, opinions, and unlimited ideas about every possible subject. It’s good to be able to find data and clues when we need them, but it’s possible to get overloaded and distracted when there is so much available. We can read unending comments and opinions from people we don’t know and probably will never meet, and if we want to, could spend all our time learning about everyone else’s ideas and thoughts. If we constantly tune into what others are saying, and spend our time reading about what they think and what they’re doing, it may leave little time for us to actually live our own lives. We can’t be in two places at the same time. If we spend hours reading about others and their lives, we lose the opportunity to get up and live our own. We can’t focus on our own personal desires and goals while we’re reading about someone else’s. Our lives are important and priceless, and deserve our attention. There are endless goals we can achieve, and incredible destinations waiting for us. We can take control, monitor our time with everyone else, and ensure we do what’s most important to us. We can have the lives we dream about if we plan for them and then do what is needed to achieve them. Instead of focusing on all the interesting things others are doing, we can turn our sights forward toward the goals we most want to achieve. There is great happiness ahead and nothing can hold us in place. All our dreams are possible and we can do anything.

Notoriety can give a false sense of importance. Just because someone is well-known or famous doesn’t necessarily mean their opinions and ideas are germane to our lives. Everyone has their own version of how they think life should go, and there is not one perfect way to live. A big microphone allows people to share their voice with many others, but it doesn’t mean they have all the answers. We can listen to any advice given, and then choose our own way forward. We know what we want and where we want to go. We can trust ourselves to find the best road ahead toward the destinations we desire most.

Our personal perceptions of life reflect the experiences we’ve had and the understanding we’ve gained about the world around us. Therefore, one person’s interpretation about how things are will be different from someone else’s. Differences don’t mean one is right and one is wrong. There are endless ways to view the same ideas and situations. All have value, and express our individualism. We can choose the kind of lives we want, and then make decisions that bring them to us. Every opportunity is there for us, and everything is possible. We can go anywhere and do anything, and with determination will reach success.

Today if you’ve been listening to everyone else’s ideas about what you should do and how you should live, trust yourself. You already know what you want, and have everything you need to achieve it. Every road is there for you and you can do anything. Decide what you want, and then go get it. Success is waiting, and you will reach it.

The Choice is Yours

24 Oct

We all have the ability to make whatever decisions we choose.  We can direct our lives and decide which roads we want to take.  But sometimes those close to us or those with authority over us have different ideas about what we should do.  They may voice their opinions and hope we’ll change our minds, and if we don’t may bring pressure to bear until we give in.  We may ultimately choose a path we don’t want because it’s important to someone we care about, or we are forced because of circumstance, or we are tired of the disagreement and just want to move forward even if it’s in a direction we haven’t chosen.  We may give up trying to explain our point of view and simply take the path we’re pressured to take.  Sometimes those choices will work out and sometimes we’ll end up somewhere we don’t want to be and will have to backtrack and find our way again.  We all have personal inspiration about our lives and we know what’s best for us.  Even if everyone else thinks we should go one way, we can still choose the path we determine we need to take.  It isn’t comfortable to be in conflict with those around us but if we are steadfast and respectful of our differences we may proceed with confidence and in time the conflict will resolve.

When we follow along with decisions we haven’t chosen and things go well we may feel great relief and learn new things that help us going forward.  There are limitless paths we can travel and if we end up on foreign territory we may feel unsettled and unsure.  But each step we take moves us forward and if we are headed to the goal we’re seeking, even if it’s in a different direction than we would have chosen, we will find success.  We never know what we don’t know and sometimes those around us have more information and can see more clearly going forward.  If we are following along we will find new experiences as we go and once the goal is reached our understanding of the situation will be enriched.  Sometimes it doesn’t matter which way we travel as long as we reach the right destination.

However, sometimes after agreeing to take a path we didn’t choose things go wrong.  There may be difficult complications we may have avoided or roadblocks that require us to start again and again.  It’s easy at times like that to imagine our choice would have been better but the fact is, we are living our choice.  If we decide to go along with someone else’s ideas instead of our own, we choose to take what comes.  We have all the power we need to direct our lives and we own every decision we make.  If we go along with others and things go badly we own the road just as much as those who pressured us into taking it.  We can be honest about our part in the decision no matter what happens.  If things go wrong we can work to find the right direction and correct our course.

Today if you’re being pressured to go one way and you want to go another you may make the decision that is best for you.  You may choose your own path or go along with something else.  But remember the decision is yours.  Use your best judgment and choose the path that’s best for you.  You have everything you need to find success.
